There are no user serviceable parts within the management system. The high
voltage can cause injury or death. The hot tub must be hooked up to a Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter (G.F.C.I.) by a licensed electrician. Use the test button
on your G.F.C.I. monthly to ensure it is working properly.
Always make sure there is an adequate sanitizer level in your hot tub before
entering. Failure to do so may cause skin irritations or illness. Use a test kit or
test strips to check prior to entry.
CAUTION:
WATER TEMPERATURE MAY NEED TO BE DECREASED FOR CHILDREN
OR THE ELDERLY.

Starting up your Beachcomber Hot Tub for the first time
For Hybrid Edition Hot Tubs, the external pumping and heating equipment arrives in its own separate Hybrid Equipment Box. The equipment must be hooked up to the hot tub
using the separate instructions provided in the Hybrid Equipment Box. For either LEEP or Hybrid hot tubs, electrical connections must be performed by a qualified electrician.
After the proper electrical connections have been performed to your proper standard codes, the qualified installer must follow these steps:
1. Check all union fittings on the Hybrid or LEEP pumping and heating equipment to ensure gaskets are in place with a tight fit. Hand-tightening is sufficient. If
leaking is noted at these fittings, the gasket may be missing, not seated properly or the fitting may not be tight enough. Unscrew the union and check.
2. Open all knife valves (shown below) that are pointing up. Leave all knife valves that are facing down in the closed position. Fill the hot tub with water from a garden
hose. You can place the hose directly in the hot tub, or attach it to the drain/fill valve located down by the pumps, to fill from the bottom. We recommended
running water through the garden hose to waste for 10 seconds, before filling the hot tub to ensure fresh water from the hose source.
3. Fill the hot tub to the half way mark on the skimmer opening as shown below. For Hush Pump equipped hot tubs, the level can be lowered to one third up the
skimmer opening, allowing for more displacement if the hot tub is subjected to use by more than the recommended number of people for that model. Do not
allow the water to go below this level.
WARNING
Overfilling WITH WATER will not allow room for displacement from
people entering the hot tub. Under filling could cause an airlock in
the system and could lead to pump and heater damage not covered by
your guarantee. ENSURE THE PROPER WATER LEVEL AT ALL TIMES.
Knife Valves
Open Position: plunger is pulled upward
to allow the flow of water through the
pipes
Closed Position: plunger is pushed in as
far as it can go, twist into the grooved
lock to keep it closed.
WARNING
ENSURE YOUR HOT TUB IS SITUATED ON A LEVEL, HARD SURFACE CAPABLE OF
SUPPORTING BOTH THE WEIGHT OF THE HOT TUB, AND THE WATER IN IT.
Placement of your Hot Tub
Beachcomber recommends that your hot tub be placed outdoors. All of our hot tubs are
designed to allow you to enjoy the great outdoors, all year long. We don’t recommend
you place a hot tub inside your home. Beachcomber cannot be responsible for damage
caused from installations; installation is your responsibility. Refer to the terms of the
Guarantee in this Owner’s Guide.
Normal water level,
half way up the
skimmer opening.
6
If you do choose to install your hot tub indoors, your qualified installer must ensure
proper ventilation, floor support, service access, drainage and safety according to your
local building code and safety regulations.
4. Open the air bleed valve to release any air trapped in the external plumbing
(see equipment configuration diagrams in this guide). There is one on the
300 and 500 series hot tubs, two on 300 and 500 series with Hush Pump
and a standard 700 series and three on a 700 series with Hush Pump. Once
all air is bled from the system, open any knife valves that are facing down.
Microfilter Removal and Maintenance
The Microfilter in your hot tub should be cleaned approximately every two
weeks, or more if bather load is high. Failure to clean the Microfilter can result
in cloudy water, odor and potential equipment damage due to decreased water
flow.
5. With the air bled from the system, you can now turn on the power at the
GFCI. Once the control panel is on, use the instructions on the following
pages to complete your start up. Refer to the instructions for the control
panel that matches your system.
To remove the Microfilter, first put the hot tub in Standby Mode (see page
12). To remove, twist the trim ring counterclockwise to unlock it and remove
along with the floating weir assembly. Lift out the basket, and pull out the
Microfilter. Remove debris from the basket and rinse. Soak the Microfilter
in Beachcomber’s Filter Pure cleaner overnight, then rinse thoroughly with
a spray nozzle to remove cleaner residue. It is recommended that you
alternate Microfilter cleaning each month with Beachcomber’s Filter Cure. We
recommend that you have two Microfilters, to alternate while one is soaking in
the cleaner. Microfilter life span is approximately two years.
Basic Hot Tub Configurations
Beachcomber manufactures hot tubs in two configurations; 1., The Hybrid

START UP
Before turning on the power make sure you have read the Start Up instructions on
page 6. When your hot tub power is first turned on it will display a series of numbers
identifying the software version and the voltage input. It will then go into a 4 minute

Before turning on the power, make sure you have read the Start Up instructions on page
6. When your hot tub power is first turned on it will display a series of numbers identifying
the software version and the voltage input. It will then go into a 4 minute priming mode
indicated by a Pr on the LCD display. During priming mode the Hush Pump will circulate
the water through the filter and heating system to allow the temperature to be read. If
your hot tub is not Hush Pump equipped, the jet pump will not turn on until the prime
mode times out or the
button is pressed to time out early. During prime mode the
jet pump can be turned on to make sure they are fully primed and moving water in the hot
tub. Do not allow an unprimed jet pump to run for more than 10 seconds. If the fill water
temperature is below 44°F/ 7°C freeze protection will activate all pumps immediately.
While the circulation pump is running the display will show a - - indicating current
temperature is not known. This will take two minutes. Once temperature is known it will
be displayed on the LCD.

Plastic Components
The jets should be removed periodically and rinsed out to remove debris from
the spinning assemblies. If calcium build-up is present, soak the parts in Filter
Cure to loosen the calcium and then scrub with a brush and rinse off. If a lot
of hair and debris is present on suction covers located in the foot well, this
can reduce water flow to the pumps. Manually remove when the hot tub is
empty or full.
Always turn the pump to low speed or off before attempting to turn the RFM
Diverter Valve. Failure to do this could cause the handle to break due to the high
velocity of water moving through the valve.
Operation of Hot Tub Interior Features
Air Control Valves
There are two air control valves located on either side of the touch pad, as
shown below. These air controls improve the massage experience in your hot
tub by adding more turbulence to the water flow. To turn on the air, turn the
knob counter-clockwise.
Jets (massage inserts)
The jets in a Beachcomber Hot Tub are known as Energ-Jets™ and are
availble in three sizes; small, medium and large. They are interchangeable
within the same sizes. Simply turn them counter-clockwise until they click and
pop out. To re-install, line up the small protrusion on the back of the jet face
plate with the slot on the white WaterPort, turn clockwise and push in until
they click in; see the photo below. The jets can also be individually turned off
or on by turning the jet face. Turning it clockwise will turn off the water flow
and counter-clockwise turns on the water flow.
To turn on the neck jet, twist the jet face counter-clockwise; to turn off, twist it
clockwise. If this jet does not turn off then carefully pry the face plate off with a
flat head screw driver, and screw the internal portion back in by hand. Then pop
the face plate back on and turn it clockwise to tighten in the internal portion.
REFLEX FOOT MASSAGE (RFM) Diverter Valve
This top side valve shown below diverts water flow between either the RFM foot jets
or the seat jets. To turn on the RFM, twist the Diverter Valve clockwise. To turn on
the seat jets, turn it counter-clockwise.
Note: when the hot tub is not being used, the diverter valve handle must be left in
the center position. This ensures that water in both zones is always in circulation
during periods of non use.
300, and 500 series hot tubs The left air control services the seat jets on
the left of the hot tub and jets in the foot well. The right air control services
seat jets on the right side of the hot tub. If equipped with the Reflex Foot
Massage (RFM) option, the right air control services the RFM jets when the water
flow is diverted to them, and the left air control services all the seat jets.
700 series hot tubs The left air control allows air flow to jets running off Massage
Pump 1. The right air control allows air flow to jets running off Massage Pump 2.
The right air control would also allow air flow to the RFM jets if the diverter valve is
diverting water flow from Massage Pump 2 to the RFM jets.
On all models, more air is drawn in when the jet pump is on high speed than when
the pump is on low speed.
On 700 series hot tubs it diverts water flow from massage 2 pump between the
RFM foot jets or the seat jets on the left side of the hot tub.

To operate the optional Quintessential Surround Sound System shown below, lift up
the front cover located on the outside of the Enviroskirt Cabinet and insert a CD or
select a radio station, select volume between 28-34. If you purchased the optional
remote, refer to the remote control reference card for operation instructions. The
remote is water resistant but not meant to be left in the water for storage. If you
have the optional QSS Plus System, the CD player fader control should be left in the
zero position. Complete instructions are available in the CD Player owners manual
included with your hot tub.
HOT TUB UNDERWATER LIGHTING
All Beachcomber Hot Tubs come standard with either a 12 volt incandescent light
or a digital EverLite™ LED light. Your local Beachcomber store is best equipped
to replace either unit. Drain the hot tub and locate the lens removal tool included
with the hot tub. Carefully unscrew the light lens. Carefully pull out the light unit
and replace with a new one, available from your local Beachcomber store. Screw
the lens back in until tight, but do not over tighten.
WATERFALL
Hot tubs equipped with the optional Waterfall feature shown below, will have a topside
control valve to increase or decrease the water flow to the Waterfall. The Waterfall
feature receives its flow from the Hush Pump or 2 speed circulation pump. If your hot
tub is equipped with the Eclipse Lighting Feature, the Waterfall will also be backlit. The
control valve must be left open when the hot tub is not in use.
Turbo
The optional Turbo shown below increases the amount of air turbulence that comes
out of the jets. It enhances massage pressure, turbulence and water action. With the
Turbo activated and air controls are closed, air from the Turbo will come out of the 4
salt shaker relief jets found in the foot well of the hot tub. It is your choice to use the air
controls or not.

Ozone
Your hot tub may be factory equipped with an optional Ozonator unit, or factory
pre-plumbed to accept the installation of an Ozonator.
Ozonators produce a powerful gas, and injects it into the hot tub water to
oxidize organic contaminants in the water and improve water clarity. Please
note: an Ozonator is not designed to replace your main sanitizer / disinfectant
system.
The Ozonator is equipped with a small viewing window. When ozone gas is
produced, a purple glow is best seen at night in this window. This diminishes
over time as they chip wears out. When no purple glow is seen during
filtration cycles (not heating cycles), this is an indication that the chip requires
replacement. The chip is rated at 9000 hours (one year).
WARNING
No user serviceable parts. Do not attempt to service AN OZONATOR
OR CLEARTECH UV UNIT or any other part of your Beachcomber Hot
Tub equipment pak. Contact your local STORE for service and/or
replacement. Do not view the UV bulb in operation. UV rays can cause
irritation and/or blindness.
WARNING
THE USE OF AN OZONATOR or Cleartech UV unit IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR
A WATER SANITIZING PROGRAM. FAILURE TO PROPERLY SANITIZE HOT TUB WATER
CAN CAUSE IRRITATION AND/OR DISEASE.

ClearTech UV WATER CARE SYSTEM (Optional)
Your hot tub may be equipped with ClearTech. This unit uses a specialized ultra
violet light bulb which produces UV light. Bacteria are destroyed as the water
passes through the tube and under this light. The UV bulb is rated at 15,000
hours. The glass sleeve covering the bulb should be inspected and cleaned
(if necessary) at each drain and fill. For service or replacement, consult your
Beachcomber store.
Vacation Instructions
Hush Pump™
The Hush Pump is a very quiet, low amperage, high flow circulation and
filtration pump that looks after the filter and heating functions of your hot tub.
It comes set from the factory to operate 24 hours a day.
3. Lower the water temperature to the minimum setting (optional).
Draining Your Beachcomber Hot Tub
Upon returning do the following:
Change three to four times a year or more if bather load is high. To calculate
the change frequency, use the following formula:
# Days = 1/3 (Volume in US Gallons)
If you are leaving your hot tub full and running while on vacation for
3-5 days, do the following:
1. Check and adjust pH level if necessary.
2. Shock-treat the water to raise the sanitizer level. Leave the hot tub Heatshield
half open for 1 hour.
4. Lock your Heatshield on the hot tub to maintain a safe environment for
pets or children. If you are in a high wind area, install Hurricane Straps
(available from your local Beachcomber store) to secure the Heatshield to
your hot tub.
1. Check pH and sanitizer level and adjust if necessary.
If leaving for 5-14 days and no one can come by to maintain the hot
tub, do the following:
1. Lower the set temperature to 80º F / 26.5º C. Sanitizers may last longer in
cooler water.
Max # of daily bathers
Before draining, check the sanitizer level. It should not be above 1.0 ppm, to
ensure no harm is done to the surrounding environment. If sanitizer level is
high, use Beachcomber’s Neutr-All as directed on the label.
1. Turn power off at the G.F.C.I. breaker or power disconnect switch (do not
use the standby feature).
2. Locate the black drain/fill valve shown below, found inside behind the door
on a Portable LEEP model or under the step on the Hybrid Edition. Remove
the safety cap from the fitting threaded into the valve.
2. Check and adjust pH and Total Alkalinity level if necessary.
3. Use either a Beachcomber floating tablet dispenser or a Holiday Tender
tablet dispenser to automatically dispense either Bromine Disc or Mini
Disc in your hot tub water to maintain water disinfection. Use the low
setting on these devices as the demand for disinfectant will be low during
this time.
4. Lock the Heatshield and attach a Hurricane Strap in high wind areas.
Upon returning do the following:
3. Attach the female end of your garden hose and place the other end at a level
lower than the drain/fill valve to ensure complete draining. To open, turn
the outer part of the drain/fill valve counter clockwise to open and start the

or below is detected at the heater housing. If your hot tub is Hush Pump equipped,
the only time freeze protection will activate is if the hot tub is left in standby mode
long enough to allow water at the heater to reach 44˚ F / 7˚ C or if your hot tub is
filled with water that is 44˚ F / 7˚ C or lower.
When power is out, check your hot tub each day to monitor its condition.
DO NOT ALLOW FREEZING TO TAKE PLACE. Beachcomber Hot Tubs is not
responsible for damage caused to hot tubs that are left without power in
prolonged freezing conditions.
There is also a small water line that runs from pump to pump that assists in
protecting against freezing, by increasing circulation between the pumps.
SHUT OFF THE MAIN POWER
WARNING
BEACHCOMBER HOT TUBS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR NEGLECT DURING
FREEZING TEMPERATURES, WHICH IS BEYOND THE CONTROL OF ANY
MANUFACTURER. IF POWER IS OUT DURING FREEZING TEMPERATURES, YOU
MUST TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR HOT TUB AND ITS EQUIPMENT, JUST AS
YOU WOULD WITH YOUR VEHICLE, OR YOUR HOME AND PROPERTY.
Winter Precautions
If your equipment is not working during freezing temperatures, you should first
contact your local Beachcomber store or a local service provider for immediate
assistance.
To prevent damage caused by the equipment freezing, place a small space
heater or trouble light down by the equipment. Position the heater or light so
that it does not melt or come in contact with plastic parts, to avoid equipment
damage. You can also block off the step or door vent to keep in the heat during
this time, but it must be removed once the freezing weather is no longer present.
EXTENDED POWER OUTAGEs
In most communities, power is restored relatively quickly. But in the event of a
prolonged power outage, first shut off the power at the main panel. Close the
knife valves to keep the hot water in the hot tub, and remove the drain plugs
or pull out one of the small braided hoses on the front of the pumps to drain
all the water from the external plumbing lines and the pumps. If the power
remains out for several days, you may need to remove the equipment pak to
store in a warm place; call your local Beachcomber Store or service provider
for assistance.
24
Both of Beachcomber’s Hybrid and LEEP Portable configurations have
equipment that is relatively easily removed. Quick Disconnect Union kits can
be unscrewed to release the equipment pak, for removal to a warm place.
Before any action in removing an equipment pak, first call your local
Beachcomber Store, or service provider for assistance. If you must remove the
equipment pak yourself, ensure that the main breaker is shut off at the main
panel in case power is restored.
BEACHCOMBER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE TO PERSONS OR
PROPERTY FOR EQUIPMENT PAK REMOVAL. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL
BEACHCOMBER STORE OR SERVICE PROVIDER FOR INFORMATION.
Shutdown Procedures
If you intend not to use your hot tub for longer than 14 days, do the following:
1. Drain the hot tub as outlined in this Owner’s Guide.
2. Unscrew all union nuts on the front of the pump(s) to allow any water in the
external lines to drain out. Retain the gaskets found at these locations, along
with the equipment.
3. Locate and remove the small black slotted drain plugs found on the front of
the pump(s) below the union nuts from step 2. or remove the small braided
hose from the barbed fitting on the front of the Hush Pump. Removing these
allows the last bit of water in the bottom half of the pump to drain out.
4. Remove the Microfilter cartridge and store in a dry place.
5. Lock Heatshield and attach Hurricane strapping if in high wind areas.
6. Provide extra support for the Heatshield if in extreme heavy snow by
placing a 4 x 8 sheet of 3/4” plywood on top of the Heatshield.

Beachcomber’s recommended parameters for COMFORTABLE, balanced hot tub water
Your dealer may recommend slightly different levels depending on your local source water. Please see your store for more information by taking a water sample in to
be analyzed. Maintaining balanced water is very important to protect your hot tub and its equipment. Failure to maintain proper water balance could damage your hot tub and
equipment, which is not covered by your guarantee. Your Beachcomber store can provide you with free computer water analysis, treatment solutions and home testing products.
Sanitizer / DISINFECTANT IDEAL level: 3 - 5 ppm
Always maintain an adequate sanitizer level. Failure to do so will result in cloudy water, odor and skin or respiratory problems. The ideal range is 3 - 5 ppm. Check
daily with test strips or a test kit available from your Beachcomber store.
• Do not mix products together.
• Add chemical to water, not water to chemicals.
• Do not allow liquids to freeze.
• Keep out of reach of children.
• Add one product at a time directly to hot tub water.
• Store chemicals in a cool, dry place.
pH IDEAL Level: 7.2 - 7.8
The pH level is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of water, 7.2 being neutral. Water that is too alkaline (over 7.8) can cause calcium scale to develop; too
acidic (below 7.2) can cause corrosion. Either condition can damage your hot tub and create unpleasant bathing conditions. Test the pH every week or more often
if possible. Use Beachcomber’s Resist to raise Alkalinity, thereby raising the pH; or, Beachcomber’s pH Plus or pH Minus can also adjust pH.
Total Alkalinity ideal LEVEL: 100 - 120 ppm
Total Alkalinity in balance stabilizes the pH level, prevents scaling and ensures that your sanitizer works at peak efficiency. Use Beachcomber’s Resist to increase the
level or pH Minus to lower the level. Adjust at initial fill or when topping up.
Calcium Hardness IDEAL LEVEL: 150 - 200 ppm
High Calcium can cause cloudy water (calcium in solution) or scaling on the hot tub surface and heating element. Too low a level can lead to excess foaming in the water.
Use Beachcomber’s Protect to increase the level; use fresh water dilution to lower the level. Adjust at initial fill and when topping up.
TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS ideal LEVEL: NOT MORE THAN 1500 ppm
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) is the measure of solids in the water. After 1500 ppm has accumulated, it is time to drain the hot tub. Have your Beachcomber store
measure this level for you. A basic rule of thumb is 3 months under normal usage conditions. Or, when water becomes listess, cloudy or foamy after that period of
time, it is time to drain. Water with a high TDS level responds poorly to water care product treatment and requires water replacement..
Important WATER Conditioners THAT IMPROVE PERFORMANCE
1. Metal and mineral sequestering product must be added to keep any metals or minerals in the water in solution. Use Eliminate #1 at initial fill.
2. Scale inhibitor prevents calcium buildup forming on surfaces in the hot tub. Use Eliminate Plus #2 at initial fill and weekly.
3. Water Clarifier agglomerates tiny particles in the water, to be picked up by the Microfilter. It also provides lubrication to seals. Use Pure Blue at initial fill and weekly.
4. Enzymes, a completely natural compound, eliminates scum at the water line, assists the filter, and removes odor and organic contaminants. Use Purezyme #3 at
initial fill and weekly.
Beachcomber offers a full line of recommended water care products to get the most from your Beachcomber Hot Tub. Since 1978, we have been providing
Beachcomber owners with custom formulated products to meet the needs of your hot tub. Always follow the directions on product labels.
