104 degrees is just not hot enough. Does anyone else agree? I have a
D-1 spa with a gecko control system and I want to get it higher than
104 degrees. I contacted both D-1 and Gecko but they (of course) were
no help. Any ideas?
There are laws which prevent legitimate spa dealers and repairmen to
override the 104 setting.
I usually keep ours around 100, and it's plenty hot enough for me.
You may be able to find someone who knows how to override the limiter, but
as other responders to this post have said, it may void your warranty, if
you still have one. Try posting your question to the bulletin board at
poolandspa.com. Some of the people who participate in that board are repaid
people who may help you.
I've been sensing some ridicule in some of these replies. I'm not
looking for 212 degrees, but 108 or 110 would be great. I have been a
regular hot spring bather at temperatures this high and my old Hot
Springs Classic tub hit 108 regurlarly. I'm not the type to sit in it
for long periods and stew my skin off either. I am quite aware of the
warranty issues and I was sure the factory wasn't going to help me but
I thought I'd try anyway to cover all the bases. I am not looking for
advice on why I shouldn't raise to temp., I'm looking for advice on
how to raise the temp.
I have a tub that used to have a Gecko control. It had an overide
where if you held the temp up button long enough (after you hit 104)
you could get the temp up to 107. Personally 105 is too hot for me -
I like it at 103 max.
I don't know if the newer Gecko Controls allow such an overide. We
got a new control (non-Gecko) because the old geckco control's sticker
over the buttons kept coming off. I know the newer Gecko's don't have
this sticker prob though.
Keep cool! ;-)
