What’s included: Heater element w/ power cord.
This 1500 watt heater element is the replacement for all 1980-1994 Hot Spring spa models that operated on 115volts. This heater element, located inside of a stainless steel cylinder style housing, is an immersion type heater. If your spa is older than 1989, you will need the cord adapter (30070). A single 1.5 kW heater element is used in 115-volt spas. The same end of the heater element where the power cord is located also has a place (dry well) where to insert the copper probe from the heater hi-limit (heater reset).
Note: This square flanged heater element is secured into the heater body using four nuts and bolts. The o-ring and gasket (included) are used to prevent water from leaking between the heater and heater body. The included gasket is slightly thinner than the OEM gasket 70108. The OEM gasket is approx 3.1mm thick and the included gasket is 2.6mm thick. Repair Tip: To widen the screw holes in the gasket, use a 3/16″ bit or screwdriver. Be very careful not to overdo it and rip it into the gasket.
Note#2: There is a thin copper wire that disappears into the end of your existing heater element. DON’T CUT THAT WIRE. It is part of the heater hi-limit (heater reset) probe and it can not be reattached.
