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 house electrical panel.

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.

• How spa will complement landscaping and vice versa

• View from inside spa and view of spa from inside of home

• Exposure to sunlight and shading from trees

• Privacy

• Getting to spa from house and return

• Proximity to dressing rooms and bathrooms

• Storage for spa chemicals

• Local building codes (if applicable)

• Power cable

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR INSTALLATION

Installing your spa indoors creates an entirely different set of considerations. With proper planning, no matter what room your spa goes in, it will be your favorite room.

• Work with your Master Spas dealer and contractor to insure all local building, electrical and plumbing codes are met

• Plan for a floor drain to drain off excess water or for draining and cleaning your spa

• A ventilation fan may be necessary due to high humidity created by your spa

• Finished material in your spa room should also be capable of withstanding increased humidity

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1.

Put spa in final position that allows for access to equipment and spa components.

2.

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.

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.

Slice Valve and Pump Union

4.

5.

Turn the power on to the spa. Spa will go through its priming mode. This lasts approximately

5 minutes.

6.

Be sure the jets in your spa are open by turning the face of the jet.

Note: The Master Blasters are only turned on/off through the use of the “jets 3” button or the diverter valve (if equipped).

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.

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

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

For eco Pur

Water Filter system

Step 1:

Your spa should be filled using a Pre-filter, which can be obtained from your local 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Page 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.

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.

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. T he 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 10 ) A second filter cycle can be enabled as needed.

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 14 )

Be Sure to Set tHe tiMe-oF-day

Setting the time-of-day is important for determining filtration times and other background features.

SPA TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE

NOTHING ON THE SPA OPERATES-

1. 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.

DO NOT DIVE.

56

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
