bonding lug on the Power Pack which is provided for this purpose.
10. DANGER - Risk of Electrical Shock. Do not permit any electrical appliance,
such as a light, telephone, radio, or television, within 5 feet of spa or hot tub.
11. WARNING - To reduce risk of injury:
A. The water in a spa or hot tub should never exceed 104°F (40°C). Water
temperatures between 100°F (38°C) and 104°F (40°C) are considered
safe for a healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are recommended for
extended use (exceeding 10 minutes) and for young children.
5
User’s Guide
B. Since excessive water temperatures have a high potential for causing
fetal damage during the early months of pregnancy, pregnant or possible
pregnant women should limit spa or hot water temperatures to 100°F
(38°C).
C. Before entering a spa or hot tub, the user should measure the water
temperature with an accurate thermometer, since the tolerance of water
temperature-regulating devices varies.
D. WARNING: The use of alcohol or drugs can greatly increase the risk of fatal
hyperthermia in hot tubs and spas.
E. Hyperthermia Warning!
The causes, symptoms, and effects of hyperthermia may be described as
follows. Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body
reaches a level several degrees above the normal body temperature of 98.6ºF
(37ºC). The symptoms of hyperthermia include drowsiness, lethargy, and an
increase in the internal temperature of the body. The effects of hyperthermia
include:
(1) Unawareness of impending hazard;
(2) Failure to perceive heat;
(3) Failure to recognize the need to exit spa;
(4) Physical inability to exit spa;
(5) Fetal damage in pregnant women; and
(6) Unconsciousness and danger of drowning.
F. 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 using a spa or hot tub.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS
1. Never use an extension cord to connect the Power Pack to a power source. The
cord could cause a voltage drop which may cause damage to the control and
pump motor.
2. Always operate Power Pack with the cord mounted GFCI in place and
functional on 120 volt units. Failure to do so could result in a shock hazard.
3. Always operate spa with sufficient water. Water level must be above suction
inlets. Insufficient water will cause pump failure and void warranty.
4. Maintain proper water pH (7.4 - 7.6 is ideal). Failure to do so may cause
damage to vinyl liner, heater element, and damage will not be covered by
warranty.
5. Install spa only on floors or areas that can withstand repeated water exposure.
Equipment failure as well as splashing, filling and draining will spill water. If
located in a multi-story building, care must be taken to protect the objects on
the floors below.
6. Install only on floors that can withstand the floor loading of your spa. If in
doubt, please consult an architect or engineer to determine the floor rating
before filing. See specifications.
7. Do not open Power Pack or the GFCI. Opening either component will void the
warranty.
8. When storing, always drain all water from tub, plumbing and Power Pack,
especially in freezing temperature as freeze damage is not covered by warranty.
9. Always maintain proper water sanitation with chemicals and routine cleaning.
Warm water is an ideal place for bacteria to thrive. It’s your sole responsibility
to maintain proper water sanitation. Read the sections on water chemistry and
filter maintenance.
10. Never add water to chemicals. Always add chemicals to water to avoid strong
fumes or violent reactions that may result in hazardous chemical spray.

INSTALLATION
SITE PREPARATION
1. Structure: Your spa should always be installed on a structurally sound,
relatively smooth, and level surface.
2. Electrical: Your spa should be connected to a grounded outlet within
eight feet of the spa. For 120 V units, there should be easy access to the
plug for periodic testing of the cord mounted GFCI.
3. Bonding: A copper wire connector is located inside the spa power pack to
permit connection of a minimum No. 8 A.W.G. (No. 6 for Canada) solid
copper bonding conductor between any metal equipment, water pipe, or
metal enclosures within 5 feet of the spa as required to comply with the
National Electric Code, or local requirements.
INDOOR INSTALLATION
Give special consideration to the following issues when installing your spa
indoors.
1. Make sure the floor can support the total spa filled weight of 2113 pounds.
2. Install your spa on water resistant, non-slip floor. The floor should have
a drain to remove water splashed from the spa. Do not install the spa on
carpet or other material that will be damaged by moisture.
3. Take into consideration the room humidity which will exist due to
high temperatures. Providing natural or forced ventilation in the room
will help maintain comfort and minimize moisture damage to the
surrounding environment.
4. Avoid installing the spa indoors on a second story above finished living
space due to the possibility of water and humidity damage.
5. Allow enough clearance around the spa for full access to the spa
equipment for service.

Comfort Line Products
OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Your spa may be installed on any level, smooth surface that is strong enough
to support the filled unit. Observe the following considerations when
deciding where to place your spa:
1. Make sure there are no sharp objects under the spa.
2. Do not install the spa on grass or dirt, as this will greatly increase the
amount of debris entering the spa. Stepping stones or a solid wood 8 ft x
8 ft square platform, 5 to 9 inches in height, will provide a sufficient area
for installation.
3. Verify that there is adequate room to place the spa and permit safe access.
4. Check local code requirements for restrictions (fencing, enclosures, child
proof gates, etc.)

nozzle on the bottom inside wall of the spa behind the power pack.
If water is not flowing from the return nozzle, repeat the air bleeding
instructions provided in step 4. Unplug the power pack while bleeding
air.
NOTE:
If the air is not properly bled from the filter tank, the water
pump will be air bound and no water will flow. This will
prevent the spa from heating, and the water will not be
filtered. Make sure water is flowing from the return nozzle
before continuing.
6. Place the inflatable bladder cover on the
spa. Make sure the cover is centered on
the spa.
Always supervise children around bodies of water. The spa

automatically to maintain the desired temperature.
5. In case of electric power interruption, the spa temperature set point will
default to 100ºF when electric power is restored.
17
User’s Guide
Turbo Operation
To turn the turbo wave pump on or off, push the on/off button. Look to see
if the spa blows bubbles uniformly all the way around the spa. If action seems
to fade as bubbles circle the spa and are weak on one side, then the lower air
chamber is over-inflated. Let some air out of the lower chamber to correct
this. The turbo wave pump will automatically shut off after 15 minutes of
operation.
When the turbo wave blower system is activated, the blower pump is
pumping outside ambient air into the spa, creating much of the action
in the spa. Some cooling of the water will occur as the turbo wave blower
operates. This is normal and the heater will recover lost temperature after use.
Remember, at elevated temperatures, 15 minutes soaking time is considered
safe.
The spa power pack contains a filter to help keep the water in the spa
clean. If the filter becomes dirty or clogged, water flow through the power
pack will be restricted. This may prevent the spa from heating up. Refer to
the Maintenance section of this manual for information on checking and
cleaning the filter.
Cover
After use, place the cover on the spa. Lock the plastic clips in eight locations
on the outside of the spa.
Always leave the cover locked and in place when the spa is not
in use. The cover is not a replacement for adult supervision.
Always supervise young children in and around water.
NOTE:
18
The cover must be in place for the spa to heat up.

MAINTENANCE
Vinyl Care - Interior
1. While the spa is empty, clean the spa interior with a mild soap solution
to remove any soil or stains on the vinyl. Rinse thoroughly before refilling
the spa. Do not use cleaning aids such as steel wool, metal brushes, or
abrasive cleansers such as Comet or Ajax.
2. Remove and clean the filter twice a month, or more often if necessary.
Vinyl Care - Exterior
Clean the exterior with a mild soap solution then rinse with clean water.
Avoid abrasive soaps or tools, or any solvents.
The exterior of the spa as well as the thermal top is made to resist mildew and
discoloration.
Recommended Water Chemistry
Purchase a water test kit from your dealer. Test the water chemistry after each
use of the spa, or no less than once a week. Avoid a low pH. Low pH will
cause wrinkles to form in the vinyl, may damage the heater, and will void
your warranty. The following are the recommended water chemistry ranges
for your spa.
pH .......................................................... 7.4 - 7.6
Total alkalinity ................................ 80 - 120 ppm
Calcium hardness .......................... 150 - 250 ppm
Bromine residual ................................... 2 - 3 ppm
Total dissolved solids .................. below 1500 ppm
NOTE:
If a bromine feeder is used that requires holes to be
punched in the feeder, start with one hole punched at the
top of the feeder and one hole punched at the bottom.
Place the feeder in the spa and test the water after two
days. If the bromine level has not increased to the ideal
2-3 ppm range, punch another hole in the bottom of the
feeder and retest after another two days.
19
User’s Guide
Avoid punching too many holes in the bromine feeder, as
this could cause over bromination. This could bleach the
vinyl, and will void your warranty.
If the bromine level in the spa reaches 5 ppm or higher,
remove the bromine feeder from the spa until the bromine
level drops to the correct 2-3 ppm range.
Adding Chemicals
1. Always activate the turbo wave blower when adding chemicals to the spa.
Add only one chemical at a time.
Failure to properly dissolve or dilute chemicals prior to adding
them to the spa may damage the spa vinyl surfaces and will void
your warranty.
2. When adding chemicals, dip a few gallons of water from the spa into a
five gallon bucket. Dissolve or dilute the chemicals in the bucket. Stir the
bucket until the chemicals are fully dissolved or diluted. With the turbo
wave blower turned on, slowly pour the bucket into the spa in the stream
of the water jets.
3. Do not use gas chlorination, chlorine tablets, ionizers, scents, salts, or
soaps without consulting your authorized dealer.
Cleanliness
1. Drain and refill the spa every three months, or when the water becomes
cloudy and is not cleared by proper water chemistry.
2. Remove and clean your filter at least once a week. A dirty filter will
prevent water flow and may prevent the spa from heating.
Vinyl Repairs
If the vinyl is torn or punctured, repair it with the patch kit provided with
your spa. A secure, unnoticeable repair can usually be made. Additional vinyl
pieces may be obtained through your authorized dealer.

Winterizing and Vacationing
If you are taking a vacation or leaving your spa unused for more than a week,
you should take a few simple precautions. Leave the spa covered with the
plastic clips locked. Leave the turbo wave pump off and set the temperature
set point low. This will allow the water pump and heaters to turn on
occasionally to filter the water and protect it from freezing. Upon returning,
and before using the spa, check the bromine and pH levels.
Storing Your Spa
The spa may be stored in its original box. Make sure all water is drained from
the spa and the power pack. We recommend the use of a wet/dry vacuum
to blow or suck all the water from the spa fittings and the power pack. Care
must be taken in cold weather as the vinyl will become stiff and brittle when
the temperature falls below 0ºF.
Draining the Spa
A garden hose may be used to siphon the water out of the spa. Place one end
of the garden hose into a suitable drain. Turn the turbo wave blower on and
hold the other end of the garden hose over the water discharge fitting inside
the spa. When the siphon action starts, place the end of the garden hose on
the floor of the spa. Turn off the turbo wave blower and unplug the power
pack. Do not lift the spa if it contains more than 1/4” of water.

Comfort Line Products
GFCI (120 volt units only)
The GFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt, fitting on the power pack
electrical cord should be tested monthly. There are no user serviceable parts
inside the GFCI. Do not open the GFCI as this will void your warranty.
To test the GFCI, use the following procedure.
If the GFCI device does not function properly, do not use your
spa. Call the dealer or factory immediately for instructions. Do
not bypass the GFCI device.
1. Turn on the turbo wave blower.
2. Push the test button on the GFCI located
at the end of the power cord. The GFCI

No Heat
1. Dirty filter: Clean the filter per the instructions provided in the
Maintenance section of this manual. If the filter is more than two months
old, replace it. After cleaning or replacing the filter, cover the spa, turn
the temperature set point all the way up, and leave the spa for 24 hours.
If the spa still will not heat, contact the manufacturer for instructions.
2. No circulation, water pump air bound: Unplug the power pack from
the electrical outlet. Bleed air from the filter tank by turning the bleed
fitting on the top of the filter tank counter-clockwise. After one minute,
or when water drips from the fitting, close the bleed fitting and plug in. If
the water pump still does not pump water, contact the manufacturer for
instructions.
If the water pump becomes air bound again, check the o-ring on the
top of the filter tank. Refer to the filter changing instructions in the
Maintenance section of this manual. Replace the o-ring if necessary.
3. Bad power pack: Ensure power is available to the spa. Check the circuit
breaker at the main electrical panel. Connect another electrical appliance
to the plug used for the spa. If power is available to the spa, test the GFCI
using the instructions supplied in the Maintenance section. If the GFCI
is working properly and the power pack does not function, then the
power pack is bad. If the GFCI is not working properly, do not use the
spa. Immediately contact the manufacturer for instructions.
4. In some situations, the numerical temperature display may read ‘OH’
(overheat) and the spa will not heat until reset. To fix this problem,
please use the following procedure:
A. If the spa water is still warm (over 104°F / 40°C), unplug the
power pack and let the water cool to below 104°F / 40°C. (Use a
thermometer to verify the temperature.)
B. Plug the power pack back in and press the small reset button directly
below the temperature display. This will clear the ‘OH’ message and
the spa will resume normal operations.
Should this problem occur repeatedly, please call our customer support
for further instructions.

Leaks
1. The two small connections between the power pack and the spa are
leaking: Ensure the garden hose style washer inside each of these fittings
is still in place and undamaged. If the washers are in place and the
connection is still leaking, there may be a small piece of plastic behind
the hose washer. Remove the small piece of plastic with a utility knife or
needle-nose pliers.
2. Blower connection is leaking: If the large connection between the spa
and the power pack is leaking, ensure the o-ring inside the fitting is in
place and undamaged.
3. Plumbing or pressure switch is leaking: Look under the power pack. If
water is coming from underneath the power pack, then the plumbing or
pressure switch inside the power pack is leaking. Contact the factory for
instructions.
