Important Safety Instructions
When installing and using this electrical equipment,
always follow basic safety precautions. Following these
instructions will help make your first spa session a
pleasurable one.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
NOTE: A licensed electrician may be required to upgrade
your standard receptacle and/or circuit breaker.
DANGER -- RISK OF ACCIDENTAL DROWNING:
Do not allow children to be in or around a spa unless
a responsible adult supervises them. Keep the spa
cover on and locked when not in use. See instructions
enclosed with your cover for locking procedures.
DANGER -- RISK OF INJURY: The suction fittings
in this spa are sized to match the specific water flow
created by the pump. Should the need arise to replace
the suction fittings, or the pump, be sure the flow rates
are compatible.
DANGER -- RISK OF INJURY: Never operate the
spa if the suction fitting or filter baskets are broken or
missing.
DANGER -- RISK OF INJURY: Never replace a suction
fitting with one that is rated less than the flow rate marked
on the original suction fitting.
High water temperatures have a high potential for
causing fetal damage during pregnancy. Women who
are pregnant, or who think they are pregnant, should
always check with their physician prior to spa usage.
The use of alcohol, drugs or medication before or
during spa use may lead to unconsciousness, with the
possibility of drowning.
Persons suffering from obesity, a medical history of heart
disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system
problems or diabetes should consult a physician before
using the spa.
Persons using medications should consult a physician
before using the spa since some medications may
induce drowsiness while others may affect heart rate,
blood pressure and circulation.
Hyperthermia Danger
Prolonged exposure to hot air or water can induce
hyperthermia. Hyperthermia occurs when the internal
temperature of the body reaches a level 3˚F to 6˚F
above the normal body temperature of 98.6˚F (or 2˚C to
4˚C above 37˚C). While hyperthermia has many health
benefits, it is important not to allow your body’s core
temperature to rise above 103˚F (39.5˚C). Symptoms
of excessive hyperthermia include dizziness, lethargy,
drowsiness and fainting. The effects of excessive
hyperthermia may include:
•
Failure to perceive heat
•
Failure to recognize the need to exit spa or hot tub
DANGER -- RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK: Install the
spa at least 5 feet (1.5 meters) from all metal surfaces.
As an alternative, a spa may be installed within 5 feet
of metal surfaces if each metal surface is permanently
bonded by a minimum #8 AWG solid copper conductor
to the outside of the spa’s control box.
•
Unawareness of impending hazard
•
Fetal damage in pregnant women
•
Physical inability to exit the spa
•
Unconsciousness
DANGER -- RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK: Do not
permit any external electrical appliances, such as lights,
telephones, radios, televisions, and etc., within five feet
(1.5 meters) of the spa. Never attempt to operate any
electrical device from inside the spa. This does not
apply to lights, stereos and televisions that are built into
the spa as factory options from Cal Spas™.
WARNING: The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication
can greatly increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia.
WARNING -- RISK OF INJURY
The spa water should never exceed 104˚F (40˚C). Water
temperatures between 100˚F (38˚C) and 104˚F (40˚C)
are considered safe for a healthy adult. Lower water
temperatures are recommended for young children and
when spa use exceeds 10 minutes.

Basic Spa Information
The following operating and maintenance instructions
are very important and must be followed carefully. With
the proper care and maintenance, your spa will provide
you with years of satisfaction and performance.
Do not be afraid to push buttons or turn knobs to learn
about your new spa, as it is built with quality materials
and excellent craftsmanship.
Your new spa has been engineered with a high-powered
water pump that pushes water through various therapy
Page 1
Read This First!
jets, which will relax even the tightest muscles. In addition
to the water pressure, you can add air into the spa water
with air venturi handles located seat-side that increase
the intensity of your massage.
The filtering of this spa is very important. It will minimize
cleaning time and the amount of chemicals needed
to keep your spa water balanced. The two daily preprogrammed filter cycles of two hours in duration can be
increased to six hour cycles if the need arises. This can
be accomplished through the topside control panel.
IMPORTANT: Keep the spa covered when not in use!
•
Covered spas use less electricity while maintaining
a set temperature.
•
Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish from
the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
•
You are required to keep the spa covered to maintain
warranty coverage.
•
Covering your spa helps prevent children from
drowning in the spa.
Your new spa comes equipped with an electric heater.
Following the directions listed below will ensure the most
efficient operation:
NOTE: This method is only for spa usage under two
hours a week.
•
•
Keep the spa’s operating temperature 5˚F below the
desired usage temperature when not in use. One
or two hours before use, set the temperature to the
desired temperature.
•
The air venturis should be used sparingly. When
open, water temperature drops quite rapidly and can
also dissipate chemicals.
Allowing the water temperature to lower more than 10˚F
below the desired usage temperature and reheating it
prior to usage will cause the heater to operate longer than
it normally would maintaining the desired temperature.
Doing this will increase your operating cost and makes
your heater work more than necessary.
The filter needs to be cleaned or changed on a regular
basis. This process takes only a few minutes and
the result is increased water clarity and equipment
longevity.
Water level is very important to the operation of your
spa. If the water level is too low or too high, your spa will
not operate properly. The water level should be to the
middle of the skimmer area when the spa is not being
used.
We recommend that your spa water be changed every
4 to 6 months. You may find the need to change your
spa water more frequently with heavy use. When empty,
your spa should be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner,
such as Cal Spas™ All Surface Cleaner, and then rinsed
thoroughly.
See the section “Cleaning and Maintaining Your Spa” for
instructions on draining your spa.
When filling your spa, always fill through the skimmer
filter canister. Use only regular tap water.
WARNING: DO NOT USE SOFT WATER.
If the spa usage exceeds two hours a week, the set
temperature should remain at the desired usage
temperature.

Preparing for Your New Portable Spa
Preparing for Your New Portable Spa
Most cities and counties require permits for exterior construction and electrical circuits. In addition, some
communities have codes requiring residential barriers such as fencing and/or self-closing gates on property to
prevent unsupervised access to the property by children. Your dealer can provide information on which permits may
be required and how to obtain them prior to the delivery of your spa.
Planning the Best Location
where the bathers can clean their feet before entering
your spa.
Here are some of the things that you will need to consider
when determining where to place your new spa.
Allow for Service Access
Safety First
Do not place your spa within 10 feet (3 m) of overhead
power lines.
Consider How You Will Use Your Spa
How you intend to use your spa will help you determine
where you should position it. For example, will you use
your spa for recreational or therapeutic purposes? If
your spa is mainly used for family recreation, be sure to
leave plenty of room around it for activity. If you will use
it for relaxation and therapy, you will probably want to
create a specific mood around it.
Plan for Your Environment
If you live in a region where it snows in the winter or
rains frequently, place the spa near a house entry. By
doing this, you will have a place to change clothes and
not be uncomfortable.
Consider Your Privacy
In a cold-weather climate, bare trees won’t provide
much privacy. Think of your spa’s surroundings during
all seasons to determine your best privacy options.
Consider the view of your neighbors as well when you
plan the location of your spa.
Provide a View with Your Spa
Think about the direction you will be facing when sitting
in your spa. Do you have a special landscaped area in
your yard that you find enjoyable? Perhaps there is an
area that catches a soothing breeze during the day or a
lovely sunset in the evening.
Keep Your Spa Clean
In planning your spa’s location, consider a location
where the path to and from the house can be kept clean
and free of debris.
Many people choose to install a decorative structure
around their spa. If you are installing your spa with any
type of structure on the outside, such as a gazebo,
remember to allow access for service. It is always best
to design special installations so that the spa can still be
moved, or lifted off the ground.
Preparing a Good Foundation
Your spa needs a solid and level foundation. The area
that it sits on must be able to support the weight of the
spa and the occupants who use it. If the foundation
is inadequate, it may shift or settle after the spa is in
place, causing stress that could damage your spa shell
or finish.
Damage caused by inadequate or improper foundation
support is not covered by the warranty. It is the
responsibility of the spa owner to provide a proper
foundation for the spa. We strongly recommended that
you have a qualified, licensed contractor prepare the
foundation for your spa.
Place the spa on a level foundation (preferably a 4”
concrete slab). If you are installing the spa indoors, pay
close attention to the flooring beneath it. Choose flooring
that will not be damaged or stained.
If you are installing your spa on an elevated wood deck
or other structure, consult a structural engineer or a
contractor to ensure the structure will support the weight
of 150 pounds per square foot.
Your Cal Spas™ retailer can help you with your foundation
and more. Your retailer has a wealth of information and
experience about how to get the most out of your spa
and can provide you with a full line of accessories that
are designed to complement your spa and increase your
enjoyment.
Prevent dirt and contaminants from being tracked into
your spa by placing a foot mat at the spa’s entrance

120 Volt Electrical Installation
240 Volt Electrical Installation
Always follow applicable local, state and federal codes
and guidelines.
All 240V spas must be permanently connected
(hardwired) to the power supply. These instructions
describe the only acceptable electrical wiring procedure.
Spas wired in any other way will void your warranty and
may result in serious injury.
Use only a dedicated electrical line with a 20 amp
breaker.
Cord-and-plug connections may not use a cord longer
than 15 feet (4.6 m) and must be plugged into a dedicated
20 amp GFCI connection (NEC 680.42(A)(2)). Do not
use extension cords!
Always use a weatherproof-covered receptacle.
Receptacle shall be located not less than 5 feet (1.5 m)
from and not exceeding 10 feet (3.0 m) from the inside
wall of the spa. (NEC 680.43(A))
Do not bury the power cord. If your cord becomes
damaged, replace it before next usage.
All 120V spas must have a GFCI. This can be either a 20
amp GFCI receptacle or a 20 amp GFCI cord and plug
kit as shown (CKIT110 - P/N ELE09700086).
Test the GFCI plug prior to first use and periodically when
the spa is powered. To test the GFCI plug version, follow
these instructions. (Spa should already be plugged in
and operational.)
1. Press the TEST button on the GFCI. The GFCI will
trip and the spa will stop operating.
2. Press the RESET button on the GFCI. The GFCI will
reset and the spa will turn back on.
The spa is now safe to use.
If the GFCI trips while the spa is in use, press the RESET
button. If the GFCI does not reset, unplug the spa and
call your local Cal Spas dealer for service. DO NOT USE
THE SPA!
This is the only acceptable electrical wiring procedure.
Spas wired in any other way will void your warranty. See
the wiring diagram on page 7.
When installed in the United States, the electrical wiring
of this spa must meet the requirements of National
Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-2008 and any applicable
local, state, and federal codes. The electrical circuit must
be installed by an electrical contractor and approved by
a local building / electrical inspector.
GFCI and Wiring Requirements
The power supplied to the spa must be on a dedicated
GFCI protected circuit as required by ANSI/NFPA 70
with no other appliances or lights sharing the power.
Use copper wire with THHN insulation. Do not use
aluminum wire.
Use the table on the next page to determine your GFCI
and wiring requirements.
When NEC requires the use of wires larger than #6
AWG, install a junction box near the spa and use #6
AWG wire between the junction box and the spa.
Wire runs over 85 feet must increase wire gauge to the
next lower number. For example: A normal 50 amp GFCI
with four #8 AWG Copper wires run over 85 feet would
require you to go to four #6 AWG copper wires.
Read and follow the heater manufacturer’s safety and
installation instructions prior to installation and operation.
Incorrect installation may damage the heater and void
its warranty.
Testing the GFCI Breaker
Test the GFCI breaker prior to first use and periodically
when the spa is powered. To test the GFCI breaker
follow these instructions (spa should be operating):
1. Press the TEST button on the GFCI. The GFCI will
trip and the spa will shut off.
2. Reset the GFCI breaker by switching the breaker
to the full OFF position, wait a moment, then turn
the breaker back on. The spa should have power
again.

Configuring the 6300 Control System
The 6300 control system requires higher power than other 240V systems. Dip switch #10 is factory set in the ON
position. This causes the heater to shut off when any pump is running in high speed. To allow the heater to continue
operating, dip switch #10 must be set to the OFF position.
To ensure your spa functions properly,
ensure the following steps are
performed before starting your spa:
•
When installing the electrical
system, use a 60 amp GFCI.
Follow the GFCI wiring diagram on
the next page.
•
Have your dealer or installer set
dip switch #10 to the OFF position
on the circuit board as shown at
right.
Electrical Installation for 11 kW Heater
This applies to Ultimate Fitness spas with the 11 kW heater only.
Two electrical services are required to heat the swim side of the
Fitness Spa.

Gas Heater Hook up
Ultimate Fitness Series spa owners may buy and install a separate gas heater and pump for use with their spa. This
option may be purchased separately from your local distributor.
Spa owners are responsible for ensuring installation of their gas heater conforms to local, state, and federal
regulations. The electrical and gas installation must be performed by contractors and approved by a local building /
electrical inspector. Failure to do so may void your warranty.
All Ultimate Fitness Series spas are plumbed with a gas heater ready union located inside the cabinet at either the
front or rear, depending on the model. (See the figures below and at right.) Properly installed, they can be attached
to an external gas heater. Customers are responsible for creating openings in the panel to accommodate the lines
and wiring. The gas heater should be located not less than 10 feet and no more than 25 feet away from the spa.
To connect the plumbing for an external gas heater:
1. Disconnect the ready union.
2. Cut off both sides of the union and discard it.
3. Create two 2½” diameter holes through the spa panel.
4. Use two 2” couplings to connect the hoses to 10’ - 15’ 2-3/8” diameter PVC lines.
5. Connect PVC lines to the gas heater.

Filling and Powering Up Your Portable Spa
Never fill your spa with soft water.
Soft water makes it impossible to maintain the proper water chemistry and may cause the water to
foam, which will ultimately harm the finish of the spa and void your warranty.
1. Once the spa has been placed on an approved
surface and has been correctly wired by a licensed
electrician, inspect all plumbing connections in the
equipment area of your spa. Ensure that these
connections are secure and that they did not loosen
during shipment.
2. If equipped, open all gate valves in the equipment
area. Before operating the spa, these valves must
be in the up or “open” position.
5. Presoak the filters in spa water.
VERY IMPORTANT!
You must presoak the filters before
inserting them in the filter canister. Dry
filters can allow air into the filtration
system which can cause pump failure.
VERY IMPORTANT!
6. (For owners of the automatic bromine generator)
Make sure the dial on the face of the bromine
generator unit is turned to the OFF position.
Never run the spa with the gate valves
closed or without water circulating for
long periods of time. Be careful not to
over-tighten the plumbing fittings.
7. Once the water is at the correct level and air is bled,
turn on the power at the GFCI breaker. (Ensure that
the 120V spas are connected to the proper electrical
outlet.)
3. Remove the filter basket and cartridge from filter
canister.
4. Place a garden hose in the skimmer/filter canister
and fill your spa with regular tap water to the proper
water level (halfway up the skimmer area).
VERY IMPORTANT!
Always fill the spa through the filter
canister! Failure to do so may cause
air to be trapped in the filtration system
and prevent the pumps from operating
properly.
Note: Depending on the model, when the power
is turned on to the spa, the controls will perform a
diagnostic check for approximately five minutes.
When the diagnostic is complete, the spa will
automatically operate at filter speed and continue
heating until the spa water temperature reaches the
default temperature of 100˚F.
8. If no water is flowing when the pump is running,
there could be an air pocket at the suction side of
the pump. Shut off power to the spa and loosen the
pump union on the suction side of the pump to bleed
the air. When air is bled, turn power back on.
9. Install the pre-soaked filters and the filter basket into
the filter canister.
The spa is now ready for use.

the cycle to last for 2 hours but this can be switched to
4, 6, or 8 hours depending on your requirements. To
set filtration time, turn off the power to the spa at the
time of day you would like one of the filtration cycles to
begin then turn back on after 30 seconds. When power
has been restored, press the Temp button then the Jets
button. Press Temp button again to change the filtering
cycle duration. When desired duration is selected press
the Jets button to exit.
At the beginning of each filtering cycle the Turbo system
will run for approximately 30 seconds. The low speed
pump will run for the duration of the filtering cycle and if
an Ozone system is installed it will be activated. During
filtering, FC will appear on the main display.

9800 Electronic Control Operation
When first powered up, the 9800 electronic
system will perform a self-diagnostic check
and then it will automatically heat to and
maintain a temperature of 100°F (37.5°C)
until you change the set temperature as
listed in the “Temperature Adjustment”
section below.
These instructions will describe features and
options that your particular spa may not be
equipped with.
Initial Start-up
When your spa is first powered up, it displays some
configuration codes and then goes into priming mode
(Pr will appear on the display panel). This mode lasts up
to four minutes and then the spa begins to heat to its pre
-programmed temperature of 100°F.
Standard Mode: This is programmed to maintain the
desired temperature. Note that the last measured spa
temperature displayed is current only when the pump
has been running for at least two minutes. The “STAND”
icon will display until the mode is changed.
Temperature Adjustment
Economy Mode: Economy mode heats the spa to the
set temperature only during filter cycles. The “ECON”
icon will display until the mode is changed. Pressing the
“JETS 1” button while in economy mode puts the spa in
standard-in-economy mode, which operates the same
as standard mode but reverts back to economy mode
automatically after one hour. During this time, pressing
the “MODE/PROG” button will revert to economy mode
immediately.
(Range 80°F to 104°F, 26°C to 40°C)
The start-up temperature is set at 100°F (37.5°C). The
last measured temperature is constantly displayed
on the control panel. Note that the last measured spa
temperature is displayed. The displayed temperature
will be updated when the pump has been running for at
least two minutes.
Press the “UP” or “DOWN” buttons once to display the
set temperature. Each time either button is pressed
again, the set temperature will increase or decrease
depending on which button is pressed. After three
seconds, the control panel will automatically display the
last measured spa temperature.
Time
When time hasn’t been programmed, the “TIME” icon
flashes. To set the time, press the “TIME” button and
then the “MODE/PROG” button. Use the “UP” and
“DOWN” buttons to adjust time. See the next page for
more detailed instructions.
Standard, Economy, Sleep, and Standby
Modes
Mode/Prog: This button is used to switch between
standard, economy, and sleep modes.
1. Press “MODE/PROG” to enter mode programming.
Sleep Mode: Sleep mode heats the spa to within 20°F
(11°C) of the set temperature only during filter cycles. The
“SLEEP” icon will display until the mode is changed.
Standby Mode: Pressing “Warm” or “Cool” then “JETS
2” will turn off all spa functions temporarily. This is helpful
when changing a filter. Pressing any button resets the
spa.
Jets 1
Press the “JETS 1” button once to turn pump 1 on or off
and to shift between low and high speeds if equipped.
If left running, the low speed turns off after two hours
and the high speed turns off after 15 minutes. On noncirculation systems, the low speed of pump 1 runs when
the blower or any other pump is on. It may also activate
for at least two minutes every 30 minutes to detect the
spa temperature and then to heat to the set temperature if
needed, depending upon the mode. When the low speed
turns on automatically, it cannot be deactivated from the
panel; however, the high speed may be started.
2. Press the “DOWN” button to cycle through to the
desired mode.
3. Press “MODE/PROG” to confirm selection.

Jets 2
Preset Filter Cycles
Press the “JETS 2” button once to turn pump 2 on or off
and to shift between low and high speeds if it is a twospeed pump. If left running, the pump will turn off after
15 minutes.
There are two filter cycles per day. The start and end
times of each cycle are programmable. To program, set
the time as instructed above, then press “MODE/PROG”
to advance to the next setting (or to exit after the last
setting). The default filter cycles are as follows:
Option
•
The first filter cycle is automatically activated at 8:00
AM and operates the pump until 10:00 AM. The
“FILTER 1” indicator icon will light when filter 1 is
running.
•
The second filter cycle is automatically activated at
8:00 PM and operates the pump until 10:00 PM. The
“FILTER 2” indicator icon will light when filter 2 is
running.
This is an optional feature. Press the “OPTION” button
to turn the optional equipment on and off. If left on, the
equipment will automatically turn off after 15 minutes.
Light
Press the “LIGHT” button to turn the spa light on and
off and to shift between dim and bright settings if your
light is dimmable. On dim, the control panel will show the
center circle plus one quarter of the light beams. Half of
the light beams will show on medium brightness, and all
of the light beams will show on bright.
Invert
Press the “INVERT” button to change the numbers in the
display to read upside down. Another press returns the
display to the right-side-up position. This enables you to
read the display while you are in the spa.
The pump and the ozone generator will run during
filtration. At the start of each filter cycle, the blower will
run on highest speed for 30 seconds to clean out the
air channels. The lowest speed of pump 2 and pump
3 will run for five minutes. In the event of power loss or
shut down, the time of day will need to be reset for filter
cycles to run according to your desired programming.
Clean up Cycle
To lock the panel:
When the pump or blower is turned on by a button press,
a clean-up cycle begins 30 minutes after the pump or
blower is turned off or times out. The pump and the
ozone generator will run for one hour.
•

Circulation Pump
This is an optional feature. The circulation pump will
come on when the system is checking temperature,
during filter cycles, during freeze conditions, or when
another pump is on.
2008 Portable Spa Owner’s Manual
LTR20081000, Rev. E
This is an optional feature. On most systems, the ozone
generator (if installed) runs during filter cycles (except
when pump 1 is operating at high speed on a non-circ
ulating system) and during clean-up cycles. On some
systems, the ozone generator operates whenever the
pump runs. If your system is configured with the optional
ozone disable feature, the ozone generator will turn off
for one hour any time a function button (“JETS 1”, “JETS
2”, “OPTION” etc.) is pressed.
Freeze Protection
If the temperature sensors detect a drop to 44°F within
the heater, the pump automatically activates to provide
freeze protection. The equipment stays on until four
minutes after the sensors detect that the spa temperature
has risen to 45°F or higher. In colder climates, an optional
additional freeze sensor may be added to protect against
freeze conditions that may not be sensed by the standard
sensors. Auxiliary freeze sensor protection acts similarly
except with the temperature thresholds determined by
the switch and without a four-minute delay in turnoff.

Adjustable Jets
Diverter Knobs
Almost all of the jets in your spa are adjustable.
Rotating the face of an adjustable jet to the left (counterclockwise) will decrease the amount of water flow
through the jet. Rotating the face of an adjustable jet to
the right (clockwise) will increase the amount of water
flow through the jet. (See example shown below.)
Diverter knobs are 1” and 2” knobs located around the
top of your spa. They allow you to divert water through
jets from one side of the spa to the other, or in most
cases from floor jets to wall jets. This is accomplished by
rotating the diverter
knob to the left
(counterclockwise),
decreasing
the
amount of water
flow through a
section of jets.
To increase the
amount of water
flow through the
other section of jets,
rotate the handle to
the right (clockwise).
Neck jets adjust in the opposite directions (counterclockwise to increase, clockwise to decrease).
Air Venturis
Air venturis are the 1” knobs located around the top of
your spa. Each one will let you add a mixture of air with
the jet pressure. This is accomplished by rotating the
air venturi knob to the
left (counterclockwise) to
increase the amount of
airflow through the jets.
To decrease the amount
of airflow through the
jets, rotate the handle to
the right (clockwise).

Water Quality Maintenance
Water Quality Maintenance
Cal Spas Clear Water Plan
Great spa water is easily achieved when the right
chemicals and / or systems are used and the Cal Spas
Clear Water Plan is implemented. The key to clean,
clear, and safe water is to fully understand how spa water
reacts to users, system operation and chemical use. The
Clear Water Plan will help give you that understanding.
The first thing to understand about taking care of your
spa water is that preventive actions are much easier to
do than correcting water quality issues. For this reason,
we offer the Clear Water Plan as a simple, easy to follow
guide to clean, safe spa water.
Follow the Right Plan
You will need to decide which chemical plan or alternative
sanitation option works best for your spa water. Consult
your Cal Spas dealer for the right decision with regards
to your lifestyle and spa usage. Whichever plan you
decide on, follow it completely and don’t take shortcuts.
These plans will provide you with clean, safe, clear spa
water with a minimum of effort.
Before You Begin
Before you begin a Clear Water Plan, you should
understand that chemicals or systems alone will not take
care of your spa water. Other factors such as Filtration
and Bather Load also play an important part.
Filtration
The filter is the part of your spa that removes the debris
from the water. Even though Cal Spas uses the advanced
Bio Clean filter cartridge that protects itself from bacterial
growth, the filter still needs to be cleaned on a regular
basis to maximize your spa’s filtering performance and
heating efficiency.
In addition to spraying off the filter weekly to remove
surface debris, your filter should be deep cleaned
periodically to dissolve scale and other contaminants
that get lodged deep within the filter fibers and impede
the filtration process. Even if the filter looks clean, the
contaminants can clog the fibers and prevent water from
flowing through the filter resulting in the most common
spa problem—no heat, caused by a dirty filter.
Filter Cleaning
•
Traditional Chemical Options
Choose from either Bromine tablets or Chlorinating
granules as your sanitizer of choice. Both work well when
the appropriate Clear Water Plan is followed. Make sure
you follow all instructions and use only Cal Spas brand
chemicals.
Alternative Sanitation Options
Cal Zone Quest 2000 / 3000 Ozonator
This system automatically generates ozone gas and
injects it into the spa water. Ozone gas is far superior
to chemical bromine or chlorine in sanitizing spa water.
Saves replacement chemical cost and guards against
forgetting to add chemicals.
Cal Clarity Automatic Bromine Generator
This system automatically generates and releases
free bromine into the spa water. No more need to add
chemical bromine tablets or chlorine granules. Saves
replacement chemical cost and circumvents the need to
add chemicals on a regular basis.
2008 Portable Spa Owner’s Manual
LTR20081000, Rev. E
Place the dirty filter into a bucket of water deep
enough to cover the filter. Add 8 oz of Cal Spas
“Liquid Filter Cleaner” to the bucket of water.
Note: It is a good idea to keep a spare filter to be deep
cleaned while the regular filter is in the spa. This way,
you can rotate the filters and both will last longer.
•
Soak the filter for a minimum of 24 hours.
•
Remove the filter and spray clean with a water hose.
Spray each pleat carefully.
•
Allow filter to dry completely (a minimum of 2 days
drying time is recommended).
•
Reinstall filter as described in the Clear Water Plan.
Filtration Cycles
The filtration cycle of your spa is the process that allows
the water to flow through the filter. Your spa will filter
automatically twice each day. The factory set default time
for filtration is usually enough for normal use, however
heavy bather load or frequent use may require longer
filtration times or more frequent filtration cycles to keep
the spa water clean. Consult your Owner’s Manual for
setting your spa’s filtration times.
Page 21
Water Quality Maintenance
Bather Load
“Bather Load” is the term used to describe the number of
people using a spa, combined with the length of usage,
and the frequency of usage. All these factors have a
great effect on the spa water. The higher the bather
load, the more chemicals need to be added and a longer
filtration time will be needed.
All versions of the Cal Spas Clear Water Plan are
designed for spas with average bather load. (3-4 people,
15 minutes of usage, 3 times a week at 100 degrees)
If your bather load exceeds these guidelines, and you
experience water quality problems, increase the amount
of filtration first, (go to the next higher filtration number)
then if water quality is still not adequate, consult the
advice of your Cal Spas dealer for additional chemical
or system recommendations. Be sure to give them your
bather load information.
Chemical Overview
The following information is intended for use with Cal
Spas chemicals only. Other brands of chemicals may
have similar names and/or usage descriptions but due
to manufacturing differences, use of other chemicals
can increase the likelihood of under- or over-dosing the
spa chemicals. Damage to the spa or spa’s components
from improper chemicals or chemical usage is not
covered under the spa’s warranty.
Chemical Safety
Failure to follow chemical directions may result in serious
injury, sickness, or even death.
Read and follow all printed instructions listed on bottles,
packages and in your owner’s manual.
Do not exceed chemical dosages as recommended
in the Clear Water Plan, or on chemical bottles and
packages. (Most chemical instructions are figured for a
500 gallon spa however, most spas hold less than 500
gallons, consult your owner’s manual for the approximate
gallons of your spa)
Never mix chemicals together.
Never change chemical brands or types without
completely draining, flushing and thoroughly cleaning
the spa and cover first.
Always protect your eyes while introducing chemicals
into the spa. Wear protective eyeglasses to prevent
powdered chemicals from blowing into the eyes or liquid
chemicals from splashing into the eyes.
In the event of overdosing a sanitizing chemical (chorine
or bromine), immediately turn off the power to the spa
and drain water to a safe and approved area. Refill with
fresh water and proceed with the Clear Water Plan start
up.
Physical Chemical Hazards
Do not allow chemicals to come in contact with skin,
eyes or clothing.
Always wear rubber gloves, protective eye wear and
clothing to reduce the risk of chemical contact and
irritation.
Remove and wash clothing that may have been exposed
to chemical contact prior to wearing them again.
Inhaling or ingesting chemicals will cause serious injury,
sickness, or even death.
Do not mix chemicals. Mixing chemicals together can
cause dangerous chemical reactions including the
release of toxic gas, fire and explosions.
Chemical Storage
Chemicals must be stored completely out of the reach
of children in an area that is well vented, cool, and dry.
Failure to provide a proper area for chemical storage
may result in serious injury, sickness, fire explosion
and even death. Do not store your chemicals inside the
equipment area of your spa.

Traditional Chemical Start Up
Bromine Clear Water Plan
Prior to filling a spa for the first time, or after a routine
draining, you will want to follow this start-up plan to
extend water life and performance. If you are following
either the Bromine or Chlorine Clear Water Plans, you
will notice that both start-up processes are the same with
the exception of Step 7. As with all chemical dosages
listed in these Clear Water Plans, start-up dosages are
intended for 500-gallon spas. Please adjust the chemical
dosages to the capacity of your particular spa.
This plan and its chemical dosages are intended for Cal
Spas chemicals only. Most chemical manufacturers use
different chemical formulas and strengths. Only Cal spas
chemicals are specially formulated to provide chemical
balance at lower dosages. Always read and follow printed
instructions on chemical bottles and packages.

Bromine Generator Clear Water Plan
This plan and its chemical dosages are intended for spas equipped with the optional Cal Clarity Automatic Bromine
Generator. The chemical references are designed for Cal Spas chemicals only. Note: Following these instructions
is very important to ensure proper operation of your Cal Clarity Automatic Bromine Generator.
Start Up
1. Clean surface of spa with Cal Spas “MultiPurpose Cleaner”.
2. Apply a protective coat of Cal Spas “Fast
Sheen” to the acrylic surface.
3. Fill spa to proper water level with normal
tap water. (Do not use soft water.)
4. Use bromine test strip and balance the spa
water:
•
Adjust total alkalinity (acceptable range
is 80 to 120 ppm),
•
Adjust pH if necessary (between 7.2 to
7.8).
5. Pour in 16 oz of Cal Spas “Metal Protector”
in the center of spa.
6. Test for TDS (total dissolved solids).
•
The ideal range is 50 to 300 ppm.
•
TDS must be less than 500 ppm to start with.
7. Phosphate level should be below 200 ppb. Remove phosphates if necessary.
8. Determine the gallon capacity of the spa. Be accurate, because this determines the amount of TRU BLU that
will be added. Consult the Cal Spas Pre-delivery Guide for spa gallons.
9. Power up the spa and make sure all the spa’s pumps are set to high speed. Turn the dial on the face of the Cal
Clarity Bromine Generator to OFF.
10. Sprinkle evenly over the surface of the spa one 2lb bottle of TRU BLU sodium bromide per 100 US gallons (370
liters) of water. Do not add too much!
Note: Each bottle of TRU BLU will raise TDS / conductivity amount approximately 500 ppm.
11. Allow spa to run for 15 minutes so the TRU BLU can dissolve completely before proceeding to the next step.
2008 Portable Spa Owner’s Manual
LTR20081000, Rev. E
Page 27
Water Quality Maintenance
12. Use sodium bromide test strips (not bromine) and
adjust sodium bromide level to 7.4 to 8.2 (equates
to 1700 to 2500 ppm TDS level).
13. Add 2 oz of Cal Spas “Oxidizer Shock” to help burn
out impurities in fill water.
14. Turn the dial on the bromine generator clockwise
until the LED display reads 10.
15. This will initiate the build up of a bromine bank.
16. Set the filtration cycle to “continuous” (F-C) for the
first 24 hours.
3. Once the desired level has been achieved, turn the
dial down until a maintenance setting is achieved.
4. The common maintenance setting for an average
bather load is #4.
When changing the setting, use bromine test strips to
determine when you have reached the level you want.
Once a Week
1. Test spa water with bromine test strip.
2. Based on test strip readings:
17. Put the cover on and allow the spa to heat to desired
temperature.
•
Adjust alkalinity if necessary.
•
Adjust pH if necessary.
Adjusting The Proper Bromine Levels
•
Increase / decrease bromine production with
dial if required.
1. After start up, decrease the filtration cycle to F-4
and monitor the bromine level until it is within the
recommended range.
2. Use bromine test strips to achieve a 3-5 ppm
recommended level.
Note: It can take several days for the bromine level to
stabilize because the fill water that was used sometimes
contains contaminants that need to be neutralized,
thereby using up the initial bromine that is generated.
Maintenance Schedule
Regardless of which Clear Water Plan you are using,
you should also do the following:
Every Month
1. Deep clean your spa’s filter. (Follow filter cleaning
instruction at beginning of Clear Water Plan)
2. Check inside the equipment area for leaks, rodents,

Removing and Reseating the Pillows
You can remove the pillows for cleaning and maintenance quickly and easily. This method works for all types of
pillows.
Grab the lower edge of the pillow with both hands firmly and pull up. As you do this, the pillow inserts will pop out
of the holes.
Reseat the pillows by aligning the pillow inserts with the holes and striking the pillow hard enough to insert the pegs
back into the holes.
Spa Cover
Important! Keep the spa covered when not in use!
•
Covered spas will use less electricity in maintaining
your set temperature.
•
Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish from
the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
•
You are required to keep the spa covered to maintain
warranty coverage.
•
Covering your spa helps prevent children from
drowning in the spa.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Draining Your Portable Spa
Your spa should be drained every four to six months, and refilled
with fresh tap water. The following is the recommended method
for draining your spa.
1. Turn off the power at the breaker.
2. Remove all filters.
If your drain valve is mounted on the side of the spa cabinet as
shown at right, proceed to step 5.
If your drain valve is located inside the spa cabinet:
3. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws to the
access panel and open it.
4. Locate hose ending with the 3/4 inch hose-bib fixture.
5. Hook up the female end of a garden hose to the drain fitting.
6. Place the other end of the garden hose where you would like the water to drain to.
7. Twist the hose-bib fixture counterclockwise and pull to open the drain.
8. Let spa drain completely, then remove garden hose.
9. Twist the hose-bib fixture clockwise to close it.
Winterizing (Cold Climate Draining)
In many areas of the country, the temperature drops below 32˚F (0°C). We recommend that you always have your
spa full of water and running at normal spa temperatures (80˚F to 100˚F, 26.7°C to 37.8°C). This will help reduce
the risk of freezing in your spa and your spa’s equipment.
Warning: If you find the need to drain your spa, please be aware of the potential of freezing in your spas
equipment and plumbing. Even if the directions below are followed perfectly, there is no guarantee that
your spa will not suffer freeze damage.
Freeze damage is not covered by your warranty.
1. Open all filter covers.

Cleaning and Maintenance
2. Remove the filter baskets and filters.
All-Purpose Cleaner (Spa Finish cleaning)
3. Drain your spa completely as described in the
instructions above.
Cal Spas™ All-Purpose Cleaner is an
essential part of maintaining your spa’s
finish. Through normal use, the spa’s
finish can accumulate dirt, oil, and calcium
causing a rough feel and unsightly scum
lines. Cal Spas™ All-Purpose Cleaner
is a low detergent, non-abrasive cleaner
specifically formulated to clean the spa
without damaging its acrylic finish.
4. Remove drain plugs from the front of the pumps.
5. Disconnect the unions from both sides of the pump.
6. Use a wet/dry vacuum to blow any remaining water
out of the jets and equipment area.
Cover your spa with a good spa cover and an all-weather
tarp to ensure that neither rain nor snow enters the spa.
Cleaning the Cover, Shell and
Pillows
Due to the constant punishment your spa cover and
pillows receive, you should protect them by applying
Vinyl and Leather Cleaner as part of your monthly
maintenance plan. Cal Spas™ Vinyl and Leather
Cleaner is specifically designed to protect spa covers
and pillows from chemical and ultraviolet light damage. It
accomplishes this without leaving an oily residue behind
that is normally associated with common automotive
vinyl protectants.
Use of Vinyl and Leather Cleaner
Cal Spas™ Vinyl and Leather Cleaner
should be used sparingly. Incorrect
usage may cause water clarity issues.
Spa Covers
1. Remove spa cover from spa.
The most effective solution to minimize
cleaning time is prevention. When the
following steps are followed, the spa’s finish will actually
start to resist most of the elements that cause calcium
build-up and make scum line clean up easier.
Prior to Spa Start-Up and Refilling
1. Spray Cal Spas™ Multi-Purpose Cleaner directly on
to the spa’s finish.
2. Wipe clean with a clean soft cloth.
3. Repeat on heavily calcified areas.
4. Wipe spa thoroughly with a wet sponge, rinsing
often with a bucket of clean water.
5. Allow spa to dry completely.

4. Wipe spa thoroughly with a wet sponge, rinsing
often in a bucket of clean water.
5. Allow the spa to dry completely.
6. Apply a coat of Cal Spas™ Fast Sheen to the spa’s
entire finish with a soft cloth or sponge.
7. Allow Fast Sheen to dry until white and powdery.
8. Buff clean with a soft cloth, rotating frequently.
IMPORTANT: Cal Spas™ Fast Sheen should not be
used on spas full of water. Only apply to clean, cool,
dry surfaces. Incorrect product usage may cause water
clarity issues.
Cleaning and Replacing the
Filter
Filtration
Filtration is one of the most important steps you can
take to ensure clean, clear water. Regardless of what
some people may think, it is far less expensive to fix
water clarity problems by filtering your spa than by using
excessive amounts of chemicals, excessive filtration
times, or by water replacement.
Cal Spas™ filtration system draws contaminated water
through the exclusive Bio-Clean™ filter removing debris
from the water. It then pumps the newly cleaned water
back into the spa through various jets. Spas equipped
with the optional Quest 2000 Ozonator will also receive
ozone injection into the filtered water for further protection
against contaminants during filtration cycles. Filtration
also ensures that chemicals are mixed thoroughly
through the water, increasing performance.
3. Clean the filter with a garden hose as follows:
a. Hold the filter vertically.
b. Spray the filter cartridges with a pressure nozzle,
starting from the top and spraying down each
pleat.
c. Turn the filter cartridge over and repeat Step
3b.
d. Deep clean filter cartridge every month. Use
only a Cal Spas™-approved filter-cleaning
chemical.
Exclusive Bio-Clean™ Filter Cartridge
The filter cartridge is designed to remove dirt, sand,
minerals, phosphates, bather waste and other solids from
the spa. Unfortunately, some spa owners fail to include
filter cleaning as part of their chemical maintenance
plan. Filters accumulate debris and become prime areas
for bacteria growth.
The Cal Spas™ exclusive Bio-Clean™ Filter is the only
antibacterial filter cartridge on the market today. Having
a filter cartridge that prevents bacteria growth is added
protection for those times you forget to clean the filter.
We recommend that you only replace your spa’s filter
cartridge with a Bio-Clean™ filter cartridge for ensured
protection and peace of mind.
Filtration starts on electronically controlled spas as soon
as the pumps are primed and water flow is steady. As

Keeping Fit with your Spa
IMPORTANT: Always consult your physician before starting any exercise activity or program. The Ultimate Fitness
series spas feature rubber exercise bands. When stretched, these bands create a high tension condition. Improper
use or failure to connect the exercise bands properly may cause injury. Always inspect all of the exercise equipment
prior to beginning any exercise. Do not use any damaged equipment
The fitness equipment consists of: two rowing arm bars, two 62” exercise bands, two 32” exercise bands, two 27”
exercise bands, two hand grips, two ankle bands, two hand loops, and an exercise belt. This equipment attaches
to the exercise anchors located on the spa walls.
Ultimate Fitness Series Exercise Program
Refer to the equipment configurations shown on the next page for the following exercises.
Seated Row

feet stable, abs tight and lower back stable. Keep your
palms down, arms extended with elbows slightly bent.

to the middle back and returning slowly to the starting
position.
Standing Chest Fly
Using the exercise grips, place palms sideways facing
your body with your elbows slightly bent. Pull your body
forward, bringing hands together, squeezing and flexing
chest muscles, then slowly returning to the starting
position.

your elbows bent at 90˚. Press forward bringing your
hands together, squeezing and flexing your chest
muscles, then slowly return to the start position.
