Attention New Spa Owner!
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Jacuzzi® spa! The following is a
list of automated functions performed by your spa. These functions are listed
below in an attempt to suppress any operational concerns you may have during
the first 24-hours of ownership! Also listed below are important maintenance
recommendations you should observe on a regular basis to protect your new
investment.
Automated Spa Operations
Your new spa is equipped with an automated “blow-out” cycle that clears all
plumbing lines daily to promote maximum water sanitation. Each day at 12:00
PM (noon), pump 2 will automatically turn on for a period of one minute, then go
off. Then pump 1 will turn on and run for one minute to complete the blow-out
cycle. Be aware, the factory programmed blow-out cycle cannot be canceled or
altered!
Maintain Healthy Spa Water
Always maintain your spa’s water chemistry within the following parameters as
defined by the Association of Pool And Spa Professionals/USA:
pH
7.4-7.6
Free Chlorine
3.0-4.0 ppm
Free Bromine
2.0-4.0 ppm
Total Alkalinity
100-120 ppm
Calcium Hardness
150-250 ppm
Always maintain your spa filter as outlined below to ensure healthy spa water.
Refer to page 46-47 for additional information.
Required Filter Maintenance
Your new spa is equipped with an advanced water filtration system that provides
unsurpassed water quality! To ensure maximum water quality at all times, you
should clean the skimming filter cartridge every three months, or as necessary.
See page 41-43 for detailed filter cartridge cleaning instructions.
Required Water Replacement
You should replace the spa’s water every 3 months. The frequency depends on
a number of variables including frequency of use, number of users and attention
paid to water quality maintenance. You will know it is time for a change when you
cannot control sudsing and/or you can no longer get the normal feel or sparkle to
the water, even though the key water balance measurements are all within the
proper parameters. See page 46-47 for additional information.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
HYPERTHERMIA
Prolonged immersion in hot water may induce hyperthermia. A description of the causes, symptoms, and effects of hyperthermia are as follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches
a level several degrees above the normal body temperature of 98.6°F
(37°C). The symptoms of hyperthermia include drowsiness, lethargy,
and an increase in the internal temperature of the body. The effects of
hyperthermia include:
A. Unawareness of impending hazard;
B. Failure to perceive heat;
C. Failure to recognize the need to exit spa;
D. Physical inability to exit spa;
E. Fetal damage in pregnant women; and
F. Unconsciousness and danger of drowning.
A warning sign is provided in your warranty packet. Please install
it at a location near your spa , where it is visible to the user of
the spa. For additional or replacement signs please contact your
local Jacuzzi spa dealer and reference item number #6530-082.
Page CAUTIONS
1. Persons suffering from heart disease, diabetes, high or low blood
pressure, and any condition requiring medical treatment, pregnant
women, the elderly, or infants should consult with a physician before
using a spa.
2. The Consumer Products Safety Commission/USA has stated that
the water temperature in a spa should not exceed 104°F (40°C).
Immersion in water in excess of 104°F (40°C) can be hazardous to
your health.
3. Observe a reasonable time limit when using the spa. Long exposures
at higher temperatures can cause high body temperature. Symptoms
may include dizziness, nausea, fainting, drowsiness, and reduced
awareness. These effects could possibly result in drowning.
4. Do not use the spa under the influence of alcohol, narcotics, or other
drugs. Use of the spa under these conditions may lead to serious
consequences.
5. Always test the spa water temperature before entering the spa. Enter
and exit the spa slowly. Wet surfaces can be very slippery.
6. Never bring any electrical appliances into or near the spa. Never
operate any electrical appliances from inside the spa or when you
are wet unless such appliances are built-in by the manufacturer.
7. Proper chemical maintenance of spa water is necessary to maintain
safe water and prevent possible damage to spa components.
8. Use the straps and clip tie downs to secure the cover when not in
use. This will help to discourage unsupervised children from entering the spa and keep the spa cover secure in high-wind conditions.
There is no representation that the cover, clip tie-downs, or actual
locks will prevent access to the spa.
Page 3.0 Choosing A Location
IMPORTANT: Because of the combined weight of the spa, water and
users, it is extremely important that the base upon which the spa rests
be smooth, flat, level and capable of uniformly supporting this weight,
without shifting or settling, for the entire time the spa is in place. If the
spa is placed on a surface which does not meet these requirements,
damage to the skirt and/or the spa shell may result. Damage caused by
improper support is not covered under warranty. It is the responsibility
of the spa owner to assure the integrity of the support at all times. We
recommend a poured, reinforced concrete slab with a minimum thickness
of 4 inches (10cm). Wood decking is also acceptable provided it is
constructed so that it meets the requirements outlined above.
The spa must be installed in such a manner as to provide drainage away
from it. Placing the spa in a depression without provisions for proper
drainage could allow rain, overflow and other casual water to flood the
equipment and create a wet condition in which it would sit in. For spas
which will be recessed into a floor or deck, install so as to permit access
to the equipment, either from above or below, for servicing. Make certain
that there are no obstructions which would prevent removal of all side
cabinet side panels and access to the jet components, especially on the
side with the equipment bay.
3.1 Outdoor Location
In selecting the ideal outdoor location for your spa, we suggest that you
take into consideration:
1. The proximity to changing area and shelter (especially in colder
weather).
2. The pathway to and from your spa (this should be free of debris so
that dirt and leaves are not easily tracked into the spa).
3. The closeness to trees and shrubbery (remember that leaves and
birds could create extra work in keeping the spa clean).
4. A sheltered environment (less wind and weather exposure can result
in lowered operation and maintenance costs).
5. The overall enhancement of your environment. It is preferable not to
place the spa under an unguttered roof overhang since run-off water
will shorten the life expectancy of the spa cover.
3.2 Indoor Location
For indoor installations many factors need to be considered before
installing a spa indoors.
Page •
Proper Foundation: Consult a Structural Engineer when considering a foundation that will adequately support the spa the entire time
it is in place. Proper support is critical especially if the spa is to rest
on a second story or higher. For spas that are to rest on balconies,
roofs or other platforms not specifically tied into the main structural
support, you should consult a professional Structural Engineer with
experience in this type of application.
•
Proper Drainage: It is extremely important to have in place measures to sufficiently handle excessive water spillage. Be sure the
flooring in which the spa rests on has adequate drainage and can
handle the entire contents of the spa. Be sure to make provisions for
ceilings and other structures that may be below the spas installation.
Areas around your spa can become wet or moist so all flooring and
subsequent furniture, walls and adjacent structures should be able to
withstand or resist water and moisture.
•
Proper Ventilation: Proper ventilation should be discussed with an
Engineer or authority competent enough to understand the necessary provisions needed to vent moist or heated air and air associated
with chemical odors outdoors. When the spa is in use considerable amounts of moisture will escape, potentially causing mold
and mildew over time which can damage certain surfaces and/or
surroundings.
•
Sufficient Access: In the unlikely event that you should ever need
to access or gain entry to any portion of the spa for servicing, it is
highly recommended that you plan your indoor installation to provide
full access to the entire spa.
•
Warranty: Damage caused by not following these guidelines or any
improper installation not in accordance to local codes or authorities is
not covered under the spas warranty. Please consult your local state
or city building ordinances.
Page WARNING: In addition to maintenance of filters and
water chemistry, proper ventilation is recommended to reduce
the risk of exposure to viruses and bacteria that could be present in the air or water. Consult a licensed architect or building
contractor to determine your specific needs if installing your
spa indoors.
4.0 General Electrical Safety Instructions
Your new Jacuzzi® spa is equipped with the “state-of-the-art” Sentry™
equipment system. It contains the most advanced safety and self-protective equipment in the industry. Nonetheless, this spa must be installed
properly to ensure dependable usage. Please contact your local Jacuzzi
dealer or local building department should you have any questions
regarding your installation.
Proper grounding is extremely important. Jacuzzi spas are equipped with
a current collector system. A pressure wire connector is provided on the
surface of the control box, located inside the equipment door (FigureB, page 11) to permit connection of a bonding wire between this point
and any ground metal equipment, metal water pipe or conduit within 5
feet (1.5m) of the spa, or copper clad grounding rod buried within 5 feet
(1.5m) of the spa. Bonding wire must be at least No. 8 AWG (8.4 mm2)
solid copper wire. This is a most important safety assurance feature.
Before installing your spa, check with your local building department to
ensure installation conforms to local building codes.

7.0 Spa Fill Up Procedure
FOR BEST RESULTS, read each step in its entirety before
proceeding with that step.
1. Prepare The Spa For Filling
• Clear all debris from the spa. (Although the spa shell has been
polished at the factory, you may want to treat it with a specially
formulated spa cleaner. Consult your authorized Jacuzzi dealer for
additional information prior to filling spa.
• Remove both ProClear™ skimming and polishing filter lids and filters
as illustrated in section 12.1 (page 41).
2. Fill Spa
• Place the end of your garden hose into empty skimming filter bucket
(filter bucket on your left) as you stand next to the spa. Fill spa half
way, then place the garden hose into the opposite filter bucket (filter
bucket on your right) while adding the remaining fill water.
CAUTION: Never fill with water from a water softener. If your
water is extremely “hard”, it is preferable to fill half-way with
hard water and the rest of the way with softened water. Or,
you may fill entirely with hard water if you use a special water
additive available from your authorized Jacuzzi dealer.
• Fill spa until water level is above all jets and just touching the bottom
of each headrest in its lowest position. DO NOT OVERFILL!
IMPORTANT: Always fill your spa through both filter buckets
after draining. Failure to do so may cause air to be trapped
in either pump, preventing the pump from circulating water.
Remove the hose and replace both filter cartridges as illustrated in section 12.1 (page 41).
3. Turn On Power
Turn on power to spa at the home’s circuit breaker. The heater and
filter/circulation pump will automatically activate. If the control panel
LCD flashes water temperature and “COOL” or “ICE”, this is normal.
Refer to page 48-50 for additional information.
4. Activate Jets Pumps
Turn on all jets(s) pumps when adding chemicals in step
5.
Page 14
5. Add Start-Up Chemicals
Add the spa water chemicals as recommended by your authorized
Jacuzzi spa dealer. See section titled “Water Quality Maintenance”
(page 46) for general guidance.
6. Establish A Stable Sanitizer Reading
Establish a stable sanitizer reading between 3.0-4.0 ppm Chlorine or
2.0-4.0 ppm Bromine. To ensure healthy water conditions, always
maintain a constant sanitizer reading within the levels recommended
by the Association of Pool And Spa Professionals/USA printed on the
inside cover of this manual. If sanitizer levels cannot be stabilized,
perform the decontamination procedure steps 9-15 on the following
page. Note: the “decontamination procedure” steps 9-15 should
also be used after the spa has been “Winterized” (sec. 12.7, page
45) or has been sitting without power for an extended period.
7. Set Spa To Heat
To warm spa water to a comfortable temperature, follow these steps:
• The LCD display on the control panel displays the actual temperature of the spa water. Press either the COOLER
or WARMER
button once to display the “set” temperature for 5 seconds. If you want the water to heat to
a different temperature, simply press COOLER
or
WARMER
within 5 seconds. The set temperature
increases or decreases by one degree each time one of these buttons is pressed.
• The heater will turn off when the temperature corresponding to the
thermostat setting is achieved.
Important Heater Details:
• The maximum temperature for which the spa can be set is 104°F
(40°C) and the minimum is 80°F (27°C).
• For US/Canada spas powered by a service of less than 60 amps,
turn off jets pump #1 and jets pump #2 to operate heater.
• Setting the thermostat at maximum will not accelerate the heating
process. This will only result in a higher ultimate temperature.
• The heater operates until the water reaches the programmed “set
temperature”, then turns off. The heater will reactivate after the
water cools to approximately 1.5° below the “set temperature.”
8. Place Cover On Spa
• Keeping the insulating cover in place anytime the spa is not in use
will reduce the time required for heating, thereby minimizing operating costs.
Page 15
• The time required for initial heat-up will vary depending on the starting water temperature.
DANGER: Risk of injury! Always check water temperature
carefully before entering spa!
Decontamination Procedure (Steps 9-15)
Steps 9-15 below are only required when sanitizer levels are unstable
after performing steps 1-6 above. Disregard steps 9-15 below if sanitizer
levels remain stable at 3.0-4.0 Chlorine or 2.0-4.0 Bromine ppm after
performing steps 1-6 above.
9. Add 2.5 ounces of Sodium Dichlor for every 100 gallons of water.
Refer to the table below for approximate water fill volume by model.
CAUTION: Never add Chlorine tablets (Trichlor) to your
spa for any reason! This chemical may damage components
within your spa and void the manufacturer warranty.
Water Fill Volume by Model
Spa Model
Approximate Fill Volume
J-460....................... 320 US Gallons (1,210 Liters)
J-465....................... 340 US Gallons (1,287 Liters)
J-470....................... 410 US Gallons (1,552 Liters)
J-480....................... 450 US Gallons (1,703 Liters)
10. Leave spa cover open during this step to allow excessive chemical
vapors to exit spa, protecting pillows and plastic knobs from chemical attack. If spa is indoors, open doors and windows
for proper ventilation. Turn on all spa jets pumps for one B
C
hour, open all air controls, and place all massage selector knob(s) in their center “combo” position as shown
A
(right). Note: You will need to press the jets pump
button(s) every 20 minutes since these functions have
an automatic 20 minute time-out that turns them off.
CAUTION: Never leave your spa unattended for any reason
while the cover is open and accessible to small children and
animals!
11. Turn off power to the spa at the circuit breaker, then drain tub as
outlined in section 12.2 (page 43).
Page 16
12. Refill spa with clean tap water from garden hose until water covers
all jets but does not touch the bottom of the lowest headrest with all
headrests in their lowest position (DO NOT OVERFILL!)
CAUTION: Never fill with water from a water softener. If
your water is extremely “hard”, it is preferable to fill half-way
with hard water and the rest of the way with softened water.
Or, you may fill entirely with hard water if you use a special
water additive available from your authorized Jacuzzi dealer.
13. Consult your authorized Jacuzzi dealer for chemical recommendations, then add chemicals to spa water to achieve a constant
sanitizer reading within the levels recommended by the Association
of Pool And Spa Professionals/USA printed on the inside cover of
this manual.
14. Turn on all jet pumps when adding chemicals to ensure proper mixing and leave your spa cover open until the sanitizer level falls below
4.0 ppm to protect pillows and plastic knobs from chemical attack.
CAUTION: Never leave your spa unattended for any reason
while the cover is open and accessible to small children and
animals!
CAUTION: To prevent the unlikely possibility of contracting
a waterborne illness, maintain water chemistry within step 6
parameters. If you or other bathers experience such a condition, discontinue use and seek medical attention.
15. Establish a sanitizer reading between 3.0-4.0 ppm Chlorine or 2.04.0 ppm Bromine, then allow the spa to set undisturbed for 8 hours.
Retest water after 8 hours to determine if sanitizer levels are stable.
If sanitizer levels are stable, your spa is ready for use. To ensure
healthy water conditions, always maintain a constant sanitizer reading within the levels recommended by the Association of Pool And
Spa Professionals/USA printed on the inside cover of this manual.
If sanitizer levels are not stable at this time, it will be necessary to
repeat this procedure in its entirety (steps 1-15) until stable sanitizer
readings are achieved.

10.0 Heating Modes
The control system in your spa activates a programmable “standard” or
“economy” mode which effects when the heater operates. Refer to sections 10.1 and 10.2 below for additional information.
10.1 Standard Mode (Factory Default)
Standard mode is typically selected by customers in cold climates where
heat up times are extended due to lower ambient temperatures. In this
mode, water temperature is regulated by the set temperature which activates the heater automatically as needed.
10.2 Economy Mode
Economy mode is typically selected by customers in warm climates
where heat up times are minimized due to higher ambient temperatures.
In this mode, the water temperature is regulated by the set temperature
only when a programmed filter cycle is running, unless in summer logic
(page 38).
10.3 Selecting Standard or Economy Mode
Press the MODE
button to select either “Standard” or “Economy”
mode. The control panel’s indicator on the right side of the LCD changes
to indicate which mode is selected.
10.4 Clean-Up “Blow-Out” Cycle
The clean-up cycle is once per day in both Standard and Economy
modes at 12:00 (noon) for two minutes. This is not user programmable.
Jets pump 2 activates for one minute to circulate any water in the plumbing. After 1 minute, jets pump 2 shuts off and jets pump 1 turns on, runs
for 1 minute, then shuts off.
Page 36
11.0 Programming Instructions

circulation pump automatically turns on for a heat call regardless of the
pump’s programmed start time and duration.
11.2 Programming Filter Cycles
Your spa comes with four 30-minute filter cycles which activate the filter/
circulation pump. These cycles are factory programmed to start at 6:00
am, 12:00 (noon), 6:00 p.m., and 12:00 (Midnight). The control system
allows you to easily adjust two separate aspects of each cycle: 1) the
time of day at which it begins; 2) the duration of the cycle.
Note: When “Standard” mode is selected (sec. 10.3, page 36) and the
filter/circulation pump is set to the factory default duration of 24-hours
(sec. 11.1), each cycle is displayed on the main control panel, when
Page 37
running, but no apparent change of operation will occur. However, when
“Economy” mode is selected (sec. 10.3, page 36), the heater activates
only during a programmed filter cycle.
When in a Summer Logic condition is active (see note below), the filter/
circulation pump will turn on for all programmed filter cycles.
Summer Logic: In warm weather, the water temperature in the spa
may exceed the set temperature. This condition may occur due to
heat transference from the filter/circulation pump and jets pumps.
If the water temperature is higher than 95°F (35°C) and rises two
degrees above the set temperature, a “Summer Logic” condition occurs
that deactivates the filter/circulation pump and optional ozonator (if
equipped). This safety feature cannot be altered! The filter/circulation
pump and ozonator will remain off until the water temperature cools to
the set temperature (except between 12AM-2AM when the filter/circulation pump runs for it’s mandatory 2-hour cycle). To help prevent a
“Summer Logic” condition, it may be necessary to reduce filter/circulation pump cycles run times in warm weather.
To make adjustments, first press the CYCLE
button to enter the filter
cycle programming mode. The LCD screen will display the following in
the upper right corner:
1*
*Note: Number will
vary according to which
filter cycle is being
programmed.
This means the system is ready to accept your changes to the start time
for cycle number one. Simultaneously, the large four-digit display in the
center of the screen displays the currently programmed start time for that
cycle. At this point, you have four options. You may:
1. Press WARMER
or COOLER
button to adjust the start
time in increments of 30 minutes.
2. Press CYCLE
button to display and adjust each subsequent
cycles start time. With each press, the currently programmed status
will be shown in the large four digit display. To adjust any displayed
value, simply press the WARMER
or COOLER
button.
3. Press SELECT
button to move down the menu from Start Time to
Duration, with each press, the currently programmed duration will be
shown in the large four-digit display. Press WARMER
or COOLER
button to adjust the duration in increments of 15 minutes.
Page 38
4. Press DISPLAY
button to save changes and recall the main
water temperature display. Note: If no button is pressed within 30
seconds, all changes are recorded and the screen automatically
returns to the standard water temperature display.
When a programmed filter/heating cycle activates, the LCD screen
displays the following message:
1*
*Note: Number will
vary according to which
filter cycle is being
programmed.
At any time, you may check the programming of any aspect of any filter/
heating cycle by first pressing CYCLE
button then moving through
the menu by pressing either CYCLE
or SELECT
button. The
programming is changed only by pressing WARMER
or COOLER
buttons during this process.
11.3 Adjusting Time of Day
The Sentry control system remembers the time of day even in the event
of a prolonged power outage. However, it may occasionally be necessary to reset the time of day. For example: if you are not in the Pacific
Time Zone you will want to reset the time for your own time zone. (The
system will automatically adjust to and from daylight savings time.) To
accomplish this, press DISPLAY
, MODE
and DISPLAY
buttons within five seconds each. A number representing the hour will
be displayed, followed by AM or PM. The hour will advance or decrease
each time WARMER
or COOLER
button is pressed within five
seconds. Then, press DISPLAY
button again to display the minutes. Adjust the minutes as necessary by pressing WARMER
or
COOLER
button. After 5 seconds, the display will return to normal
and save your settings.
11.4 Main Control Panel Lock

11.7 Programming The Change Filter Reminder
Your new spa is equipped with a programmable “Change Filter” reminder
icon that flashes on the control panel display after a specified number of
days. It is designed to remind you to clean the skimmer filter cartridge on
a regular basis but does not affect spa operation in any way. The
“Change Filter” reminder must be reset at each filter cleaning
interval. It offers a selectable range from 10-120 days or can be
disabled (turned off). We recommend an initial setting of 60 days
(2 months) to remind you to check your filters after your first 2
months of operation. At this time, you can easily determine whether you
need to change this interval by visually inspecting the filter cartridge an
polishing bag. Note: this reminder must be reset at each filter cleaning
interval. Refer to section 12.1 below for filter cleaning instructions.
Programming Instructions
1. Press the CYCLE
button 6 times. The main display reads “FIL”
indicating the “Change Filter” display program has been accessed.
2. Press SELECT
button once to display the currently programmed
duration or to view days elapsed since last filter cleaning interval.
3. Press WARMER
or COOLER
button to change duration
setting as follows:
0 - 10 - 20 - 30 - 40 - 50 - 60 - 70 - 80 - 90 - 100 - 110 - 120 - OFF
4. Press DISPLAY
button once to save changes and return to the
standard water temperature display. Note: If no button is pressed
within 30 seconds, all changes are recorded and the screen automatically returns to the standard water temperature display.
12.0 Spa Maintenance
Proper and regular maintenance of your spa will help it retain its beauty
and performance. Your authorized Jacuzzi dealer can supply you with
all the information, supplies, and accessory products you will need to
accomplish this.
12.1 Cleaning The Filter Cartridges
A programmable “Change Filter” reminder icon flashes on the
control panel display after a specified number days to remind
you to clean the skimmer filter and to check the polishing bag
filter. This reminder must be reset at each filter cleaning interval.
Refer to section 11.7 (above) for additional information and programming details. Your new spa is equipped with an advanced
2-stage filtration system. Fine debris are filtered by the circulation
pump drawing water through the ProClear™ skimmer and pleated filter
Page 41
cartridge 24-hours (unless programmed otherwise). Large debris are filtered when either jets pump is running when the spa is in use or during a
programmed filter cycle. These pumps draw water from footwell suction
fitting and through a secondary water polishing bag filter. The exclusive
footwell “sweeper” suction fitting enhances filtration in the footwell area
by creating a “swirling” water motion to maximize particle agitation and
pickup.
To ensure optimum performance, the 24-hour ProClear™
skimming filter cartridge (A) must be cleaned every three
months and replaced once a year and the secondary
ProClear™ Plus polishing filter bag (B) should be emptied
weekly and replaced every 3 months. To accomplish this,
refer to the following filter cleaning procedure. Note: Do not
attempt to wash the polishing filter bag (B) or it will come apart!

12.2 Draining and Refilling
About every 3 to 6 months, you will want to replace the spa’s water. The
frequency depends on a number of variables including the amount of
use, number of users, attention paid to water quality maintenance, etc.
You will know it is time for a change when you cannot control sudsing
and/or you can no longer get the normal feel or sparkle to the water even
though the key water balance measurements are all within the proper
parameters.
CAUTION! READ THIS BEFORE DRAINING: To prevent
damage to the spas components, turn off power to the spa at
the circuit breaker before draining it. Do not turn the power
back on until your spa has been refilled.
CAUTION: There are certain precautions to keep in mind
when draining your spa . If it is extremely cold, and the spa is
outdoors, freezing could occur in the lines or the equipment
(see “WINTERIZING”, page 45). On the other hand, if it is hot
outdoors, do not leave the spa’s surface exposed to direct
sunlight.
To drain your spa, perform the following steps:
1. Turn off power to spa.
1. Turn off power to spa at breaker.
2. Locate the drain valve located on the front left
corner on the black plastic pan. Hold the larger
(rear) drain valve body to prevent it from turning, then loosen and remove the front cap to
expose the underlying male hose threads.
2.
3.
3. Attach a garden hose to the exposed threads.
Page 43
4. Gently rotate the larger (rear) valve body 1/3 turn counterclockwise
to unlock the drain valve.
5. Pull the larger (rear) body outward as shown
to open drain.
6. After the spa drains, perform steps 2-5 in
reverse order to close the drain prior to refilling
spa.
4.
Unlock
Drain
5.
Open Drain
­­
After
refilling, turn on power to the spa and follow
the steps listed under “Spa Fill Up Procedures.” (page 14). Always fill
your spa through both filter buckets.
12.3 Cleaning The Spa Interior
To preserve the sheen of your spa’s surface, it is crucial that you avoid
using abrasive cleaners or cleaners which have adverse chemical effect
on the surface. If you are not certain as to the suitability of a particular
cleanser, consult your authorized Jacuzzi dealer. Regardless of the
cleanser used, use extreme care to assure that no soap residue is left on
the surface. This could cause severe sudsing when the spa is refilled.
12.4 Pillow Care
Clean the four headrests in your spa as needed by wiping them with a
clean cloth or soft brush saturated with detergent soap. It is not necessary to remove the headrests for cleaning.
To remove headrests for long term storage or replacement, grasp both
ends of each headrest and gently pull inward towards the center of the
spa. To reinstall, over mounting strip and press down until headrest
mounting bracket emits a “click” sound. Then adjust headrest height by
simply moving up or down as desired.
12.5 Maintaining The Synthetic Cabinet
The synthetic cabinet requires little or no maintenance of any kind. To
clean, simply wipe cabinet with a clean towel and mild detergent soap
solution.
Page 44
CAUTION: Never spray cabinet with a high pressure garden
hose for any reason since this action may induce an electrical
short in the spa’s electrical equipment.
12.6 Maintaining The Cover
Using the Jacuzzi insulating spa cover anytime the spa is not in use will
significantly reduce your operating costs, heat-up time, and maintenance
requirements. To prolong the life of the cover, handle it with care and
clean it regularly using mild soap and water. Periodic treatments with a
special conditioner developed for Jacuzzi spa covers will help protect
against deterioration caused by U.V. rays from the sun. Never allow
anyone to stand or sit on the cover, and avoid dragging it across rough
surfaces.
12.7 Winterizing
Your Jacuzzi spa is designed to automatically protect itself against freezing when operating properly. During periods of severe freezing temperatures, you should check periodically to be certain that the electrical supply to the spa has not been interrupted. In extreme, bitter cold weather
(less than -20°F) verify the filter/circulation pump is set for 24-hour operation (sec. 11.1, page 37) and that standard mode is selected (sec. 10.3
page 36) to protect the spa from freezing.
If you do not intend to use your spa, or if there is a prolonged power outage during periods of severe freezing temperatures, it is important that all
water be removed from the spa and equipment to protect against damage from freezing.
For expert winterization of your spa, contact your authorized Jacuzzi
dealer. In emergency situations, damage can be minimized by taking the
following steps:
CAUTION: Turn off power to spa.
1. Follow the directions on page 43-44 for draining the spa.
Page 45
2. As the water level drops below the seats, use whatever means necessary to get the water out of the recessed seating areas and into
the footwell.
3. When the water level ceases to drop, use whatever means available
to remove any remaining water from the footwell.
4. Remove the equipment-side cabinet panels and locate the drain
plugs in the front of each pump (Figure-A, page 11). Remove these
plugs to allow the water to drain out of the pumps and heater. (Note:
Approximately one to two gallons will be released during this procedure. Use a wet/dry vacuum or other means to keep this from flooding the equipment compartment. Replace the drain plugs.
5. Loosen hose clamp at bottom of heater (Figure-A, page 11) and pull
hose off of heater fitting (twist the hose back and forth while pulling
downward). Tip hose down and allow to drain, then reinstall hose
and clamp.
6. Re-install cabinet side panels and cover spa so that no casual moisture can enter into it.
Consult your Jacuzzi dealer if you have any questions regarding winter
use or winterizing.
12.8 Restarting Your Spa in Cold Weather
If you want to start up your spa after it has sat empty for a time in freezing temperatures, be aware that the water remaining in certain sections
of the piping may still be frozen. This situation will block water flow
preventing the spa from operating properly and possibly damaging the
equipment. We recommend you consult your dealer for guidance before
attempting to restart your spa under these conditions.
13.0 Water Quality Maintenance
Maintaining the quality of the water within specified limits will serve to
enhance your enjoyment and prolong the life of the spa’s equipment. It
is a fairly simple task, but it requires regular attention because the water
chemistry involved is a balance of several factors. There is no simple
formula, and there is no avoiding it. Procrastination in regard to water
maintenance will result in poor and potentially unhealthful conditions for
soaking and even damage to your spa investment. For specific guidance
on maintaining water quality, consult your Authorized Jacuzzi dealer who
can recommend appropriate chemical products for sanitizing and maintaining your spa.
Page 46
CAUTION: Never store spa chemicals inside the spa’s
equipment bay.
13.1 pH Control
pH is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity of water and is measured
on a scale of 0 to 14. The midpoint of 7 is said to be neutral, above
which is alkaline and below which is acidic. In spa water, IT IS VERY
IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN a slightly alkaline condition of
7.4 to 7.6. Problems become proportionately severe the further outside
of this range the water gets. A low pH will be corrosive to metals in the
spa equipment. A high pH will cause minerals to deposit on the interior
surface (scaling). In addition, the ability of the sanitation agents to keep
the spa clean is severely affected as the pH moves beyond the ideal
range. That is why almost all spa water test kits contain a measure for
pH as well as sanitizer.
13.2 Sanitizing
To destroy bacteria and organic compounds in the spa water, a
sanitizer must be used regularly. Your Jacuzzi spa is equipped with the
Brominator™, a special compartment built into the floating skimmer gate
to hold Bromine tablets. By regulating the number of Bromine tablets
in the Brominator™ you can control the amount of Bromine which is
actively working in your spa water. A Bromine residual of 2.0-4.0 ppm is
generally considered desirable. A two-part Bromine system or granular
Chlorine (Dichlor) are also acceptable sanitizers.
IMPORTANT: Do not use Chlorine tablets (Trichlor) in your
spa. This chemical can have an extremely corrosive effect on
certain materials in the spa. Damage caused by use of this
chemical, or improper use of any chemicals, is not covered
under the spa’s warranty.
13.3 Other Additives
Many other additives are available for your spa. Some are necessary
to compensate for out-of-balance water, some aid in cosmetic water
treatment and others simply alter the feel or smell of the water. Your
Authorized Jacuzzi dealer can advise you on the use of these additives.
Page 47
13.4 Optional Ozone Water Maintenance System
If you have elected to have your spa equipped with the optional Jacuzzi
CD Ozone water purification system you will find that your water stays
fresh and clear with significantly less chemical sanitizer usage. You will
also probably be able to go longer between complete spa draining.
14.0 Troubleshooting - Display Messages
There are a number of unique functions designed into your Jacuzzi spa
to protect it from damage and/or to aid in troubleshooting. Following is a
listing of all the possible messages along with their meanings:
MESSAGE
MEANING
Overheat Protection (Heater is deactivated, filter/
circulation pump is activated). Water temperature
is above acceptable limits. Do not enter the water!
Remove spa cover to speed cooling. See “Water Is
Too Hot” on page 52. If condition persists, contact
your dealer or authorized service center.
If the spa water is more than 20°F cooler than the
temperature set point, jets pump #1 and heater will
automatically activate to provide freeze protection.
The spa will stay in this mode until the water temperature reaches 15 degrees below the set temperature. No corrective action is necessary.
FLOW SWITCH (Heater is deactivated. The filter/circulation may also be deactivated). Proper flow of
water is inhibited or a flow switch has malfunctioned. Check for proper water level and for clogged
filter (page 41-42). Contact your dealer or service
