U.L. AND E.T.L. SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
The following instructions are required to be printed by Underwriters
Laboratory (U.L.) as well as ETL Testing Laboratories, Inc. as a
condition of their listing of this product. They contain important
safety information, and we strongly encourage you to read and apply
them.
When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic safety
precautions should always be followed, including the following:
IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
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.
A. WARNING - 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 or
hot tub unless they are supervised at all times.
3. Connect to a grounded, grounding type receptacle only.
4. Do not bury cord.
5. WARNING - To reduce the risk of electrical shock, replace damaged
cord immediately.
6. DANGER - To reduce the risk of injury to persons, do not remove

7. A pressure wire connector is provided in the Power Pack 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 enclosures or electrical equipment, metal water
4
Comfort Line Products, Inc.
pipe, or conduit within 5 feet (1.5m) of the unit as needed to
comply with local requirements.
8. This appliance is provided with a ground-fault circuit interrupter
(located near the end of the power supply and with the unit
operating, push the test button. The unit should stop operating
and the reset button should pop out slightly. Push the reset button.
The unit should now operate normally. If the interrupter fails to
operate in this manner, there is a ground current flowing, indicating
the possibility of an electrical shock. Disconnect the plug from the
receptacle until the fault has been identified and corrected.
9. DANGER - RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. Install at least 5
feet from all metal surfaces. A spa may be installed within 5 feet of
metal surfaces if each metal surface is permanently connected by a
minimum of #8 (SWG 8.4 mm) solid copper conductor attached
to the wire connector in the Power Pack which is provided for this
purpose.
10. DANGER - Risk of Electrical Shock. Do not permit any electrical
appliance, such as a light, telephone, radio, or television, within 5
feet of spa or hot tub.
11. To reduce risk of injury:
A. The water in a spa or hot tub should never exceed 40°C
(104°F).Water temperatures between 38°C (100°F) and 40°C
(104°F) are considered safe for a healty adult. Lower water
temperatures are recommended for extended use (exceeding
10-15 minutes) and for young children.
B. Since excessive water temperatures have a high potential for
causing fetal damage during the early months on pregnancy,
pregnant or possible pregnant women should limit spa or hot
water temperatures to 39°C (100°F).
C. CAUTION: Before entering a spa or hot tub, the user should
measure the water temperature with an accurate thermometer
since the tolerance of water temperature-regulating devices
may vary as much as +/-3°C (5°F).

User’s Guide
D. WARNING!! The use of alcohol, drugs or medication before
or during spa or hot tub use can greatly increase the risk of
fatal hypothermia. Hypothermia occurs when the internal
temperature of the body reaches a level several degrees above
the normal body temperature of 98.6°.
E. The symptoms of hypothermia include; an increase in
the internal temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy,
drowsiness, and fainting. The effects of hypothermia include;
(1) failure to perceive heat, (2) failure to recognize the need
to exit spa or hot tub, (3) unawareness of impending hazard,
(4) fetal damage in pregnant women, (5) physical inability to
exit spa or hot tub, and (6) unconsciousness resulting in the
danger of drowning.
F. 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 or hot tub.
G. Persons using medication should consult a physician before
using a hot tub since some medication may affect heart rate,
blood pressure, and circulation.
H. Water chemistry should be properly maintained as described
in this manual to prevent skin irritation.
ADDITIONAL WARNINGS
1. Never use an extension cord to connect the Power Pack to a power
source. The cord could cause a voltage drop which may cause
damage to the control and pump motor., and create a fire hazard.
2. Always operate Power Pack with the cord mounted GFCI in place
and functional. Failure to do so could result in a shock hazard.
6
Comfort Line Products, Inc.
3. Always operate spa with sufficient water. Water level must be
above filter. Insufficient water will cause pump failure and void
warranty.
4. Maintain proper water PH (7.4 - 7.6 is ideal). Failure to do so
may cause damage to vinyl liner, pump seals, heater element, and
damage will not be covered by warranty.
5. Install spa only on floors or areas that can withstand repeated
water exposure. Equipment failure as well as splashing, filling and
draining will spill water. If located in a multi-story building, care
must be taken to protect the objects on the floors below.
6. Install only on floors that can withstand the floor loading of your
spa. If in doubt, please consult an architect or engineer to determine
the floor rating before filing. See specifications.
7. Do not open Power Pack or the GFCI. Opening either component
will void the warranty.
8. When storing, always drain all water from tub, plumbing and
Power Pack, especially in freezing temperature as freeze damage is
not covered by warranty.
9. Always maintain proper water sanitation with chemicals and routine
cleaning. Warm water is an ideal place for bacteria to thrive. It’s
your sole responsibility to maintain proper water sanitation. Read
the sections on water chemistry and filter maintenance.
10. Never add water to chemicals. Always add chemicals to water to
avoid strong fumes or violent reactions that may result in hazardous
chemical spray.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
SITE PREPARATION
A. Structure: Your spa should always be installed on a
structurally sound, relatively smooth and level surface.
B. Electrical: The installation should be a grounded 120 volt
outlet within 8 feet of the spa and allow for easy access to the
cord mounted GFCI for periodic testing.
C. A copper wire connector is located in the Power Pack to
permit connection of a minimum No. 8 A.W.G. solid
copper bonding conductor between any metal equipment,
water pipe, or metal enclosures within 5 feet of the spa as
required to comply with the National Electric Code, or local
requirements.
INDOOR INSTALLATION
Give special consideration to the following issues when installing your
spa indoors.
1. Make sure the floor can support the total spa filled weight of 2569
pounds.
2. Install your spa on water resistant, non-slip floor. The floor should
have a drain to remove water splashed from the spa. Do not
install the spa on carpet or other material that will be damaged by
moisture.
3. 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.
4. Avoid installing the spa indoors on a second story above finished
living space due to the possibility of water and humidity damage.
5. Allow enough clearance around the spa for full access to the spa
equipment for service.

User’s Guide
OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Your spa may be installed on any level, smooth surface that is
strong enough to support the filled unit. Observe the following
considerations when deciding where to place your spa:
1. Make sure there are no sharp objects under the spa.
2. Do not install the spa on grass or dirt, as this will greatly increase
the amount of debris entering the spa. Stepping stones or a solid
wood 8 ft x 8 ft square platform, 5 to 9 inches in height, will
provide a sufficient area for installation.
3. Verify that there is adequate room to place the spa and permit safe
access.
4. Check local code requirements for restrictions (fencing, enclosures,
child proof gates, etc.)

User’s Guide
Turbo Operation
To turn the turbo wave pump on or off, push the on/off button. Look
to see if the spa blows bubbles uniformly all the way around the spa.
The turbo wave pump will automatically shut off after 15 minutes of
operation.
When the turbo wave blower system is activated, the blower pump
is pumping outside ambient air into the spa, creating much of the
action in the spa. Some cooling of the water will occur as the turbo
wave blower operates. This is normal and the heater will recover
lost temperature after use. Remember, at elevated temperatures, 15
minutes soaking time is considered safe.
The spa power pack contains a filter to help keep the water in the spa
clean. If the filter becomes dirty or clogged, water flow through the
power pack will be restricted. This may prevent the spa from heating
up. Refer to the Maintenance section of this manual for information
on checking and cleaning the filter.
Cover
After use, place the cover on the spa. Lock the plastic clips in eight
locations on the outside of the spa.
Always leave the cover locked and in place when the spa
is not in use. The cover is not a replacement for adult
supervision. Always supervise young children in and
around water.
NOTE:
20
The cover must be in place for the spa to heat up.

MAINTENANCE
Vinyl Care - Interior
1. Empty the spa and refill with clean water every 3 months or when
it becomes cloudy and proper water chemistry does not clear it up.
2. While empty, use a mild soap solution to wipe away any soil or
stains on the inner liner. Rinse thoroughly before refilling the tub.
Do not use cleaning aids such as steel wool, steel brushes or abrasive
cleaners such as steel wool, steel bristle brushes or abrasive cleaners
such as Comet or Ajax.
3. Remove and clean your filter twice a month or more often if
necessary.
4. REPAIR: If your liner does get a tear or puncture, your dealer can
provide you with patching material. Patch kits are also available
through any local hardware store. A secure, unnoticeable repair can
usually be made.
Vinyl Care - Exterior
The exterior of the spa as well as the thermal top is made to resist
mildew and discoloration.
1. Cleaning: Use a mild soap and water solution to wash the exterior
vinyl, then rinse with clean water. Avoid abrasive soaps or tools or
any other solvents.
2. Repair: The vinyl can be repaired using standard vinyl repair
techniques. Pieces of material can be obtained through your
dealer.

Recommended Chemical Balances
PH: 7.4 - 7.6
Total alkalinity: 80 - 120 ppm
Calcium hardness: 150 - 250 ppm
Bromine residual: 2 - 3 ppm
Total dissolved solids below 1,500 ppm
Purchase a test kit from your dealer and test you water chemistry after
each use of the spa, but no less than once per week. Avoid a low pH,
as this will cause unsightly wrinkles to form in the liner, damage
to the heater and void the warranty.
If a bromine feeder is used that requires holes to be punched in,
start with one hole punched at the top of the feeder and one hole
punched at the bottom. Place in the spa water and retest water after
2 days. If the bromine level has not increased to the ideal 3-5 ppm
range, punch another hole in the bottom of the feeder and retest after
another 2 days.
Avoid punching too many holes in the feeder as this could cause over
bromination, which could bleach out the liner and void the warranty.
If the bromine level in the spa reaches 5 ppm or higher, remove
bromine feeder from the spa until sanitizer level drops to the correct
level (2-3 ppm).
Chemical Additions
1. Always have the water circulating when adding chemicals. Add
only one chemical at a time.
2. Completely pre-dissolve any granulated chemicals in a water filled
bucket so no granules rest on the vinyl surface. Never allow bromine
tablets to rest on vinyl floor surface.
3. Add chemicals. Always pre-dissolve or pre-dilute the chemicals you
add. With a 5 gallon bucket, dip a few gallons of water out of the
tub. Add the chemicals to the bucket and stir until they are fully
dissolved or diluted. With the spa jets turned on, slowly add the
bucket of water back into the tub in the stream on one of the jets
22
Comfort Line Products, Inc.
to ensure mixing. If you do not premix your chemicals, you may
damage your vinyl surfaces and void your warranty.
4. Do not use gas chlorination, chlorine tablets, ionizers, scents, salts
or soaps without consulting with your dealer.
Cleanliness
1. Empty the spa and fill with clean water at least every 3 months or
when it becomes cloudy and proper water chemistry does not clear
it up. Always unplug the power pack before draining the spa.
The spa is easily drained by using a hose to siphon out the water.
Do not lift the spa if it contains more than 1/4 inch of water.
2. Remove and clean your filter once a week, or more often if necessary.
Dirty filters will keep the spa from heating.
Storing or Draining your Spa
1. Winterizing / Vacationing: If you are taking a vacation or leaving
your spa unused for a week or so you should take a few simple
precautions. Leave the thermal top on, turbo control off and set
the thermostat dial to low. This will allow the pump to come on
from time to time to filter the water and protect the spa in freezing
temperatures. Upon return, check the bromine and pH levels.
2. Storing: The spa may be stored in its original box. Make sure all
water is drained from the spa and Power Pack. We recommend the
use of a wet/dry vac to blow out or suction water from spa pipes
and Power Pack lines. Additional care must be taken in freezing
climates as plastic becomes more brittle and susceptible to breakage
when exposed to sub zero temperatures.
3. Draining the spa: To drain spa use a garden hose to siphon the
water out. Place one end of the hose in front of the jet to start
siphon action. Place hose on floor of the spa. Then unplug the
power cord and drain to a suitable place. Important!

Heater Problems
Symptom
Solution
No heat
1. This may be caused by a dirty filter: Clean
the filter per the instructions provided in the
Maintenance section of this manual. If the filter
is more than two months old, replace it. After
cleaning or replacing the filter, cover the spa, turn
the temperature set point all the way up, and leave
the spa for 24 hours. If the spa still will not heat,
contact the manufacturer for instructions.
No heat and no
circulation
1. The water pump may be air bound: Unplug the
power pack from the electrical outlet. Bleed air
from the filter tank by turning the bleed fitting
on the top of the filter tank counter-clockwise.
After one minute, or when water drips from the
fitting, close the bleed fitting and plug in. If the
water pump still does not pump water, contact
the manufacturer for instructions.
If the water pump becomes air bound again,
check the o-ring on the top of the filter tank.
Refer to the filter changing instructions in the
Maintenance section of this manual. Replace the
o-ring if necessary.
No heat and
no temperature
display
1. Bad power pack: Ensure power is available to
the spa. Check the circuit breaker at the main
electrical panel. Connect another electrical
appliance to the plug used for the spa. If power
is available to the spa, test the GFCI using the
instructions supplied in the Maintenance section.
If the GFCI is working properly and the power
pack does not function, then the power pack
may have an internal component problem. If the
GFCI is not working properly, do not use the
spa. Immediately contact the manufacturer for
instructions.

Heater Problems
No heat and
temperature
display of ‘OH’
1. In some situations, the numerical temperature
display may read ‘OH’ (overheat) and the spa will
not heat until reset. To fix this problem, please
use the following procedure:
A. If the spa water is still warm (over 104°F /
40°C), unplug the power pack and let the
water cool to below 104°F / 40°F. (Use a
thermometer to verify the temperature.)
B. Plug the power pack back in and press
the small reset button directly below the
temperature display. This will clear the
‘OH’ message and the spa will resume
normal operations.
Should this problem occur repeatedly,
please call our customer support for further
instructions.
