5. 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
that the flow rates are compatible.
Never operate the spa if the suction fittings are
broken or missing. Never replace a suction fitting
with one rated less than the flow rate marked on
the original suction fitting.
6. DANGER - Risk of Electric Shock. Install at
least 5 feet (1.5 m) from all metal surfaces. As an
alternative, a spa may be installed within 5 feet of
metal surfaces if each metal surface is
permanently connected by a minimum No. 8 AWG
(8.4 mm²) solid copper conductor to the wire
connector on the terminal box that is provided for
this purpose.
7. DANGER - Risk of Electric Shock. Do not
permit any electric appliance, such as a light,
telephone, radio, or television, within 5 feet (1.5
m) of a spa. (These units DO NOT have an integral
ground fault circuit interrupter. The installation of
a integral ground fault circuit interrupter MUST be
done by a qualified Electrician and must meet all
local and national codes.)

Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
8. WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury:
a) The water in a spa should never exceed 40°C
(104°F). Water temperatures between 38°C
(100°F) and 40°C are considered safe for a
healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are
recommended for young children and when spa
use exceeds 10 minutes. (Before entering the
spa or hot tub measure the temperature with
an accurate thermometer.)
b) Since excessive water temperatures have a
high potential for causing fetal damage during
the early months of pregnancy, pregnant or
possibly pregnant women should limit spa
water temperatures to 38°C (100°F).
c) Before entering a spa, the user should
measure the water temperature with an
accurate thermometer since the tolerance of
water temperature-regulating devices varies.
d) The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication
before or during spa use may lead to
unconsciousness with the possibility of
drowning.
e) Persons suffering from obesity or with a
medical history of heart disease, low or high
blood pressure, circulatory system problems,
or diabetes should consult a physician before

while you are using your spa, the Cover Lifter neatly
stores your cover behind the spa.
Automatic pH Sensor: Save time by having Bullfrog’s
Automatic pH Sensor test your spa water’s pH for you
(only available with the Limited Control System).
Miscellaneous Upgrades: For upgrades as they
become available, keep in touch with your authorized
Bullfrog Spa Dealer.
INSTALLATION & SET-UP
(Figure B) Several JetPak™ Variations
Before attempting to install or use your spa, please read
the U.L. Safety Instructions, the Additional Safety
Instructions, as well as all of the Installation
Instructions that follow:
SELECTING A SITE FOR YOUR SPA:
Your Bullfrog Spa was designed for either indoor or
outdoor use. Whether indoors or outdoors, please
adhere to the following guidelines:
1. Select a site that is stable and capable of supporting
the weight of your spa, its water, and the people using
it (refer to the “Model Brochure” or contact an
authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer for the Filled Weight of
your spa). If installed on a suspended floor/deck, the
floor/deck should be capable of supporting your spa. If
you have concerns on this matter, please contact a
qualified Licensed Contractor.
2. Select a surface that is flat and reasonably level. This
surface must provide continuous support for the entire
bottom of the spa. Do not shim or block up the spa
Page 6
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
creating voids below the spa.
3. Avoid installing the spa in a pit or low area where
water may accumulate and damage the spa or its
equipment. Choose a site where water will drain away
from the spa and not towards it.
4. Important: With all installations, the spa must be
located at least 5 feet from all electrical outlets,
switches, and other permanently installed electrical
devices.
Indoor Considerations: There are several
considerations when installing your spa indoors: First,
the environment both around and below the spa should
be water resistant. It must be capable of handling
water splashed out from the spa as well as the
possibility of a leak from the spa (Your Bullfrog portable
spa is the most leak-free spa in the industry, but there
is still the possibility of a leak from the spa. A catch
basin equivalent to the volume of your spa is
recommended); Second, it is recommended that the
room you install the spa in has proper ventilation.
Proper ventilation can usually be achieved by an
exhaust fan or an open window.
Note: Typical indoor surfaces include, but are not
limited to: concrete, wood, non-slip tile, or linoleum.
Outdoor Considerations: When selecting an outdoor
site, several things should be considered: First, Avoid
selecting a site where excessive water may contact the
spa, such as from sprinklers or a roof edge without rain
gutters; Second, and if possible, avoid areas of direct,
prolonged sunlight. The ultraviolet rays of sunlight will
tend to fade and damage your spa cover and cabinet;
Third, Check your local codes on possible restrictions
that require fencing or childproof gates around your
spa; Last, avoid locating your spa in an area where
debris will be tracked into the spa.
Note: Typical outdoor surfaces include, but are not
limited to: concrete, brick, non-slip tile, wood-decking,
peagravel or sand.
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS &
HOOK-UP
All Bullfrog Portable Spas must be wired in accordance
with all local & national electric codes. Have a licensed
electrician perform the electrical installation.
Important: All metal enclosures, pipe or conduit
located within 5 feet (1.5m) of the spa must be bonded
to the Control Center Box located inside the equipment
compartment of the spa. The wire used to complete this
bonding must be a minimum No. 8 (8.4mm²) solid
copper wire. It is to be connected to the ground lug
connector on the exterior surface of the Control Center
Box and all metal items described above.

•
Deluxe Control System/BULF70 (Fig. D)
•
Limited Control System/BULF75(Fig. E)
120V/240V CONVERTIBLE EQUIPMENT
Unless you special ordered 120 Volt equipment, your
Bullfrog Portable Spa comes standard as a 240 Volt spa.
If your spa is equipped with a Standard Control System
(BULF65), it can be wired as either a dedicated 120V or
240V system.
With the 120 Volt Standard Control System, you can
take advantage of the Bullfrog PowerPlus feature by
upgrading your 120V system to a more powerful 240V
system. The 240V system allows you to increase
horsepower as well as heating capacity.
For specific conversion instructions, please refer to the
system wiring diagram locating inside of the control
system box.
120 VOLT INSTALLATION
Use only a qualified Licensed Electrician to make 120
Volt electrical installations.
Your 120 Volt spa requires a dedicated GFCI 20 AMP
electrical circuit and a minimum supply wire size of 12
gauge. It is important that this circuit is dedicated (not
being used by any other electrical appliance) or your
spa may not function properly.
Position your Bullfrog Portable Spa at least 5 feet (1.5m)
from all electrical outlets or devices.
(Figure C) Standard 120V/240V Wiring
Diagram
240 VOLT INSTALLATION
Use only a qualified Licensed Electrician to make 240
Volt electrical installations.
Page 8
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
Your 240 Volt Bullfrog Portable Spa requires a
dedicated 50 AMP electrical circuit and a minimum
supply wire size of 6 gauge. It is important that this
circuit is dedicated (not being used by any other
electrical appliance) or your spa may not function
properly.
Position your Bullfrog Portable Spa at least 5 feet (1.5m)
from all electrical outlets or devices.
30 AMP Conversion Option: If you do not have 50
AMPS of electrical service available, your authorized
Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer or electrician can easily
convert your spa to operate on 30 AMPS with a
minimum supply wire size of 10 gauge. Please be
aware, that spas converted to 30 AMPS are only capable
of heating the water when the circulation pump is in
low-speed, not high-speed. This heating limitation is
acceptable in most climates as well as in indoor
installations.
ELECTRICIAN'S INSTRUCTIONS:
NOTICE: As of January 1, 1994, the National Electric
Code (Article 680-42) requires that all spas, hot tubs,
and associated electrical components shall be protected
by Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters.
(Figure D) Deluxe 240V Wiring Diagram
Providing 120 Volt Service to the Bullfrog Portable
Spa: As per code, supply a GFCI protected, 3-wire (Line
1, Neutral & Ground), 20-AMP, 60HZ, Single-Phase
service to the front, left corner (when you are facing the
control pad) of the Bullfrog Portable Spa. This service
must include a disconnect that is visible from the spa
and located not less than five feet from the spa and not
more than 50 feet from the spa (a GFCI Sub-Panel may
be used to substitute the disconnect if located within
the same parameters).
Providing 240 Volt Service to the Bullfrog Portable
Spa: As per code, supply a GFCI protected, 4-wire (Line
1, Line 2, Neutral & Ground), 50-AMP, 60HZ, SinglePhase service to the front, left corner (when you are
facing the control pad) of the Bullfrog Portable Spa. This
service must include a disconnect that is visible from
the spa and located not less than five feet from the spa
and not more than 50 feet from the spa (a GFCI SubPanel may be used to substitute the disconnect if
located within the same parameters).
Installation of the GFCI: All conductors except the
green ground must be routed through the GFCI,
including the neutral. Never bypass the neutral line. If
the neutral line is bypassed, then the current will be
imbalanced and cause the GFCI to trip.
Note: For a GFCI wiring diagram, please contact
Bullfrog International, L.C. or an authorized Bullfrog
Portable Spa Dealer.
Connecting the Spa:
1. Remove the equipment compartment door.
2. Remove the face-plate to the Control Center by
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
Page 9
removing the four screws located in the front.
3. Connect a 1" non-metallic coupling and conduit to
the 1" male CPVC pipe found at the base of the spa
cabinet (see “Parts Identification Diagram” in this
manual).
4. Run the required wires through the conduit and to
the Control Center.
5. Connect the 3 wires (120V systems)/4 wires (240V
systems) to the terminal block located in the Control
Center (see appropriate “Wiring Diagram”).
6. Replace the Control Center face-plate and the
equipment compartment door.
7. The electrical hook-up is complete.
Important: Do not fill or start-up the spa until you have

(Figure E) Limited 240V Wiring Diagram
Page 10
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
CHECKLIST BEFORE FILLING YOUR
SPA
Important: The equipment should never be operated
without water in the spa. Serious damage to the pump
and/or heater may occur.
(Figure F) Drain Cap
1. Installing Your Cover: Your spa cover comes
with tie-down straps and locking hardware to attach the
cover to the spa or decking. If your Dealer did not
install your cover, then refer to Cover Installation
Instructions that come in the cover cardboard
packaging.
2. Check Drain-Cap: At the end of the drain hose
(located in the Equipment Compartment) is the DrainCap (Fig. F) Make sure it is securely fastened to the end
of the drain hose.
3. Tighten Equipment Fittings: In the equipment
compartment, hand-tighten all PVC Pipe Unions and
Pump Drain Plugs (Fig. G) to prevent the possibility of
leakage (sometimes these fittings loosen during
shipment).
4. Check Valve Keepers: Verify that a Valve Keeper
(Fig. H) is installed on each slice valve. Valve keepers
prevent the valve from vibrating shut during shipment
or operation. A slice valve that closes will result in a
noisy pump due to a lack of water flow to the pump.
5. Fill the Spa: Fill the spa to approximately the
Water Level mark (Fig. I) on the back wall of the filter/
skimmer cavity (See Note 1).
(Figure G) Spa Fittings
Note 1: The higher the water level, the less spa users it
will take to cause the water to overflow the top of the
spa.
Note 2: Do not fill the spa with soft water unless the
mineral content is raised immediately (see your Dealer).
5. Check for Leaks: After the spa is full, but before
turning the power on, check all the fittings and
equipment in the equipment compartment for signs of
leakage. If a leak is detected, except from fittings that
can be hand-tightened, call your authorized Bullfrog Spa
Dealer.

JetPaks™
Depending on the model, your Bullfrog Spa is equipped
with either one, two, or all three of the following JetPak
types:
•
•
•
Bucket JetPaks
Recliner JetPaks
Lounger JetPaks
The difference in these three types of JetPaks is the
contour of the backrest. Because the Jet-Pak contours
are different, they can only be interchanged with
JetPaks of their same type (Example: You can
interchange a Bucket Seat JetPak with any other Bucket
Seat JetPak, but you cannot interchange it with either a
Recliner or a Lounger JetPak.
To identify a type of JetPak, locate the JetPak
Identification Number found on the back side of the
JetPak (example: B7-22-3). This number provides the
following information:
•
•
•
•
The Type of JetPak (B=Bucket, R=Recliner, &
L=Lounger)
The Style of JetPak (7=Style Number 7)
The Water Flow-Rate of the JetPak (22=22 Gallons
Per Minute)
The Number of Jets (3=3 Jets)
INTERCHANGING JETPAKS:
1. Put the spa in "Standby Mode". This will prevent the
pump(s) from activating while interchanging JetPaks.
(See "Standby Mode" under "OPERATION" in this
Manual.)
2. Remove the headrest.
3. Using your hands, remove the SnapCap (top
mounting plate) by lifting it upward.
(Figure P) Removing a JetPak
4. Push the JetPak forward until you have enough room
to reach the two PVC water unions (Fig. P).
5. Using your hands, loosen the 2 PVC unions (Fig. Q).
6. After disconnecting the air line union, pull the
manifold out from between the two water unions and
then remove the JetPak from the JetPod (Fig P).
7. Exchange the JetPak with another JetPak of the same
type.
8. Reattach the JetPaks in the same manner as above.

JETZONES:
JetPak manifold union
Bullfrog Portable Spas powered by two pumps provide a
unique feature called JetZones. A JetZone is a region of
jets that are all powered by the same pump. With
JetZones, you decide which JetPaks are powered by each
pump.
With a two-pump spa you get two JetZones. Each of
these JetZones can be customized with the use of a
JetZone Divider (Fig. T).
JetZone Divider
Figure T
By simply moving the JetZone Divider, you can either
increase or decrease the number of JetPaks that are
powered by a particular pump, thus creating a new
JetZone. By adding JetPaks to a particular JetZone you
will decrease the power to that zone. By removing
JetPaks from a particular zone you will increase the
power to that zone.
TO CREATE A NEW JETZONE:
1. Put the spa in "Standby Mode". This will prevent the
pump(s) from activating while disconnecting JetPaks.
(See "Standby Mode" under "OPERATION" in this
Manual.)
2. Locate the JetPak that contains the JetZone Divider.
3. Remove the headrest.
4. Using your hands, remove the SnapCap™ by lifting it
upward.
5. Push the JetPak forward until you have enough room
to reach the two PVC unions.
6. Using your hands, loosen the two PVC water unions
as well as the air line union.
Figure T
7. Pull the manifold out from between the two unions
and then remove the JetPak from the JetPod.
8. Remove the JetZone Divider (Fig. T) and reattach the
JetPak in the same manner as you removed it.
9. Install the JetZone Divider in a location of your
choice.
Note: If you would like to interchange JetPaks, please
refer to “JetPaks” in this Manual.
IMPORTANT WARNING: Never operate the spa without
the JetZone Divider in place. Doing so, will cause
serious damage to your pump(s).

MAINTENANCE
WATER CHEMISTRY
Tap water that is safe to drink is not always right for
your spa. Normal tap water is usually filled with
minerals and micro-contaminants that are not visible to
the naked eye.
Properly testing and treating your spa water is essential
for the health of your spa as well as the people that use
it.
Proper chemical maintenance can control and help
prevent the following: 1. Bacteria, algae and fungi,
which can spread disease and infection to humans; and,
2. Staining and scale build-up on your spa shell,
equipment, and piping; and, 3. Clogged filters.
Note 1: When using chemicals, always follow the
instructions provided on the manufacturer's labels.
Note 2: Use an accurate test kit to perform all
chemistry tests.
Note 3: Never mix chemicals.
Note 4: With the exception of Chlorine or Bromine
Tablets, always add chemicals directly to the spa,
evenly spreading the chemicals over the surface of the
water. Run the Filter Pump at high-speed for 15 or more
minutes after applying any chemical.
OVERVIEW OF WATER CHEMISTRY:
1. Sanitation: Sanitizers kill bacteria and keep the water
clean. Effective and safe sanitizers include any of the
following: GRANULAR CHLORINE (Dichlor), GRANULAR
BROMINE, CHLORINE TABLETS (TriChlor) OR BROMINE
TABLETS.
Note: Non-trichlor chlorine tablets and/or non-dichlor
granular chlorines must not be used in your spa, they
may damage the spa, voiding your warranty.
2. Super-Sanitation: As your spa is used, non-filterable
wastes, including perspiration, oils, hair sprays, etc, will
build up in the spa water. These substances make the
water unattractive in appearance and odor, and can also
interfere with sanitizer effectiveness. Normal sanitation
does not eliminate these waste substances, but SuperSanitation does. Super-Sanitation is achieved by
"shocking" the spa water with a NON-CHLORINE SHOCK
(Potassium Peroxymonosulfate), GRANULAR CHLORINE
(Dichlor) or GRANULAR BROMINE.
Note: Non-Chlorine Shock is the preferred shocking
chemical because it will shock the water without raising
the sanitizer level.
3. pH Control: Proper pH balance is extremely
important in controlling bacteria, providing water that's
comfortable for the user, and in preventing damage to
the spa and its equipment. Using the scale of 0-14, pH
is the measure of acidity and basicity in the water. pH
levels under 7.0 are acidic while pH levels over 7.0 are
basic. The proper pH range for a spa is 7.4 to 7.6.
Page 26
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
High pH levels (over 7.6) can cause the following:
Scale build-up on the spa and its equipment, cloudy
water, a prematurely dirty filter, and less effective
chlorine sanitation. To correct high pH levels, add a pH
DECREASER.
Low pH levels (under 7.4) can cause the following:
Discomfort to the spa user and corrosion to the spa and
its equipment. To correct low pH levels, add a pH
INCREASER.
Note: Never use muriatic or hydrochloric acid to adjust
pH as it can damage your spa shell and surroundings.
4. Total Alkalinity (TA): Total Alkalinity (TA) is the
measure of carbonates and bicarbonates in the water.
Low TA can cause pH to be unstable, bouncing from
one level to another, causing the water to be corrosive
or scale forming to the spa and its equipment. To
correct low TA, add a TOTAL ALKALINITY INCREASER.
High TA can cause scale build-up, cloudy water, as well
as other pH problems.To correct high TA, contact your
authorized Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer.
5. Calcium Hardness (CH): Calcium Hardness (CH) is
the measure of dissolved calcium in the water. Low CH
(soft water) can result in staining to the spa's surface as
well as corrosion to the spa and its equipment. To
correct low CH, add a CALCIUM HARDNESS INCREASER.
High CH (hard water) can cause cloudy water as well as
rough scale build-up on the spa's surface and
equipment. To correct or manage high CH, contact your
authorized Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer.
6. Stain & Scale Control: Stain and scale problems are
common in hot water environments. To help prevent
and control staining and scaling, add a STAIN & SCALE
INHIBITOR.
7. Foam Control: Spa water that's polluted with body
oils and lotions, combined with high water
temperatures, can cause excessive surface foaming. To
prevent and control foam on the surface of the spa
water, add a FOAM REMOVER.
8. Clearing Cloudy Water: There are two basic reasons
that spa water becomes cloudy. First, non-filterable
liquid wastes (perspiration, etc.) have contaminated the
water. To remove these waste substances, SuperSanitize the water (as described above). Second, nonfilterable micro-particulate wastes (dust, etc.) have
contaminated the water. To remove these wastes
substances, use a WATER CLARIFIER.
Note: Names of spa chemicals will vary from one
manufacturer to another. Please consult your
authorized Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer if you have
questions.
STARTING YOUR SPA WITH NEW WATER:
1. As your spa fills with tap water , add the prescribed
dose of a STAIN & SCALE INHIBITOR. This will provide
the initial protection against staining and scaling.
Note: Do not use soft water unless the mineral content
is raised immediately.
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
Page 27
2. When your spa is completely filled with water, add
the prescribed dose of a WATER CLARIFIER. This will
clear the water of any micro-particulates that came with
the new water.
3. If possible, have your authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer
test the Calcium Hardness (CH) of your spa water and
adjust as per your dealer's recommendation (the correct
level of CH depends on your overall water conditions).
4. Test and adjust the Total Alkalinity (TA) to the range
of 125-150 PPM (parts per million).
5. Test and adjust the pH to the range of 7.4-7.6.
6. After the spa water has circulated for approximately
one hour, add 1/2 teaspoon of GRANULAR CHLORINE or
1 teaspoon of GRANULAR BROMINE per each 200
gallons of spa water. After several hours, check
sanitizer level and, if necessary, adjust to the following:
Without Ozone
With Ozone
Chlorine Level:
2.0 PPM
1.0 PPM
Bromine Level:
3.0 PPM
2.0 PPM
Important: Unless you have ozone, do not use the spa
if the sanitizer level is below 1.0.
Start-up water chemistry is now complete. However, it
may take several days for the filter to completely clear
the water.
MAINTAINING SPA WATER
Sanitizer and pH Levels:
It is important to test and adjust the sanitizer and pH
levels of your spa on a frequent basis. If your spa is
used 0-3 times weekly, then we recommend that you
test your spa water a minimum of 2-3 times that week.
For each additional use you should test your spa water
one additional time.
Always test the pH level before you test the sanitizer
level. If the pH level is not in the range of 7.4-7.6, then
make the necessary adjustment. Use the dosage
prescribed on the label.
With each sanitizer test, use either GRANULAR BROMINE
or GRANULAR CHLORINE to maintain the following
levels:
Without Ozone
With Ozone
Chlorine Level:
2.0 PPM
1.0 PPM
Bromine Level:
3.0 PPM
2.0 PPM
To maintain the above sanitizer level with CHLORINE or
BROMINE TABLETS, please refer to your authorized
Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer for assistance.
Super-Sanitation:
Once per week, and when the spa is not in use, SuperSanitize the spa water by adding one of the following:
•
Two teaspoons of GRANULAR CHLORINE per 200
Page 28
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
gallons of spa water.
•
Four teaspoons of GRANULAR BROMINE per 200
gallons of spa water.
•
Five teaspoons of a NON-CHLORINE SHOCK per
200 gallons of spa water.
Note 1: With above-average use, Super-Sanitation
may be required more than once per week.
Note 2: With ozone, it may not be necessary to shock
on a weekly basis (see your dealer).
Stain & Scale Control: Use a STAIN & SCALE
INHIBITOR as per the instructions on the
manufacturer's label. Do not add this chemical until 34 days after Super-Sanitation.
Foam Control: As needed, use a FOAM REMOVER as
per the instructions on the manufacturer's label.
Cloudy Water Prevention & Control: Use a WATER
CLARIFIER as per the instructions on the
manufacturer's label. Do not add this chemical until 34 days after Super-Sanitation.
WATER CHEMISTRY TROUBLESHOOTING
Prior to each spa use, check the spa water. If the
water appears cloudy or off-color, has significant
surface foam or smells of chlorine/bromine, then
there is a problem with the water and it needs to be
treated or drained. Using the spa in these conditions
could result in a skin rash or other irritation.
For assistance in handling spa water chemistry
problems, consult your authorized Bullfrog Portable
Spa Dealer or another service center capable of
performing a Computerized Water Analysis.
pH SENSOR CARE
For spas with a pH Sensor (Limited Control System
Option) you must verify its accuracy by checking its
reading with a manual pH test kit on a bi-weekly basis.
If pH varies from manual test, consistently reads high,
is slow to respond or reads erratically then call your
dealer for service. IMPORTANT: If you leave your spa
empty of water for more than 24 hours, you must
properly winterize your pH sensor or damage to the
sensor will occur. For winterization instructions
contact your authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer.

CHANGING YOUR SPA WATER
Depending on usage, your spa water will need to be
changed approximately every 2-4 months or whenever
your spa water becomes difficult to manage.
Steps to Drain Your Spa:
1. Disconnect electrical power supply.
2. Remove door to Equipment Compartment.
3. Drain water from spa by completing the following:
a. Locate Drain Hose in Equipment Compartment.
b. Lift Drain Hose higher than water level in spa.
c. Remove cap on Drain Hose (Fig. U).
d. Connect garden hose to Drain Hose.
e. Lower Drain Hose to ground level.
Note 1: Drain water to an area that can handle the
gallonage of your spa.
(Figure U) Drain Cap
Note 2: If draining water onto vegetation, make sure
that the sanitizer level (bromine or chlorine level) of
your spa water is less than .5 PPM.
4. Clean the spa shell (refer to "Spa Shell Care" in this
Owner's Manual).
Steps To Refill Your Spa:
1. Remove garden hose from Drain Hose and replace
Drain Hose Cap.
2. Reattach door to Equipment Compartment.
3. Refill spa with tap water. Fill the spa to any point
between the two Water Level Indentation marks located
on the back wall of the filter/skimmer cavity. The depth
range of these marks is 6-7½” down from top of spa.
Note 1: The higher the water level, the fewer spa users
it will take to cause the water to overflow the top of the
spa.
Note 2: Do not fill your spa with soft water unless the
mineral content is raised immediately.
4. Restore electrical power supply.
5. See "Starting Your Spa with New Water" under "Water
Chemistry" in this Owner's Manual.

CLEANING YOUR FILTER
Cleaning the Filter Basket:
1. Put the spa in "Standby Mode". This will prevent the
pump from activating while cleaning the basket. (See
"Standby Mode" under "OPERATION" in this Owner's
Manual.)
2. Remove skimmer face-plate and basket (Fig. V & W).
3. Clean the basket. Avoid hitting basket against
objects to knock debris loose as this can break
basket.
4. Reinstall skimmer face-plate and basket.
5. Press any button on the control pad to reset the
control system.
Cleaning the Filter Cartridge:
(Figure V) Skimmer, Basket & Filter Location
It is recommended that your Filter Cartridge(s) be
cleaned every 3 to 6 weeks or as needed. Replace the
Filter Cartridge(s) approximately every two years or
when necessary. To maintain warranty protection, use
only Bullfrog Filter Cartridge replacements.
1. Put the spa in "Standby Mode". This will prevent the
pump from activating while cleaning the cartridge.
(See “Standby Mode” under "OPERATION" in this
Owner's Manual.)
2. Remove skimmer face-plate and basket.
3. Grasp cartridge(s) and lift out. With a garden hose
and nozzle or other high pressure device, hose
cartridge(s) clean with jet stream of water. Work top to
bottom on each pleat. To remove collected suntan
lotions and body oils that hosing will not remove;
soak cartridge(s) in warm water with a FILTER
CLEANER or detergent added. To remove calcium
deposits (a white chalky material) soak cartridge(s) in
a one part muriatic acid to ten parts water solution.
USE A PLASTIC CONTAINER ONLY. Calcium deposits
indicate a high spa pH, which should be corrected.
5. CAUTION: Using a brush to clean a cartridge could
damage it. Commercially available cartridge cleaners
may be used and can be obtained from your
authorized Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer.
6. Reinstall cartridge(s), basket and skimmer faceplate.
7. Press any button on the control pad to reset the
control system.

LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
To replace a burned out or defective light bulb,
complete the following steps:
1. Disconnect electrical power supply.
2. Remove the door to the Equipment Compartment.
3. Locate the back of the Spa Light Fixture (Fig. X).
4. Grasp the light bulb holder located on the back of
the Spa Light Fixture. Twist counter-clockwise to release
it from Spa Light Fixture. Pull light bulb holder out of
Spa Light Fixture.
5. Replace light bulb and reinstall light bulb holder into
Spa Light Fixture.
6. Replace door to Equipment Compartment and restore
the electrical power supply.
(Figure X) Light Bulb Location
Note: For alternate lighting systems contact your
authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer for service.
OZONE STERILIZER REPLACEMENT
On the front of your Bullfrog Ozone Sterilizer (optional)
is an ozone indicator light (the Ozone Sterilzer is
located in the equipment compartment). This indicator
light will glow whenever ozone is being produced.
To verify that your Ozone Sterilizer is working properly,
check the indicator light when the filter pump is
running and only during a preprogrammed filter cycle,
making sure that the indicator light glows (do not check
the indicator light if you have activated the jets within
the previous 30 minutes - as a safety device, your
Ozone Sterilizer shuts down for 30 minutes after the
“Jets” button has been pressed).
If the indicator light does not glow when the filter pump
is running then your Sterilizer is not working properly.
When this occurs, take the following steps:
1. Disconnect electrical power supply.
2. Locate the Ozone Sterilizer (Fig. Y).
3. Unplug the Ozone Sterilizer's power supply cord from
your spa's Control Center.
(Figure Y) Ozone Sterilizer Location
4. Disconnect the output tubing from the Ozone
Sterilizer.
5. Remove the mounting screws that hold the Ozone
Sterilizer in place.
6.Take the entire Ozone Sterilizer to your authorized
Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer. Your Ozone Sterilizer will
be checked to verify that it is defective. If defective,
then replace the entire Ozone Sterilizer with a new one.
Note: If your Ozone Sterilizer is found to be working
properly, then you may have a problem with your spa's
Control Center or Control Pad. Consult your dealer and
request a service call.
7. Reinstall the Ozone Sterilizer by reversing the above
procedure.

SPA SHELL CARE
Your Bullfrog spa surface is durable and easy to clean:
Quarite Plus® Spa Surface:
For normal cleaning, use Ivory® Liquid dishwashing
detergent or its equivalent. For stubborn stains, use
Spic & Span® in powder form or its equivalent. To apply
these cleaners, use a soft, damp cloth or sponge. Rinse
well and dry with a clean cloth.
Centrex® Spa Surface:
For normal cleaning, use a mild soap solution (5%Ivory®
Flakes in water), a mild detergent solution (3% Tide® in
water), Household Ammonia, or Mineral Spirits. For
surface mars, use Baking Soda. To apply these cleaners,
use a soft, damp cloth or sponge. Rinse well and dry
with a clean cloth.
General Cleaning:
With normal use of your spa, oils, lotions and
hairsprays will build up on the surface of the water,
sometimes leaving a scum line around the perimeter of
your spa shell. This scum line can easily be removed
with a spa SURFACE CLEANER or its equivalent.
To remove grease, oil, paint and ink stains, use 25%
isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol in water.
For hard water stains consult your authorized Bullfrog
Portable Spa Dealer for acceptable cleaning agents.
To remove light scratches and/or to protect your spa’s
shell, see your Bullfrog Dealer for an acceptable spa
wax.
Note 1: Never allow your spa surface to come in
contact with acetone (nail polish remover), nail polish,
dry cleaning solution, lacquer thinners, gasoline, pine
oil, abrasive cleaners, or any other harsh chemical.
These chemicals can damage your spa shell and void
your warranty.
Note 2: Avoid using cleaning agents that will leave
suds in your spa water.
Note 3: Be sure to clean the JetPaks and the JetPods
(the area behind the JetPaks) approximately twice each
year.
SPA CABINET CARE
EternaWood & EternaStone Cabinets: Your
EternaWood and EternaStone cabinet components are
made to provide many years of maintenance free
service. For normal cleaning (EternaWood Cabinets
only), use Ivory® Liquid dishwashing detergent or its
equivalent. For stubborn stains, contact your authorized
Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer.
Cedar Wood Cabinet: Depending on exposure to
sunlight, water, and spa chemicals, your spa cabinet
will require staining every 3-9 months. Use an oil-based
stain that absorbs into the wood. See your authorized
Bullfrog Portable Spa Dealer for the right stain.
Note 1: Avoid sealers that cover only the outside of the
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
Page 33
wood, causing the inside to dry out and crack or even
warp.
Note 2: To prevent stain from getting on other
surfaces, use drop cloths at the base of the spa and use
painter's tap around the top lip of the spa.
SPA COVER CARE
Your spa cover is warranted by its manufacturer,
Sunstar Enterprises, 127 N. Las Posas, San Marcos, CA
92069 (Phone 619-744-2172). Although basic
instructions are provided below, it is important that you
refer to the Sunstar information that came with your
cover. Sunstar provides detailed information on caring
for your spa cover and what to do to protect its
warranty.
Cleaning & Conditioning Your Spa Cover:
On a monthly basis, complete the following:
1. Remove the spa cover and lay it down on a flat, clean
surface near a garden hose.
2. Rinse the cover to remove any loose debris.
3. Using a soft bristle brush, clean the top (vinyl
portion) of the cover with a mild solution of
dishwashing liquid soap-about one teaspoon of soap to
two gallons of water. Scrub the cover, using a gentle
circular motion, being careful not to let any areas of the
cover dry before rinsing with water.
4. Rinse the cover thoroughly and then dry with a clean
cloth.
5. Use saddle soap (never use Armorall) to condition the
cover. Follow directions on the container.
6. Wipe and/or rinse any dirt from the bottom side of
the cover.
7. Replace the cover and secure with cover locks.
Note: To remove tree sap, use lighter fluid (not charcoal
lighter, but the type used in cigarette lighters). Use
sparingly. Immediately apply saddle soap to that area.
MISCELLANEOUS CARE
Cleaning & Protecting the Headrests: Clean on a
regular basis with soap, water and a clean cloth. Use
Armorall® Protectant or its equivalent once per month.
This will maintain water resistance and luster of the
product.
Vacuuming the Spa: Debris from wind, trees, and spa
users will occasionally accumulate on the bottom of
your spa. Your spa's filtration system will remove the
smaller debris. Debris that is too large or too heavy for
the filtration system will have to be removed by the use
of a spa vacuum. If you do not have a spa vacuum,
please contact your authorized Bullfrog Portable Spa
Dealer.
Page 34
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
Cleaning the Scum Line: With normal use of your spa,
oils, lotions and hairsprays will build up on the
surface of the water, sometimes leaving a scum line
around the perimeter of your spa shell. This scum line
can easily be removed with a spa SURFACE CLEANER
or its equivalent. See your authorized Bullfrog Portable
Spa Dealer for this product.
Note: Avoid using cleaning agents that will leave suds
in your spa water.
LOW-USE OR NO-USE PERIODS
At certain times of the year you may not use your spa
as often as expected. For these low-use or no-use
periods, we recommend the following:
Low-Use: If your spa is being used less than once per
month, then you may wish to lower the temperature
setting by approximately 5-10°F or put the spa in the
"Economy Mode". Lowering the temperature on your
spa will cut your cost of operation if you are not using
the spa for extended periods, however, you will need
to adjust the temperature setting approximately 15
minutes before each use to heat the spa to the
desired level.
No Use for 1-2 Weeks: If you plan to not use your spa
for one-two weeks, then we suggest that you not
make any changes in operating your spa. Substantially
reducing the water temperature (in well insulated
spas) for short periods of time has proven to increase
heating costs.
No Use for 2-6 Weeks: If you plan to not use your spa
for two-six weeks, then you may wish to lower the
temperature setting to approximately 80°F during the
No-Use period.
No Use for Over 6 Weeks: If you plan to not use your
spa for over six weeks, then it is suggested that you
winterize your spa by taking the following steps:
SPA WINTERIZATION:
1. Drain the water from the spa (see "Steps to Drain
Your Spa" under "Changing Your Spa Water" in this
Owner's Manual).
2. Drain the spa equipment. This is done by removing
the drain plug from the pump(s) and loosening all PVC
pipe unions and pump air bleed valves in the
equipment compartment.
3. Clean the spa shell (see "Spa Shell Care" in this
Owner's Manual).
4. Remove filter cartridge(s), clean filter (see "Cleaning
Your Filter" in this Owner's Manual), allow to dry, and
then store inside your garage or home.
5. Remove and properly winterize your pH Sensor
(Option on Limited Control Systems). For winterization
instructions contact your authorized Bullfrog Spa
Dealer.
6. Reattach and secure cover to the spa.
Bullfrog Spas Owner’s Manual
Page 35
SPA DE-WINTERIZATION:
De-Winterization is completed by reversing the above
procedure and then refilling the spa (see "Steps to Refill
Your Spa" under "Changing Your Spa Water" in this
Owner's Manual).
Note: During periods of No-Use, you should test and
chemically treat the water approximately once per
week. Not doing so may lead to corrosion, staining and/
or scaling to your spa and its equipment. If there is no
one available to take care of the spa on a weekly basis,
then it is recommended that you winterize your spa as
described above.
SERVICE
Before requesting service from your dealer, refer to the
Trouble Shooting Guide in this Owner's Manual to
determine the necessary coarse of action. If you are not
able to solve the problem using the Trouble Shooting
Guide, please contact your authorized Bullfrog Portable
Spa Dealer.
WARRANTY SERVICE
If your Bullfrog Portable Spa fails within the warranty
period and within the scope of its warranty, contact
your authorized dealer and schedule a service call. You
will be required to show proof of purchase by provided
your dealer with a copy of your original sales receipt.
Note : Damage caused by repairs made by someone
other than an authorized Bullfrog Portable Spa
technician will not be covered by your warranty.
NON-WARRANTY SERVICE
We recommend having an authorized Bullfrog Portable
Spa technician perform all repairs on spas that fail
outside of warranty coverage or beyond the warranty
period. If you are not able to use an authorized Bullfrog
Spa technician, we encourage you to request and use
genuine Bullfrog replacement parts.
