Owners Manual
How your spa functions
BASIC: Water is drawn through the drains in the foot well and the skim filter on the side of the spa. Water is pumped through a filter, over the
heater, into the Ozone Reaction Chamber and returns to the jets. Water entering the spa has been filtered, heated and mixed with air ready for
use. Note: A pressure switch on the heater ensures water flow over the heater before allowing the heater to energise.
JETS: All regular jets can be flow adjusted by rotating the face of the jet. As the jet is turned clockwise the air at the jet is gradually reduced,
then the water. As the jet is rotated counter-clockwise, water flow is increased then the water and air mix is increased.
FILTER: A weir is located on the skimmer. It is used to skim oils and floating pieces of debris from the surface of the spa. (If applicable, the
weir should be facing in to the skimmer opening.)
AIR CONTROLS: Air Controls inject air into the jets via a venturi system. Rotating the left or right control from Min. to Max. activates the air
control.
NOTE: The system functions when your jets are at full power only.
NOTE: On spas with “Turbo” Option, one or more air controls may not do anything as they have been made redundant.

Owners Manual
Locating your hot tub/spa
you should position it. For example, will you use your spa for recreational or therapeutic purposes? If your spa is mainly used for family recreation, be sure to leave plenty of room around it for activity. If you will use it for relaxation and therapy, you’ll probably want to create a specific mood around it.
• If you live in a region where it is cold or rains frequently, place the spa near a house entry. If you chose to locate your spa indoors, we recommended that the area be properly ventilated.
• In a cold-weather climate, bare trees won’t provide much privacy. Think of your spa’s surroundings during all seasons to determine your best privacy options. Consider the view of your neighbours when you plan the location of your spa.
• Prevent dirt and contaminants from being tracked into your spa by placing a foot mat at the spa’s entrance where the bather’s can clean their feet before entering your spa. You may also
consider keeping a small water-filled basin nearby for bathers to rinse their feet before enter your spa.
• Adequate space for spa with accessibility for service (Clearance of 3 ft (1m) around the spa is recommended to permit servicing the unit)
• Structural support (Proper support is critical. Consult a licensed professional Structural Engineer to determine if the foundation will adequately support the spa the entire time it will be in place, especially if the spa is to be placed on a deck, balcony, roof or other platform not specifically tied into the main structural support).
• Drainage (The area in which the spa is placed must have
adequate drainage to handle the entire water content of the spa. In the event of spillage, areas around the spa may become wet; therefore, all flooring, furniture, walls and adjacent structures
should be able to withstand or resist water and moisture).
• Pathway to and from the spa (free of debris, dirt and leaves as not to be tracked into the spa)
• Closeness to trees and shrubbery (leaves and birds create extra cleaning)
• Sheltered environment (less wind and weather exposure results in lower operating and maintenance costs)
• Proximity to changing area and shelter (especially in cold
weather)
• Environmental factors such as rain, wind, snow and sunlight (run off water, as from an unguttered roof overhang, shortens the life expectancy of the spa cover)
• Accessibly to children (you should be able to monitor the use of the spa from the home to prevent unauthorized use by children; you may want to enclose the spa with a fence or a self latching gate to prevent unauthorized use)
• Cover lift clearance (if you will be installing a cover lift as an add-
on feature, allow 3ft (1m) on all sides of the spa)
CHOOSING A LOCATION
This spa is designed for indoor or outdoor use. Factors to consider
when choosing a location for the spa include: weight of the spa,
indoor/outdoor location and drainage. The following section provides
guidelines that must be followed. It is the sole responsibility of the
spa owner to ensure proper installation of the spa.
IMPORTANT: The base upon which the spa is placed must be
smooth, flat, level and capable of uniformly supporting the combined
weight of the spa, water and users, 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 Spa Skirt and/or
Spa Shell may result. Damaged caused by improper support is not
covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. It is the responsibility of the
spa owner to ensure the integrity of the supporting structure at all
times. We recommend a poured, steel reinforced concrete slab with a
minimum thickness of 4 inches (10cm). Wood decking is
acceptable if it is constructed so that it meets the structural
requirements outlined above.
The spa location must provide drainage away from the spa. Placing
the spa in a depression without provisions for proper drainage could
allow rain water, snow melt, overflow and other casual water to flood
the equipment bay, creating a wet condition in which the spa could
be damaged. For spas recessed into a deck, installation must permit
access to the access panels, either from above or below for servicing.
Ensure that there are no obstructions which would prevent removal of
allaccess panels and access to jet components, especially on the side
of the access panels (typically under the topside Console).
WEIGHT CALCULATIONS: See spa specifications for exact weights.
Typically the dry weight of a spa can range from 600-1000 lbs (US)
(220-455 kg) dry. The volume of the spa can range from 300-400
gallons US (1135-1515 litres). Use the average weight of water (8 lbs
(US) per gallon or 2.1 kg per litre) to approximate the total weight of
the spa without users.
INDOOR LOCATION
Considerations for selecting an indoor spa location:
• Local building codes pertaining to indoor installation of a portable spa
• Adequate space for spa with accessibility for service (Clearance of 3 ft (1m) around the spa is recommended to permit servicing the unit)
• Structural support (Proper support is critical. Consult a licensed professional Structural Engineer to determine if the foundation will adequately support the spa the entire time it will be in place, especially if the spa is to be placed on a second story or higher, `balcony, roof or other platform not specifically tied into the main structural support).
OUTDOOR LOCATION
Considerations for selecting an outdoor spa location:
• Local building and home owner association codes pertaining to the installation of a portable spa
• Do not place your spa within 3m of overhead power lines. Make sure the spa is positioned so that access to the equipment compartment and all side panels will not be blocked. Be certain that your installation will meet all relevant local, and national safety codes and requirements.
• How you intend to use your spa will help you determine where 5
Owners Manual
Locating your hot tub/spa
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
• Drainage (The area in which the spa is placed must have
adequate drainage to handle the entire water content of the spa. In the event of spillage, areas around the spa may become wet; therefore, all flooring, furniture, walls and adjacent structures should be able to withstand or resist water and moisture)
• Proper ventilation (Consult an Engineer or authority who
understands the necessary provisions to vent moist or heated air and air with chemical odors. When the spa is in use considerable amounts of moisture escapes, potentially causing mold and mildew which can damage certain surfaces and surroundings)
• Proximity to the power source (long length of cable can be
expensive)
• Overall enhancement of the environment including aesthetics and privacy
• Cover lift clearance (if you will be installing a cover lift as an add-
on feature, allow 3ft (1m) on all sides of the spa) Damage caused by not following the Choosing a Location guidelines or improper installation not in accordance with local codes and authorities is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Consult local, state/
providence or city building codes before installation.
C) Location & Base:
A sheltered environment can result in lower operating and
maintenance costs. You must allow 1 metre clearance for access to
the spa’s access panel for servicing.
• The site you select for your spa MUST be a flat, level continuous surface that fully contacts the bottom of the spa.
• Your new spa weighs between 300-450kg when dry, and when filled to capacity weighs 900-2300kg. Therefore a solid support is essential when the spa is mounted on a deck or ground level patio/floor. We recommend that you install your spa at ground level. This allows easy access to equipment.
• A 10 to 15cm thick re-enforced concrete slab is ideal, but not essential. In most cases your spa can be placed on properly installed existing patios.
• The base must be at least the size of the bottom of your spa (see dealer for current sizes).
• Water should always drain away from the spa. DO NOT locate your spa in a low run-off area since melting snow or rain could flood the area and cause pump and equipment damage.
• DO NOT situate spa near or under overhead wires, keeping clear of all electrical appliances.
POSITIONING YOUR HOT TUB/SPA
When selecting a site for your spa, take into account the following:
A) Local Codes:
There may be certain restrictions and/or requirements that are
particular to your locality. If in doubt, check with your local council.
B) Delivery Passageway:
The spa will arrive as a unit, and cannot be disassembled. Ideally the
spa will be placed on a trolley, either on its side or on its base. The
unit will then be rolled into place easily crossing grass, gravel, and
small terrain anomalies. For safe and non-intrusive installation, we
require an opening not less than the size of your spa (see dealer for
current sizes) plus at least 40cm height for the trolley and a minimum
of 5cm clearance on each side. If your access does not meet these
conditions, or in the case of other obstacles (steps, fences, walls,
steep hills, etc.) contact Canadian Spa Company for advice and
conditions.

A sheltered environment (such as a gazebo) can prolong the life of the spa and reduce operating costs. When planning out your location be
sure to keep these tips in mind:
• Water should always drain away from the spa. DO NOT locate your spa in a low run-off area since melting snow or rain could flood the area and cause pump and equipment damage
• A minimum of 3’ (1m) of access needs to be given around the base of the spa in case any service is required
• Do not locate your spa underneath any overhanging wires and keep it clear of any electrical appliances
• Try to position your spa away from any overhanging trees as small debris (such as pine needles) can become lodged inside the jets,
causing damage to the equipment
• Be sure to have a proper base created before delivery. Your spa must be placed on a flat, level surface that is at least 4” (10 cm) thick and every part of the spa base must be in contact with the surface. Patio stones, concrete slabs, and well supported decks should be sufficient enough for your spa.
•
For St Lawrence Swim Spa owners: Your spa will arrive as a single unit on a flatbed truck and will require a crane or other mechanical method of unloading to get the spa to your location. We recommend that you hire a professional lifting company to assess the situation and organize the move for you. Canadian Spa Company will not take any responsibility for moving the spa and the spa warranty does not cover damage incurred from unloading. We recommend a 6” (15cm) re-enforced concrete pad as a suitable base for your swim spa.
Failure to properly locate your spa may void your warranty, please contact your local Canadian Spa Company dealer if you have any questions.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR SWIM SPA (EUROPE)
any part of the moving of the spa, and cannot advise on the methods
used to move the spa.
Your swim spa runs on 230V 50Hz single phase
Base
The base for your swim spa must be a flat level surface that contacts
the entire base of the spa. We recommend 15 cm of re-enforced
concrete but any flat level base that is stable and will not shift or
settle will suffice. If sinking your spa into the ground you need to
provide adequate drainage for water so that the hole the spa sits in
cannot flood as this will damage the electronics and electrical
components. Also at least a metre of access to the entire front of the
spa filters is required for component access. You are responsible for
providing access and repair to access to the spa in case of fault.
There are two configurations you can run your swim spa on.
The minimum supply current is 50 amps, in this configuration the
heater will disengage if all 4 pumps are turned on.
The second option is to have the heater on even when the entire spa
is running on full speed; in very cold climates this may be desirable
especially if using the spa outdoors in winter for hours on end. In this
configuration a 60 amp supply is required.
The size of the wire required will be determined by the distance to
the supply and the shielding method; your electrician will be able to
advise you of the required wiring for your specific situation.
Access
The Swim spa will arrive assembled as a single unit on a pallet. It will
weigh approx one metric ton and cannot be disassembled. For this
reason you will need to have a crane or other mechanical method of
unloading the spa and getting it to your site.
We recommend you book a contract lift where the lifting company
will assess the situation and method of lift and carry insurance in
case of accidental damage to the spa or the property. The spa
warranty does not cover damage from installation. It is the
responsibility of the customer or his agents be it crane company or
lift operator to assess the lift and control all aspects of the moving
of the spa. Canadian Spa Company will not take responsibility for

Starting your hot tub/spa
POWERING UP YOUR SPA
Once the spa is properly wired and filled with water, the spa power can
be turned on and Start-up chemicals added.
1. Turn on RCD breaker. If breaker trips immediately check Neutral and Ground Wire connections. Upon initial power up, 4 sets of numbers flash on the LED display of the topside Console. The last number in the sequence is the incoming power meter which can be used to verify that the spa is wired correctly.
3. The spa begins an automatic priming routine which will last 6
minutes (“Pr” is on the LED display).
4. The priming routine will automatically run each spa pump to prime. When the “Pr” is displayed, press any PUMP button to prime that pump or wait for the priming routine to turn on the Pump. IMPORTANT: To avoid pump damage, do not run pumps for more than 1 minute without moving water. If no water is moving, turn power off and perform air lock procedure. See the Troubleshooting section.
5. The Topside Console display flashes “100F” then “--F” for
approximately 2 minutes to determine water temperature as it flows through the heater.
6. The default pre-set temperature is 36.5°C. The last measured temperature is constantly displayed on the LCD readout. This
temperature will be current only when the pump has been
running for at least 2 minutes. Set the desired temperature
between 80-104°F (26- 40°C) by pressing the temp button(s). If the water temperature is below the set temperature, the spa’s heater and indicating heat light will turn on. All features of the Topside Console will be available. The spa will heat
approximately 1° every 10 minutes.
7. Check for leaks! Although spas are fully checked at factory,
shipping & delivery might cause a leak. Remember to pay
particular attention to barrel unions. Contact your Canadian Spa dealer directly if there is a problem.
The above photograph refers to plug and play models only
If your new spa pump does not prime (flow) on the initial start-up...you
may be experiencing an “air lock”.
This normal occurrence can be easily corrected by loosening the
plumbing union on the suction side of the Jet or Circulation pump until
water flows into the pump and all air is expelled.

10.Check for leaks! Although spas are fully checked at factory,
shipping & delivery might cause a leak.
11. Before power is applied, refer to and become familiar with the spa side control operations.
12. Adding a Scale Contriol during the filling process is
recommended. Follow package instructions.
13.Fill the spa until water is 1 inch (25mm) above the waterl ine on the spa shell or 1 inch (25mm) above the mid point of the filter housing. Do not overfill the spa. If needed, more water may be added after the power is turned on and the plumbing is filled. See Powering Up Spa section.
14. Turn water off and remove hose.
15. Reinstall filter cartridge, basket and filter lid.
FILLING UP YOUR HOT TUB/ SPA
16. Add Start-up Chemicals after power is turned on. Refer to
Powering Up the Spa section.
IMPORTANT: Before filling the spa, it is important to read and
understand the water chemistry section of this manual. Do not
proceed until the water chemistry section is understood and the source
water is tested.
Verify that the spa is in the desired final location. Refer to the
‘Choosing a Location’ section - once filled, the spa cannot be moved
without draining.
Follow these filling instructions to avoid damage to the spa pumps:
1. Leave power to the spa off until spa is completely filled.
2. Never leave an unfilled spa exposed to direct sunlight without the Spa Cover installed. Resulting damage such as bubbles and
wrinkles in the spa shell and fading of the jet faces is not
covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
3. Never operate spa pumps without water. Resulting permanent pump and/or heater damage is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
4. Remove all warning labels from spa shell.
5. Apply Acrylic Surface Protection solution if desired (typically
included in Chemical Kit) to keep the spa shell clean, especially around the water line. Follow package instructions.
1. Start by shutting off the breaker connected to your spa
2.
6. Remove the filter lid, basket and filter cartridge.
7. Inspect all Jets (shipping may cause jets to become loose or
detached). Check to see that the Black Drain Valve (located to the left or right of the front access panel) is closed and that all
barrel unions are tight. The slice valves should be open.(valve is open when the handle is pulled out, closed when it is pushed in).
DRAINING YOUR HOT TUB/ SPA USING THE DRAIN VALVE
Open the drain valve located at the side of the spa and let the water drain out. This valve has a straightforward locking mechanism that stops the water from flowing out while you attach a garden hose to the cap. Here are the steps to operate your valve:
3. With the valve extended, unscrew the cap from the middle of the valve.
4. Screw in the male end of the garden hose to the valve and run the hose to your drain location. When ready, push the valve back in and twist it to empty the water from the spa.
IMPORTANT: Follow the next steps closely to prevent damage to the Spa Pumps.
5.
8. Insert garden hose or other clean water source directly into filter housing. Push hose into filter housing until it stops. Fill up to bottom of spa pillows
9. Secure hose placement and turn on water. The spa can be filled with tepid water. If warm water is used, the spa will be available for use in a shorter period of time.
Once the water has stopped flowing out of the drain valve, use the wet/dry vacuum to suck out any remaining water from each jet head (NOTE: If your spa is equipped with a blower, briefly turn the power to the spa back on and run the blower for 10 seconds to remove excess water, shut off the power when finished).
6. Twist valve and pull out to CLOSE.
Filling spa through the filter housing prevents air lock in the spa
pumps, which is an air pocket preventing the flow of water through

Freeze Protection - ICE
If the temperature sensors detect a drop to approximately 44 °F (6.7 °C)
within the heater, then the pump(s) and blower will automatically activate
to provide freeze protection.
The equipment will stay on until 4 minutes after the sensors detect that
the spa temperature has risen to approx. 45°F (7.2 °C) or higher.
N.B. In colder climates, an optional additional freeze sensor may be added
to protect against freeze conditions that may not be sensed by the standard sensors. Aux freeze sensor protection acts similarly except with the
temperature thresholds determined by the switch and without a 4-minute
delay in turn off. See your dealer for details.

TIP: CLEANING YOUR FILTER
It is advisable to clean your hot tub filters every 2 or 3 weeks.
• Turn off spa electrics/power
• Remove the cartridge from the filter housing and use a garden hose, or a tap, to wash down the filter. Rinse until
all dirt and debris have been removed.
• Soak the filter cartridge for at least 1 hour (overnight is preferable) in a clean, suitable size bucket using a filter
cleaner solution.
• Rinse the cartridge again after cleaning to remove any traces of cleaning solution.
• Always dry the filters before inserting them back into your hot tub. This ensures that the filters perform to there
best and last longer. Let them dry naturally. It is also a good idea to keep a spare set of filters.
• Do not run spa without filters

the spa should be prepared as follows:
1 Shut off power
2 Drain spa of all water.
Disconnect the inlet and outlet union to the Control Pack
3 If spa is equipped with a blower, turn on power and run the
blower for 10 seconds to clean the air channels of water.
4 Shut off the power
5 Remove any remaining water with a sponge or wet dry Vacuum.
Remove the motors, pumps, electronics, and blowers and
store them in a warm dry place
6
Disconnect the inlet and outlet union to the Control Pack, and tilt the
Pack, slightly to allow any remaining water to run out. Using a
wet dry vacuum or similar product, vacuum any additional water
out of the uncoupled lines, pack and pump heads.
7
Remove the motors, pumps, electronics, and blowers and store
them in a warm dry place to prevent moisture damaging the
units. (Leave the TOPSIDE control in place and seal wire ends in a
plastic bag.
