6 Flo-Thru Element Standard

6 Flo-Thru Element Standard




Product Description

Repalcement heater element for most of the older Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath tubs built prior to 2002.

Fits in all Balboa built heater manifolds, regardless of spa model.

6-Flo is 11" long and will operate at 5.5KW 240 Volt or can be used as a 1.5KW 115 Volt.

How to Test the Heater Element for Continuity:

  1. You must dis-connect the element from the system to get an accurate reading.
  2. Use a 1/4" wrench to hold the bottom stationary nut, and a 3/8" wrench to remove the top nut.
  3. Set your meter to test ohms and touch a lead to each heater terminal.
  4. If your meter shows OL or the needle doesn't move, the element is open and must be replaced. If you get a reading between 9-12 with your meter set on 200 ohm or it's lowest setting,  the element is able to perform work and the resistance reading is within acceptable ranges. 

NOTE: GFCI trips are another matter. Dis-connect the heater element wires or copper straps and point them in a safe place. if your GFCI holds and the rest of the system operates normally, replace the heater element.
