IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
READ ALL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath does not recommend spa water
temperatures in excess of 40°C (104°F). High water
temperatures in excess of 40°C (104°F) and prolonged
periods of use can raise the internal human body temperature excessively and impair the body’s ability to regulate its
internal temperature. Limit your initial use of the spa to
10-15 minutes. High body temperatures affect people
differently; consult your physician about your safety and
comfort before using the spa.
The elderly, the infirm, and children should not use the spa
unattended. Infants should not be permitted in the spa at
water temperatures over 38°C (100°F). Pregnant women
and people with heart conditions should consult their physicians before using the spa at water temperatures over
38°C (100°F).
Extra care should be taken when using the spa and consuming alcoholic beverages. Alcohol, drugs, or certain
medications such as tranquilizers affect a person’s ability to
withstand high temperatures and may produce dangerous
effects.
Keep body, hair, and clothing a minimum of 300mm (12
inches) away from suction fitting and skimmers at all times
when the spa is operating. Hair longer than shoulder length
should be secured close to the head, or a bathing cap
should be worn. Do not remove the suction grilles! They
are safety devices and must always be in place on the
suction fitting to minimize the potential hazard of hair
entanglement or body entrapment.
While the optional spa cover is rigid, it is not designed to
support any weight. Therefore, as a safety precaution, do
not sit, stand or lie on it.
The spa must be installed with adequate access and water
drainage system. (See Installation Instructions.)
When using the electrical equipment, basic safety
precautions should always be followed:
This unit is equipped with an earth leakage circuit breaker
(ELCB) located in the electrical cabinet. Check at least
once a month to be sure this is operational. (The procedure
for testing is described on page 7 of this manual.)
Do not use electrically connected devices such as television, radio, or stereo speakers, lights, cooking devices, or
telephones within 1.5m (5 feet) of the spa while the spa is
being used. Lighting fixtures must not be located directly
above or within 1.5m (5 feet) of the spa. If located with 3m
(10 feet) of the spa, they must be on a circuit protected by
an ELCB.
Do not apply power to the spa unless it is filled with water
to the normal water level, which is to the water level
indicator mark on the skimmer frame. Activating the spa
when there is an insufficient amount of water can damage
the circulation pump and may cause a fire.
Read manufacturer’s safety information provided with all
optional equipment.
The wet surface of the spa is slippery. Use care when
entering and exiting.
Save These Instructions for Future Use.

Installation Instructions
Inspection and Shipping Claim
Check for shipping damage upon receipt of the spa. Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath is not responsible for damage to the spa
sustained during shipping. If damage is evident before unpacking, see instructions regarding shipping claims on the outside
of the carton and immediately file a claim with the carrier.
Once the spa has been removed from the carton and before it is permanently installed (see below on this page for unpacking
instructions), check the spa completely for damage. Fill the shell with water and operate the system (see Operating
Instructions) to check for leaks which may have resulted from shipping or handling. All Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath spas are
factory tested for proper operation and watertight connections prior to shipping. If leaks or other problems are detected,
immediately notify your Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath dealer or Authorized Service Agent, or call Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath, (510) 9387411, for Warranty Service, (510-938-7411).
Npte: Damage or defects which could have been discovered anr repairedprior to installation and which are claimed
after final installation of the spa, are excluded from our warrenty.
Unpacking
1.
Remove the outer carton by disassembling bracing
and plastic bags. Leave the inner bag and corrugated
wrapping in place on the skirt to protect the product until
equipment set-up.
4.
When the spa has been moved to its final location,
place a wooden block approximately 100mm x 100mm
x 2m (4" x 4" x 72") beside the pan side of the spa so
it is parallel with the pallet. (See illustration B.)
2.
Remove the box containing skirt panels and the accessory package which contains the Owner’s Manual,
filter, cartridges, and extra lenses and bulbs. Set aside
skirt panels until equipment set-up. Set aside the filter
cartridges in a dry place until it is time to set up the spa
equipment. Store the extra lenses and bulb for later
use.
5.
Tip the spa over onto its bottom with the block supporting the spa.
6.
Remove the brackets attaching the spa to the pallet.
(See detail B.)
7.
Remove the bolts securing the pallet to the upper part
of the spa shell.
The spa should be moved on a dolly in its upright
position while still attached to its shipping pallet. If the
pallet must be detached before the spa is moved (for
example, to allow it to pass through a door), detach it
from the pallet as instructed below, then carefully place
it vertically on a dolly which is wide enough to support
the entire width of the spa. The skirt is cosmetic (not
structural) and is not designed to support the spa.
8.
Remove the 100mm x 100mm (4" x 4") block and pallet
and carefully lower the spa to a horizontal position.
9.
Attach two loose skirt panels included in skirt box.

Important: Read complete instructions before beginning installation.
Positioning Your Spa
Because your Quantum Plus spa is a portable, you can locate it just about anywhere you wish—on a deck, patio, or even
indoors. Just be sure to position it above ground in an area with good drainage and on a level, continuous surface which
can support the weight of the spa when filled with water and people; this weight is approximately 5252 lbs. (92 lbs. per sq
ft). You must also provide access to the spa’s equipment for service and general maintenance.
SERVICE ACCESS
18"
50"
Electrical Requirements
Your Quantum Plus, as it comes from the factory,
requires a 230 VAC 50 AMP 4-wire grounded type electrical service and must be in a separate circuit having no
other appliance connected in that circuit. If you do not have
this kind of circuit, a qualified electrician should be called
in to install the necessary wiring. Inadequately sized wiring
or locating the spa too far from the main service panel may
cause a voltage drop which might cause the unit to
malfunction and bring about permanent damage to the
spa’s electrical system. The circuit must also have a ground
wire in order to take advantage of the designed-in safety
features of the spa. Bond according to procedure described
on the next page. Caution: Without proper grounding and
bonding, a system malfunction may cause fatal shock.

INSTALLATION
Electrical Precautions
CAUTION
Do not apply electrical power to the spa unless it is
filled with water to the normal water level, which is
approximately 7" below the spa rim. (See location of
water level indicator on face of skimmer on page 6.) If
the spa’s motor/pumps are actuated when there is not
sufficient water in the unit, the circulation pumps could
be irreparably damaged. In addition to damaging the
unit, operating the unit with insufficient water could
cause a fire.
Do not locate lighting fixtures directly above the spa;
lighting and electrical receptacles must be located at least
5 ft (1.5m) from the spa. Lighting located between and 5
ft (1.5m) and 10 ft (3m) from the spa must be on a circuit
protected by a ELCB. (See National Electrical Code 6806).
Do not use electrically connected devices, such as
television, radio, telephones, stereo speakers, lights or
cooking devices within 5 ft (3m) of the spa when the spa
is being used.
All fixed metal objects located within 5 ft (1.5m) of the
spa, such as fence posts, railings, door frames, greenhouse structures, gutters, etc., must be attached to the
bonding bar on the outside of the spa System Control
Module using #8 solid copper wire. With #8 solid copper
wire, bond the spa to the house electrical panel or
approved local earth electrode.
An approved earth electrode may be an 8 ft. long
earth rod, a plate electrode, or a buried metal water
pipe with at least 10 ft. of buried pipe. Check your local
building code for requirements. Bonding lugs are available at your local electrical supply store. (Bond bar
location is shown on page 5.)
Outdoor Installation
If you install the spa outdoors, we recommend that you
provide a concrete pad for it to rest on. To do this, construct
forms for a 8' x 8' x 4" thick level pad.
spa—especially near the equipment area. If drainage is
poor, install a drain line and/or gravel drain field (see
illustration below).
Install a #10 gauge wire mesh approximately 6" x 6" steel
reinforced grid. Attach a #8 solid copper wire to the grid with
a ground clamp. This wire should be long enough to reach
the bond bar on the spa System Control Module (min 36"),
but should not be located under the base of the spa. Then
pour the concrete pad.
Indoor Installations
Drainage
Whether you install your spa indoors or outdoors, you
can drain it completely by attaching a garden hose to the
drain valve located on the suction tee of the spa. Simply run
the hose to the house sewer line or drain field and open the
drain valve.
Make sure the area surrounding the spa has good
drainage to keep water from collecting at the base of the
Water which splashes on the floor during use of the
spa may cause a walking hazard and/or structural damage unless good drainage is provided and proper waterproof building materials are used in the area surrounding
and beneath the spa. Take into consideration, also, the
high room humidity which will exist due to high spa water
temperatures. Providing natural or forced ventilation of
the room will help maintain comfort and minimize moisture damage to the building. Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath is
not responsible for damages resulting from excess moisture or water spillage. Consult an architect or engineer for
aid in designing your indoor installation.

Temperature Control
Turn on the heater by selecting the HTR/FILTER mode
on the SYSTEM selector switch.
With this selection, you can verify that the spa’s heater
is operating by viewing the HEATER ON light on the spa
side panel.
Set the Temp. Control knob by rotating it to the desired
temperature. (The temperature will be higher as the knob
is rotated clockwise.) When the water temperature is lower
than that set by the heater control, the heater and filter
motor/pump will be activated. The heater and filter functions will automatically turn off when the desired temperature is reached. When the heater is on, the water is also
being filtered. The heater will also maintain water temperature in the JETS mode.
The heater control is designed to maintain a minimum
temperature of approximately 7-10°C (45-50°F), its lowest
setting. This does not necessarily protect the spa from
freezing. See page 15 for winterizing procedures.
Setting the Thermostat
You will notice by the indicator light that the heater is on
when the water temperature falls below the desired temperature and will turn off when that temperature has been
reached.
When the spa is not in use, you can set the thermostat
to a lower temperature; then, when you wish to use the spa,
adjust the TEMP CONTROL knob to the desired temperature. The water temperature will rise at a rate of about 2°C
per hour with the optional spa cover, foam insulation and
skirt panels in place and if the air temperature is 10°C
(50°F) or warmer. This rate will necessitate a waiting period
before using the spa, the length of which will be determined
by the temperature of the water before turning on the
heater. For example, if the water in the spa is kept at about
21°C (70°F) when the spa is not in use, and the desired
temperature is 38°C (100°F), it will take about 8.5 hours to
heat up sufficiently.
Once you have determined the desired setting on the
thermostat knob, it is not necessary to change or readjust
it again during normal operation unless you decide on a
different setting.
The optional spa cover available for your spa will help
control heat loss from the water surface and thereby reduce
energy consumption. You can improve the spa’s heat
retention by keeping the spa cover in place on the spa while
heating the water.
Note on Determining Water
Temperature:
As spa products generally perform in a narrow range of
operating temperatures, we recommend that you use a
medical (clinical type) thermometer for an accurate measurement of spa water temperature. Other types of thermometers, generally available, such as those used for
swimming pools, are not sufficiently accurate for determining spa water temperatures. Take water temperature
readings in the HTR/FILTER mode when the heater has
just turned off; the indicator lamp on the control panel will
turn off at this time.

Whirlpool System
You can enjoy the Quantum Plus spa with or without
activating the whirlpool. Either way, bathing in your spa can
be pleasurable, as well as therapeutic. After a busy,
stressful day, you can look forward to soaking in your spa in
still water with no turbulence—only the gentle warmth of the
soothing and relaxing water.
The Water Rainbow spouts will add the soothing sound
of a waterfall to your bathing pleasure, as well as providing
For a more invigorating spa experience, you can take
advantage of the built-in whirlpool system. To do this, push
the SYSTEM switch button to select the JETS mode. Sit or
recline in the spa so you are comfortable. The six fully
adjustable whirlpool jets can be adjusted to control the force
of the water coming into the spa. For stimulating action,
increase the force of the flow by rotating the jet handles to
the left. For a more relaxing effect, rotate the handles to the
right (clockwise). The directionally adjustable whirlpool jet
located on the wall of the spa opposite the lounger side of
the spa, can be directed toward any location on the body,
particularly toward any area that feels tense or stiff. The jets
are located at various heights around the seating area to
allow a hydromassage of the upper or lower back. The
warmth of the water and the stimulating water flow from the
jet will pleasantly increase circulation.
Or, for the total whirlpool effect, you can adjust all jets so
they point in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction to
circulate the air and water mixture in a circular motion all
about the spa.
FULLY ADJUSTABLE WHIRLPOOL JET
Silent Air Induction
The intensity of the whirlpool action is determined by how
much air is inducted into the water. You have control of this
by adjusting the two air induction control knobs locatedon
both control panels. For maximum air induction, rotate each
control knob fully counter clockwise to the largest dot. For
fewer air bubbles, decrease the amount of air induction by
rotating the control knob clockwise. When the knobs are
turned to the smallest dot, only water is being circulated.

Activate the waterfall feature by first turning on the
JETS, HTR/FILTER, or FILTER function, then rotate
downward the flow control lever located on the left side
of the spout. Use this lever to adjust the amount of water
flowing through the Water Rainbow spout.
The
waterfall effect will be greatest in the JETS mode.
Turning off the flow at the fully adjustable jets will
dramatically increase the Water Rain- bow flow.
CAUTION:
The water circulating through the
Water Rainbow spouts is not fresh water and
therefore is not suitable for drinking.
Air Blower
The Quantum Plus features a built-in air blower and
factory drilled air holes in the seats of the spa.
The blower sends air to a channel located under the
spa’s seats; this air is distributed through the air holes, and
as the pressurized air is released from the holes, tiny
bubbles are formed. These bubbles travel upward through
the water and expand until they reach the surface and burst.
The exciting visual effect of the bursting bubbles contributes to the overall hydromassage experience.
Activate the blower by pushing the ACC switch.

WATER RAINBOW SPOUT
When you are ready to leave the spa, push the SYSTEM
switch button to turn off the whirlpool. Then select the HTR/
FILTER mode. Adjust the TEMP CONTROL knob to the
temperature at which you want the water maintained. In
this way, the water will be filtered when the heater goes on
to maintain the temperature. Running the filter pump for at
least two hours per day is sufficient. Another way to be sure
the water will be filtered is to turn the SYSTEM off and set
the timer in the System Control Module to turn the system
on at a preset time everyday. Maintain the waterlevel to the
indicator mark on the skimmer/filter frame. (See page 8 for
instructions on setting timer.)

Maintenance
Water Quality and Water Chemistry
Maintaining water quality and water chemistry in your spa is extremely important and should be a regular part of your spa
maintenance program, as a neglected spa can be a breeding place for dangerous bacteria.
The water quality of your spa is maintained by a combination of filtration and chemistry. The spa’s integral filter system
helps maintain the water cleanliness and clarity by trapping most solid materials such as body oils, hair, and other debris
resulting from normal use. However, the most important part of maintaining water chemistry is keeping the proper level of
disinfectant in the water at all times. This is accomplished by adding chlorine or bromine to the water, which will control
particles too small to be trapped by the filter, such as bacteria and algae, and will oxidize any organic materials. Follow
instructions provided here and with water quality products for the health and safety of spa users, as well as to make your
spa bathing as enjoyable as possible.
Filtration
The filtration system of your spa will keep your water
clear and clean if used properly. We recommend that you
run your filter system for at least two hours each day. The
filter cartridge elements will trap most solid materials and
debris in the water. However, the presence of materials
such as body oils or other particles which are too small to
be captured in the filters may bring about various undesirable water quality conditions. These conditions can be
corrected with the use of spa treatment chemicals which
are available from your Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath dealer.
Such conditions include the following:
spa water every day and adjusting the chemical
balance frequently. Obtain a water quality test kit,
designed espe-
Foaming: A defoamer is available to minimize foaming
of the water. This condition is usually caused by the
addition of soaps or oils, or other fatty substances to the spa
water. The interaction of these with hot water, especially at
high pH (more alkali) will cause the water to foam. (See
Water Quality Definitions.)
Oil Film or Cloudy Water: Add clarifier to congeal oil
film on the water surface into globules sufficiently large to
be trapped by the system’s filter. Cloudiness is caused by
particles that are too small to be trapped in the filter and is
also due to the presence of human body oils, lotions, and
cosmetics. After adding clarifiers, these materials will
accumulate on the filter element and clog its pores. The
addition of clarifier will make the water clearer, but clogged
filters must be cleaned as prescribed under the section
entitled “Filter Maintenance” in this manual.
Hard Water: Add a de-mineralizer to break down or
de-ionize mineral particles present in the spa water.
Follow the “Filter Maintenance” procedure described in
this manual to ensure optimum performance of your spa’s
filtration system.
Water Chemistry
You can ensure better water chemistry by testing your
www.clearcreekspas.com
www.clearcreekspas.com
cially for spas. The test kit must be of the type which allows
you to test for the disinfectant (chlorine) level, pH, and total
alkalinity. Make sure, that chemicals used in your spa are
especially for spa use, and not for swimming pools, as water
quality maintenance of spas and swimming pools is very
different.
Set up a daily program at first to check the disinfectant
level, pH, and total alkalinity of the water to familiarize
yourself with the amount of chemicals to add and to determine how often to make chemical adjustments during
normal use. Remember that the more heavily the spa is
used, the more often you must check the water chemistry.
When adding any chemicals, always run the filter system to
ensure complete dilution with the water. Do not add
chemicals directly into the skimmer opening.
Disinfecting:
When filling the spa for the first time, follow the purge/
sanitizing instructions in the Equipment Set-Up procedure
of the Installation Instructions.
Add a disinfectant to the water on a regular basis to help
control the amount of bacteria, algae and organic materials.
Such bacterial contaminants, if not controlled, could cause
skin rashes or other physical problems. To disinfect the spa
for normal use, first establish the amount of chlorine or
bromine to add and determine how often you need to add it.
We recommend that you maintain a free chlorine level of
2.0 to 5.0 ppm at all times except when you must exceed that
during the initial purge/sanitizing procedure or during
superchlorination. See “Water Quality Definitions” below.
Superchlorinate your spa every two weeks with heavy use.
If using sodium dichlor, add 15cc (1 tablesoon) for each 565
ltrs. (150 gallons) of spa water. Scrub the surfaces with this
solution to remove any oily deposits. This will ensure that
any bacteria or algae which are resistant to the normal
disinfectant level are killed. After adding the disinfectant,
run the filter system and allow the free chlorine level to

MAINTENANCE
Water Chemistry
Disinfecting (continued)
return to the 2.0 to 5.0 ppm range before using the spa
again. Do not install a rigid cover during this procedure until
the disinfectant level is back to normal. High concentrations of chlorine or bromine will damage metallic plated
finishes if the cover is in place.
Balancing pH:
For good hygiene and longevity, maintain the pH of your
spa water according to the instructions provided. pH is the
measure to determine if the spa water is too acid (low pH)
or too alkaline or basic (high pH). The ideal range for spa
water is 7.2 to 7.6 pH. For excessive acidity (below 7.2 pH)
add soda ash or sodium bicarbonate to the spa water. For
excessive alkalinity (above 7.6 pH) add dry acid to the spa
water. Caution: Refer to the spa chemical manufacturer’s
instructions for the initial amount of chemicals to add for the
gallonage of your spa. Low pH can cause equipment
damage, as acidic water will dissolve metals, while high pH
can cause scale or calcium deposits to build up in the
system or on the shell. After adding chemicals, run the filter
system for at least 30 minutes before testing water quality
again for accurate readings.
Balancing Total Alkalinity:
Total alkalinity is the measure of base materials in the
water. The recommended range for total alkalinity is between 80 ppm and 150 ppm. If the chemistry of the water
is not within this range, you will have difficulty adjusting your
pH level, which will affect your adjustments for the proper
amount of free available chlorine. If the alkalinity of your
spa water is high, it is advisable to drain the water from the
spa and begin the balancing process over again. Purge
and sanitize your spa (according to instructions in “Equipment Set-Up” section of the Installation Instructions) and
clean the spa surfaces thoroughly before refilling with fresh
water. Then re-establish water chemistry. If the spa is used
heavily, change the water at least every month.
WATER QUALITY DEFINITIONS
pH: A chemical term used in expressing relative acid-
ity or alkalinity in numeric values with 7.0 usually
regarded as neutral, and for purposes of this manual,
indicating pure water. From 7 to 0 indicates increasing
acidity, and 7 to 14 indicates alkalinity.
PPM: Parts per million.
Free Chlorine: Chlorine that has not combined with
other chemicals and that is available to destroy bacteria in the spa water.
TriChlor: A form of chlorine used in pool or spa water
treatment; usually supplied in tablet form. Not recommended because of its higher acidic nature and slow
dissolving action. Prolonged contact with the spa shell
may bleach or permanently mark the shell.
Sodium DiChlor: The type of chlorine that is
recommended for spa use, as it is available in fast
dissolving granular form. It is neither excessively acid
nor alkaline in character and does not readily dissipate
in higher water temperatures.
Calcium Hypochlorite: A granular chlorine product that is inexpensive and effective but not recom-
mended because it often tends to form calcium deposits on heater parts and plumbing fittings and leaves an
unattractive film on the spa at the water line.
Sodium Hypochlorite: A liquid chlorine product
that is inexpensive and effective but not recommended
because the liquid is readily spilled onto the spa or a
surrounding area, causing permanent damage.
Total Alkalinity: The measure of amount of alkaline materials (such as carbonates, bicarbonates and
hydroxides) in the water. High alkalinity inhibits the
effectiveness of chemicals to change the pH. If the
alkalinity of your spa water is high (above 150 ppm), it
is advisable to drain the water from the spa and begin
the balancing process over again. Low total alkalinity
(below 60 ppm) could be corrosive and damage your
spa system.
Superchlorination: (also referred to as "shock
treatment") The addition of an above-normal level of
disinfectant to kill any bacteria or algae that might have
become resistant to normal levels of disinfectant.

MAINTENANCE
Water Level/Drain
The water level in the spa must be maintained at its
normal level. Evaporation and splashing will cause the
water level to drop.
When concentrations of impurities from evaporation,
water quality chemicals, body oils, perfumes, dirty feet, and
winds, etc., accumulate in the spa and cannot be filtered
out, it is necessary to drain your spa and refill it with fresh
water. This should be done every 2 months or more often,
depending on the amount of use.
To drain the spa, turn all controls to OFF. Then turn off
circuit breakers at the main electrical panel. Connect a
garden hose to the hose bibb in the suction plumbing. Turn

Skimmer Basket Maintenance
The basket located in each skimmer of the spa should be
checked at least once a week for collection of debris, such
as leaves, hair, etc., and cleaned as necessary. To clean
the basket, remove it from the skimmer by pulling it out; then
backflush it with a garden hose and re-install.

Oils will coat the filters, resulting in a reduced flow. To
remove such materials, soak the cartridges in a plastic pail
containing a commercial filter cleaning solution (available
from most pool supply stores). Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for use. Another method is to soak the filter
cartridges in a plastic pail containing a mild solution of
tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) and water. An hour of soaking
time is usually required to break down oil coatings from the
cartridge. Use a stronger solution of TSP and water to
remove algae. Most hardware or paint stores stock TSP.
Use the same method of cleaning when cartridges become
clogged with clay or vegetation.
Replacement cartridges (P/N 6199000) are available
through your dealer.

MAINTENANCE
Automatic Filtration/Maintenance
If you plan to be away, you should maintain minimum water quality by running the filter system. To do this, set the timer
to turn the system on for at least two hours each day. This will cause the filter system to turn on at a desired time. Set
the timer according to instructions on page 8 with the SYSTEM switch OFF.
If you will be away for an extended period, however, we recommend that you drain the spa (following the procedure
described under “Winterizing” on this page), as long periods without maintenance of water quality could be detrimental to
the spa.
Another means of maintaining minimum water quality while away for less than two weeks is to follow the procedure
outlined for winterizing your spa in a warm climate. We do not recommend using this procedure more than 1 week
during the summer, when algae build-up is most likely.
Always keep your spa covered when not in use to reduce heat loss and evaporation and to prevent debris
from falling in.
Winterizing
In a climate where winter temperatures are below
freezing, follow this procedure when the spa will NOT be
used:
the panel being detached.
The panels can be re-attached to the spa by reversing
the above procedure.
1. Select the OFF mode.
2. Turn off power to the unit at the house circuit breaker.
3. Drain the spa completely by attaching a garden hose to
the hose bibb on the suction plumbing. Then remove
the hose and leave the hose bibb open to completely
drain the spa. Close the hose bibb.
4. Remove the filter cartridges, clean them, and store
them dry.
5. Keep water and debris out by covering with a rigid spa
cover.
6. Before using the spa again, review the Operating Instructions.
Factory Installed Redwood Skirt
Your Quantum Plus spa is supplied with a factory-installed
redwood skirt which completely surrounds the spa.
The door can be opened for routine maintenance,
setting the
timer, and for testing the ELCB before use.
The skirt is made of kiln-dried redwood and can be left
natural to weather, or you may choose to apply a stain or
clear finish. Consult your local paint dealer for the appropriate product. NOTE: WE RECOMMEND A WATER BASED
MATERIAL. OIL OR SOLVENT BASED FINISHING MATERIALS DEGRADE THE SKIRT BACKING MATERIAL.
It may become necessary to remove one or more of the
skirt panels for major service access, but all the panels
must be securely in place during use of the spa.
To detach any of the panels, first remove all screws from
www.clearcreekspas.com

CAUTION: Not winterizing will cause irreversible
dam- age (at freezing temperatures) to the pump
and/or plumbing lines.
Note: If the spa is to be used during winter in a cold
climate, see warm climate instructions below.
In a warm climate where there are occasional
freezing temperatures, follow this procedure:
1. Select the HTR/FILTER mode.
2. Set the thermostat to its minimum temperature 7° to
10°C (45° to 50°F) by turning the dial all the
way counterclockwise.

Cleaning Your Spa
SHELL
Your Quantum Plus spa shell consists of two layers of
plastic materials. Its smooth top surface of acrylic is tough
and durable and contains concentrated color. This is
supported by a substantial thickness of fiberglass-reinforced polyester resin. A catalyst causes a chemical reaction during manufacture that bonds these layers permanently into a hard, strong material. With a minimum amount
of care and cleaning, your whirlpool spa will look new for
years.
To clean your spa, simply use a mild non-abrasive liquid
detergent, isopropyl alcohol, or commercially prepared spa
cleaner. Do not use abrasive cleaners. You can protect
and restore the gloss to a dulled surface by applying a
plastic polish specifically designed for use on acrylic finishes (methylmethacrylate). If an acrylic polish is not
available, an automotive paste wax will do.
Use a spa cleaner for residue buildup at the water level
of the spa surface. This may be applied to the acrylic
surface with a soft cloth and wiped clean. Use sparingly in
small amounts to avoid contaminating the spa water. If
heavily soiled, it may be advisable to lower the water level
2 to 3 inches before cleaning; then refill to normal level.
Repairs to the Acrylic
Minor scratches which do not penetrate the color finish
(acrylic) can be removed with 600-grit wet/dry sandpaper.
Restore the glossy finish with an acrylic polish or a comparable automotive paste wax.
Major scratches or gouges which penetrate the acrylic
surface will require refinishing. Ask your Jacuzzi Whirlpool
Bath dealer for special instructions.

Alternate Use of Water Rainbow Spout as Fill Spout
You can use your Water Rainbow spout as a fill spout by permanently plumbing it to a fresh water supply if
local codes permit. Local plumbing codes may require the use of an anti-siphon valve for such a connection.
Do not interconnect water supply with recirculating system of the spa.
To make the connections necessary to use the Water Rainbow as a fill spout, follow this procedure:
• Make sure spa is unplugged and completely drained.
• Unscrew the spout from the 3/4" pipe.
• Cut 3/4" piping as shown in illustration below.
• Cap off the piping by cementing a 3/4" PVC cap where cut has been made.
• Connect permanent plumbing line to the spout.
