The jets on my spa pool seem to running forever, the control

Customer Question

the jets on my spa pool seem to running forever, the control panel is a balboa 300-f. I have tried pressing the jets button but all it does is carry on 'jetting.

It sounds like you may have the spa in Filter continuously mode. This happens quite a bit. If you have the owners manual, look up filter settings and set it to F2 or F4 this will tell the spa to run 2 filter cycles with a duration or two or four hours. In some manufacturers they use a code of FC for continuous mode, others use a F6 or F8 mode. Main thing is to check and reset to a lower filter setting. We will take it from there once you confirm the setting.
