    Most likely the thermostat is malfunctioning. What type of thermostat is it, and where is it located? Charlie

It is a Total Hayward System. The thermostat and, control box, freeze protection unit is located in my back yard behind a fence. When you say the thermostat is probably malfunctioning, do you mean the...

It is hard to say with very little information in your problem. But if your having problems with a temp control of any kind and things run but not at the right time the first place to look is your temp sensor. this is a cilinder usually copper or stanless steel about half the size of a ciggeret and a little smaller around with two wires coming out of the end of it. If it reads water it will be inside a pipe and you just have to follow the wires. If it is a air sensor it will probally be just below the control box and ether hanging free or mounted to the wall, but it should be in the shade. If this is on a heater it will be found inside the unit usually on the main water header.

Understanding how to use spa with freeze protection on

freeze protection will always be on. when you're done using the spa just push the heater/spa button. it will turn off. when ever the air temp drops below 37-39 degrees the air sensor will tell the system the it's getting cold and it will kick on the pump. you can change the it under settings menu if you want other pumps to come besides the filter pump
