Main Menus
Navigation
Navigating the entire menu structure is done with 2 or 3 buttons on the control panel.
The WARM and COOL buttons are indicated by a single
Temperature icon throughout this User Guide. Some panels only have
one Temperature Button.
Panels that have two Temperature buttons can use both of them
to simplify navigation and programming where a single Temperature icon is shown.
The LIGHT Button is also used to
choose the various menus and navigate each section.
Typical use of the Temperature button(s) allows changing the
Set Temperature while the numbers are flashing in the LCD.
Pressing the LIGHT button while the numbers are flashing will
enter the menus.
The menus can be exited with certain button presses. Waiting for 10
seconds will return the panel to normal operation and a display of spa status.

Fill it up!
Preparation and Filling
Fill the spa to its correct operating level. Be sure to open all valves and jets in the plumbing system before filling to allow
as much air as possible to escape from the plumbing and the control system during the filling process.
After turning the power on at the main power panel, the top-side panel display will go through specific sequences. These
sequences are normal and display a variety of information regarding the configuration of the hot tub control.
Priming Mode – M019*
This mode will last for 4-5 minutes or you can manually exit the priming mode after the pump(s) have primed.
Regardless of whether the priming mode ends automatically or you manually exit the priming mode, the system will automatically return to normal heating and filtering at the end of the priming mode. During the priming mode, the heater is
disabled to allow the priming process to be completed without the possibility of energizing the heater under low-flow or
no-flow conditions. Nothing comes on automatically, but the pump(s) can be energized by pushing the “Jet” buttons.
If the spa has a Circ Pump, it can be activated by pressing the “Light” button during Priming Mode.
Priming the Pumps
As soon as the above display appears on the panel, push the “Jet” button once to start Pump 1 in low-speed and then
again to switch to high-speed. Also, push the Pump 2 or “Aux” button, if you have a 2nd pump, to turn it on. The pumps
will now 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 pressing a “Temp” button (Up or Down). 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 momentarily display the set temperature but the display
will not show the temperature yet, as shown below. This is because the system requires approximately 1 minute of water

flowing through the heater to determine the water temperature and display it.

Spa Behavior
Pumps
Press the “Jets 1” button once to turn pump 1 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.
On non-circ systems, the low-speed of pump 1 runs when the blower or any other pump is on. If the spa is in Ready Mode
(See page 6), Pump 1 low may also activate for at least 1 minute every 30 minutes to detect the spa temperature (polling)
and then to heat to the set temperature if needed. When the low-speed turns on automatically, it cannot be deactivated
from the panel, however the high speed may be started.
Circulation Pump Modes
If the system is equipped with a circ pump, it will be configured to work in one of three different ways:
1, The circ pump operates continuously (24 hours) 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).
2, The circ pump stays on continuously, regardless of water temperature.
3, A programmable circ pump will come on when the system is checking temperature (polling), during filter cycles, during
freeze conditions, or when another pump is on.
The specific Circulation Mode that is used has been determined by the Manufacturer and cannot be changed in the field.
Filtration and Ozone
On non-circ systems, Pump 1 low and the ozone generator will run during filtration. On circ systems, the ozone will run with
the circ pump.
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 blower (if there is one) or Pump 2 (if there is one) will run briefly to purge its plumbing to maintain good water quality.
Freeze Protection
If the temperature sensors within the heater detect a low enough temperature, then the pump(s) and the blower automatically activate to provide freeze protection. The pump(s) and blower will run either continuously or periodically depending
on conditions.
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. Auxiliary freeze sensor protection acts similarly except with the temperature thresholds
determined by the switch. See your dealer for details.
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 12)

Temperature and Temp Range
Adjusting the Set Temperature
When using a panel with Up and Down buttons (Temperature buttons), pressing Up or Down will cause the temperature to
flash. Pressing a temperature button again will adjust the set temperature in the direction indicated on the button. When
the LCD stops flashing, the spa will heat to the new set temperature when required.
If the panel has a single temperature button, pressing the button will cause the temperature to flash. Pressing the button
again will cause the temperature to change in one direction (e.g. UP). After allowing the display to stop flashing, pressing
the Temperature Button will cause the temperature to flash and the next press will change the temperature in the opposite
direction (e.g. DOWN).
Press-and-Hold
If a Temperature button is pressed and held when the temperature is flashing, the temperature will continue to change
until the button is released. If only one temperature button is available and the limit of the Temperature Range is reached
when the button is being held, the progression will reverse direction.
Dual Temperature Ranges
This system incorporates two temperature range settings with independent set temperatures. The High Range designated in
the display by an “up” arrow, and the Low Range designated in the display by a “down” arrow.
These ranges can be used for various reasons, with a common use being a “ready to use” setting vs. a “vacation” setting.
The Ranges are chosen using the menu structure below. Each range maintains its own set temperature as programmed by
the user. This way, when a range is chosen, the spa will heat to the set temperature associated with that range.
High Range can be set between 80°F and 104°F.
Low Range can be set between 50°F and 99°F.
Key
More specific Temp Ranges may be determined by the Manufacturer.

Mode – Ready and Rest
In order for the spa to heat, a pump needs to circulate water through the heater. The pump that performs this function is
known as the “heater pump.”
The heater pump can be either a 2-Speed Pump 1 or a circulation pump.
If the heater pump is a 2-Speed Pump 1, READY Mode will circulate water every 1/2 hour, using Pump 1 Low, in order to
maintain a constant water temperature, heat as needed, and refresh the temperature display. This is known as “polling.”
REST Mode will only allow heating during programmed filter cycles. Since polling does not occur, the temperature display
may not show a current temperature until the heater pump has been running for a minute or two.
Circulation Mode (See Page 4, under Pumps, for other circulation modes)
If the spa is configured for 24HR circulation, 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.

Utilities – GFCI Test Feature
Used for verifying a proper installation
The GFCI is an important safety device and is required equipment on a hot tub installation.
Your spa may be equipped with a GFCI Protection feature. If your spa has this feature enabled by the manufacturer, the
GFCI Trip Test must occur to allow proper spa function.
Within 1 to 7 days after startup, the spa will trip the GFCI to test it. (The number of days is factory programmed.) The GFCI
must be reset once it has tripped. After passing the GFCI Trip Test, any subsequent GFCI trips will indicate a ground fault or
other unsafe condition and the power to the spa must be shut off until a service person can correct the problem.

Forcing the GFCI Trip Test
The installer can cause the GFCI Trip Test to occur sooner by initiating it using the above menu.
The GFCI should trip within several seconds and the spa should shut down. If it does not, shut down the power and manually verify that a GFCI breaker is installed and that the circuit and spa are wired correctly. Verify the function of the GFCI
with its own test button. Restore power to the spa and repeat the GFCI Trip Test.
Once the GFCI is tripped by the test, reset the GFCI and the spa will operate normally from that point. You can verify a successful test by navigating to the above menu. PASS should appear after a temp button is pressed from the GFCI screen.
Warning:
The end-user must be trained to expect this one-time test to occur and how to
properly reset the GFCI.
If freezing conditions exist, the GFCI should be reset immediately or
spa damage could result.

General Messages
Priming Mode – M019
Each time the spa is powered up, it will enter Priming Mode. The purpose of Priming Mode is to allow the user to run each
pump and manually verify that the pumps are primed (air is purged) and water is flowing. This typically requires observing
the output of each pump separately, and is generally not possible in normal operation. Priming Mode lasts 4 minutes, but
you can exit it earlier by pressing any Temp button. The heater is not allowed to run during Priming Mode.
NOTE: If your spa has a Circ Pump, it will turn on with Jets 1 in Priming Mode. The Circ Pump will run by itself when Priming Mode is exited.
