My name is Garry. I'll be glad to help with your spa.

The dashes you see on the display indicates an error code called "Watch Dog". This means there is a possible sensor, transformer, Top Side control, or Circuit Board failure.

Do you have a multi-meter so we can try troubleshooting the spa? Please let me know and we can continue from there. Thank you
