Congratulations!
Your choice of an Arctic Spa indicates
that you are devoted to excellence. At
Arctic Spas® we believe a good foundation is
required to build a superior product, both in
design and philosophy. Canadian built with the
finest materials and advanced technology to withstand
even the harshest of weather conditions, Arctic Spas® are
made to perform... wherever you happen to live. To safely and effectively
use your spa, we recommend that you take the time to read this manual
before you hook-up and operate the spa. This guide will acquaint you
with the operating features, hook-up procedures, and the maintenance
and safety procedures, ensuring an enjoyable experience right from the
start.
If you require additional information, please call your local Arctic Spas®
dealer. A complete list of dealers and international Arctic Spas websites
can be found on the internet at www.ArcticSpas.com.
IMPORTANT!
In most cities and counties, permits will be required for the installation
of electrical circuits or the construction of exterior surfaces (decks and
gazebos). In addition, some communities have adopted residential barrier codes which may require fencing and/or self-closing gates on the
property to prevent unsupervised access to a pool or spa by children under 5 years of age. Your Arctic Spa is equipped with a locking cover that
meets the ASTM F1346-91 Standard for Safety Covers and as a result,
is usually exempt from most barrier requirements. As a general practice,
your local Building Department will inform you of any applicable barrier requirements at the time a permit is obtained for the installation of
an electrical circuit. Your Arctic Spas Dealer can provide information on
which permits may be required.

unit and any metal equipment, metal enclosures of electrical equipment, metal water pipe, or conduit
within 5 feet (1.5 m) of the unit.
3) DANGER: Risk of Accidental Drowning. Extreme caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorized access by children. To avoid accidents, ensure that children cannot use this hot tub unless they are
supervised at all times. Use the hot tub straps, cover safety and clip tie downs to secure the cover when
not in use. This will help to discourage unsupervised children from entering the hot tub. There is no
representation that the cover, clip tie downs, or actual locks will prevent access to the hot tub.
4) DANGER: Risk of Injury. The suction fittings in this hot tub 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 hot tub if the suction fittings are broken or missing. Consult your local dealer for assistance in choosing an appropriate replacement
suction fitting.
5) DANGER: Risk of Electric Shock. Install at least 5 feet (1.5 m), from all metal
surfaces. As an alternative, a hot tub may be installed within 5 feet (1.5 m) of metal
surfaces if each metal surface is permanently connected (bonded) by a minimum No. 8

* North American Spas can run single phase 240 Volt, 40, 50 and 60 amp. low level programming
should be set to reflect what power is supplied. When supplied power is less than required the spa
pack will adjust operation to not exceed available power. This may result in inability to operate all
devices at once.
** European spas can run single and three phase with 16,20,25,32 and 40amp. Low
level programming should be set to reflect what power is supplied. When supplied
power is less than required the spa pack will adjust accordingly to not exceed available power. This may result in inability to operate all devices at once.
Installation Instructions
Site Preparation
Please ensure the following:
• Always put your spa on a structurally sound, level surface. A filled spa can weigh a great deal. Make certain that the location you choose can support the weight of your filled spa.
• Locate your equipment compartment, which houses all of the electrical components, in a place where you will have easy access for periodic spa care and maintenance.
• Allow adequate access to all other doors for service.
Outdoor Ground Level Installation
No matter where you install your new spa, it’s important that you have a solid foundation for support. If you are installing a spa with a wooden pedestal floor outdoors, we recommend you place patio
stones underneath spaced out evenly. The stones should be at least two inches thick and twelve inches
square (30 cm x 30 cm). Even with stones in place, the spa will possibly settle and become uneven, and
may require re-leveling over time. If you are installing a spa with a Forever Floor® outdoors, you may
set it on virtually any surface, as long as it is level.
Deck Installation
To be certain your deck can support your spa, you must know the deck’s maximum load capacity. Consult a qualified building contractor or structural engineer. To find the weight of your spa, its contents
and occupants, refer to the Spa Specification chart. This weight per square foot must not exceed the
structure’s rated capacity, or serious structural damage could result.
Your Arctic Spas® Dealer can help you with local information such as zoning regulations and building
codes.
All Spas Require a Solid Level Base
All Arctic Spas® models require a solid level base. The Arctic Ocean in particular, due to its weight and
size, will require a solid, level base.
WARNING! WARNING!
We recommend that the Arctic Spa be installed
above ground. Consult a licensed building
contractor to design or evaluate your custom
decking requirements.

APPLICABLE LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES. ALL ELECTRICAL WORK
SHOULD BE DONE BY AN EXPERIENCED, LICENSED ELECTRICIAN
AND APPROVED BY A LOCAL BUILDING/ELECTRICAL
INSPECTION AUTHORITY.
The electrical supply must satisfy the requirements of the spa as marked on the certification label which
is located adjacent to the spa controller (pack). If the ratings are not legible or cannot be found, please
contact the factory for assistance. - DO NOT GUESS!
WARNING: Removing or bypassing any GFCI /RCD breaker will result in an unsafe
spa and will void the spa’s warranty.
IMPORTANT: Your Arctic Spa has been carefully engineered to provide maximum safety
against electric shock. Remember, connecting the spa to an improperly
wired circuit will negate many of its safety features.

reference only!
Startup Procedures
IMPORTANT:
Your Arctic Spa® has been thoroughly tested during the manufacturing process to
ensure reliability and long-term customer satisfaction. Before filling the spa, wipe
the spa shell clean with a soft rag.
The following instructions must be read and followed exactly to ensure a successful
start-up or refill.
1) Ensure the electrical connections have been made in accordance with this manual.
2) Ensure all O-Rings have been installed into unions and unions have been tightened sufficiently.
3) Ensure all ball valves are open, and the drain has been closed.
4) Using a garden hose with a pre-filter, fill the spa with pre-filtered water to the bottom of the
pillows (or approximately 6”, 15 cm above the base of the floating weir).
5) Once the spa is filled to the proper level, turn the power to the spa on, by turning on the GFCI
/RCD breaker in your panel.
6) The jet pump, heating system and all internal plumbing will achieve a partial prime as the spa is
filled. To check the operation of the jet system and to remove any remaining air from the
plumbing system, follow these steps:
a) All Models: Push the Pump 1 button a second time to turn the pump to high
speed. Allow to run for 1 minute.
b) Signature, Ultra,Epic, and Legend series: Push Pump 2 button also. This pump runs at high speed
only. Run for one minute.
c) Legend and Epic series: Push Pump 3 also. This pump runs at high speed only. Run for one
minute. Once the jet system is fully operational (as indicated by strong, non-surging jets),
priming of the spa is complete. Push each Pump button once to turn the pumps off.
d) Epic Series push pump #4 and #5 buttons once to turn on and run for one minute.
IMPORTANT: Weak or surging jets are an indication of a low water level, a clogged filter cartridge, or
an improperly adjusted filter weir.
7) Adjust the chemicals and balance the water according to your dealer’s instructions. A guideline
is also included in this manual, under the Water Maintenance Section.
8) Set the temperature control to the desired temperature (between 100ºF and 104ºF (38ºC and
40ºC), then place the insulated cover on the spa and allow the water temperature to stabilize
(approximately 16 hours). Make sure you secure the cover in place using the cover locks.
Periodically check the spa water temperature.
9
When the water temperature climbs above 85ºF (29ºC), proceed to the next step.
9) Test and Adjust Sanitizer level (Chlorine ideal 1 - 3 ppm or Bromine ideal 3 - 5 ppm).
10) Rotate diverters to centre position and press “Pump 2” button on topside control panel for 5 seconds to activate the “Boost filtration system”. When this system is enabled,
“boo” is displayed on the screen. This will give 45 min of circulation and filtration to
disperse the chemicals.
11) You can set the temperature (between 38°C and 40°C or 100°F to 104°F) by pressing the
TEMP ( ) and TEMP ( ) buttons on the control panel. The spa will normally come
up to temperature within 16 to 24 hours. Replace the spa cover while the temperature is
reaching the set point.
IMPORTANT: For safety, you can lock your desired temperature setting.
Refer to the Topside Control Panel section for details.
CAUTION!
Do Not turn on power
to the spa until the spa
is filled to the required
level. Running the spa
pump without water
could cause immediate
damage and invalidate
your warranty!

Spa Overview
Arctic Chiller
The arctic chiller has no Freon, compressors, pumps or refrigeration mechanics.
1. Remove one access panel and attach the chiller in its place.
2. Lower the temperature on your spa to the desired setting.
Note: Do not leave the cover off of the spa in direct sunlight, this can lead to heat distress and void your warranty.

Spa Care and Maintenance
Your Arctic Spa® is manufactured from the highest quality, most durable materials available. Even so, the spa care
and maintenance program you develop will ultimately determine how long your spa and its individual components
will last. Regular maintenance following the advice in this section will help you to protect your investment.
IMPORTANT: Before performing any maintenance on your spa, make a visual inspection of the spa to get an
understanding of what condition it may be in and if anything looks out of the ordinary. If any part appears to be
damaged, loose or missing, do not proceed. Contact your Factory Authorized Dealer immediately.
Draining the Water
Detergent residues and dissolved solids from bathing suits and chemicals will gradually accumulate in your spa’s water. Normally, in about three to four months the water will become
difficult to balance and should be replaced. Showering without using soap prior to entering
the spa or using only the rinse cycle when laundering your bathing suit will help to reduce
detergent residue in the spa water. However, foam problems are more likely to be caused by
a build up of organic pollutants in the spa, mostly from body oils. If you’re using your spa
frequently with a high bather load the water will need to be replaced more often. Spa water
gradually loses quality because of build-ups of unfilterable pollutants.
IMPORTANT: Remember to change your water every three to four months.
To Drain Your Spa:
1. Shut off the GFCI /RCD breaker located in the sub panel or the quick disconnect.
2. Locate the main drain valve for the spa, on the outside of the cabinet to the right of the
equipment compartment. Attach the male threaded end of a garden hose to the drain valve, and route the other end of the hose to an appropriate draining area. * If your hot tub has a synthetic
cabinet, the drain valve is located behind one of the panels. You will need to remove the exterior
panel to access the drain valve.
3. Open the valve by turning the large outside ring counterclockwise. The spa will drain by
gravitational flow.
Note: All Arctic Spas® models will drain through the floor drain. Equipment such as the pump(s) and heater will drain. All models will leave a small amount of water in the foot well. Any water remaining in the plumbing or equipment after draining will only need to be removed if the
spa is being winterized.
4. When empty, inspect the spa shell and clean as required.
5. Close the drain valve.
6. Refill the spa BEFORE restoring power.
IMPORTANT: With reusable filters, it is necessary to rinse the filter cartridges weekly. Every month,
and each time the spa is drained for cleaning, clean the cartridges in filter cleaner. (With Arctic
Spas disposable filters, simply replace the cartridge whenever the spa is drained, or about every three
months).
16
Filtration System
The use of Clarifiers and Foam inhibitors is not recommended with disposable filters!
Arctic Spas® are equipped with balanced filtration, meaning that the filter cartridges are sized to
meet the needs of the pump system. As with any water filtering system, the filter cartridge may become clogged,
resulting in reduced water flow. It is important to maintain a clean, unobstructed filter system. We recommend
that your filter cartridge be replaced with an Arctic Pure® disposable filter cartridge every three (3) months.
Filter Cartridge Removal and Installation
1. Put the spa in Standby mode using the on/off button on the topside control panel.
2. Remove the telescoping filter cylinder
3. Unscrew the filter cartridge and either clean the reusable filter or discard the disposable filter.
4. Re-thread the clean or new filter.
5. Replace the telescoping filter cylinder.
Care of Spa Pillows
The spa pillows used in many of the Arctic Spas® models will provide years of comfort if treated with care.
They have been positioned above the water level to minimize the bleaching effects of chlorinated water and
other spa water chemicals. To extend their life, whenever the spa shell is being cleaned, the spa pillows should be
removed and cleaned. Body oils can be removed with a mild soap and water solution. ALWAYS rinse off the spa
pillows thoroughly to remove any soap residue. The pillows can be conditioned with Arctic Pure® Cover Renew
cleaner after cleaning. If the spa is not going to be used for a long period of time (that is, during a vacation or if
the spa is being winterized), or when the spa water is being super-chlorinated, the spa pillows should be removed
until the next use of the spa.
To remove and replace the spa pillows:
1. Pull the pillow directly upwards until it is fully extended. Next to the acrylic of the shell, there is
a button that you press to allow you to pull the pillow upwards and out completely.
2. To reinstall the spa pillow, push the button and carefully insert pillow.
Care of the Spa Shell
Your Arctic Spa® has a fiberglass reinforced, Lucite® cast acrylic shell. Stains and dirt generally will not adhere
to your spa’s surface. A soft cloth or sponge should easily remove most dirt. Most household chemicals are harmful to your spa’s shell. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or vinegar can also be used for minor surface cleaning.
Always thoroughly rinse off any spa shell cleaning agent with fresh water.
Service Notes:
1. Iron and copper in the water can stain the spa shell if allowed to go unchecked. Your Arctic Spas® Dealer stocks Arctic Pure® Best Defence to use if your spa water has a high concentration
of dissolved minerals.
2. The use of alcohol or any household cleaners other than those listed to clean the spa shell surface is NOT recommended. DO NOT use any cleaning products containing abrasives or solvents since they may damage the shell surface. Damage to the shell by the use of harsh chemicals is
not covered under the warranty.
17
MANUAL SAFETY COVER
Care of the Spa Cover
WARNING: The cover is a manual safety cover that meets or exceeds all prevailing requirements of
ASTM Standards for spa safety covers when installed and used correctly as of the date of manufacture.
Non-secured or improperly secured covers are a hazard. Open the cover to its fully open position before
use. Be sure to inspect the cover for premature wear or deterioration. Over time, with use, there is a
chance of normal cover wear and deterioration. To properly maintain your cover see directions below.
Vinyl Cover
The vinyl spa cover is an attractive, durable foam insulation product. Monthly cleaning and
conditioning is recommended to maintain its beauty.
To clean and condition the vinyl cover:
1. Remove the cover from the spa and gently lean it against a wall or fence.
2. With a garden hose, spray the cover to loosen and rinse away dirt or debris.
3. Using a large sponge and/or a soft bristle brush, and using a very mild soap solution or baking soda, scrub the vinyl top in a circular motion. Do not let the vinyl dry with a soap film on it before it can be rinsed clean.
4. Scrub the cover’s perimeter and side flaps. Rinse clean with water.
5. Rinse off the underside of the cover with water only (use no soap), and wipe it clean with a dry rag.
6. To condition the cover after cleaning, apply a thin film of Arctic Pure® Cover Renew to the
vinyl surface and buff.
Care of the Spa Cabinet
Cedar Cabinet: When properly cared for, the wood cabinet of your spa will maintain its beauty for
many years. Your Arctic Spa cabinet has been specially treated with Olympic Maximum Wood Stain.
Use this stain or a similar product on a regular basis to protect the wood of the cabinet and keep your
spa looking great for years to come.
Forever FlexTM Cabinet: Wash with soap and water. (no harsh chemicals)
18
LED Light Replacement
All Arctic Spas® come equipped with two 12 volt multicolored
underwater lights for night use. The Family Light Package option
comes with five lights. Should you need to change any light, follow
these simple steps:
1. Make sure the lighting is turned off, by checking the
topside be sure the light icon is not showing.
2. Remove the screws securing the equipment access doors;
remove the doors.
3. Locate the reflector, which is secured into the light housing.
Carefully rotate the reflector counter-clockwise until it comes off the light housing.
4. Carefully disconnect any cables (note the location of the cable(s), as the LED assembly has two
sockets) and remove the light assembly from its socket or slot.
5. Install the new LED assembly in its slot or socket, then reconnect the cables.
6. To reinstall the underwater light, rotate the lamp assembly clockwise onto the light housing
until secure.
If your Ultimate Lights quit working call your closest authorized service provider.
Vacation Care Instructions
If you plan to be away from home for 7 - 14 days, follow these instructions to ensure that the water
quality of your spa is maintained.
1. Adjust pH as needed.
2. Ensure you have sufficient sanitizer to last until you return.
3. Shock the spa with Arctic Pure® Boost or Refresh.
4. Lower the temperature.
Upon your return:
1. Shock the spa with Arctic Pure® Boost or Refresh.
2. Ensure you have sufficient sanitizer for regular use.
3. Return the temperature to its original setting. You can use your spa once the residual sanitizer
level falls within the ideal range.
Note: If you will not be using your spa for more then 14 days and a neighbor, friend or an outside
maintenance service is not available to check and balance the water chemistry, draining or
winterizing (for winter only) the spa is recommended.
Winterizing Your Spa
If you plan to leave your spa unused for a long period of time in severely cold weather, you should
drain the spa to avoid accidental freezing due to a power or equipment failure.
We recommend your local authorized dealer winterize your spa. Freezing can severely damage your spa.
Improper winterizing of your spa can void your warranty.
Aquatremor®, Aquatemor® Deluxe or WetTunes® Stereo (Optional)

Water Maintenance
It’s important to have clean water. Water maintenance is one of the least understood, but very important
areas of spa ownership. Your dealer can guide you through the process of achieving and maintaining
perfect water in your spa, given your local conditions. Your program will depend on your water’s mineral content, how often you use your spa, and how many people use it. Here is our suggested step-by-step
program:
General Information
There are three fundamental areas of water maintenance. They are (1) Water Filtration, (2) Water Sanitation, and (3) Chemical Balance/pH Control.
Although your spa’s filter system is working several hours a day to remove particles from your water, it
does not remove bacteria or viruses. Water sanitation is the responsibility of the spa owner. It can be
achieved through the regular and periodic (daily, if necessary) addition of an approved sanitizer. The
sanitizer will chemically control the bacteria and viruses present in the spa water. Bacteria and viruses
can grow quickly in under sanitized spa water. The water’s chemical balance and pH control are also the
responsibility of the spa owner. You will have to add chemicals to maintain proper levels of Total Alkalinity (TA), Calcium Hardness (CH) and pH. Proper water balance and pH control will minimize scale
buildup and corrosion of metals, extend the life of the spa, and allow the sanitizer to work at maximum
efficiency.
For Onzen System: Please refer to your Onzen User Guide for direction in water maintenance.
Methods For Testing The Spa Water
Accurate water testing and analysis are an important part of effectively maintaining your spa water. To
follow the Arctic Spas® recommended program, you must have the ability to test for:
• Total Alkalinity (TA)
• Calcium Hardness (CH)
• pH
• Sanitizer
Although reagent liquid test kits provide the highest level of accuracy, Test Strips are the most convenient testing method used by many spa owners. Keep in mind that test strips are susceptible to heat and
moisture contamination, which will result in inaccurate readings. Very high sanitizer levels will also
render test strips unreliable.
IMPORTANT: Always read and carefully follow the directions included with the Test Kit or Test Strips
to ensure the accuracy of the test results.
Hints For Successful Water Testing
When using the reagent test kit:
• Always take water samples 30-45 cm (12” - 18”) below the water surface.
20
• Rinse the test cells before and after each use.
• Do not dispose of test samples into the spa water.
• When adding drops of chemicals from the kit (the reagents) into the test block, hold the bottle vertically and add the drops slowly to be sure the correct quantity is used.
• The reagents should be replaced on a yearly basis to maintain the accuracy of the test results.
Basic Chemical Safety
When using chemicals, read the labels carefully and follow directions precisely. Though chemicals
protect you and your spa when used correctly, they can be hazardous in concentrated form. Always
observe the following guidelines:
• ALWAYS KEEP CHEMICALS OUT OF CHILDREN’S REACH.
• NEVER MIX CONCENTRATED CHEMICALS TOGETHER.
• ALWAYS THOROUGHLY RINSE ANY CONTAINER USED TO MIX CHEMICALS
AFTER USE.
• ALWAYS RINSE OUT ANY EMPTY CHEMICAL STORAGE CONTAINER BEFORE
DISPOSAL.
• Accurately measure the quantities specified. Do not overdose your spa. Amount required
will vary depending on water condition, quantities to be used are only guidelines.
• Store chemicals in a cool, dry, well ventilated place.
• Always keep chemical containers closed when not in use.
• Don’t inhale fumes or allow chemicals to come in contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth.
Wash your hands immediately after use.
• Follow the emergency advice on the product label in case of accidental contact.
• Never smoke around chemicals. Some fumes can be flammable.
• Don’t store any chemicals in the spa equipment compartment.
Adding Chemicals to the Spa
Most chemicals (does not include any slow dissolving chemicals) can be added directly to the spa while
the pump(s) is running on high speed, for a minimum of 10 minutes.
IMPORTANT WHEN USING ARCTIC PURE® BOOST OR REFRESH TREATMENT
NOTE: After administering a super chlorination treatment or non-chlorine shock to your spa, leave
the cover open for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow the oxidizer gas to vent. A high
concentration of trapped oxidizer gas which may exist as a result of the shock treatment (not daily sanitation) may eventually cause discoloration or vinyl degradation to the bottom of the cover. This type of
damage is considered chemical abuse and is not covered under warranty.
The Arctic Pure® Water Maintenance Program
Following the Arctic Pure® water maintenance program will save you time and frustration and ensure
clear, clean spa water.
Remove Excess Minerals
Most tap water has minerals such as Calcium, Copper, Iron, Manganese and Sodium in it, and the
21
circulation of water can cause the erosion of metals from spa equipment which can present possible
scaling and staining problems in your spa. Cases of source water with high minerals (such as some well
water):
1. We recommend you add 3 1/2 tablespoons (48 grams) of Arctic Pure® Best Defense per 1000
litres (265 gallons) of water while filling your spa.
2. Also, as water evaporates from your spa and new water is added, the amount of dissolved
minerals will increase. The spa water may eventually become “hard” (Calcium Hardness too high) enough to damage the heater by calcifying its surface. To protect against these problems add 1 tablespoon (14 grams) per 1000 litres (265 gallons) of Arctic Pure® Best Defense weekly.
Balance the Total Alkalinity (TA)
1. The recommended Total Alkalinity (TA) for your spa water is 80-120 ppm.
2. Total Alkalinity is a measure of the total levels of carbonates, bicarbonates, hydroxides, and other alkaline substances in the water. TA is referred to as the water’s “pH buffer”. In other words, it’s a measure of the ability of the water to resist changes in pH level.
3. If the TA is too low, the pH level will fluctuate widely from high to low. Fluctuations in pH can cause corrosion or scaling of the spa components. Low TA can be corrected by adding Arctic PureTM Perfect Balance.
4. If the Total Alkalinity is too high, the pH level will tend to be high and may be difficult to bring down. The pH can be lowered by using Arctic Pure® Adjust Down.
5. Once the TA is balanced, it normally remains stable, although some sanitizers, and the addition of more water with a high or low alkalinity will raise or lower the TA reading of the water.
6. When the Total Alkalinity is within the recommended range, proceed to the next step.
Balancing the pH
1. We recommended a pH range for your spa water of; 7.2-7.6.
2. The pH level is the measure of acidity and alkalinity. Values above 7 are alkaline; those below 7 are acidic. Maintaining the proper pH level is extremely important for:
• Optimizing the effectiveness of the sanitizer.
• Maintaining water that is comfortable for the user.
• Preventing equipment deterioration.
• Preventing cloudy or odorous water.
3. If the spa water’s pH level is too low, the following may result:
• The sanitizer will dissipate rapidly.
• The water may become irritating to spa users.
• The spa’s equipment may corrode.
If the pH is too low, it can be increased by adding Arctic Pure® Adjust Up to the spa water.
4. If the pH level is too high, the following may result:
• The sanitizer is less effective.
• Scale will form on the spa shell surface and the equipment.
• The water may become cloudy.
22
If the pH is too high, it can be decreased by adding Arctic Pure® Adjust Down to the spa water.
5. It is important to check the pH on a regular basis. The pH will be affected by the bather load, the addition of new water, the addition of various chemicals, and the type of sanitizer used.
6. When the pH is within the recommended range, proceed to the final step.
Calcium Hardness (CH)
1. Most spa manufacturers recommend a Calcium Hardness (CH) level for your spa of 150-200
ppm. However, we do not recommend adding calcium to your spa if your spa water is above
100 ppm, or if your incoming water has a very low level of calcium hardness.
2. Calcium Hardness is a measure of the total amount of dissolved calcium in the water. It is
believed that calcium helps control the corrosive nature of water. Calcium has a tendency to
precipitate (fall out of suspension) in high temperatures and high pH levels.
Warning: When calcium falls out of suspension it can collect on the heater and pump, and
shorten their life.
3. Any natural corrosiveness in the water can be combatted by maintaining a slightly higher Total Alkalinity Level.
Sanitize the Spa
Sanitizer is extremely important for killing algae, bacteria and viruses, and preventing unwanted organisms from growing in the spa. At the same time, you don’t want too high a sanitizer level, or it can
irritate your skin, lungs and eyes.
1. Always maintain the sanitizer level in your spa at the recommended level for each type of
sanitizer.
2. We recommend the following sanitizers:
Chlorine System:
• Arctic Pure® Chlorine Tablets
• Arctic Pure® Refresh
• Arctic Pure® Boost
Bromine System:
• Arctic Pure® Brominating Tablets
• Arctic Pure® Refresh
• Arctic Pure® Peak Boost
Important: Sanitizers are acidic and will decrease the Total Alkalinity. Regular testing and balancing of
TA is extremely important with these products.
Important: Always remove the floating dispenser while the spa is in use. Remove dispensers with a
plastic bucket (keeping submerged) and store out of reach of children until spa use has ended.
Using Chlorine System
CAUTION: The use of personal protective equipment (rubber/latex/vinyl gloves, eye protection) is
recommended while handling the dispenser or the pucks.
23
Start-up:
1. Add pucks to floating dispenser and open to setting 4.
2. Add 7 tablespoons (100 grams) of Arctic Pure® Refresh per 1500 litres (396 gallons) of water.
3. Add 1 tablespoon (14 grams) of Arctic Pure® Spa Boost per 1000 litres (265 gallons) of water.
4. Test the Chlorine level. Once the chlorine reads within the ideal range (1-3 ppm) turn tablet
dispenser down to 1 - 2 (more or less according to bather load).
5. Start the Boost Filtration mode to circulate the chemicals and do not use spa for two hours after
the mode ends.
Note: The above example is for a spa without an ozone system. If your spa is equipped with an ozone
system please contact your dealer for proper Chlorine levels.
Weekly:
1. Add pucks to floating dispenser and reset the setting if necessary.
2. Add 7 tablespoons (100 grams) of Arctic Pure® Refresh per 1500 litres (396 gallons) of water.
3. Wait at least one hour and add 1 tablespoon (14 grams) of Arctic Pure® Best Defence per 1000
litres (265 gallons) of water.
Important: Arctic Pure® Refresh significantly reduces pH and TA. One hour after adding Arctic Pure®
Refresh test and adjust TA and pH as needed.
Bromine System:
Note: If you are planning to use your new spa right away, Peak Boost must be added first. Follow directions
for adding Peak Boost from this page.
1. Fill floating dispenser with pucks and open to setting 7.
2. Add 7 tablespoons (100 grams) of Arctic Pure® Refresh per 1500 litres (396 gallons) of water.
3. Add 2 1/2 tablespoons (35 grams) of Arctic Pure® Peak Boost per 1000 litres (265 gallons) of
water, to establish a Bromide reserve.
4. Test the Bromine level. Once bromine reads within the ideal range (3-5 ppm) turn tablet
dispenser down to 2 or 3 (more or less according to bather load).
Note: The above example is for a spa without an ozone system. If your spa is equipped with an ozone
system please contact your dealer for proper Bromine levels.
Weekly
1. Twice a week test and adjust Total Alkalinity, pH and Chlorine or Bromine levels.

Troubleshooting Spa Problems
1. Nothing functions: The GFCI Breaker has tripped or there is a power failure. Test GFCI
Breaker. Turn breaker back on and see if spa powers up, if not contact your factory authorized dealer.
2. Spa does not heat: Check to see if the heat indicator is on or there are any error messages on the topside control panel. If the heat indicator is on and no error message appears contact your
factory authorized dealer.
3. Poor Jet Pressure: First check to see that the jet(s) are turned on fully. Check your filter to see
if it’s clogged or dirty. Next, check to see if the jet(s) are obstructed or if the venturi air dial is turned on. Finally, check to see if the jet(s) are surging. If so, your pump is cavitating (sucking in air). This usually occurs when the water level is too low and can be solved by adding water to the spa. If the problem still persists, contact your factory authorized dealer.
4. Light is not functioning: Follow the LED replacement section.
5. Spa comes on by itself: This function is normal when heating and filtering. No action required.
6. Spa doesn’t drain completely: The spa is drained by gravity. It will not always drain fully. It is not necessary to drain the spa in its entirety except when winterizing the spa. If you wish to remove the last little bit of water, we recommend you vacuum it out with a wet/dry vacuum.
