14.WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury:
• 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.
• 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 spa water temperatures to
100°F (38°C).
• Before entering a spa, the user should measure the water temperature
with an accurate thermometer since the tolerance of temperatureregulating devices may vary as much as +/- 5°F (3°C).
• The use of drugs, alcohol, or medication before or during spa use may
lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
• 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 the spa.

•
Persons using medications 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.
15.DANGER: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS. Do
not remove the suction fittings.
16.DANGER: RISK OF INJURY: Never operate a spa if the suction
guard(s) is broken or missing. Never replace a suction guard with one
rated less than the flow rate marked on the original suction guard. The
suction guard(s) in the spa are sized to match the specific water flow
created by the pump. Should the need arise to replace the suction
guard(s) or the pump, be sure that the flow rates are compatible.
17. DANGER: Children are especially sensitive to hot water. At no time
should children have unsupervised access to the spa. Children must not
be allowed to climb onto the spa cover. All Marquis spas are equipped
with a locking cover that meets the ASTM F1346-91 Standard for Safety
Covers. Always lock the child resistant locks after using the spa for your
children’s safety.

PERSONAL SAFETY
Prolonged immersion in hot water can result in HYPERTHERMIA, a
dangerous condition which occurs when the internal temperature of the
body reaches a level above normal (98.6°F, 37°C). The symptoms of
hyperthermia include dizziness, fainting, drowsiness, lethargy, and a body
temperature above 98.6°F (37°C). The physical effects of hyperthermia
include unawareness of impending hazard, failure to perceive heat, failure
to recognize the need to exit the spa, physical inability to exit the spa, fetal
damage in pregnant women, and unconsciousness resulting in a danger of
drowning.
Other booklets about spa safety are: “Children Aren’t Waterproof,” “Pool
and Spa Emergency Procedures For Infants and Children,” “Layers of
Protection” and “The Sensible Way to Enjoy Your Spa” published by NSPI.
WARNING: The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication can greatly increase
the risk of fatal hyperthermia in hot tubs and spas.
Persons taking medications which induce drowsiness such as tranquilizers,
antihistamines, or anticoagulants should not use the spa. Pregnant women
and persons with a medical history of heart disease, diabetes, or high
blood pressure should consult a physician before using the spa.
PAGE 8
MARQUIS SPAS
safety instructions
PERSONAL SAFETY DOs:
• Be sure your spa is connected to the power supply correctly – only use
a licensed electrical contractor.
• Shut off power supply (unplug 120V models) before draining the spa
or servicing the electrical components.
• Test the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) monthly.
• Always test the water temperature with an accurate thermometer
before entering the spa to be sure that it’s a safe temperature.
• Remember that wet surfaces can be very slippery. Take care when
entering and exiting the spa.
• Lock the DuraCover when the spa is not in use, whether it is empty or
full of water.
• Keep the water clean and sanitized with correct chemical care.
• Turn on the jets when adding ANY chemicals to the spa water.
• Clean the filter cartridge(s) monthly to remove debris and mineral
buildup which affects the performance of the hydrotherapy jets,
limits the flow, or trips the high limit thermostat which will turn off the
entire spa.
PERSONAL SAFETY DO NOTs:
• Don’t use the spa with the equipment compartment door removed.
• Don’t use the spa for more than 10 minutes of time at water temperatures in excess of 102°F (39°C).
• Don’t allow the jet pump(s) to operate for an extended period of time
with the cover in place. Extended pump operation causes a slow
heat buildup due to water friction. The spa equipment controls are
equipped with a built-in safety timer that automatically shuts off the
jet pump(s) after 15 minutes of continuous operation should it have
been left on inadvertently.
• Don’t operate the spa at any time with the filter cartridges removed.
• Don’t lift or drag the cover by using the tie-down straps; always lift and
carry by using the external handles.
• Don’t store chemicals in the spa’s equipment compartment.
• Don’t hesitate to call your Marquis Spas dealer with any questions or
maintenance concerns.

MARQUIS SPAS
installation instructions
LOCATION
For your portable spa to function properly and safely,
it must be located on a hard, flat, level surface.
Inground spas require special installation techniques
and should be planned in conjunction with your spa
dealer. Improper installation can result in structural
damage to the spa and the voiding of your spa
warranty. Items to discuss with your dealer include:
Local construction codes, electrical service requirements, serviceability of equipment, present underground obstructions such as gas, water, and telephone lines, safety measures such as fences and
locks, and visibility of the spa installation from the
home, street, and neighbors.
• Allow for sufficient water drainage around the spa
to help preserve the equipment and support
structure. This includes indoor installations.
• A filled spa can weigh up to 4,000 pounds and the
location should support the weight of the filled spa.
• Locate the equipment compartment where it will
be accessible. Your spa MUST be installed to
permit access for servicing the equipment above
and/or below any decks or floors. Access is
essential and must allow adequate room for service.
• Leave access to the circuit breakers in the sub
panel (240V models) or to the interrupter switch
(GFCI, 120V models) on the end of the power cord.
• Be sure the spa is level and in the final position
BEFORE filling with water. Check for power cords,
tools, and hoses that may be caught underneath
the spa.
• IMPORTANT: DO NOT LET AN EMPTY SPA
REMAIN EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
Spa surface temperatures can reach in excess of
150°F (65°C) if left exposed to the sun. Significant
damage can occur if this is allowed to happen,
including warping and blistering of the surface.
Damage, that occurs as a result of this exposure,
is not covered under the warranty.
• CAUTION: Never try to move a spa that has not
been fully drained. To do so could result in damage to the spa and physical injury to the mover.
PAGE 10
MARQUIS SPAS
installation instructions
OUTDOOR AND PATIO INSTALLATION
To install the spa outdoors, we recommend a
reinforced concrete pad at least four inches thick.
The reinforcing material should be attached to a #8
AWG bonding wire per national and local
electrical code.
If you place the spa on the ground, even temporarily, place concrete pavers under the entire bottom
of the spa. The concrete pavers should be a least
two inches thick and level across the entire surface.
The spa will inevitably settle and not remain level on
this surface, thus it’s important to get it onto a solid
foundation as soon as possible.
DECK INSTALLATION
Be sure the deck can support the weight of your
filled spa by checking the deck’s maximum load
capacity. Consult a qualified building contractor or
structural engineer. Minimum requirement is 100
pounds per square foot.
INDOOR INSTALLATION
There are special requirements if you place your spa
indoors. Flooring material must provide adequate
traction when wet. Proper drainage is essential to
prevent water puddling. Proper ventilation to the area
is required. The addition of a ventilation system is
recommended. Please see your contractor for
details.
PAGE 11
MARQUIS SPAS
installation instructions
SHUT-OFF VALVES
Your spa is equipped with shut-off valves (see
EQUIPMENT DIAGRAM) that shut off the water flow
to the equipment system for dealer service. At
times, a new spa or one that has recently been
serviced, may have the shut-off valves partially
closed which can restrict the water flow and hinder
jet performance. Be sure the valves are fully open.
Shut-off valve in
open position
1) Center filter
cartridge over canister
FREEZE PROTECTION
When a freeze condition is detected (which occurs
when the temperature in the heater housing drops
to 55°F, (13°C) the jet pump(s) is automatically activated. In areas with extremely cold winter conditions,
your spa should be fine as long as it is left running at
normal operating temperatures. For extra protection
see your dealer for an optional freeze sensor. If you
plan to turn the spa off, follow the instructions in this
manual (see SUSPENDED USE OR WINTERIZING
YOUR SPA).
OVERHEATING
In the case of extended hot weather, the spa water
temperature may reach and maintain 104°F to 106°F
(40°C to 41°C) or higher. This is due to the ambient
temperature and the full insulation in the spa cabinet. You may have the option of shortening the
pump-run time. See SPA CONTROL OPERATION for
available options.
FILTER CARTRIDGE(S)
Your portable spa is equipped with the Constant
Clean Filtration system. It features one or two Vortex
filters.
2) Screw filter
cartridge in place
NOTE: It is very important that the components of
these filtration systems be installed properly in the
proper part of the spa.
1. Hold the Vortex filter cartridge and center it in
the opening of the filter housing.
2. Use the filter handle and turn the filter cartridge
clockwise to screw it in place. (Use caution not
to overtighten as damage may occur to
threads and is not covered under warranty.)
3. Grasp the edge of the Waterfall, center it over
the rings and gently snap in place.
PAGE 12
MARQUIS SPAS
installation instructions
SUCTION GUARDS
The suction guard(s) in the footwell of your spa is an
opening through which the jet pump(s) draws water.
Suction fittings are equipped with a safety guard.
Suction through the fittings can be strong. The safety
guard(s) must remain in place and undamaged. A
fitting with a damaged guard(s) can be dangerous,
especially to small children or people with long hair.
Should any part of the body become drawn to a
fitting, turn the jet pump(s) off immediately. Long hair
should be restrained in a bathing cap, never allow it to
float freely in the spa. Replace any missing or damaged suction guard(s).
NOTE: It is normal for the flow rates of the suction
fittings to vary from strong to barely noticeable.
Safety guard of
suction fitting must
remain in place.

starting your spa
START-UP PROCEDURE
Your spa is equipped with solid-state Comfort Controls specific to your spa model. Please see SPA
CONTROL OPERATION for your specific spa model.
To start your spa, you need a spa water test kit and an
underwater thermometer. It is important to follow each
of these steps when starting your spa. Once you
have completed the following steps, refer to the
instructions in your start-up kit for proper start-up
water maintenance, or see MARQUIS CARE AND
ENJOYMENT GUIDE, Marquis SpaCare Start-up Kit.
Screw pump plug into
face of pump.
Close drain valve in
equipment bay (shown
in open position).
Screw plug in hose
connector.
Fill spa with water to
two-thirds of the way
up the Vortex skimmer
opening.
PAGE 15
MARQUIS SPAS
NOTE: Your spa has been filled and test-run at the
factory. The first time your spa is filled with water, some
discoloration from residual test water may appear. This
will disappear when the spa is completely filled and the
filtration system is functioning. Test the water for the
proper chemical balance and adjust as necessary.
Marquis SpaCare products are recommended. (See
WATER TREATMENT.) PROPER CHEMICAL BALANCE IS IMPORTANT for your safety and the
longevity of your spa.
THERAPY PUMP(S)
Allow the spa to circulate on high-speed (see SPA
CONTROL OPERATION) for four to five minutes to
discharge air from the plumbing system. Do not
expect hot water immediately from the jets; the
heater will take several hours to heat the water.
Start-up procedure for all models
1. Place spa on a hard, flat, level surface. Make
sure the power supply is off.
2. Make sure the suction guard(s) in the footwell
are in place and undamaged.
3. Open the equipment door. Close the drain valve
in the equipment bay. Screw the plug in the hose
connector located on the external DuraBase.
Tighten all disconnects and open all shut-off
valves.
4. Install filter cartridges. (See INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS, Filter Cartridges.)
5. Fill the spa with water to two-thirds of the way
up the Vortex skimmer openings. The use of a
Fill Filter is recommended, especially in areas
with high mineral content in the water.
starting your spa
Start-up procedure (continued)
Vent air by slightly
opening pump unions.
Use TEMP pad to set
water temperature.
6. Turn the power on.
7. Your spa is now in “pump priming” mode and a
“Pr” message displays in the LCD window of
the control panel. While in this mode the spa
appears idle, which lasts approximately four to
five minutes if not exited manually. To exit
manually, press the TEMP pad.
8. At this time the spa should have water flowing
from the jets. If the pump has not primed and
the water is not flowing from the jets after two
minutes TURN OFF POWER TO THE SPA and
vent air from the pumps by slightly opening the
pump unions. After turning the power on again,
the spa initiates a new priming mode. Repeat
steps above.
9. The system requires approximately two minutes
of water flow to determine the water temperature. After two minutes of water flow, the temperature is displayed as actual water temperature. After you have manually exited the priming
mode (or allowed the spa to automatically exit)
the LCD window momentarily displays 102°F
(39°C) and then the display switches to - - °F.
10. The factory default setting for water temperature is 102°F (39°C). Use the TEMP pad on the
control panel to set the water temperature to
the desired level. (See SPA CONTROL OPERATION.) Your spa heats at the rate of approximately
five degrees per hour for 240V systems.
DURACOVER™
When the spa is not in use, the DuraCover should be
kept on the spa to retain the water’s heat and to keep
out dirt, leaves, etc. Your heater maintains a constant
water temperature between uses.
DuraCover helps
maintain a constant
water temperature.
