Question about Balboa Instruments Duplex Digital Panel 2 Pump

1 Answer

I have a balboa 8 man spa. We shut it off to drain and clean. When we were done it would not turn back on. Tub was working fine, but now it keeps tripping the gfi. After some trouble shooting. I got it to turn on but had to disconnect one of the 220 volt copper terminals on the heater. The tub powered up and all the jets worked. Am I right to thinks that the heater needs replaced? if so how do they come apart. Where can I get instruction on the heater removal.

YES it is the heater that is at fault.
you have 2 white water pipes that attach to heater that will need to be unscrewed (best to do with spa empty) and it depends on what control system you as to advise on heater removal. some heaters have pressure switches and others have 2x sensors or they may have both. also your heater will be held into place by brackets that are normally 8mm

I found the drain snakes very helpful to unclog a drain even it is a bathtub. Dran snake found both hand cranked and power cranked. for home use, the hand crank is enough but for professional plumbing power cranked drank snake is best.

have you cleaned your filter recently. Sound like there may be a low flow error in low speed
either that or the start capacitor on your pump is bad and the pump will not come on in low speed unless you first give it a boost in high speed
anytime you ask for heat with insufficient flow there will be an error message

I just bought a used balboa hot tub and have no expertise. Does the pump kick in automatically even when you turn it off it will turn back on instantly? Is that normal? If it is not normal what could be...


This does not sound normal, but in order to better diagnose this I need to know exactly what model of controls your spa has. This is easily found on a label on top of the control box in the spa cabinet. If the label is missing, then remove the control box cover and look at the inside of the cover for the schematic, should be a model number on it.

I have a 2004 great lakes hot tub with a balboa controler. My hot tub heats up fine when the pump runs on high but the temp light never comes on when the pump runs in low.


check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

Hot tub maintenance


there will be the same amount of basic maintenance on either spa. The difference will be in water chemistry. you definitely want an ozone generator on either spa. Both are awesome Mfg of spas. they both have been around since the 1980's
Ozone will keep the water cleaner, fresher smelling and reduce the total amount of traditional chemicals used in any hot tub.
There are many other solutions for taking care of water chemistry out there without using the traditional types.
some are all natural.
