680 SERIES OWNER’S MANUAL

Denali® | Edison® | McKinley™ | Peyton® | Ramona™ | Tacoma®

Attention New Spa Owner!

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Sundance® 680 Series spa! The following is a list of automated functions and maintenance recommendations for your new spa. Automated functions have been listed below in an attempt to suppress any operational concerns you may have during startup and the first 24 hours of ownership! Maintenance recommendations are listed in an attempt to stress their importance in protecting your new spa.

Automated Operations

Approximately two minutes after power is applied to the spa, the first filtration/heating cycle turns on pump 1. With two pump models, an automatic five minute “blow-out” function also activates pump 2 for a period of five minutes to flush all lines. Then, after five minutes, pump 2 turns off and pump 1 continues to operate for the duration of the cycle.

Note: This function only occurs during the first filtration/heating cycle each day.

Maintain Healthy Spa Water

Always maintain your spa’s water chemistry within the following parameters: pH

Free chlorine

Free Bromine

Total Alkalinity

Calcium Hardness

with CLEARRAY®

7.4-7.6

no less than 1.0 ppm no less than 2.0 ppm

100-150 ppm

150-250 ppm

without CLEARRAY®

7.4-7.6

3.0-4.0 ppm

2.0-4.0 ppm

100-150 ppm

150-250 ppm

IMPORTANT: CLEARRAY® Water Purification System is factory installed. If the

CLEAR RAY® system is altered or is not operating efficiently then follow the “without

CLEAR RAY®” water chemistry parameters as defined by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals. CLEAR RAY® requires an annual bulb replacement to properly sanitize your water.

! TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR DISEASE!

Always maintain

your spa filter as outlined below to ensure healthy spa water. Refer to page 34 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 and reuse both filter cartridges every month or as needed. See page

34 for detailed filter cleaning/replacement instructions.

Required Water Maintenance

! TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR DISEASE!

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

pages 39-40 for additional information.

Sundance spas dealer and reference item number #6530-082.

3.3 Important CSA Safety Instructions (Canada only)

When using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.

2. A green colored terminal or a terminal marked G, Gr, Ground,

Grounding or the symbol* is located inside the supply terminal box or compartment. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this terminal must be connected to the grounding means provided in the electric supply service panel with a continuous copper wire equivalent in size to the circuit conductors that supply this equipment

(*IEC Publication 417, Symbol 5019).

3. At least two lugs marked “Bonding Lugs” are provided on the external surface or on the inside of the supply terminal box/ compartment. To reduce the risk of electric shock, connect the local common bonding grid in the area of the spa to these terminals with an insulated or bare copper conductor not smaller than No. 6 AWG

(10 mm²).

4. All field-installed metal components such as rails, ladders, drains or other similar hardware within 10 feet (3m) of the spa shall be bonded to the equipment grounding buss with copper conductors not smaller than No. 6 AWG (10 mm²).

5. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

3.4 General Electrical Safety Instructions

Your new Sundance ® spa is equipped with a “state-of-the-art” 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

Sundance dealer or local building department should you have any questions regarding your installation.

Proper grounding is extremely important. Sundance spas are equipped with a current collector system. A pressure wire connector is provided on the surface of the control box, located outside the equipment door

(Figure B, page 16) 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

Page 8

680 SERIES 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 insure installation conforms to local building codes.

120/240 Volt Denali And Tacoma Convertible Models

A spa connected to a 120 VAC electrical service must be located close enough to a grounded, grounding-type electrical outlet so that the included 10 foot (3m) power cord can be plugged directly into it. DO NOT

USE AN EXTENSION CORD as this could cause damage to the spa’s equipment due to insufficient voltage. The power supplied to this spa must be a dedicated circuit with no other appliances or lights sharing the power provided by the circuit.

4.0 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 over time. We recommend a poured, reinforced concrete slab with a minimum thickness of 4 inches

(10 cm). Wood decking is also acceptable provided it is constructed so that it meets the requirements outlined above.

!

WARNING: For spas that are to rest on balconies, roofs or other platforms not specifically tied into main

structural support, consult a professional Structural

Engineer with experience in this type of application.

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

Page 9

680 SERIES 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 panels and access to the jets components, especially on the side with the equipment bay.

CAUTION:

If the spa is indoors or located in an enclosed area, 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. This can cause health risk. Over time, this can damage certain surfaces, surroundings, and equipment.

4.1 Outdoor Location

In selecting the ideal outdoor location for your spa, we suggest that you take into consideration the following:

• The proximity to changing area and shelter (especially in regions subject to cold weather).

• 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).

• The closeness to trees and shrubbery (remember that leaves and birds could create extra work in keeping the spa clean).

• A sheltered environment (less wind and weather exposure can result in lowered operation and maintenance costs).

• 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.

• For spas that are to rest on balconies, roofs or other platforms not specifically tied into main structural support, consult a professional

Structural Engineer with experience in this type of application.

• 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 outdoor installation to provide full access to the entire spa. Please take this into consideration when placing the spa in a deck or enclosed by a surrounding.

• Consider locating your spa away from any reflective surface or glass to prevent any damage to the synthetic skirt.

• Do not shim the spa. To ensure proper support the spa must sit flat on the intended foundation.

Page 10

680 SERIES

4.2 Indoor Location

For indoor installations many factors need to be considered before installing a spa indoors:

!

WARNING: In addition to maintenance of filters and water chemistry, proper ventilation is recommended to reduce the risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments that could be present in the air or water. Consult a licensed architect or building contractor to determine your specific needs if installing your hot tub indoors.

• 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 draining of the entire contents of the spa. Be sure to make provisions for ceilings or any 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 this 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 with local codes or authorities is not covered under the spas warranty. Please consult your local state or city building ordinances.

• DO NOT SHIM THE SPA: To ensure proper support the spa must sit flat on the intended foundation.

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 Sundance dealer for additional information prior to filling spa.

• Remove filter/skimmer lid (pages 24 and 25), then remove

filter cartridge as outlined in Section 11.1 (page 34).

2. Fill Spa

• Place the end of your garden hose into the empty filter bucket.

CAUTION: TO DECREASE BUILD UP ON COMPONENTS AND

MINIMIZE ACRYLIC DAMAGE.

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. Water that is too soft can be corrosive to metal components.

!

WARNING: TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR

DISEASE.

Fill hot tub with clean tap water from garden hose, to reduce risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments. Fill until water covers all jets but does not touch the bottom of the lowest headrest. (DO NOT OVERFILL!)

IMPORTANT: Always fill your spa through the filter bucket 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 the filter cartridge. Note: DO NOT overtighten filter cartridge, finger tight only!

3. Turn On Power

Turn on power to spa at the home’s circuit breaker to start boot up

sequence (Section 9.0, page 2). The heater and filter pump will

automatically activate after several seconds. If the control panel LED flashes water temperature and “COL” or “ICE” this is normal, refer to

page 44 for additional information.

Note: “COL” and “ICE” will only appear when the spa is in Economy mode.

Page 18

680 SERIES

4. Activate Jets Pumps

Turn on jets pump(s) to ensure proper mixing when adding start-up chemicals in step 5.

1

5. Add Start-Up Chemicals

Add the spa water chemicals as recommended by your authorized

Sundance dealer. See Section titled “Water Quality Maintenance”

(page 39) for general guidance.

2

!

WARNING: RISK OF POISONING OR DEATH.

Never leave chemicals opened and accessible to anyone.

Use chemicals according to the vendors instructions. Always store chemicals in a safe and/or locked location. Keep away from and out of reach of children.

6. Establish A Stable Sanitizer Reading

Establish a stable sanitizer reading no less than 1.0 ppm chlorine or 2.0 ppm bromine. To ensure healthy water conditions, always maintain a constant sanitizer reading within the levels recommended 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” (Section 11.7, page 37) 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 LED 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.

Page 19

680 SERIES

Important Heater Details:

• The maximum temperature for which the spa can be set is 104°F

(40°C) and the minimum is 65°F (18°C).

• For North American (60 Hz) 2-pump spas powered by a 40 amp service, jets pump #1 must be set to low speed and jets pump #2 must be turned off to operate the heater.

• For Export (50 Hz) 2-pump spas powered by a 20 amp service, jet pump #1 must be set to low speed and jets pump #2 must be turned off to operate the 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.

• The time required for initial heat-up will vary depending on the starting water temperature.

!

DANGER:

RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.

Check water temperature carefully before entering hot tub!

Excessive water temperature can cause burns, welts and body temperature to rise, hyperthermia (over-heating).

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 within the levels recommended on the inside cover of this manual.

9. Add 2.5 ounces (71 g) of sodium dichlor for every 100 gallons (378

Liters) of water. Refer to the table below for approximate water fill volume by model.

!

CAUTION: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY OR SPA DAMAGE!

Never add chlorine tablets (trichlor) or acid to your hot tub for any reason! These chemicals may damage components within your hot tub, burn or irritate your skin, create a rash, and void the manufacturer warranty for your spa.

680 SERIES

CAUTION: TO DECREASE BUILD UP ON COMPONENTS AND

MINIMIZE ACRYLIC DAMAGE.

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. Water that is too soft can be corrosive to metal components.

13. Consult your authorized Sundance dealer for chemical recommendations, then add chemicals to spa water to achieve a constant sanitizer reading within the levels recommended on the inside cover of this manual.

14. Turn on jets pump(s) when adding chemicals to ensure proper mixing and leave your spa cover open until the sanitizer level becomes stable to protect pillows and plastic knobs from chemical attack.

Refer to the inside cover of the manual.

!

WARNING: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.

• To decrease the risk of injury, entrapment or drowning, never leave your hot tub unattended for any reason, especially if while the cover is open and accessible to small children and animals!

• To decrease the risk of contracting a waterborne illness

(e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments, maintain water chemistry within 6 step parameters. If you or other bathers experience such a condition, discontinue use and seek immediate medical attention.

15. Establish a sanitizer reading no less than 1.0 ppm free chlorine or 2.0 ppm bromine, then allow the hot tub 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 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.

IMPORTANT: If the CLEARRAY® water purification system is removed from the hot tub or is not operating effectively follow the “without

CLEAR RAY®” water chemistry parameters as defined by the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals.

16. After adequate sanitizer levels are achieved, close all spa air controls to maximize heat retention when spa is not in use.

9.0 Operating Instructions

The spa control system has automatic functions that operate upon start-up and normal operation to protect the system. Upon power up, the readout displays the following information:

1. Control panel displays current software release, then;

2. Control panel displays “888” and all indicator LEDs are lit, permitting visual inspection of all display segments and indicator lights for proper operation.

3. After the initial start-up sequence ends, the actual water temperature is displayed. If water temperature at this time is less than the factory default temperature setting of 100°F (38°C) and the spa is set to either

of the standard filtration/heating modes (page 31), the heater will

turn on and run until the water temperature rises to the factory setting, then turn off.

Note: It is common for the heater to turn on after the spa is first filled because tap water is often very cold.

9.1 Setting Water Temperature

The spa’s thermostat provides optimum control of water temperature. The temperature setpoint (set temperature) can be adjusted from 65°F to 104°F (18°C to 40°C).

10.0 Automatic Filtration Cycles

The control system activates a programmable “Standard” or “Economy” filtration cycle to remove debris from your spa. These cycles use the low speed pump, skimmer basket, and filter cartridge quickly clear “skim” the water of debris and minimize their “bathtub ring” affect. Apart from their filtration benefit, each mode also effects the operation of your spa’s heater.

Note: With two pump models, an automatic five minute “blow-out” function also activates pump 2 for a period of five minutes to flush all lines. Then, after five minutes, pump 2 turns off and pump 1 continues to operate for the duration of the cycle. This function only occurs during the first filtration/heating cycle each day .

10.1 Standard Filtration/Heating Modes (F1-F3)

Standard filtration/heating modes (F1-F3) are typically selected by customers in cold climates where heat up times are extended due to lower ambient temperatures. In either of these modes, the set temperature regulates the water temperature. The low-speed jets pump

1 and heater turn on as needed. After the programmed set temperature is reached, the heater and low speed pump turn off; only to turn back on during a heat call and/or during the next programmed filtration/heating cycle.

10.2 Economy Filtration/Heating Modes (F4-F6)

Economy filtration/heating modes are typically selected by customers in warm climates where heat up times are minimized due to higher ambient temperatures. In these modes, the water temperature is regulated by the set temperature only during a programmed filtration/heating cycle. The heater will turn on only when there is a heat call during a programmed filtration/heating cycle.

Note: These modes consume less energy than standard modes F1-F3 outlined above.

10.3 Lock Modes (L1-L3)

These modes are designed for use during spa service or to prevent unauthorized use.

11.0 Spa Maintenance

Proper and regular maintenance of your spa will help it retain its beauty and performance. Your authorized Sundance dealer can supply you with all the information, supplies, and accessory products you will need to accomplish this.

DANGER:

RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DROWNING

BY ENTRAPMENT!

• Keep hair, loose articles of clothing or hanging jewelry away from suction fittings, rotating jets or other moving components to avoid entrapment that could lead to drowning or severe injury.

• Never use the spa unless all suction guards, filter, filter lid, or skimmer assembly are installed to prevent body and/or hair entrapment.

• Never operate or use the spa if the filter, filter lid, or skimmer assembly are broken or any part of the skimmer assembly is missing.

Please contact your dealer or nearest service center for service.

• The suction fittings and suction covers in this spa are sized to match the specific water flow created by the pump(s). If it is necessary to replace the suction fittings, suction covers or pump(s), be sure that the flow rates are compatible and are in compliance

with the VGB Safety Act page 2.

• Never replace a suction fitting or suction cover with one rated less than the flow rate marked on the original suction fitting. Using improper suction fittings or suction covers can create a body or hair suction entrapment hazard that may lead to drowning or severe injury.

• Owners must alert all spa users to the potential risk of Hair, Limb,

Body, Evisceration (disembowelment), and Mechanical Entrapment,

page 6.

DANGER:

TURN POWER TO SPA OFF! TO DECREASE RISK OF

DEATH, DROWNING, OR ENTRAPMENT, NEVER OPERATE SPA WHEN

FILTER IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED OR IF SKIMMER ASSEMBLY IS

DAMAGED OR ALTERED!

Your Sundance spa is equipped with a skimmer basket and filter cartridge located in the skimmer/filter well. Filtering is accomplished when the pump turns on in low speed to initiate water flow through the skimmer basket and polyester mesh filter cartridge. As this happens, suspended particles become trapped on the filter’s surface. To ensure optimum performance, it is necessary to remove and clean the skimmer basket once a week and filter cartridge once a month or sooner, depending on usage and water quality.

Page 34

SPA SHELL

680 SERIES

Cleaning Procedure (for All Models):

1. Turn off power to the spa at the home’s breaker panel or select

the L1 “Lock” mode (page 30) to disable all spa functions.

2. Remove the filter strainer lid or skimmer assembly.

3. Remove the filter cartridge by rotating it counterclockwise to unthread it from the filter wall fitting, then lift it straight up to remove from filter well.

4. Using a garden hose with a high-pressure nozzle to rinse debris from the filter pleats beginning at the top and working your way downward.

Continue, one section at a time, until you have rinsed all of the filter’s pleats.

Periodically, the filter cartridge will need a more thorough cleaning to remove imbedded oils and minerals. For this, we suggest cleaning as above and then soaking the cartridge overnight in a plastic container filled with a solution of water and a specially formulated filter cleanser available from your authorized Sundance dealer. The average life expectancy of a Sundance filter cartridge is approximately two years with proper care and water quality maintenance. A replacement cartridge may be purchased from your dealer.

11.2 Draining and Refilling

About every 3 months, you will want to replace the spa’s water. The frequency depends on a number of variables including the amount of use, 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 spa’s 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. 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

37). 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 (actual drain may vary from one shown). Turn off power to spa at breaker.

1. Locate and remove the synthetic cabinet and screws. The synthetic cabinet is located directly below the control panel and is easily identified by it’s vertical cooling slots.

Figure A

Page 35

680 SERIES

2. Locate drain hose line attached to 2 x 4 wood slat

(Figure A) with tie wraps.

3. Cut tie wraps and pull drain hose from equipment area (Figure B).

4. Hold drain hose above water line, then unthread drain cap (1) from hose using a counterclockwise rotation (Figure B). Place hose on ground making sure to direct water away from spa. If equipped, turn valve (2) counterclockwise to open the valve

(Figure C).

5. After spa has completely drained, reinstall drain cap on drain valve finger tight! DO NOT

OVERTIGHTEN! If equipped turn valve (2) clockwise to close the valve.

6. Place drain hose back inside the spa equipment bay.

Figure C

Drain location and appearance may vary.

7. Reinstall synthetic cabinet and screws.

8. After refilling spa, turn on power and follow the “Spa Fill Up

Procedure” (page 18).

11.3 Pillow Care (All Models Except Denali)

Remove and clean the headrest pillows as needed with soapy water using a cloth or soft-bristle brush. To maintain water resistance and luster, apply a quality vinyl conditioner once a month. Always remove the pillows when adding chemical shock treatment to the spa water. The pillows can be returned to the spa when the sanitizer reading is stable as recommended on the inside cover of the manual.

11.4 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 Sundance 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.

11.5 Maintaining The Cover

Using the Sundance 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. Below are the care instructions.

A. To Clean and Condition the Vinyl Cover

1. Use a garden hose to loosen debris and dirt.

2. Using a large sponge or a soft bristle brush, use diluted or mild soap and scrub the vinyl top. Rinse clean and do not allow soap to dry on cover. Do not use soap on the underside of the cover.

Page 36

680 SERIES

3. Please check with your Sundance Spa Dealer for recommended cover care and conditioning products. Condition using non-petroleum based conditioners to keep the vinyl supple and threads/stitching from drying out. Do not use solvents, abrasive cleaners or strong detergents. Do not use products that contain silicone or alcohol.

B. Additional Care and Maintenance Instructions:

1. Debris can accumulate on the spa cover. Removal of snow or other debris will help to avoid breakage of the foam cores.

2. Be sure to lock the cover straps to secure the cover from unwanted or accidental entry.

3. Do not place heavy objects on the vinyl.

4. Do not walk, sit or stand on the cover.

5. Do not drag or use the flaps/skirt or the cover lock straps to remove the cover.

6. Use only recommended cover lift systems.

7. Use only chemicals and cleaners recommended by Sundance Spas.

8. Remember to keep spa covered when not in use. Maintaining proper water levels assures efficient operation and efficient electrical usage.

9. Do not expose your spa to the sun for extended periods of time as

UV rays can damage the interior surface.

10. Use caution when removing cover. Before removing cover, assure all locks have been released to avoid lock breakage and/or cover strap damage.

11.6 Maintaining The Synthetic Cabinet

Your new spa’s synthetic cabinet requires little or no maintenance of any kind. To clean, simply wipe cabinet with a clean towel and mild soap solution.

CAUTION: Never spray cabinet with a garden hose for any reason since this action may induce an electrical short in the spa’s electrical equipment.

11.7 Winterizing

Your Sundance ® 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 32°F (0°C), choose the F3

“Standard” filtration/heating mode to prevent freezing (page 31).

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.

Page 37

680 SERIES

Expert winterization of your spa is highly recommended, contact your authorized Sundance dealer. In emergency situations, damage can be minimized by taking the following steps:

CAUTION: TURN OFF POWER TO HOT TUB!

1. Turn off power to the spa.

2. Follow the directions on page 35 for draining the spa.

3. Turn the massage/diverter selector(s) into the middle combo position

to allow the water in the plumbing lines to drain, see page 29.

4. Turn the waterfall valve to the open position to allow the water in the

plumbing lines to drain, see page 29.

5. Open all the air controls and leave them open until you resume use

of the spa, page 29.

6. 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, such as a wet/dry vacuum.

7. When the water level ceases to drop, use whatever means available to remove any remaining water from the footwell, such as a wet/dry vacuum.

8. Remove the equipment-side cabinet panel and locate the drain plugs

in the front of the pump(s) (Figure A, page 16). 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 pump drain plugs.

9. Loosen hose clamp at bottom of CLEAR RAY® system and pull hose off of CLEAR RAY fitting (twist the hose back and forth while pulling downward). Tip hose down and allow to drain, then reinstall hose and clamp. Remove the cover of the CLEAR RAY system to access the UV bulb and quartz tube. Remove and store the UV bulb in a safe location. Remove and dry off the quartz tube then reinstall it.

Depending on the length of time, consider replacing the UV bulb when you resume use of your hot tub.

10. Re-install cabinet side panels and cover spa so that no casual moisture can enter into it.

Consult your authorized Sundance dealer if you have any questions regarding winter use or winterizing.

11.8 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 authorized Sundance dealer for guidance before attempting to re-start your spa under these conditions.

Page 38

680 SERIES

12.0 Water Quality Maintenance

To decrease the risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments, maintain water quality within specified limits. This will enhance your enjoyment and prolong the life of the hot tub’s equipment. Doing so requires regular attention because the water chemistry involved is a balance of several factors. Procrastination in regard to water maintenance will result in poor and potentially unhealthful conditions for soaking and even damage to your hot tub investment. For specific guidance on maintaining water quality, consult your Authorized

Sundance Spas dealer who can recommend appropriate chemical products for sanitizing and maintaining your hot tub.

!

WARNING: FAILURE TO MAINTAIN WATER QUALITY

WILL:

• Increase risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments.

• Damage the equipment, components and spa shell, which are not covered under the hot tub’s warranty.

CAUTION: Never store hot tub chemicals inside the hot tub’s equipment bay. The equipment bay may reach elevated temperatures, this is where high voltage electronic devices are located. This area is not intended for storage of any kind.

12.1 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 pH. 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.

12.2 Sanitizing

To destroy bacteria and organic compounds in the spa water, a sanitizer must be used regularly. Chlorine and bromine are the two most popular sanitizers used to date. 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 Sundance dealer can advise you on the use of these additives. When adding spa shock (chlorine or non-chlorine) or pH balancing chemicals activate the jets pump(s) and leave the spa cover

Page 39

680 SERIES open for a minimum of 20 minutes. By doing this you will allow excessive chemical vapors to exit the spa, protecting pillows and plastic knobs from chemical attack.

Note: SunPurity brominator cannot be used with the 680 Series.

!

WARNING: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DROWNING

OR ENTRAPMENT!

Never leave your hot tub unattended for any reason while the cover is open and accessible, especially to small children and animals!

CAUTION: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY OR SPA DAMAGE!

Never add chlorine tablets (trichlor) or acid to your hot tub for any reason! These chemicals may damage components within your hot tub, burn or irritate your skin, create a rash and void the manufacturer warranty for your spa.

12.3 CLEARRAY® Water Purification System

14.2 Pump Does Not Operate but Light Does

Press the JETS 1 Button:

1. If no water movement is detected, make sure power is going to the spa and check the water level. If it does not solve the problem, contact your authorized Sundance dealer.

2. The main pump operates but no water flows to jets. Pump may not be properly primed. This can happen after the spa is drained and refilled.

A. Press the JETS 1 button several times, never leaving the motor on for more than 5 to 10 seconds at a time. Turn power off and let the air out removing the filter cartridge. Refer to Section 11.1

(page 34). Make certain you reinstall the filter cartridge before

turning on spa power and restarting the jets pump.

14.3 Poor Jet Action

1. Press the JETS 1 button to make certain the pump #1 is on.

2. Open all air control to the “on” position.

3. Check for dirty filter. Clean, if necessary.

4. Make sure jets are all the way open.

14.4 Water is Too Hot

Reduce thermostat setting.

14.5 No Heat

1. Check thermostat setting.

2. Keep the spa cover in place while heating.

3. Check the settings to see if your spa is in economy filtration/heating

mode (page 31).

Should checking the above steps fail to correct the problem, please call your dealer so that they may arrange service.
