Watkins GLW Owner`s manual

Limelight Collection
®
Congratulations on your decision to
enjoy the finest spa available...
Welcome to the growing family of
Hot Spring spa owners.
Pre-Delivery Instructions
Please take the time to read this booklet carefully, as it will provide you with the information you will need to ensure
the safe, secure, and timely installation of your new spa. The following sections are guidelines on how to prepare for
delivery and set-up of your new spa. Specifically covered are site selection, delivery access, ground preparation, and
electrical requirements.
Remember to carefully read the Owner’s Manual that accompanies your spa, and to complete the Warranty Card
within 10 days of delivery. These items, along with other valuable information, will be found in the Owner’s Package
which has been placed in the equipment compartment of your spa, where you will also find its serial number.
Watkins Manufacturing Corporation reserves the right to change features, specifications and design without
notification and without incurring any obligation.

In most cities and counties, permits will be required for the installation of electrical circuits or the construction of
exterior surfaces (decks and gazebos). In addition, some communities have adopted residential barrier codes which
may require fencing and/or self-closing gates on the property to prevent unsupervised access to a pool (or spa) by
children under 5 years of age. Your Hot Spring spa is equipped with a locking cover that meets the ASTM F1346-91
Standard for Safety Covers and as a result, is usually exempt from most barrier requirements. As a general practice,
your local Building Department will inform you of any applicable barrier requirements at the time a permit is obtained
for the installation of an electrical circuit. Your Hot Spring dealer can provide information on which permits may be
required.
Hot Spring Spa Pre-Delivery Instructions
Site Selection and Preparation
IMPORTANT: Site selection and preparation are your responsibility. Carefully read these instructions and consult
your authorized Hot Spring ® dealer if you have any questions.
You probably have a spot picked out for your new spa, whether it’s indoors or outdoors, on a patio or on a deck.
Just make sure you check the following:
• Always put your spa on a structurally sound, level surface. A filled spa can weigh a great deal. Make
certain that the location you choose can support the weight of your filled spa.
• Locate your equipment compartment, which houses all of the electrical components, in a place where
water will drain away from it. Allowing water into the equipment compartment can damage the electronics,
or may result in tripping your house’s circuit breaker.
• Leave yourself easy access to the circuit breakers in the subpanel.
• Never let water get into the subpanel. Your spa’s subpanel is raintight when installed correctly with the
door closed.
• Leave access to the equipment compartment for periodic spa care and maintenance.
Outdoor and Patio Installation
No matter where you install your new spa, it’s important that you have a solid foundation to support it. Structural
damage to the spa resulting from incorrect installation or placement on an inadequate foundation is not covered
under the spa’s limited warranty.
If you install the spa outdoors, a reinforced concrete pad at least four inches thick is recommended. The reinforcing
rod or mesh in the pad should be attached to a bond wire (see your Owner’s Manual). All Hot Spring spas may
be installed onto a deck, provided that the load capacity of the deck is greater than the dead weight of the spa (see
Deck Installation).
Deck Installation
To be certain your deck can support your spa, you must know the deck’s maximum load capacity. Consult a
qualified building contractor or structural engineer before you place the spa on an elevated deck or
indoors. To find the weight of your spa, its contents and occupants, refer to the Spa Specification chart located
further into these instructions. This weight per square foot must not exceed the structure’s rated capacity, or serious
structural damage could result.
Indoor Installation
Be aware of some special requirements if you place your spa indoors. Water will accumulate around the spa, so
flooring materials must provide a good grip when wet. Proper drainage is essential to prevent a build-up of water
around the spa. When building a new room for the spa, it is recommended that a floor drain be installed. The
humidity will naturally increase with the spa installed. Water may get into woodwork and produce dryrot, mildew,
or other problems. Check for airborne moisture’s effects on exposed wood, paper, etc. in the room. To minimize
these effects, it is best to provide plenty of ventilation to the spa area. An architect can help to determine if more
ventilation must be installed.
Your Hot Spring dealer can help you with local information such as zoning regulations and building codes.
DELIVERY ACCESS
First, locate the dimensions of your spa on the following chart. The dimensions shown are the measurements of
the spa in the vertical position, laid on its side.
Next, contact your dealer to find the height and width added by the delivery cart which the dealer will use to deliver
your new spa. Use the height of the cart plus the dimension shown as H to determine the vertical clearance
required to pass the spa and cart. Use the width of the cart, or dimension W, whichever is greater, to determine the
maximum width of clearance necessary.
Pre-Delivery Instructions
Page 2
NOTE: It may be necessary to allow for additional over-head
clearance if the spa (with cart) will be pushed up or down an
incline or moved up or down a short flight of stairs.
Use the information below to determine the requirements for
access to your desired location.
It may be necessary to remove a gate, part of a fence, or
other movable obstructions in order to roll the spa to its
installation site. About ten percent of the time, a crane is the
only way to install the spa by lifting it to its final destination.
If the spa has to be taken off of the cart to go over a wall
(either because the entry area is too narrow, the eaves are
too low, the corner is too tight, or the stairway is too steep), a
crane will be required. Don’t be alarmed!
The crane has a truck-mounted boom which can fit right in
your driveway. Crane operators are licensed and insured.
For a charge, the crane operator will lift your spa over walls, buildings, or any other obstruction and place it as close
to the installation site as possible. The Hot Spring ® spa delivery personnel will supervise the crane delivery and
complete the spa installation. Crane delivery typically takes an average of 30 minutes to complete.
NOTE: If your spa delivery requires the use of a crane, you may be required to pay for its services at the completion
of the delivery.

GROUND PREPARATION
Your Hot Spring spa has been engineered to perform on several kinds of surfaces. While a concrete slab is best for
long-term use*, other foundations are acceptable so long as a level base is prepared prior to delivery.
*NOTE: A reinforced concrete pad at least four inches thick or a deck that is able to withstand more than 125lbs. per
square foot is recommended for the Gleam™, 115lbs. per square foot is recommended for the Pulse® spa, 110lbs.
per square foot is recommended for the Flair ® spa and 105lbs. per square foot is recommended for the Bolt™ and
100lbs for the Glow ® spas.
INSTALLATION NOTES:
• If stepping stones or railroad ties are selected for the spa
foundation, they should be placed at the designated leveling
areas of your spa to maintain even distribution of the spa
weight.
• It is important to note that soft surfaces, even when stepping
stones are used to distribute the weight of the spa as evenly
as possible, will still have a tendency to settle unevenly,
resulting in an unlevel spa.
• Remember, placing the spa on grass or dirt may increase
the amount of debris which is inadvertently brought into the
spa water on the user’s feet.
If you are purchasing a deck package or a gazebo with your spa,
a solid foundation becomes mandatory. Placing them on any
surface other than a single level pad could create problems with
their installation. Pictured at right are a few of the recommended
surfaces.
As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to provide a suitable, level
foundation for your spa. Keep in mind that most delivery crews are
not equipped to level and prepare spa sites.

NOTE: In order for the spa to operate properly and the internal plumbing to drain completely, you must ensure that
the spa is leveled after it has been installed.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
To ensure you will have an opportunity to use your spa soon after delivery, it is very important that the required
electrical service has been installed. Unless otherwise stipulated by your dealer, THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.
IMPORTANT: All electrical circuits must be installed by a qualified, licensed electrician.
230 VOLT OPERATION REQUIREMENTS
230 volt models require a 50 or 70 amp, single phase, 230 volt circuit breaker in the main electrical service panel.
All 230 volt Hot Spring ® spas must be wired in accordance with applicable local and national electrical codes, all
electrical work must be done by a licensed electrician.
NOTE: Watkins Manufacturing Corporation REQUIRES THE USE OF A SUBPANEL TO SUPPLY POWER AND
PROTECT THE SPA. On the Gleam™, Pulse ®, Flair ® and Glow ® models, the 50 amp subpanel containing GFCI
breakers is included with the spa. On the converted 230 volt Gleam and Bolt™ models, the subpanel containing
GFCI breakers must be purchased separately and can be purchased from your Hot Spring dealer.
A licensed electrician should install a four-wire electrical service (two line voltages, one neutral, one ground) from the
main electrical service panel to the subpanel, and from the sub-panel to the spa per the appropriate wiring diagram
as illustrated below.
The grounding conductor must be at least #10 AWG. Your electrician should mount the subpanel in the vicinity of the
spa but it should not be closer than five (5) feet from the spa water edge (NEC 680-38 to 41-A-3).
INSTALLATION NOTE: After the spa has been installed by the dealer’s delivery crew, your electrician can connect
the conduit from the subpanel to the spa’s IQ 2020 ® Control Box and then complete the wiring connections in the
control box.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Three different wiring diagrams are shown: one Gleam, Pulse, Flair and Glow models 50 amp,
one Gleam 70 amp and one for a Bolt 50 amp model. Always follow the wiring diagram for your specific model.
NOTE: Complete step-by-step Installation and Wiring Instructions for all 230 volt Hot Spring models are included in
the Owner’s Manual and with each sub-panel, which can be obtained from your dealer.
WIRE SPECIFICATION NOTE: Long electrical runs may require a larger gauge feed wire than stated. We
recommend that a maximum voltage drop of 3% be used when calculating the larger wire size.
Refer to the Wiring Diagrams below for the electrical requirements of the 230 volt Pluse, Flair and Glow models.
WARNING! The exact physical location of the terminals on the GFCI
breaker will vary between manufacturers. Connecting the hot wire to
the neutral terminal will cause irreversible damage to the control box.

IMPORTANT: ALL WIRING SHOULD BE COPPER.
115/230 Volt convertible Model
(BOLT™ model)
This model can be converted to 230 volt operation with the addition of a subpanel and a control box wiring change.
Consult your dealer before attempting to convert from 115 volt operation to 230 volt operation. Any damage to the
spa from improper conversion is not covered under the warranty.
115 volt GFCI
The Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is a safety device that is designed to detect as little as 5 milliamps
(±1mA) of electrical current leakage to ground. Watkins Manufacturing Corporation recommends that the GFCI be
tested prior to each use to ensure it is functioning correctly. With the spa connected to the
power supply, push the "Test" button. The spa should stop operating and the GFCI power
indicator will go out.
Wait 30 seconds and then reset the GFCI by pushing the Reset button. The GFCI power
indicator will turn on, restoring power to the spa. If the interrupter does not perform in this
manner, it is an indication of an electrical malfunction and the possibility of an electric shock.
Disconnect the plug from the receptacle until the fault has been identified and corrected.
IMPORTANT: Failure to wait 30 seconds before resetting the GFCI may cause the spa’s
Power indicator (on the control panel) to blink. If this occurs, repeat the GFCI test procedure.
Never use the GFCI as a means to disconnect power to the spa (always unplug it). If the
GFCI is tripped while the spa is plugged in, and a power outage occurs, when power returns
the GFCI will automatically reset and power will flow to the spa.
115 volt Operation (60Hz Only)
The spa must be connected to a dedicated 115 volt, 20 amp, GFCI protected, grounded circuit. The term “dedicated”
means the electrical circuit is not being used or shared for any other electrical items (patio lights, appliances,
x
Pre-Delivery
Instructions
12x
Page 12
garage circuits, etc.). If the spa is connected to a non-dedicated circuit, overloading will result in “nuisance tripping”
at the main panel. This requires frequent resetting of the breaker switch at the house electrical breaker panel and
introduces the possibility of damage or failure of spa equipment. The dedicated circuit must be properly wired; that
is, it must have a 20‑amp GFCI circuit breaker in the house breaker panel, #12 AWG or larger wire (including the
ground wire) and the correct polarity throughout the circuit.
NEVER CONNECT THE SPA TO AN EXTENSION CORD!
A pressure wire connector is provided on the exterior surface of the control box, inside the spa. This is to permit
the connection of a ground bonding wire between this point and
any metal equipment, enclosures, reinforced concrete pad, pipe,
or conduit within 5 feet of the spa (if needed to comply with local
building code requirements). The bonding wire must be at least a
#10‑AWG solid copper wire.
Bond the spa to all exposed metal equipment or fixtures, handrails,
and concrete pad per N.E.C. Article 680 and all local codes.
Installation Instructions
The 115 volt Bolt™ spa model comes equipped with approximately
15 feet of useable power cord (this is the maximum length allowed
by Underwriters Laboratory and the National Electric Code). When
the spa is installed, the power cord will come out of the bottom of the
equipment compartment door. For your safety, when the electrician is
installing the 20 amp single electrical outlet and waterproof cover, the
outlet should be no closer than 5 feet (1.5 meters) and no farther than
10 feet from the spa [reference National Electrical Code 680-6a(1)
and 680-41a].
The Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is located at the end of
the power cord. This device is for your protection. It is very important
to protect it from rain and other moisture. Test once a month, with the
plug connected to the power supply,
1. Push the “Test” button on the GFCI breaker. The spa should
stop operating and the GFCI power indicator will go out.
2. Wait 30 seconds, then push the “Reset” button. Power will be restored to the spa and the GFCI power
indicator will turn on.
If the GFCI fails to operate in this manner, your spa may have an electrical malfunction, and you may be risking
electrical shock. Turn off all circuits and do not use the spa until the problem has been corrected by an authorized
service agent.
Warning: Removal of the GFCI from the spa’s power cord will result in an unsafe spa and will
void the spa’s warranty.
IMPORTANT: Should you ever find the need to move or relocate your Hot Spring® spa, it is essential that you
understand and apply these installation requirements. Your Hot Spring spa has been carefully engineered to provide
maximum safety against electric shock. Remember, connecting the spa to an improperly wired circuit will negate
many of its safety features.
ADVantage to having your spa converted
In the 115 volt configuration, either the heater, or the jet pump can operate, but they can’t work at the same
time. In a 115 volt system, as long as the jet pump is activated, the heater will not turn on. On the other
hand, when the spa is converted to operate in the 230 volt configuration, the heater and jet pump can
operate simultaneously.
The heater will operate at 1500 watts when the spa is configured as a 115 volt cord-and-plug connected model,
and at 6000 watts when the spa is configured as a 230 volt converted model heating your spa water faster.
