SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS (CONT.)
(For units with GFCI)
WARNING – This product is provided with a ground-fault circuit interrupter
located on the front panel of selected swim spas and on the power cord of
120 volt convertible spas. The GFCI must be tested before each use. With the
product operating, open the service door. When the product stops operating,
this merely indicates that the door is equipped with an electrical interlock.
Next, push the test button on the GFCI and close the service door. The product should not operate. Now open the service door, push the reset button
on the GFCI and close the service door. The product should now operate
normally. When the product fails to operate in this manner, there is a ground
current flowing indicating the possibility of an electric shock. Disconnect the
power until the fault has been identified and corrected.
DANGER – Risk of Accidental Drowning. Extreme caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorized access by children. To avoid accidents, ensure that children cannot use this spa unless they are supervised at all times.
DANGER – Risk of Injury. The suction fittings in this spa are sized to match the specific water flow created by the pump. Should the need arise to replace the suction
fittings or the pump, be sure that the flow rates are compatible.
Never operate spa if the suction fittings are broken or missing. Never replace a suction fitting with one rated less than the flow rate marked on the original suction
fitting.
DANGER – Risk of Electric Shock. Install at least 5 feet (1.5m) from all metal surfaces. As an alternative, a spa may be installed within 5 feet of metal surfaces if
each metal surface is permanently connected by a minimum 8AWG (8.4mm2) solid
copper conductor to the wire connector on the terminal box that is provided for
this purpose.
DANGER – Risk of Electric Shock. Do not permit any electric appliance, such as a
light, telephone, radio, or television, within 5 feet (1.5 m) of a spa.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of injury:
a) The water in a spa should never exceed 40˚C (104˚F). Water temperatures
between 38˚C (100˚F) 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.
DO NOT DIVE.

INSTRUCTIONS (CONT.)
b) Since excessive water temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal
damage during the early months of pregnancy, pregnant or possibly pregnant women should limit spa water temperatures to 38˚C (100˚F).
c) Before entering a spa, the user should measure the water temperature
since the tolerance of water temperature- regulating devices varies.
d) The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication before or during spa use may lead
to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.
e) Obese persons and persons with a history of heart disease, low or high
blood pressure, circulatory system problems, or diabetes should consult a
physician before using a spa.
f) Persons using medication should consult a physician before using a spa
since some medication may induce drowsiness while other medication may
affect heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
HAVE YOUR ELECTRICIAN READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION
BEFORE INSTALLATION BEGINS
Electrical connections made improperly, or the use of wire gauge sizes for incurring
power which are too small, may continually blow fuses in the electrical equipment
box, may damage the internal electrical controls and components, may be unsafe
and in any case will void your warranty.
It is the responsibility of the spa owner to ensure that electrical connections are
made by a qualified electrician in accordance with the National Electrical Code and
any local and state electrical codes in force at the time of installation.
These connections must be made in accordance with the wiring diagrams found
inside the control box. This equipment has been designed to operate on 60Hz.
alternating current only, 240 volts are required. Make sure that power is not
applied while performing any electrical installation. A copper bonding lug has been
provided on the electrical equipment pack to allow connection to local ground
points. The ground wire must be at least 8 AWG copper wire and must be connected securely to a grounded metal structure such as a cold water pipe. All Master
Spas equipment packs are wired for 240 VAC only. The only electrical supply for
your spa must include a 50 AMP switch or circuit breaker to open all non-grounded supply conductors to comply with section 422-20 of the National Electrical
Code. The disconnect must
be readily accessible to the spa occupants, but installed at least five feet from the
spa. A Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) must be used to comply with section 680-42 of the National Electrical Code. A ground fault is a current leak from
any one of the supply conductors to ground. A GFCI is designed to automatically
shut off power to a piece of equipment when a ground fault is detected.
Power hook-up to the spa must be 240 volt 3 wire plus ground (6 AWG copper)
8 AWG copper ground.
Route the cable into the equipment area for final hook-up to terminals inside
the control panel. The spa must be hooked up to a “dedicated” 240 volt, 50 amp
breaker and GFCI. The term “dedicated” means the electrical circuit for the spa
is not being used for any other electrical items (patio lights, appliances, garage
circuits, etc.). If the spa is connected to a non-dedicated circuit, overloading will
result in “nuisance tripping” which requires resetting of the breaker switch at the
Rev. 11/11
house electrical panel.
Permanently Connected Equipment Assembly with Pump(s), Heaters, Luminaine, Ozone, Spa Side
Control(s), Pump shut off device, and Audio/Video Components.
Note: Some of the above components may be optional or not available with every spa model.

SITE PREPARATION / GENERAL GUIDELINES
Portable spa installation is simple when properly planned. It is important that you read the following information carefully and consult with your Master Spas dealer.
1) Access - The actual dimensions of your new spa will determine the amount of space that is
needed in moving the spa from curbside to its final installation area. Be sure to measure side
yard dimensions, gates or doors and vertical obstructions such as roof overhangs and overhead
cables. Any other space limiting obstacles such as trees or shrubs must be evaluated.
2) If the spa is being installed indoors, dimension limitations such as stairs, ceilings and walls must
be taken into consideration. Please have your Master Spas dealer or delivery service review site
or installation plans prior to delivery.
3) Surface/Pad Requirements - When your new spa is filled with water and bathers, it may weigh
as much as several tons. It is imperative that the base beneath the spa can support the entire
weight. The spa must be on a uniformly firm, continuous, and level surface. The recommended
foundation is a concrete pad with a minimum thickness of four (4) inches with steel reinforcement bars crossed throughout the pad.
IMPORTANT
When installing your spa indoors, on a wood deck, or balcony, the same load requirements must
be met. Total load may be as much as 90 pounds per square foot. You should speak with a qualified contractor or your local building department to confirm that your surface is adequate for supporting a spa. Be sure to locate your spa so that equipment remains above grade and is not subject
to flooding.
The equipment side(s) of the spa must be accessible in the event that future service is needed.
Periodical maintenance checks require entry into the equipment bay. When possible, it is wise planning for the future to leave 2 feet of access to all sides of the spa in the event your spas plumbing
requires maintenance. Your spa warranty does not cover the cost of providing access for service.
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Again, proper planning will increase your total enjoyment factor with your new spa. Listed below
are some additional items to consider when planning your installation.

Put spa in final position that allows for access to equipment and spa components.
3.
Be sure all pump and heater unions are secure. Each pump has 2 unions and the heater has
2 unions. A newly delivered spa may have loose unions caused in transporting the spa. Check
that all slice valves are open, in the up position. The slice valves may become closed during
transportation of the spa.
Remove front side panel (This is the side where the main topside control panel is located) so
electrical can be hooked up to the spa system pack. Panels are removed by unscrewing the
screws in the corner sections and then lifting up the panels out of the retaining tracks.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
7.
It may be necessary to bleed air from the pump(s) on your spa if, after start up, your spa
pumps do not operate.
Due to the nature of water flow and hydro-therapy pumps, please be advised that air locking
of pumps may occur. Master Spas has taken measures to reduce the possibility of this, but it
still may occur, especially after refilling a spa. This is not a service covered under warranty.
To relieve and airlock, loosen the union on the discharge of the pump (see arrow on picture
of pump below). Water should leak out. Tighten the union and test the pump for proper jet
flow. If needed repeat process.

WATER CHEMISTRY TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Before jumping into the Spa Water Maintenance, here are some terms to help you.
1.
Parts per million, or ppm: This is a form of measurement used in most pool or spa chemical
readings. Best described as any one million like items of equal size and make up, next to one
unlike item , but of equal size. This would be one part per million.
2.
Average size spa: What is it? The national spa and pool institute (NSPI) states; 350 to 400 U.S.
gallons is average. As a general rule, chemical dosages are the same for any spa between 100
and 500 U.S. gallons. Spas over 500 U.S. gallons the dosage would be double. Under 100
U.S. gallons would be on a case by case basis.
3.
Total Alkalinity: This is a measurement of the ability of the water to resist changes in pH. Put
another way, it is the water’s ability to maintain proper pH. Total alkalinity is measured in
parts per million from 0 to 400 plus, with 80 to 150 ppm being the best range for spas. With
low alkalinity, the pH will flip, or change back and forth, and be hard to control. With high
alkalinity it becomes extremely difficult to change the pH.
4.
pH or potential hydrogen: This is a measurement of the active acidity in the water, or it is
the measurement of the concentration of active hydrogen ions in the water. The greater the
concentration of active hydrogen ions, the lower the pH. pH is not measured in parts per
million, but on a scale from 0 to 14, with 7 being the neutral. In spas when ever possible,
a measurement between 7.2 and 7.8 is best. Whenever possible, it should be between 7.4
and 7.6. With low pH, the results can be corroded metals, etched and stained plaster stained
fiberglass or acrylic, eye / skin irritation, rapid chlorine or bromine loss, and total alkalinity
destruction. With high pH, the results can be cloudy water, eye / skin irritation, scale formation and poor chlorine or bromine efficiency.
5.
Shocking: This is when you add either extra chlorine (superchlorinate) by raising the chlorine
level above 8 ppm, or add a non-chlorine shock (potassium monoperoxysulfate or potassium
monopersulfate) to burn off the chloramines or bromamines. A non-chlorine shock acts by
releasing oxygen in the water, which serves the same function as chlorine. The advantage to
using non-chlorine shock, is you can enter the water within 15 minutes after shocking. Using
chlorine, you must wait until the total chlorine reading is below 5 ppm. One thing to remember, a non-chlorine shock will not kill bacteria or disinfect.
6.
Sequestering: This can be defined as the ability to form a chemical complex which remains in
solution, despite the presence of a precipitating agent (i.e. calcium and metals). Common
names for sequestering chemicals are; minquest, stain and scale control, metal-x, spa defender, spa metal gone, (etc.).
7.
Filtration: Filters are necessary to remove particles of dust, dirt, algae, etc. that are continuously entering the water. If the spa is not operated long enough each day for the filter to do
a proper job, this puts a burden on the chemicals, causing extra expense. Filtration time will
depend on the spa size, pump and filter size, and of course, bather load. A spare cartridge
should be kept on hand to make it easy to frequently clean the cartridge without the need
for a long shut down. This will also allow the cartridge to dry out between usages, which will
increase the cartridge life span as much as twice. Replace the cartridge when the pleats begin
to deteriorate. Cartridge cleaning should be done a minimum of once a month. More often
with a heavy bather load.
DO NOT DIVE.
21
WATER CHEMISTRY TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Before jumping into the Spa Water Maintenance, here are some terms to help you.
8.
Sanitizers: This is what kills the germs and bacteria that enter the water from the environment
and the human body.
A. Chlorine
1. Only one type is approved for spa use. Sodium dichlor which is granular, fast dissolving and pH neutral chlorine.
2. Chlorine is an immediate sanitizer.
B. Bromine (Note: Bromine use is not recommended with Eco Pur filters.)
1. Two types of tablets.
a. Hydrotech
b. Lonza
2. Bromine is a slow dissolve chemical and may take a few days to develop a reserve
or reading in the water.
9.
Total dissolved solids (TDS): Materials that have been dissolved by the water. i.e. Like what
happens when you put sugar in coffee or tea.
10. Useful life of water (in days): Water should be drained at least once every 180 days. Useful life
may vary by usage and bather load.
11. Defoamer: Foaming may be caused by body oils, cosmetics, lotions, surface cleaners, high
pH or algeacides as well as other organic materials. Low levels of calcium or sanitizer can
also cause foaming. Also, double rinse your bathing suits as they will hold residual soap after
being washed.
12. Calcium hardness: Water that is too hard (over 250 ppm) can promote scale formation in
components and on spa surface. Water that is too low (below 180 ppm) may also shorten
the life of metal components on the spa.
NOTE: Always leave spa cover open for 15 minutes after adding chemicals to prevent the off
gas from damaging your spa cover, spa pillows and other critical parts.

the advantages of eco pur™ filtration
Eco Pur™ water filter system is designed to reduce the use of chemicals in your spa. You will still
be required, periodically, based on usage to add a small amount of chlorine to oxidize organic
compounds in the water. The Eco Pur™ filter system will not eliminate the need to maintain proper
water chemistry but can make the maintenance a more natural experience.
FEATURES
•฀฀The฀Eco฀Pur™฀filter฀system฀will฀not฀oxidize฀organic฀compounds฀and฀will฀require฀periodic฀doses฀of฀
chlorine to assist in the sanitization and oxidation processes required to maintain clear spa water.
•฀฀Eco฀Pur™฀filter฀system฀will฀not฀alter฀the฀ph฀of฀spa฀water.฀The฀Eco฀Pur™฀filter฀system฀will฀actually฀
aid in stabilizing the ph. Eco Pur™ does not alter the (TDS) total dissolved solids.
•฀฀The฀main฀function฀of฀the฀Eco฀Pur™฀filter฀system฀is฀to฀provide฀clean฀and฀clear฀spa฀water.฀
Proper chemical balance and filtration are also key components in maintaining healthy spa
water. Always ensure that the ph and total alkalinity of the spa water is checked and balanced
at all times. To ensure proper filtration, clean the regular filter cartridge with a “filter cleaner”
every 30 days and rinse the Eco Pur™ cartridge with a hose to remove any buildup of
containments. (Do not soak the Eco Pur™ cartridge in filter cleaner.) If water appears to
be visually cloudy, dull, or has an odor, shock the spa water with 1 ounce of chlorine*
to remove excessive containments. When cleaning filters, be sure to never have the
pumps (including the circulation pump) running without the filters in place. Failure
to do so may result in debris being drawn into the pumps causing unwarranted damage.
•฀฀Helps฀remove฀calcium฀carbonate฀and฀hydrogen฀sulphide฀from฀spa฀water฀to฀protect฀heaters฀
and equipment from precipitation.
•฀Helps฀stabilize฀the฀pH฀and฀alkalinity฀of฀the฀spa฀water.
•฀Helps฀reduce฀chemical฀usage฀and฀still฀provide฀safe฀odor-free฀water.
•฀฀Helps฀deplete฀excess฀chlorine฀after฀chemical฀shock฀to฀prevent฀damage฀to฀skin,฀
hair, and swim wear.
•฀Helps฀to฀produce฀ultra฀clean฀and฀clear฀water.
Note: Eco Pur™ filters are not recommended for use with Bromine. Consult your dealer for additional
information.
Master Spas, Inc. products are not designed to be used with Biquanides. These chemicals are found
in SoftSwim® and Baqua Spa® products. Due to adverse effects from these types of sanitizers, the
use of these products may void the spa warranty.

WATER QUALITY MAINTENANCE START-UP
For Eco Pur™ Water Filter System
Step 1: ฀
฀ our฀spa฀should฀be฀filled฀using฀a฀Pre-filter,฀which฀can฀be฀obtained฀from฀your฀local฀
Y
dealer.฀This฀Pre-filter฀will฀help฀remove฀many฀of฀the฀minerals฀existing฀in฀the฀water,฀
which will make adjusting the water balance easier after a new fill. Never use more
then 50% softened water when filling the spa.
Step 2:
During the initial filling of the spa, add a sequestering agent to combat suspended
minerals in the water. The agents are sold under many different names such as Mineral
Clear, Stain and Scale, Metal Protect, and other brands. Allow water to circulate and
filter for at least 12 hours before adding any other chemicals.
Step 3:฀
฀Test฀water฀for฀pH,฀total฀Alkalinity,฀and฀Calcium฀hardness.฀The฀pH฀should฀be฀7.2฀-฀7.8฀
and฀the฀total฀Alkalinity฀80-150฀PPM.฀Calcium฀hardness฀levels฀should฀be฀maintained฀
between 150 and 250 PPM (part per million).
Step 4: ฀
฀Adjust฀pH฀and฀total฀Alkalinity฀(TA)฀utilizing฀the฀directions฀on฀the฀chemical฀bottles.฀
Wait 15 minutes, test and adjust if necessary.
Step 5:
It may be necessary to retest and add additional chemicals to get to the proper levels
in Step 3.
Step 6:
Add 2 ounces of concentrated chlorinating granules*฀(sodium฀Dichlor-s-triazinetreone)฀
on initial start up to begin sanitizing the spa water. Always refer to the chemical manufactures dosage recommendations listed on the container. It is important not to add
the฀chlorinating฀granules฀until฀the฀pH,฀alkalinity฀and฀calcium฀hardness฀have฀been฀
adjusted to their proper levels.

WATER QUALITY MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE ECO PUR™ (continued)
AS NEEDED
If฀water฀looks฀hazy,฀check฀PH฀and฀Total฀Alkilinity,฀and฀treat฀with฀1฀ounce฀of฀chlorine*. Always refer
to the chemical manufactures dosage recommendations listed on the container.
These are general recommendations for water quality maintenance that may vary by usage and
or bather load. Depending on bather load and frequency of use, drain and refill times may vary as
well as the frequency of cleaning your filters.
A defoamer may be used when excessive foaming occurs. Over use of a defoamer will result
in cloudy, milky water.
USE ONLY SPA CHEMICALS
Do not use chemicals designed for use in swimming pools.
With a spa you are working with a small volume of hot water compared to a large volume of
relatively cool water in a swimming pool. Because of this chemicals will have a shorted life span
and bacteria can grow more quickly than in a swimming pool. A spa is less forgiving then a pool
and฀requires฀that฀whatever฀is฀put฀into฀it฀have฀a฀pH฀as฀close฀to฀neutral฀as฀possible.฀That฀is฀why฀only฀
chemicals made for spas should be used. Always refer to the chemical manufactures dosage recommendations listed on the container.

WHY ARE CHEMICALS IMPORTANT IN A SPA
1.
Evaporation:
As water evaporates, only pure water evaporates, leaving the salts, minerals, metals, and any
unused chemicals behind. Adding water adds more salts, minerals, and metals. In time, the
water can become saturated with these dissolved solids and can cause stains or scale to form
on the walls of the spa or a scale build up inside the equipment. Colored or cloudy water,
and possible corrosion of plumbing and fittings may also occur.
2.
Heat:
Heat causes much quicker evaporation and also will cause minerals and metals to precipitate
out of solution.
3.
Air:
Dust and airborne dirt particles are introduced into the spa.
4.
Environment:
The environment surrounding the spa can also impact the water quality. Items such as pollen, grass, sand, dirt, lawn fertilizer, airborne dust, insects, leaves, and pets can all affect the
water quality of the spa.
Remember:
The maintenance routines set forth in this manual may need to be adjusted depending on how
much the spa is being used.
DO NOT DIVE.
28
MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS
Your spa requires periodic draining and cleaning to ensure a safe, healthy environment. It is recommended that you clean your spa at least every 180 days. Heavy bather load will require cleaning it
more often.
DRAIN YOUR SPA
•฀See฀page฀13.
CLEAN YOUR SPA SURFACE
•฀฀With฀a฀soft฀cloth,฀wipe฀down฀the฀spa฀surface฀with฀a฀non-abrasive฀spa฀surface฀cleaner฀that฀may฀
be purchased through your local spa dealer. Do not use paper towels. Be sure to rinse residue
from spa surface.
•฀฀If฀your฀spa฀has฀developed฀an฀oily฀or฀chalky฀residue฀at฀the฀waterline฀it฀may฀require฀special฀treatment. Consult your dealer.
REFILL YOUR SPA
•฀Be฀sure฀to฀close฀the฀drain฀valve.
•฀฀Fill฀the฀spa฀with฀water฀and฀be฀sure฀that฀water฀level฀is฀above฀the฀skimmer฀opening฀at฀the฀minimum safe water level sticker.
•฀Refer฀to฀the฀start-up฀section฀for฀specific฀instructions.฀
CLEAN YOUR FILTER ELEMENTS (also reference page 57)
The filter elements are one of the most important components of your spa. Not only are they
essential for clean water, but they also extend the life of the spa equipment. Your filter elements
should be cleaned on a regular basis, once a month on average with normal usage. With heavy
use the filters may need to be cleaned more often.
•฀฀Turn฀off฀the฀spa฀before฀servicing฀filters.฀Never฀leave฀to฀the฀spa฀running฀when฀removing฀the฀filters. Debris can be pulled into the plumbing system and cause unwarranted damage.
•฀Remove฀filter฀element(s).
•฀฀With฀a฀garden฀hose,฀spray฀each฀element฀under฀pressure.฀Periodically,฀the฀elements฀need฀to฀
be soaked in a filter cleaner compound. Check with your dealer for details on cleaning and/or
filter replacement recommendations.
•฀Replace฀filter฀elements.
•฀Be฀sure฀water฀level฀is฀adequate.
•฀Turn฀spa฀on.
•฀Only฀clean฀the฀ECO฀PUR฀filter฀element฀with฀water,฀do฀not฀use฀chemical฀cleaners.฀
CARE OF YOUR SPA PILLOWS
•฀฀Your฀spa฀pillows฀need฀to฀be฀rinsed฀periodically฀to฀remove฀any฀chemical฀residue.฀This฀should฀help฀
to eliminate pillows becoming stiff and discolored.
•฀If฀spa฀is฀not฀to฀be฀used฀for฀a฀period฀of฀time,฀pillows฀should฀be฀removed.฀Pillow฀life฀will฀be฀extended.
NOTE: Do not cover the spa for 15 minutes after adding chemicals as the off gas can cause unwarranted damage.
DO NOT DIVE.
29
MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS
CARE OF LAMINAR FLOW JETS:
•฀In฀order฀to฀keep฀your฀Laminar฀Flow฀Jets฀operating฀properly,฀follow฀these฀instructions฀in฀sequence:
- Turn off Laminar Flow Jets
- Remove outer ring by turning face counter clockwise
- Remove internal Jet insert with a pair of needle nose pliers
- Clean plastic filter at the back of the Jet insert so all holes are free of debris
- Reinstall Jet insert and outer ring
NOTE: To prevent premature failure of your spa cover, always turn Laminar Flow Jets down so that
they do not hit the cover when the cover is closed. You do not want to completely turn jets off.
Doing so may cause a build up of stagnant water in the water line if not used often.
DO NOT DIVE.
30
WINTERIZING YOUR SPA
Many people find they enjoy using their spa more in the winter than any other time. Your spa is
designed to be used year round in any type of climate.
*However, if you decide you don’t want to use your spa in the winter, you must drain it and follow the winterizing steps listed below:
1.
Drain your spa completely using the drain valve (see “To Drain Your Spa”) or use an inexpensive submersible pump that you can buy from your dealer or your local hardware store.
2.
Use a shop vac to get all standing water out of your unit.
3.
Remove access panels from equipment area.
4.
Loosen all pump unions
5.
Remove winterizing plug from face of the pump(s) where applicable.
6.
Using your shop vac in a blowing mode, insert the hose into the nozzle of each jet and blow
the trapped water from the lines into the interior of the spa.
7.
After this is completed, use the shop vac to remove any standing water in the spa and in the
equipment area.
8.
Clean the spa with a soft cloth and a non-abrasive spa surface cleaner.
9.
Replace access panels.
10. Cover spa to prevent water from entering the spa.
*Disclaimer: Master Spas does not recommend winterizing your spa. If you choose to do so,
any damage that may result is not covered under the spa warranty.

DUAL TEMPERATURE RANGES (HIGH VS. LOW)
This system incorporates two temperature range settings with independent set temperatures. The
specific range can be selected on the Settings screen and is visible on the Main Screen in the upper
right corner of the display.
These ranges can be used for various reasons, with a common use being a “ready to use” setting
vs. a “vacation” setting. Each range maintains its own set temperature as programmed by the user.
This way, when a range is chosen, the spa will heat to the set temperature associated with that
range.
High Range can be set between 80°F and 104°F.
Low Range can be set between 50°F and 99°F.
Freeze Protection is active in either range.

HEAT MODE – READY VS. REST
In order for the spa to heat, a pump needs to circulate water through the heater. The pump that
performs this function is known as the “24 hour Circ.”
REST Mode will only allow heating during programmed filter cycles.
Circulation Mode (See
(See Page
Page39,
8, under Pumps )
The heater pump generally runs continuously. Since the heater pump is always running, the spa
will maintain set temperature and heat as needed in Ready Mode, without polling.
In Rest Mode, the spa will only heat to set temperature during programmed filter times, even
though the water is being filtered constantly when in Circulation Mode.

fill it up!
PREPARATION AND FILLING
Fill the spa to its correct operating level. Be sure to open all valves and jets in the plumbing system
before filling to allow as much air as possible to escape from the plumbing and the control system
during the filling process.
After turning the power on at the main power panel, the top-side panel will display a splash, or
startup screen.
PRIMING MODE
After the initial start-up sequence, the control will enter
Priming Mode and display a Priming Mode screen. Only
pump icons appear on the priming mode screen. The
system will automatically return to normal heating and
filtering at the end of the priming mode, which lasts 4-5
minutes. During the priming mode, the heater is disabled
to allow the priming process to be completed without the
possibility of energizing the heater under low-flow or noPriming Mode
flow conditions. Nothing comes on automatically, but the
pump(s) can be energized by selecting the “Jet” buttons.
The 24 hour Circ Pump can be activated by pressing the dedicated “Light” button during
Priming Mode.
Exit
Jets 1
Jets 2
Jets 3
Circ
Manually exit Priming Mode by pressing the “Exit” Button.
PRIMING THE PUMPS
As soon as the Priming Mode screeen appears on the panel, select the “Jets 1” button once to
start Pump 1 in low-speed and then again to switch to high-speed. Also, select the other pumps,
to turn them on. The pumps should be running in high-speed to facilitate priming. If the pumps
have not primed after 2 minutes, and water is not flowing from the jets in the spa, do not allow
the pumps to continue to run. Turn off the pumps and repeat the process. Note: Turning the
power off and back on again will initiate a new pump priming session. Sometimes momentarily
turning the pump off and on will help it to prime. Do not do this more than 5 times. If the pump(s)
will not prime, shut off the power to the spa and call for service.
Important: A pump should not be allowed to run without priming for more than 2 minutes. Under
NO circumstances should a pump be allowed to run without priming beyond the end of the 4-5
minute priming mode. Doing so may cause damage to the pump and cause the system to energize
the heater and go into an overheat condition.
EXITING PRIMING MODE
You can manually exit Priming Mode by navigating to the “Back” button on the Priming Mode
Screen. Note that if you do not manually exit the priming mode as described above, the priming mode will be automatically terminated after 4-5 minutes. Be sure that the pump(s) have been
primed by this time.
Once the system has exited Priming Mode, the top-side panel will display the Main Screen, but the
display will not show the temperature yet, as shown below. This is because the system requires
approximately 1 minute of water flowing through the heater to determine the water temperature
and display it.

spa behavior
PUMPS
On the Spa Screen, select a “Jets” button once to turn the pump on or off, and to shift between
low- and high-speeds if equipped. If left running, the pump will turn off after a time-out period.
The pump 1 low-speed will time out after 30 minutes. The high-speed will time-out after 15 minutes.
CIRCULATION PUMP MODES
1. The 24 hour circ pump operates continuously with the exception of turning off for 30 minutes
at a time when the water temperature reaches 3°F (1.5°C) above the set temperature (most
likely to happen in very hot climates).
FILTRATION AND OZONE
The system is factory-programmed with one filter cycle that will run in the evening (assuming the
time-of-day is properly set) when energy rates are often lower. The filter time and duration are programmable. (See
page 41
10) A second filter cycle can be enabled as needed.
See page
At the start of each filter cycle, the pumps will run briefly to purge the plumbing to maintain good
water quality.
FREEZE PROTECTION
If the temperature sensors within the heater detect a low enough temperature, then the pumps
automatically activate to provide freeze protection. The pumps will run either continuously or periodically depending on conditions.
CLEAN-UP CYCLE (OPTIONAL)
When a 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 30
minutes or more, depending on the system. On some systems, you can change this setting. (See
the Preferences section on page

SPA TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
NOTHING ON THE SPA OPERATES1. Check the control panel display for any messages. If there is a message, refer to the diagnostic
section on that model spa. There you will find the meaning of the message and what action is
to be taken.
2. If there is no message on your control panel, check and reset the GFCI and house breaker.
*The GFCI should be located in a weather proof box close to the spa,
but no closer than 5 ft.
If the spa does not respond, contact your local service company.
PUMP(S) DO NOT OPERATE 1. Press the “Jets” button on your control panel.
If you hear the pumps trying to operate:
A. Check that all the slice valves are open. See photo on page 14.
B. Pump may need to be primed. See page 20.
C. Check that the air controls are open. See photo on page 12.
If you do not hear anything from the pump, contact your local service company.
POOR JET PERFORMANCE
1. Make sure pump is operating
2. Check that the water level is adequate (up to minimum safe water level side)
3. Make sure the jets are open and the air controls are open. See page 12.
4. Check for dirty filters. Clean if necessary.
DO NOT DIVE.
53
SPA TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
SPA NOT HEATING
* If the spas heater has failed, the majority of the time it will trip the GFCI breaker. If the spa is not
heating and has not tripped the breaker, please follow these steps:
1. Check the control panel for diagnostic messages. Refer to your spa models diagnostic message
area in previous sections. Follow steps to alleviate message.
2. Check water set temperature at control panel.
3. Check for dirty filters. Clean if necessary.
4. Check “heat mode” the spa is set in. Spa should be in standard mode.
5. Check the control panel for heater light indicator, see controls section of manual. If the indicator
is on, the spa should be heating. Wait a reasonable amount of time (approximately 1 hour) to
see if the water temperature is changing.
6. Check to make sure that the pump is primed and all slice valves are open.
7. Reset power to the spa at GFCI breaker.
8. If spa is still not heating, contact your dealer for service.
GFCI IS TRIPPING
A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is required by the National Electrical Code for your
protection. The tripping of the GFCI may be caused by a component on the spa or by an electrical
problem. Electrical problems include but are not limited to, a faulty GFCI breaker, spa component,
power fluctuations, or improper wiring. It may be necessary to contact an electrician if your dealer
recommends doing so.
DO NOT DIVE.
54
REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Note: These are areas that will require the spa owner to perform routine maintenance. These are not
areas covered under the warranty of the spa.
CLEANING JETS
The majority of jets in your spa can individually be turned on/off. If any of these jets become hard
to turn, it will be necessary to remove the jet to clean it as grit/sand and mineral deposit may be
present.
The jets in your spa can be removed for cleaning by unscrewing them (counter clockwise) and then
pulling out the jet.
To Clean Jets
Place the jet(s) in a container, fully immerse in white vinegar. Let the jet(s) soak overnight and then
rinse with water. Reinstall the jet(s). It may be necessary to clean grit and deposits from the white
jet body (mounted in the spa shell) by using a small bristled brush.
CLEANING DIVERTER VALVES
Some Legend Series Spas have diverter valves. Due to mineral deposits and grit/sand that may get
into the internal parts of the diverter valve, it may become hard to turn or freeze up completely.
In this case, it is necessary to remove the handle and cap of the diverter valve. Before proceeding,
make sure the power to the spa is turned off.
Turn the cap piece counter clockwise. It may be necessary to put a clean cloth over the cap and
turn it with a wrench.
Once loose, the cap and handle can be pulled up out of the white plumbing fitting.
Wipe down the internal piece that attaches to the cap and handle.
Soak the cap and handle in white vinegar.
The white plumbing fitting should also be wiped down. If the surface of the white plumbing has
become too abrasive, you can take wet, fine sandpaper and smooth it out. It is also helpful to use
a lubricant (use silicone based, not petroleum based) to allow for an easier turn of the diverter
handle.
Rinse the diverter internals and reassemble.
In the future, it is helpful to turn the diverter valve only when the pump is not on. Cleaning your
diverter valve should occur every time you drain your spa.
DO NOT DIVE.
55
REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
DRAINING YOUR SPA
The drain is located behind the front panel on the far right side. You can access the drain by
unscrewing the black thumb screws and removing the corner panel. Grasp the drain cap, and pull
the assembly out all the way. Unscrew the cap, then push the assembly back in half way to start
the flow of water. Attach a garden hose, if desired. Draining times may vary by model using the
external hose bib. A sump pump may also be used to drain the spa quickly.
NOTE: When pushing or pulling the assembly in or out, water will drip from the drain during
the transition. This is normal.
Spa Drain
NOTE: To prevent premature failure of your spa cover, always turn Laminar Flow Jets down so that
they do not hit the cover when the cover is closed. You do not want to completely turn jets off.
Doing so may cause a build up of stagnant water in the water line if not used often.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
CARE OF YOUR SPA COVER
Always cover your spa when not in use. This will greatly reduce energy consumption and will cause
spa water to heat more rapidly. Water loss and chemical usage will also be reduced.
•฀Be฀sure฀to฀lock฀down฀all฀straps฀on฀cover฀after฀each฀use฀to฀prevent฀wind฀damage.
•฀฀Do฀not฀allow฀spa฀to฀sit฀uncovered฀in฀direct฀sunlight.฀This฀may฀cause฀damage฀to฀exposed฀surfaces฀
of spa and possible discoloration of spa fittings.
•฀฀Periodically฀hose฀off฀both฀sides฀of฀spa฀cover฀for฀maximum฀life฀of฀cover.฀Once฀a฀month฀use฀a฀vinyl฀
cleaner and conditioner on the vinyl portion of your cover. Rinse residue off.
•฀Keep฀cover฀open฀for฀15฀minutes฀after฀adding฀chemicals฀to฀prevent฀off฀gas฀damage.
NOTE: IF YOUR SPA IS GOING TO BE LEFT EMPTY FOR PROLONGED PERIODS, DO NOT REPLACE
COVER DIRECTLY ON SURFACE OF SPA. PLACE 2”-3” BLOCKS BETWEEN COVER AND SPA. THIS
ALLOWS FOR ADEQUATE VENTILATION OF COVER AND SPA.
NOTE: The cover warranty is provided through the cover manufacturer and not through Master Spas.
You will need to mail the cover warranty back to the cover manufacturer.
CARE OF YOUR SPA CABINET
Your DuraMaster™ Polymer Skirt, Master Tech Skirt or Dreamstone Skirt is a maintenance free skirt.
No conditioning is necessary. Simply hose off the waterproof / U.V. resistant material periodically.
FILTER CLEANING
NOTE: Never operate the spa without filters in place. If done, damage will result to pumps and other
components. We recommend having an extra set of filters to install when cleaning the filters.
1. Turn power off to the spa.
2. Remove any large or floating debris from the filter area.
3. Remove the filters. Remember that the ECO PUR mineral filters should only be rinsed with clear
water and never soaked in a cartridge cleaner. The outer filters should be periodically rinsed and
soaked in a cartridge cleaner. Follow the instructions on the cartridge cleaner. The ECO PUR filters should be replaced every 6 months

When you have finished operating the spa via the WiFi connection remember to switch back to your
local WiFi network to interface with it.
Note* The WiFi system on your spa will only allow one device to connect with it at a time. If you
attempt to connect two devices to the spa at the same time there can be conflicts that will hinder
operation.
If the signal strength of the WiFi connection is weak the application icons may not react normally. This
may cause confusion as to whether the command has been executed correctly.
ADVANCED WIFI CONNECTION
In most situations the connection will be readily available. If you experience long delays connecting to
the spa using the procedure outlined in steps 1 -3 above, you may need to assign a static IP address for
the point to point network.
