Saratoga Spa Safety Instructions
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
AVOIDING THE RISK TO CHILDREN
Spa Safety reminders
DANGER:
Risk of Child Drowning
Extreme caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorized access by children.To avoid
accidents, ensure that children cannot use a spa unless they are supervised at all times.
WARNING:
• To reduce the risk of injury, do not permit children to use this spa unless they are closely
supervised at all times.
• To reduce the risk of injury, lower water temperatures are recommended for young children.
Children are especially sensitive to hot water.
DO:
• Make sure you always lock the child resistant spa cover locks after using the spa for your
children’s safety. Every Saratoga Spa is equipped with a locking cover that meets the
ASTM F1346-91 Standard for Safety Covers.
• Test the water temperature with your hand before allowing children to enter the spa to
be sure that it’s comfortable. Children are especially sensitive to hot water.
• Remind children that wet surfaces can be very slippery. Make sure that children are
careful when entering or exiting the spa.
DON’T:
• Allow children to climb onto the spa cover.
• Allow children to have unsupervised access to the spa.
DANGER:
Risk of Child Electrocution
• Connect only to a grounded source.
• Do not bury the power cord. A buried power cord may result in death, or serious
personal injury due to electrocution if direct burial-type cable is not used, or if improper
digging occurs.
• A ground terminal (pressure wire connector) is provided on the control box inside the
unit to permit connection of a minimum No. 8 AWG (8.4 mm) solid copper bonding
conductor between this point and any metal equipment, metal water pipe, metal enclosures
of electrical equipment, or conduit within five feet (1.5 m) of the unit as needed to
comply with local requirements.
• To reduce the risk of electrocution, replace all damaged cords immediately. Failure to do
so may result in death or serious personal injury due to electrocution.
DANGER:
Risk of Electric Shock
• Do not permit any electrical appliance, such as a light, telephone, radio or television within
5 feet (1.5m) of a spa.These units DO NOT have an internal ground fault circuit interrupter.
The installation of a ground fault circuit interrupter MUST be done by a qualified Electrician
and must meet all local and national codes. Failure to maintain a safe distance may result in
death, or serious personal injury due to electrocution, if the appliance should fall into the spa.
• Install at least 5 feet (1.5 m) from all metal surfaces. A spa may be installed within 5 feet of
a metal surface if each metal surface is permanently connected by a minimum No. 8 AWG
(8.4 mm) solid copper conductor attached to the wire ground connector on the terminal
box that is provided for this purpose if in accordance with National Electrical Code
ANSI/NMFPA70-1993.
• Install your spa in such a way that drainage is away from the electrical compartment and
from all electrical components.
DO:
• Do test the water temperature with your hand before entering the spa to be sure the
water temperature is comfortable.
• Do keep the spa cover locked when the spa is not in use.
• Do check the equipment compartment monthly for any signs of tampering to the
spa equipment.
• Do follow the maintenance instructions of the spa found in this owner’s manual.
• Be sure your spa is connected to the power supply correctly - use a licensed
electrical contractor.
• Test the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter(s) once a month.
DON’T:
• Use the spa with the equipment compartment door removed.
• Place electrical appliances within 5 feet (1.5m) of the spa.
• Don’t allow children to have unsupervised access to the spa.
• Don’t block the equipment compartment vents.This could cause damage to the spa
equipment and will void the warranty.
DANGER:
Risk of Personal Injury
• To reduce the risk of injury to persons, DO NOT remove suction fittings located at the
bottom footwells of the spa.
• The suction fittings in the spa are sized to match the specific water flow created by the
pump. Never replace a suction fitting with one rated less than the flow rate marked on
the original suction fitting. Never operate the spa if the suction fittings are broken or missing.
• There is a danger of slipping and falling. Remember that wet surfaces can be very slippery.
Take care when entering or exiting the spa.
• People with infectious diseases should not use the spa.
• Keep any loose articles of clothing or hanging jewelry away from rotating jets or other
moving components.
• The use of drugs, alcohol, or medication before or during spa use may lead to
unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
• Persons using medications should consult a physician before using a spa; some medication
may cause a user to become drowsy, while other medication may affect heart rate, blood
pressure, and circulation.
• Persons taking medications which induce drowsiness, such as tranquilizers, antihistamines
or anticoagulants should not use the spa.
• Water temperature in excess of 38ºC (100.4ºF) may be injurious to your health.
• Pregnant women should consult a physician before using spa.
• 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 spa.
Unclean water
• Keep the water clean and sanitized with correct chemical care.
• Maintain water chemistry in accordance with chemical manufacturer’s instructions.
Important:
• Turn on Jet Pump #1, on high speed, for a 15 minute cycle (or 20 minutes
for Polo
Adelphi, and Putnam) after adding ANY spa water
chemicals into the spa.
• Clean the filter cartridges monthly to remove debris and mineral buildup
which may
affect the performance of the jets, limit the flow, or trip the
high limit thermostat.
DANGER:
Risk of Hyperthermia
The causes, symptoms and effects of hyperthermia may be described as follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level several
degrees above the normal body 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:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Failure to perceive heat.
Failure to recognize the need to exit the spa or hot tub.
Unawareness of impending hazard.
Fetal damage in pregnant women.
Physical inability to exit the spa or hot tub.
Unconsciousness resulting in drowning.
WARNING:
The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication can greatly increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia in hot
tubs and spas.
To Reduce the Risk of Injury:
• The water in the spa should never exceed 104°F (40ºC).Water temperatures between
100°F (37.7ºC) and 104°F (40ºC) are considered safe for a healthy adult.
• Lower water temperatures are recommended for extended use (exceeding ten minutes)
and for young children. Extended use can cause hyperthermia.
• Pregnant or possibly pregnant women should limit spa water temperatures to 100°F.
Failure to do so may result in permanent injury to your baby.
• Do not use spa immediately following strenuous exercise.
DANGER:
Avoiding the Risk of Skin Burns
• To reduce the risk of injury, before entering a spa the user should measure the water
temperature with an accurate thermometer, since the tolerance of temperature-regulating
devices may vary by as much as ±5°F.
• Test the water with your hand before entering the spa to be sure it’s comfortable.
Important:
The following contains important spa information, and we strongly encourage
you to read and apply them.
DO:
• Use and lock the vinyl cover when the spa is not in use, whether it is empty or full.
• Follow the Spa Care and Maintenance recommendations stated in this manual.
• Use only approved accessories and recommended spa chemicals and cleaners.
DON’T:
• Leave the Saratoga spa exposed to the sun without water or the cover in place. Exposure
to direct sunlight can cause solar distress of the shell material.
• Lift or drag the vinyl cover by using the cover lock straps; always lift or carry the cover by
using the handles.
• Attempt to open the electrical control box.There are no user serviceable parts inside.
Opening of the control box by the spa owner will void the warranty. If you have an operational problem, carefully go through the steps outlined in the Troubleshooting section. If
you are not able to resolve the problem, contact your authorized Saratoga Spa dealer. Many
problems can easily be diagnosed over the telephone by an Authorized Service Technician.
• Block or sit on the filter compartment area.
• Allow excessive weight to be placed on the spa cover. Doing so could damage the spa
cover and void any warranty.

Installation Instructions
Location Pr eparation
Your Saratoga Spa is totally self-contained and portable.You can install the spa outside or
inside. Preferable places are on a patio, deck or indoors.The spa should always be placed on
a structurally strong, level surface. Other items you need to consider are the following:
• Verify that the location chosen can support the weight of the spa, the water of the spa and its occupants.
• Always check the surface of the site to see if it is level before filling the spa with water.
• Allow access to the equipment compartment for routine maintenance.
• When positioning the spa, be sure to allow for drainage away from the electrical compartment.
• Leave easy access to the GFCI breaker.
WARNING:
The Saratoga Spa is manufactured to be a portable unit. Any permanent installation of this product
is done at the risk of the owner. Permanent installation of this unit violates warranty coverage.
Outdo or Installation
Always keep in mind what type of climate you live in. In a climate with cold, snowy winters
you may want to consider locating the spa close to the house for easy access. In climates
where it is normally warm or hot year-round, it would be recommended to place the spa in
a shaded or cool area.With deck installations it is recommended that a qualified building
contractor or structural engineer review the weight the deck can support.The spa
specification sheet (on page 6) can assist you with the weights and dimensions of your spa.
Indo or Installation
Special requirements are needed for indoor installation. Spas normally produce moisture. A
ventilation system needs to be considered.Your spa area should contain moisture resistant
wall/floor coverings and building materials to avoid damage from moisture over time. Proper
drainage of the spas water also needs to be considered.
Important:
Your Saratoga Spa is equipped with air vents to allow for circulation of air
throughout the equipment compartment.These vents are found on the face of
the equipment compartment panel and under the corners of the spa at the
equipment compartment end. Do not allow vents to be blocked as to prevent
the circulation of air in the equipment compartment.
YOUR SARATOGA SPA DEALER CAN HELP YOU WITH INFORMATION SUCH AS
LOCAL ZONING REGULATIONS AND BUILDING CODES.

-Broadway
Saratoga Spas must be wired in accordance with all applicable local electrical codes.
All electrical work should be done by an experienced, licensed Electrician.We
recommend the use of appropriate electrical conduit, fittings and wire for all circuits.
220 Volt installations require a 60Hz, single phase, three-wire electrical service plus ground (Line
1, Line 2, Neutral and Ground) and must be connected using a minimum supply conductor
ampacity of 50 AMPs and a minimum circuit breaker size of 50 AMPs. Note: Use copper
wire only (3 wire with ground. 8 gauge under 50', 6 gauge over 50')
220 Volt model spas must be connected to a “dedicated” 220 volt 50 Amp grounded circuit.
The term “dedicated” means the electrical circuit is not being used for any other electrical
items (lights, appliances, etc.). If the spa is connected to a non-dedicated circuit, overloading will
occur and nuisance tripping of the GFCI breaker switch at the house breaker panel will occur.
A ground lug connector is provided on the exterior surface of the spa pack (operations
center) inside the equipment compartment.This is to permit the connection of a bonding
wire between this point and any metal equipment, enclosures, pipe or conduit within five
feet (1.5m) of the spa.This bonding wire must be at least 8AWG solid copper wire.
Important:
Use only approved pressure-type wire splicing lugs or connectors suitable for the
size and type of wiring used!
Electrical Installation Instructions for 220 Volt Models
1. To connect the electrical service, first remove the screws from the equipment
compartment door. Carefully remove the access panel.
2. Locate the blue “M-Class” spa control box. Loosen the screws on the front of the control
box. Remove the screws and the control box cover.
3. Input the electrical service from the GFCI breaker into the spa equipment compartment.
20
Note: The GFCI breaker must be placed in sight of the spa, at a minimum distance of five
feet (1.5m) away.
Note: As of January 1, 1996 the National Electric Code (NEC) requires GFCI (Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter) on all spa installations.

Initial Operating Instructions:
Start-Up and Refill Pr ocedur es
Your Saratoga Spa has been tested at the manufacturing plant to ensure that all the spas
functions operate. During the test procedure, a small amount of water may have remained in
the spas plumbing.Through the shipping process water may have spotted the spas shell.You
may need to wipe down the shell with a soft cloth. Please read and follow the start-up
instructions to ensure a successful start-up or refill.
Important:
• Inspect and clean spa shell of any debris
• Do not turn power on to spa unless filled with water to appropriate level (See Page 25).
The spa
pack must never be operated without water in the spa; serious
damage to the heater and/or
pump(s) may result.
• Do not fill spa with water before checking the items below (below items may
become loose
in transit):
A
A
a) Hand tighten unions at the pumps
b) Tighten drain valve
Note: Drain Valve is left open
for shipping - drain valve must
C
c) Tighten unions on heater

• Do not fill spa with hot water. This may cause a false error code to the high limit
sensor.
24
Start-up Pr ocedur es
1. For a successful start-up, fill the spa with water through the Whisper Clean® cartridge.The Whisper
Clean® cartridge is the cartridge with the coarse threaded yellow ACME style adapter.
a. Locate the filter compartment area.
Note: The Lincoln model uses three filters.
b. Pull up and remove filter cover.
c. Remove the filter cartridge and screen adapter by turning them counter clockwise.
d. After removing the filter cartridge and screen adapter, place a garden hose through
the filter opening.
e. At this point, open the air bleeder valve(s) in your filter compartment by turning
counter clockwise.
f.
Turn water on and run water until it reaches a minimum level of 2” above the top
of the filters.
Note: Besides filling the spa to 2” above the top of the filter, all models will need to be
filled to 2” above the highest jet(s) in the spa.This is the minimum level allowed to run the
Whisper Clean® circulation system.
Note: When using a mineral cartridge system, please refer to your dealer for specific
instructions on installation.
2. Check all plumbing (clamps, unions and drain valve) connections for leaks.
3. Re-install filter cartridges and screen adapters by turning them clockwise. Exit garden hose from
the spa.
25
4. At this point, turn power on to the spa control system by turning on the GFCI breaker.The MSPA
operations center will begin heating the spa to the factory set temperature of 95ºF (35ºC).
5. The next step is to check that the jet system(s) are operational. Press on the Jet(s) button to turn
on the pump(s). A strong force of water flowing through the jets indicates the pump(s) are primed.
Weak or surging jet(s) indicates the pump(s) still need to be primed (see Troubleshooting section).
6. Once pump(s) are primed, close the air bleeder valve(s) in the filter compartment.
Note: Water will be exiting from the air bleeder valves.
7. Re-install filter cover and allow spa to heat to desired set temperature; this normally takes 24
hours. 110 Volt models may take up to 48 hours to reach desired set temperature.
8. 24 hours after initial start-up the spa will go through its first power filtration cycle. Jets 2 (pump 2),
Jets 3 (pump 3) and optional Blower will run on high speed for one (1) minute.Then Jet 1 (pump 1)
will turn on and run on low speed for one (1) minute.This power filtration cycle is repeated every
24 hours at the exact time as initial power-up.
Note: If water bubbles are not coming out of the Whisper Clean® Jet/bottom drain, the
system is air locked. Refer to the Trouble Shooting Section on page 60 for further instructions.
Note: It is recommended to press and release the ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)
RESET button monthly to verify GFCI is working properly.
Note: If power is interrupted, and the conserve filtration cycle has been activated, it will be
reset to the continuous 24 hour cycle.
9. Water must be balanced and shocked upon start-up. See your
dealer or pages 57–59 of this manual for details.This procedure
must be repeated each time the spa is drained and refilled.
10. The Whisper Clean® Jet
The combination of the Whisper Clean® and Vortex Jet™ return
systems help the Whisper Clean® System circulate water from
the surface and bottom level of the spa.The Whisper Clean® Jet
also induces temperature controlled water and ozone into the
spas footwell area 24 hours a day.
Note: A slow or non-moving Whisper Clean® Jet may
indicate that the filter cartridge pores are obstructed with
dirt, body oils or calcification. Follow the filter cartridge
cleaning procedures in this manual (See page 53).

Spa Car e and Maintenance
General Information
Your Saratoga Spa is manufactured from the highest quality, most durable materials available
today.We recommend that a spa maintenance program be followed.The care you take will
ultimately determine how long your spa or its individual components will last.This section
will help you maintain your investment.
Proper spa maintenance (regular draining and replacing of spa water according to
these directions along with filter cleaning), proper spa water treatment (water
balance and maintaining correct sanitizer levels), and proper installation (adequate
ventilation) are the keys to ensuring sanitary, healthy spa water.
Replacing The Water
It is recommended that you completely drain your spa every 45 to 90 days. Normally, after a
period of time the water will become sudsy and harder to maintain and should be replaced.
The NSPI WRI,Water Replacement Interval Formula is as follows:
WRI = .33 X Spa Volume in US Gallons
Average Bathers per Day
Note: Heavy usage may require more frequent draining.
To Drain Your Spa:
1. Disconnect the spa from the power supply by tripping the GFCI breaker located in the house
breaker panel or at the GFCI disconnect breaker at the spa.
2. Take off the equipment access panel by first removing the screws and then pulling out the access
panel. Locate main drain valve and attach the inlet of a garden hose to the drain valve. Route
garden hose to an appropriate draining area away from the spa to avoid flooding of the
surroundings around the spa.
Note: Spa water with a high sanitizer level may harm plants and grass.
3. Open the drain valve by turning the knob.The spa will drain by gravitational flow.
4. Saratoga Spas will drain to the lower suction fittings in the footwell of the spa. It may be necessary
to vacuum or sponge up a small amount of the remaining water in the spa.
5. When empty inspect the spa shell and clean as required.
6. Close the drain valve and remove garden hose.
7. Replace or close the equipment access door and replace screws.
8. Refill the spa through the filter compartment BEFORE restoring power.
Important:
Always clean the filter cartridges each time the spa is drained for cleaning.
52
Filter System
Saratoga Spas are equipped with two standard filter cartridges, except on the Empire and
Broadway, which have two long filters and the Lincoln which has three standard filters. As
with any filtering system, the filter cartridges may become clogged with particles, body oils
or calcification resulting in poor water quality and reduced water flow. It is important to
maintain a clean, unobstructed filtering system. A reduced water flow may cause a false High
Limit reading or cause the circulation pump to burn out or turn off. If the circulation of
water stops during sub-freezing temperatures and goes unnoticed, the spa water may freeze,
which is not covered under manufacturers warranties.
WARNING:
The frequency and duration of use, and the number of occupants, all contribute to determining the
appropriate time between filter cleanings. More use means that more frequent filter cleanings are
required. Failure to maintain the cartridges in a clean, unobstructed manner will result in reduced
water flow. Any damage to the spa (due to freezing) caused as a result of poor maintenance will
not be covered by your spa warranty.
Filter Cartridge Removal and Cleaning
1. Disconnect the spa from the power supply by tripping the GFCI breaker at the spa.
2. Remove and carefully set aside the filter compartment cover.
3. Remove any floating items from within the filter compartment.
4. Grasp the handle of the filter cartridge and turn the cartridge clockwise until it is free
from the base retainer. Leave screen adapter in place.
5. Place the cartridge on a clean surface and spray with a garden hose. It will be necessary
to rotate the cartridge(s) to ensure all the filter pleats have been cleaned.
6. Continue cleaning by spraying down throughout the center of the cartridge (inside out).
7. For a complete and more thorough cleaning it is recommended to soak cartridges in a
filter cleaning solution. Follow directions on the filter cleaner label.
8. Before inserting cartridges, do a final inspection of the cartridges.
9.To reinstall the filter cartridges, reverse the order in which the cartridges were removed.
WARNING:
Do not turn power on or use the spa with the filter cartridges or screen adapters removed!
Note: Spa cartridges are a disposable item and should be replaced each year.
Car e of the Spa Pillows
The spa pillows used on Saratoga Spa models will provide years of comfort if treated with
care.To extend their life the spa pillows should be removed and cleaned.Wash with a mild
soap and water solution. ALWAYS rinse off the spa pillows thoroughly to remove any soap
residue. If the spa is not going to be used for a long period of time the spa pillows should
be removed until the next spa use.
To remove and replace the spa pillows:
1. Carefully lift one end of the pillow away from the spa shell.
2. Continue lifting one end until the pins on the bottom of the pillow are released from the pin
retainer on the spa shell. Do the same to loosen the other end of pillow.
53
3. To reinstall the spa pillow, carefully bend the pillow slightly to allow the pins to slip into the pin
retainer on the spa shell.
4. Keeping the pillow slightly bent, slide the other pins (opposite end) onto the pin retainer on the
spa shell.
5. After all the pillow pins are in place, press the pillow down into the recess in the spa shell.
Important:
Just pulling the pillow straight up, and out of the shell recess, will eventually
damage the pillow. This abuse is not covered under warranty.
Car e of the Exterior
Spa Shell
Your Saratoga Spa is manufactured with a tough acrylic surface. Some staining or water
marking may occur at or above the water surface. Removal of these surface conditions can
usually be accomplished with a soft cloth by merely wiping them away. Stubborn stains can
be removed first by draining the spa and then using a nonabrasive product. Always
thoroughly rinse off any spa shell cleaning agent with fresh water.
Important:
Keep all cleaners out of the reach of children and use care when applying.
Spa Cabinet
The skirt around your Saratoga Spa is manufactured with the finest quality material and is
available in a low maintenance exterior.
WeatherAll™ Skirt
The WeatherAll™ skirt combines the durability of plastic with the look of professionally
finished wood.To remove any stains or dirt simply spray the skirt with water and wipe
down with a soft cloth.WeatherAll™ is not designed to be stained or resealed.
Note: WeatherAll™ could experience natural fading due to sunlight and weather exposure.
Car e of the Spa Cover
Vinyl Cover
Your vinyl thermal spa cover has been designed for your particular spa. Monthly cleaning and
conditioning is recommended to maintain its beauty.
To clean and condition the vinyl cover:
54
1. Remove the cover from the spa and gently lean it against a wall or fence.
2. With a garden hose, spray the cover to loosen and rinse away dirt or debris.
3. Using a large, non-abrasive sponge and using a very mild soap solution (one teaspoon dishwashing
liquid with two gallons of water) scrub the vinyl top in a circular motion. Make sure to rinse all
soap off the cover before it dries.
4. Scrub the cover’s perimeter and side flaps. Rinse clean with water.
5. Rinse off the underside of the cover with water only (use no soap), and wipe it clean with a dry
rag.
6. To condition the cover after cleaning, apply a thin film of saddle soap (follow directions on the
container) or vinyl conditioning cream.
Important reminders:
• DO unlock and release all cover locks before attempting to open cover.
• DO remove snow buildup to avoid damage of the foam core from the additional weight of the
snow (not covered under warranty).
• DO lock cover lock straps to secure the cover when the spa is not in use.
• DO NOT drag or lift the spa cover using either the flaps, or the cover tie downs.
• DO NOT walk, stand, or sit on the cover.
Important:
Whenever the spa is not in use it is essential that the thermal cover be kept in
place. When filled this ensures effective temperature maintenance and
economical operation. When empty this prevents potential damage to the
spas surface finish which can result from excessive heat caused by the sun.
This type of damage is specifically excluded from warranty protection. It is
recommended that the thermal cover tie downs always be used to discourage
access to the spa by unsupervised children and minimize heat loss.
*The spa cover manufacturer handles all warranty claims. Saratoga Spa does not handle any
warranty issues on the spa cover. Every Saratoga Spa is equipped with a locking cover that
meets the ASTM F1346-91 standard for safety covers.
Winterizing Your Spa
If you chose not to use your Saratoga Spa during the winter is it recommended to properly
winterize your spa. Any damage occurring due to accidental freezing of the spa is not
covered under warranty.
The following steps are designed to protect your spa from freezing if followed. For ultimate
protection against freeze damage to your spa, contact your local Saratoga Dealer to
schedule a winterizing service plan.

Water Quality Maintenance
General Information
As the owner of a spa, endless hours of entertainment, recreation, and relaxation await you.
Caring for your spa will become a routine and pleasant part of your daily activities.You will
be able to maintain your spa water and keep your spa equipment in excellent condition.To
do so you first must balance your spa’s water.
Balanced Water
Balanced water ensures spa bathers’ safety as well as protecting the spa heater and
components from corrosion. Also, balanced water protects the spa surface from unsightly
scale deposits which reduce the efficiency of the spa equipment.You can obtain balanced
water by correctly adjusting a few chemical components in the water. Specifically, you will
need to adjust the pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness
Note: Improper water chemistry can result in product failure and invalidate your warranty.
pH
pH is measured on a scale that runs from 0-14. pH indicates whether water is neutral, acidic,
or basic.The drawing below shows a pH equal to 7.0 is neutral.A pH below this point is acidic
and a pH above this point is basic.
0
NEUTRAL
7.0
ACIDIC
7.2
Recommended Range - 7.2 to 7.8
If the pH is too low it can
1. Corrode metal surfaces.
2. Use excess sanitizer.
3. Irritate bathers’ skin and eyes.
Test pH weekly
14
8.0
IDEAL
RANGE
BASIC
7.8
If the pH is too high it can
1.
2.
3.
4.
Deposit scale on surfaces.
Contribute to cloudy water.
Cause eye irritation.
Reduce sanitizer efficiency.
Adjusting pH
To raise pH add a granular pH Increaser or sodium carbonate at the rate suggested on the
container.To lower pH add a granular pH Decreaser, or sodium bi-sulfate at the rate
suggested on the container. After initial application, allow water to circulate approximately
15 minutes on Pump 1 at high speed.Test pH and add second dose if required.
Total Alkalinity
There are minerals in your spa’s water that act as buffering agents.Total alkalinity is the
measurement of these alkaline materials that help prevent corrosion and staining.The correct
amount of alkalinity in your spa’s water will keep the water’s pH consistent while allowing
for economical pH adjustment when necessary.
57
Example: At low total alkalinity levels, the water’s pH easily drifts, making frequent pH
adjustments necessary and the added expense of multiple chemical treatments.
On the other hand, a high total alkalinity level keeps the waters pH rigidly fixed. If pH
adjustment is necessary, you will need unusually large amounts of treatment chemicals to
change the water’s pH.
RECOMMENDED RANGE - 80 to 120 PARTS PER MILLION (PPM)
Potential Problems:
1.
2.
pH difficult to maintain. If total alkalinity is too low, pH will drift.
Corrosive tendencies. If total alkalinity is too high:
• pH difficult to adjust (it remains fixed.)
• Cloudy water.
• Potential for scaling.
• High pH and low sanitizer efficiency.
Testing We ekly
Adjusting Total Alkalinity
Total Alkalinity can be raised with Alkalinity Increaser, or sodium bi-carbonate at the
manufacturer’s recommendation for dosage.
Calcium Hardness
Calcium hardness is the amount of dissolved calcium in your spa’s water.Too little calcium in
the water will etch plaster surfaces, too much will leave deposits on surfaces and
equipment.
Recommended Range: 125-150
Potential Problems:
Calcium Hardness Too Low:
• Some surfaces may be etched.
• May lead to equipment corrosion.
Calcium Hardness Too High:
• May contribute to cloudy water.
Adjusting Calcium Hardness
Raise hardness by the addition of calcium chloride. Decrease calcium hardness by draining
spa and replacing with water containing lower levels of calcium hardness.
58
Disinfectant
• Brominating Tablets, Granular Bromine and Granular Chlorine are popular disinfectants
and are particularly well suited to compliment your ozone purification system spa.They
are also very suitable products in water with elevated temperatures.
• Brominating Tablets and Granular Bromine are effective as a spa water sanitizer and
disinfectant. Follow manufacturer’s directions for proper dosage. It is recommended to
maintain an active bromine residual of 2.0 to 4.0 ppm.
• Granular Chlorine (Dichlor Dihydrate, Lithium Hypochlorite), is designed to dissolve quickly
and completely, provide a steady source of available chlorine to control the growth of algae,
kill bacteria and destroy organic contaminants. It is recommended to maintain a chlorine
residual of between 1.0 and 3.0 ppm.. Non-Chlorine type shock will oxidize or destroy
most of the organic contaminants that result from bather load.This quick acting oxidizing
shock treatment goes to work almost immediately improving water quality and eliminating
irritating wastes and odor.This product is intended to be a shock treatment only, and is
not a disinfectant.
Shock Treatment with Granular Disinfectant
Adding granular chlorine or bromine disinfectant to the water in amounts much larger than
normal is called “shocking” the spa and should not be confused with non-chlorine shock. An
occasional shock treatment destroys algae, bacteria, and chloramines. After shocking your
spa, do not allow bathers to enter the spa until disinfectant levels drop to normal.
What Causes Loss of Disinfectant?
• Algae: The presence of algae will consume large amounts of disinfectant. If you have an
algae problem, the use of an algaecide in addition to disinfectant may be necessary.
• Bather Load: The greater the number of people using your spa, the more disinfectant
you will need to use.
• Improper pH: A high pH above 7.8 substantially retards disinfecting. Keep the pH
between 7.2 and 7.8.
• Sunlight: The sun’s Ultraviolet (UV) rays readily dissipate disinfectant levels.
• Water Temperature: High water temperature accelerates the loss of disinfectant.
• Weather: Rain and wind can carry a significant amount of contaminants into your spa.
Remember to Maintain:
• pH 7.2 to 7.8
• Total alkalinity 80 to 120 ppm
• If using brominating tablets the proper level in dispenser
• Maintain granular chlorine residual level at 1.0 to 3.0 ppm
• Maintain bromine residual level at 2.0 to 4.0
• Calcium hardness 125-150
• Non-chlorine shock weekly or as needed based on spa use
• Test pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness weekly
• Test disinfectant daily
(Spa test kits are available through your Saratoga Spa Dealer.)
Ozone Generators
The Saratoga Spa Luxury Line comes equipped with an ozone generator. It automatically
produces ozone 24 hours a day through our Whisper Clean® System, unless it is overridden
by another system protection mode. (For ozone trouble shooting see page 56) The Ozone
generator is equipped with a chip that will need to be replaced approximately every two
years.This is a non-warranty item.
What is Ozone?
Ozone is nature’s natural purifier. It is a chemical known as O3 and is produced from simple
oxygen molecules in our atmosphere. Ozone will breakdown and oxidize oils, greases,
suntan lotions, sweat, urea, etc. from spa water more effectively than any other oxidizer
commercially available. Ozone also assists chlorine, or bromine, to destroy bacteria and
viruses and will do so more effectively. Ozone only leaves simple oxygen in the water as a
by-product.
How is Ozone Produced?
Ozone is produced in nature from lightning during electrical storms and is also produced
from ultraviolet rays from the sun to form our protective ozone layer.Your ozone converter
unit is designed to duplicate this natural sanitizer.
Note: Always follow instructions and dosages listed by chemical manufacturers. Use only

General Service Information
Your Saratoga spa has been designed to provide years of trouble-free use. As with any
appliance, problems may occasionally occur that require the expertise of a qualified service
person.Though such simple repairs as resetting a GFCI switch or breaker, resetting a high
limit thermostat or replacing a light bulb may not require a service call, they may indicate
that a more serious condition exists.These conditions may require an experienced service
person. Before calling for service, please refer to the Troubleshooting Guide.
Note: Always retain your original sales receipt for future reference.
Acts Invalidating Warranty
The limited warranty is void if the Saratoga spa has been improperly installed, subjected to
alteration, misuse, or abuse, or if any repairs on the spa are attempted by anyone other than
an authorized representative of Saratoga Spa Company. Alteration shall include any
component or plumbing change, electrical conversion, or the addition of any non-approved
sanitation or water purification device, or heating system which contributes to component
or unit failure or unsafe operating system. Misuse and abuse shall include any operation of
the spa other than in accordance with Saratoga Spa Company printed instructions, or use of
the spa in an application for which it is not designed; specifically: use of the spa in a nonresidential application; damage caused by operation* of the spa at water temperatures
outside the range of 35°F and 120 °F; damage caused by a dirty, clogged or calcified filter
cartridge; damage to the spa components or spa surface determined to have been caused by
improper water maintenance or improper use of chemicals (refer to pages 52-54 of this
owners manual); damage caused by allowing undissolved spa sanitizing chemicals to lie on
the spa surface (no spa surface material can withstand this kind of abuse); and damage to
the spa surface caused by leaving the spa uncovered while empty of water and in direct
exposure to sunlight (this may cause solar heating distress in warm weather regions).These
are considered abuses and may invalidate this warranty.
Acts of nature, and damage caused by animals, rodents, and insects are considered abuses
and are not covered under this warranty.
*Operation of the spa does not mean “use” of the spa! Saratoga Spa Company does not
recommend using the spa if the water temperature is above or below the spa’s control
panel temperature range.

incidental, consequential, special, indirect, or punitive costs, expenses or damages, which may
include but are not limited to the removal of a permanent deck or other custom fixture or
the necessity for crane removal. Any implied warranty shall have a duration equal to the
duration of the applicable limited warranty stated above. Some states do not allow limitations
on how long an implied warranty lasts. Under no circumstances shall Saratoga Spa Company
or any of its representatives be held liable for injury to any person or damage to any
property, however arising.
