    Spa not heating properly
    I have been having an issue with my spa not heating up properly. It only gets to
    Mid to high eighties. The dealer suggested I change the filter. Then they
    Suggested I change the temp sensors. Then change the heater. None of these
    Suggestions worked. Now they are suggesting I change the whole circuit board.
    Are there not any tests they can run to try and find the problem or is this the
    Usual case to do trial and error.
    My spa is only 3 yrs and 4 months old. I bought it from sparkling pools and spas
    In Dartmouth Nova Scotia. It is an 8 ft model with two pumps and a bromine
    Generator. The only other issue I had earlier this year was a leak when one of
    The jet pumps was on. It was causing the breaker switch to trip. The dealer
    Fixed this, but could water damage to the circuit board explain the problem I am
    Having now? Any advice would be helpful

    It might be helpful to know what you actually have. Brand? Model?

    I have a cal spa escape seriesModel#: L-S11-ES864B-XS Serial#: 11S-003806
    My spa is not heating properly. It only gets up to the mid 80 degree level. I have switched out the temp sensors and the heater. The dealer says the next step is switching out the circuit board. Is there anything else I should try first? I notice there are a couple of fuses on the circuit board. What would these be for and could one of them be blown?
