For extreme “Hot” or “Cold” climates, the temperature and high-limit sensor must be located per the layout callouts above. The temperature sensor can be installed either below grade in the suction plumbing or in a sensing well installed within the spa. The high-limit sensor may remain in its factory-installed location for “Cold” climates (below 35°F) but must be installed below grade when the equipment will be subjected to high temperatures (above 95°F). http://www.MyPoolSpas.com 13 Wholesale Pool and Spa Parts 920-925-3094 2
