Description

The Apollo 11 Spa Controller is an economical, easy to install, and complete control system that can be used to upgrade or replace the original control system for most hot tubs and spas. This replacement control system includes a heater, top-side control, and sensors. It is a direct replacement for many OEM systems and if your spa currently uses a 15′ heater and the equipment plugs are Amp style this system should be a direct replacement. If not some re-plumbing may be necessary, and the pump cords may require an adapter, or to be changed.

  • Works with either 120V or 240V spas.
  • Three heat modes Standard/ Economy and Weekend to save on operating cost by allowing you to choose whether you want the water hot all the time only on weekends or economy  heating.
  • Preset filtering for 2 hours twice a day maintains water clarity. Filter time can be set or use the default time.
  • The system can be plumbed to either the intake or the discharge side of the pump.
  • System is designed to be installed by qualified spa technician.
  • Electrical connections to be made in accordance with state and local codes and in accordance with national Electric Code.
  • Spa must be connected to a GFIC.

    Outstanding Product & Customer Service!
    The new top side controller is much nicer looking than the one we replaced. The system was well labelled. We had some problems with some of the connections, and probably spent about an hour on the phone with Henri. He was incredibly patient, and our hot tub is running once again. I would definitely buy a product from them in the future.

    Great product and concept at a fantastic value. Instructions were very detailed and user friendly. Any do it yourselfer would have no problems as long as you read all the enclosed documentation carefully. If you need something clarified you can always get a tech on the phone who was very knowledgeable and helpful and that would be” Henri”. He was extremely patient friendly and always helpful. The controller was shipped promptly, packaged carefully and included great laminated instruction cards for set and for daily use. None of that came from the original manufacturer. It is very obvious that a great deal of planning and effort was put into the production, sale and future use of this spa controller system. I am extremely satisfied with their product and glad to have the use of my spa again. Thank you all at Trinity labs.

    This is a great product. installation was very easy. excellent customer service. service tech was very helpful and knowledgeable. this is a mint replacement solution. my hot tub is over 20 years old. I have replaced the main control board 3 times over the years, this unit is all inclusive and a fraction of the price of the original replacement board. I was going to scrap the whole tub until I found this site. now for $299 I have my hot tub back and my wife and I are loving it again. this is a great product supported by a great customer service force. I would highly recommend this to anyone. you will not regret it! 🙂

    This is a really great product with excellent customer support. The Apollo 11 is exactly as described on the site. Easy to install, operate and the menus provide ample options to modify. I was replacing a 20+ year-old unit and this new unit was perfectly designed to replace all original options and functions. Bravo! Great design, great product! Would highly recommend to others. Thanks especially Honre’ who was exceptionally knwledgeable and helpful on the phone for simple follow-up questions.

    I ordered the Apollo 11 V Spa pack and received it in 6 days. I installed it on my 17 year old Coleman model 455 hot tub with no problem. it was a very easy installation. The original Coleman replacement parts would have cost over $1,200 so I saved big bucks on the repair. Only had one minor problem after installation with the gfci tripping when ever I switched the breaker on. Called the number listed and immediately was connected with Henri who asked me a bunch of questions and then suggested switching the transformer switch from 120 v to 240 v. Thanks Henri, everything is operational now and my bride is very happy because she is now able to go out and cook her old bones at 104°F again.

    Installed this one month ago. I like that it is made in america!! So far seems like a well made unit although the connections for incoming power are very small and not sturdy. But overall a great replacement for my 20yr old baja spa. Its outside right now humming along in 11 degree weather! Thank you trinity

    We ordered the VC pack and 48 hours after receiving we are using the spa! The Cost for a complete Trinity system was less then a board replacement for our older Leisure Bay tub – so glad we went this route. The power hookups are a little small for the unit and the instructions a little scattered but After studying the pics and wiring diagram things ironed out quickly. Thanks for a great product and service! God Bless.

    I could NOT be happier with the Apollo pump and The service from Trinity! Took a 30-year-old, analog hut tub that wouldn’t work and within about 2 hours it was good as new. As far as 18 months later I had issues with other components in the tub (pumps, etc) and the technical guidance I received was outstanding! I Have been using the tub airy every day for the past 2 Years since we installed the Apollo.

    I had to replace the touch pad. At first, it would say pump failure. I knew nothing wrong with pumps because I checked them first. So, the next day I turn it on says the same thing. So, I wait for another day when the temperature is warmer and it fires up. I contributed this to some ice in the pump as it wouldn’t let it start. It’s running fine now, and I programmed it to heat up on weekends. I’m really happy with it. The technical support was great.

    I had to install either a new spa pack or control board. Price was about the same. As long as all other items (blower, circ. pump, water pumps, ozonator…) are working, installation was pretty easy. Took about 2 hours to completely install. Have had the pack for almost a year and am very pleased with it. I replaced a hot springs vanguard control board. Help is just a call away and it doesn’t come from India.

    Lots of changes since my last spa pack (from spa guts). This new one has 3 options for heating: economy, weekend or normal. The temperature sensor is located in the stainless heat tube (not in the tub!) so you may notice a cooler temperature than indicated by the LCD display. Easy to install, although I ordered 220 heat and it came prewired for 110 volts. Easy change/fix. My tub is outside, so I cut an ice chest to cover it.

    The unit was almost a perfect fit under my tub. A little fettling to change wiring output side, mounts and it’s in! Controls could be a lot easier to program, I’m afraid. My wife took some time to figure out how to set the programs and time. I still haven’t figured it 18 months later. The time clock loses 30 minutes a month so she has to reset it EVERY now and again. The price, ease of fitting- this is the way to go. The company being easy to deal with is a bonus.

    The product was exactly as advertised. Installation was straight FORWARD and worked the first time. It doesn’t WORK the color filter wheel on my light but that’s not a big deal to me. One small PROBLEM with temperature calibration was SOLVED immediately over the phone. The Tech knew the product. The only IMPROVEMENT would be a backlight of THE CONTROL, PANEL.

    What a wonderful product! When I purchased my home, which needed to be restored, the old jacuzzi conveyed. It looked really hopeless but I saw that the tub itself was intact. When I finally went to work on it, I found that the motor worked but was seized. After freeing the motor, it became obvious that the control box was ruined. The new Apollo 11 was a snap to configure and install, and the new digital control panel is precise. I am so proud that this American made product was available to me at a fair price. Best regards.

    Being an engineer myself I am very happy with this product. All of the documentation makes perfect sense. I called the support line with one question and talked to someone who knew the product and immediately answered my question. I like the way the control panel shows self-diagnostics on startup and tells you exactly what it is doing so you have confidence that the overall system is installed correctly and functioning as it should.

    The Apollo spa replacement was a perfect fit for my hot tub. The alternative was to purchase the original unit, which was outdated and would have cost me over $500. Instead, this product is designed to fit right into where your existing unit used to go, saving you time and money. It’s also insanely simple to install and operate (just make sure you turn off the power!)

    I agree with all of the positive comments listed above. I always do research THOROUGHLY before I purchase a product. I purchased my Apollo 11 spa pack in December 2016. I have a Morgan Spa built in 2002. The product arrived very quickly and I was very impressed with all the very simple “dummy proof” laminated step by step instructions, they made it so easy to replace my old spa pack. Some minor issues that OCCURRED were quickly addressed by Mr. Darby. Just some minor tweaks, he patiently walked me through my issue and resolved it. What was most impressive was a call to the office on Friday before Christmas expecting to leave a message and Mr. Darby was there and took the time to fix my problem. He even called me back after office hours to ensure everything was ok. What can you say about customer service like this? It was very refreshing to work with this company. No one product is perfect but when a company stands behind it strongly and works for you, that is what makes it perfect. I highly recommend this product and this company.

    I was going to pay to have a service tech come in and service my original Coleman spa pack. For the price I paid for the complete spa pack, I would have paid that for just the service call and repair. With the Apollo 11, I get a whole complete spa pack. It was an easy installation, and no modifications needed. I did have a few questions and called the number on the paperwork and I was up and running in no time. I am glad I picked the Apollo brand

    The unit was very easy to install however, all I get getting was error messages and a different one each time. I finally got the same error message three times in a row, I decided to install a new circulation pump. After that, I was still getting an error but no message. I called tech support and the technician had me try several things and determined that the relay on the board that controls the circulation pump was stuck. Since he was able to figure that out fairly easy, I believe that this must be a known issue with the board. The technician was great and was able to give me a workaround to reroute the wiring for the circulation pump and also pump 1. After that, the unit started to work and has been working fine. The only other thing about the unit was that it is set up for 12-volt lights and does not provide the wiring parts to use the 120v lighting that is allowed on the circuit board. I will say again that the technician was great and certainly knows his stuff.

    Ordered my part online after talking to a tech who was very helpful with my purchase. It came earlier then I thought it would. After it arrived, it fit right into place and no need to retrofit anything. I had a little trouble with the WIRING and called the tech. He was busy but called me back after hours which was awesome that he went to that level to help me. He walked me through and waited on the phone until startup was done. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to replace or upgrade.

    After the repairman declared my 1984 Sundance Spa needed a new control pack, and that if he could find a used one it would cost around $1,000. He couldn’t promise that it would work for very long, so I pronounced My spa “dead.” When I found the Apollo controller with the heater for significantly less, I ordered it right away. The most difficult part of the installation was a minor plumbing retrofit and the addition of a couple of adaptors. Henri was very helpful when it came time to get the spa up and running. I feel now like I could go into business rebuilding “over-the-Hill” spas using Apollo/Trinity Labs products.

    I have mixed reviews. When it is working, it is fine, the issues have been consistency and quality. I have had to replace the main board two different times under warranty, and I had to pay for the shipping back and forth. That seems unfair to me. I have had a continuing issue with the ozonator power since switching to a 240V pump. The ozonator power stays on all the time, burning out the ozonator in a few months. I have attempted to get this issue resolved, but have not gotten a call back from support.

    The Apollo 11 was easy to install and works great. The only issue i have Is the control of the reset temperature. When there is a power outage the Temperature resets to 80F. I don’t know anyone that keeps a hot tub at 80F. Where i live power outages and “bumps” are common. I find i am checking the temperature often.

    The programMable controls are A nice feature.

    I bought the Apollo 11 spa pack June of 2017. installation was a breeze however my spa sits in the hot south Florida sun. I had to order a new top side controller because the sun damaged the LCD and can no longer see the settings. also we get alot of power surges and the controllers default settings are 85 degrees. it would be perfect If a battery backup to the top side controller were added so you don’t lose your settings. nothing worse than getting into an ice cold spa.

    The product is well constructed. Needed to replace a Vita spa selectron 200 pack and did not know if was the topside or main circuit board. this unit cost less than replacement of the older components an I also got a new equipment with a new heater element. had to modify existing hot tub plumbing as the new heater unit was shorter that original. adaptor plate for topside not available however, since old one was larger and plastic was able remove guts and cut hole in old topside and use as adaptor. unit operates all equipment exactly as original unit did. the filter mode is not programable as original was however 4hr/day is plenty of filter time for any spa. wish unit allowed for hook-up of external temp. sensor to better regulate the water temp as the temp sensor is integral to the heater tube. the tub is connected to 240v and would not heat more the 100F however indicated that tub was at 104f. Tech had me move amp select jumper and unit now heats and indicates actual temp however, high speed pump will not run at same time heating. upon power loss unit loses set temp and goes to default temp. love the laminated operation/installation sheets. unit installed just over a month now and all working well. every one i’ve communicated with at company has been very professional and knowledgeable.

    Have an old (2004) Oregon hot springs 110volt Sumatra with bad controller pad from tiger hot springs (they no longer provide replacement parts). I got quotes from several other companies that were much higher than the Apollo, plus trinity electronic lab had a technician I spoke with to confirm fit. the Apollo fit comfortably in the small open space. the instructions were very clear and accessory kits for wiring a must. Once installed the controller took charge testing all components. All I had to do was adjust the temperature. It is heating and I cannot wait to jump in! I seldom write reviews unless well deserved, plus I have a technical background so this is saying a lot.

    I gave it 4 stars, because of lacking a couple simple programming functions, however if your like me, and have an 18-year-old redwood hot tub, Caldera, in great shape, in which I just got through refinishing, as well as preparing for the new Apollo 11 spa pack and 2 brand new pumps and motors, with a rubber matted bottom underneath all the components in the pump house area of the hot tub. New cords, and no room for fault! Henri was great, and a very nice guy, if you take your time and install new components to work with your Apollo 11 you will have great success.

    Only 1 issue, the jumper that you remove to make it 110, if you’re having a low heat issue, move it directly to the left on the 2 pins to the left that are vacant. This will change the heating area per say, directed more toward the top side of the tub! And if you’re running a 220v feed to your system, I highly recommend going all the way 220 for your main spa pump, go 2 speed! And a 220 v circulation pump (be sure and switch the inside white wire-line to the available slot connection to change (circulation pump port) to 220 volts inside the pack. Also make sure you have a good earth ground to pack strip on the outside of spa pack; (top left corner), use solid copper, and join your earth grounds in unison on your spa box ground strip-very important! Safety first!

    In response to a couple people having other components fail aside your Apollo 11, replace all main components of your spa, pumps, motors, and spa pack, in addition to ozone generator; they only last for 3-5 years, in which I do plan to purchase one. I believe with a natur2 mineral stick, ozone gen, and installed properly, taking your time to do everything like it says, in addition to getting the proper electrical cords compatible for 1 speed-(circ pump, -220v Recommended) and main spa 2 speed pump (220v 2 speed cord****make sure the red and white wire matches spa pack port 1 configuration to plug inside spa pack***) when I bought them online they sent the wrong one, be careful to get an exact match for your spa pack and connect it exactly as described in the instructions.

    Heating: if you have issues with heating call Henri, and he will walk you through how to switch the jumper if you didn’t get what I was talking about. As soon as I switched it and let the tub sit overnight and work all the air out of the system, it’s working like a champ! If there are any components to fail, I do hope Henri will be willing to make good with any failure, but all good and like new again! Amazing, and as read by others I saved about 1100.00 in spa installation fees from spa service personnel!!!

    If you have accessories use your noggin! use the extra ports on the board, or even use the pump 2 port to turn a set of lights on for your hot tub area, in the spa pack there is an extra terminal for lighting as well that can run cool lights and another terminal in which can be configured with the proper connections a blue tooth device for an outdoor sound system. I do wish it had a dongle for the rs232 topside control port, to convert it to a wireless transmitter (several online) that could be included with the package, and a downloadable app like that other company that sells spa packs that starts with gec…well you get it! And then you could control the functions of the spa by your phone via a downloadable application, through your wireless network, and keep track of your spa’s progress as well as being energy conscious of your homes spa! Do some research Henri, you could put this together for about another 40.00 and be well under that other company’s spa packs retail market.

    I have a very old coleman 250 spa. When a very close lightning strike destroyed to original cocntroller in June of 2015 I went shopping for a replacement controller pack. I happened upon the Apollo 11 (great name – and mission BTW) i was astounded by thhe low price and standard features! I bought it, installed it easily started it up and it tripped the GFCI (ugh!). Quick call to Henri had me looking for some water inside the controller box. Indeed there was a drop of water between a hot wire into the heater and the metal case (ground current correctly triggered the GFCI. Henri had seen this before I’m sure! After that, off and running without issue for these last 3 years. Thank you for producing a great product!
