Replacement Heating Element

This is a genuine Balboa heating element for hot tub heaters and is designed to replace a standard 3 KW hot tub element in a Balboa titanium heater tube.

The part is easy to fit, due to the anti twist support bar that is fitted to the inside of the element.

Fitting a new element

You will need a 1" spanner, some long pliers and a 10mm spanner.

  • Double check the power is turned of to the hot tub.
  • Drain water down or close slice valves (gate valves)
  • loosen unions either side of heater (do not unscrew screws on heater unions unless you have a space issue)
  • Loosen connections to element with long nose pliers underneath and 10mm spanner on top
  • Disconnect sensors and anything else that is attached or holding in the heater tube. (note take a photo of where the sensors are connected)
  • Remove heater
  • Use 1" spanner to remove nuts holding heater in place
  • Remove element
  • Clean surfaces if required
  • Carefully push new element into tube (this can be tricky, but take your time and try not to bend anything)
  • Replace nuts. (when tightening the main 1" nuts try to keep the element in the center of the heater tube)
  • Replace heater and senors

To do this job professionally we recommend you to also replace the Balboa heater seals which go either end of the heater tube: Genuine Balboa Heater Tube Seals

Always put a little lube on seals where required.

I have never found any one as helpful as john and knows so much about the hot tubs. If you are having trouble with your tub look no further than hottubdiy john will explain in full detail what he thinks the problem is and even rings you as many times it takes you to sort out the problem saving you pounds on expensive call outs from other companies who sends people who have not got a clew and i am speaking from experience .I must say the spares and postal service is second to none,so i can say its hottubdiy for me every time many thanks john.
