What to do before the Spa Man Comes:
Is there a code in the display on top of the spa?
What to look for:
Modern Spas will generate troubleshooting codes that tell the homeowner where the problem might be located. These codes vary widely from manufactor to manufactor and should be found in the owners manual of your spa. Service companies ,in some cases ,using these codes can help narrow down the defective part and even provide enough information to develop a repair quote over the phone.
As spas continue to improve the ambiguity of the trouble code is becoming less anfd the accuracy of the repairs is getting better. That is not to say that given a particular code that it is wise to run to the internet and order the replacement part. There are still many “false positives” associated with logic circuits where one problem can have several root causes A trained technician can save you money and aggravation with return policies if the part you ordered does not fix the problem.
