Incomparable System Reliability

The  BP Series is the 1st in a newly designed and improved platform that focuses on reliability.  The BP501 uses the same Zircaloy or Titanium heater elements as used in the VL and EL series spa pack.  The new BP501 utilizes a more advance carbon based casing that is highly flame retardant and impact resistant.  New Features such as quick disconnect heater elements, Wi-Fi Ready, and Press and Hold topside navigation buttons. 

M7 Technology

The BP Series uses M7 Technology which is simply the best spa pack technology on the market. Completely digital circuitry means less failure, more accurate heating range (+/- 1 degree F).  The BP Series now includes both a high range (80-104F) and a low range (50-99 F) operation. The Patented M7 Technology removes the need for pressure sensors and remote heat sensors common on other older spa packs. This unique technology allows the spa pack to be positioned in any location or direction (before or after the pump or before or after the filter).

This spa pack can work at 120 VAC in which case it will produce 1.4 Kw of heat.  It is however primarily expected that it will be used at 230 VAC (requiring 30-50 AMP service) and will produce 5.5 kW of heat. One or more auxiliary heater, each producing 4.0 kW or 5.5kW can be slaved to the unit if more power is required.  It's standard spa pack union tail pieces fit 2" piping or with reducers can be easily adapted to 1.5".

Built in programmable features such a 12 or 24 hour filter cycle programming by duration or time of day, various power saving modes including standard, economy, and standard in economy mode, ozone suppression, clean up cycle, freeze protection, panel lock, temperature lock, standby mode for filter changes and sophisticated diagnosis and reminder measures are just some of the features. It also has the ability to select how much current will be drawn allowing a breaker as low as 30 Amp, yet still deliver the full 5.5 kW of electric heat. It has receptacles for the following:











• 10.56” High x 17” Long x 4.8” Deep
•  UL/CSA certification
• Requires Balboa TP series panels and has connectors for 1 main panel and 1 auxiliary panel
• Optional Wi-Fi Module for use with iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Android device
• 120 or 230 VAC ozone support (ozone must have same voltage as heater pump)
• 240VAC @ 60 Hz or 50 Hz, 30-60 Amp 3 wire (needs neutral wire)
• High or Low current mode
• Max Load ratings: Pump 1= 16 amp; Pump 2/Blower = 12 amp;  Ozonator = 1 amp; A/V = 5 amp; Light = 12 v  @ 1 amp
• The flow through heater tube must be a minimum of 20 USGPM if the heater is 5.5kW. This flow rate should be checked if your spa uses a small circulation pump such a Laing E10 or others made by  Grundfos or Waterway. These small pumps when used with 1” piping typically cannot produce this flow. A 3kW heater element is available which reduces flow requirement to 13 USGPM, call us!

• Warranty – 2 years for system including Heater and Serial top-side Panel
