I'm trying to learn about a spa that exists at a house I recently bought and I'm trying to understand when one would use the Sleep Mode.
It's a Balboa topside control panel and I read that it will heat to 20 degrees F of the set temperature during filter cycles. So I generally keep it at 104 degrees F, so if I put it in sleep, it would heat to a maximum of 84 degrees? What would be the practical use of this? For when I go on vacation? Why not just set the spa to the desired lower temperature when I go on vacation? Also, I would think that if one used the sleep mode somewhat often, they would use more energy heating the spa back to the set temperature by 20 degrees, rather than maintaining the set temperature. Am I missing something? Any real point to using this mode?
