A ground fault circuit interrupter, or GFCI, interrupts in the case of ANY fault to ground that might indicate an electrocution factor.
The GFCI should NEVER be bypassed. It is extremely important in any system because it shuts off the current if it gets too high.
Balboa’s deadfront GFCI has a rainproof enclosure and complies with NEC requirements.
If the GFCI shuts off and won’t reset, or shuts off again right away, there might be a faulty component.
Heaters are a common problem, try turning down the thermostat and then try again.
Blowers can sometimes be an issue as well. A leaking valve should cause it to trip immediately.
If it’s not either one, it could be the Ozone Generator. The problem could be a faulty check valve.
No matter the issue, a GFCI is an effective tool in keeping your spa safe. For more information on the Balboa 50A GFCI Load Center and it’s function, contact the pros at PoguePoolSpa.com.
