SOURCE: having trouble in putting filter back after omega

Try inserting it into the back first, then the front. One side is spring loaded and the filter has to be inserted against the spring first, and depressing it, while the other end is pushed up into the filter frame and released to secure it in the frame.

Leisure rite spa has fault code f2

The F2 Error Code is usually from a Balboa sp pack / system and normally is referring to a flow issue in your hot tub.

The usual culprit is a dirty filter, so make sure to either replace or give your hot tub filter a good cleaning. Also look at your intakes and out takes and make sure they are clear of debris.

We have a filter cleaning guide located here:

You should also first cut the power to the unit and let it cool down and then reset it.

If this doesn't clear the problem up, you are probably going to need to start looking at water flow restrictions, such as air bubbles in the piping. A good flush will usually clear all of that out, without having to crack open any of the plumbing.

Last but not least, if none of that works, you are going to need to start looking at fuses, heating element, or the circuit board if all other trouble shooting does not fix your error.

The best advice here is that if cleaning or replacing the filter doesn't solve it, and then flushing out the system doesn't work, call a spa tech and have them come out. Unless you are a qualified spa tech, messing with the heater or circuit board is usually not advised.

Hope that helps.

Low flow message on balboa 500z system

The low flow message on any Balboa means that you are having an issue with the flow of water through your heating unit. This can be caused by a few things.

  • Low water levels
  • Dirty filters
  • Something is impeding your water flow
Top up your water level and make sure it is where it needs to be, clean your filters or replace them, and check that nothing is impeding your water flow at the skimmer or water intakes.

Here is a link to water flow issues.

Hi I am having trouble getting consistent power. I have taken it apart and cleaned it thouroughly only to find that the problem still remains. Any suggestions?

Try bumping the filter. You might have D.E. coated with normal accumulation of pool dirt, algae, etc. Your pool filters pump strainer or skimmer baskets could be clogged. Make sure there are no obstructions in your impeller. Finally, check the cover gasket, hand knobs, hose, clamps, etc. Replace or tighten as necessary.

Spa heater

You probally hear the fan at start up. If the heater won't fire the unit will shut down. This is probally an ignition problem or something in the safty circut. If you have your book on this it should have a trouble shooters guide. If your not comfortable with a box full of fire you may want to get a service person out.

I have a brand new hayward filter for an in ground pool. The system uses D.E. The problem I'm having is after it's running for approx 30 minutes it looses all pressure. I've tried back washing it...

you might change out the D.E. media. you can also run it without any media to see if it looses the pressure after 30 min. mor than likely it is just time to change.
