5.5 Kw Balboa VS501Z -Spa Pack PN 54356-03Balboa VS501Z Digital Spa Controller (spa pack) for tubs with one or more pumps – one-2-speed pumps, but it additionally also supports a 2nd 1-speed pump or blower (not both) and a circulation pump. The Patented M7 Technology requires no pressure sensor or remote temperature sensor and allows the spa pack to be positioned any direction. Water temperature is maintained to /- 1 degree F. This spa pack is most often used with a 240 volt service in which case the heater element (Incoloy 800) will produce 5.5 kW. It can also use a 120 volt service if all load devices are 120 volt. The heater element will then produce 1.4 kW. Used with standard 2 piping or 1-1/2 piping if adapters are installed. The spa pack is expected to be bought as a direct replacement. It can replace other spa packs such as ones supplied by Gecko, Hot Springs, Len Gordon, Hydro Quip, etc., but only if bought as part of a retrofit kit (which this is not).
Standard features include:
- filter cycle programming
- freeze protection, standard, economy and sleep heating modes
