Can you tell me what brand of spa it is and attach a pic of the equipment area, then I can direct you a little easier. Thanks, Jeff
Yeah, hopefully just the flow switch, could you get me one with the cover removed from the control box and another from farther away so I can see all the equipment. Also do you happen to have a meter to do some testing with?
OK, good, your pressure switch is down in the right hand bottom side of the control box. Little round grey thing with two tiny wires connected to it. Is your pump still operating on both low and high speeds, and do you have a meter to test with?
Ok, well, if you can tell me, is it running just on low speed on the pump , or only on high speed? The heating system normally just runs the low speed pump to heat and filter. so if we're not getting low speed, then that's the first problem we need to start testing for.
Your pump wiring is coming in to the left hand side of the control box. The chord will have green, white, red and black wires. If you set your meter on AC voltage, we need to locate on the board where the white and black wires connect and touch your two test leads to those two terminals and see if you have voltage coming off the board to the pump. Then hit the jet button and do the same test on the same wires. Next, do the same test with the white and red wires, with the jet button on and with it off and let me know what the readings are. Be careful to only touch the wire terminals we're testing and no other terminals with the test leads. thanks, jeff
