Important Safety Instructions
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of drowning, electric shock, or serious injury, read the following important precautions before using the hydrotherapy spa.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
1. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all users of the hydrotherapy spa are
adequately informed of all precautions.
10. Never insert any object into any opening.
11. Do not use breakable containers in or near
the hydrotherapy spa.
2. Use the hydrotherapy spa only as described
in this manual.
12. Do not sit on the spa cover or place objects
on it; it is not designed to support weight.
3. The hydrotherapy spa is intended for home
use only. Do not use the spa in a commercial,
rental, or institutional setting.
13. Remove any water or debris that may collect
on the spa cover.
4. Use the hydrotherapy spa only on a level surface. Do not use the spa on carpet or other
materials that could be damaged by moisture.
14. Keep children under the age of 12 and pets
away from the hydrotherapy spa when it is
not in use.
5. The hydrotherapy spa will weigh approximately 3,300 pounds when it is filled with
water. Make sure that the location you select
for the spa will support this weight, plus the
weight of the occupants.
15. Keep all chemicals away from children and
pets.
16. The pH and chemical balance of the water
must be maintained as explained in this manual (see pages 10 and 13). Failure to do so
may cause injury to users or damage to the
hydrotherapy spa, and will void the warranty.
6. Inspect and tighten all parts regularly.
Replace any worn parts immediately.
17. Individuals with infections and open sores or
wounds should not use the hydrotherapy
spa. Bacteria thrive in warm and hot water.
Always keep your spa disinfected and maintain the proper chemical balance.
7. DANGER—Risk of injury: Do not remove or
alter the covers on the suction fittings. Never
operate the hydrotherapy spa if the suction
guard is missing or broken. If you need to
replace a suction fitting or pump, make sure
you use only manufacturer recommended
replacement parts. Keep hair and body parts
away from the suction guard. Do not allow
long hair to float freely in the water; long hair
should be restrained with a bathing cap.
18. Shower before and after using the hydrotherapy spa. This will remove any deodorant, perspiration, or body oils that could contaminate
the water. Showering after will remove any
residual chemicals and any bacteria that may
have been in the spa.
8. IMPORTANT: Do not allow the hydrotherapy
spa to be exposed to direct sunlight when it
is empty. The surface of the spa shell can
reach temperatures as high as 150°F in a matter of minutes if exposed to the sun while it is
empty. These high temperatures can cause
significant damage, such as blistering of the
shell surface and warping of the spa shell.
Any damage caused by sun exposure is not
covered under the warranty.
19. WARNING—The Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter (GFCI), must be tested before
each use. To test the GFCI, press the “test”
button while the hydrotherapy spa is running.
The spa should shut off. Press the “reset”
button. The spa should resume normal operation. If the spa continues to run after the
“test” button is pressed, then the GFCI is
damaged. Do not use the spa until the GFCI
has been repaired or replaced by a qualified
electrician.
9. Do not bring any object into the hydrotherapy
spa that could damage the spa shell.

minimum No. 6 AWG (13.3 mm2) solid copper
conductor between the spa and any metal
equipment, electrical enclosure made of
metal, metal water pipes, or conduit within
five feet of the spa.
29. DANGER—To reduce the risk of drowning:
Prolonged immersion in the hydrotherapy spa
may cause hyperthermia. The causes, symptoms and effects of hyperthermia may be
described 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. The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in
the internal temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness and fainting. The
effects of hyperthermia include failure to perceive heat; failure to recognize the need to
exit the spa or hot tub; unawareness of
impending hazard; fetal damage in pregnant
women; physical inability to exit the spa or
hot tub and unconsciousness resulting in
danger of drowning. WARNING: The use of
alcohol, drugs or medication can greatly
increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia.
22. DANGER—Risk of electric shock: Do not set

Using the Hydrotherapy Spa
The hydrotherapy spa is designed to seat seven persons. The spa holds approximately 375 gallons of
water and offers a heating system (80°F to 104°F), a
filtration system, and adjustable hydrotherapy jets.
Follow the guidelines below to use and maintain the
spa for your long-term enjoyment.
Once you have tested the GFCI, you should verify the
water flow from the pumping unit. Set the air control
on the console to the lowest setting (see USING THE
CONTROLS on page 12). The pumping unit will heat
the water as it pumps. Cover the hydrotherapy spa
with the spa cover. The spa cover must be tight
(see SECURING THE SPA COVER ON THE SPA on
this page). The water will heat at about 6°F per hour
with the cover on. If you are using the spa indoors,
and the room temperature is maintained at 70°F, it will
take approximately 6 to 8 hours for the water to reach
the set temperature.
WIRING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA
The hydrotherapy spa is designed to operate with a
240 volt AC power source. It must be wired directly
into a 40 amp, Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
(GFCI)-protected circuit breaker. No other appliance
should be on the same circuit. Connection of the
spa to the 240 volt power source must be performed by a qualified, licensed electrician and
must comply with all local, state, and federal electrical codes. Please have the electrician refer to the
instructions on the inside of the electronics package
for information about converting the spa to 240 volt
operation.
The temperature and the water flow can be set or
changed with the controls on the console (see USING
THE CONTROLS on page 12).
SECURING THE SPA COVER ON THE SPA
To secure the spa cover, snap the latches on the spa
cover into the buckles on the premium cedar panels.
Once the spa is filled with water, the power can be
turned on. Note: The first time the power is turned on,
the spa will start automatically.
To lock the buckles, insert
the key and turn it clockwise
1/4 turn. To unlock the buckles, insert the key and turn it
counterclockwise 1/4 turn.
Always keep the buckles
locked when the spa is
not in use. Keep the keys
in a safe place, out of the
reach of children.
TESTING AND TREATING THE WATER
The first time you use the spa, you should test and
treat the water. You must also treat the water each
time you refill the spa. A test strip and a chemical
pack are available at your local pool and spa store.
Follow the directions carefully on the chemical pack to
test and treat the water. Always keep the chemicals
away from children and pets.
See WATER CHEMISTRY on page 13 for information
concerning proper water maintenance.
STARTING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA
You should always test the GFCI before using the
hydrotherapy spa. First, turn on the spa by pressing
the pump button 1 on the console (see USING THE
CONTROLS on page 12). Once the spa is running,
press the GFCI “test” button. The spa should shut off.
Press the “reset” button. The spa should resume normal operation. If the spa continues to run after the
“test” button is pressed, the GFCI is damaged. Do not
use the spa until the GFCI has been repaired or
replaced by a qualified electrician.

Maintenance
The hydrotherapy spa is designed to provide years of
enjoyment. Please follow the guidelines below to
properly maintain your spa.
MAINTAINING THE SPA COVER
The spa cover should be cleaned monthly. To clean
the spa cover, use water and a non-abrasive cleaner
on the entire cover. Rinse the cover with a garden
hose to remove any cleaner residue. Dry the cover
entirely. Use a non-silicone-based vinyl conditioner on
the cover after you clean it. This will help protect the
cover from sun damage.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Daily
• Check the water level and refill the spa to the level
shown in step 5 on page 9.
• Check the pH balance and sanitizer level. Adjust if
necessary (see WATER CHEMISTRY on this page).
CHECKING AND CLEANING THE FILTERS
Weekly
• Clean the spa shell at the waterline.
• Check and thoroughly clean the filters (see
CHECKING AND CLEANING THE FILTERS on this
page).
• Replace the filters if needed (see ORDERING
REPLACEMENT PARTS on the back cover of this
manual).
The filters should be checked periodically for build-up
of dirt and oil. If the filters need to be cleaned, follow
the steps below:
1. Turn off the power.
2. Unscrew the filter
Filter
covers.
Cover
4. Lift the the filters out
of the filter housings.
5. Check the filters for
Filter
dirt and debris. If the
filters need to be
cleaned, rinse the filFilter
Housing
ters with a hose. If
the filters are still
dirty, soak them in
cleaning solution
from a pool and spa
supply store.
6. Inspect the filters for damage. Replace the filters if
the are damaged.
7. Insert the cleaned or new filters into the filter housings.
8. Re-attach the filter covers.
Monthly
• Clean the spa cover (see MAINTAINING THE SPA
COVER on this page).
• Soak the filters for two hours in a trisodium phosphate (TSP) solution. Rinse the filters in clean
water.
• Replace the filters if needed (see ORDERING
REPLACEMENT PARTS on the back cover of this
manual).
Every Three Months
• Drain the spa and refill it with clean water. Sanitize
and test the pH of the water.
• Check for any leaks around the pump or joints in
the pipes. The seals will wear out over time; detecting leaks early can reduce repair costs.
• Clean the interior of the spa. Do not use solvents or
waxes.
WATER CHEMISTRY
Maintaining the pH level of the water is very important
to the operation of the spa. To maintain the proper pH
level and to sanitize the spa, you can purchase a
chemical starter kit from your local pool and spa supply store.
MAINTAINING THE SPA EXTERIOR
The premium cedar surround has been treated at the
factory. For information and supplies to maintain the
beauty and color of your premium cedar surround,
contact your local pool and spa supply store.
CAUTION: The chemicals used to maintain the pH
balance of the water and to sanitize the water can
be dangerous. Always follow these basic guidelines when handling the chemicals:
1. Always read and follow the directions on the
label, unless directed otherwise.
2. Never mix different chemicals.
3. Do not exceed the recommended amounts of
chemicals—follow the directions on the label.
CLEANING THE SPA SHELL
The spa shell should be cleaned with a mild soap
solution; do not use solvents or waxes. The spa
should always be clean and dry before being moved
or stored.
13
4. Keep all chemicals out of the reach of children
and pets.
5. Keep all containers closed tightly when not in
use.
6. Never add water to the chemicals—always add
the chemicals to the water as directed.
7. Always store chemicals in a cool, dry place.
ATTACHING AND REMOVING THE ACCESS PANEL
Turn off the spa power. To remove the indicated
Access Panel (25), Remove the four 1/4” x 20 x 1 1/2”
Machine Screws (46) that secure the Access Panel to
the spa. Carefully remove the Access Panel and set it
aside.
MAINTAINING THE PROPER PH BALANCE
The pH factor is a measure of the relative acidity or
alkalinity in the water, and is measured on a scale of
1 to 14. Pure water has a value of 7, which is neutral.
Any value above 7 is alkaline, and any value below 7
is acidic. You should maintain a slightly alkaline pH
level, between 7.2 and 7.8, in the hydrotherapy spa.
46
Severe problems can occur when the pH balance is
not maintained within this range. If the pH level
exceeds 7.8, dissolved minerals can build up and clog
the plumbing in the spa jet unit. If the pH level falls
below 7.2, the acid level in the water will begin to corrode the metal parts in the spa jet unit. Also, the sanitation agents in the water will not be effective if the pH
level is not properly maintained. Damage caused by
improper pH levels is not covered under the warranty.
25
46
To replace the Access Panel, hold the Access Panel
in place and secure it with the 4 1/4” x 20 x 1 1/2”
Machine Screws (46). Be careful not to overtighten
the Screws.
To maintain the proper pH level, test the pH of the
water regularly. To test the water, purchase a pH test
kit at a pool and spa supply store. The pH reading
should be between 7.2 and 7.8. If the level is too low,
add a pH increaser (usually soda ash). If the level is
too high, add a pH reducer (usually sodium bisulfate).
Test the water again after five minutes. See the
instructions with your pH test kit for additional information about testing and adjusting the pH.
DRAINING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA
The hydrotherapy spa should be drained at least four
times per year and refilled with clean water. You may
need to drain the spa more often, depending on the
user load. This must be done because after repeated
chemical treatment the water becomes chemically
saturated. Once this happens, additional chemical
treatment of the water is no longer effective. The spa
should also be drained if you will not be using it for
long periods of time. The spa must always be drained
before major repairs are made.
SANITIZING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA
The most common sanitizing agent is a solid bromine
concentrate. The amount required varies according to
several factors, such as user load, temperature, and
water conditions. Proper water maintenance is a complex process. Contact your local pool and spa supplier
for information concerning which chemicals you
should use in your area to sanitize the spa.
The hydrotherapy spa should always be covered
when it is empty. Direct sunlight can cause extensive damage. The surface of the spa shell can
reach temperatures as high as 150°F in a matter
of minutes if exposed to the sun while it is empty.
These high temperatures can cause significant
damage, such as blistering of the shell surface
and warping of the spa shell. Any damage caused
by sun exposure is not covered under warranty.
CHANGING THE FILTER CYCLE
The spa will filter the water every 12 hours. The duration of the cycle can be adjusted to last 2 to 5 hours.
Press the temperature up or temperature down button
on the console. When the display begins to flash,
press the pump button. The display will read F2. To
change the time, press the temp up button until the
desired time is reached. Press the pump button to
confirm the selection. As spa usage increases, the
duration of the filter cycle may need to be increased.
14
To drain the hydrotherapy spa, follow the steps below:
WINTER USE AND CARE
1. Using the console, adjust the temperature to the
lowest setting.
2. Shut off the power to the spa, at the circuit breaker
or GFCI.
3. Remove the access panel from the spa (see
ATTACHING AND REMOVING THE ACCESS
PANEL on page 14).
4. Pull the hose out and hold it above the waterline.
Remove the cap, open the valve knob, and attach
a garden hose to the drain hose. Lower the hose
and drain the spa.
The hydrotherapy spa is designed for year-round use.
If you decide to store the spa for the winter, store it in
a warm, dry location. Follow the steps below to winterize the spa.
1. Make sure the power to the spa is turned off.
2. Drain the spa (see DRAINING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA on the previous page and this page).
3. Remove all remaining water from the spa shell. Dry
the spa shell with towels.
4. Set the air controls to the lowest setting. Use a
wet/dry vacuum to pull any remaining water from
the system. To do this, place the vacuum nozzle
over each jet, starting with the highest jet and finishing with the lowest jet.
5. Set the air controls to the highest setting and
repeat step 3.
6. Drain the pumps (see DRAINING THE PUMPS on
this page). Once the water is drained from the
pumps, place the vacuum nozzle over the drainage
hole in the pumps and vacuum any additional
water from the pumps. Note: For additional protection, remove the pumps/motors from the spa
and store them in a climate-controlled room.
7. Clean the spa shell (see page 13).
8. Clean the filters (see page 13).
9. Shut the power off at the breaker. Label the
breaker in such a way that the breaker will not

close the valve knob, and re-attach the cap and
return the drain hose inside the spa.
6. Re-attach the access panel.
7. Refill the spa and treat the water with chemicals
(see pages 10 and 14).
DRAINING THE PUMPS
REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB
If the underwater light burns out, you will need to
remove the access panel to replace it (see ATTACHING
AND REMOVING THE ACCESS PANEL on page 14).
Make sure the spa power is turned off. Next, locate the
light housing. Turn the light housing counterclockwise
and remove it from the spa shell.
After the hydrotherapy spa is drained, the jet pumps
should also be drained if the spa will be stored for
more than thirty days or if it may be exposed to freezing temperatures.
Turn off the power to
the spa. To drain the jet
pumps, remove the
access panel from the
spa unit (see ATTACHING AND REMOVING
THE ACCESS PANEL
on page 14). Locate
the jet pumps inside
the spa. Loosen the
indicated collar on each

Troubleshooting
Most problems can be solved by following the simple steps below. Find the symptom that applies, and
follow the steps listed. If further assistance is needed, call our Customer Service Department toll-free at
1-877-897-7493, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Central Time.
1. SYMPTOM: THE SPA WILL NOT OPERATE
6. SYMPTOM: THE WATER DOES NOT HEAT
a. Check to see if the GFCI breaker is tripped or
was not turned on. Reset the GFCI breaker.
a. Make sure that the hydrotherapy spa is fully
covered with the spa cover. The spa cover
must be tight for the water to heat. Set the
air control to low. The water will heat at a rate
of 6°F per hour. If you are using the spa
indoors and the room temperature is maintained at 70°F, it will take approximately 6 to 8
hours for the water to reach the set temperature.
2. SYMPTOM: THE CIRCUIT BREAKER OR THE
GFCI TRIPS WHILE THE SPA IS OPERATING
a. Reset the circuit breaker or the GFCI. If the circuit breaker or the GFCI trips again, contact a
qualified electrician for service.
b. If you are using the hydrotherapy spa outdoors,
it may take longer for the water to heat. See
the chart below for the approximate heating
time.
3. SYMPTOM: THE PUMP HUMS
a. The filters may be dirty or damaged. Remove
the filters from the filter housing and clean or
replace the filters (see page 13).
Air Temperature
70°F +
50°F to 70°F
30°F to 50°F
b. The pump may have a foreign object stuck in
the impeller. Contact our customer service
department.
Heating Time

7. SYMPTOM: THE WATER IS NOT BEING
CLEANED BY THE FILTER
4. SYMPTOM: THE PUMP HUMS, BUT DOES NOT
ROTATE
a. Check to see if the filters are in place. Clean
the filters if they are dirty.
a. The pump may be jammed. Contact our customer service department. If your spa is no
longer under warranty, contact a local spa and
pool service provider.
b. Check the chemical balance of the water. If the
pH is incorrect, the sanitizing agents will not
function properly. See the section on maintaining the proper pH balance on page 14.
5. SYMPTOM: THE PUMP IS NOISY WHILE
OPERATING
8. SYMPTOM: THE WATER PULSATES OR
THERE IS MINIMUM WATER FLOW
a. There may be debris in the pump. Contact our
customer service department.
a. This usually occurs only when the water level is
low. Add water until it is 2 to 4” above the skimmer basket.
b. The pump may have a bad bearing. Contact
our customer service department.
b. The Filter Covers may not be tight. Make sure
the Filter Covers are tight.
16
9. SYMPTOM: THE WATER LEVEL DROPS
10. SYMPTOM: THE SPA JET UNIT CONTINUES
TO RUN AFTER IT HAS BEEN SHUT OFF
a. A clamp or seal inside the pump compartment
may be loose. Check inside the pump compartment for excess water and watch the pump unit
while it is operating to see if water drips from
any of the plumbing. If you can identify the
location of the leak inside the spa jet unit, tighten the clamp or replace the damaged seal.
a. To turn the main jets off, press pump button 1
once or twice. Note: If the actual spa water
temperature is below the set temperature, or if
the spa is running a filter cycle, the heater
pump/motor will not shut off.
