This 2014 No-Fault PDR Titanium Heater is the newest factory upgrade replacement heater from the makers of Hot Springs spas. Its double-pass sleek design replaces all previously discontinued heater styles. The double-pass feature efficiently heats the water in two stages and oh what a perfect job it does! Now factory approved and warrantied for all 115 volt 1.5kW and 230 volt - 6kW installations for all 1995-now Hot Springs and Tiger River spa models. For 4kW, 230 volt applications see the 73791 PDR. Your existing 3/4" vinyl tubing will attach to this heater with no worries. The thermistors have different thread sizes to insure they can't accidentally be reversed when re-installing them into this new PDR heater. The also have different tips on the ends of the wire to insure they can't accidentally be plugged into the wrong port on the IQ Control Box.
This replacement heater doesn't have a plug on the end of the power cord like on the 1995-1996 spas. In most applications, the heater is connected directly inside the spas control box. If your existing heater plugs in to the bottom of your control box, you may need the appropriate adapter. Adapters are listed next to your spa model on the chart below.
Note: The 73791 can be used as an alternative to this heater in a spa that's wired 230 volts. Some service techs prefer the 4kW PDR to this 6 kW siting that it puts less strain on old/weakening 30 amp GFCI breakers.
73790 draws 25 amps (wired 230 volts)
73791 draws 16 amps (wired 230 volts)
Tip: You can also utilize the cord end (plug) from your old No Fault heater and splice it onto a PDR if needed.

Note#1: This PDR (power-down-reset) heater eliminates the manual reset button, which means that you never need to remove the equipment door to reset the heater. Simply power down the spa for 30 seconds by either tripping off the GFCI breakers in the sub panel (on 230volt models) or unplugging the spa (115volt models). Yay for this massive improvement! There is something about the manual reset circuitry on heaters that causes them to expire prematurely. This heater replaces all heaters in all 1995-now Hot Spring, Tiger River and Limelight hot tubs which includes the No Fault 6000 heaters, Watkins No Fault 5500 and the No-Fault 1500 cartridge style heater.
Note#2: The inlet thermistor port on these style heaters require a wrench to thread in the thermistor.
Replacement Hint: It's easier to replace a heater if the spa is drained. However, some folks leave the water in the spa, disconnect the vinyl tubing from their old heater and insert wine corks into the ends of the vinyl tubing. This insures a minimal amount of water loss during the change out. Clever repair techs use radiator hose pinch off pliers to clamp off the tubing.

I would highly recommend anyone to purchase from you folks. The prices were good and the packing and delivery was very quick. I also saw some how to videos on you tube that were put on by you folks which is great. I will definitely purchase from you again. Thank you, Jon
Everything arrived quickly and in one piece. Because of the timely shipping we were able to repair the Spa before the weekend. Thanks for the great service!
Great web site! Easy to use and fast delivery.
Tech support was very helpful. Parts were received quickly and corrected the problem with my Hot Springs Spa.
I live in Virginia and have been buy from Backyard Plus for more than 10 years. I always get whatever I need and support to do the work myself. What more do you want!
I found all the parts I was looking for and received them all before the estimated delivery date.The PARTS FINDER link is VERY helpful and very easy to use. I have always had good experiences with this website and have never received the wrong parts. Just one note. The website said that the filter housing #33103 that I ordered did not include the lid so I ordered a lid, an O ring and a lock ring separately. The filter housing arrived complete with a lid, O ring and a lock ring. You may want to update that.
Timely response to questions. Part shipped free and on time. Very happy all around thank you.
M. H. ,
I have purchased items from your company many time for my aging spa and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly my orders are processed and delivered to my home.
