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

GLOSSARY OF SWIM SPA TERMINOLOGY
Your new Master Spa features a variety of jets. All jets, regardless of style return the water to the
swim spa. Air is mixed with the water by using the air controls (if equipped) creating a gentle to
most vigorous massage. Water flow is adjusted by simply turning the outer face of most jets. Your
Master Spa may have a combination of pulsating, rotating, dual pulsating and directional adjustable jets.
1. THERAPY JETS
Located throughout the seats of the swim spa to offer a variety of therapy combinations.
2. NECK JETS (if equipped)
Located above the normal water level to provide massaging action to the back of the neck.
3. SHOULDER JETS (if equipped)
Located above the normal water level to provide massaging action to the shoulders.
4. MASTER BLASTER FOOT THERAPY JET (if equipped)
Large jet with several fixed nozzles located in the bottom of the swim spa near the floor to provide excellent massage to the feet.
5. JET DIVERTER VALVE (if equipped)
Located on the top flange of the swim spa, this large valve physically diverts the flow of water
from one group of jets to another. Be sure that no sand or particles are brought into the swim
spa as they will cause the diverter to seize up. It is best to turn the diverter valve only when the
pump is turned off.
6. WATER FEATURE VALVE (if equipped)
Located on the top flange of the swim spa, this smaller valve adjusts water flow to the waterfalls and/or water features in your swim spa.
NOTE: When the swim spa is not in use, this valve should be turned mostly shut (not completely
shut) to prevent the water features from allowing water to hit the cover while it is closed.
If left mostly open, water may hit the cover and possibly run out of the swim spa causing
water loss.
7. AIR CONTROL VALVE
These smaller valves are located around the top of your swim spa. You may increase or decrease
the force of your jets by opening or closing the air control valves. Each air control valve will typically function 1 to 2 groups or seats of jets in the swim spa. When not in use the air controls
should be kept in the closed position as the air being introduced in to the water can tend to
cool the water and increase the dissipation rate of sanitizer levels.
8. TOPSIDE CONTROL PANEL
You may safely control swim spa functions from inside or outside your swim spa using the
Topside Control Panel. This Panel is used to control the water temperature, pumps, the swim
spa light, automatic filtration cycles and other advanced functions. The digital display will give
you a constant temperature readout and will notify you in case of certain malfunctions. Several
user programmable functions are also available.

components include the pumps, heater, swim spa control system, ozonator (if equipped), and
LED light system (if equipped). Pump and equipment placement may vary by model.
12. FILTER LID
This lid fits over the filter area and weir gate to cover the filters. Remove filter lid to access
filters for maintenance.
13. WEIR GATE
The weir gate is the horizontal door located in front of the filters that helps keep debris
trapped in the filter area
14. SWIM SPA CONTROL SYSTEM
This houses the wiring and electrical components necessary to operate the swim spa.
15. SWIM SPA HEATER
This is an electric heater housed in a stainless steel tube. It is thermostatically controlled and
equipped with high-limit temperature safety shut-off sensors.
16. SLICE VALVES
These valves are used by service personnel to shut off water to the
heating system (heater and pump plumbed to the heater) so that
the swim spa water does not need to be drained if the swim spa
requires service to the heating system (varies by model).
NOTE: Slice valves must be completely open during normal operations.
Slice Valve and Pump Union
17. MAIN THERAPY PUMP
This produces water flow through the main jets in the swim spa. The first pump may be operated on two speeds (varies by model). Low speed (if applicable) will produce efficient water
circulation during filtration, heating of the swim spa water, and gentle jet action. High speed
provides maximum jet action. The main pump is controlled by the “Jets” or “Jets I” button on
the Topside Control Panel.
DO NOT DIVE.

GLOSSARY OF SWIM SPA TERMINOLOGY
18. SECONDARY THERAPY PUMP (if equipped)
This produces water flow through 1 to 2 groups or seats of jets in the swim spa. The second
pump operates similar to the main pump and is controlled by the “Jets II” or “Aux” button
on the Topside Control Panel.
19. THIRD THERAPY PUMP (if equipped)
This produces water flow through 1 to 2 groups or seats of jets in the swim spa. This is controlled by the Jets III button on the Topside Control Panel.
20. CIRCULATION PUMP (if equipped)
This produces water flow through the heater in the swim spa and provides the water flow
necessary to actuate the ozone injector. This energy efficient pump runs 24 hours for efficient
filtration and heating.
21. PUMP UNION
These are used to help relieve possible pump air locks or for service personnel to easily service
the pumps.
22. HEATER UNION
These are used by service personnel to easily service the heater.
23. SWIM SPA LIGHT
The on/off control for the lighting in your swim spa is located on the topside control panel near the
therapy seats.
24. EXERCISE JETS (H2X Swim Spas)
These large jets are grouped at the end of your swim spa to offer water flow for exercising
against. A jet diverter valve may control the flow for these jets.
25. SWIM SPA JUNCTION BOX (MP Swim Spa Only)
The internal junction box for connecting your electrical service(s) to the swim spa is located
behind and accessible by removing access panels “B” and “A”.
26. PROPULSION SYSTEM ACCESS (MP Swim Spa Only)
The propulsion control system of the MP Swim Spas is located behind the skirt panel designated as “E” in the access panels drawing. The propulsion motor, propulsion control pack,
and pulleys for the system are located in this area.
27. PROPULSION SYSTEM CONTROL PANEL (MP Swim Spa Only)
You may safely control the speed of the propulsion system from the inside of your swim spa
by using the buttons on the control panel mounted in the swim area. This control panel is
used to turn the propulsion system on and off and to adjust the intensity of the water flow.
Your swim spa may have one of three propulsion systems depending on the equipment
option: Wave, Wave XP, or Wave XP Pro. All three systems operate in the same manner using
the control panel mounted on the swim end of your swim spa. This control panel may be
safely used from inside or outside of the swim spa to operate the propulsion system.

SITE PREPARATION / GENERAL GUIDELINES
Swim 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 swim spa will determine the amount of space that
is needed in moving the swim spa from curbside to its final installation area. Be sure to consider
and measure side yard dimensions, gates, doors, overall room dimensions and vertical obstructions such as ceilings, roof overhangs, balconies and overhead cables. Any other space limiting
obstacles such as stairs, trees, and shrubs must also be evaluated. Please be sure to contact and
review these site and installation plans with your Master Spas dealer prior to delivery.
2) Surface/Pad Requirements - When your new swim spa is filled with water and bathers, it may
weigh as much as several tons. It is imperative that the base beneath the swim spa can support
the entire weight. The swim 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 swim spa indoors, on a wood deck, roof or balcony; load requirements need
to be evaluated before installation. You should speak with a qualified contractor or your local
building department to confirm that your surface is adequate for supporting a swim spa.
All sides of the swim spa must be accessible for regular maintenance or in the event that service
is needed. Periodical maintenance checks require entry into the equipment bay. When possible, it
is wise planning for the future to leave 3 feet of access to all sides of the swim spa in the event
your swim spa requires maintenance. Your swim 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 swim spa. Listed
below are some additional items to consider when planning your installation.
• How swim spa will complement landscaping
and vice versa
• Getting to swim spa from house and return
• View from inside swim spa and view of swim
spa from inside of home
• Storage for swim spa chemicals
• Proximity to dressing rooms and bathrooms
• Local building codes (if applicable)
• Exposure to sunlight and shading from trees
• Power cable
• Privacy
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR INSTALLATION
Installing your swim spa indoors creates an entirely different set of considerations.
• Work with your Master Spas dealer and
contractor to insure all local building, electrical and plumbing codes are met
• A ventilation fan may be necessary due
to high humidity created by your swim spa
• Plan for a floor drain to drain off excess water
and for draining and cleaning your swim spa
DO NOT DIVE.
• Finished material in your swim spa room
should also be capable of withstanding
increased humidity

SITE PREPARATION / GENERAL GUIDELINES
GUIDELINES FOR PARTIALLY OR FULLY RECESSED INSTALLATION
Swim Spas manufactured by Master Spas, Inc. are designed to be installed in a variety of settings.
One of which is installing below grade. Should a swim spa be installed below the level of the
site drainage system (below grade), a system for preventing water collecting and pooling must be
designed based on the requirements of the local authority having jurisdiction. The drainage system
must be designed based on things such as rainfall, water runoff, splashing, draining the swim spa,
etc. that could potentially feed the below grade area with water. Where located in designated
floodways, additional attention to maximum water load entering the area below grade must be
addressed to prevent water from accumulating below grade at all times. It is generally recommended that the swim spa be installed above grade because the swim spa is not designed to be
submerged in water. When a proper drainage system is designed and proper ventilation is planned
based on the characteristics of the site, installing the swim spa below grade is an accepted method
of installation.
• The unit is self-supporting when placed on a surface designed to support the full load of the
swim spa (see Surface/Pad Requirements). Do not backfill with sand, gravel, or earth. Doing so
will void the warranty.
• Plan for complete drainage so that water accumulation drains away from the swim spa perimeter
and standing water never reaches the electrical equipment.
• Plan for appropriate ventilation to remove moisture accumulation and prevent equipment
overheat.
• Provide a minimum of 3 feet service area around the perimeter of the unit. Site access issues are
not covered by the product warranty.
• The unit is not designed to be submerged in water. Water entering the equipment area creates
many hazards and resulting damage will not be covered by the product warranty.
• Make sure that the surroundings do not create any additional hazards.
• Surfaces placed around the unit should also be evaluated for walking/slipping hazards from
standing water. Proper drainage is vital to the installation of a below grade installation.
• Check all building, electrical, and plumbing codes with the authority having jurisdiction to ensure
that your installation is in compliance with all local codes.
• Additional consideration needs to be made when installing unit in designed floodways.
• Verify that site specific drainage systems such as down spouts are not going to feed the area
below grade.
• Below grade drainage system needs to be evaluated based on area specific rainfall. One size
does not fit all so an analysis by a qualified, local engineer to ensure proper drainage of all sources of water is a must when installing below grade.
DO NOT DIVE.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1.
2.
Put swim spa in final position that allows for access to equipment and swim spa components.
3.
Be sure all pump and heater unions are secure. Each pump has
2 unions and the heater has 2 unions. A newly delivered swim
spa may have loose unions caused in transporting the swim
spa. Check that all slice valves are open, in the up position. The
slice valves may become closed during transportation of the
swim spa.
Remove skirt panels to access the electrical connections inside the swim spa. The junction box
(MP Swim Spas Only), swim spa control system(s) and majority of the equipment in your swim
spa can be accessed by removing access panels “A” and “B”.

Fill the swim spa to the “minimum safe water level” sticker. This sticker is typically located
on the shell of the swim spa near the filter area. On the Momentum swim spa model with a
clear acrylic divider, it is recommended that the swim side be filled first and then the spa side.
When draining the swim spa always drain the spa side before draining the swim side.
5.
Turn on power to the swim spa. If your swim
spa is equipped with two electrical supplies,
make sure that they are both turned on. The
Slice Valve
swim spa will go through its priming mode.
This lasts approximately 5 minutes. The purAirlock
pose of the priming mode is to help insure
that the jet pumps have been primed with
water and are ready to operate. It may be necessary in some instances to bleed air from the
jet pumps in your swim spa, if after the priming mode the swim spa pumps run but do not
move water the pump may have an air lock.
Pump Union
Due to the nature of water flow and hydro-therapy pumps, please be advised that air locking
of pumps may occur. Master Spas, Inc. has taken measures to reduce the possibility of this,
but it still may occur, especially after filling the swim spa. This is not a service covered by the
warranty and service charges may apply.
To relieve an airlock situation, loosen the pump union on the discharge of the pump. This
pump union is indicated by an arrow in the picture above. Water should leak out of the union
once the air has been removed. Tighten the union and test the pump for proper operation.
Repeat this process if needed.
NOTE: Upon power up, the propulsion system may mix water with air for up to several minutes until all of the air is pulled from the propulsion chamber. The propulsion system may be
noisy during this time. This is normal.
6.
7.
Be sure the jets in your swim spa are open.
8.
Your swim spa water will heat approximately 1°F (0.5°C) per hour with the cover closed, on
average. Times may vary.
Adjust water chemistry according to the instructions provided in the “Water Maintenance”
section.

THE ADVANTAGES OF EcoPur® Charge
The EcoPur® Charge is made from Master Spa’s patented filtration fabric. This fabric is wound
tightly into a nautilus master core, creating a catalytic cell. The nautilus fabric cell is encased by a
unique “spring core” that allows for maximum flow and water “charging”. As water
comes in contact with the EcoPur® Charge Master Core, a chemical reaction causes zinc and copper hydroxides to form in controlled amounts. Like Mother Nature, when controlled releases of
copper and zinc oxides are carried into the filtered water, they kill bacteria and provide hostile
conditions for algae and fungal growth. Using EcoPur® Charge helps reduce the amount of chemicals needed, therefore safeguarding the hot tub’s plumbing and equipment because pipes are protected against the corrosive effects of chlorine. EcoPur® Charge Master Core Technology, another
exclusive design by Master Spas.

WATER CHEMISTRY TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Before jumping into 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 swim 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.
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 100 to 120 ppm being the best range for swim
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. The pH in swim spas should
be ideally maintained between 7.4 to 7.6. It should never be below 7.2 or above 7.8. 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 /oxidizer (potassium monoperoxysulfate or potassium monopersulfate) to burn off the chloramines or bromamines. A non-chlorine /oxidizer acts
by releasing oxygen in the water, which serves the same function as chlorine. The advantage
to using non-chlorine /oxidizer, is you can enter the water within 15 minutes after application.
Using chlorine, you must wait until the total chlorine reading is below 5 ppm. One thing to
remember, a non-chlorine /oxidizer 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 swim 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 water capacity, pump and filter size and, of course, bather load. Spare
filter cartridges should be kept on hand to make it easy to frequently clean the cartridge
without the need for a long shut down. This will also allow the cartridge to dry out between
usages, which will increase the cartridge life span as much as twice. Replace the cartridge
when the pleats begin to deteriorate. Cartridge cleaning should be done a minimum of once
a month. More often with a heavy bather load.
DO NOT DIVE.

18
WATER CHEMISTRY TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW
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 swim spa use. Sodium dichlor which is granular, fast
dissolving and pH neutral chlorine.
2. Chlorine is an immediate sanitizer and will be added as needed to maintain free chlorine levels between 2.0 to 4.0 ppm..
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. Bromine levels should be maintained between 2.0 to 4.0
ppm.
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 swim spa surface. Water that is too low (below 150 ppm) may also
shorten the life of metal components on the swim spa.
NOTE: Always leave swim spa cover open for 15 minutes after adding chemicals to prevent
the off gas from damaging your swim spa cover, swim spa pillows, stainless steel hardware
and other critical parts.
DO NOT DIVE.

WHY ARE CHEMICALS IMPORTANT IN A SWIM 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 swim 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 other airborne contaminants are introduced into the swim spa.
4.
Environment:
The environment surrounding the swim 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 swim spa.
5.
Bathers:
As the swim spa is used, bathers introduce contaminants to the water. Increased bather
load, length of use and frequency will increase the amounts of contaminants added in to the
water.
Remember:
The maintenance routines set forth in this manual may need to be adjusted depending on bather
load and how much the swim spa is being used.

WATER MAINTENANCE – START-UP
Step 1:
Your swim 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 swim spa.
Step 2:
During the initial filling of the swim spa, add a sequestering agent to combat suspended minerals in the water. The agents are sold under many different names such as
Mineral Clear, or Metal Protect. Allow water to circulate and filter for at least 30 minutes (or per bottle recommendations) before adding any other chemicals.
Step 3:
Test water for pH, total Alkalinity, and Calcium hardness. The pH should be 7.4 - 7.6
and the total Alkalinity 100 - 120 ppm. Calcium hardness levels should be maintained
between 150 and 250 ppm (part per million).
Step 4:
Adjust pH and total Alkalinity (TA) utilizing the directions on the chemical bottles.
Wait 15 minutes, test and adjust if necessary.
Step 5:
It may be necessary to retest and add additional chemicals to get to the proper levels
in Step 3.
Step 6:
Add concentrated chlorinating granules* (sodium Dichlor-s-triazinetreone) to reach a
Free Chlorine level of 5 to 8 ppm on initial start up to begin sanitizing the swim spa
water. Bathers should not enter the swim spa until the chlorine levels drop below 5.0
ppm. Always refer to the chemical manufactures dosage recommendations listed on
the container. It is important not to add the chlorinating granules until the pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness have been adjusted to their proper levels.
*SPECIAL NOTE:
We recommend a minimum level of 2.0 ppm residual free chlorine be maintained in swim spa water. Always
refer to the chemical manufacturer’s dosage recommendations listed on the container.
When adding chlorine or non-chlorine shock/oxidizer always broadcast across the water while the pumps are
running.
The quantities of sanitizer and oxidizer shown in this manual are for 500 gallons and may have to be adjusted
depending on the actual amount of water that your swim spa holds. See the specifications section of this manual
for the correct gallons of your swim spa.
The concentration of active ingredients in swim spa chemicals varies by manufacturer. The amounts of sanitizer
suggested in this manual are based on swim spa chemicals that have the active ingredient percentages listed
below:
Chlorine
Non-Chlorine Shock/ Oxidizer
Active ingredient:
Active ingredient:

WATER MAINTENANCE – SCHEDULE
BEFORE EACH USE
Check swim spa water with a test strip for proper sanitation levels and adjust accordingly to the
proper levels. Free chlorine level should be 2.0 - 4.0 ppm. Appropriate levels should be present
before use of the swim spa. Bathers should not enter the swim spa if total chlorine levels are above
5.0 ppm or if free chlorine levels are below 2.0 ppm.
ONCE A WEEK
Add non-chlorine shock/oxidizer* or chlorine* to swim spa to help maintain the water quality.
3 TIMES A WEEK
Test water using chemical test strips. Adjust sanitizer, pH and Alkalinity accordingly. The total alkalinity should be between 100 - 120 ppm and the PH should be between 7.4 - 7.6. If free chlorine
level measures less than total chlorine level, additional non-chlorine shock/oxidizer* treatment is
necessary.
ONCE A MONTH
Soak your regular filter elements overnight in a container with swim spa Filter Cleaner and then
rinse with clean water. For best results, allow the filter to dry before re-inserting. (The Eco Pur™
mineral element should never be cleaned in a filter cleaner. Just rinse with water.) 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. See the “clean your filter elements” in the maintenance section of this manual for more
information.
EVERY 180 DAYS
Drain and refill your swim spa with fresh water, install a new Eco Pur™ filter element, clean the
regular filter, and repeat start up procedure. The regular filter should be replaced at least once
every year.
AFTER EACH USE
Add non-chlorine shock/oxidizer* or chlorine* to the swim spa water.
*SPECIAL NOTE:
We recommend a minimum level of 2.0 ppm residual free chlorine be maintained in swim spa water. Always
refer to the chemical manufacturer’s dosage recommendations listed on the container.
When adding chlorine or non-chlorine shock/oxidizer always broadcast across the water while the pumps are

WATER MAINTENANCE – SCHEDULE
AS NEEDED
If water looks hazy, check PH and Total Alkilinity, and treat with chlorine*. Always refer to the
chemical manufactures dosage recommendations listed on the container. Free chlorine levels
should be maintained between 2.0 - 4.0 ppm.
These are general recommendations for water maintenance that may vary by usage and 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 SWIM SPA CHEMICALS
Do not use chemicals designed for use in swimming pools. Swim spa chemicals are the same as
spa chemicals.
With a swim 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 swim 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 swim spas should be used. Always refer to the chemical manufactures
dosage recommendations listed on the container.
*SPECIAL NOTE:
We recommend a minimum level of 2.0 ppm residual free chlorine be maintained in swim spa water. Always
refer to the chemical manufacturer’s dosage recommendations listed on the container.

SWIM SPA TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
Note: For wiring outside of U.S. and Canada, GFCI may be referred to as a RCD (residual current device).
Be sure all local electrical codes are followed.
NOTHING ON THE SWIM SPA OPERATES
1. Check the control panel display for any messages. If there is a message, refer to the diagnostic section on that model swim spa. There, you will find the meaning of the message and what action is
to be taken.
2. If there is no message on the control panel, check, and reset the GFCI breaker.
The swim spa GFCI breaker or disconnect should be located
in a weather proof box close to the swim spa.
If the swim 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.
B. Pump may need to be primed.
C. Check that the air controls are open.
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.
4. Check for dirty filters. Clean if necessary.
DO NOT DIVE.

Regular Maintenance Procedures
Note: These are maintenance procedures are the responsibility of the swim spa owner to perform.
These procedures are not covered by the swim spa warranty.
CLEANING JETS
The majority of jets in your swim 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 swim 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. It may be necessary to clean grit and deposits from the white jet body (mounted
in the swim spa shell) by using a small bristled brush.
CLEANING DIVERTER VALVES
Mineral deposits, grit and sand may get into the internal parts of the diverter valves over time. The
diverter valves may become difficult to turn or not turn at all.
Remove the handle from the top of diverter valve by gently prying up on both sides of the handle
assembly at the same time.
Turn the cap piece counter clockwise. It may be necessary to put a clean towel 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 swim spa.
DRAINING YOUR SWIM SPA
Due to the physical size of the swim spa, we recommend draining your swim spa with a submersible sump pump. Draining your swim spa with a conventional swim spa drain is not a reasonable
option. When draining the Momentum 80 swim spa always drain the water from the spa side
before draining the swim side.
DO NOT DIVE.
100
25
REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Note: These are maintenance procedures are the responsibility of the swim spa owner to perform.
These procedures are not covered by the swim spa warranty.
CARE OF YOUR SWIM SPA COVER
Always cover your swim spa when not in use with an approved insulating swim spa cover by Master
Spas. This will greatly reduce energy consumption and will cause swim 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 swim spa to sit uncovered in direct sunlight. This may cause damage to exposed surfaces of swim spa and possible discoloration of swim spa fittings.
• Periodically hose off both sides of swim 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 min. after adding chemicals to prevent off gas damage.
NOTE: If your swim spa is going to be left empty for prolonged periods, do not replace cover directly
on surface of swim spa. Place 2”-3” blocks between cover and swim spa. This allows for adequate ventilation of cover and swim spa.
NOTE: The cover warranty is not part of the limited warranty provided with the swim spa. It is provided through the cover manufacturer and may not be through Master Spas. Check the tags
and labeling on your cover to verify manufacturer and refer to the manufacturer’s care, maintenance and warranty information. Your dealer can help provide you with these details.
NOTE: Always turn water feature valve down so that the water features do not hit the cover when
the cover is closed.
CARE OF YOUR SWIM SPA CABINET
The swim spa cabinet is made from a UV resistant Polymer material. The cabinet requires only periodic cleaning with a stream of water from a garden hose.
FILTER CLEANING
NOTE: Never operate the swim spa without the filters installed. Damage to the pumps and other
components could result from operation without filters installed.
1. Turn power off to the swim spa.
2. Remove any large or floating debris from the filter area. For the H2X Therapool models, remove
filter lid located on top of filter weir to access filters and skip to step 6.
3. Allow the weir door to fall back towards the filters in order to remove the filter housing.
4. Lift up on the plastic housing and the entire housing will pop out.
NOTE: When lifting the housing, be careful not to lift too far, as you could break the floating weir
door. Damage to weir door is not warranted.
5. Pull the plastic skimmer plate out from the filter basket in order to gain access to the filters.
6. Unscrew the filter cartridges and remove for cleaning.
7. The filters should be rinsed off and the non-Eco-Pur filter(s) (blue filter) should be soaked in a cartridge cleaner. Follow applicable cartridge cleaner instructions.
8. Re-install filters and replace weir housing or filter lid.
NOTE: Do not soak the Eco-Pur filter in a filter cartridge cleaner. Rinse off only.
NOTE: Eco-Pur filters should be replaced every 6 months. Non Eco-Pur filters should be replaced
every 12 months or as necessary depending on water quality, filter maintenance and bather
load.
DO NOT DIVE.

26
REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Note: These are maintenance procedures are the responsibility of the swim spa owner to perform.
These procedures are not covered by the swim spa warranty.
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 swim 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.
CARE OF YOUR OZONE SYSTEM:
The ozone hose and check valve connecting between the ozone generator and ozone injector
should be inspected and/or replaced, if necessary, every 12 months. Depending on conditions of
the air which is being brought in to the ozone generator, the ozone hose and check valve can
wear more rapidly. This regular maintenance is not covered under the swim spa warranty. Your
Master Spas Dealer or Service Center can be contacted to schedule this maintenance.
DO NOT DIVE.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Note: These are maintenance procedures are the responsibility of the swim spa owner to perform.
These procedures are not covered by the swim spa warranty.
STAINLESS STEEL
Master Spas uses stainless steel in a number of our swim spas. Its lasting beauty and resistance to
corrosion make it an excellent material for handrails and jets faces.
With the proper care it will keep its luster for many years. All stainless steel can corrode given the
right circumstances so we have provided a guide to help you keep the stainless components in
your swim spa looking nice.
Stainless steel derives its ability to resist corrosion by forming a very thin transparent coating on the
surface when exposed to oxygen. This coating can be damaged by abrasive materials such as steel
wool, sand paper, and other cleaning materials that are abrasive. Chlorine salts, sulfides, or other
rusting metals can also erode this thin coating exposing the metal to corrosion.
The best defense to combat corrosion on stainless steel components in your swim spa is make sure
that it is kept clean and free of any chemical build up.
Always:
• Clean frequently with clear clean water.
• Remove any rust spots as soon as they appear with vinegar or a brass, silver, or chrome cleaner.
• Use a good car cleaning wax for extra protection.
• Leave cover removed for at least 15 minutes after adding chemicals to the swim spa water.
Never:
• Clean with mineral acids or bleaches.
• Clean with steel wool or any other abrasive material.
• Leave in contact with iron, steel any other metals.
• Close the cover immediately after adding chemicals to the water.
NOTE: Failure to take proper care of the stainless steel components could result with
them rusting. Rusting is not covered by the warranty.
NOTE: Do not cover the swim spa for 15 minutes after adding chemicals as the off gas
can cause unwarranted damage. Larger dosages can require longer lengths of time
to off gas. It is recommended to check swim spa water more frequently to allow
small dosages be added as necessary versus large dosages being added less often.
DO NOT DIVE.

Regular Maintenance Procedures
Note: These are maintenance procedures are the responsibility of the swim spa owner to perform.
These procedures are not covered by the swim spa warranty.
Your swim spa requires periodic draining and cleaning to ensure a safe, healthy environment. It is
recommended that you clean your swim spa at least every 180 days. Heavy bather load will require
cleaning it more often.
DRAIN YOUR SWIM SPA
CARE & CLEANING OF SWIM SPA SURFACE
• With a soft cloth, wipe down the swim spa surface with a non-abrasive swim spa surface cleaner
that may be purchased through your local dealer. Do not use paper towels. Be sure to rinse residue from swim spa surface.
• If your swim spa has developed an oily or chalky residue at the waterline it may require special
treatment. Consult your dealer.
• A submersible pump and hose should be used for draining.
• For the Momentum swim spa, drain the swim spa end first and then the swim end.
Always use an approved insulating swim spa cover by Master Spas to cover your swim spa when
not in use, especially in outdoor installations where the swim spa is exposed to weather conditions
and sun. Constant, prolonged exposure and use of unapproved or non-insulating swim spa cover
can result in damage to swim spa surface which would not be warranted.
CLEAN THE ACRYLIC DIVIDER (Momentum)
• The surface should be first flushed with clean water to remove loose abrasive particles. The clear
acrylic sheet should then be gently sponged with a mild detergent/water solution and finally
rinsed with clean water. Care must be taken not to leave any of the soap residue in the swim spa
as it could cause the swim spa water to foam during operation.
• Drying can be done with a clean soft cotton towel. Avoid hard rough cloths or paper towels
since they can put fine scratches on the acrylic surface.
• Do not use any aggressive solvents (lacquer thinner, gasoline, acetone and etc.) on the clear
acrylic sheet. These products can cause damage to the sheet that may not be visible until days or
weeks later.
• Window glass cleaning compounds are not recommended. Cleaning products that contain any
type of abrasive material should not be used.
REFILL YOUR SWIM SPA
• When filling the Momentum swim spa always fill the swim side of the unit before filling the spa
side.
• Fill the swim 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.

SWIM SPA NOT HEATING
If the swim spas heater has failed, the majority of the time it will trip the GFCI breaker. If the swim
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 swim 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 the “heat mode” that the swim spa is set in. The swim spa should be set in the standard
mode or ready mode depending on the model.
5. Check the control panel for light indicator. Wait a reasonable amount of time (approximately 1
hour) to see if the water temperature is rising.
6. Check to make sure that the pump is primed and all slice valves are open.
7. Reset power to the swim spa at GFCI breaker.
8. If swim 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 swim spa or by an electrical
problem. Electrical problems include but are not limited to, a faulty GFCI breaker, swim spa component, power fluctuations, or improper wiring. If this is a new electrical service and GFCI installation, an instantly tripping GFCI may likely be caused by improper wiring of the load neutral from
the GFCI to the swim spa. It may be necessary to contact an electrician if your dealer recommends

Winterizing & Storing Your SWIM Spa
Your swim spa is designed to be used year round in any type of climate.
* However, if you decide you don’t want to use your swim spa in the winter, you must drain it
and follow the winterizing steps listed below:
1.
Due to the physical size of the swim spa, we recommend draining your swim spa with
a submersable sump pump. Draining your swim spa with a conventional swim spa drain
is not a reasonable option.
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 swim spa. A non-toxic, RV water line
type antifreeze can be used and added to jets in each seat around your swim spa to help prevent freeze damage from occurring. Be sure to thoroughly flush the system before startup.
7.
After this is completed, use the shop vac to remove any standing water in the swim spa and
in the equipment area.
8.
Clean the swim spa with a soft cloth and a non-abrasive swim spa surface cleaner.
9.
Replace access panels.
10. Cover swim spa to prevent water from entering the swim spa.
* If you decide to winterize your swim spa, we recommend that you periodically check the swim
spa throughout the winter to assure water is not entering the swim spa through or around the
swim spa cover.
* Disclaimer: Master Spas does not recommend winterizing your swim spa. If you choose to do so,
any damage that may result is not covered under the swim spa warranty.
STORING YOUR SWIM SPA
The swim spa shell should never be left unprotected and uninsulated while being stored. Clear
plastic wrap or similar material should never be used to cover/protect the swim spa.
Prolonged, direct sun heat can damage the surfaces of the swim spa along with any components
on the swim spas surface. Always keep the swim spa covered and protected with an insulating
swim spa cover. Resulting damage such as cracking in the shell surface or warped or discolored
components on the swim spa would not be warranted.
An empty swim spa should never be exposed to temperatures below 0°F (-18°C) after delivery as
extreme cold can cause shell damage. This includes storage and draining (winterizing). If your swim
spa will be exposed to these temperatures, keep the unit filled and running. If you do not plan to
use your swim spa, you can set the swim spa to the lowest temperature setting allowed by the
control system.
Failure to adhere to these guidelines will void the warranty.

Note: Electrical requirements by model is shown in Model Specifications. Only electrical configurations pertaining to the models referenced in this manual are shown.
ELECTRICAL 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 swim 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 electrical service
for your swim 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. A disconnect must be installed and be readily accessible to the swim spa occupants, but installed
at least five feet from the swim spa. A Ground-Fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) must be
used to comply with section 680-42 of the National Electric 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. The MP Swim
Spas are equipped from the factory with a pre-installed 50A internal GFCI breaker and will
not need to have one installed.
The 50A non-GFCI protected service must be 240 volt, 3 wire plus ground (#6 AWG copper with minimum #8 AWG copper ground).
Route service in to the swim spa junction box located inside the swim spa behind skirt
access panel “B” (see Glossary of Swim Spa Terminology). Refer to wiring schematic inside
swim spa junction box for proper power connections to terminals. The MP Swim Spas are
equipped from the factory with a pre-installed 50A GFCI breaker to power the propulsion
system and spa side equipment. The 50A non-GFCI protected service shall be connected
to the appropriate terminals within the swim spa junction box which feed the internal 50A
GFCI. This must be a “dedicated” service. The term “dedicated” means the electrical circuit
for the swim spa is not being used for any other electrical items (patio lights, appliances,
garage circuits, etc.). If the swim 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.

pump icons appear on the priming mode screen. The system will automatically begin normal heating and filtering
at the end of the priming mode, which lasts 4-5 minutes.
During the priming mode, the heater is disabled to allow
the priming process to be completed without the possibility of energizing the heater under low-flow or no-flow
conditions. Nothing comes on automatically, but the
pump(s) can be activated by touching the “Jet” buttons.
Manually exit Priming Mode by touching the “Back” Button.
PRIMING THE PUMPS
As soon as the Priming Mode screen appears on the panel, touch the “Jets 1” button once to
start Pump 1 in low-speed and then again to switch to high-speed. Also, touch 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 swim 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, the pump(s) will need relieved of an air lock. See Installation Instructions for information on bleeding air from a pump to relieve an air lock. If you need further assistance, your
swim spa dealer can be contacted. Regular maintenance procedures would not be covered under
the swim spa warranty.
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 touching 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.

Swim spa BEHAVIOR
PUMPS
On the Spa Screen, touch 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.
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. 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. If the temperature sensors detect a drop to below 44°F/6.7°C
within the heater, the pump will automatically activate to provide freeze protection. The equipment stays on until 4 minutes after the sensors detect that the swim spa temperature has risen to
45°F/7.2°C or higher.
CLEAN-UP CYCLE (OPTIONAL)
When a pump is turned on by a button touch, a clean-up cycle begins 30 minutes after the pump
is turned off or times out. The pump and the ozone generator will run for 30 minutes or more,
depending on the system.
DO NOT DIVE.

same manner as Filter Cycle 1.
It is possible to overlap Filter Cycle 1 and Filter Cycle 2, which will shorten overall filtration by the
overlap amount.
PURGE CYCLES
In order to maintain sanitary conditions, as well as protect against freezing, the system will purge
water from the respective plumbing by running briefly at the beginning of each filter cycle.
If the Filter Cycle 1 duration is set for 24 hours, enabling Filter Cycle 2 will initiate a purge when
Filter Cycle 2 is programmed to begin.

Propulsion System Controls
THE PROPULSION SYSTEM
The unique belt-driven propulsion system provides the most consistent flow of water to swim and
exercise against. This propulsion system is controlled by the revolutionary Swim Number(TM)
System. Along with this, your MP Swim Spa is equipped with a WiFi module which allows control of the system through our *Swim Number App (SNAPP). *SNAPP is available for iPad on the
Apple store and allows you to build your own personal workouts.
The easy to operate propulsion control panel allows you not only to control the speed of the
water flow but also to select programmed Smart Workouts.
*See Swim Number App (SNAPP) Instruction Manual for further information.
OPTIONAL EXERCISE EQUIPMENT ALL
The optional exercise equipment package makes it easy to exercise in your own back yard. There
are shell mounted clips that are used to fasten the rowing equipment to the swim spa. These clips
are located along the sides of your swim spa next to the grab rails that are placed around the
perimeter of the swim area. Also available are ankle fins and exercise bells that will allow you to
do resistance training. See your Master Spas dealer for details.
NOTE: DO NOT LEAVE EXERCISE EQUIPMENT INSIDE THE SWIM SPA WHEN NOT IN USE. DO NOT
LEAVE EXERCISE EQUIPMENT OUTSIDE EXPOSED TO ULTRA VIOLET RAYS. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE
ABOVE GUIDELINES COULD RESULT IN INJURY.

the white ceramic end of the UV Lamp and pull until it is fully removed. IF YOU ARE NOT
REPLACING THE LAMP, DO NOT TOUCH THE UV LAMP GLASS WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. The
oils on your hands can cause hot spots on the lamp and shorten its life. If oil from your fingers is left on the lamp glass, clean it off with a soft towel and rubbing alcohol. If you are
removing an old lamp for replacement, handle the lamp carefully and dispose properly (see

ENVIRONMENTAL NOTICE: UV Lamp CONTAINS MERCURY. Manage in accordance with disposal
laws. See: www.lamprecycle.org
c. UV Reactor Service and Maintenance
The UV Lamp is housed in a Quartz Tube. If the Quartz Tube becomes dirty, its ability to transmit
rays from the UV Lamp will be diminished and decrease system performance. The Quartz Tube
should be removed from the UV Reactor at least once a year or during a routine swim spa water
change for inspection and cleaning if necessary.
d. Quartz Tube Removal and Cleaning
CAUTION: Wear proper eye and skin protection for servicing glass components.
i.
Make sure the swim spa is shut down and the UV Lamp and Quartz Tube have cooled
before performing maintenance on the Quartz Tube. If you have installed Isolation Valves,
close them before servicing. If you do not have Isolation Valves, the swim spa must be
drained below where the Spa Solar Eclipse is mounted.
ii.
Remove the Upper Enclosure Assembly and UV Lamp as described in Section A and set aside
in a safe place.
iii. Remove the two Retainer Screws and Retainer Washer from the top of the Lamp Retainer
and slowly pull the Lamp Retainer out of the UV Chamber Cap.
CAUTION: If there is any water remaining in the plumbing, it will start to leak after the Lamp
Retainer is removed.
iv. Grasp the inside of the Quartz Tube and pull it out of the housing. Make sure the Sealing
Ring does not get lost during Quartz Tube removal.
v.
Inspect the Sealing Ring for nicks or hardness and replace if necessary.
vii. Clean the Quartz Tube exterior with a mild solution of muriatic acid and water in a ratio
of four parts water to one part acid (4:1). DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS as they can
scratch the high quality quartz glass.
CAUTION: Follow the directions for safe use and handling of muriatic acid on the acid bottle label.
Never add water to acid. Always add acid to water.
vii. After cleaning the Quartz Tube, wash it off with water and wipe dry with a soft towel. Inspect
the Quartz Tube for cracks and replace if cracks are found.
viii. Make sure the inside of the Quartz Tube is dry before replacing the UV Lamp(s).
