|20130068631||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SANITIZING WATER IN A BATHING UNIT AND CONTROL INTERFACE FOR USE IN CONNECTION WITH SAME - A sanitizing system is provided for use in a bathing unit system including a receptacle for holding water in which a halide salt has been dissolved and a circulating system for removing and returning water from and to the receptacle. The sanitizing system includes a sanitizing device having a housing configured to be positioned in fluid communication with the circulation system and an electrolytic cell positioned within the housing so that when power is applied to the electrolytic cell, the halide salt dissolved in water flowing through the housing is converted to an amount of free halogen. A controller controls an amount of power supplied to the electrolytic cell so as to control the amount of free halogen being generated. The amount of power supplied may be adjusted, for example, based on an amount of usage of the bathing unit system, a usage of a circulation pump and/or based on a water temperature. A user control interface for the sanitizing device is also provided.||03-21-2013|
|20120117724||SPA SYSTEM WITH FLOW CONTROL FEATURE - A spa system comprising a tub, a circulation system and a controller is provided. The tub holds water and has an outlet port and an inlet port. The circulation system has a pump assembly, including a motor driving a pump, to circulate water from the outlet port to the inlet port. The speed of the motor can be set at different speeds by the controller in response to user inputs to adjust the flow rate of the water discharged into the tub through the inlet port. Alternatively, or in addition, the speed of the motor can be set at different speeds by the controller depending one whether a water heater positioned in fluid communication with the pump assembly is in a heating mode or in a non-heating mode. In some implementations, the motor used to drive the pump is a BLDC motor.||05-17-2012|
