Swim Spa Frost Thermostat

This control has two temperature sensors, one to monitor the air and an optional second one to monitor the water temperature.  The filter pump can be set for continuously on during a frost situation.  The heater can be set to come on at a lower temperature if the site requires. When the air teperature rises, it will switch off both water and air heating.  Other pumps and blowers are sequenced switched on for three minutes and off for 30 minutes to conserve energy. The filter pump, providing there is no heating, can also be sequenced switched.  These times can be adjusted at the time of manufacture to your requirements   The set temperature and the now temperature are displayed on the screen and the set points are adjustable.
