SpaGuts brand Spa Controller VS501Z Kit, is powered by Balboa Water Group, but offers an upgraded 2 year warranty instead of the standard 1 year warranty provided on Balboa labeled components. It also includes a larger, more reliable and easier to read topside instead of the standard entry level topside. The Spa Guts branded products offer a better value and a longer warranty than all competing brands.
An option only available from SpaGuts, the VS501Z is available factory configured to your exact specifications or as a retrofit kit that is easily field configured at the time of installation. Competitors only offer controllers as a retrofit "do it yourself kits" without the time saving factory configuration optionally available by SpaGuts. Factory Configuration includes set-up and bench testing of Internal component circuits to work with your existing pump, blower (or pump 2) and ozone, so you don't have to do any internal wiring, making your controller plug and play right out of the box. Best value for most installers; saves time and prevents costly installation errors.
This controller operates on 110/220V 60Hz (220V requires 4-wire service). The SpaGuts brand VS501Z controller is equipped with Balboa Water Group's patented M7 technology which allows the heater to be mounted either on the suction or discharge side of the pump for simplified installation. M7 Technology also completely eliminates the pressure switch which otherwise requires occasional manual adjustment making the SpaGuts VS501Z an ideal choice if a pressure switch is not necessary on your spa configuration.
