Gas/Electric Power Pak Details
Our Power Pak™ systems are created for us by HydroQuip, a leading manufacturer of spa and hot tub equipment. We believe they are the finest available on the market. They incorporate Balboa electronics and controls and Waterway pumps to our specifications. Power Pak™ systems are designed for user convenience and the rugged conditions that our Snorkel Hot Tubs encounter outdoors. Our Power Pak™ systems may cost a little more than most standard hot tub equipment packages, but the quality of the components in the Power Pak™ is the reason why. Every Power Pak™ is:
- Completely weather proof and does not require any kind of housing to protect it. Many other hot tub equipment packages that appear to be outdoor rated, are not. If it isn't clearly presented as weather proof, it probably isn't.
- Pre-assembled, plumbed, wire and mounted on a skid. Some hot tub equipment packages are just a collection of components that need to be integrated, mounted on a skid, plumbed, and wired together.
- UL listed as a system. That is, the entire assembled skid is UL listed as a system. No other equipment packages that we are aware of are UL listed as a system. This is important, not just for safety, but because many localities now require that pool and hot tub equipment skids be UL listed as a complete system before they will issue a permit.
- Designed to be as far as 20' away from the tub and still provide the proper flow rate to the 4 hydrotherapy jets. More powerful pump upgrades are available as options if longer distances or more jets are desired.
- Full Spectrum Ionizer - The ionizer creates copper, zinc and silver ions for sanitation, greatly reducing the need for chlorine. Many systems use copper (only) ionizers. Copper ionizers do have a biocidal effect, but silver is both more effective and broader spectrum. Copper and silver ions together have a synergistic effect that make them more effective than just the sum of their individual biocidal capabilities.
- WiFi Ready. All that is needed to be able to control your Power Pak™ from anywhere is to purchase the optional WiFi receiver (see Optional Upgrade section below) and to download the Balboa WiFi app on to your smartphone and you can control your system from anywhere.
