Heater Below Used On R574 and R576 Control Boxes

Comes As Pictured with Pressure Switch and OH Sensor

Same As
S943000; 2000-688

4.0kw; 15"

We recommend the 5.5kw directly below. The 4.0kw heaters are less available and therefore pricier. The 5.5kw will work fine in most applications.

Heater Used on Late Pinnacle, Triton, and Some Platinum Models
R743000; 6500-301
5.5kw Vertical Low Flow Heater
Jacuzzi replaced the style shown on right with the plastic unit shown on left.

6600-168a This Smart Heater has a slightly smaller dry well than previous generation. When installing these heaters into spas manufactured prior to April 2007, you can no longer use the original Hi-Limit Sensor since it is too large to fit into the new heater's sensor well. You will need to replace your sensor with THIS sensor. $29.01



Only Used on Early Pinnacle Model with Horizontal Heater

K464000; 2000-300

Heaters For the 2002+ "J Series" Spas

Heater Education

How They Work: Heaters basically resist current flow and doing so heat. Most common rating of heaters is 5.5k although some models have 4.0kw. A 5.5kw heater operating at 230vac you should see a 5-6 degree per hour water temperature increase. 

How do they Fail? The "official" statement from those who make heaters is that if it doesn't fail instantly, the only reason afterward is enduser water quality. We did service on one brand that only warrantee their heaters up to the first use. After that, nothing. Again, the belief is that enduser water quality or lack thereof causes heaters to fail. We no longer service those spas.

But in the field, its hard to determine. Yes, likely the most common reason the heater fails is water quality but there is only so much an enduser can do. Some ask why don't they make elements that last but my answer has always been the same; would you pay 3x what you pay now for a "better quality" heater? In reality, most of us would not. So we try to maintain heaters and see what happens. I have seen the same style heater last less than a year and more then 10. So maybe there is something to the industry's blame.

We now offer "treated" heater elements. They have a coating to extend their life.

In most cases, you can see corrosion on the element and that explains the failure. BUT.. elements can have pinholes and that pinhole will leak current and the gfci senses and POP. So I have seen heaters over the years that looked fine yet the element somewhere is shorting out and the GFCI pops. Solution is replacement.
