Important Safety Instructions
When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions
should be followed, including the following:
1) READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2) WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury, do not permit children to use this
product unless they are closely supervised at all times. Keep spa cover locked
when not in use.
3) A wire connector is provided on 220 V units to connect a minimum No. 8 AWG
(8.4 mm2) solid copper conductor between this unit and any metal equipment,
metal water pipe, or conduit within 5ft. (1.5 m) of the unit.
4) DANGER Risk of injury. The suction fittings in this spa are sized to match the
specific water flow created by the pump, be sure that the flow rates are
compatible. Never operate the spa if the suction fittings are broken or missing.
Never replace a suction fitting with one rated less that the flow rate marked on
the original suction fitting.
5) DANGER Risk of electrical shock. Install at least 5 feet (1.5m) from all metal
surfaces unless each metal surface is permanently connected by a minimum No. 8 AWG
(8.4mm2) solid copper conductor to the wire connector on the terminal box that
is provided for this purpose.
6) DANGER Risk of electrical shock. Do not permit any electrical appliance, such
as light, telephone, radio or television within 5ft. (1.5m) of spa (except for factory
installed stereo system).
7) WARNING To reduce the risk of injury:
The water temperature in a spa should never exceed 104ºF.
A water temperature of 104ºF is considered safe for a healthy adult.
Lower water temperatures are recommended for young children and
when spa use exceeds 10 minutes.
Since excessive water temperatures have a high potential for causing
fetal injury during the early months of pregnancy, pregnant or possibly
pregnant women should limit spa water temperature to 100ºF.
Before entering a spa, the user should measure the water temperature
with an accurate thermometer since the tolerance of water temperature
regulating devices varies.
The use of alcohol, drugs, or medications before or during spa use may
lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
5
Important Safety Instructions (cont.)
Persons suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart
disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system problems,
or diabetes should consult a physician before using a spa.
Persons using medication should consult a physician before using
a spa since some medication may affect heart rate, blood pressure,
and circulation.
8) The causes, symptoms and affects of hyperthermia may be described as
follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches
a level several degrees above the normal temperature of 98.6ºF.
The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in the internal
temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness and fainting.
The effects of hyperthermia include:
Failure to feel heat
Failure to recognize the need to exit the spa
Unawareness of impending hazards
Fetal injury in pregnant women
Physical inability to exit the spa
Unconsciousness resulting in the potential of drowning.
9) Never touch or come in contact with any electrical accessory when in your spa
or when your body is wet.
10) Prior to performing any service to the Spa Pack, turn off ALL power to the
system at the main power source breaker.
11) Never turn equipment pack on unless spa is filled with water 2" above the
skimmer.
CAUTION: Every person's body and circulatory system has different tolerances
and responds differently to warm-hot water immersion. Most people in good health
find a water temperature of about 102ºF to be satisfying and limit time in water
at this temperature to 20-30 minutes. Use of alcoholic beverages and certain
medications may affect the way your body's system reacts to warm-hot water
immersion. CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN FOR RECOMMENDATIONS.

Basic Introductory Information
Congratulations on the purchase of your new spa. Our purpose is to provide you with a
warm and relaxing spa which incorporates a soothing water massage. In order to
maximize the pleasure of your spa, you will need to understand how it works.
The following operating and maintenance instructions are very important and must
be followed carefully. With proper care and maintenance your spa will provide you with
years of satisfaction with minimum effort.
The pump and heater should be operated a minimum of four hours per day for
cleaning and heating.
The length of time required to heat your spa to the desired water temperature
will vary, depending on the air temperature, season, and wind velocity. Therefore,
this is something each owner must adjust to their liking. We highly recommend
using a vinyl hard cover to minimize heat loss and to protect your spa when not
in use. Covers are available from your local Dynasty Spa dealer.
The replaceable filter cartridge is trouble free and easy to clean. A routine cleaning
is the best practice. Make sure the pump is off, then remove the cartridge. Wash it
off using a water hose with a pressure nozzle and then reassemble. This should be
done on a monthly basis.
Keep the spa water level 2" above the skimmer. Never allow the water level to drop
below the bottom of the skimmer opening. If the water level is too low, the skimmer
will allow air into the water lines of the pump, causing it to lose its prime (water flow). Running the pump without water flow will damage the pump seal assembly
and could possibly result in further equipment damage.
If your spa has a redwood or mahogany skirt or if you purchased a wood
gazebo, we recommend applying a wood sealer of your choice (always follow
application instructions) to protect the finish. Repeat as directions suggest.
You should clean your spa at least every 3-4 months. Drain the spa water and
use a liquid cleanser such as 409 or Fantastic to clean your spa. DO NOT use
hard brushes or abrasive cleaners. Fill with regular tap water and chemically
treat the water for a clean and healthy spa.
CAUTION: Cover must be kept on spa at all times when spa is drained or
winterized. Direct exposure to sunlight can damage plastic parts and interior
surface, jets, or any interior components. Damage caused by sunlight exposure
is not covered under warranty.
WARNING: Do not use soft water. It may harm your acrylic.

Air Controls & Diverter Valve Controls
Diverter Valves
This valve controls the output of the pumps to either side of the spa and
neck jets, a simple turn of the pointer toward the seat(s) will increase the
output allowed. Another turn of the pointer away from the seat(s) will
decrease the flow of the jets, or it may operate all the jets if left in the middle
position. The purpose of these valves is to increase or decrease the output
of one side or another for maximum or minimum water flow in case of one or
multiple person usage. This valve is also used to turn the master massage
jet on and off.
Air Controls
Each spa is equipped with either 2, 4 or 5 air controls (venturies), depending
on your model. The purpose of these controls is to regulate the mixture of air
and water to flow throughout the jets.
Waterfall Diverter
This diverter works much like the standard diverter valves, however it has
another purpose. It directly controls the Waterfall(s) that comes standard on
your spa. Simply turn the pointer in one direction or another for the desired
water flow.

Filter Maintenance
Filtration starts as soon as flow is steady through the filter. The filter
cartridge removes the dirt from the spa water, the accumulated dirt
causes flow resistance. A dirty cartridge will decrease flow and may
cause spa not to heat properly. Therefore, regular filter cleaning is
important.
Cleaning and Replacing Filter Cartridge (100 sqft.)
Your Dynasty Spa filter has been designed for quick and easy maintenance.
Turn off power at the breaker.
Open filter door and expose filter cartridges by pulling door toward center
of spa until door opens all of the way out.
Unscrew filter cartridges and remove.
Clean with a garden hose equipped with a high pressure nozzle,
or soak in filter cartridge cleaner if necessary or at every other
regularly scheduled cleaning. Rinse filter thoroughly before installing.
Screw clean cartridge back into filter enclosure and return filter door to
original position
For Baron 3000 owners (50 sqft.)
Turn off power at the breaker.
Remove basket from filter canister, remove filter cartridge and clean
with a garden hose equipped with a high pressure nozzle, or soak in
filter cartridge cleaner if necessary or at every other regularly scheduled
cleaning. Rinse filter thoroughly before installing.
Place clean cartridge in filter canister
Replace basket weir in filter canister
Note: The filter should be inspected
and cleaned on a monthly basis.

Keeping Your Spa Water Clean & Fresh
Cleaning Your Spa Water
You need to keep you spa clean and ready to use. When you enter your spa,
you bring in as much contaminant as 50 people would in a normal size
swimming pool! Because your spa is such a small, enclosed environment, it
needs to be a sanitary place. We accomplish this with a simple three step
process:
1) Balance
2) Filtration
3) Sanitation
The water that comes from your tap at home is fine for showers or bathing,
because it is drained immediately after use. In a spa, your water is used for
up to three months. Hot water is a breeding ground for bacteria, so sanitizing
becomes necessary, as well as maintaining a specific mineral balance. Having
that mineral balance in place ensures that the water, which is naturally corrosive
to metal, will not cause damage to the spa equipment. We recommend monthly
water testing.
WARNING: Maintain water chemistry in accordance with
manufacturer's instructions.
WARNING: Please be careful with chemicals - damage to the
surface of the spa can occur due to the improper use of chemicals
such as trichlor or chlorine, chemical tablets, acids or spa cleaners.
Do not let undissolved chemicals lie on the surface of the spa.
This could invalidate your warranty. Improper water chemistry
balance can damage the spa and invalidate your warranty.
Filling Spa With Water
When filling the spa, use 2 ounces of SODIUM BROMIDE to create a bromide
reserve. When using BROMINATING TABLETS, 2 ounces will treat up to 500
gallons of water. For chlorine system, use CHLORINATING GRANULES
(1/2 oz. per 500 gallons).
Once the spa has been filled to the correct level and pumps are primed and
running add:
1) STAIN & SCALE REMOVER- This prevents staining, rust and corrosion,
caused by metals in the source water. One bottle will treat up to 500
gallons for up to 3 months.
2) PROTECT PLUS - This prevents a calcium build up. Use 2 oz. on a weekly
basis.
3) CALCIUM BOOSTER (If Needed) - Calcium booster treats the water if low
calcium hardness is a problem in your area. It will help prevent
equipment corrosion and foaming by raising the spa's water hardness
level to an acceptable range of 120 ppm.

4) pH STABILIZER - It will properly adjust and hold the pH for up to
3 months
Water Testing
Your Dynasty dealer is equipped to perform a thorough analysis of your spa
water. Take a one liter sample to the store and they will advise you on the
products necessary to properly balance and care for your spa. Unbalanced
spa water can quickly damage your equipment. Your Dynasty dealer will
advise you on how to protect your investment.
Balance
Spa water must have the correct chemical balance. Unbalanced water can
irritate eyes, corrode the equipment, leave mineral deposits, and decrease
the effectiveness of the sanitizer.
Balanced water means establishing proper balance among Total Alkalinity,
pH, Calcium Hardness and Total dissolved solids.
23
Keeping Your Spa Water Clean & Fresh
An Overview
Monthly - For Equipment Protection
CALCIUM BOOSTER (If Needed) - Calcium booster treats the water if
low calcium hardness is a problem in your area. It will help prevent
equipment corrosion and foaming by raising the spa's water hardness
level to an acceptable range of 120 ppm.
Filter Cleaning
To keep your filter free of grease, grime, and oil. Clean the filter with
SPA CARTRIDGE FILTER CLEAN. One 16 oz. bottle treats a 55 square foot
filter. See Filter Maintenance section for location and diagram.
As Needed
Surface Cleaning
Between refills and as needed, clean the surface using SPA MULTIPURPOSE CLEANER. For tough scale & stains, use STAIN & SCALE REMOVER.
Surface Protection
To protect and seal the spa surface, use SPA FAST GLOSS every time you
drain and clean the spa.
Water Balance
Adjust the pH quickly and easily with pH STABILIZER.
It will properly adjust and hold the pH for up to 3 months.
Note: Not recommended for calcium hardness levels above 200 ppm.
Use SPA UP to raise pH and SPA DOWN to lower pH.
Sanitizing
Use 2 ounces of SODIUM BROMIDE to create a bromide reserve. When
using BROMINATING TABLETS, 2 ounces will treat up to 500 gallons
of water. For chlorine system, use CHLORINATING GRANULES
(1/2 oz. per 500 gallons).
Mineral Protection
STAIN & SCALE REMOVER - This prevents staining, rust and corrosion,
caused by metals in the source water. One bottle will treat up to 500
gallons for up to 3 months.
Foam Control
To control foaming, use SPA FOAM DOWN. For added convenience, use
just 3 drops of SPA FOAM DOWN CONCENTRATE.
Aromatic Control
To make your spa even more relaxing and enjoyable, add ESSCENTS
fragrance to it as often as you desire. With 8 exotic scents to choose from,
you'll be sure to discover one that sets the perfect mood for you.
24
Keeping Your Spa Water Clean & Fresh
An Overview
As Needed (cont.)
Skin Conditioning
To prevent dry skin, pour SKIN SOFTNER directly into the spa. It
smoothes and moisturizes.
Algae Control
For spas with green or yellow algae, use SPA ALGAECIDE to kill and
prevent further algae growth.
Do not leave your water treatment products outside. If they are subject
to extreme heat or cold, their effectiveness can be impaired making
them unusable. Always keep these and other chemicals OUT OF
REACH OF CHILDREN.
25
Draining Your Spa
Because a spa holds a relative small amount of water, contaminants such as
body oil, perspiration, dirt, hair, etc., may become quite concentrated. For this
reason, the water should be drained and replaced every three months depending
on use.
Turn off power at the breaker.
Hook up a garden hose to the hose bib located on the exterior corner
When water begins to drain out of the hose, be sure to drain the water
to a convenient place.
After draining is completed, remove the garden hose from the hose bib & turn
valve off. Wipe down the inside of your spa making sure your surface is dry and
free from standing water. We recommend that after draining or cleaning your
spa that you put the cover back on. Avoid extended direct sunlight exposure
on the acrylic surface. Extended exposure can cause surface fading or cracking,
which could void your warranty.
Note: Be sure that hose is on a downward grade to properly
drain spa.
26
Winterizing Your Spa
In areas of the country where the temperatures drops below 32º F,
it is important to follow these directions
When winterizing the spa, we recommend putting RV Antifreeze in the spa
and running it before draining the spa.
1) If the spa is not going to be used, drain completely. Be sure all water is removed.
Break or loosen unions at each end of pump to ensure water from pump area is
removed.
2) Do not turn unit off with water in the spa. Frozen water may rupture plumbing,
and will not be covered under warranty.
3) Remove and clean filter cartridge. Store cartridge in a secure place to prevent
freezing.
If the spa is going to be used, maintain normal operating procedures and ensure
cover is installed when possible.
Freeze ups or damage caused by freezing are not covered under warranty
27
Maintaining Your Spa Cover
Proper Maintenance For Your Dynasty Spa Cover
1) Use a soft broom to remove accumulation after every snowfall or ice storm
2) Splash cool tap water on the hardware to free them if they become frozen
shut. WD-40™ will keep the lock free, but apply carefully because it can
damage the cabinet finish.
3) We recommend a good treatment with Vinyl Conditioner before your first
snow or ice. If possible, treat during the winter too.
4) Monitor your water chemistry. Even it the spa is not used regularly, improper
water chemistry can cause a mildew build-up on the cover. Clean water and PH
controlled water will prolong the life of the cover.
5) If mildew is found, remove foam cores from the vinyl encasement. Mix water,
a teaspoon of mild dish washing soap and a cup of bleach. With a soft bristle
brush, scrub the inside and outside of the vinyl encasement thoroughly. Then
take a washcloth and wipe down each foam core, rinse thoroughly. Place
the encasement in the sun and foam cores in the shade to dry. Once
everything is thoroughly dry, spray the cores and encasement with a
mildew inhibitor (like Pine Sol™). Allow to dry completely, then reassemble.
The key here of course is to maintain proper water chemistry to avoid mildew.
6) We suggest rotating the cover every six months to maintain even wear.
Unzip the cover, remove the foam cores, turn over and reassemble.
