I probably forgot more about this model than the current Jacuzzi customer service droids can ever learn. I started doing JWB service work in 1984 and this is one of the models that I cut my teeth on. The original controller was manufactured by a company called Catalina Controls. They were bought up and the electronics continued to be manufactured under various names (Brett Aqualine, Len Gordon, Allied Innovations). This equipment was all based on the BL-40 controls, which have also been discontinued. However, the BL-50 topside and the replacement circuit board is still available from at least one wholesaler (Horizon). If your local pool/spa dealer has a Horizon account, he can order replacement electronics. The air controls are specific to JWB and no longer made. I think I have a couple left. I hoarded a bunch when they discontinued it. Jet, suction and skimmer parts are easy to obtain. The flow switch is no longer supported, but you can glue in a replacement with no problems. The motors are quite robust, but the wet ends (proprietary) are very expensive.
