Balboa Control Modes and Why Water Only Luke Warm


Standard Mode (st) = maintains set temperature

Economy Mode (ec) = only heats during filtration cycle

Sleep Mode (sl) = heats to within 10 degrees (less) than preset temperature and only during the filtration cycle.

Filtration Cycles


Filtration Cycles run from F1 to F8 (F1 = 1 hour every 12 hours / F8 = 8 hours every 12 hours). Preset cycle set from factory is F1, so if in ec or sl mode your water will not reach desired temperature.

The sl and ec modes are great energy saving options if for example, you are not using the Spa all week or going away on holiday.  The only issue with these modes is that you can accidently switch to these modes or you need to remember to switch them back to st mode if you want a HOT HOT TUB.
