www.clearcreekspas.com The Quantum Plus TM Portable Whirlpool Spa Owner's Manual www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 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.

SKIRT PAN PALLET DETAIL BOLT www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com PALLET 4" X 4" X 72" BLOCK 3 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com INSTALLATION 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. www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 4 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 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.

Besides being a beautiful addition to your indoor decor or outdoor landscaping, your Jacuzzi whirlpool spa will provide you with the ultimate in spa pleasure. Basic Control Set-Up The control set-up on your Quantum Plus spa is designed to give you fingertip control of the heater, lights, air induction, Water Rainbow and whirlpool/filter pump and blower systems of your unit from inside or outside your spa. Follow the basic control set-up described below to familiarize yourself with the several functions of the control panels located on the top of the spa. CAUTION Do not turn on power to the spa unless it is filled with water to the normal water level. (See water line indicatormark on skimmer frame.) When the power is on, the built-in timer may activate the system even though the SYSTEM is turned off at the control panel. If the spa’s motor/pump is actuated when there is not sufficient water in the unit, the circulation pump and heater could be irreparably damaged. In addition to damaging the unit, operating the spa with insufficient water could cause a fire. • Using a garden hose, fill the spa with water to the waterline indicator mark on the skimmer frame. (See page 20 for information on using Water Rainbow as a fill spout if desired.) • • • At the house service panel, turn on the circuit breaker or switch that controls the electrical service to your spa. (Make sure there is no other appliance on that circuit.) Open the skirt door giving access to the System Control Module. Your spa is provided with a earth leakage circuit breaker (ELCB). At initial start-up and at least once a month thereafter, with power on, push the button located on the spa System Control Module. The switch should move to the OFF (O) position. Move the switch to the ON (1) position to reset.

HEA TER INDI CAT OR LIG HT 9 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com OPERATION 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. Water Rainbow ™ www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 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. Filtration 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.) 11 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com MAINTENANCE 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 12 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 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. www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 13 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 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 the handle and drain the spa. occupied. In addition, its use will reduce energy consumption. 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. FRONT ACCCESS SKIMME/FILTER SKIMMER BASKET After draining the spa, clean the spa shell, suction strainers, skimmers, and filters; then close the hose bibb and refill the spa with fresh water. Check the pH level and maintain water quality. DOOR WEIR NORMAL WATER LEVEL WATER LEVEL INDICATOR MARK FILTER CARTRIDGE Filter Maintenance The filters should be checked periodically. In normal use, check the filters at least once a month. Keep the filters clean; obstructed filters reduce water quality and inhibit proper system performance. The suction strainers located in the foot well area should be checked at least once a week for collected debris, such as leaves, hair, etc., and cleaned as necessary. It may not be necessary to remove the strainer to clean it, but should you need to, remove the center screw with a Phillips type screwdriver and clean the strainer by flushing with water from a hose. A removable filter cartridge is located inside each skimmer. To remove it, pull open the skimmer door by the handle located in the middle of the door. Slide the basket out; then pull the filter cartridge upward and out of the housing by the loop at the top of the filter. Clean the filter by separating the folds of the filter and spraying with fresh water from a garden hose; then reinstall the cartridge in the A rigid spa cover (available as an option), when in place over the spa, will help reduce evaporation and control the amount of debris entering the spa when the spa is not 14 CAUTION: Be sure to replace the suction strainer immediately after cleaning. It is a safety device and must be in place over the suction fitting to minimize potential hazard of hair and body entrapment. If heavy rains raise the spa water level, drain the spa to its normal level. www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com housing and replace the basket, reversing the above procedure. 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. www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com 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 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. 3. Maintain a chemical balance. (See “Water Quality” section.) 4. Keep the spa covered. FACTORY INSTALLED REDWOOD SKIRT DOUBLE ROW OF STAPLES DENOTES TOP OF SKIRT 15 www.clearcreekspas.com www.clearcreekspas.com MAINTENANCE Spa Light Covering Your Spa Two lenses, one blue and one red, are provided with your spa. To change the lens, simply pull the lens out of the fitting and replace it with the desired colored lens. Two replacement bulbs (GE Model 912, 12W, 12V) are also included. Put them in a safe place for future use. When a bulb burns out, replace it from the back of the light fitting, pulling out the bulb receptacle. An optional rigid spa cover is available to place on top of the spa. Use of this cover will help to minimize heat loss and evaporation, and thus reduce energy costs. The cover is also an attractive and efficient means of preventing debris such as leaves and dirt from entering your spa when not in use. Follow the instructions for use and care provided with the spa cover. CAUTION SPA LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT LOCKING NUT NORMAL LENS COLORED FILTER LIGHT BULB While the spa cover is rigid, it is not designed to support any weight. Therefore, as a safety precaution and to preserve the life of your cover, you must not sit, stand, or lie on it; nor should you place objects of any kind on top of it. Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath does not guarantee or warrent this cover. QUANTUM SPA WITH RIGID INSULATING COVER BULB RECEPTACLE LIGHT BEZEL 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.
