In a flat application: Use gravel NOT dirt. Using dirt you have to compact
it, this will create unruly pressure on the spa. Gravel gives you about 98%
compaction just by pouring it in the void (overdig). then you can pour your
concrete decking. If a wooden deck is being built there is no real need to
backfill except to keep the ground from around the spa from erodings.

DUAL TEMP FITSPA START-UP
(APPLIES TO BOTH SIDES)
Please read each step of the Start-up section prior to doing the step.
SELECTING A LOCATION
In preparation for installing your new Dual Temp FitSpa, you should ensure that your chosen location meets some minimum guidelines:
1) Place your Dual Temp FitSpa on a surface that is large enough for the
entire Dual Temp FitSpa to fit. Consider the space needed to easily access equipment compartments and circuit breakers. Remember, all electronics must be kept dry.
2) The Dual Temp FitSpa must be on a solid, level foundation. Recommended: 6 inches of reinforced cement slab with wire mesh on compacted
ground that has cured for at least 72 hours. Your warranty will be voided if
the Dual Temp FitSpa is not properly installed. Structural damage due to
an improper foundation is not covered under warranty.
3) To avoid potential water damage to the skirt and frame, your Dual Temp
FitSpa should be placed on a site where it will not be in the way of water
sprinklers or where water can stand.
4) OUTDOOR POOL: Consider building codes, electrical codes, desired
proximity to house, wind and sun exposure, location of trees (falling leaves,
shade), dressing area, landscaping and lighting when selecting a location.
5) INDOOR POOL: Floor surface must have traction to prevent slipping
when wet. A floor drain is optimum. As room humidity will increase because of the pool, provide ample ventilation to prevent dry rot, mildew and
mold. Use materials that will withstand humidity. There may be a need for
cross-ventilation fans and/or dehumidifiers. The pool chemicals may corrode some household metals. Provide ample room if servicing should be
needed. Strong foundational support is vital, particularly if a second-story
site is selected.
6) Ensure the equipment compartment is in a location where it will not
be damaged by water drainage. Cover the equipment compartment with
a heavy screen if rodents are a problem. Damage due to rodents is not
covered under warranty.
7) Have the pool deck installed by a knowledgeable contractor to ensure
proper support.
26
DUAL TEMP FITSPA START-UP
(APPLIES TO BOTH SIDES)
INSPECTION
You will want to inspect your Dual Temp FitSpa, prior to filling it up with water. Look for and remove any debris in the pool tub and in the filter. Verify
that pump plugs are installed on the pumps and the pump unions are tight.
FILLING THE DUAL TEMP FITSPA WITH WATER
NOTE: Do Not fill your Dual Temp FitSpa with hot water straight out
of your water heater or tap. This water may be as hot as 180ºF and
will cause damage to the surface and plumbing of the pool. This will
void your warranty. Level the pool before filling.
1) Prepare to fill the tub by removing all debris.
2) Remove the filters from your pool (see Removing, Installing and Cleaning Filters, page 55.)
3) Place your garden hose in the center of the filter .
4) Fill the tub from the circulation pump line until water level is above
the foot-well.
NOTE: This will purge all the air out of the circulation pump. An air
lock can cause damage to the circulation pump and is not covered
under warranty.
5) Once the water level is filled over the foot-well, you can pull the hose
out of the filter line and continue filling the pool from the filter well.
6) Fill the pool to the bottom of the pillows.
NOTE: Do Not Overfill Your Pool.
7) With the front panel off, verify there are no leaks at the pump union.
NOTE: Pump unions can become loose during shipping. Verify that
there are no leaks during filling of the pool.
8) Reinstall all filters.
TURNING THE POWER ON
Turn the power to the pool on at the main circuit breaker. Verify that your
pool has no error codes. Verify that there is good water circulation in the
pool. The pumps will come on in cycles, for 1 minute each cycle.
27
DUAL TEMP FITSPA START-UP
(APPLIES TO BOTH SIDES)
VERIFYING WATER CIRCULATION
1) Open all the jets.
2) Press the Pump 1 key to turn the pumps on or off.
3) Make sure each seat has water flow.
NOTE: On certain pools there is a diverter valve. Verify where the
diverter valve is located.
TESTING THE GFCI BREAKER
NOTE: The electrical service panel for your pool should be equipped
with a GFCI breaker. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, perform the
following safety test before each use of your pool.
1) Make sure the power is turned on at the electrical service panel.
2) Turn on the GFCI breaker. If the breaker stays on, it is functioning properly.
NOTE: The spa system will automatically trip the GFCI 24 hours after
power up. This is a safety feature and can not be disabled.
DANGER: RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK
If the GFCI breaker fails to operate as described, there is a possibility of
an electrical shock if the Dual Temp FitSpa is used. Shut off the power at
the main electrical service panel until the source of the problem has been
identified and corrected by a licensed electrician or qualified pool technician.
NOTE: When power is turned on, your pool is automatically programmed to start circulating water through the circulation pump.
Each pump will come on consecutively for approximately 1 minute to
automatically purge the system. Adjust your temperature by pressing the up button on your touch pad until the desired temperature
is displayed. This setting will allow your pool to heat to the set temperature.
CAUTION: If water is not noticeably coming from your pool jets during the
automatic purge, turn on the high speed pump. If water is still not coming
from the jets, the pump needs to be manually primed, following the steps
below.
28
DUAL TEMP FIT SPA START-UP
(APPLIES TO BOTH SIDES)
PRIMING THE PUMP
1) Turn off power at electrical service panel.
2) Locate and loosen the top pump union on each pump by turning it counterclockwise one half of one turn.
3) Allow air to escape from fittings. When a steady stream of water flows
from the pump plug, close it by turning it clockwise until tight.
4) Turn on power union at electrical service panel.
5) Check once more to make sure that water is flowing from the jets during
auto purge. If so, continue. If no water is coming from your spa jets, please
call your Artesian dealer for further assistance.
WATER PREPARATION
NOTE: Before putting your new pool into operation, understand
that preparing your new water is an important part of maintenance.
Failure to properly prepare your water can result in substantially decreasing the life of the components and may void your warranty in
severe cases. Your Artesian dealer should have a start-up and maintenance kit available for you when you receive your pool.

MAINTAINING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
DRAINING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
Your spa needs to be drained, cleaned, waxed and refilled about every
six months. More frequent water changes may be necessary if bather
load is heavy. A hose bib has been provided to assist you in draining
your spa.
1) Turn off the power to your pool. If
you fail to turn the power off, vital
components could be damaged. Do not
leave an empty pool exposed for long
periods of time in hot, sunny weather.
2) Pull tab and then turn counter
clockwise till cap is removed.
3) Connect the hose to the hose bib
4) Pull hose bib out to ensure opening
of nozzle/drain plug.
5) Check the garden hose end to see if
water is flowing. If water is not flowing,
check the hose for kinks. Also check to
see if valve is in the full open position.
CAUTION: The chemical content and temperature of the water will
cause damage to certain vegetation. We do not recommend that
you drain your pool onto plants or lawns. If you choose to do this,
please remove your pool cover and allow pool to cool for a minimum of 24 hours with the pool turned off.
PILLOW CARE
Remove and clean the pillows with soapy water and a soft cloth when
needed. Use a vinyl conditioner once a month. Remove pillows when
doing chemical shock treatment.
59
MAINTAINING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
JET CARE
We recommend that you clean your jets when you drain your pool.
However, if you do need to clean your jets in between this can be
accomplished with a full pool.
1) To remove the jet inserts turn
the jet counterclockwise to the
off position until it stops.
Continue to turn the jet past the
stop point to loosen it from the
pool. The insert will now pull out.
2) Soak jet inserts in a mixture of
1 part vinegar to two parts warm
water for 2-3 hours. Periodically
rotate the spinner nozzle to
break up residue in the jets.
4) Rinse the jet inserts under warm
water.
5) To reinstall the jets insert jet into
jet body and turn clockwise until
fully seated then tug to make
sure it is seated properly. You
can then continue to turn clockwise until it stops.
NOTE: A jet with stainless steel escutcheons can be slippery. You
can use a soft cloth or jar-opening pad to assist in removing and
installing the jet.

MAINTAINING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
REMOVING, INSTALLING AND CLEANING FILTERS
These are the steps needed to successfully replace your filters You should
replace your disposable pool filters and clean your non-disposable filters
every four months.
1) Turn off all power to your pool and remove the filter lid by lifting it out
towards you.
2) Turn the filter counterclockwise and remove it from the filter well.
3) Dispose of the used filter.
4) To replace, set screen back into its place turn clockwise to fasten. DO
NOT over-tighten.
5) Place the new filter into position and turn clockwise to fasten. DO NOT
over-tighten.
6) Follow the directions 1) and 2) for the pleated filter cartridge. You then
rinse the filter with a garden hose and soak the filter in a mixture of one
pint of filter cleaner with 2.5 gallons of water for at least 12 hours. The
filter must be completely submerged. You then follow the directions 4) and
5) to replace the filter
WARNING: Power to your pool must be turned off prior to removing your filters. The suction at the filter is extremely strong and can
cause injury if there is no filter. NEVER run your pool without the
filters properly installed. Injury to person and damage to the equipment can occur. Any damage to equipment due to this circumstance
will not be covered under warranty.
WINTERIZING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
It is not recommended that you drain your pool completely during freezing
conditions. We recommend that you leave your pool full of water with the
power on to keep the tub from freezing. If you decide to drain your pool
during freezing conditions, contact your dealer for help. Contact your
dealer before refilling a drained pool in freezing temperature.
WARNING: Damage to your pool caused by freezing is NOT covered
under warranty. Please contact your local Artesian dealer to assist you in
winterizing your pool.

DUAL TEMP FITSPA CABINET CARE
Your pool comes standard with a KingWood, or faux wood, cabinet. This
cabinet requires no maintenance. You may wish to clean the cabinet with
mild soap and water from time to time. If you elected to purchase your
Dual Temp FitSpa with a wood cabinet, this cabinet is stained and sealed
with an oil based acrylic stain. The stain is formulated especially for pool
cabinet and deck applications and is resistant to ultraviolet light damage
caused by sun rays. It is also resistant to fungus and insect damage.
Your dealer carries this type of stain for your convenience, so call your
dealer when you’re ready to re-stain your cabinet. You should re-stain
your wood cabinet at least once a year, or more frequently depending on
your environmental conditions.
1) Gently wash the cabinet with mild soap and water and allow to dry
completely.
2) Moisten a rag with the stain you have purchased from your dealer.
3) Apply the stain on the entire cabinet surface, wiping off any excess
stain as you are applying.
4) Allow stain to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before getting the cabinet
wet.
62
MAINTAINING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
CABINET CARE
NOTE: Do not apply any solid type finish such as shellac or varnish.
After weathering, these types of finishes will crack and/or turn yellow. To
refinish the wood, you will need to completely strip the finish before applying the new one. Use only the stain recommended by your dealer for
refinishing your pool.
CLEANING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA INTERIOR
It is important to clean the interior of your pool every time it is drained to
help preserve the sheen of your pool’s surface. However, it is important
that you do not use any abrasive cleaners or strong chemicals. Your authorized dealer will be able to supply you with the proper solution for your
pool. After cleaning, make sure all residues are removed prior to filling
the pool. This will help prevent sudsing and improper chemical balance.
COVER CARE
Cleaning of your pool cover is an important part of routine maintenance.
Dirt acts as an abrasive to the vinyl topcoat, and can also cause wear
to folds, seams, and stitching. Mildew growing on damp, dirty vinyl will
begin to actually root in the fabric, accelerating failure. Follow this simple
routine for cleaning, prior to application of vinyl protectant:
1) Rinse with cool water using a garden hose.
2) Spray with a gentle, non-foaming cleaner and wipe clean. Never use
laundry detergent, abrasives, alcohols, dish soaps or harsh cleaners.
These can actually remove some of the topcoat and cause premature
vinyl failure.
3) For stubborn dirt, use a non-abrasive sponge.
4) Rinse again thoroughly with water and allow to dry.
5) Repeat monthly, or as needed.
Your vinyl cover is affected by the UV in sunlight. Periodic treatment with
a liquid protectant will extend the life of your pool cover. The wrong kind
of protectant can be more harmful then no protectant at all. Keep any
product away from your pool that is labeled “flammable,” that contains
any type of oil, or that leaves a waxy coating on your cover.
Never stand or sit on the cover and never drag it over abrasive surfaces.
Lift cover only by the handles provided.
63
MAINTAINING YOUR DUAL TEMP FITSPA
CHEMICAL TREATMENT OF WATER
Water from your tap is fine for showers, bathing and drinking. However,
in a contained recirculating system such as in a pool, water must be
treated with chemicals. The main purpose of chemical treatment is to
keep the water sanitary and to maintain a specific balance of the water.
Proper balance ensures that the water will not cause irritation to the users or harm the spa’s components. Chemical treatment does have its
limitations. When water evaporates, chemical residues are left behind.
As the levels of the residues combine with other types of residue, such
as body oil and detergents, your water becomes increasingly difficult
to maintain. Because of this residual effect, at some point it becomes
easier and more cost-effective to drain, clean and refill your pool with
new water. We recommend that the water be changed at least every
six months. At this time you should also clean or replace your filters. If
your pool has a frequent and/or heavy bather load, it may be necessary
to drain and fill your pool more often. Refer to the section titled “Draining
your Dual Temp FitSpa” for instructions (page 52).
WARNING: Pool damage due to improper chemicals is not covered under warranty.
CAUTION: The chemicals used to maintain the pH balance of the water
and to sanitize the water can be dangerous. Always follow these basic
guidelines when handling the chemicals:
1. Always read and follow the directions on the label, unless directed otherwise.
2. Never mix different chemicals.
3. Do not exceed the recommended amounts of chemicals—follow the directions on the label.
4. Keep all chemicals out of the reach of children and pets.
5. Keep containers closed tightly when not in use.
6. Never add water to the chemicals—always add the chemicals to the water as directed.
7. Always store chemicals in a cool, dry place.
NOTE: When adding chmicals run all pumps for one cycle with
cover off. Do this for each chmical added.
