SITE PREPARATION

ABOVE-GROUND INSTALLATIONS

Where the swim spa is a ”stand-alone“ above-ground installation to be installed in regions where freeze/thaw conditions may occur, a level patio stone or pre-formed paver type base may be sufficient if there is no abutting deck(s) that could be damaged during potential seasonal movement of the ground. The potential drawback to this type of base is that splash water could eventually de-stabilize the ground under the base, with the resultant shift of the support base causing damage to the swim spa structure.

For best results, we recommend the installation of a LEVEL concrete pad:

• Dig out and level the ground 20-30 cm (8-12 in.) below

your desired base level

• Install 10-15 cm (4-6 in.) of crushed stone

• Next, install 10-15 cm (4-6 in.) of poured concrete

• Level the concrete and apply a broom-type finish

In regions where freeze/thaw occurs, or where there will be custom decking abutting the swim spa, we recommend the installation of poured concrete footings extending below the frost line beneath the pad to prevent the possibility of future shifting.

FOOTINGS

IN-GROUND & PARTIAL IN-GROUND INSTALLATIONS

• When recessing the swim spa all or part way below

ground level, a concrete base along with a concrete or wood

retaining wall to hold back the earth is suggested.

This forms a box or ’bunker‘, in which the swim spa

is placed. Hydropool does not recommend back-filling

full in-ground or partial in-ground installations without

the backfillable frame accessory.

• It is recommended leaving a 61 cm (24 in) wide

crawl-space around the entire unit to ensure adequate

accessibility.

• ALWAYS ensure that there is good drainage, via a

properly designed French (gravel) drain system and/or a

sump pump, to prevent ground water flooding damage to

the support equipment or structure swim spa

• Install protective waterproof conduit to house light, or

topside control cables that will be buried

• Access for future service must be considered at the time

of design and installation. Difficult access can result

in supplemental service labour charges not covered by

the factory warranty. Consider easily removable deck

materials.

ACCESSORIES

When unpacking your new Hydropool swim spa, you will find an accessories bag inside containing:

• all necessary o-rings/gaskets

• gate valve stem locks

• filter cover

• #10 expansion plug (for skimmer when draining)

• Aquacord swim tether (Aquatrainer & Aquasport only)

• chrome decorative lip trim

CORNER WRAP PILLOW

The corner wrap pillows are pre-installed at the factory and are attached via pins. To remove, grasp ends of pillow and pull out from hot tub seat. To re-install, reverse procedure.

Although the pillows are designed to remain in-place in the swim spa, to extend the life of the pillows, remove after each use.

AQUACORD TETHER SYSTEM

Sould you desire a tether resistance swim or excercise, simply lift the cap of the Aquacord tether anchor and slip one end of the Aquacord onto the anchor and the other around your waste. Adjust the Aquacord length so that your extended arm has at least 46 cm (18 in.) of clearance from the end of the swim spa.

FILTER COVER

The filter cover provides that finishing touch to your Hydropool swim spa.

To install simply place over the filter opening.

WATERFALL PILLOWS (FX model only)

If you received the optional waterfall package, remove the blade from the waterfall receiver fitting in the hot tub (already installed at the factory). Insert the waterfall blade through the front of the special waterfall pillow. The front flange of the waterfall blade will be recessed into the front of the pillow. If it is not recessed, the blade needs to be removed and re-inserted through the opposite side of the pillow. Push the pillow into the semi-circular recess, ensuring that the portion of the blade protruding out of the back of the pillow inserts firmly into the waterfall receiver fitting.

HYDROPOOL SWIM SPA SERIES CONTROL SYSTEMS

NORTH AMERICA AND EUROPE

HYDROPOOL AQUATRAINER

INITIAL START-UP

Before applying voltage to power-up your hot tub, it is very important that you understand the sequence of events that occur when the system is activated in order that the pumps can be primed efficiently and damage to the pumps can be avoided.

At initial power-up, this display will appear, and the system will show 4 sets of numbers in succession (ie. 100 then 114 then 28 then 240). These numbers represent the current software revision, and the system input voltage.

Flashing

After the initial software indicators are shown, this display will appear. This display is indicating that the system is in PUMP

PRIMING MODE. This mode will last for

4 to 5 minutes before automatically exiting and entering the normal operation mode. You can also manually exit the PUMP

PRIMING MODE after the pumps are primed.

While in this mode, the heater circuit is disabled to allow the priming process to be completed without the possibility of energizing the heater element during low flow or no flow conditions. The system will not automatically activate any of the functions, however, by pushing the pads on the topside control, the pumps can be manually activated to facilitate priming.

Definition: ‘Priming’ a pump is a term used to describe the process in which air trapped in the plumbing and pump wet-end (referred to as an ‘air lock‘) is released, allowing the pump to move water efficiently through the plumbing system and to the jets.

PUMP PRIMING MODE

Pump Icon(s)

Flashing

As soon as PRIMING MODE is indicated on the topside panel, push the left pad to start Pump 1 in low speed, then again to switch to high speed. Push the center pad and right pad to start

Pump 2 and *Pump 3 respectively

(*Titanium Series only). These are both single speed - high only. All of the pumps will now be operating in high speed to facilitate priming.

See FILLING, CHECKING AND STARTING YOUR HOT TUB for complete instructions on pump priming.

Once pump priming has been successfully completed, press the pads to turn off the pumps. Next, manually exit PRIMING MODE by pressing either the pad or the

pad. If you do not manually exit Priming Mode, it will automatically terminate after 4 to 5 minutes. Be sure that the pumps have been primed before exiting this mode.

After you manually exit or the system automatically exits

PRIMING MODE, your hot tub will automatically heat to the factory preset default temperature of 38˚C (100˚F). The topside panel will briefly show the default temperature, and then the display will appear as follows:

Note that the water temperature is not

JET WATER FLOW ADJUSTMENT

Your Hydropool swim spa features adjustable water flow on specific hydrotherapy jets.

To reduce the flow: grasp the outer flange of the jet, and turn clockwise approximately a 1/4 turn. When it hits the stop, the jet is considered closed, and flow will be restricted.

To increase the flow: from the closed position, turn the jet counter-clockwise approximately 1/4 turn. When it hits the stop, the jet is open, and there is maximum jet flow. Do not attempt to turn the jet past the stop, as this will unclip the jet internal from the socket. All Hydropool swim spas are shipped from the factory with the jets in the open position.

INTERCHANGING JET INSERTS

A great feature for custom tailoring the jets in your

Hydropool swim spa to suit your personal hydrotherapy needs. Jets of like size and dimension may be interchanged with each other, for example, if you wished to swap a

Poly Storm Directional jet for a Poly Storm Twin Roto jet, or a Mini Storm Twin Roto jet for a Mini Storm Directional jet.

JET AIR FLOW ADJUSTMENT

Your Hydropool swim spa features adjustable air flow on specific hydrotherapy jets. To reduce the flow: turn the handle on the air control clockwise. When it hits the stop, the air is closed, and air flow will be restricted.

To increase the flow: turn the handle on the air control counter-clockwise. When it hits the stop, the air control is fully opened. For maximum operating efficiency, the air controls must remain closed when your swim spa is not in use.
