Equipment


Many spa manufacturers have digital equipment; however, not all digital equipment is the same. To save on cost many equipment manufacturers will use cheaper internal parts which may have a short life span.

Our electronic spa controls are built with the benefit of 20 years of experience. These controls have a lot of smarts built in, are far more reliable, and above all they are extremely friendly to use.

The LifeForce 1500 series can control a 2 speed primary pump, a single speed air blower or a single speed secondary pump, a 12 volt spa light, an auxiliary light or accessory and an ozonator or other sanitizing system. The system comes with a calibrated pressure switch, a heavy duty 2 pole contactor to control the 5.5 KW attached heating element. This system is convertible and may be wired 220/110 volts depending on pump size.

The LifeForce 2500 series includes everything the 1500 series has plus a GFCI and a Titanium heating element. The 2500 series may also be expanded to run 3 pumps and additional options. Many spa manufacturers do not offer GFCIs built into their equipment, leaving the customer to pay an electrician hundreds of dollars more to have one installed. For a relatively inexpensive part on your spa equipment many spa manufacturers would rather save the small amount of wholesale cost forcing their customers to incur a large retail expense on the install of the spa. Our Titanium heater offers you chemical resistance by using one of the world's strongest metals. Our Titanium heater will put your mind at ease with its 5 year corrosion free warranty.

The LifeForce equipment packs have been designed with the user, the spa manufacturer as well as the serviceman in mind. Our equipment is designed to work for years rather than creating customer tears.

When the heating circuit fails most boards need to be replaced or they will catch fire and burn down your spa. Our pack as a 40 amp contactor (the distribution electrical terminal block) so the heating circuit is separate from the board, so the board is protected and doesn't need to be replaced when the heating circuit fails.
