Do you need a Pack or a Control?
A spa control is the box of electronics that functions as the brains of your spa telling all the other spa components (like your pumps) what to do. If you are married, think of how your spouse operates most of the time and you'll have a good idea of what a spa control does. Also like a spouse, some controls come with heaters and some don't.
A spa pack is a complete system including a control, an additional pump or two and perhaps a blower [insert hot air joke here].
Simply put, you need a Pack if:
- Your spa gets a ton of use or it is more than 7 years old and you have to replace a major part (like a control or a pump). In this case, you can assume that other parts will be substantially worn and you might want to replace the whole deal while you're at it (your spa's shell and cabinet will last indefinitely so it's not unusual to replace the pack once or twice during a spa's life).
- Your spa has an old fashioned air (pneumatic) system with air button controls and you want to upgrade to a digital topside control. While we offer air-switched controls and equipment packs, they are offered only as a convenience to those who wish to keep their existing air button topside panel. The choice we recommend is a new electronic control pack because you gain the advantage of temperature display right where you can see it as well as many nice features that aren't available using air-switched controls
- You have called the spa tech to come fix your spa for the umpteenth time and you are sick and tired of being nickel and dimed to death.
