We've purchased a home that happened to have a non-operational hot tub. Last Fall I cleaned it out, filled it up, turned it on and it ran for 10-20 seconds then shutoff. The control panel screen flashes 000 when this happens. Then I have to flip the breaker Off/On to be able to start the tub again. Anyway, that's when I also noticed it's leaking so I put that project on the backburner until this year.
So it's Fall again and I just ordered Margil's Fix A Leak and it will be here by Friday. So I have two questions:
1. Does anyone know what the 000 error means and/or how to fix it?
2. Is there a way to bypass the 'brain' on the spa so I can keep the pump running longer than 10 seconds?
The equipment and hottub are in really really good condition. I think the previous owners only had it a couple of years before throwing in the towel when it sprung a leak (also: it was installed in concrete slab by genius's who apparently didn't think they'd ever need to access the underside of the shell ever).
Thanks for reading - I'm hoping I can save the tub otherwise the alternative is to tear it out piece by piece and fill the whole with concrete.
