Customer Question
I have a cal...

I have a cal spa in my new home in new York where the weather is below zero. I just bought this home so I know nothing about the unit. Just looked at it and the water is cold and the display showed EC56. Reset the breaker and now nothing works at all. Trying to decide if I should drain this thing or what. Temps tonight are going to be below zero.

Contractor's Assistant: Who manufactured the spa?

Cal Spa

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can

hello, it sounds like your spa is in sleep or primer mode, either is normal. The Primer mode is when it first starts, after you reset breaker. It has a automatic freeze mode that protects the components. More info on messages on display at http://www.calspas.com/message-troubleshooting.php Hope this answers your question.
