Davey Spaquip Spa Power 1200 SP1200 heater element / tube assembly were originally available in following kilowatt ratings - 2.0kw, 3.5kw, 4.5kw, 6kw. They are now available as 2.0kw, 3.0kw, 4.5kw, 6kw
This assembly comes with new high-temperature sensors and water sensor. Standalone elements are not available. Does not suit other Spa Power Controllers. May require re-wiring by a qualified person.
Some new style heaters have Titanium elements and a slightly different body. The old ones have been superseded by this new Retrofit. Note that the less-common 4-6kW heaters are still the older style.
Older style heaters are more susceptible to poor water chemistry due to their Teflon coating. Bromine and other Sanitizers that induce low pH are the cause of this. Obvious signs of damage due to water chemistry is not covered by warranty. See example of non-warranty damage.
Important Installation Info:
- Must be fitted by a qualified person such as a licensed electrician.
- When replacing an older twin-element heater with a single-element heater, one of the two heater wires (red or white) will need to be changed to go directly from the Heater Relay on the PCB to the POH spade terminal on the left side of the PCB. This "spare" wire should ideally be replaced, as it will have an exposed 240V spade terminal floating inside the box.
