Hi Stephanie, I’m Cole. I see you’re asking about spas – I think I can help you, as I have over 10 years of experience in this area and glad to help.
Is the low flow message on currently?
Is the filter or filters currently in the spa? How old are they?
have you taken the filters out and reset the power (off at least 30 seconds or more) if so how long will the pump run before it kicks back into low flow?
Sounds like your on the right track :) lets try and do this with a few more questions. Do you have access to a multi-meter? Are you comfortable with small electrical work.
Does the pump move water when this code is coming up?
That is OK we will try first without one. Is this one pump or two? If two is the circulation pump smaller than the other pump? Is the heating element and pressure switch located in a long cylindrical tube?
Thanks. So use extreme caution around electricity. The next thing i would do (with power off) is jump the wires together from the pressure switch there usually is only two so easy to just wire nut them together or a little electrical tape (only with two wire to pressure switch). then turn the power back on to see if this error goes away. And while were talking about this pressure switch does it have a dial for adjusting usually between 1-5 psi? if you don't know check it while your jumping the switch. Its important to keep an eye on the tub make sure your pump is moving water through the heater line, any shut off valves in line are on all the way open. This device your going to bypass is there to protect the tub from dry firing or and damaging the tub so we don't want leave it this way and want to make sure you have water in the heater tube and circulating before you do this.
