should not operate. Now open the service door, push the reset button on the GFCI and close the service door. The product
should now operate normally. If the product fails to operate in this manner, there is a ground current flowing indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Disconnect the power until the fault has been identified and corrected.
6. 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.
7. 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. Never replace a suction fitting with one rated less than the flow rate marked on the
original fitting.
8. 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 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.
9. 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 hot tub.
10.WARNING-To reduce the risk of injury:
a)
The water in a hot tub should never exceed 40°C (104°F). Water temperatures between 38°C (100°F) and 40° C (104°)
are considered safe for a healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are recommended for young children and when hot
tub use exceeds 10 minutes.
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 hot tub water temperatures to 38° C (100° F).
c)
Before entering a hot tub, 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 hot tub use may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of
drowning.
e)
Obese persons and persons with a history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system problems, or
diabetes should consult a physician before using a hot tub.
f)
Persons using medication should consult a physician before using a hot tub since some medication may induce drowsiness while other medication may affect heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation.
11. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

LOCATION AND INSTALLATION
Your Shoreline Leisure Products™ hot tub has been conveniently designed to be used in either an indoor or outdoor setting. While your hot
tub was built to be used either indoors or outdoors, there are important things to remember in selecting your location.
Indoor Use Only
•
Humidity will not likely be a problem. However, just like in your bathroom, an exhaust fan would be a good idea.
•
No matter how careful you are, you will splash water, especially when exiting the hot tub. We suggest a tile or vinyl floor.
•
A self-draining floor is a great way to ease any worries about spilled water.
•
Remember that you'll need extra space to store the cover when it is removed. When using our handy cover-lift device, you should allow
for an extra 16" of clearance behind the hot tub.
•
The hot tub must be placed on a flat and level surface that does not move or shake.
•
You should consult with a builder or engineer to determine if your floor will support the hot tub weight. Remember, you must allow for
the hot tub, water and people in your total weight calculations.
•
Be sure your hot tub is secure from access to young children. Shoreline Leisure Products™ offers a locking hot tub cover, but we also
suggest keeping the hot tub room locked and off limits to children.
Outdoor Use Only
•
Place your hot tub on a solid, flat surface. We recommend a 4" thick reinforced concrete pad as the best surface.
•
Keep in mind natural elements such as wind, view, falling leaves, etc.
•
We recommend that you locate your hot tub in a locked fenced-in area to prevent access to the hot tub by children.
•
It is a good idea to have a contractor review your proposed site to see that there are no support problems.
Indoor or Outdoor Use
•
When installing the hot tub, provide for adequate drainage to prevent water from entering the equipment module area.
•
When installing the hot tub, enable access to the equipment module compartment that is located behind the door opening.
•
Never locate light switches or other electrical components within reach from inside your hot tub. The equipment module must remain
protected by the cover of the hot tub equipment compartment.
Wherever you locate your hot tub, you will need to have access to water in order to fill it. Any water spigot or faucet will work. Also, you will
need to be able to drain your hot tub periodically. Since your hot tub water will likely have chemicals in it, you won't want to drain your hot
tub on the lawn or into a garden. Be sure you can reach a garden hose from the hot tub to where you plan to drain the water. Never let water get on the equipment module that is located inside the equipment compartment of your hot tub. Finally, we suggest that you consult an
electrician prior to installation to be sure of power availability and cost.
RECOMMENDED SUPPORT

HOT TUB SET UP
SPA SETUP
Unpacking
1.
Completely unwrap your hot tub and dispose of the packaging materials.
2.
Remove any labels and tape that hold down various components within the hot tub.
3.
Clean any dirt or dust from the interior of your hot tub with a damp cloth. Remove any stubborn stains with a mild, non abrasive
liquid detergent. Never use an abrasive cleaner or scraper to clean the surface of your hot tub.
4.
Position the cover on the hot tub and install the locking tabs to the outside of the hot tub (instructions included with cover).
5.
Remove the cover of the equipment compartment to access the hot tub pump and control box. This cover is held in place with 4
screws.
Electrical
Be sure your electrician reads this section and any others relating to the electrical hookup of your hot tub.
A multi-terminal bonding connector, located on the equipment module, is provided to permit connection of a bonding wire between this
point and any accessible metal surface within 5 feet of the hot tub, as may be needed to comply with local requirements. The bonding
wire connecting this bonding connector to the accessible metal surfaces must be a solid, No. 8 AWG copper conductor. This bonding
connector may also be used to bond any field wired components.
All electrical connections to the equipment module must be accomplished by a qualified electrician in accordance with the National
Electrical Code and in accordance with any local electrical codes in effect at the time of installation. All electrical connections must be
made in accordance with the wiring information contained in this manual, or inside the field wiring access panel of the equipment module. National Electrical Code requires a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) at the power source. All 230-volt models require an
over-current protection device, GFCI, and minimum supply conductors rated at 50 amperes. Use copper conductors only. WARNING: Improper electrical connections or conductor sizing may cause the equipment module to operate improperly, create the potential
for an electrical hazard, and may void the warranty. CAUTION: Use only approved pressure-type wire splicing lugs or connectors
suitable for the size and type of wiring used.
WARNING: Do not turn ON the power to the hot tub unless it is filled with water and all valves are open. Be sure water level is at the
recommended point. If the power is ON, the system may start even though the controls were not activated. If the equipment module
is started without sufficient water in the hot tub, the system could be permanently damaged. Also, operating hot tub without sufficient
water could cause a fire.
Filling Your Hot Tub
Once the electric power has been connected, check the following while the power is OFF:
1.
Be sure all fittings to the support system are tight. Hand tighten only!
2.
Be sure the drain valve is closed.
3.
Your hot tub is equipped with 2 push/pull valves. There is one located before the suction side of the pump and one located after
the discharge side of your heater. Pull the push/pull valves OUT so they are open.
4.
Using a garden hose, fill with water to 2-4" above the skim filter. Always fill your hot tub with hard (not softened) water. Place the
end of the garden hose in the bottom of the tub, do not place hose into the skimmer filter. Do not overfill. After the hot tub is
filled, remove the garden hose.
5.
Check the equipment module area for water leaks. If there is water dripping, it is probably a loose connection at the equipment
module. You should re-check the tightness of the fittings and placement of the "O"-rings. If you cannot locate the source of the
water leak, contact your dealer.
6.
Check that the filter is positioned in the skim/filter system. To remove, refer to the "Cleaning your filter" section.
7.
Activate the power to your hot tub. Push the pump button on your controller until you hear the pump activate to HIGH speed.
Allow the pump to run on HIGH speed for 2 minutes to purge the system of air, then push the pump button until you hear the
pump switch to LOW speed.
5
HOT TUB OPERATION
Refer to the Control Manual operating instructions for the hot tub-side control unit.
Your Shoreline Leisure Products™ hot tub comes equipped with a variety of jets and water/air controls. Some of the jets allow you to
control the amount of water flow by rotating the face of the jet. Turning the face clockwise will reduce the water flow from the jet and
turning it counterclockwise will increase the water flow. In addition, some of the jets perform special tasks.
Air Control
Your hot tub comes equipped with an air control that is located on the top of your hot tub. If
you turn the air control open (counterclockwise) when the pump is on high speed, air will be
drawn through the Power Boost and Micro Swirl jets. The control regulates the airflow to the
jets. Turn the air control counterclockwise while the pump is on high speed and you will see
the jets produce added agitation. Turning the control clockwise will return the jets to wateronly operation.
Power Boost Jets
There are two types of Power Boost Jets, and they are interchangeable. Simply turn the
outer ring counterclockwise past the stop point. This disengages the jet, then gently pull
on the outside ring of the jet. The jet insert will pull away from the hot tub. Follow the
same procedure with another jet. You can customize your massage by switching the jets
in your hot tub. To reinstall, simply push the jet insert back into the jet cavity until it stops,
then rotate the jet clockwise until it snaps into place. Water flow through these jets can be
controlled by turning the outside face of the jet. Turning the trim ring clockwise will reduce
the water flow from the jet and turning it counterclockwise will increase the water flow.
Ozone Jet
In the foot well of your hot tub there is a small jet which allows ozone to be drawn into your
hot tub . With an ozonator installed, there will be a steady stream of small air bubbles coming from the ozone jet whenever the hot tub pump is in operation. Your hot tub is manufactured “ozone ready”, or plumbed to accept an ozonator should you decide to add one.
Please refer to the Ozone section on page 11 of this manual.
6
Micro Swirl Jets
Water flow through these jets can be controlled by turning the outside face of the jet.
Turning the
trim ring clockwise will reduce the water flow from the jet and turning it counterclockwise will increase
the water flow.
Soft Spray Jet
This grouping of jets is designed to give a soft massage over a larger area of your back. These are
also used as foot jets in the footwell of your hot tub.
Hot Tub Light
Red and blue colored light lenses are included with your hot tub. To install or
remove lenses simply push them on or pull them off from the light on the inside of
the hot tub.
To replace the hot tub light bulb, turn off all power to the equipment module. Locate the rear
of the hot tub light assembly and unscrew the lamp holder from the clear lens body. Pull the
bulb from the socket and replace by reversing the above steps. CAUTION: The replacement
bulb must be the same rating as the factory installed bulb (standard automotive type #912).
7
HOT TUB CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Draining Your Hot Tub
Under normal usage, you should change the water in your hot tub every 3-4 months.
To drain hot tubs equipped with the Quick Drain System, first turn off electrical power
to your hot tub. Unscrew the round cap in the center of the quick drain and attach a
garden hose. Turn the outer ring (or valve) 1/2 turn counterclockwise and pull it toward you to open it. To close, push it in and turn it clockwise 1/2 turn.
The remaining water in the hot tub can be scooped or sponged out and you are now
ready to clean the ABS plastic surface. Note: It is recommended that you not drain
water onto grass or vegetation since chemicals in the hot tub water may damage
them.
Cleaning The Hot Tub Surface
Your Shoreline Leisure Products™ hot tub is manufactured with a premium grade weatherable ABS. The quality finish
is durable and easy to clean and maintain. When the hot tub is empty, you can clean the surface by using a mild, nonabrasive liquid detergent, or specially formulated hot tub cleaner.
Thoroughly remove all residue from the cleaning
agent prior to refilling the hot tub. Do not use an abrasive brush or cleaning agent, as it will scratch the ABS finish. If
you have stubborn dirt or scum marks at the water line, use a hot tub cleaner and a scrub pad designed for use on plastic surfaces, which are available at your local hot tub dealership.
Power Boost and Micro Jets
The interchangeable Power Boost and Micro Jet inserts should be removed from time to time to clean off any accumulated hair, dirt deposits, etc. This will insure proper operation of the water flow control feature.
Thermal Hot Tub Cover
It is important that you properly care for your hot tub cover. Do not sit or stand on the
cover, as it will break. Do not let snow build up on your cover. Locking tie-down
straps are included with your cover and should be used to prevent access to the hot
tub by children. They will also help to prevent the wind from lifting the cover off your
hot tub. If your hot tub is located outdoors, it is important that the cover be installed on
the hot tub even if the tub has been drained. This will protect the hot tub shell from the
intense heat of the sun. Periodically clean your cover as described in the maintenance
and cleaning instructions provided with the cover. When handling your cover, take care not to drag it over rough surfaces that will scuff or tear the fabric. Always lift by the handles or use the cover lift device which is available from your
Shoreline Leisure Products™ dealer.
Hot Tub Exterior Care
The hot tub exterior is made of a specially formulated polyethylene plastic. It is very resistant to scratching and denting
and can be cleaned with a mild detergent or vinyl siding cleaner.
8
WINTERIZING
If you live in an area where the danger of freezing exists, you must take extra precautions to insure that your hot tub will operate
properly. If you plan to operate your hot tub throughout the winter, be sure that the thermostat is set to keep the water warm. If
you intend on closing down your hot tub for the winter, you should follow the winterizing procedures listed below:
1.
Drain the hot tub as explained in the "Draining Your Hot Tub" section.
2.
Be sure that all water is removed from the hot tub.
3.
Shut off all electrical power at the breaker box.
4.
Disconnect the unions from the equipment module to allow the water in the hot tub lines and equipment module to drain.
5.
Remove the drain plug on the pump housing to allow water to drain out of the pump. Replace the drain plug.
6.
Open all air controls to allow trapped water to drain through jets.
7.
Remove the filter element from the filter housing and see that the filter housing is dry. If water is left in the filter housing it
will freeze and cause the housing to crack.
8.
Using a wet/dry shop vac, vacuum out each of the lines at the point where you disconnected the unions from the equipment
module. Also, put the vacuum hose up against the face of each jet opening to vacuum out any water remaining in their supply lines.
9.
Cover your hot tub with your hot tub cover and be sure it is locked in place.
WARNING: Failure to maintain the proper chemical levels or properly winterize your hot tub may cause extensive damage to
components. Damage to components or the hot tub shell itself resulting from improper chemical maintenance or improper winterization will NOT be covered under warranty.

WATER CARE
Filter and Basket Change Procedure
1.
Turn off electrical power to the hot tub.
2.
Remove the floating weir and attached basket by turning counter clockwise to align the
flats and lift out in one piece.
3.
Lift the filter cartridge straight out of the filter housing.
4.
Clean the filter cartridge (see instructions).
5.
Separate the basket from the floating weir adapter by spreading the raised edge of the
basket away from the floating weir tab.
6.
Clean the basket. Avoid hitting the basket against objects to knock debris loose, as this
will break the basket.
7.
Re-attach the basket to the floating weir. Line up the tabs from the basket to indents in the
floating weir and gently snap into place.
8.
Replace the cleaned filter cartridge by placing it back in the filter housing.
9.
Replace the floating weir and attached basket assembly by lining up the flats and turning
clockwise.
10. Turn electrical power back on.
Cleaning the Filter Cartridge
Your Shoreline Leisure Products™ hot tub is equipped with what we believe is the finest filtering device available. We call it the Skim/
Filter system, and it is one of the few skimmers available which actually skims the water surface. When your hot tub is operating, watch
how the Skim/Filter bobs up and down with the water level. You'll notice a distinct whirlpool being drawn into the system, and floating
debris of all sizes will literally "fall" into the unit and be trapped by the filter. It is important that you keep your filter clean, and it is suggested that you clean the filter at least once per month. To clean your filter:
1.
Remove the filter cartridge according to the previous instructions.
2.
With a garden hose and nozzle or other high-pressure device, spray the cartridge clean with a jet stream of water. Work
top to bottom on each pleat. To remove collected suntan lotions and body oils that the spray will not remove, soak the
cartridge in a plastic container for at least an hour (overnight is ideal) using a commercial filter cleaner, a cup of trisodium
phosphate in five gallons of water, or a cup of dishwasher detergent in five gallons of water.
3.
If the filter is coated with algae, calcium carbonate, or minerals, soak it in a solution of one part muriatic acid to 20 parts
water until the solution stops bubbling. WARNING: Failing to remove oils and cleaning solution before acid soaking will
permanently restrict the water flow and ruin the filter prematurely.
4. Rinse again to remove oils and cleaning solution. Reinstall the cartridge and the floating weir/basket assembly.
Chemicals
Due to the warm temperatures in your hot tub, you should properly test and maintain your hot tub water for health and appearance reasons. Chemical imbalance can cause skin irritations, and dirty water is both unsightly and undesirable to soak in. With little effort you
can have clean water for your constant enjoyment. This is attained through the use of hot tub chemicals, a superb filter system and the
optional ozonator. Consult your dealer to set up a proper water treatment program that will best work with the equipment in your hot tub.
Be aware that the mineral content of hot tub water increases from water evaporation and with the addition of algaecidal and sanitizing
chemicals. If the mineral concentration of the water becomes too high, the minerals will precipitate and deposit on the hot tub, in the
filter, and on the heater. The water must be changed when the amount of dissolved solids becomes excessive. Algaecidal and sanitizing chemicals are either alkaline or acidic. Sodium and calcium hypochlorite are alkaline. Chlorine gas and practically all other dry chlorine products are acidic. Whichever type of chlorine is used, it is very important that the ph level be checked frequently and maintained
between 7.2 and 7.8.
CAUTION: Do NOT store hot tub chemicals near the equipment module because their corrosive fumes may cause damage. Change
the hot tub water frequently, typically every 3 to 4 months or when the water clarity and cleanliness can no longer be maintained by
chemical treatment. It is recommended that the total alkalinity of the hot tub water be kept from 80 to 100 parts per million (ppm) when
sodium or calcium hypochlorites are used, and 100 to 120 ppm when other dry chlorine products are used.
10
OZONE
The ozonator is a unit that contains an ultra-violet light. When the unit is activated, ozone is generated which is
drawn into the hot tub via the ozone jet. The ozone gas appears as tiny bubbles that come from the ozone jet which
is located near the front of the hot tub. The ozone coming into your hot tub purifies the water without the skin irritation and chemical smell that can occur with the use of chemicals. The ozone unit operates when the equipment
module is in the filtering mode.
Ozone is a gas which occurs in nature. The ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun creates ozone photochemically in
the outer limits of the atmosphere. Ozone is also created near ground level by lightning during electrical storms.
Ozone generators simulate the short wavelength ultraviolet radiation of the sun.
Oxygen molecules (O2) contained in the air passing through the ozone generator are energized and split into single
oxygen atoms (O1). These O1’s are highly reactive and combined with additional O2 form Ozone (O3). This photochemical method of producing ozone is safe and efficient.
Ozone has proven to be a very effective supplement for conventional chemicals to provide cleaner, healthier water
and to significantly reduce undesirable chemical by-products.

removal, or reinstallation of the product or any part. Under no circumstances shall GPM or its representatives be held liable for
injury to any person or damage to any property, however arising, even if caused by GPM or its representatives' negligence.
Some states do not allow limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts, and some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so these limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. These warranties give you specific legal rights,
and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. No distributor, salesperson, dealer, retailer, or other representative of GPM has the authority to alter or change these warranties either orally or in writing.
