Default Help with obsolete Spa heater element

Hopefully someone will know about spas on THT. I have a bad heater element. It's a E2400-0127ET. I tried to order the only one I found in stock, but of course I got an refund, because they don't actually have one. Does anyone know if I can modify an new style heater element to work in the spa. Its a Vita-Spa. Attached is the unit i need to replace.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago. My hot tub repair guy was able to adapt a new element into the old tube. Sorry I don't know the specifics. Mine's been working fine ever since.

I would pull the elements out and see if you can find a replacement for them instead of the whole heater unit

cromalox or something like that makes all kinds of elements

This site says alternate available. Might be worth a call. Perhaps part number is superseded with another?

If it's made from unobtaineum, find a similar size replacement. Same input/output pipe size, wattage, voltage, etc.
