GFCI Trip Feature

The GFCI Trip feature is available on newer EL Systems.

The graphic below represents a removable label that is attached to the front of the system box and describes the GFCI Trip function and test procedure.


Text for the label is below:


The GFCI Trip Test must occur to allow proper spa function. Within 24 hours of startup, the spa will trip the GFCI to test it. Be sure to notify and train the customer to reset the GFCI once it has been tripped. After passing the GFCI Trip Test, subsequent GFCI trips will indicate a ground fault or other unsafe condition requiring the power to the spa to be shut off.

The installer can cause the GFCI Trip Test to occur sooner by initiating it with a button sequence. Note: The Temp button can be any button which controls the water temperature (Up, Down, Warm, Cool, Temp, Thermometer icon, etc).

Press “Temp”, then “Jets 1”, then “Light.” Press the “Temp” button repeatedly until gFC is displayed. Press “Jets 1” to select it. Press the “Temp” button until Gt.n is displayed. Press “Jets 1” to initiate the GFCI Trip Test. The GFCI should trip within several seconds and the spa should shut down. If it does not, shut down the power and manually verify that a GFCI breaker is installed and that the circuit and spa are wired correctly. Verify the function of the GFCI with its own test button. Restore power to the spa and repeat the GFCI Trip Test.

Once the GFCI is tripped by the test, reset the GFCI and the spa will operate normally from that point. You can verify a successful test by navigating to the gFC item as described above, pressing “Jets 1” and then pressing the “Temp” button until you see gS.P, a code that signifies GFCI Status - Passed.

The system and panel display will exit this menu in 30 seconds if no buttons are pressed.

Warning: The GFCI Trip Test does NOT take the place of training the customer to locate, test and reset the GFCI on a regular basis to verify its function.

This label may be removed after the GFCI Trip Test has been successfully completed.
