The HydroQuip 27-V310-7T-K vertical low-flow heater assembly is a 5.5KW universal heater that can be utilized to replace heaters in Leisure Bay Hot Tubs, Gatsby Spas, Dimension One Spas, Hurricane hot tubs and more.

The HydroQuip 27-V310-5T-K heater features a titanium element, a heater "ON" indicator light, a built-in manual reset (for Hi-Limit errors), 3 pressure switch taps (pressure switch not included), a reversible foot bracket, an adjustable sensor cover (sensor not included), two 1" barbed ports, one piece of 1" x 12" tubing, two 3/4" x 1" barbed adapters, one 3" x 1" 90 degree barbed tailpiece, installation Instructions and a 60" power cord with a 3-pin Amp plug (mates with connector on heater) and three terminals (for power connection to a circuit board or relays).

ATTENTION: Things to consider when using the HydroQuip 27-V310-5T-K heater to replace other heaters.
Tip: In the world of hot tub terminology, a "pressure switch" and a "flow switch" is the same part.

1. The original tubing may need to be exteded or replaced with longer tubing in order too reach the new heater.

2. If your system has a pressure switch, the wires on the pressure switch may need to be extend in order too reach the new heater and the tap location on the manifold.

3. Your current pressure switch can be re-applied (if still functioning properly), however, we recommend replacing it when replacing the heater.
If your current pressure switch mounts in a threaded tap on the heater manifold, we recommend replacing it with the Tecmark 3029 stainless steel pressure switch because the stainless steel lasts longer and with less frequent leaks than plastic pressure switches.
If your current pressure switch mounts in-line with 3/4" tubing then the HydroQuip 34-0221-K pressure switch can work (the connector may need to be cut and the old connector spliced in depending on your circuit board's connection).

4. The original low flow heater often attaches or mounts to the control box.
This replacement heater has a reversible boot with holes provided in the metal base for screws or bolts to secure it too a substrate.
Typically this replacement heater is mounted on a wood floor (substrate).
If there is no wood floor then (depending on enough available space) a square piece of plywood (pressure treated if possible) can be a mounting solution (if it can be made and fitted big enough to prevent the heater from tipping over).
Another mounting option would be to wire-tie strap the new heater to the control box (if applicable depending on hot tub model, control box style and available space under the hot tub).

Tip: Going from a 4.0KW heater to a 5.5KW heater may have a faster heat recovery time, may consume more electricity and may wear out relays faster because slightly more amperage will be applied, however, many customers have expressed they don't notice a difference.
