new pool owner. I noticed that when I turn on the spa, to spa only mode, that heat pump heater will automatically turn on.. if I have heat setting set where the water needs warmed. (without actually hitting button for heater).
so if I wanted to turn just the spa function on without heater being run, the only thing I can do so the heater don't kick on, is to change heat setting to a lower degree so it doesn't kick on.
is this right? or should I be able to run the spa and turn on heater when I want it to heat, not automatically?
(we have pentair heat pump and pentair equipment )

Do you have Screenlogic II?

What device do you use to control your spa?

Set your Heat Menu option to "Off"...

That will set up the system so that you have to manually turn the heat on..

Thanks,

I do that on my phone and It literally turns itself back on. I watched it after I turned off (by hitting the off button?) turn itself back on. the only way to keep it off when in spa mode is to make temp off pool water low so heater won't come on.

On the main panel itself, go into the Settings Menu and find Manual Heat.. Set it to off and see what happens.

Thanks,

Jim R.

You have to scroll way down..

Thanks,

On my EasyTouch when I go to "Settings" and scroll down, I come to Heat pump, but if I keep scrolling down, through all the remote panels, way down near the bottom of the list is "Manual Heat on/off"

I have no idea why you would not see the same thing. :scratch:
