Customer Question

I would like to replace my electric hot tub heater with a Jandy propane heater. I understand believe I would repipe the existing piping to bypass the electric heater. I would like to use the existing pump in the spa to circulate the water. How does the unit sense the water temp in the spa and turn on the pump?
JA: Who manufactured the spa?
Customer: pinnical
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I can. I will have the propane setup by a professional
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No the key that I see is how does the temp in the spa get monitored by the heater and turn on the pump

Its more than 10 mins and you have already taken my money. It seems all that is happened is a major run around.

In most instances the thermostat is integral to the heater and that triggers the pump, my suggestion would be to simply disconnect the element wiring in the electric heater and leave it in place.
