Meaning of HotSpring Green and Blue Lights

  1. What do the green and blue lights on the logo mean?

They are indicator lights.

A GREEN light stands for filtration in the salt system. As long as it’s glowing solid, the filtration is running.

The BLUE light is for the heater. As long as it’s solid the water is staying heated.

  1. What does the shape of the lights represent?

hotspring blue and green light

The HotSpring logo on the front of your hot tub with the blue and green lights are your indicator lights. Think of it as your hot tubs way of communicating with you and indicating what is going on.

The top light is GREEN, which indicates when the hot tub is ready temperature wise and within 2 degrees of the set temperature. When the temperature of your hot tub changes outside of your range, the light will turn off. When the green light is flashing, this may indicate there is a problem within the temperature sensor.

If you have an ACE salt water system hot tub your top green light will also indicate filtration within your salt system and your salt levels. When the light is blinking, it could mean a few different things relating to your salt system. The blinking green light could mean low salt, meaning you need to add more salt or the complete opposite, you have added too much salt. Another reason your green light could be blinking is because your salt cell is not receiving enough flow or is having a hard time functioning to its full potential. Should your green light be blinking, disconnect power for at least 30 seconds and then reconnect power. If the light is still blinking call for service.

The bottom BLUE light is an indicator for the power to the hot tub. If your blue light is on, this means your hot tub is properly supplied with power. This blue light also provides an indicator for your heater. If your heater high limit has tripped, this could mean the water in the hot tub is hotter than the acceptable temperature range or low flow and circulation, meaning your filters are clogged. Should your blue light be blinking, it typically means your high-heater thermostat tripped. In this case, we suggest disconnecting power for at least 30 seconds to reset a higher heat limit. Should this not work, checked for clogged filters. If the problem continues call for service. When your blue light is off, this could mean there is a problem with the hot tub control box or the power that is being supplied to the hot tub.

    1. Now that spring is finally here you may start to see a slight variance in your tubs water temperature of around 2 degrees. The green light is off because the tub is not currently heating the water. When the sun goes down and it starts to cool off again the heater should kick in again.
      It is great that you are so observant of your hot tub. If you ever have any questions please feel free to reach out to our service department: service@fargohotspring.com, or 844-200-7727(press 2, press 1).

  1. My indicator lights are not on at all. My hot tub is heating and working fine but there is no blue or green light at all.

    1. Hi Paula,
      This could be caused by one of two things. The plug for the indicator light came loose or was unplugged from the control panel. Or, the light has burnt out. Please feel free to call our service department with any questions on your tub. Knowing more information, ie. make and model, will help them provide you with a clearer picture of what is happening.

  2. Blue light is flashing, turned off the tub and turned back on. Still flashing. Can’t get to the tub right now(under 2 feet of snow). Should I turn it off at breaker, will it burn out the heater, or should I be more concerned with freezing. Not sure the dealer will be open tomorrow due to major snowstorm.

    1. If the blue light is still blinking after you have disconnected power for at least 30 secs you should check for clogged filters. If your tub is under two feet of snow, and you do not want to clear it off give our service department a call 844-200-7727.

  3. Green light on, blue light flashing. Removed filters and reset breaker. Blue light still flashing. Not sure what to do next. Please advise. Thanks

    1. Hi Brian,
      If the blue light is still blinking after you have disconnected power for at least 30 secs you should check for clogged filters. if cleaning your filters doesn’t help give our service department a call 844-200-7727.

    1. Hi Meg,
      First thing is to check your filters asap. If both lights are flashing you are not getting good flow through your filtration system. Call our service department right away they will get more information about your tub (make/model) and will be able to help you further. 844-200-7727

  4. How do you turn the green/blue lights off – or adjust the light levels right down? They shine right into the bedroom all night – I have checked the manual, and put some tape over them to dim them down.

    1. Hi Lanie,
      Thanks for the comment. It’s a great question so we’ve updated the article to include this issue. So, thank you! For convenience I’ve copied the new text here: “Should your blue light be blinking, it typically means your high-heater thermostat tripped. In this case, we suggest disconnecting power for at least 30 seconds to reset a higher heat limit. Should this not work, checked for clogged filters. If the problem continues call for service.”
