FL stands for Flow. It is a diagnostic code that is indicating that either the the flow/pressure switch has failed, or the pump is not pumping enough water to operate the spa safely.
If it is the pump, you might try to lean out the impeller housing as its common to see a pine needle or other such blockage affecting the pump.
If its the switch, just buy another generic switch and swap it out. It would only take a few minutes.

Water not pumping


Is the pump running? If so I would say you lost your impeller. If not running I would check for a circuit breaker for the motor.

What does the "FL" code


Fl stands for FLOW error code. This means that either the pump is not pushing enough water, or the pressure switch that senses water flow through the heater is not functioning. This are inexpensive and easy to fix yourself if it is just the pressure switch. Look on or near your heating element for a small disk switch with two wires coming out of it. Remove and replace this part.

I have a Jacuzzi Z 145 spa. I was constantly getting an FL error. Purchased a new switch, put it on and when I turn the spa on I immediately get a circuit blow. What could be causing this problem?


Its possible your heater has a ground fault. If the old pressure sw was giving the FL code the system would not send power to the heater. Now with the new sw working power is being sent to the heater.

My jacuzzie starts and stops wen it is runing i have a fl code


FL is a flow error, you may not have enough water going over filter housing. Jets are they open?
is your heater fitted with a pressure switch? when on FL locate pressure switch wheel and turn all the way anti clockwise until it stops then slowly wind back until you hear a click reset in control box - you have reset pressure switch.
If you have done this and still show FL or heater is not fitted with pressure switch then your LOW speed on pump maybe faulty (new pump) or heater maybe scaled up with lime scale and reducing water flow through heater - remove scale from heater, flush through and increase ANTI-SCALE
