Attention New Hot Tub Owner!
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Sundance® hot tub! The following
is a list of automated functions performed by your hot tub. These functions are
listed below in an attempt to suppress any operational concerns you may have
during the first 24-hours of ownership! Also listed below are important maintenance
recommendations you should observe on a regular basis to protect your new
investment.
Automated Spa Operations
Your new hot tub is equipped with an automated “blow-out” cycle that clears all
plumbing lines daily to promote maximum water sanitation. Each day at 12:00 PM
(noon), pump 2, pump 3 (Maxxus Models Only) and the blower will automatically
turn on for a period of one minute, then go off. Then pump 1 will turn on and run
for one minute to complete the blow-out cycle. Be aware, the factory programmed
blow-out cycle cannot be canceled or altered!
Maintain Healthy Spa Water
Always maintain your hot tub’s water chemistry within the following parameters as
defined by the Association of Pool And Spa Professionals:
pH
7.4-7.6
Free chlorine
3.0-4.0 ppm
Free Bromine
2.0-4.0 ppm
Total Alkalinity
100-120 ppm
Calcium Hardness
150-250 ppm
!
TO deCreASe riSk OF iNFeCTiON Or diSeASe! Always maintain
your spa filter as outlined below to ensure healthy spa water. Refer to pages 53-54
for additional information.
required Filter Maintenance
Your new hot tub is equipped with an advanced MicroClean Ultra™ water filtration
system that provides unsurpassed water quality! To ensure maximum water quality
at all times, you should replace the filter cartridge every six months, or earlier as
necessary. The filter cartridge is designed to be thrown away! Attempts to reuse the
filter cartridge may result in the re-release of unwanted particles back into the hot
tub. See pages 53-54 for detailed filter cartridge replacement instructions.
required Water replacement
! TO deCreASe riSk OF iNFeCTiON Or diSeASe! You should
replace the hot tub’s water every 3 to 6 months. The frequency depends on a
number of variables including frequency of use, number of users, and attention paid
to water quality maintenance. You will know it is time for a change when you cannot
control sudsing and/or you can no longer get the normal feel or sparkle to the water,
even though the key water balance measurements are all within the proper
parameters. See pages 58-59 for additional information.

important Hot Tub Owner information
Your Sundance® hot tub is constructed to the highest standards and
is capable of providing many years of trouble-free use. However,
because heat retentive materials are utilized to insulate the hot tub
for
efficient operation, an uncovered hot tub surface and wall fittings directly
exposed to sunlight and high temperatures for an extended period are
subject to permanent damage or discoloration. Damage caused by
exposing the hot tub to this abuse is not covered under warranty. We
recommend that you always keep the hot tub full of water when it is
exposed to direct sunlight and that you keep the Sundance insulating
cover in place at all times when the hot tub is not in use. Read and
carefully follow the requirements for your hot tub’s support base found in
the Section 4.0 titled, “Locating Your Sundance Hot Tub” (page 9) or as
prescribed by your authorized Sundance Spas dealer.
Sundance hot tubs constantly strives to offer the finest hot tubs
available, therefore, modifications and enhancements may be made
which affect the specifications, illustrations and/or instructions contained
herein.

Hyperthermia
Prolonged immersion in hot water may induce hyperthermia (overheating). The use of alcohol or drugs can greatly increase the risk of fatal
hyperthermia in spas. A description of the causes, symptoms, and effects
of hyperthermia are as follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches
a level several degrees above the normal body temperature of 98.6 °F
(37 °C). The symptoms of hyperthermia include drowsiness, lethargy
(fatigue), and an increase in the internal temperature of the body (feeling
of being too hot). The effects of hyperthermia include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Unawareness of impending hazard;
Failure to perceive heat;
Failure to recognize the need to exit spa;
Physical inability to exit spa;
Fetal damage in pregnant women; and
Unconsciousness and danger of drowning.
A Warning Sign is provided in your warranty packet. Please install at

important Additional CSA Safety instructions (Canada Only)
When using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
1. reAd ANd FOLLOW ALL iNSTrUCTiONS.
2. A green colored terminal or a terminal marked G, Gr, Ground,
Grounding or the symbol* is located inside the supply terminal
box or compartment. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this
terminal must be connected to the grounding means provided in
the elec- tric supply service panel with a continuous copper wire
equivalent in size to the circuit conductors that supply this
equipment (*IEC Publication 417, Symbol 5019).
3. At least two lugs marked “Bonding Lugs” are provided on the external surface or on the inside of the supply terminal box/compartment.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, connect the local common bonding grid in the area of the spa to these terminals with an insulated or
bare copper conductor not smaller than No. 6 AWG (10 mm²).
4. All field installed metal components such as rails, ladders, drains or
other similar hardware within 10 feet (3m) of the spa shall be bonded
to the equipment grounding buss with copper conductors not smaller
than No. 6 AWG (10 mm²).
5. SAVe THeSe iNSTrUCTiONS.

Locating Your Sundance Hot Tub
iMPOrTANT: Because of the combined weight of the spa, water
and users, it is extremely important that the base upon which the
spa rests be smooth, flat, level and capable of uniformly supporting
this weight, without shifting or settling, for the entire time the spa is
in place. If the spa is placed on a surface which does not meet these
requirements, damage to the skirt and/or the spa shell may result.
Damage caused by improper support is not covered under warranty.
It is the responsibility of the spa owner to assure the integrity of the
support over time. We recommend a poured, reinforced concrete
slab with a minimum thickness of 4 inches (10 cm). Wood decking is also acceptable provided it is constructed so that it meets the
requirements outlined above.
!
WArNiNG: For spas that are to rest on balconies,
roofs or other platforms not specifically tied into main
structural support, consult a professional Structural
engineer with experience in this type of application.
The spa must be installed in such a manner as to provide drainage away
from it. Placing the spa in a depression without provisions for proper
drainage could allow rain, overflow and other casual water to flood the
equipment and create a wet condition in which it would sit in. For spas
which will be recessed into a floor or deck, install so as to permit access
to the equipment, either from above or below, for servicing. Make certain
that there are no obstructions which would prevent removal of all side
cabinet panels and access to components, especially on the side with
the equipment bay doors.
!
CAUTiON: If the spa is indoors or located in an enclosed area,
proper ventilation should be discussed with an Engineer or authority
competent enough to understand the necessary provisions needed
to vent moist or heated air and air associated with chemical odors
outdoors. When the spa is in use considerable amounts of
moisture will escape potentially causing mold and mildew. This
can cause health risk. Over time, this can damage certain surfaces,
surroundings, and equipment.
Page 9
880 SERIES
4.1
Outdoor Location
In selecting the ideal outdoor location for your hot tub, we suggest that
you take into consideration the following:
• The proximity to changing area and shelter (especially in regions
subject to cold weather).
• The pathway to and from your hot tub (this should be free of debris
so that dirt and leaves are not easily tracked into the hot tub).
• The closeness to trees and shrubbery (remember that leaves and
birds could create extra work in keeping the hot tub clean).
• A sheltered environment (less wind and weather exposure can result
in lowered operation and maintenance costs).
• The overall enhancement of your environment. It is preferable not
to place the hot tub under an unguttered roof overhang since run-off
water will shorten the life expectancy of the hot tub cover.
• For spas that are to rest on balconies, roofs or other platforms not
specifically tied into main structural support, consult a
professional
Structural Engineer with experience in this type of application.
4.2
indoor Location
For indoor installations many factors need to be considered before
installing a spa indoors:
•
PrOPer FOUNdATiON: Consult a Structural engineer when
considering a foundation that will adequately support the spa
the entire time it is in place. Proper support is critical especially
if the spa is to rest on a second story or higher. For spas that are
to rest on balconies, roofs or other platforms not specifically tied
into the main structural support, you should consult a professional
Structural Engineer with experience in this type of application.
•
PrOPer drAiNAGe: it is extremely important to have in place
measures to sufficiently handle excessive water spillage. Be
sure the flooring in which the spa rests on has adequate drainage
and can handle draining of the entire contents of the spa. Be sure
to make provisions for ceilings or any other structures that may be
below the spas installation. Areas around your spa can become wet
or moist so all flooring and subsequent furniture, walls and adjacent
structures should be able to withstand or resist water and moisture.
•
PrOPer VeNTiLATiON: Proper ventilation should be discussed
with an engineer or authority competent enough to understand
the necessary provisions needed to vent moist or heated air
and air associated with chemical odors outdoors. When the spa
is in use considerable amounts of moisture will escape potentially
causing mold and mildew, over time this can damage certain
surfaces and or surroundings.
Page 10
880 SERIES
•
SUFFICIENT ACCESS: In the unlikely event that you should ever
need to access or gain entry to any portion of the spa for servicing,
it is highly recommended that you plan your indoor installation to
provide full access to the entire spa.
•
WARRANTY: Damage caused by not following these guidelines
or any improper installation not in accordance with local codes or
authorities is not covered under the spas warranty. Please consult
your local state or city building ordinances.
!
5.0
WArNiNG: In addition to maintenance of filters and
water chemistry, proper ventilation is recommended to
reduce the risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an
infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments that
could be present in the air or water. Consult a licensed
architect or building contractor to determine your specific
needs if installing your hot tub indoors.
General electrical Safety instructions
Your new Sundance® hot tub is equipped with the “state-ofthe-art” Sentry™ equipment system. It contains the most
advanced safety and self-protective equipment in the
industry. Nonetheless, this hot tub must be installed
properly to ensure dependable usage. Please contact your local
Sundance Spas dealer or local building department should you have any
questions regarding your installation.
Proper grounding is extremely important. Sundance hot tubs are
equipped with a current collector system. A pressure wire connector is
provided on the surface of the control box, located inside the equipment
door (Figure C, page 14) to permit connection of a bonding wire between
this point and any ground metal equipment, metal water pipe or conduit
within 5 feet (1.5m) of the hot tub, or copper clad grounding rod buried
within 5 feet (1.5m) of the hot tub. Bonding wire must be at least No.
8 AWG (8.4 mm²) solid copper wire. This is a most important safety
assurance feature.
Before installing your hot tub, check with your local building department
to ensure installation conforms to local building codes.

Hot Tub Fill Up Procedure
For best results, read each step in its entirety before proceeding with that
step.
1. Prepare The Hot Tub For Filling
• Clear all debris from the hot tub. (Although the hot tub shell
has been polished at the factory, you may want to treat it with
a specially formulated hot tub cleaner.) Consult your dealer for
additional information prior to filling hot tub.
• Remove filter lid (Figure F-K, pages 24-29), then remove filter
cartridge from filter bucket as illustrated in Section 14.1.
2. Fill Hot Tub
• Place the end of your garden hose into the empty filter bucket.
CAUTiON: TO deCreASe BUiLd UP ON COMPONeNTS ANd
MiNiMiZe ACrYLiC dAMAGe.
Never fill with water from a water softener. If your water is extremely
“hard”, it is preferable to fill half-way with hard water and the rest of
the way with softened water. You may fill entirely with hard water
if you use a special water additive available from your Sundance
Spas dealer.
•
! WArNiNG: TO deCreASe riSk OF iNFeCTiON Or
diSeASe.
Fill hot tub with clean tap water from garden hose, to reduce risk of
contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus)
and/or respiratory ailments. Fill until water covers all jets but does not
touch the bottom of the lowest headrest. (DO NOT OVERFILL!)
iMPOrTANT: Always fill your hot tub through the filter bucket after
draining. Failure to do so may cause air to be trapped in either
pump, preventing the pump from circulating water. Remove the
hose and replace the filter cartridge as illustrated in Section 14.1.
3. Turn On Power
Turn on power to hot tub at the home’s circuit breaker to start boot
up sequence. The heater and filter/circulation pump will automatically
activate. If the control panel LCD flashes water temperature and
“COOL” or “ICE”, this is normal. Refer to page 60 for additional
information.
Page 17
880 SERIES
4. Activate jets Pumps
Turn on all jet(s) pumps and blower to ensure proper
mixing when adding start up chemical in step 5.
5. Add Start-Up Chemicals
Add the hot tub water chemicals as recommended by your Sundance
Spas dealer. See Section titled “Water Quality Maintenance” (page
58) for general guidance.
!
WArNiNG: riSk OF POiSONiNG Or deATH.
Never leave chemicals opened and accessible to anyone.
Use chemicals according to the vendors instructions. Always
store chemicals in a safe and/or locked location. Keep away
from and out of reach of children.
6. establish A Stable Sanitizer reading
Establish a stable sanitizer reading between 3.0-4.0 ppm chlorine
or 2.0-4.0 ppm bromine. To ensure healthy water conditions, always
maintain a constant sanitizer reading within the levels recommended
by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals printed on the
inside cover of this manual. If sanitizer levels cannot be stabilized,
perform the decontamination procedure steps 9-15 on the following
page.
Note: The “decontamination procedure” steps 9-15 should also be used
after the hot tub has been “Winterized” (Section 14.7) or has been sitting
without power for an extended period.
7. Set Hot Tub To Heat
To warm hot tub water to a comfortable temperature, follow
these steps:
• The LCD display on the control panel displays the actual
temperature of the hot tub water. Press either the COOLER (Down)
or WARMER (Up) button once to display the “set” temperature for
5 seconds. If you want the water to heat to a different temperature,
simply press COOLER or WARMER within 5 seconds. The set
temperature increases or decreases by one degree each time either
button is pressed.
• The heater will turn off when the temperature corresponding to the
thermostat setting is achieved.
Page 18
880 SERIES
important Heater details:
• The maximum temperature for which the hot tub can be set is
104 °F (40 °C) and the minimum is 80 °F (27 °C).
• For Cameo and Optima hot tubs powered with a 40 amp service,
turn off jets pump #1 and jets pump #2 to operate heater.
• Setting the thermostat at maximum will not accelerate the heating
process. This will only result in a higher ultimate temperature.
• The heater operates until the water reaches the programmed “set
temperature”, then turns off. The heater will reactivate after the
water cools to approximately 1° below the “set temperature.”
8. Place Cover On Hot Tub
• Keeping the insulating cover in place anytime the hot tub is not in
use will reduce the time required for heating, thereby minimizing
operating costs.
• The time required for initial heat-up will vary depending on the
starting water temperature.
!
dANGer:
riSk OF PerSONAL iNjUrY.
Check water temperature carefully before entering hot tub!
Excessive water temperature can cause burns, welts and
body temperature to rise, hyperthermia (over-heating).
decontamination Procedure (Steps 9-15)
Steps 9-15 below are only required when sanitizer levels are unstable
after performing steps 1-6 above. Disregard steps 9-15 below if sanitizer
levels remain stable at 3.0-4.0 ppm chlorine or 2.0-4.0 ppm bromine after
performing steps 1-6 above.
9.
Add 2.5 ounces of sodium dichlor for every 100 gallons of water.
Refer to the table (page 20) for approximate water fill capacity by

• To decrease the risk of contracting a waterborne illness
(e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory
ailments, maintain water chemistry within 6 step parameters. If you or other bathers experience such a condition,
discontinue use and seek immediate medical attention.
15. Establish a sanitizer reading between 3.0-4.0 ppm chlorine or 2.0-4.0
ppm bromine, then allow the hot tub to set undisturbed for 8 hours.
Retest water after 8 hours to determine if sanitizer levels are stable.
If sanitizer levels are stable, your hot tub is ready for use. To ensure
healthy water conditions, always maintain a constant sanitizer
reading within the levels recommended by the Association of Pool
and Spa Professionals printed on the inside cover of this manual.
If sanitizer levels are not stable at this time, it will be necessary to
repeat this procedure in its entirety (steps 1-15) until stable sanitizer
readings are achieved.
16. After adequate sanitizer levels are achieved, close all spa air controls
by rotating them clockwise to maximize heat retention when spa is
not in use.

Operating instructions
Your Sundance® hot tub has a touch-sensitive control panel, massage
selector valves and air control knobs located on the top rim of the hot
tub (Figures F-K, pages 24-29). These controls let you operate many of
the
special functions of your Sundance® hot tub. By familiarizing yourself
with the following information, you will be able to gain the full benefit
afforded by the various functions of your hot tub.
11.1
View Button
Pressing this button inverts the main four-digit display on the
Command Center’s LCD screen to allow easy reading from
either inside or outside the hot tub.
11.2
Air injection
When the Air button is pressed, the air blower forces air
through the injectors located in the seats and footwell. The
bubbles symbol on the button appears on the LCD whenever the air
blower is on. An electronic timer automatically turns the air blower off 20
minutes after it was turned on.
Note: The air blower automatically activates for 1 minute at the start of
the clean-up cycle at 12:00 (Noon). This clears the lines of the air injector
system to help ensure that all water is exposed to sanitizer. This cycle is
non-programmable.
11.3
Controlling the water temperature
Press either the COOLER (Down) or WARMER (Up) button once
to display the “set” temperature for 5 seconds. If you want the
water to heat to a different temperature, simply
press COOLER or WARMER within 5 seconds.
The set temperature increases or decreases by one
degree each time either button is pressed.
To access the overtemp feature that allows the
Figure 1
spa to reach 106 °F (41 °C) follow the steps
below (Figure 1). Duetoadifferenceinsoftwaretheovertempfeatureis

display. To lower the temperature, press the COOLER (
) button.
C. When the overtemp has been activated, the white decimal point
after the last digit will flash on and off every second as an indicator
for being in the overtemp mode.
Note: Once the temperature goes below 104 °F (40 °C) and you would
like to raise the temperature to 106 °F (41 °C) again, you will have to
repeat the steps above.
11.4
Activate jets Pump 1
This button controls jets pump #1. Press once to turn on jets
pump #1. Press a second time to turn pump off.
11.5

On two pump models, this button controls jets pump #2. Press
once to turn on jets pump #2. Press a second time to turn pump off.
On three pump Maxxus models, this button controls both jets
pump #2 and jets pump #3 in the following sequence:
1. Press once to turn on jets pump #2.
2. Press a second time to turn on jets pump #3.
3. Press a third time to turn off jets pump #2.
4. Press a fourth time to turn off jets pump #3.
Note: Anytime a jet pump has been manually activated, it will
automatically turn off after approximately 20 minutes. If at this time you
desire more jet operation you may simply turn the pump(s) back on.
11.6

Selecting The desired
Massage Action
Your Sundance® hot tub is equipped to allow you to
customize the massage action you desire. Each model
incorporates a massage selector(s) that allows you to
customize the massage and performance by diverting water between
various jet systems. Simply turn massage selector to position A (Combo),
B, or C to divert water pressure to various jet groups.
Note: This valve is designed to operate in positions A (Combo), B, and
C for optimum performance. It is considered normal for sound levels
within the valve to vary between positions due to the large amounts of
water flowing through it. For optimum filtration benefits, leave the valve in
position A when hot tub is covered. Select position B or C for maximum
jet performance during hot tub use.

times on each jet system.
11.9
Air Controls
Each jet system has its own air control. These controls
allow
Fluidix ST Jet
you to regulate the amount of air which is mixed with the
water entering through the jets. Clockwise rotation adds more air and
counterclockwise rotation reduces air flow.
Note: To minimize heat loss, close all air controls when spa is not in use.
Certain jets may not draw air while either jets pump is running in low
speed; this is considered normal.
11.10 Waterfall Control
Turn waterfall control valve counterclockwise to increase
waterfall(s) output. Turn control valve clockwise to decrease
or turn off waterfall(s) output.

Heating Modes
The control system in your hot tub activates a programmable “Standard”
or “Economy” mode which effects when the heater operates. Refer to
Sections 12.1 and 12.2 below for additional information.
12.1
Standard Mode (Factory default)
Standard mode is typically selected by customers in cold climates where
heat up times are extended due to lower ambient temperatures. In this
mode, water temperature is regulated by the set temperature which
activates the heater automatically as needed.
12.2
economy Mode
Economy mode is typically selected by customers in warm climates
where heat up times are minimized due to higher ambient temperatures.
In this mode, the water temperature is regulated by the set temperature
only when a programmed filter cycle is running.
12.3
Selecting Standard or economy Mode
Press the (MOde) button to select either “Standard” or “Economy”
mode. The control panel’s indicator on the right side of the LCD changes
to indicate which mode is selected.
Note: “Standard” is shown when Standard Mode is selected. No display
is shown when economy mode is selected.
12.4
Clean-Up “Blow-Out” Cycle
The clean-up cycle is once per day in both Standard and Economy
modes at 12:00 (noon) for two minutes. This is not user programmable.
• Maxxus Models: Jets pump 3 and blower activate for approximately
45 seconds to circulate any water in the plumbing. Pump 3 shuts off,
then pump 2 and the blower activate for approximately 45 seconds,
then shut off. Finally, pump 1 activates and runs for approximately 30
seconds, then shuts off.
• Altamar/Cameo/Majesta/Marin/Optima Models: Jets pump 2 and
blower activate for one minute to circulate any water in the plumbing.
After 1 minute, pump 2 and blower shut off and jets pump 1 activates
for 1 minute, then shuts off.

Programming instructions
13.1
Programming Filter/Circulation Pump (Standard Mode)
The Sentry control system allows you to easily adjust two separate
aspects of filter/circulation pump operation:
•
•
The time of day (start time) the filter/circulation pump turns on.
The length of time (duration) the filter/circulation pump operates.
The factory default start time is 12:00AM (midnight). The default duration
is 12 hours. To make adjustments, press the (CYCLe)
button
once to enter the filter/circulation pump programming mode. The LCD
screen will display “Circ” At this time the system is ready to accept your
changes:
•
Press the (SeLeCT)
button once. The previously programmed
start time appears on the LCD display.
• Press (UP)
or (dOWN)
buttons to adjust the start time in
30-minute increments.
• Press the (SeLeCT)
buttons to program duration.
• Press (UP)
or (dOWN)
buttons to program the duration
time in 1 hour increments.
• Press (diSPLAY)
button to save changes and recall the main
water temperature display.
Note: If no button is pressed within 30 seconds, all changes are
recorded and the screen automatically returns to the standard water
temperature display. When the standard mode is selected (Section 12.3),
the filter/circulation pump automatically turns on for a heat call regardless
of the pump’s programmed start time and duration.
13.2
Programmable Heat Cycles (economy Mode Only)
Your hot tub comes with four 30-minute filter cycles which activate the
filter/circulation pump while in economy mode. These cycles are factory
programmed to start at 6:00 AM, 12:00 (noon), 6:00 PM, and 12:00
(midnight). The control system allows you to easily adjust two separate
aspects of each cycle:
• The time of day at which it begins;
• The duration of the cycle.
Note: When “Economy” mode is selected (Section 12.3), the heater
activates only during a programmed filter cycle period. When a Summer
Logic condition is active (page 49), the filter/circulation pump will turn on
for all programmed filter cycles.
Page 48
880 SERIES
Summer Logic: In warm weather, the water temperature in the hot
tub may exceed the set temperature. This condition may occur due
to heat transference from the filter/circulation pump and jets pumps.
If the water temperature is higher than 95 °F (35 °C) and rises two
degrees above the set temperature, a “Summer Logic” condition
occurs that deactivates the filter/circulation pump and ozonator (if
equipped). This safety feature cannot be altered! The filter/circulation pump and ozonator will remain off until the water temperature
cools to the set temperature (except between 9am-11am when the
filter/circulation pump runs for it’s mandatory 2 hour cycle.)
Note: Pressing the select button at this time will reactivate the
circulation pump and waterfall feature for 1 hour. To help prevent
a “Summer Logic” condition, it may be necessary to reduce filter/
circulation pump cycles run times in warm weather.
To make adjustments, first press the (CYCLe)
button to enter the
filter cycle programming mode. The LCD screen will display the following
in the upper right corner:
1
*Note: Number will vary
according to which filter
cycle is being programmed.
This means the system is ready to accept you changes to the start time
for cycle number one. Simultaneously, the large four-digit display in the
center of the screen displays the currently programmed start time for that
cycle. At this point, you have four options. You may:
1. Press (UP)
or (dOWN)
button to adjust the start time in
increments of 30 minutes.
2. Press (CYCLe)
button to display and adjust each
subsequent cycles start time. With each press, the currently
programmed status will be shown in the large four digit display. To
adjust any displayed value, simply press the (UP)
or (dOWN)
button.
3. Press (SeLeCT)
button to move down the menu from Start
Time to Duration, with each press, the currently programmed
duration will be shown in the large four-digit display. Press (UP)
or (dOWN)
button to adjust the duration in increments
of 15 minutes.
4. Press (diSPLAY)
button to save changes and recall the main

Monthly Filter Cleaning Procedure
We recommend cleaning the outer pleated filter (1) with a high
pressure water nozzle and the filter insert (2) with a low-pressure
water nozzle monthly. Periodically, the outer pleated filter cartridge
(1) will require a more thorough cleaning to remove embedded oils
and minerals by using special spa filter cleaners offered by your
spa dealer. Always remove the center filter insert (2) before
cleaning the outer filter (1) with chemicals. Never use filter cleaners
of any kind on the filter insert (2) or it may be damaged, come apart
or allow impurities to re-enter the water, increasing the risk of
contracting
a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or
respiratory ailments.
Procedure:
1. Grasp center filter insert end cap (2) in hand and pull outward from
pleated cartridge (1). If filter insert (2) is 6 months old, throw it
away
and purchase new one. DO NOT install new insert at this time.
2. Rinse debris from all outer filter
(1) pleats using a garden hose
and high-pressure nozzle. Repeat
process until all filter pleats are
clean. Then rinse debris from
inside of filter (1). If chemical
cleaners are used, follow
manufacturers instructions.

14.2
Draining And Refilling
About every 3 to 6 months, you will should replace the hot tub’s water.
The frequency depends on a number of variables including the amount
of use, attention paid to water quality maintenance, etc. You will know it
is time for a change when you cannot control sudsing and/or you can no
longer get the normal feel or sparkle to the water even though the key
water balance measurements are all within the proper parameters.
!
CAUTiON! reAd THiS BeFOre drAiNiNG: To decrease
damage to the hot tub’s components, turn off power to the
hot tub at the circuit breaker before draining it. Do not turn
the power back on until your hot tub has been refilled. There
are certain precautions to keep in mind when draining your
hot tub. If it is extremely cold, and the hot tub is outdoors,
freezing could occur in the lines or the equipment (see
“Winterizing”, page 57). On the other hand, if it is hot
outdoors, do not leave the hot tub’s surface exposed to
direct sunlight for long periods.
draining Procedures:
1. Turn off power to hot tub at breaker.
2. Locate the 3" gray drain valve cap on side of
the hot tub cabinet. Unscrew drain valve cap to
expose the underlying male garden hose fitting
(Figures A-B).
3. Attach female garden hose end to drain fitting
and route opposite end of garden hose away from
hot tub (Figure B).
4. Pull outward on garden hose end at drain
connection (approx. 3/8") to open drain valve and
release water from hot tub (Figure C). Water
drains at approximately 3 gallons per minute.
5. After hot tub has drained, close drain valve by
pushing inward on garden hose end at drain
connection until you feel it bottom out. Remove
garden hose and install gray drain cap before
refilling hot tub.
Note: The gray drain cap cannot be installed until
the drain valve is closed. Refer to “Hot Tub Fill
Up Procedure” (page 17) for recommended filling
instructions.
14.3
Cleaning The Hot Tub interior
To preserve the sheen of your hot tub’s surface, it is crucial that
you avoid using abrasive cleaners or cleaners which have adverse
chemical effect on the surface. If you are not certain as to the
Page 56
880 SERIES
suitability of a particular cleanser, consult your authorized Sundance
Spas dealer. Regardless of the cleanser used, use extreme care to assure
that no soap residue is left on the surface. This could cause severe sudsing
when the hot tub is refilled.
14.4
Pillow Care
Remove and clean the headrest pillows as needed with soapy water using a cloth or soft-bristle brush. Always remove the pillows when adding
chemical shock treatment to the spa water. The pillows can be returned
to the spa when the sanitizer reading drops below 4.0 ppm.

Wash pillow(s) in a mild detergent soap and warm water solution. Never machine wash your pillows
or attempt to clean them with a cleaning agent!
6
To reinstall pillows: Simply align pillow over mounting stud receptacle, then gently push inward to
snap in place.
14.5
Maintaining the Hot Tub Cabinet
The hot tub cabinet require little or no maintenance of any kind. To clean,
wipe cabinet with a clean towel and mild detergent soap solution.
CAUTiON: Never spray cabinet with a high pressure garden
hose for any reason since this action may induce an electrical short in the hot tub’s electrical equipment.
14.6
Maintaining The Cover
Using the Sundance insulating hot tub cover anytime the hot tub is not
in use will significantly reduce your operating costs, heat-up time, and
maintenance requirements. To prolong the life of the cover, handle it
with care and clean it regularly using mild soap and water. Periodic
treatments with a special conditioner developed for Sundance hot tub
covers will help protect against deterioration caused by U.V. rays from
the sun. Never allow anyone to stand or sit on the cover, and avoid
dragging it across rough surfaces.
Page 57
880 SERIES
14.7
Winterizing
Your Sundance hot tub is designed to automatically protect itself against
freezing when operating properly. During periods of severe freezing
temperatures, you should check periodically to be certain that the
electrical supply to the hot tub has not been interrupted. In extreme, bitter
cold weather (less than -20 °F) verify standard mode is selected (Section
12.1) to protect the hot tub from freezing.
If you do not intend to use your hot tub, or if there is a prolonged power
outage during periods of severe freezing temperatures, it is important
that all water be removed from the hot tub and equipment to protect
against damage from freezing.
expert winterization of your spa is highly recommended, contact
your authorized Sundance Spas dealer. In emergency situations,
damage can be minimized by taking the following steps:
CAUTiON: TUrN OFF POWer TO HOT TUB!
1. Follow the directions (Section 14.2) for draining the hot tub.
2. Turn the massage/diverter selector(s) into the middle combo position
to allow the water in the plumbing lines to drain, see page 32.
3. Turn the waterfall valve(s) to the open position to allow the water in
the plumbing lines to drain, see page 33.
4. As the water level drops below the seats, use whatever means
necessary to get the water out of the recessed seating areas and
into the footwell, such as a wet/dry vacuum.
5. When the water level ceases to drop, use whatever means
available to remove any remaining water from the footwell, such as
a wet/dry vacuum.
6. Remove the equipment-side cabinet panels and locate the drain
plugs in the front of each pump (Figures A and B, pages 13-14).
Remove these plugs to allow the water to drain out of the pumps and
heater.
Note: Approximately 1 to 2 gallons will be released during this
procedure. Use a wet/dry vacuum or other means to keep this from
flooding the equipment compartment. Replace the drain plugs.
7. Loosen hose clamp at bottom of heater (Figures A and B, pages
13-14) and pull hose off of heater fitting (twist the hose back and
forth while pulling downward. Tip hose down and allow to drain, then
reinstall hose and clamp.
8. Re-install cabinet side panels and cover hot tub so that no moisture
can enter into it. Consult your Sundance Spas dealer if you have any
questions regarding winter use or winterizing.
14.8
restarting Your Hot Tub in Cold Weather
If you want to start up your hot tub after it has sat empty for a time in
Page 58
880 SERIES
freezing temperatures, be aware that the water remaining in certain
Page 59
880 SERIES
sections of the piping may still be frozen. This situation will block
water flow preventing the hot tub from operating properly and possibly
damaging the equipment. We recommend you consult your dealer
for guidance before attempting to restart your hot tub under these
conditions.
15.1
Water Quality Maintenance
To decrease the risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection,
bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments, maintain water quality
within specified limits. This will enhance your enjoyment and prolong
the life of the hot tub’s equipment. Doing so requires regular attention
because the water chemistry involved is a balance of several factors.
Procrastination in regard to water maintenance will result in poor and
potentially unhealthful conditions for soaking and even damage to your
hot tub investment. For specific guidance on maintaining water quality,
consult your Authorized Sundance Spas dealer who can recommend
appropriate chemical products for sanitizing and maintaining your hot
tub.
!
WArNiNG: FAiLUre TO MAiNTAiN WATer QUALiTY
WiLL:
• Increase risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an
infection bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments.
• Damage the equipment, components and spa shell,
which are not covered under the hot tub’s warranty.
CAUTiON: Never store hot tub chemicals inside the hot tub’s equipment bay. The equipment bay may reach elevated temperatures,
this is where high voltage electronic devices are located. This area
is not intended for storage of any kind.
15.1
pH Control
pH is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity of water and is measured
on a scale of 0 to 14. The midpoint of 7 is said to be neutral, above which
is alkaline and below which is acidic. In hot tub water, it is very important
to maintain a slightly alkaline condition of 7.4 to 7.6 pH. Problems
become proportionately severe the further outside of this range the water
gets. A low pH will be corrosive to metals in the hot tub equipment. A
high pH will cause minerals to deposit on the interior surface (scaling).
In addition, the ability of the sanitation agents to keep the hot tub clean
is severely affected as the pH moves beyond the ideal range. That is
why almost all hot tub water test kits contain a measure for pH as well as
sanitizer.
Page 60
880 SERIES
15.2
Sanitizing
To destroy bacteria and organic compounds in the hot tub water, a
sanitizer must be used regularly. Your Sundance hot tub is equipped with
the Brominator™, a special compartment built into the floating skimmer
gate to hold the SunPurity™ mineral cartridge designed specifically for
your hot tub or bromine tablets. By regulating the number of bromine
tablets in the Brominator you can control the amount of bromine, which is
actively working, in your hot tub water. A bromine residual of 2.0-4.0 ppm
is generally considered desirable. A two-part bromine system or granular
chlorine (dichlor) are also acceptable sanitizers. When adding spa shock
(chlorine or non-chlorine) or pH balancing chemicals, activate the jets
pump(s) and leave the spa cover open for a minimum of 20 minutes. By
doing this you will allow excess chemical vapors to exit the spa, protecting pillows and plastic knobs from chemical attack.
!
WArNiNG: riSk OF PerSONAL iNjUrY, drOWNiNG
Or eNTrAPMeNT!
Never leave your hot tub unattended for any reason while
the cover is open and accessible, especially to small children and animals!
CAUTiON: riSk OF PerSONAL iNjUrY Or SPA dAMAGe!
Never add chlorine tablets (trichlor) or acid to your hot tub
for any reason! These chemical may damage components
within your hot tub, burn or irritate your skin, create a rash,
and void the manufacturer warranty for your spa.
15.3
Other Additives
Many other additives are available for your hot tub. Some are necessary
to compensate for out-of-balance water, some aid in cosmetic water
treatment and others simply alter the feel or smell of the water. Your
Authorized Sundance Spas dealer can advise you on the use of these
additives.
15.4
Ozone Water Maintenance System
This system is optional on North American models and standard
equipment on export 50 Hz spa models. If your spa is equipped with the
Sundance CD Ozone water purification system you will find that your water
stays fresh and clear with significantly less chemical sanitizer usage. You
will also probably be able to go longer between complete spa draining’s.
Note: To maximize sanitation benefits from this product, always turn off
the spa waterfall valve when the spa is covered or not in use. This setting
ensures maximum water flow through the ozone injector and higher
ozone concentrations. The ozone only runs when the circulation pump is
running and shuts off when either jets pump is manually activated during
spa use. The circulation pump will remain off for 5 minutes after both jets
pumps time out or are manually turned off, then resume operation as
programmed.
Page 61
880 SERIES
15.5
Handrail Maintenance
The handrails in your Sundance hot tub are manufactured from a high
quality 316 stainless steel alloy. Many people are familiar with the term
“stainless steel” and are surprised to learn that it does indeed rust and
corrode in the presence of chloride salts, free chlorine, or sulfide gasses.
The bad news is the environments that produce these elements are
ocean spray, salted highways, chemical treatments added to swimming
pools and hot tubs, and ground water in numerous coastal areas. The
good news is with proper care, your hot tub’s handrails can maintain their
original finish.
if your stainless handrails shows signs of rusting you should:
• Wash with fresh water (a good detergent won’t hurt).
• Clean with a good car chrome polish.
• Wax with an automotive or fiberglass wax.
You should never:
• Clean with chlorinated cleaners or scouring powders.
• Use sand paper, “Scotch Brite”, Brillo pads, or similar abrasive products.
• Clean with muratic or hydrochloric acids. Vinegar is ok, but it won’t
do much to remove rust.
