Why The Balboa Value Pack Retrofit Kit?
The Value Pack Retrofit kit is based on the Value Series (VS) family of hot tub controls which were designed using Balboa's patented M7 temperature and flow sensor technology. The VS systems have a plastic enclosure to eliminate corrosion and suppress water intrusion. Also, the connectors are built onto the circuit board to minimize wires and simplify service. The Value Pack is meant to be installed by a spa professional who can rest easy knowing he's working with a kit that is known for reliability, ease of installation and serviceability.

Thanks to a combination of Balboa engineering and patented M7 technology, we now offer the highest component reliability in the business with fewer returns and longer life expectancy than traditional non-M7 systems. At Balboa, innovative engineering and state-of-the-art manufacturing go hand in hand to deliver a quality, cost effective product that will provide years of reliable, headache-free service.

Patented M7 Technology Includes:

Smart Sensor Technology
  • Multiple High Limit Safety Systems
  • All Safety Functions always active
  • Both Sensors are Identical
  • Sensors monitor each other via software to regulate spa functions
  • Ensures a proper operating environment for heater element
  • No Sensor Installation in spa wall
  • No Pressure Switch problems

Heater Element and Tube
  • Incoloy and Titanium material options
  • Enlarged bend radius
  • No wire ties
  • Minimizes debris collection

Good price / Fast Ship

Thanks. Just what I needed in a quick time frame at an economical price. Others may appear cheaper but once you end up configuring competitors units it ends up being much more expensive

confused

yes I have received this item ,and have it installed but I can not get it to function properly for 220v system .its only sending 120v to a 220v motor I had first thought my motors were bad but that's not the case I took them to warwood armature and had them tested both were good .I've had a certified electrician check my incoming power all is good so it has to be something in the control box.... any suggestions on what the issue may be ?

Retro fit into an old hottub

I have a 20+ year old tub. I bought this to update the heater and controls. I previously bought a new pump. Aside from the plumbing, which was a pain in the butt (no fault of this controller), this is exactly what I wanted. It works terrific and easy to use. Maintains temp right where I tell it to. I'll definitely be shopping hottub warehouse / balboa more in the future!

Easy to install, comes with everything!

This was easy to install if you are replacing an older or non working model.
The couplers on either end of the heater element screw off easily and back on to the spa plumbing system. I was searching to replace a VS501Z 54379-03, but the manufacture recommended this part number as a better replacement because of the more powerful heater. Also be extra careful about the dip switch and jumper settings (white wires) , these need to be configured and may not work right out of the box . Overall I was very impressed and pleased with the whole package. They thought of everything!
