DIY: Replacement Electronic Control System for Soft Heat Saunas Now Available
Today we renovated a Soft Heat Sauna. Original problem was that the unit just would not heat up. After testing the system I determined that the Electronic Control box had failed. After some research, I found out that Soft Heat the sauna manufacturer had gone out of business and no parts were available. I then contacted several manufactures and found one that one built a system that would directly replace the Soft Heat Electronic Control Box and Digital Display Panel, while reusing the original power supply cord, limit switch and lamps.
This System saved the customer a lot of money since they did not have to pay for new lamps and labor to retrofit the existing ones. All the lamps plug in exactly the same way to the Control Box and the smaller Digital Display Panel comes with a 5" wide by 7" tall Adapter Plate to fit the existing Control Panel hole. Mount the new Temperature Probe, plug the cord into the power supply and it was back to enjoying the sauna.

1971 Jacuzzi Hot Tub with Suzanne Somers Advertisement Suzanne Somers (Standing), a little known actress at that time, was a Jacuzzi spokeswoman in 1971.
History: In 1968, Candido Jacuzzi brought to market the first self-contained, fully integrated whirlpool bath by incorporating jets into the sides of the tub. Dubbed the "Roman Bathtub", the jets used a 50-50 air/water ratio to improve the experience. The Jacuzzi became a symbol of a luxurious lifestyle. Hundreds of thousands of Jacuzzi portables were installed, both indoors and outdoors, at recreation centers and private homes. In the early 1970s, the company produced larger units with built-in heating and filtration systems. This was the beginning of the spa industry as we know it today, and it firmly associated the Jacuzzi name with the tubs. Suzanne Somers, then a model, was used in some of the first Jacuzzi print advertisements. The integrated design allowed for easy installation and portability, and thousands of homeowners installed the units. As the industry matured, the company's product line expanded with models that worked in multi-use configurations as hot tubs, whirlpool baths, or both. These models could be installed indoors or outdoors. Happy Hot Tubbin! Jeff at www.spatecservice.com
