Important Safety Instructions
Manufacturer’s warnings
In addition to the Safety Instructions found in this manual, these warnings have
been assembled to help you enjoy the use of your Roto Spa hot tub. Reading and
understanding these warnings will allow you to reduce the risk of causing
inadvertent damage to your Roto Spa hot tub, your surroundings, or yourself.
Read these warnings carefully.
The water level must be maintained at 6cm above the skimmer height. Do not let
the water level fall below the height of the skimmer level. If the water level falls
below the skimmer level this air will enter the system and may result in an
overheat situation and void the warranty.
Always turn off your Roto Spa before draining and filling process.
Maintain proper water pH (7.4-7.6), to high a pH level can damage the heater and
void warranty.
Never use an extension cord to connect the Roto Spa to the power source.
Using an extension cord will void your warranty.
Do not operate without an approved ground fault circuit interrupter. This
safety device shuts off the power immediately in the event of an electrical
short.
Install the Roto spa only on floors or areas that can withstand repeated exposure
to water. Splashing, dripping, filling and draining are routine operations, which
spill water. Equipment failure may also cause substantial water spillage. If located
in a multiple floor structure, objects on the floor below should be protected in the
event of a major spill.
Certain objects reflect and concentrate the sun’s rays. Close proximity of the Roto
Spa cover to such objects should be avoided or damage may incur.
When changing the water or storing the Roto spa do not leave in direct sunlight.
This may cause damage to the shell of the Roto spa.
Do not open the controller. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Opening
the control unit will void the warranty.

Installation Instructions
Site Selection
Before selecting a site, please read the Safety Information, Manufacturer’s Warnings and the relevant
indoor/outdoor sections.
Your Roto Spa is completely self-contained and portable. It can be set up on a patio, deck or even indoors.
The dimensions of your Roto spa are 33” (84cm) high X 78.5” (199cm) wide.
1.
2.
3.
Structure: The Roto Spa should always be placed on a structurally strong, relatively smooth and
level surface.
Drainage: do not place the Roto Spa in an area where water will puddle around the tub.
Electrical: Allow easy access to the controller situated behind the access panel for electrical hook
up.
Outdoor Installation
Your Roto Spa is totally self-contained and portable. You can place it just about anywhere you wish; on
any smooth surface (tile, concrete, wood, and brick). Verify the tub is placed on a firm, level well-drained
base prior to set-up. If you need to step on grass or dirt to enter the Roto Spa, we recommend the use of
stepping-stones to reduce the amount of dirt and debris entering the tub.
ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE SPA RESTING ON AN UNEVEN SURFACE WILL NOT BE
COVERED BY THE WARRANTY.
When considering an installation site, always allow for easy access to your equipment. The installation site
should also allow enough room to completely remove and store the spa cover during used.
Indoor/Basement Installation
Water splashing on the floor during use may cause a walking hazard and/or structural damage unless good
drainage is provided. Proper building materials must be used in the area surrounding and beneath the tub.
Take into consideration the room humidity, which will exist due to high temperatures. Providing natural or
forced ventilation in the room will help maintain comfort and minimize moisture damage to the
surrounding environment. Consult an architect for aid in designing your indoor Roto Spa room.
Note: Using your spa for 15 to 20 minutes gives off the same moisture/condensation as a 15 to 20 minute
shower, so a proper bathroom fan should be installed.
Site Preparation
As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to provide a suitable, level foundation for your Roto Spa since the
delivery crews are not equipped to level or prepare sites.
Keep in mind that placing the spa on grass or dirt may increase the amount of debris that is inadvertently
brought into the spa water on users’ feet.
Caution: Your Roto Spa is not intended to be installed below ground level.
-8-
Deck Installation
You must know the deck’s maximum load capacity to be certain your deck can support the spa. Consult a
qualified building contractor or structural engineer. Your Roto Spa when filled with water has a maximum
weight of 3300 lb or 1497 kg.
Electrical Connection
On the standard 120 V plug in application the heater is 1 KW and heats on low speed only.
Your Roto Spa comes standard with a 15 foot corded connection complete with an inline GFCI ready to
plug into a dedicated 15 amp 120 V household outlet.
Roto Spas have been designed to meet the maximum safety requirements to prevent electrical shock.
Improper wiring may cause electrocution, risk of fire, risk of injuries, and damage to the equipment. Never
use an extension cord to connect the Roto Spa to the power source.
Electrical wiring 240 volt
Hardwiring the Roto Spa to 240 volt will change the heater to 4 KW from 1 KW and it will heat
when the jets are on high speed as well as low speed.
240 volt wiring must be installed by a qualified electrician and must be done in
accordance with the local electrical code.
240 volt application requires a minimum #8 gauge 3 wire with ground, 40 amp breaker
and a spa GFCI
Bonding Lug
Warning
This product must always be connected to a circuit protected by a ground fault interrupter
Proper wiring of the electrical service box, GFCI and in.xe terminal block is essential!
Check your electrical code for local regulations. Only copper wire should be used, never
aluminum.
To install the wiring for the in.xe spa control, you'll need a Phillips screwdriver and a flat screwdriver.
Loosen the 2 screws of the spa pack door and open it. Remove 5 1/2" of cable insulation. Strip away 1" of
insulation on each wire. Pull the cable through the cutout of the box and secure it with a strain relief (1" NPT
strain relief; hole diameter: 1.335"). Make sure that only the uncut sheathing is clamped at this opening.
Push the color-coded wires into the terminals as indicated on the sticker and use the flat screwdriver to
tighten the screws on the terminals.
After making sure wire connections are secure, push them back into the box and close the door. Tighten the
2 screws of the spa pack door. Connect the bonding conductor to the bonding lug on the front of the in.xe
spa pack (a grounded electrode conductor shall be used to connect the equipment grounding conductors).

Starting Your Roto Spa
Caution: The control module must never be operated without water in the Roto
Spa; serious damage to the heater and/or pump may result.
NOTE: Never fill your spa with soft water. Soft water makes it impossible to
maintain the proper water chemistry and may cause the water to foam.
After your Roto spa has been positioned follow these instructions for start-up.
The same steps apply each time the Roto Spa is emptied and refilled:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
-
Ensure electrical power is off.
Do not connect power to an empty spa. Power to the Roto Spa automatically activates the electrical
equipment. Serious damage to the equipment components may result and this is a non-warranty
component failure.
Begin filling the Roto spa with water. The use of hot water is acceptable and will reduce the heating
time to the set point. When using this method you should first add 30mm of cold water. Filling the
Roto spa in stages will allow your hot water tank to recover.
Every Roto Spa has been tested during the manufacturing process to ensure functionality,
performance, reliability and complete customer satisfaction. As a result a small amount of water may
have remained in the system after testing. Clean the interior of the Roto Spa of any remaining debris.
Completely wipe the interior of the Roto Spa with a wet sponge or a soft rag. For added cleaning you
may use an isopropyl alcohol such as Windex.
Before filling your spa for the first time, remove the pump compartment door, check to ensure that
the unions on either side of the pump and heater units are hand-tight and the water valves are fully
open. Remove the filter lid and skimmer basket. Then insert the end of a garden hose into the filter
canister and begin filling the spa to the recommended level. The water level of the spa should be
approximately 3cm above the highest jet in the spa and at least 5 to 8 cm over the skimmer/filter
opening. Low water levels can cause damage to the pump and heater unit. Check all connections for
leaks and hand tighten union fittings as required. The equipment may shift slightly during
transportation.
Reinstall the skimmer basket and filter lid once the spa is filled and check to ensure that the filter is
installed correctly.
After the spa has been filled with water (and only when water level is adequate to avoid pump
damage) power up the Roto Spa. When the spa is powered up, the electronic system will
automatically activate and in the first few seconds of power-up the system will be in auto diagnosis
mode, checking the power levels (voltage correctness of wiring fuses etc.) At the end of the first
step, the temperature of the water will be displayed and the system will begin the heating process.
NOTE: Do not expect to feel hot water immediately coming from the jets. The highly efficient
heaters are designed to provide cost-saving, low level heating. The expected time to reach the set
point depends on initial water temperature and ambient temperature.

Use a siphon hose (eg: garden hose) to drain the Roto Spa completely. To start the siphon put the
hose over a jet while the pump is running on high speed until the hose starts draining, then place
the hose at the bottom of the foot well. TURN OFF THE POWER to the Roto Spa and let the tub
drain completely. Note: The larger the diameter and the shorter the hose the faster the tub will
drain. You may also use a submersible pump if available.
Use a wet/dry vacuum to blow any remaining water out of the jets by inserting hose into center
ring at bottom of filter canister. Then hold the vacuum over each jet to suction remaining water out
of lines.
Pour @ 2-4 litres of non toxic RV antifreeze into the center ring of the filter canister, turning the
pump on for AN INSTANT to quickly circulate the antifreeze, then top up again until antifreeze
comes out of the jets.
To restart the tub in the spring, fill the tub, run jets for several minutes, then empty and refill.
Lock the cover down. For added protection you can cover your spa with a good all weather spa
cover. This cover can be purchased through your local dealer.
Never allow the Roto Spa hot tub to run without water or in a low water situation.
This may damage components and void warranty
