Important Safety Instructions
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
A licensed electrician may be required to upgrade your
standard receptacle and/or circuit breaker.
DANGER -- RISK OF ACCIDENTAL DROWNING:
Do not allow children to be in or around a spa unless
a responsible adult supervises them. Keep the spa
cover on and locked when not in use. See instructions
enclosed with your cover for locking procedures.
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 the flow
rates are compatible.
DANGER -- RISK OF INJURY: Never operate the
spa if the suction fitting or filter baskets are broken
or missing.
DANGER -- RISK OF INJURY: Never replace a
suction fitting with one that is rated less than the flow
rate marked on the original suction fitting.
The use of alcohol, drugs or medication before or
during spa use may lead to unconsciousness, with
the possibility of drowning.
Persons suffering from obesity, 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 the spa since some medications may
induce drowsiness while others may affect heart
rate, blood pressure and circulation.
Hyperthermia Danger
Prolonged exposure to hot air or water can induce
hyperthermia. Hyperthermia occurs when the
internal temperature of the body reaches a level 2˚C
to 4˚C above the normal body temperature of 37˚C.
While hyperthermia has many health benefits, it is
important not to allow your body’s core temperature
to rise above 39.5˚C. Symptoms of excessive
hyperthermia include dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness
and fainting. The effects of excessive hyperthermia
may include:
•
Failure to perceive heat
DANGER -- RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK: Install the
spa at least 1.5 meters from all metal surfaces. As an
alternative, a spa may be installed within 1.5 meters
of metal surfaces if each metal surface is permanently
bonded by a minimum #8 AWG solid copper conductor
to the outside of the spa’s control box.
•
Failure to recognize the need to exit spa or hot
tub
•
Unawareness of impending hazard
•
Fetal damage in pregnant women
•
Physical inability to exit the spa
DANGER -- RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK: Do not
permit any external electrical appliances, such as
lights, telephones, radios, televisions, and etc., within
1.5 meters of the spa. Never attempt to operate any
electrical device from inside the spa. This does not
apply to lights, stereos and televisions that are built in
to the spa as factory options from Cal Spas™.
•
Unconsciousness
WARNING – RISK OF INJURY
The spa water should never exceed 40˚C. Water
temperatures between 38˚C and 40˚C are considered
safe for a healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are
recommended for young children and when spa use
exceeds 10 minutes.
High water temperatures have a high potential for
causing fetal damage during pregnancy. Women who
are pregnant, or who think they are pregnant, should
always check with their physician prior to spa usage.
WARNING: The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication
can greatly increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia.
Basic Spa Information
The following operating and maintenance instructions
are very important and must be followed carefully.
With the proper care and maintenance, your Cal
Spa will provide you with years of satisfaction and
performance.
Do not be afraid to push buttons or turn knobs to
learn about your new Cal Spa, as it is built with
quality materials and excellent craftsmanship.
Your new Cal Spa has been engineered with a highpowered water pump that pushes water through
various therapy jets, which will relax even the
tightest muscles. In addition to the water pressure,
you can add air into the spa water with air venturi

When installing and using this electrical equipment,
always follow basic safety precautions. Following
these instructions will help make your first spa session
a pleasurable one.

handles located seat-side that increase the intensity of
your massage.
The filtering of this spa is very important. It will
minimize cleaning time and the amount of chemicals
needed to keep your spa water balanced. The two daily
pre-programmed filter cycles of two hours in duration
can be increased to six hour cycles if the need arises.
This can be accomplished through the topside control
panel.
IMPORTANT: Keep the spa covered when not in
use!
•
Covered spas use less electricity while maintaining
a set temperature.
•
Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish
from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
•
You are required to keep the spa covered to
maintain warranty coverage.
•
Covering your spa helps prevent children from
drowning in the spa.
Your new Cal Spa comes equipped with an electric
heater. Following the directions listed below will ensure
the most efficient operation:
NOTE: This method is only for spa usage under two
hours a week.
•
•
Keep the spa’s operating temperature 3˚C below
the desired usage temperature when not in use.
One or two hours before use, set the temperature
to the desired temperature.
If the spa usage exceeds two hours a week, the
set temperature should remain at the desired
usage temperature.
•
The air venturis should be used sparingly. When
open, water temperature drops quite rapidly and
can also dissipate chemicals.
Allowing the water temperature to lower more than
6˚C below the desired usage temperature and
reheating it prior to usage will cause the heater to
operate longer than it normally would maintaining
the desired temperature. Doing this will increase your
operating cost and makes your heater work more than
necessary.
The filter needs to be cleaned or changed on a regular
basis. This process takes only a few minutes and
the result is increased water clarity and equipment
longevity.
Water level is very important to the operation of your
spa. If the water level is too low or too high, your spa
will not operate properly. The water level should be to
the middle of the skimmer area when the spa is not
being used.
We recommend that your spa water be changed every
4 to 6 months. You may find the need to change your
spa water more frequently with heavy use. When
empty, your spa should be cleaned with a non-abrasive
cleaner, such as Cal Spas™ All Surface Cleaner, and
then rinsed thoroughly.
See the section “Cleaning and Maintaining Your Spa”
for instructions on draining your spa.
When filling your spa, always fill through the skimmer
filter canister. Use only regular tap water.
WARNING: DO NOT USE SOFT WATER.

Preparing for Your New Portable Spa
Planning the Best Location
Here are some of the things that you will need to
consider when determining where to place your new
spa.
Safety First
Do not place your spa within 3 meters of overhead
power lines.
Consider How You Will Use Your Spa
How you intend to use your spa will help you determine
where you should position it. For example, will you use
your spa for recreational or therapeutic purposes? If
your spa is mainly used for family recreation, be sure
to leave plenty of room around it for activity. If you will
use it for relaxation and therapy, you’ll probably want
to create a specific mood around it.
Plan for Your Environment
If you live in a region where it snows in the winter or
rains frequently, place the spa near a house entry. By
doing this, you will have a place to change clothes and
not be uncomfortable.
Consider Your Privacy
Prevent dirt and contaminants from being tracked into
your spa by placing a foot mat at the spa’s entrance
where the bather’s can clean their feet before entering
your spa. You may also consider keeping a small waterfilled basin nearby for bathers to rinse their feet before
enter your spa.
Allow For Service Access
Make sure the spa is positioned so that access to the
equipment compartment and all side panels will not
be blocked.
Many people choose to install a decorative structure
around their spa. If you are installing your spa with
any type of structure on the outside, such as a gazebo,
remember to allow access for service. It is always best
to design special installations so that the spa can still
be moved, or lifted off the ground.
Preparing a Good Foundation
Your spa needs a solid and level foundation. The area
that it sits on must be able to support the weight of the
spa and the occupants who use it. If the foundation
is inadequate, it may shift or settle after the spa is in
place, causing stress that could damage your spa shell
or finish.
In a cold-weather climate, bare trees won’t provide
much privacy. Think of your spa’s surroundings during
all seasons to determine your best privacy options.
Consider the view of your neighbors as well when you
plan the location of your spa.
Damage caused by inadequate or improper foundation
support is not covered by the warranty. It is the
responsibility of the spa owner to provide a proper
foundation for the spa. We strongly recommended
that you have a qualified, licensed contractor prepare
the foundation for your spa.
Provide A View With Your Spa
Place the spa on a level foundation (preferably a 10
cm concrete slab). If you are installing the spa indoors,
pay close attention to the flooring beneath it. Choose
flooring that will not be damaged or stained.
Think about the direction you will be facing when
sitting in your spa. Do you have a special landscaped
area in your yard that you find enjoyable? Perhaps
there is an area that catches a soothing breeze during
the day or a lovely sunset in the evening.
Keep Your Spa Clean
In planning your spa’s location, consider a location
where the path to and from the house can be kept
clean and free of debris.
If you are installing your spa on an elevated wood
deck or other structure, consult a structural engineer
or a contractor to ensure the structure will support the
weight of 68 kg per square foot.
Your Cal Spas™ retailer can help you with your
foundation and more. Your retailer has a wealth of
information and experience about how to get the most
out of your spa and can provide you with a full line of
accessories that are designed to compliment your spa
and increase your enjoyment.

Preparing for Your New Portable Spa
Most cities and counties require permits for exterior construction and electrical circuits. In addition, some
communities have codes requiring residential barriers such as fencing and/or self-closing gates on property to
prevent unsupervised access to the property by children. Your dealer can provide information on which permits
may be required and how to obtain them prior to the delivery of your Cal Spa™.

230 Volt Electrical Installation
All 230V spas must be permanently connected
(hardwired) to the power supply. These instructions
describe the only acceptable electrical wiring
procedure. Spas wired in any other way will void your
warranty and may result in serious injury.
This is the only acceptable electrical wiring procedure.
Spas wired in any other way will void your warranty.
See the wiring diagram on page 8.
The electrical wiring of this spa must meet the
requirements of any applicable local, state, and federal
codes. The electrical circuit must be installed by an
electrical contractor and approved by a local building /
electrical inspector.
RCD and Wiring Requirements
The power supplied to the spa must be on a dedicated
RCD protected circuit with no other appliances or
lights sharing the power.
Use copper wire with THHN insulation. Do not use
aluminum wire.
When wires larger than #6 AWG are required, install
a junction box near the spa and use #6 AWG wire
between the junction box and the spa.
Wire runs over 26 m must increase wire gauge to the
next lower number. For example: A normal 50 amp
RCD with four #8 AWG copper wires run over 26
m would require you to go to four #6 AWG copper
wires.
Testing the RCD Breaker
Test the RCD breaker prior to first use and periodically
when the spa is powered. To test the RCD breaker
follow these instructions (spa should be operating):
1. Press the TEST button on the RCD. The RCD will
trip and the spa will shut off.
2. Reset the RCD breaker by switching the breaker
to the full OFF position, wait a moment, then turn
the breaker back on. The spa should have power
again.

Ultimate Fitness Series spa owners may buy and install a separate gas heater and pump for use with their spa.
This option may be purchased separately from your local distributor.
Spa owners are responsible for ensuring installation of their gas heater conforms to local, state, and federal
regulations. The electrical and gas installation must be performed by contractors and approved by a local
building / electrical inspector. Failure to do so may void your warranty.
All Ultimate Fitness Series spas are plumbed with a gas heater ready union located inside the cabinet at either
the front or rear, depending on the model. (See the figures below and on the next page.) Properly installed,
they can be attached to an external gas heater. Customers are responsible for creating openings in the panel
to accommodate the lines and wiring. The gas heater should be located not less than 3m and no more than
7.6m away from the spa.
To connect the plumbing for an external gas heater:
1. Disconnect the ready union.
2. Cut off both sides of the union and discard it.
3. Create two 6.35 cm diameter holes through the spa panel.
4. Use two 5 cm (2”) couplings to connect the hoses to 3m - 4.5m 5 cm (2-3/8”) diameter PVC lines.
5. Connect PVC lines to the gas heater.

Never fill your spa with soft water. Soft water makes it
impossible to maintain the proper water chemistry and
may cause the water to foam, which will ultimately
harm the finish of the spa and void your warranty.
1. Once the spa has been placed on an approved
surface and has been correctly wired by a licensed
electrician, inspect all plumbing connections in the
equipment area of your spa. Ensure that these
connections are secure and that they did not
loosen during shipment.
2. If equipped, open all gate valves in the equipment
area. Before operating the spa, these valves must
be in the UP or OPEN position.
3. Remove the filter basket and cartridge from
skimmer/filter canister.
4. Place a garden hose in the skimmer/filter canister
and fill your spa with regular tap water to the
proper water level (halfway up the skimmer
area).
5. (For owners of the automatic bromine generator)
Make sure the dial on the face of the bromine
generator unit is turned to the OFF position.
6. Open the air relief valve (located next to the two
filters, if equipped) after the air bubbles stop
coming out of it. Close the valve hand-tight.
7. Once the water is at the correct level and air is
bled, turn on the power at the RCD breaker.
NOTE: When the power is turned on to the spa, it
will perform a diagnostic check for approximately five
minutes. When the diagnostic is complete, the spa
will automatically operate at filter speed and continue
heating until the spa water temperature reaches the
default temperature of 37.5˚C.
8. If no water is flowing when the pump is running
there could be an air pocket at the suction side of
the pump. Shut off power to the spa and loosen
the pump union on the suction side of the pump
to bleed the air. When air is bled, turn power
back on.
9. Re-install the filter and the filter basket into the
skimmer/filter canister.
The spa is now ready for use.
NOTE: Never run the spa with the gate valves closed
or without water circulating for long periods of time.
Be careful not to over-tighten the plumbing fittings.

pump has been running for at least two minutes. The
“STAND” icon will display until the mode is changed.
Economy Mode: Economy mode heats the spa to the
set temperature only during filter cycles. The “ECON”
icon will display until the mode is changed. Pressing
the JETS 1 button while in economy mode puts the
spa in standard-in-economy mode, which operates the
same as standard mode but reverts back to economy
mode automatically after one hour. During this
time, pressing the MODE/PROG button will revert to
economy mode immediately.
Sleep Mode: Sleep mode heats the spa to within 11˚C
of the set temperature only during filter cycles. The
“SLEEP” icon will display until the mode is changed.

Circulation Pump (optional)
If your system is equipped with a circulation pump,
it may be configured to work in one of two different
ways:
1. The circulation pump operates continuously (24
hours) with the exception of turning off for 30
minutes at a time when the water temperature
reaches 1.7˚C above the set temperature (most
likely to happen in very hot climates).
2. The circulation pump will come on when the
system is checking temperature, during filter
cycles, during freeze conditions, or when another
pump is on.
The pump and the ozone generator will run during
filtration. At the start of each filter cycle, the blower
will run on highest speed for 30 seconds to clean out
the air channels. The lowest speed of pump 2 and
pump 3 will run for five minutes. In the event of power
loss or shut down, the time of day will need to be
reset for filter cycles to run according to your desired
programming.
Clean-up Cycle
When the pump or blower is turned on by a button
press, a clean-up cycle begins 30 minutes after the
pump or blower is turned off or times out. The pump
and the ozone generator will run for one hour.
Ozone (optional)
On most systems, the ozone generator (if installed)
runs during filter cycles (except when pump 1 is
operating at high speed on a non-circulation system)
and during clean-up cycles. On some systems, the
ozone generator operates whenever the pump runs.
If your system is configured with the optional ozone
disable feature, the ozone generator will turn off for
one hour any time a function button (JETS 1, JETS 2,
OPTION etc.) is pressed.
Freeze Protection
If the temperature sensors detect a drop to 6.7˚C
within the heater, the pump automatically activates
to provide freeze protection. The equipment stays
on until four minutes after the sensors detect that
the spa temperature has risen to 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. Auxiliary
freeze sensor protection acts similarly except with the
temperature thresholds determined by the switch and
without a four minute delay in turnoff.

Water Quality Maintenance
Cal Spas Clear Water Plan
Before You Begin
Great spa water is easily achieved when the right
chemicals and / or systems are used and the Cal Spas
“Clear Water Plan” is implemented. The key to clean,
clear, and safe water is to fully understand how spa
water reacts to users, system operation and chemical
use. The “Clear Water Plan” will help give you that
understanding.
Before you begin a “Clear Water Plan”, you should
understand that chemicals or systems alone will
not take care of your spa water. Other factors such
as Filtration and Bather Load also play an important
part.
The first thing to understand about taking care of your
spa water is that preventive actions are much easier
to do than correcting water quality issues. For this
reason, we offer the “Clear Water Plan” as a simple,
easy to follow guide to clean, safe spa water.
The filter is the part of your spa that removes the
debris from the water. Even though Cal Spas uses
the advanced Bio Clean filter cartridge that protects
itself from bacterial growth, the filter still needs to
be cleaned on a regular basis to maximize your spa’s
filtering performance and heating efficiency.
Follow the Right Plan
Filtration
You will need to decide which chemical plan or
alternative sanitation option works best for your
spa water. Consult your Cal Spas dealer for the right
decision with regards to your lifestyle and spa usage.
Whichever plan you decide on, follow it completely
and don’t take shortcuts. These plans will provide you
with clean, safe, clear spa water with a minimum of
effort.
In addition to spraying off the filter weekly to remove
surface debris, your filter should be deep cleaned
periodically to dissolve scale and other contaminants
that get lodged deep within the filter fibers and impede
the filtration process. Even if the filter looks clean, the
contaminants can clog the fibers and prevent water
from flowing through the filter resulting in the most
common spa problem—no heat, caused by a dirty
filter.
Traditional Chemical Options
Filter Cleaning
Choose from either Bromine tablets or Chlorinating
granules as your sanitizer of choice. Both work well
when the appropriate “Clear Water Plan” is followed.
Make sure you follow all instructions and use only Cal
Spas brand chemicals.
•
Alternative Sanitation
Options
Cal Zone Quest 2000 Ozonator
This system automatically generates ozone gas and
injects it into the spa water. Ozone gas is far superior
to chemical bromine or chlorine in sanitizing spa water.
Saves replacement chemical cost and guards against
forgetting to add chemicals.
Cal Clarity Automatic Bromine
Generator
This system automatically generates and releases
free bromine into the spa water. No more need to add
chemical bromine tablets or chlorine granules. Saves
replacement chemical cost and circumvents the need
to add chemicals on a regular basis.
Place the dirty filter into a bucket of water deep
enough to cover the filter. Add 8 oz of Cal Spas
“Liquid Filter Cleaner” to the bucket of water.
Note: It is a good idea to keep a spare filter to be deep
cleaned while the regular filter is in the spa. This way,
you can rotate the filters and both will last longer.
•
Soak the filter for a minimum of 24 hours.
•
Remove the filter and spray clean with a water
hose. Spray each pleat carefully.
•
Allow filter to dry completely (a minimum of 2
days drying time is recommended).
•
Reinstall filter as described in the “Clear Water
Plan”.
Filtration Cycles
The filtration cycle of your spa is the process that
allows the water to flow through the filter. Your spa
will filter automatically twice each day. The factory set
default time for filtration is usually enough for normal
use, however heavy bather load or frequent use
may require longer filtration times or more frequent
filtration cycles to keep the spa water clean. Consult
your Owner’s Manual for setting your spa’s filtration
times.
2010 Portable Spa
www.calspas.com
LTR20101001, Rev. B
23
•
Never mix chemicals together.
“Bather Load” is the term used to describe the number
of people using a spa, combined with the length of
usage, and the frequency of usage. All these factors
have a great effect on the spa water. The higher the
bather load, the more chemicals need to be added and
a longer filtration time will be needed.
•
Never change chemical brands or types without
completely draining, flushing and thoroughly
cleaning the spa and cover first.
•
Always protect your eyes while introducing
chemicals into the spa. Wear protective eyeglasses
to prevent powdered chemicals from blowing into
the eyes or liquid chemicals from splashing into
the eyes.
•
In the event of overdosing a sanitizing chemical
(chlorine or bromine), immediately turn off the
power to the spa and drain water to a safe and
approved area. Refill with fresh water and proceed
with the “Clear Water Plan” start up.
All versions of the Cal Spas “Clear Water Plan” are
designed for spas with average bather load. (3-4
people, 15 minutes of usage, 3 times a week at 100
degrees) If your bather load exceeds these guidelines,
and you experience water quality problems, increase
the amount of filtration first, (go to the next higher
filtration number) then if water quality is still not
adequate, consult the advise of your Cal Spas dealer
for additional chemical or system recommendations.
Be sure to give them your bather load information.
Chemical Overview
The following information is intended for use with Cal
Spas chemicals only. Other brands of chemicals may
have similar names and/or usage descriptions but due
to manufacturing differences, use of other chemicals
can increase the likelihood of under or over-dosing the
spa chemicals. Damage to the spa or spa’s components
from improper chemicals or chemical usage is not
covered under the spa’s warranty.
Chemical Safety
•
Failure to follow chemical directions may result in
serious injury, sickness, or even death.
•
Read and follow all printed instructions listed on
bottles, packages and in your owner’s manual.
•
Do not exceed chemical dosages as recommended
in the “Clear Water Plan”, or on chemical bottles
and packages. (Most chemical instructions are
figured for a 500 gallon spa however, most spas
hold less than 500 gallons, consult your Owner’s
Manual for the approximate gallons of your spa)
Physical Chemical Hazards
•
Do not allow chemicals to come in contact with
skin, eyes or clothing.
•
Always wear rubber gloves, protective eye wear
and clothing to reduce the risk of chemical contact
and irritation.
•
Remove and wash clothing that may have been
exposed to chemical contact prior to wearing
them again.
•
Inhaling or ingesting chemicals will cause serious
injury, sickness, or even death.
•
Do not mix chemicals. Mixing chemicals together
can cause dangerous chemical reactions including
the release of toxic gas, fire and explosions.
Chemical Storage
Chemicals must be stored completely out of the reach
of children in an area that is well vented, cool, and dry.
Failure to provide a proper area for chemical storage
may result in serious injury, sickness, fire explosion
and even death. Do not store your chemicals inside
the equipment area of your spa.

Traditional Chemical Start Up Bromine Clear Water Plan
Prior to filling a spa for the first time, or after a
routine draining, you will want to follow this start-up
plan to extend water life and performance. If you are
following either the Bromine or Chlorine “Clear Water
Plans”, you will notice that both start-up processes are
the same with the exception of Step 6. As with all
chemical dosages listed in these “Clear Water Plans”,
start-up dosages are intended for 500-gallon spas.
Please adjust the chemical dosages to the capacity of
your particular spa.
This plan and its chemical dosages are intended for
Cal Spas chemicals only. Most chemical manufacturers
use different chemical formulas and strengths. Only
Cal spas chemicals are specially formulated to provide
chemical balance at lower dosages. Always read and
follow printed instructions on chemical bottles and
packages.

Bromine Generator Clear Water Plan
This plan and its chemical dosages are intended for spas equipped with the optional Cal Clarity Automatic
Bromine Generator. The chemical references are designed for Cal Spas chemicals only. Note: Following these
instructions is very important to ensure proper operation of your Cal Clarity Automatic Bromine Generator.
Start Up
1. Clean surface of spa with Cal Spas “MultiPurpose Cleaner”.
2. Apply a protective coat of Cal Spas “Fast
Sheen” to the acrylic surface.
3. Fill spa to proper water level with normal
tap water. (Do not use soft water.)
4. Use Bromine Test Strip and balance the
spa water:
•
Adjust total alkalinity (acceptable
range is 80-120 ppm)
•
Then adjust pH if necessary (between
7.2 to 7.8)
5. Pour in 16 oz. of Cal Spas “Metal Protector”
to center of spa.
6. Test for TDS (total dissolved solids, also known as conductivity) .
•
The ideal range is 50 to 300 ppm.
•
TDS / conductivity must be less than 500 to start with.
7. Phosphate level should be below 200 ppb. Remove phosphates if necessary.
8. Determine the gallons capacity of the spa. Be accurate as this determines the amount of TRU BLU that will
be added. Consult the Pre-Delivery Guide for spa gallons.
9. Power up the spa and make sure all the spa’s pumps are set to high speed. Turn the dial on the face of the
Cal Clarity Bromine Generator to “OFF”.
10. Sprinkle evenly over the surface of the spa, one 2 lb bottle of TRU BLU sodium bromide per 100 US gallons
(370 liters) of water. DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH!
Note: Each bottle of TRU BLU will raise TDS / conductivity amount approximately 500 ppm in a 500 gallon
spa.
11. Allow spa to run for 15 minutes so the TRU BLU can dissolve completely before proceeding to the next
step.

3. Once the desired level has been achieved, turn
the dial down until a maintenance setting is
achieved.
13. Add 2 oz. of Cal Spas “Oxidizer Shock” to help
burn out impurities in fill water.
4. The common maintenance setting for an average
bather load is #4.
14. Turn the dial on the bromine generator clockwise
until the LED display reads 10.
Note: When changing the setting, use bromine test
strips to determine when you have reached the level
you want.
15. This will initiate the build up of a bromine bank.
16. Set the filtration cycle to “continuous” (F-C) for
the first 24 hours.
Once A Week
17. Put the cover on and allow the spa to heat to
desired temperature.
2. Based on test strip readings:
Adjusting The Proper Bromine Levels
1. After start up, decrease the filtration cycle to F-4
and monitor the bromine level until it is within the
recommended range.
2. Use bromine test strips to achieve a 3-5 ppm
recommended level.
Note: It can take several days for the bromine level
to stabilize because the fill water that was used
sometimes contains contaminants that need to be
neutralized, thereby using up the initial bromine that
is generated.
1. Test spa water with bromine test strip.
•
First, adjust alkalinity if necessary.
•
Then, adjust pH if necessary.
•
Increase / decrease bromine production with
dial if required.
3. Remove dirty filter from the spa and rinse off.
4. Place your clean, extra filter cartridge back into
the spa.
5. Add 2 oz of Cal Spas “Oxidizer Shock” to spa. Run
spa for 15 minutes
6. Vacuum debris from the bottom of your spa with
the “Spa Vacuum”.
7. Replace cover.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Removing and Reseating the Pillows
You can remove the pillows for cleaning and maintenance quickly and easily. This method works for all types
of pillows.
Grab the lower edge of the pillow with both hands firmly and pull up. As you do this, the pillow inserts will pop
out of the holes.
Reseat the pillows by aligning the pillow inserts with the holes and striking the pillow hard enough to insert the
pegs back into the holes.
Spa Cover
Important! Keep the spa covered when not in use!
•
Covered spas will use less electricity in maintaining
your set temperature.
•
Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish
from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
•
You are required to keep the spa covered to
maintain warranty coverage.
•
Covering your spa helps prevent children from
drowning in the spa.
See the manual enclosed with your cover for
instructions on mounting the locks and how to lock
and unlock the cover.
In addition, while the spa cover is rigid, it is not
designed to support any weight. Therefore, as a safety
precaution and to preserve the life of your cover, you
must not sit, stand, or lie on it; nor should you place
objects of any kind on top of it.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Draining Your Portable Spa
Your spa should be drained every four to six months,
and refilled with fresh tap water. The following is the
recommended method for draining your spa.
1. Turn off the power at the breaker.
2. Remove all filters.
If your drain valve is mounted on the side of the spa cabinet
as shown at right, proceed to step 5.
If your drain valve is located inside the spa cabinet:
3. Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws to the
access panel and open it.
4. Locate hose ending with the 3/4 inch hose-bib fixture.
5. Hook up the female end of a garden hose to the drain fitting.
6. Place the other end of the garden hose where you would like the water to drain to.
7. Twist the hose-bib fixture counterclockwise and pull to open the drain.
8. Let spa drain completely, then remove garden hose.
9. Twist the hose-bib fixture clockwise to close it.
Winterizing (Cold Climate Draining)
In many areas, the temperature drops below 0°C. We recommend that you always have your spa full of water
and running at normal spa temperatures (26.7°C to 37.8°C). This will help reduce the risk of freezing in your
spa and your spa’s equipment.
Warning: If you find the need to drain your spa, please be aware of the potential of freezing in
your spas equipment and plumbing. Even if the directions below are followed perfectly, there is
no guarantee that your spa will not suffer freeze damage.
Freeze damage is not covered by your warranty.

Cleaning the Cover, Shell and
Pillows
Cal Spas™ All-Purpose Cleaner is an
essential part of maintaining your
spa’s finish. Through normal use,
the spa’s finish can accumulate dirt,
oil, and calcium causing a rough feel
and unsightly scum lines. Cal Spas™
All-Purpose Cleaner is a low detergent, non-abrasive
cleaner specifically formulated to clean the spa without
damaging its acrylic finish.
Due to the constant punishment your spa cover and
pillows receive, you should protect them by applying
Vinyl and Leather Cleaner as part of your monthly
maintenance plan. Cal Spas™ Vinyl and Leather
Cleaner is specifically designed to protect spa covers
and pillows from chemical and ultraviolet light damage.
It accomplishes this without leaving an oily residue
behind that is normally associated with common
automotive vinyl protectants.
The most effective solution to minimize cleaning time
is prevention. When the following steps are followed,
the spa’s finish will actually start to resist most of the
elements that cause calcium build-up and make scum
line clean up easier.
Use of Vinyl and Leather Cleaner
2. Wipe clean with a clean soft cloth.
Cal Spas™ Vinyl and Leather Cleaner should be used
sparingly. Incorrect usage may cause water clarity
issues.

Cal Spas™ Fast Sheen is an essential part of maintaining
your spa’s finish. Through normal use, the spa’s finish
can accumulate dirt, oil, and calcium, causing a rough
feel and unsightly scum lines. Cal

cleaned water back into the spa through various jets.
Spas equipped with the optional Quest 2000 Ozonator
will also receive ozone injection into the filtered water
for further protection against contaminants during
filtration cycles. Filtration also ensures that chemicals
are mixed thoroughly through the water, increasing
performance.
Filtration starts on electronically controlled spas as
soon as the pumps are primed and water flow is
steady. As the flow of water goes through the filter, dirt
and debris is removed and accumulated in the filter
cartridge. As the filter cartridge accumulates dirt and
debris, water flow is restricted and jet performance is
reduced. This can cause your spa to not run or heat
effectively.
Clean your filter regularly and replace as needed.
Filter Cleaning
1. Spray Cal Spas™ Multi-Purpose Cleaner directly to
the spa’s finish.
Your new Cal Spa has been designed for quick and
easy filter maintenance. The filter cartridge should be
cleaned once a week. These instructions apply to both
dual and single filtration systems.
2. Wipe clean with a soft cloth.
1. Turn the power off at the breaker.
3. Repeat on heavily calcified areas.
2. Remove the filter by turning it counterclockwise
and unscrewing the bottom threads. Then pull it
up and out.

entire finish with a soft cloth or sponge.
7. Allow Fast Sheen to dry until white and powdery.
8. Buff clean with a soft cloth, rotating frequently.
IMPORTANT: Cal Spas™ Fast Sheen should not be used
on spas full of water. Only apply to clean, cool, dry
surfaces. Incorrect product usage may cause water
clarity issues.
Cleaning and Replacing the
Filter
Filtration
Filtration is one of the most important steps you can
take to ensure clean, clear water. Regardless of what
some people may think, it is far less expensive to
fix water clarity problems by filtering your spa than
by using excessive amounts of chemicals, excessive
filtration times, or by water replacement.
Cal Spas™ filtration system draws contaminated water
through the exclusive Bio-Clean™ filter removing
debris from the water. It then pumps the newly
3. Clean the filter with a garden hose as follows:
a. Hold the filter vertically.
b. Spray the filter cartridges with a pressure
nozzle, starting from the top and spraying
down each pleat.
c. Turn the filter cartridge over and repeat Step
3b.
d. Deep clean filter cartridge every month. Use
only a Cal Spas™-approved filter-cleaning
chemical.
Exclusive Bio-Clean™ Filter Cartridge
The filter cartridge is designed to remove dirt, sand,
minerals, phosphates, bather waste and other solids
from the spa. Unfortunately, some spa owners fail
to include filter cleaning as part of their chemical
maintenance plan. Filters accumulate debris and
become prime areas for bacteria growth.
The Cal Spas™ exclusive Bio-Clean™ Filter is the
only antibacterial filter cartridge on the market today.
Having a filter cartridge that prevents bacteria growth
is added protection for those times you forget to clean
the filter. We recommend that you only replace your
spa’s filter cartridge with a Bio-Clean™ filter cartridge
for ensured protection and peace of mind.

All Cal Spas portable spas are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship at the time of delivery.
This warranty becomes valid at time of purchase and ends either by specified time-frame listed above, owner-transfer,

to special offers and events and extends through the selling dealer to the original purchaser at the original site of
installation. This warranty excludes Designer Series in-ground spas.
Spa Shell / Structural
LMS warrants against the loss of water through the spa shell due to defects in materials and/or workmanship for a
period of three years.
Interior Surface
LMS warrants against cracks, blisters, peeling, discoloration and delamination of interior surfaces for a period of 3
years.
Equipment

or labor on a covered item. However, the LMS Service Agent may assess a reasonable travel or mileage charge per
service call, which may include diagnostic time. If LMS determines that repair of a covered item is not feasible, LMS
reserves the right to replace the defective merchandise with merchandise equivalent or equal in value to the original
merchandise. In the event of any warranty replacement, all removal, replacement, installation and shipping costs are
the responsibility of the spa owner.
