I) FILL YOUR SPA
Wipe the interior of the spa with a damp, soft
cloth to remove any residue that may be on the
surface. Fill with a garden hose. As the spa is fillmg, check in the equipment accessarea for any
leak5. On occasion, it may be necessary to hand

loose during transit. Also check that the gate
valves are pulled out to the open position and
that the hose bib is closed. Continue

SETTING THE RUN TIME
The outer ring of the timer is comprised of a series

toward the edge of the timer. Each pin represents
fifteen minutes. When the pins are slid in towards
the center of the timer the low speed pump will
run. When they are slid to the outer edge the low
speed is off. The minimal amount of run time recommended per day is four hours. The low speed
pump is used for mtration and maintaining the

Your VITA SPA is manufactured with the highest
quality and most durable materials available. A
spa care and maintenance program is recommended to increase your comfort, maintain the
spa's reliability and protect your investment.
1. DRAINING YOUR SPA
Detergent residues from bathing suits as well as
soap film from your body may gradually accumulate in the water. Foam inhibitors will suppress the foam but will not remove the soap from
the water. Eventually, the soap build-up in the
water will concentrate enough to leave an
unclean feeling on the user's skin, cause sudsing
and make the water impossible to clarify.
Depending on the amount of soap input, the spa
water should last between two and three months.
To drain your Spa:
A. Turn the power off at the GFCI breaker.

2. WINTERIZING
YOUR SPA
Your VITA SPA has been designed and engineered for year-round use in any climate.
A. If the spa will not be used, drain it completely
following
t11e instructions on //DRAINING
THE SPA./f
B
If you intend to use the spa during the winter,
keep the spa warm and set the timer to bring
the pump on at night and a couple hours during the day. It is recommended to set the timer
to FREEZE PROTECfION (See pg. 6) when
the temperahIre drops below 30 F. This will
keep the low-speed pump running 24 hours
per day and protect against potential freezing
of pipes. Note that accidental freezing could
result due to prolonged power failures.
3. FILTER MAINTENANCE
Vita Spas are designed with,the most efficient top
loading filtration system in the industry. Filter
maintenance is the most critical factor in keeping
your spa water clean.
To clean the filter: .
(NOTE: Never run spa without filter)
c. Use a rag to remove any debris at the bottom
of the filter housing. Replace the cartridge.
D. We recommend the use of a spare filter. This
way one can be soaking and cleaning while
you continue to enjoy the use of your spa.
4. REDWOOD CA~INET MAINTENANCE
Your VITA SPA cabinet is made with a high quality redwood. It ~. factory stained and sealed.
Depending on the ~ocation and exposure of the
spa to the rain and sun, it is recommended to seal
the redwood cabinet once or twice a year with a
wood sealant. Vita's specially formulated redwood sealer is available at your vrrA SPA dealer.
5. MARINE VINYL COVER
Your cover is manufactured from a durable
marine grade, U.V. resistant material. Even SO,
monthly cleanmg and periodic conditioning is
recommended to maintain its beauty. To clean
and condition the vinyl cover:
A. Lightly spray the cover with a garden hose to
rinse it and remove the debris.

GENERAL
GUIDELINES
QUALITY
ulating the amount of tablets, the amount the
floater js open, and the length of the filtration
cycles, you can control the amount of bromine in
your spa. A bromine residual of 2 to 3 ppm is generally considered desirable. A two-part bromine
system or granular chlorine ( dichlor) are also
acceptable sanitizers.
FOR WATER
MAINTENANCE
Maintaining water quality within specific limits
will enhance your enjoyment and prolong the life
of the spa. Safe, comfortable, and clean spa water
is a fairly simple task to achieve, but it does
require regular attention becauseof the numerous
factors that can alter it. There is no one forn1ula to
be followed because of the variables, i.e. quality
of the water used to fill the spa, water temperature, user load, etc. For specific guidelines for
water quality maintenance, consult your VITA
SF41\dealer who can assist you i,o develop a program based on your specific nee~s. Disregard for
water maintenance will result in poor soaking
conditions, damage your spa inv~stment and pos~ibly void your warranty.

pH CONTROL
pH is a measure of acidity and alkalinity of the
spa water. The recommended pH for spa water is
7.4 to 7.6 ppm. Below 7.0 ( considered neutral), the
spa water is acidic and can cause damage to the
heating system. Above 7.8, the water is too alkaline and can result in cloudy water and scale formation on the spa shell, heater and cover.
