SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
CARE OF YOUR SPA COVER
Always cover your spa when not in use. This will greatly reduce energy consumption and will cause spa
water to heat more rapidly. Water loss and chemical usage will also be reduced.
• Be sure to lock down all straps on cover after each use to prevent wind damage.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions should be observed
including the following:
READ AND FOLLOW ALL
INSTRUCTIONS
1.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not permit children to use this product
unless they are closely supervised at all times.
WARNING -
2.
DANGER - RISK OF CHILD DROWNING.
Extreme caution must be
exercised to prevent unauthorized access by children. To avoid accidents, ensure that children
cannot use this spa unless they are supervised at all times.
*NOTE: A wire connector is provided on this unit to connect of a minimum No. 6 AWG
solid copper conductor between this unit and any metal equipment, metal enclosures of electrical
equipment, metal water pipe, or conduit within 5 feet (1.5m) of the unit.
3.
DANGER - RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. Install spa at least five (5)
feet (1.5M) from all metal surfaces. A spa may be installed within five (5) feet (1.5M) of metal
surfaces if, in accordance with the National Electrical Code, each metal surface is permanently
connected by a minimum No. 6 AWG (8.4mm) solid copper conductor attached to the wire c
onnector on the terminal box. A grounding lug is provided for this purpose.
4.
• Do not allow spa to sit uncovered in direct sunlight. This may cause damage to exposed surfaces of
spa and possible discoloration of spa fittings.
• Periodically hose off both sides of spa cover for maximum life of cover. Once a month use a vinyl
cleaner and conditioner on the vinyl portion of your cover. Rinse residue off.
• Keep cover open for 15 minutes after adding chemicals to prevent off gas damage.
NOTE: IF YOUR SPA IS GOING TO BE LEFT EMPTY FOR PROLONGED PERIODS, DO NOT REPLACE COVER
DIRECTLY ON SURFACE OF SPA. PLACE 2"-3" BLOCKS BETWEEN COVER AND SPA. THIS ALLOWS
FOR ADEQUATE VENTILATION OF COVER AND SPA.
NOTE: The cover warranty is provided through the cover manufacturer and not through Master Spas.
You will need to mail the cover warranty back to the cover manufacturer.
CARE OF YOUR SPA CABINET
Your DuraMaster™ Polymer Skirt, Master Select Skirt or Dreamstone Skirt is a maintenance free skirt.
No conditioning is necessary. Simply hose off the waterproof / U.V. resistant material periodically.
FILTER CLEANING
NOTE: Never operate the spa without filters in place. If done, damage will result to pumps and other
components. We recommend having an extra set of filters to install when cleaning the filters.
1. Turn power off to the spa.
2. Remove any large or floating debris from the filter area.
3. Remove the filter(s). Remember, ECO PUR™ mineral filters and middle depth loading filter should only
be rinsed down and never soaked in a cartridge cleaner. Outer filter(s) should be periodically rinsed
and soaked in a cartridge cleaner. Follow cartridge cleaner instructions. Depth loading filters should
be replaced every 6 months or as necessary depending on bather load.
DANGER - RISK OF INJURY.
The suction fittings in this spa 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.
*NOTE: Never operate the spa 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 suction fitting.
5.
DANGER -
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, do not remove the suction grate.
Suction through drains and skimmers is powerful when the jets in the spa are in use. Damaged
covers can be hazardous to small children and adults with long hair. Should any part of the body
be drawn into these fittings, turn off the spa immediately. As a precaution, long hair should not
be allowed to float in the spa.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
DRAINING YOUR SPA
The drain is located behind the front panel on the far right side. You can access the drain by unscrewing
the black thumb screws and removing the corner panel. Grasp the drain cap, and pull the assembly out
all the way. Unscrew the cap, then push the assembly back in half way to start the flow of water. Attach
a garden hose, if desired. Draining times may vary by model using the external hose bib. A sump pump
may also be used to drain the spa quickly.
NOTE: When pushing or pulling the assembly in or out, water will drip from the drain during
the transition. This is normal.
Spa Drain
REPLACING YOUR LIGHT BULB (NON L.E.D.)
If your light bulb goes out, it is very easy to replace.
Use a 12 volt, 6 watt bulb that should be available through your dealer.
First, make sure the power to the spa is off. You can access the spa light fitting by removing the spa
panel.
Once the panel is removed, unfasten the black fitting inside the white light assembly, by turning it
counter clockwise.
Attached to the black fitting is the light bulb. Replace the bulb and reinsert the fitting, by turning it
clockwise.
If the white lens cap needs to be removed, insert a flat head screw driver as shown in the picture below.
This may also be necessary
when installing an LED light.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(CONT.)
6.
Install the spa so that water can be easily drained out of the compartment
containing electrical components so as not to damage equipment. Also, when installing spa,
allow at least 2 feet of clearance around the perimeter of the spa to provide enough room to
access for servicing. Contact your local dealer for their specific requirements.
WARNING.
7.
WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY:
(A) Reminder - Never allow anyone to dive into a spa. Always enter feet first.
(B) Always enter and exit a spa slowly.
(C) Do not use the spa alone.
(D) Before entering the spa, always measure the water temperature with an accurate
thermometer. Tolerance of water temperature regulating devices can vary as much as
plus/minus 5° F (3° C).
(E) Persons suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, diabetes, high
or low blood pressure or circulatory system problems should consult a physician before
using the spa.
(F) Since excessive water temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal damage during
early months of pregnancy, pregnant or possibly pregnant women should limit spa water
temperatures to 100° F (38° C).
(G) Excessive water temperature can be dangerous. The water in the spa 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. Long exposures at higher
temperatures can result in hyperthermia.
(H) The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication before or during spa use may lead to
unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
NOTE: To prevent premature failure of your spa cover, always turn Laminar Flow Jets down so that they
do not hit the cover when the cover is closed. You do not want to completely turn jets off. Doing so
may cause a build up of stagnant water in the water line if not used often.
DO NOT DIVE.
72
(I) Persons using medication should consult a physician before using a spa since some
medication may induce drowsiness while other medication may affect heart rate, blood
pressure and circulation.
DO NOT DIVE.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Note: These are areas that will require the spa owner to perform routine maintenance. These are not areas
covered under the warranty of the spa.
CLEANING JETS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(CONT.)
The majority of jets in your spa can individually be turned on/off. If any of these jets become hard to
turn, it will be necessary to remove the jet to clean it as grit/sand and mineral deposit may be present.
Jets in the Legend Series and Down East line are removed by turning the collar and then pulling out the
jet.
HYPERTHERMIA
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level several degrees
above the normal body temperature of 98.6° F.
THE SYMPTOMS OF HYPERTHERMIA INCLUDE:
Dizziness • Fainting • Drowsiness • Lethargy • Increase in Internal Body Temperature
THE EFFECTS OF HYPERTHERMIA INCLUDE:
Unawareness of Impending Hazard • Failure to Perceive Heat • Failure to Recognize the Need to Exit
Spa • Physical Inability to Exit Spa • Fetal Damage in Pregnant Women • Unconsciousness Resulting
in a Danger of Drowning
(I) Children’s body temperature can increase more rapidly than adults in the same water with
elevated temperatures (above 99° F). Children should spend less time in water above body
temperature than adults.
8.
To Clean Jets
Place the jet(s) in a bucket, fully immerse in white vinegar. Let the jet(s) soak overnight and then rinse
with water. Reinstall the jet(s). It may also be necessary to clean the grit/deposit from the white jet body
using an old toothbrush.
CLEANING DIVERTER VALVES
hyperthermia.
Some Legend Series and Down East Spas have diverter valves. Due to mineral deposits and grit/sand that
may get into the internal parts of the diverter valve, it may become hard to turn or freeze up completely.
In this case, it is necessary to remove the handle and cap of the diverter valve. Before proceeding, make
sure the power to the spa is turned off.
(J) The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication before or during spa use may lead to
unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
Turn the cap piece counter clockwise. It may be necessary to put a clean rag over the cap and turn it
with a wrench.
(K) Persons using medication should consult a physician before using a spa since some
medication may induce drowsiness while other medication may affect heart rate, blood
pressure, and circulation.
Once loose, the cap and handle can be pulled up out of the white plumbing fitting.
WARNING -
The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication can greatly increase the risk of
Wipe down the internal piece that attaches to the cap and handle.
Soak the cap and handle in white vinegar.
9.
Reminder: A safe temperature for swimming or aquatic exercise is around 80˚ F.
10.
People with infections, sores or the like should not use the spa. Warm and hot water
temperatures may allow the growth of infectious bacteria if not properly disinfected.
The white plumbing fitting should also be wiped down. If the surface of the white plumbing has
become too abrasive, you can take wet, fine sandpaper and smooth it out. It is also helpful to use a
lubricant (use silicone based, not petroleum based) to allow for an easier turn of the diverter handle.
Rinse the diverter internals and reassemble.
In the future, it is helpful to turn the diverter valve only when the pump is not on. Cleaning your
diverter valve should occur every time you drain your spa.

SITE PREPARATION / GENERAL GUIDELINES
MAX STEREO SYSTEM / SPA THEATER SYSTEM (STS)
Windsor
Portable spa installation is simple when properly planned. To that end, it is important that you read the
following information carefully and consult with your Master Spas dealer.
Note: Speakers should be in the down position before covering your spa. Failure to do so will result in
damage not covered under the warranty.
1) Access - The actual dimensions of your new spa will determine the amount of space that is needed in
moving the spa from curbside to its final installation area. Be sure to measure side yard dimensions,
gates or doors and vertical obstructions such as roof overhangs and overhead cables. Any other space
limiting obstacles such as trees or shrubs must be evaluated.
Note: UV rays may interfere with the operation of the remote.
2) If the spa is being installed indoors, dimension limitations such as stairs, ceilings and walls must
be taken into consideration. Please have your Master Spas dealer or delivery service review site
or installation plans prior to delivery.
3) Surface/Pad Requirements - When your new spa is filled with water and bathers, it may weigh as
much as several tons. It is imperative that the base beneath the spa can support the actual weight.
The spa must be on a uniformly firm, continuous, and level surface. The recommended foundation
is a concrete pad with a minimum thickness of four (4) inches with steel reinforcement bars crossed
throughout the pad.
Note: Do not place wet CD’s into the stereo at anytime.
IMPORTANT
Note: Do not place wet DVD’s into the DVD player at anytime.
When installing your spa indoors, on a wood deck, or balcony, the same load requirements must
be met. Total load may be as much as 90 pounds per square foot. You should speak with a qualified
contractor or your local building department to confirm that your surface is adequate for supporting
a spa. Be sure to locate your spa so that equipment remains above grade and is not subject to
flooding.
Note: AM channels will be very limited in reception and in most cases be unavailable.
The equipment side(s) of the spa must be accessible in the event that future service is needed. Periodical
maintenance checks require entry into the equipment bay. When possible, it is wise planning for the
future to leave access to all sides of the spa in the event your spas plumbing requires maintenance.
Your spa warranty does not cover the cost of providing access for service.
CAUTION – Risk of Electric Shock. Do not leave compartment door open.
CAUTION –
Risk of Electric Shock. Replace components only with identical components; and
Do not operate the Audio / Video controls while inside the spa.
WARNING – Prevent Electrocution. Do not connect any auxiliary components (for example
cable, additional speakers, headphones, additional Audio / Video components, etc.) to the system.
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Again, proper planning will increase your total enjoyment factor with your new spa. Listed below are
some additional items to consider when planning your installation.
• How spa will complement landscaping
and vice versa
• Getting to spa from house and return
• View from inside spa and view of spa from
inside of home
• Storage for spa chemicals
• Proximity to dressing rooms and bathrooms
• Local building codes (if applicable)
• Exposure to sunlight and shading from trees
• Power cable
• Privacy
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR INSTALLATION
NOTE: These units are not provided with an outdoor antennae; when provided, it should be installed
in accordance with article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI / NFPA 70.
NOTE: Do not service this product yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous
voltage or other risk of injury. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
NOTE: When the power supply connections or or power supply cord(s) are damaged; if water is
entering the Audio / Video compartment or any electrical equipment area; if the protective
shields or barriers are showing signs of deterioration; or if there are signs of other potential
damage to the unit, turn off the unit and refer servicing to a qualified service personnel.
NOTE: This unit should be subjected to periodic routine maintenance (for example, once every 3 months)
to make sure that the unit is operating correctly.
Installing your spa indoors creates an entirely different set of considerations. Here again, with proper
planning, no matter what room your spa goes in, it will be your favorite room.
• Work with your Master Spas dealer and
contractor to insure all local building, electrical
and plumbing codes are met
• A ventilation fan may be necessary due
to high humidity created by your spa
• Finished material in your spa room should also
be capable of withstanding increased humidity
• Plan for a floor drain to drain off excess water
or for draining and cleaning your spa

MAX STEREO SYSTEM / SPA THEATER SYSTEM (STS)
WATER CHEMISTRY TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Available on select Master Spa and Down East Models
Before jumping into the Spa Water Maintenance, here are some terms to help you.
WARNING:
1.
Never remain in your spa longer than 15 minutes per session when the water temperature is
above 98˚ F. If you wish to spend more time in your spa, whether enjoying music, watching tv,
or just lounging, be sure to keep the spa water at or below body temperature (98.6˚ F).
Parts per million, or ppm: This is a form of measurement used in most pool or spa chemical
readings. Best described as any one million like items of equal size and make up, next to one
unlike item , but of equal size. This would be one part per million.
2.
Average size spa: What is it? The national spa and pool institute (NSPI) states; 350 to 400 U.S.
gallons is average. As a general rule, chemical dosages are the same for any spa between 100
and 500 U.S. gallons. Spas over 500 U.S. gallons the dosage would be double. Under 100 U.S.
gallons would be on a case by case basis.
3.
Total Alkalinity: This is a measurement of the ability of the water to resist changes in pH. Put
another way, it is the water’s ability to maintain proper pH. Total alkalinity is measured in parts per
million from 0 to 400 plus, with 80 to 150 ppm being the best range for spas. With low alkalinity,
the pH will flip, or change back and forth, and be hard to control. With high alkalinity it becomes
extremely difficult to change the pH.
4.
pH or potential hydrogen: This is a measurement of the active acidity in the water, or it is
the measurement of the concentration of active hydrogen ions in the water. The greater the
concentration of active hydrogen ions, the lower the pH. pH is not measured in parts per million,
but on a scale from 0 to 14, with 7 being the neutral. In spas when ever possible, a measurement
between 7.2 and 7.8 is best. Whenever possible, it should be between 7.4 and 7.6. With low pH,
the results can be corroded metals, etched and stained plaster stained fiberglass or acrylic, eye /
skin irritation, rapid chlorine or bromine loss, and total alkalinity destruction. With high pH,
the results can be cloudy water, eye / skin irritation, scale formation and poor chlorine or
bromine efficiency.
5.
Shocking: This is when you add either extra chlorine (superchlorinate) by raising the chlorine
level above 8 ppm, or add a non-chlorine shock (potassium monoperoxysulfate or potassium
monopersulfate) to burn off the chloramines or bromamines. A non-chlorine shock acts by
releasing oxygen in the water, which serves the same function as chlorine. The advantage to
using non-chlorine shock, is you can enter the water within 15 minutes after shocking. Using
chlorine, you must wait until the total chlorine reading is below 5 ppm. One thing to remember,
a non-chlorine shock will not kill bacteria or disinfect.
6.
Sequestering: This can be defined as the ability to form a chemical complex which remains in
solution, despite the presence of a precipitating agent (i.e. calcium and metals). Common names
for sequestering chemicals are; minquest, stain and scale control, metal-x, spa defender, spa
metal gone, (etc.).
7.
Filtration: Filters are necessary to remove particles of dust, dirt, algae, etc. that are continuously
entering the water. If the spa is not operated long enough each day for the filter to do a proper
job, this puts a burden on the chemicals, causing extra expense. Filtration time will depend on the
spa size, pump and filter size, and of course, bather load. A spare cartridge should be kept on
hand to make it easy to frequently clean the cartridge without the need for a long shut down. This
will also allow the cartridge to dry out between usages, which will increase the cartridge life span
as much as twice. Replace the cartridge when the pleats begin to deteriorate. Cartridge cleaning
should be done a minimum of once a month. More often with a heavy bather load.

WATER CHEMISTRY TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW
DOWN EAST – mystic
Before jumping into the Spa Water Maintenance, here are some terms to help you.
Diagnostic Messages
8.
Message
Sanitizers: This is what kills the germs and bacteria that enter the water from the environment and
the human body.
A. Chlorine
1. Only one type is good for spa use: Sodium dichlor which is a granule, fast dissolving,
and pH neutral
2. Chlorine is an immediate sanitizer.
Meaning
Action Required
Possible inadequate water,
poor flow, or air bubbles
are detected in the heater.
Spa is shut down for 15
minutes.
Check water level in spa. Refill if necessary. If the water
level is okay, make sure the pumps have been primed. Press
any button to reset, or this message will automatically reset
within 15 minutes. If problem persists, contact your dealer
or service provider.
Inadequate water detected
in heater. (Displays on third
occurrence of "dr"
message.) Spa is shut
down.
Follow action required for “dr” message. Spa will not
automatically reset; you may press any button to reset.
B. Bromine (Note: Bromine use is not recommended with Eco Pur filters.)
1. Two types of tablets.
a. Hydrotech
b. Lonza
2. Bromine is a slow dissolve chemical and may take a few days to develop a reserve
or reading in the water.
9.
Total dissolved solids (TDS): Materials that have been dissolved by the water. i.e. Like what happens
when you put sugar in coffee or tea.
10. Useful life of water (in days): Water should be drained at least once every 180 days. Useful life may
vary by usage and bather load.
Warning! Shock Hazard! No User Serviceable Parts. Do not attempt service of this control system. Contact your
dealer or service organization for assistance. Follow all owner’s manual power connection instructions. Installation must be performed
by a licensed electrician and all grounding connections must be properly installed.
11. Defoamer: Foaming may be caused by body oils, cosmetics, lotions, surface cleaners, high pH or
algeacides as well as other organic materials. Low levels of calcium or sanitizer can also cause
foaming. Also, double rinse your bathing suits as they will hold residual soap after being washed.
12. Calcium hardness: Water that is too hard (over 250 ppm) can promote scale formation in
components and on spa surface. Water that is too low (below 180 ppm) may also shorten
the life of metal components on the spa.
NOTE: Always leave spa cover open for 15 minutes after adding chemicals to prevent the off gas
from damaging your spa cover, spa pillows and other critical parts.

* All Down East and Legend Series Spas use the ECO PUR filter(s). This section pertains specifically to
maintaining water chemistry in spas that have the ECO PUR filters.
SPECIAL NOTE
ECO PUR™ water filter system is designed to reduce the use of chemicals in your spa. You will still be
required, periodically, based on usage to add a small amount of chlorine to oxidize organic compounds
in the water. The ECO PUR™ filter system will not eliminate the need to maintain proper water
chemistry but can make the maintenance a more natural experience.
Note: Eco-Pur filters are not recommended for use with Bromine. This manual references bromine as well
as chlorine in case you decide to remove the Eco-Pur filters and sanitize your spa with bromine. Consult
your dealer for additional information.
Master Spa Products are not designed to be used with Biquanides. These chemicals are found in
SoftSwim® and Baqua Spa. Due to adverse effects from these types of products, the warranty of the
spa may be void.

Legend Series Spas and Down East Spas
For ECO PUR™ Water Filter System
Mode
Step 1:
Mode is changed by pressing the “Temp” button, then pressing the “Light” button.
Step 2:
Step 3:
Your spa should be filled using a Pre-filter, which can be obtained from your local dealer.
This Pre-filter will help remove many of the minerals existing in the water, which will make
adjusting the water balance easier after a new fill.
During initial filling of the spa with fresh water, add a sequestering agent such as Mineral
Clear or Stain and Scale, etc. depending on the brand name. Allow to circulate and filter
for at least 12 hours.
Test water for pH, total Alkalinity, and Calcium hardness. The pH should be 7.2 - 7.8 and the
total Alkalinity 80-150 PPM. Calcium hardness levels should be maintained between 150 and
250 PPM (part per million).
Step 4:
Adjust pH, total Alkalinity (TA) and Calcium hardness utilizing the directions on the chemical
bottles provided by your dealers start up kit.
Step 5:
It may be necessary to retest and add additional chemicals to get to the proper levels
in Step 3.
Step 6:
Add 2 oz. of concentrated chlorinating granules (sodium Dichlor-s-triazinetreone) per 500
gallons on initial start up to begin sanitizing the spa water. It is important not to add the
chlorinating granules until the pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness have been adjusted to
their proper levels.
Economy mode heats the spa to the set temperature only during filter cycles. “Ec” will display solid
when the temperature is not current, and will alternate with the temperature when the temperature is
current.
Sleep mode heats the spa to within 20˚F /10˚C) of the set temperature only during filter cycles. “SL”
will display solid when the temperature is not current, and will alternate with temperature when
temperature is current.
Preset Filter Cycles (if configured)
The first filter cycle begins 6 minutes after the spa is energized. The second filter cycle begins 12 hours
later. Filter duration is programmable for 2, 4, 6, 8 hours or for continuous filtration (indicated by “FC”).
The default filter time is 2 hours.
To program, press “Temp” then “Jets.” Press “Temp” to adjust. Press “Jets” to exit programming.
At the beginning of each filter cycle the pumps purge for 30 seconds. The only effect filter duration
has is: In Economy and Sleep Modes, heating only occurs during the filter cycle.
SPECIAL NOTE:
We recommend a level of 1.0 ppm chlorine residual be maintained.
* It may be necessary to rinse your filters within the first few days after filling your spa to ensure that
they are not restricting water flow due to the initial removal of heavy contaminents in source water.
DO NOT DIVE.
Standard mode is programmed to maintain the desired temperature. Note that the last measured spa
temperature displayed is current only when the pump has been running for at least 2 minutes. “St” will
be displayed momentarily when you switch into Standard mode.

Freeze Protection
If the temperature sensors detect a drop to below 44˚F /6.7˚C within the heater, the pump automatically
activates to provide freeze protection. The equipment stays on until 4 minutes after the sensors detect
that the spa temperature has risen to 45˚F /7.2˚C or higher. In colder climates, an optional additional
freeze sensor may be added to protect against freeze conditions that may not be sensed by the standard
sensors. Aux freeze sensor protection acts similarly except with the temperature thresholds determined
by the switch and without a 4-minute delay in turnoff. See your dealer for details.

THE ADVANTAGES OF ECO PUR™ filtration
Legend Series Spas and Down East Spas
Initial Start-up
When your spa is first actuated, it will go into Priming mode, indicated by “Pr.” The Priming mode will
last for less than 5 minutes (press “Temp” to skip Priming Mode) and then the spa will begin to heat the
spa and maintain the water temperature in the Standard mode.
• Helps remove calcium carbonate and hydrogen sulphide from spa water to protect heaters
and equipment from precipitation.
• Helps stabilize the pH and alkalinity of the spa water.
• Helps reduce chemical usage and still provide safe odor-free water.
• Helps deplete excess chlorine after chemical shock to prevent damage to skin, hair, and swim wear.
• Helps to produce ultra clean and clear water.
SPECIAL NOTES
The ECO PUR™ filter system will not oxidize organic compounds and will require periodic doses of
chlorine to assist in the sanitization and oxidation processes required to maintain clear spa water.
• ECO PUR™ filter system will not alter the ph of spa water. The ECO PUR™ filter system will
actually aid in stabilizing the ph. ECO PUR™ does not alter the (TDS) total dissolved solids.
The use of sequestrants and stain & scale inhibitors is not required for regular maintenance
and should only be used in the start up procedure.
Warm/Cool (80˚F - 104˚F / 26˚C - 40˚C)
The start-up temperature is set at 100˚F/37˚C. The last measured temperature is constantly displayed on
the LCD.
Note that the last measured spa temperature displayed is current only when the pump has been running
for at least 2 minutes.
To display the set temperature, press the “Temp” pad once.
• The main function of the ECO PUR™ filter system is to provide clean and clear spa water.
Proper chemical balance and filtration are also key components in maintaining healthy spa
water. Always ensure that the ph and total alkalinity of the spa water is checked and balanced
at all times. To ensure proper filtration, clean the outer filter cartridge with a “filter cleaner”
every 30 days and rinse the ECO PUR™ cartridge with a hose to remove any buildup of
containments. (Do not soak the ECO PUR™ cartridge in filter cleaner.) If water appears
to be visually cloudy, dull, or has an odor, shock the spa water with 2 ounces of chlorine
to remove excessive containments.
To change the set temperature, press the pad a second time before the LCD stops flashing. Each press
of the “Temp” pad will continue to either raise or lower the set temperature.
If the opposite direction is desired, release the pad and let the display revert to the current water
temperature. Press the pad to display the set temperature, and again to make the temperature change
in the desired direction.
After three seconds, the LCD will stop flashing and display the current spa temperature.

Day Six and Seven Skip
With a spa, you are working with a small volume of hot water, which causes chemicals to have a
shorter life span, and bacteria, along with other things, to grow faster. A spa is less forgiving than
a pool, and requires that whatever is put into it have a pH as close to neutral as possible. That is
why only chemicals made for spas should be used.
Note: Refer to pg. 52 for Mystic operations.
Your system has a 24-hour circ pump. The circ pump and the ozone generator run continuously.
Warm/Cool (80˚F - 104˚F / 26˚C - 40˚C)
The start-up temperature is set at 100F°/37°C. The last measured temperature is constantly displayed on

Action Required
Possible inadequate water,
poor flow, or air bubbles
are detected in the heater.
Spa is shut down for 15
minutes.
Check water level in spa. Refill if necessary. If the water
level is okay, make sure the pumps have been primed. Press
any button to reset, or this message will automatically reset

1. Evaporation:
As water evaporates, only pure water evaporates, leaving the salts, minerals, metals, and any
unused chemicals behind. Adding water adds more salts, minerals, and metals. In time, the water
can become saturated with these dissolved solids and can cause stains or scale to form on the
walls of the spa or a scale build up inside the equipment. Colored or cloudy water, and possible
corrosion of plumbing and fittings may also occur.
2. Heat:
Heat causes evaporation to happen faster. Heat also causes certain minerals and metals to
precipitate out of solution.
3. Air:
Dust and airborne dirt particles are introduced into the spa.
Warning! Shock Hazard! No User Serviceable Parts. Do not attempt service of this control system. Contact your
dealer or service organization for assistance. Follow all owner’s manual power connection instructions. Installation must be performed
by a licensed electrician and all grounding connections must be properly installed.
4. Environment:
The environment surrounding the spa is also a consideration. Watch for pollen, grass, sand, dirt,
lawn fertilizer, dust storms, insects, dogs, cats, etc.
5. Consider the human next:
In a heated spa, the average adult sweats 3 pints per hour. This person also brings in the spa
surface dirt, soap, body oils, deodorant, hair spray, hand and body lotion, perfume and cologne,
make up, lipstick, and suntan lotion. To this you can add spit, urine, bacteria and virus germs from
open sores or certain body parts. To this let’s add spilled drinks, cigarette ash, and various play
things. Now multiply this times 4 or 6 people in an average 375 gallon spa and then try to use
the water for a few months!
Remember:
The maintenance routines set forth in this manual may need to be adjusted depending on how much
the spa is being used.

Your spa requires periodic draining and cleaning to ensure a safe, healthy environment. It is recommended
that you clean your spa at least every 180 days. Heavy bather load will require cleaning it more often.
TO DRAIN YOUR SPA
• See page 13.
TO CLEAN YOUR SPA SURFACE
• With a soft cloth, wipe down the spa surface with a non-abrasive spa surface cleaner that may
be purchased through your local spa dealer. Do not use paper towels. Be sure to rinse residue from
spa surface.
• If your spa has developed an oily or chalky residue at the waterline it may require special treatment.
Consult your dealer.
TO REFILL YOUR SPA
• Be sure to close the drain valve.
• Fill the spa with water. Be sure water level is above skimmer opening to the minimum
safe water level label.
The filter in your spa is one of the most important components of your spa. It not only is essential for
clean water, but also for extending the life of the spa equipment. Your filter elements must be cleaned
regularly (once a month on average) with normal spa use. With heavy use, they will need to be cleaned
more often.
• Turn spa off. Never have the spa running when removing your filters as debris can be pulled through
into the equipment causing unwarranted damage.
• Remove filter element(s).
• With a garden hose, spray each element under pressure. Periodically, the elements need to
be soaked in a filter cleaner compound. Check with your dealer for details on cleaning and/or
filter replacement recommendations.
• Replace filter elements.
• Be sure water level is adequate.
• Turn spa on.
• Only clean ECO PUR™ and middle depth loading element with water.
• Depth loading filter is a disposable filter and should be replaced as water conditions require.
CARE OF YOUR SPA PILLOWS
• Your spa pillows need to be rinsed periodically to remove any chemical residue. This should help to
eliminate pillows becoming stiff and discolored.
• If spa is not to be used for a period of time, pillows should be removed. Pillow life will be extended.
• Always leave the cover open for 15 minutes in order to prevent off gas from damaging your spa
pillows, cover and other critical parts. Signs of off gas damage include but are not limited to pillows
peeling and bubbling, cover failing prematurely, plastics failing, etc.

CARE OF LAMINAR FLOW JETS:
Press the “Light” button to turn the light on and off. If left on, the light automatically turns off after
4 hours.
• In order to keep your Laminar Flow Jets operating properly, following these instructions in sequence:
- Turn off Laminar Flow Jets
- Remove outer ring by turning face counter clockwise
L.E.D. Light
- Remove internal Jet insert with a pair of needle nose pliers
Press the "Light" button to turn the light on and off. If you wish to change the “function” of the lights,
turn the lights off, then on within 5 seconds. If you wish to leave the lights in the same “function”
setting for the next use, turn the lights off and do not turn back on for at least 5 seconds.
- Clean plastic filter at the back of the Jet insert so all holes are free of debris
- Reinstall Jet insert and outer ring
Mode
Mode is changed by pressing the “Warm” or “Cool” button, then pressing the “Mode” button.
Standard mode is programmed to maintain the desired temperature. Note that the last measured spa
temperature displayed is current only when the pump has been running for at least 2 minutes. “St” will
be displayed momentarily when you switch into Standard mode.
Economy mode heats the spa to the set temperature only during filter cycles. “Ec” will display solid
when the temperature is not current, and will alternate with the temperature when the temperature is
current.
Sleep mode heats the spa to within 20˚F /10˚C) of the set temperature only during filter cycles. “SL”
will display solid when the temperature is not current, and will alternate with temperature when
temperature is current.
NOTE: To prevent premature failure of your spa cover, always turn Laminar Flow Jets down so that they
do not hit the cover when the cover is closed. You do not want to completely turn jets off. Doing so
may cause a build up of stagnant water in the water line if not used often.
Preset Filter Cycles (if configured)
Your spa comes standard with a 24 hour circulation pump that filters and maintains heat
as programmed/configured.
Freeze Protection
If the temperature sensors detect a drop to below 44˚F /6.7˚C within the heater, the pump automatically
activates to provide freeze protection. The equipment stays on until 4 minutes after the sensors detect
that the spa temperature has risen to 45˚F /7.2˚C or higher. In colder climates, an optional additional
freeze sensor may be added to protect against freeze conditions that may not be sensed by the standard
sensors. Aux freeze sensor protection acts similarly except with the temperature thresholds determined
by the switch and without a 4-minute delay in turnoff. See your dealer for details.

WINTERIZING YOUR SPA
MASTER SPA – LEGEND SERIES – LSX 557 - CONTROLS
Many people find they enjoy using their spa more in the winter than any other time. Your spa is
designed to be used year round in any type of climate.
Initial Start-up
*However, if you decide you don’t want to use your spa in the winter, you must drain it and follow the
winterizing steps listed below:
1.
Drain your spa completely using the drain valve (see “To Drain Your Spa”) or use an inexpensive
submersible pump that you can buy from your dealer or your local hardware store.
2.
Use a shop vac to get all standing water out of your unit.
3.
Remove access panels from equipment area.
4.
Loosen all pump unions
5.
Remove winterizing plug from the face of the pump(s).
6.

Jets 2
The start-up temperature is set at 100˚F/37.5˚C. The last measured temperature is constantly displayed
on the LCD.
Press the “Jets 2” button once to turn pump 2 on or off, and to shift between low and high speeds.
If left running, the pump will turn off after 15 minutes.
Note that the last measured spa temperature displayed is current only when the pump has been running
for at least 2 minutes.
Jets 3
Warm / Cool
Press the "Jets 3" button once to turn pump 3 on or off. If left running, the pump will turn off after
15 minutes.
Press the "Warm" or "Cool" button once to display the set temperature. Each time either button is
pressed again, the set temperature will increase or decrease depending on which button is pressed.
After three seconds, the LCD will automatically display the last measured spa temperature.
Time
When time hasn’t been programmed, the TIME icon flashes. To set the time, press “Time” then
“Program/Mode”. Use the “Warm” and “Cool” buttons to adjust time. See previous page for more
detailed instructions.
Program/Mode
This button is used to switch between standard, economy, and sleep modes. Press “Program/Mode” to
enter mode programming, press “Cool” to cycle through to desired mode (LCD flashes until confirmed),
then press “Program/Mode” to confirm selection.
Standard mode maintains the desired temperature. Note that the last measured spa temperature
displayed is current only when the pump has been running for at least 2 minutes. The “STANDARD”
icon will display until the mode is changed.
Economy mode heats the spa to the set temperature only during filter cycles. The “ECONOMY” icon
will display until mode is changed.
Pressing “Jets 1” while in Economy mode puts the spa in Standard-In-Economy mode, which operates
the same as Standard Mode, then reverts to Economy Mode automatically after 1 hour. During this time,
a press of the “Program/Mode” button will revert to Economy Mode immediately.
Sleep Mode heats the spa to within 20˚F (11˚C) of the set temperature only during filter cycles.
The “SLEEP” icon will display until mode is changed.
Standby Mode
Pressing “Warm” or “Cool” then “Jets 2” will turn off all spa functions temporarily. This is helpful when
changing a filter. Press any button to exit Standby mode.
Jets 1
Press the “Jets 1” button once to turn pump 1 on or off, and to shift between low and high speeds.
If left running, the low speed turns off after 2 hours and the high speed turns off after 15 minutes.
It may also activate for at least 2 minutes every 30 minutes to detect the spa
temperature (polling) and then to heat the set temperature if needed, depending upon mode. When the
low speed turns on automatically, it cannot be deactivated from the panel; however, the high speed may
be started.

Quick Reference LEDs
There are four LEDs on the left side of the panel that offer quick references to what spa functions are
activated. From top to bottom, these lights indicate the following: Filter Cycle 1, Filter Cycle 2, Panel
Lock, Temperature Lock.
L.E.D. Light
Press the "Light" button to turn the light on and off. If you wish to change the “function” of the lights,
turn the lights off, then on within 5 seconds. If you wish to leave the lights in the same “function”
setting for the next use, turn the lights off and do not turn back on for at least 5 seconds.
Circ Pump
Your system may be configured to work in one of three different ways:
1. The circ pump operates continuously (24 hours) with the exception of turning off for 30 minutes
at a time when the water temperature reaches 3˚ F (1.5˚C) above the set temperature (most likely
to happen in very hot climates).
2. The circ pump stays on continuously, regardless of water temperature.
3. The circ pump will come on when the system is checking temperature (polling), during filter cycles,
during freeze conditions, or when another pump is on.
NOTE: Factory configuration is chosen based on what the majority of users will need. If you would
like your spa to operate in a different configuration setting, your dealer can change your setting
for a fee.
