IMPORTANT USER SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Your physiological response to hot water is subjective and depends on your age, health, and medical history. If you
don’t know your tolerance to hot water, or if you get a headache, or become dizzy or nauseous when using your hot tub,
get out and cool off immediately.
WARNINGS
HYPERTHERMIA
1 Children should NOT use a hot tub
without alert adult supervision.
2 Children should not enter a hot tub where water
temperature exceeds body temperature (37°
C / 98.6°F).
3 Prolonged immersion in water temperatures in
excess of 38°C (100°F) may be injurious to your
health. We recommend establishing lower temperatures and
shorter use periods for young children and/or those users potentially affected by hot temperatures. Always confirm water
temperature with an accurate thermometer before entering
your hot tub.
4 Do not allow children to submerge their head under water.
5 Do not use a hot tub unless all suction guards are installed to
prevent body and hair entrapment. Do not sit in front of, or on
top of the suction fittings or skimmer, as this will obstruct
proper circulation and may result in personal injury.
6 Never operate the hot tub pump at high speed without
having all suction and return lines open.
7 Always keep the hardcover installed and locked when the hot
tub is not in use.
8 People using medications and/or having any adverse
medical history should consult a physician before using a hot
tub.
9 People with infectious diseases should not use a hot tub.
10 Exercise caution when entering or exiting a hot tub.
Where practical, install a safety grab bar or handrail.
Turn off the jets before entering the hot tub to improve
visibility of the steps or flat entry area.
11 To avoid unconsciousness and possible drowning, do not
use drugs or alcohol before or during the use of a hot tub.
12 Pregnant women should consult a physician before using a
hot tub.
13 Do not use a hot tub immediately following strenuous
exercise.
14 Do not permit or use electric appliances (such as a light,
telephone, radio or television) within 1.5 m (5 ft) of this
hot tub, unless such appliances are rated at 12VDC or less.
15 Test the GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) monthly.
16 Post emergency phone numbers for Police, Fire Dept.,
and Ambulance at the nearest phone.
17 Maintain water chemistry/balance in accordance with
manufacturer’s instruction
Since your hot tub can be set to reach temperatures of 40°C (104°
F), users should be aware that extended submersion in water that
exceeds normal body temperature can lead to hyperthermia.
4
The causes, symptoms and effects of hyperthermia may be described as follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature
of the body reaches several degrees above the normal
body temperature of 37°C (98.6°F). The symptoms of
hyperthermia include drowsiness, lethargy, and an increase in the
internal temperature of the body. The effects of hyperthermia include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Unawareness of impending hazard
Failure to perceive heat
Failure to recognize the need to exit the hot tub
Physical inability to exit the hot tub
Fetal damage in pregnant woman
Unconsciousness resulting in the danger of drowning
If you sense any of the symptoms of hyperthermia, safely
exit the hot tub immediately.
WARNING
THE USE OF ALCOHOL, DRUGS OR
MEDICATION CAN SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE
RISK OF FATAL HYPERTHERMIA.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOCATION
Your Hydropool hot tub can be installed indoors or out, on the ground, in the ground or half-and-half. The following
information will assist you in choosing the right location for your individual needs. When making your decision,
always remember that hot tubs can be enjoyed year-round, indoors or out, regardless of the climate. Many Hydropool owners report that their favourite time to use a hot tub is in the cooler fall and winter months, while others
praise the enjoyment of using their hot tub in the warmer spring and summer months.
INDOOR LOCATIONS
If members of your family are not cold weather enthusiasts, or if your backyard or patio area is not suitable for a
hot tub installation, then an indoor location for your hot tub
may be your best or only choice. You may wish to create
an exercise/spa area in your home, or install your hot tub
in a glass solarium or four-season room adjoining your
home. Indoor installations not only add a unique look and
appeal
to your home, they provide the privacy and controlled climate to ensure that use and enjoyment of your hot tub is
maximized.
If you should choose an indoor location, you will find further
information as outlined in the section “SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR INSTALLATIONS”
For those who choose an outdoor location, hot tub operating temperatures can be adjusted to match the season. In
colder months, many owners will operate their hot tub in
the range of 38-40°C (101 -104°F).
During warmer months, an operating temperature of 36-37°
C (97-99°F) will provide a refreshing retreat. If you should
choose an outdoor location, you will find further information
as outlined in the section “SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS
FOR OUTDOOR INSTALLATIONS”
OUTDOOR LOCATIONS
For a variety of reasons, outdoor locations are a far more
popular choice. Some of the reasons include:
• Limited indoor space
• Delivery complications due to door openings, stairwells,
etc.
• Limited budget (indoor installations usually also involve
interior home renovations)
• Desire for an outdoor entertainment center
• Hot tub is being installed adjacent to an existing or
planned swimming pool
• Concerns over splashing water inside the home
5
GENERAL INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
c Always provide adequate access for servicing the
support equipment.
1 Your HYDROPOOL Hot Tub is a self-contained pre-plumbed
unit, so that no on-site plumbing connections to the residential water supply or drain are required.
d Decking should be constructed to allow repair access
around the entire hot tub.
2 Ensure that your HYDROPOOL Hot Tub is properly supported by either a level concrete pad, or a properly constructed deck capable of supporting 1220 kg/m2 (250 lbs./
ft.2). If there is a possibility that the pad could shift by freezing/thawing ground movement (such as in clay regions, and/
or areas with high water tables) concrete footings extending
below the frost line are recommended.
6 Installation of a safety grab rail or reachable support for use
when entering or exiting the hot tub is recommended.
3 Decking should be chosen and constructed in a manner that
minimizes the chance of slipping or falling.
7 A nearby garden hose connection is recommended for filling and “topping up” the hot tub.
4 Level your hot tub using wood shims where necessary, ensuring that the tapered end extends at least 61 cm (24 in.)
under the unit.
WARNING
e In remote equipment or no-cabinet installations, you
may add extra insulation, but the equipment area must
have adequate cross-flow ventilation.
The hot tub equipment and all electrical
plugs, outlets and lights within 1.5m (5ft) of
the hot tub must be G.F.C.I protected. Consult your electrician or local electrical authority for further details.
5 If you do not have a factory installed insulated cabinet, it is
assumed that you are building your own custom cabinet,
tiling or decking.
Please consider the following:
a Your HYDROPOOL Hot Tub is self-supporting on its
base. The cabinet should be decorative only, not for support. Never suspend the hot tub from the deck or cabinet.
Access to the hot tub must always be secured:
Outdoors - in accordance with local property by-laws
and/or via an approved fence with a self-closing gate and
a safety hardcover;
b Where the hot tub is not equipped with a factory installed cabinet, it is the installer’s responsibility to ensure
all electrical equipment is weather protected.
Indoors - by a lockable door and a safety hardcover.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS
INDOOR INSTALLATIONS
• When the hot tub is to be installed in a small room (under
150 ft2/14 m2), we recommend that large units be fully or partially submerged in-floor so that it does not dominate the room.
This will also provide greater overhead clearance for entry and
exit to and from the hot tub
• It is beneficial to have the hot tub room located near wash
room and shower facilities
• The hot tub room should have a floor drain to handle splash
water, a window, outside exhaust fan or humidistat controlled
exhaust fan for ventilation. Where this is not practical, the use
of indoor/outdoor carpeting or a tile floor and the opening of a
window while the hot tub cover is removed should be sufficient. You should not have concerns regarding humidity. When
the hardcover is installed, no humidity will escape. During use,
the small amount of humidity released into the room can be
removed with the use of a dehumidifier
• Consider plumbing a water tap and drain location nearby to
facilitate draining and top-up
• Always provide adequate ventilation for the support equipment
• Consult your local Hydropool retailer for further information
OUTDOOR INSTALLATIONS
• Contact your local building code department to determine if
a building permit is necessary and for information on applicable bylaws (distance from property lines, buildings, fencing
requirements, etc.)
• If you are doing any excavating, contact your local gas,
electric, and cable-company to ensure that there are no underground lines
• Locate the hot tub, where practical, within close distance of
a door to the house to maximize potential winter use.
• Ensure that all hot tub support equipment is easily accessible and protected from the elements
• If possible, locate the hot tub where you will enjoy some
privacy, out of the site of neighbours. If this is not possible, a
partial privacy or wind partition, or proper placement of the
optional Hydropool cover lifter should provide adequate privacy
• The hot tub support equipment is designed for indoor (out of
the direct elements) use. When your HYDROPOOL hot tub is
equipped with a factory-installed cabinet, and installed as per
the guidelines of this manual, the equipment will be adequately protected. If the hot tub is shipped without a cabinet,
your custom cabinet or other structure must be designed to
supply protection for the hot tub support equipment from rain,
snow, splash water, etc., but still designed in a manner to
ensure adequate ventilation.
6
SITE PREPARATION
• Non-freezing climates – it is sufficient to ensure that the base
of the hole or cavity created for the tub has a dry, stable, compacted level base and proper drainage
• Climates where freeze/thaw occurs – it is necessary that a
poured level reinforced concrete base, complete with concrete
footings, be installed as outlined in the section ABOVEGROUND INSTALLATIONS
•Areas with a high ground water table – a level concrete base,
as well as a concrete or wood retaining wall to hold back the
earth, is recommended. This forms a box or ‘bunker’, in which
the hot tub is placed
• ALWAYS ensure that there is good drainage, via a properly
designed French drain (gravel) system and/or a sump pump, to
prevent ground water flooding damage to the support equipment or hot tub structure
• Install protective waterproof conduit to house light, or topside
control cables that will be buried
• Access for future service must be considered at the time of
design and installation. Difficult access can result in supplemental service labor charges not covered by the factory warranty.
Consider easily removable deck materials.
• Make sure the hot tub or swim spa is tested during 48 hours
before you prepare the installation of the surrounding/finish
deck around your hot tub. Even though all units are tested in
our plant, some transport/site handling damage can occur and
we suggest you make sure the tub is perfectly waterproof before finalizing your installation.
ABOVE-GROUND INSTALLATIONS
Where the hot tub is a “stand-alone” above-ground installation
to be installed in regions where freeze/thaw conditions may
occur, a level patio stone or pre-formed paver type base may
be sufficient if there is no abutting deck(s) that could be damaged during potential seasonal movement of the ground. The
potential drawback to this type of base is that splash water
could eventually de-stabilize the ground under the base, with
the resultant shift of the support base causing damage to the
hot tub structure.
For best results, we recommend the installation of a level
concrete pad:
• Dig out and level the ground 20-30 cm (8-12 in.) below
your desired base level
• Install 10-15 cm (4-6 in.) of crushed stone
• Next, install 10-15 cm (4-6 in.) of poured concrete
• Level the concrete and apply a broom-type finish
• We recommend that the pad be made 15 cm (6 in.) larger
than the hot tub on three sides, and 1 m (3 ft.) larger on
the side where the access steps and/or planters will be
installed.
In regions where freeze/thaw occurs, or where there will be
custom decking abutting the hot tub we recommend the installation of sono-tubes beneath the pad to prevent shifting.
IN-GROUND & PARTIAL IN-GROUND
INSTALLATIONS
For units being installed fully or partially in the ground, the type
of support will again vary based on whether or not the tub is
being installed in an area with freeze/thaw conditions. Hydropool does not recommend back-filling full in-ground or partial
in-ground installations.
OVERALL SUPPORT
Your Hydropool hot tub is equipped with a factory installed load
support substructure, which distributes the weight of the water
over the entire foot area of the hot tub. The cabinet, either factory installed or customized on-site, should be decorative only,
and not relied on for overall support. Never suspend a hot tub
from a deck or floor by the outer acrylic edge, as this will lead to
product damage and/or serious personal injury.
LEVELING YOUR HYDROPOOL HOT TUB
After the hot tub is properly positioned on the support base,
the entire unit should be checked with a level and shimmed
as necessary. Should you find that the support base is sloped
or otherwise uneven, level your hot tub using TAPERED
wood shims where necessary, ensuring that the tapered end
extends at least 61 cm (24 in.) under the unit.
This will insure contact with the support substructure to appropriately distribute the weight of the unit. Do not just shim under
the cabinet base outside edge, as this will cause structural
stress on the unit, potentially causing unwarrantable damage to
the hot tub structure and /or shell.
7
EQUIPMENT ACCESSIBILITY AND PROTECTION
The equipment must be located in an area where it will remain
dry and will not be exposed to rain, snow or ground water. The
standard Hydropool hot tub has the equipment installed inside
the protective cedar cabinet.
a cabinet: it is necessary that the equipment is installed in an
area that is dry, protected from the elements, has proper ventilation and is easily accessible for service
• Always ensure that the equipment is mounted on a raised
base or platform to prevent potential water damage to the motor, equipment or controls
• Ensure that access to the equipment and the working area
around the equipment is large enough to accommodate a service person • When your hot tub is to be installed above-ground, the cabinet is designed for both protection and accessibility
• When your hot tub is to be installed fully or partially in the
ground, if you are relocating the equipment remotely from the
hot tub, or if you have ordered a hot tub without
REMOTE EQUIPMENT PLACEMENT
Whenever possible, install the pump(s) and control with heater below water level to ensure easy priming and maximize performance. Where above-grade equipment location is necessary, please ensure that your hot tub is equipped with the Remote AboveGrade Equipment Package.
• The equipment should be located as close to the hot tub as possible to maximize jet performance.
• Where you have ordered your hot tub with optional remote equipment, ensure that the equipment is not located more than 3 m.
(10 ft.) from the hot tub.
• Use only 2 in. flex-pipe or larger for the pipe runs from the equipment to the hot tub, with minimal use of elbows or other pipe
restrictions.
• Install protective waterproof conduit to house applicable cords or line extensions such as the sensor and top-side control cables,
light wires or ozone tubing.
• In climates where freeze / thaw occurs we recommend that remote plumbing lines be buried below the frost line and that pipe
insulation is applied over all pipes that run from the hot tub to the remote equipment to help maintain energy efficiency.
UNLOADING / HANDLING YOUR HOT TUB
All Hydropool hot tubs are shipped with a protective combination layer of foam wrap, cardboard and plastic film. Each hot
tub is factory strapped onto a wood skid. If your hot tub is to be
delivered by your local dealer, it will generally arrive on a flat
bed truck or low profile trailer. Most dealers are equipped with
the necessary equipment to maneuver the hot tub from the
truck to the dolly or cart that will be used to move your hot tub
to the installation location.
Most Hydropool models require a clearance width of at least
100 cm. (39 in.) to allow movement of the unit on its side
through alley-ways, fence openings, etc. Where this is not possible, the use of a crane to lift the hot tub from the truck or
trailer over the house to the patio or yard is often a simple and
economical option.
Should your hot tub arrive in a common closed box trailer, it
may be necessary to arrange with a local towing company for
a tilt and load tow truck, with a pulley winch system, to pull the
skid from the larger trailer to the lower profile tow truck flat
bed. The hot tub can be gently slid off the low profile trailer and
positioned on its side on a cart or dolly.
• Do not move or place the hot tub on the side where the
equipment is located as damage could occur
• Never roll or flip the hot tub end over end as the cabinet
could be damaged
• Never lift or handle the hot tub by the plumbing
• Make sure that there is sufficient assistance to gently slide the hot tub off the dolly
or cart to the support base without any damage
WARNING
Important Note: Damage caused during transportation or by
improper handling is not covered by the factory warranty.

ACCESSORIES
TUBULAR PILLOWS
The tubular pillows are a friction fit. Simply compress the
ends slightly, and slide into the semi-circular recess above
the seat or lounger, with the Hydropool logo facing out.
CORNER WRAP PILLOWS
The corner wrap pillows are pre-installed at the factory
and are attached via friction fit. To remove, grasp ends of
pillow and lift up from hot tub seat. To re-install, reverse
procedure.
Although the pillows are designed to remain in-place in the hot tub, to extend the life of the pillows, remove after each use.
WATERFALL PILLOWS
If you received the optional waterfall package, remove the blade from the waterfall receiver fitting in the hot tub (already installed at the factory). Insert the waterfall blade through the front of the special waterfall pillow. The front flange of the waterfall
blade will be recessed into the front of the pillow. If it is not recessed, the blade needs to be removed and re-inserted through
the opposite side of the pillow. Push the pillow into the semi-circular recess, ensuring that the portion of the blade protruding
out of the back of the pillow inserts firmly into the waterfall receiver fitting.
YOUR DREAM SCENTS AROMATHERAPY SYSTEM
Operational Instructions:
This exclusive aromatherapy system is independent from the blower and uses liquid
scents.
To operate the system is very simple:
1) To fill begin by opening the cap “counterclockwise” on the unit and remove. There
are arrows on the cap to indicate the direction in which to turn the cap to open. Then
fill the reservoir with your favorite Hydropool liquid scent (or equivalent).
To replace cap perform the reverse of the above directions.
2) Now the system is ready to work: just push the button to release the scent into the
hot tub and repeat to add more liquid scent as desired, please note by turning the button clockwise you can lock it so that any accidental pushing of the button will not result
in adding unwanted liquid scent when not desired. To unlock turn button counterclockwise.
12
FILTER/ICE-BUCKET LIDS
The filter and ice-bucket covers provide that finishing touch to your
Hydropool hot tub. As the covers are identical to each other, simply
place over either opening for a finished appearance.
SAFETY HARDCOVER LOCKS
CAUTION
The ASTM safety hard cover is designed to open away
from the control area, however, if the hot tub is symmetrical in dimension, the cover can be oriented to open in
either direction. Simply place the cover on the hot tub, pull
the straps down so that they are fully extended, then release slightly so that there is approximately 6 mm (1/4 in.)
of slack. Mark the position on the cabinet, and fasten the
receiver clip with the screws provided.
Always ensure the safety hard cover is
in place and locked whenever the hot
tub is not being used.
OPTIONAL COVER REMOVER
Hydropool offers several different devices to assist in the removal of the safety hard cover. Please refer to the instructions
supplied with your particular cover remover for installation. For further information, contact your local Hydropool retailer.
13
FILLING, CHECKING AND STARTING YOUR HOT TUB
CHECKING
• Although your hot tub was thoroughly water-tested in the
factory, some loosening of fittings can occur during shipping.
Before any decking, tiling or carpeting is completed around
the installation, fill and operate your hot tub to test for leaks
(this ensures easy access and inexpensive correction).
Check all union connections and plumbing for minor leaks.
In the event of a leak, ensure all union connections and
pump plugs are tight and all o-rings/gaskets are in place.
STARTING
• Before applying voltage to power-up your hot tub, it is very
important that you understand the sequence of events that
occur when the system is activated in order that the pump
can be primed efficiently and damage to the system can be
avoided.
•
Turn the main power “on” at your electrical panel.
•
Follow the control instructions for your particular model
hot tub to put the pump into low speed.
See section HYDROPOOL CONTROL SYSTEMS
UNIONS
PUMP PRIMING/RELEASING AN AIR LOCK
• On some systems a message will appear on the display
indicating that the system is in PUMP PRIMING MODE.
This mode will last for 4 to 5 minutes before automatically
entering the normal operation mode. See complete details
for your spa in section HYDROPOOL CONTROL SYSTEMS
•When the hot tub pump is located below water level, the
water should start circulating immediately. If the motor works
but you do not notice water circulation within the first 15 seconds, the pump may require priming due to trapped air
(referred to as an ‘air lock’). To prime (inset 2), open the
hose-bib to allow trapped air to escape. Close as soon as
the water flow from the jets becomes regular. If the pumps
have not primed after 2 minutes, and water is not flowing
from the jets, DO NOT allow the pumps to continue to run.
Turn power off at the main house panel (or GFCI) and try
releasing the air again by loosening the union on the discharge side of the pump(s) while the motor is not running.
Turn the power back on. If the pump(s) does not prime after
15 seconds, sometimes momentarily turning the pump(s) off
and on will help the system to prime (note: do not do this
more than 5 times).
HOSE BIB
PROPER WATER LEVEL
FILLING
• When adding water for the first time, the hot tub should be
filled through the skimmer opening (helps to prevent air
locks) using a standard garden hose, turning the tap on
slowly to prevent damage to the surface by a jerking hose
connection.
• Pull up the handles on the intake and return gate valves
(handles are pulled up when valves are open and pushed
down when valves are closed).
•
Ensure the drain hose-bib is closed.
•
Ensure that all jets are open.
See section JET & FEATURE OPERATION
•
Fill the hot tub to the recommended level as indicated
by the “MIN” and “MAX” marks on the weir door of the
skimmer opening.
• Important: Under NO circumstances should the pump(s)
be allowed to operate without priming beyond 5 minutes, as
this may not only cause unwarrantable damage to the pump,
it may also cause the control system to go into an overheat
condition.
Definition: ‘Priming’ a pump is a term used to describe the
process in which air trapped in the plumbing and pump
wetend (referred to as an ‘air lock’) is released, allowing the
pump to move water efficiently through the plumbing system
and to the jets.
14
RELEASING AIR TRAPPED IN FILTER...
• When the pump starts circulating, it will be necessary to
release trapped air in the filter. Carefully loosen the air vent
valve counter-clockwise until there is the hissing sound of air
escaping. Once there is a steady stream of water, close the
vent valve, ensuring that the o-ring does not become
pinched.
• Turn the Hydrotherapy pump(s) on and re-check for leaks.
The control system will automatically return the pump(s) off
after 15 minutes.
• Adjust the hot tub heat control at the topside panel to the
desired water temperature.
• Adjust water balance (pH, TA, calcium hardness) to recommended levels and add sanitizer once the water temperature
reaches 20oC (68oF).
AIR VENT VALVE
See section HOT TUB WATER MAINTENANCE
• The hot tub will require 8-10 hours to reach the desired
temperature.
• Keep insulated safety hard cover on the hot tub, and the
air controls closed during the entire heat up process.

INITIAL START-UP
TEMPERATURE CONTROL
FUNCTIONALITY AND ADJUSTMENT
After you manually exit or the system automatically exits Priming Mode, your hot tub will automatically
heat to the factory preset default temperature of 38°C (100°
F) The topside panel will briefly show the default temperature, and then the display will show (- - - oF) and time (12:00
pm).
Before applying voltage to power-up your hot tub, it is very
important that you understand the sequence of events that
occur when the system is activated in order that the pump
can be primed efficiently and damage to the system can be
avoided.
At initial power-up, the system will do a lamp test where all
of the segments and LED’s are lighting up. Then the system
will show the software part number “85”, the software revision “r3” and then the low level selection “L1”.
After the initial software indicators are shown, the display will
flash between temperature (- - - oF) and time (12:00 pm).
This display is indicating that the system is in PUMP PRIMING MODE. In this mode pump 2 (if installed) will run for one
minute and then it will turn off and the system will activate
pump 1 to run for one minute before automatically exiting
and entering the normal operation mode.
Note that the water temperature is not yet displayed, as the
system requires approximately 2 minutes of water flow
through the heater to determine temperature. After 2 minutes
the display will show the current measured water temperature
Press the keypad to increase the temperature to the desired
setting. The heat indicator light on the topside panel will turn
on indicating that the display shows the desired temperature,
NOT the current water temperature.
To Check/Change the Set Temperature
The last measured temperature is constantly displayed on
the topside panel. When this pad is pressed once any time
during normal operation, the display will show the set temperature for 5 seconds. Press this pad a second time to increase or decrease the set temperature. To change the direction of the temperature settings (ie. lower vs. raise the
temperature), allow the display to revert back to the current
water temperature then press the pad again.
The temperature can be adjusted from 15°C (59°F) to 40°C
(104°F) in 0.5°C (1°F) increments.
While in this mode, the heater circuit is disabled to allow the
priming process to be completed without the possibility of
energizing the heater element during low flow or no flow
conditions. The system will not automatically activate any of
the functions, however, by pushing the pad on the topside
control, the pump can be manually activated to facilitate
priming.
Definition: ‘Priming’ a pump is a term used to describe the
process in which air trapped in the plumbing and pump wetend (referred to as an ‘air lock‘) is released, allowing the
pump to move water efficiently through the plumbing system
and to the jets.
Heater Function
In a regulation cycle, the system first generates water flow
through the heater housing and the plumbing, in order to
ensure accurate water temperature readings as well as
avoiding heater activation in dry conditions.
The system verifies periodically that all parameters are within
the normal range.
If the readings received from the system are not valid, blanks
(- - -) will be displayed until normal readings have been successfully found.
After verifying pump activation and taking a water temperature reading if required, the system automatically turns the
heater on to reach and maintain water temperature at the set
point. The heater indicator lights up when the heater is on, It
flashes when there is a request for more heat but the heater
has not started yet.

In order to program the filter cycle you must press and
hold the FILTER key for 5 seconds. The display will show
the time of day with the hours flashing. A press of the FILTER key will then flash the minutes. A press of the FILTER key will display FS (filter start time). Use the temperature UP and DN keys to select the start time. A press
of the FILTER key will display FD (filter duration). Use the
temperature UP and DN keys to select the duration (0-24
hrs). A press of the FILTER key will display FF (filter frequency). Use the temperature UP and DN keys to set the
frequency (1-2). A press of the FILTER key will display EP
(economy mode programming). Use the temperature UP
and DN keys to turn off or on (0-1). A press of the FILTER
key will display ES (economy start). Use the temperature
UP and DN keys to set the start time. A press of the FILTER key will display ED (economy duration). A press of
the temperature UP and DN keys will select the duration
(1-24 hrs). A press of the FILTER key will display a flashing F. Use the temperature UP and DN keys to toggle
between F and C. Press the FILTER key to exit the programming.
STANDBY / DRAIN ASSIST MODE
A long press of 5 seconds will enable the
“STANDBY MODE”. This mode allows you to
stop all outputs including all automatic functions
such as a filter cycle, heating requests and smart
winter mode purging for 30 minutes to perform quick spa
maintenance. When the “STANDBY MODE” is activated,
the display will toggle between the “OFF” message, the
“CLOCK” and the water temperature.
Press either Pump 1 or the Pump 2 key to restart the system before the expiration of the 30 minute delay.. The spa
light will flash a few seconds before the end of the 30 minutes to warn you the system is about to resume its normal
operation and the display will then show “ON” for 3 seconds.
Once the “OFF” mode is enabled, a quick press of the
Pump 1 key will activate the “DRAIN MODE” and the filtration pump will turn on and run for 30 minutes. If your tub
has not been completely drained down you can simply
press the Pump 1 button again to continue the cycle. A
press of any key will disable the “OFF” and “DRAIN” mode
and resume its normal operation.
PURGE CYCLES
The purge cycles are programmed to begin at the start of
each filter cycle. Pump 2 activates for 1 minute, shuts off
and then Pump 1 activates for 1 minute and then shuts
off.
OZONATOR OPTIONAL
The ozonator operates during FILTER CYCLES only and
remains off for 30 minutes after usage.
SMART WINTER MODE
Smart Winter Mode protects your system from
the cold by turning the pumps on several times a day to
prevent water from freezing in the pipes. The Smart Winter Mode indicator turns on when in this mode of operation.
If the temperature drops to 4°C (39°F) within the heater
chamber, the system automatically activates the pump to
provide freeze protection. The pump will operate until the
temperature reaches 5°C (41°F) before returning to normal system mode.
COOL DOWN
After heating the spa water to the desired set point, the
heater is turned off, but the filtration pump remains on for
a certain amount of time to ensure adequate cooling of the
heating element in order to prolong the useful life of the
heater. The heater icon flashes during this time.
SETTING THE TIME OF DAY
In order to set the time of day you must press and hold the
FILTER key for 5 seconds. The display will show the time
of day with the hours flashing. Use the temperature keys

INTERCHANGING JET INSERTS
A great feature for custom tailoring the jets in your Hydropool hot tub to suit your personal hydrotherapy needs.
Jets of like size and dimension may be interchanged with
each other, for example, if you wished to swap a Poly
Storm Directional jet for a Poly Storm Twin Roto jet, or a
Mini Storm Twin Roto jet for a Mini Storm Directional jet.
JET WATER FLOW ADJUSTMENT
Your Hydropool hot tub features adjustable water flow on
specific hydrotherapy jets. To reduce the flow: grasp the
outer flange of the jet, and turn clockwise approximately a
1/4 turn. When it hits the stop, the jet is considered closed,
and flow will be restricted. To increase the flow: from the
closed position, turn the jet counterclockwise approximately
1/4 turn. When it hits the stop, the jet is open, and there is
maximum jet flow. Do not attempt to turn the jet past the
stop, as this will unclip the jet internal from the socket.
All Hydropool hot tubs are shipped from the factory with the
jets in the open position.
CLEANING STAINLESS STEEL JETS & CONTROLS:
Use a Cleaner such as Brasso or Stainless Steel Cleaner
to bring back the lustre to your Stainless Steel parts
weekly. This must be done otherwise the stainless steel
will discolor and possibly rust due to chemical exposure.
JET AIR FLOW ADJUSTMENT
Your Hydropool hot tub features adjustable airflow on specific hydrotherapy jets. To reduce the flow: turn the handle
on the air control clockwise. When it hits the stop, the air is
closed, and airflow will be restricted. To increase the flow:
turn the handle on the air control counter-clockwise. When it
hits the stop, the air control is fully opened. For maximum
operating efficiency, the air controls must remain closed
when your hot tub is not in use.
CLEANING CASCADING WATERFALL JETS:
1 Put hot tub in Stand By Mode.
2 Rotate outer ring of Cascading Jet Counter Clockwise to
remove cover.
3 Grab center nozzle with Needle-nose pliers or tweezers
- pull out and clean, then rinse.
4 Reassemble in reverse order.
ACCUPRESSURE SEQUENCE MASSAGE FILTER
This filter must be cleaned at each drain and refill of your
hot tub to ensure proper functionality of the Accupressure
Sequence Massage. It is located behind the door in the
equipment area. To access the filter screen turn large
canister section of the assembly counter-clockwise till the
apparatus separates revealing screen filter. Run filter under tap to clean out any debris and reassemble in reverse
order.
28
JET INSERT REMOVAL & REPLACEMENT
POLY/MINI STORM DIRECTIONAL & TWIN ROTO
POWER STORM MASSAGE & TWIN ROTO
TO REMOVE:
• Turn the jet counter-clockwise to unclip & pull out of socket.
TO RE-INSTALL:
• Push the jet into the socket until it snaps into place, ensuring
the square pin on
the back of the jet lines-up with the groove in the socket flange.
DIVERTER VALVE
When your HYDROPOOL hot tub is equipped with a diverter
valve, it allows you to direct the flow of the water so that it
increases the power of the jets on the CAPTAINS CHAIR or
on the LOUNGER, or a combination of the two. Simply turn
the valve left or right.
Always: return the valve handle to the middle position before
exiting the hot tub to ensure that there is air and water flow to
the ozone jet and ice-bucket/filter niche drains for proper performance.
WATERFALL CONTROL OPTION
If your hot tub was ordered with the optional waterfall feature, then you will have a waterfall flow control valve. The waterfall feature was designed to provide a gentle cascade of water over the neck and shoulder area. Simply turn the top of the control
clockwise for less water flow, and counterclockwise for more water flow.

HOT TUB WATER BALANCE – GENERAL OVERVIEW
NOTABLE POINTS
• The reliability and longevity of your hot tub support equipment
are directly related to how well water quality is maintained!
• The small volume of water in your hot tub is easily affected by
the introduction of oils, lotions, perspiration and chemicals. It is
imperative that you give your hot tub regular attention to maintain clean, safe and balanced water to prevent premature damage and/or failure (corrosion/calcification) to the support equipment. Maintaining proper hot tub water balance and sanitizer
levels is extremely important. Neglected hot water will allow
bacteria to quickly spread.
• The mineral content of hot tub water increases due to water
evaporation, sanitizers and other chemicals. If the mineral concentration, particularly calcium, becomes too high, the minerals
will literally “drop” or precipitate out of the water and deposit on
the hot tub walls, plumbing, jets, in the filter and on the heater
element.
• It is very important that pH be checked frequently and maintained in the recommended range as indicated in the chartWATER BALANCE SUMMARY FOR YOUR HOT TUB
• It is also very important that Total Alkalinity (the ability of the
water to resist a change in pH) be maintained in the recommended range as indicated in the chart WATER BALANCE
SUMMARY FOR YOUR HOT TUB
• Although there may be two identical hot tub models right next
door to each other, the maintenance requirements will be different, dependant on such factors as:
– bather load
– frequency of use/quantity of bathers
– different body chemistry
– sun vs. shade
– temperature
WARNING
CHEMICAL HANDLING SAFETY HINTS
• Never pre-mix chemicals with each other prior to adding
to hot tub water.
• Add only one chemical to the water at a time.
• Always add chemicals to water and not vice-versa.
• Chemicals may be corrosive, so handle with care and
store in a cool dark place.
• Never smoke near chemicals as most are flammable
• Ensure any spilled chemicals are carefully cleaned up
immediately.
• Always have the POISON CONTROL telephone number
handy in the event of an emergency.
• Keep chemicals out of children‘s reach
• Wear safety glasses and gloves when handling chemicals.
INITIAL WATER FILL & BALANCE
1 Make sure the hot tub water is circulating.
2 Add a sequesterant (stain and scale controller). Allow water
to circulate for an hour before adding anything else to the hot
tub water.
3 Add a Shock / oxidizing agent .
4 Add sanitizing tablets (Bromine or Chlorine) to the dispenser:
For these reasons, it is very important to develop proper hot tub
water maintenance habits and follow your Hydropool retailer’s
recommended water maintenance procedures.
DISPENSER
Heater and other component failure due to
improperly maintained pH or Total Alkalinity
is not covered under warranty.
CHECK VALVE
ASSEMBLY DISPENSER
• Built in dispenser: if your Hydropool hot tub was ordered
with the optional built in bromine/chlorine dispenser,
(located in the lid of the cartridge filter housing), refer to
section CARTRIDGE FILTER
for details on removing and
re-installing the lid. Once the
filter lid is removed, you’ll
notice a clear 2.5 cm (1”) diameter tube extending from
the bottom of the lid.
Expose the large Refill hole at the end of the tube and add 5 or
6 tablets. Do not overfill dispenser as performance will be affected. Turn to expose the most number of smaller holes and
allows water to circulate for 3 or 4 hours before testing level.
Adjust to lesser number of holes as necessary to maintain a
level of 2 –4 PPM Sanitizer.
•
Floating dispenser: As above, add 6 or 7 tablets, adjust
initially to ‘5’, allow water to circulate for 3 to 4 hours, then
test.
The tablets will dissolve slowly over a 10-14 day period, depending on setting, and use of the hot tub.
5 Test pH and Total Alkalinity and adjust accordingly.

GLOSSARY OF COMMON WATER MAINTENANCE TERMS
1 CHLORINE – in granular, liquid or puck/tablet form, is an oxidant and biocidal agent. It is very effective and fast acting. Recommended chlorine residual level is 3.0 to 5.0 ppm.
2 CHLORAMINES – a compound formed when chlorine combines with nitrogen or ammonia present in the water. When allowed to
go unchecked, it causes eye and skin irritation and is indicated by a strong chlorine odor.
3 ONE-PART BROMINE – also available in puck/tablet form, is another type of oxidant/biocidal agent, and is introduced into the hot
tub water via a brominator. Recommended bromine residual level is 3.0 to 5.0 ppm
4 TWO-PART BROMINE – composed of a liquid or powder component introduced manually into the water on a weekly basis, and a
granular component that is added daily or as the hot tub is used.
5 BROMAMINES – are formed when bromine destroys nitrogen-bearing organic matter. Unlike chloramines, bromamines don’t
cause eye irritation, however, when allowed to go unchecked, will cause an objectionable odour.
6 SHOCK – the practice of adding an oxidizing agent to hot tub water to destroy ammonia, nitrogenous and organic contaminants
(chloramines and bromamines)
7 pH – a logarithmic value expressing the relative acidity or basicity of a substance (such as hot tub water) as indicated by the hydrogen ion concentration. pH is expressed as a number on a scale of 0 to 14, where 0 is most acidic, 1 to 7 being acidic, 7 considered
neutral, 7 to 14 being basic, and 14 being most basic. The ideal range for hot tub water is 7.4 to 7.6 ppm
8 pH INCREASER – raises the pH level of the water.
pH DECREASER – lowers the pH level of the water.
10 TOTAL ALKALINITY (TA) – the amount of carbonate, bicarbonate and hydroxide compounds present in the water that determines the ability or capacity of the water to resist change in pH. Also known as the ‘buffering’ capacity.
11 ALKALINITY BOOSTER – raises the alkalinity.
12 CALCIUM HARDNESS – the calcium portion of the total alkalinity which represents 70 to 75% of total hardness. Calcium concentrations determine whether water is ‘soft’ - too little calcium, or ‘hard’ -too much calcium.
13 CALCIUM BOOSTER – increases the calcium level.
14 TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS (TDS) – a measure of the total amount of dissolved matter in the water (calcium, carbonates, bicarbonates, magnesium, metallic compounds, etc.)
15 SEQUESTERANTS (STAIN AND SCALE CONTROLLERS) – keeps dissolved metals and minerals in the water from attacking
the hot tub shell and support equipment components.
16 DEFOAMER – removes foam build-up from the water surface. At best, this is a temporary remedy, as excessive foam is merely a
symptom of improper water balance (typically high organic residue and/or high pH).
17 CARTRIDGE FILTER CLEANER – degreases and cleans cartridge filters.
18 OZONATOR – generates Ozone (a gaseous molecule composed of 3 atoms of oxygen) and is injected into the hot tub water for
the oxidation of water contaminants.
19 TEST KIT – used to monitor specific chemical residual or demands in the water. May be in the form of litmus strips or liquid drops.
20 PPM – abbreviation for ‘parts per million’, the unit of measurement used in chemical testing which indicates the parts by weight in
relation to one million parts by weight of water. Essentially identical to the term mg/L - milligrams per liter.

CORONA DISCHARGE OZONE TECHNOLOGY
All Hydropool hot tubs are factory prepared to accommodate
ozonators. The Hydropool Corona Discharge Ozonator is regarded as the most technologically advanced system on the
market, allowing longer contact time with the hot tub water
resulting in reduced chemical consumption and clearer,
cleaner water. Hydropool’s unique ozone injection system both
maximizes the dispersion of the ozone gas and decreases the
bubble size resulting in longer contact with the water and increased water quality and purity. The ozone/water mixture is
sent down a series of tubes where the ozone is “broken down”
into even smaller bubbles before being remixed with the water
reducing the “off-gassing” commonly found with other ozone
systems.

5 With a garden hose and spray nozzle, hose off the cartridge
element, ensuring to carefully separate every pleat.
6 To remove collected lotions, body oils, etc. soak the cartridge in warm water and a filter cleaning/emulsifying compound (available at your HYDROPOOL retailer).
7 A cleaning cylinder may be purchased from your HYDROPOOL Hot tub Retailer.
8 Rinse thoroughly and dry before replacing.
9 Hydropool recommends purchasing a spare filter cartridge
so that you always have a clean substitute ready to rotate.
10 After the element has dried - if necessary, lightly brush
between pleats with a fine paint-brush to remove remaining dirt particles.
FILTER HOUSING
CLEANING THE ACRYLIC SURFACE
The acrylic surface can be cleaned and polished using a soft
cloth and acrylic cleaner, available at your Hydropool retailer.
• Important: Do not use detergents - the
remaining residues will adversely affect
water chemistry, making it difficult to
maintain proper water balance
• Do Not use abrasive cleaners – damage
to the acrylic surface will occur.
Do not use a wire brush or other devise
to clean cartridge element.
Do not put in dishwasher or washing machine.
SAFETY HARD COVER
When a hot tub is uncovered, over 90% of heat is lost from
the water surface. This evaporation also affects the chemical
balance and could create humidity problems indoors. HYDROPOOL Safety Hard
Covers are engineered for maximum thermal efficiency and
appearance. They are hinged in the middle for easier handling, and the zip fastener allows the tapered foam inserts to
be changed if damaged. The skirt of the safety hard cover
hugs the lip of the hot tub for a tight fit. The handles are
placed so that even one person can easily carry a large
cover. The locks, with one part fastened to the deck or skirt,
prevent small children or animals from entering the hot tub.
Do not drag the safety hard cover across the hot tub or decking. Fold the cover first, then lift by the handles. Standing on
the hardcover could cause the tapered foam inserts to crack,
which will lead to water absorption.
RE-INSTALLATION
11 Place the cartridge filter back into the filter housing.
12 Replace the filter housing lid, pushing it down to seat, ensuring that the lid o-ring does not become twisted.
13 Hydropool recommends that the lid o-ring be lubricated
with a non-petroleum based lubricant (ie. Silicone gel)
when it becomes dry. This will help to prevent twisting and
pinching as the lid is installed, and significantly increase
longevity of the o-ring.
14 Install the filter lock-ring, turning clockwise until the lock
tab snaps into place.
15 Close the air vent/bleeder valve.
16 Take the system out of STANDBY/DRAIN ASSIST mode.
17 When the pump starts circulating on low speed, it will be
necessary to release trapped air in the filter. Carefully
loosen the air vent/bleeder valve counter-clockwise until
there is the hissing sound of air escaping. Once there is a
steady stream of water, close the vent valve, ensuring that
the o-ring does not become pinched.
NEVER LEAN OR STAND ON YOUR HARDCOVER.
The cover should be cleaned at least twice a year with a vinyl
moisturizer and protector.

11 To completely flush the old water from the plumbing lines:
allow fresh water to fill into the foot-well area while the old
water continues to be pumped out. Always keep at least
10cm (4 in.) of water in the foot-well so that pump 1 remains primed.
12 When the water from the drain hose turns clear (indicating
fresh fill water), flush is complete.
13 Turn OFF the low speed pump.
14 Close the drain-hose bib on the hot tub plumbing line and
continue filling hot tub with fresh water.
15 Place cover on hot tub (to avoid splash-out).
16 Open pump 1 return gate valve.
17 Press any button on the topside control panel (other than
the pump 1 button) to take the system out of STANDBY/
DRAIN ASSIST * mode. Pump 1 low speed and the
heater will activate to circulate and heat the water while
filling continues. This also reduces the possibility of an
airlock occurring.
18 Continue adding fresh fill water until level is approximately
19mm (3/4 in.) from the top of the skimmer opening.
19 Once fill is complete, remove the #10 rubber expansion
plug from the bottom of the skimmer housing.**
20 If the filter housing was opened to replace the cartridge
filter, it will be necessary to release trapped air from the
filter housing by carefully loosening the small black air
vent/bleeder valve located on the top of the filter housing.
When water begins to escape close the air vent valve.
21 In the unlikely event of a pump air lock (pump 1 is operating but there is no water movement from the jets), refer to
section PUMP PRIMING/RELEASING AN AIR LOCK
CHANGING THE HOT TUB WATER
A hot tub should be drained every 8-12 weeks, depending
on size and amount of use. If your hot tub is used daily or by
a large number of bathers, the water should be drained
more often. One method to determine the approximate
length of time between water changes is to divide the water
volume (in liters) of your hot tub by 13.5 and then divide by
the average number of bathers each day.
Formula
(_______ ÷ 13.5 ) ÷ (________) = (________)
Volume of water
in litres
Average daily

EXAMPLE:
1000 liters divided by 13.5 divided by 2 = 37 days. The hot
tub water must be changed when the amount of dissolved
solids becomes excessive, and is usually indicated by “gray”
or dull looking water.
DRAINING YOUR HOT TUB HYDROPOOL EXCLUSIVE
QUICK-DRAIN™ & FILL REFER TO DIAGRAM
OVERVIEW
• Requires the use of 2 garden hoses - drain hose and
fill hose
• While first garden hose is draining old water from hot
tub…
•…second hose is used to wash down interior surface of
the hot tub and for fresh water fill.
** It may be necessary to put system into STANDBY/
DRAIN ASSIST* mode in order to remove plug.
REFER TO FIGURE 1 & FIGURE 2
1 Locate nearest drain facility (Check your local bylaws).
2 Put the hot tub control system into STANDBY/DRAIN
ASSIST* mode. The system will automatically exit
Standby Mode after 1 hour and resume normal operating
functions.
3 Remove the skimmer basket so that the hole beneath it is
accessible, and insert the #10 rubber expansion plug
provided.
4 Attach garden hose to hose bib located on plumbing line
beside the hot tub control system.
5 Run garden hose to drain location.
6 Open hose bib.
7 Close pump1 return gate valve next to the hose bib (this
directs the water out the drain hose).
8 Activate the low speed pump.
9 Monitor the hot tub while it drains.
10 Use the second garden hose to wash down interior surface as the hot tub continues to drain. A sponge may
also be used to wipe down the interior surface.

WATER SOFTENERS
Never fill a hot tub with water from a water softener, as it
could adversely effect the water chemistry, making it difficult
to maintain proper water balance. If you live in an area with
hard or soft water, give careful attention to your Calcium
Hardness level. Topping up with soft water is acceptable.

CABINET WING-LOCKS
The high quality wing-locks provided on your Hydropool Hot
Tub cabinet not only firmly secure the equipment access
panel, they also serve as convenient handles for removal
and replacement. In order to maintain optimum performance
and extended life, Hydropool recommends lubricating twice
annually with a silicone based lubricant.
RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: Super-Lube silicone based
lubricant (or equivalent). Available at major retailers.
CAUTION: Do not use a petroleum based
lubricant, as this will cause premature deterioration of the lock seal.
PROTECTING YOUR CABINET WOOD FINISH
HYDROPOOL hot tub cabinets are made from Western cedar and are factory stained. Once stained, cedar weathers
well, and with proper care will maintain its beauty for many
years. In order to maintain the translucent finish and to enhance the wood grain beauty staining must be performed on
a regular basis.
37
These protective finishes stabilize the wood grain and
build a durable, breathable water-repellent barrier between the wood surface and the elements. These products are available from your local building supply center..
WINTERIZING YOUR HYDROPOOL HOT TUB
In the event that you do not wish to use your hot tub yearround, it is very important that you properly winterize to protect against damage from freezing. Your HYDROPOOL retailer can perform this service for a nominal fee. If you
choose to winterize your hot tub yourself, please follow the
directions outlined below:
• Cover exposed plumbing connections with plastic bags
and duct tape.
• Where practical, disconnect hot tub support equipment
and store in a dry heated area.
• Install the safety hardcover, and cover the entire hot tub
with a tarp to prevent premature weathering of the cabinet
and the safety hard cover.
• Remove snow build up regularly to prevent damage to the
safety hard cover.
• It is assumed that your HYDROPOOL hot tub has been
properly installed on a reinforced concrete pad to eliminate
lifting of the hot tub due to hydrostatic ground water pressure.
• Drain the hot tub entirely see section - DRAINING YOUR
HOT TUB
• Remove and clean the cartridge filter element see section CARTRIDGE FILTER
• Using a wet/dry utility vacuum, remove remaining water
from the jet openings, filter cartridge housing, and footwell.
• Either pour or use a turkey-baster where necessary to add
potable biodegradable RV antifreeze to areas such as pump
wet end, jet channels, filter housing, blower channels.
DO NOT USE AUTOMOTIVE ANTIFREEZE.
• Important: mixing potable biodegradable RV antifreeze
with water significantly reduces its ability to protect against
freezing. Therefore, it is very important ALL water is removed from the hot tub plumbing before adding.
• Add potable RV antifreeze to the holes in the bottom suction/drain to prevent any trapped water in the false floor from
freezing and damaging the hot tub shell.
• Turn pump on for only a few seconds to circulate the antifreeze.
• Unthread and disconnect all unions in the support equipment area. Remove lowest winter drain plug on pump face
plate. Repeat for all pumps, where applicable.
If you are not 100% confident that
your hot tub is properly winterized,
please consult your authorized
HYDROPOOL Hot Tub Retailer.
Caution recommends that an authorized Hydropool Retailer winterize your hot tub in the initial year.
Damage as a result of freezing is
not covered by the warranty.

GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING CONTINUED
…POWER FAILURE OR SYSTEM FAULT DURING
COLD WEATHER CONDITIONS
If your control system will not reset, (ie. GFCI trips) or if your
pump will not circulate for any other reason, place a low
wattage space heater under the cabinet in the equipment
area. This will delay the risk of freezing while a service appointment is scheduled.
WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF...
…POWER FLUCTUATIONS
The power supply into your home is, for the most part,
fairly consistent.
However, when local power demand is high, there is a
tendency for the voltage entering your home to drop
(sometimes significantly) or fluctuate.
This condition is referred to as a ‘brown-out’. Although
safeguards have been built into the system to protect
against this condition, supply voltage may drop low
enough, if even for a second, to cause the system to
display a ‘ghost’ message. Should this occur or if the
display shows partial messages, try resetting the system
by turning power to the hot tub off, waiting a few minutes,
then turning power on again. If this does not reset the
system, contact your local Hydropool retailer or service
organization.
Always follow the manufacturers instructions
when locating and placing a portable electric
space heater into service. Ensure that safe clearance
to combustible surfaces is maintained. Do not
leave unattended.
