INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of an advanced SpaNETTM spa control system. Your spa controller
incorporates the latest advancements in electronics offering you, the user, a wider range of features,
superior design, a user-friendly interface and greater system reliability. Through innovative design the
SpaNETTM controllers offer features such as LED colour effects spa lighting, adjustable speed blower control,
optical water sensing, digital sleep timers and power saving software making them some of the most
advanced spa controllers in their class.
This User Manual provides detailed information on the operation of your new SpaNETTM spa control. Please
read it carefully to familiarise yourself with correct operating procedures. Whilst the spa control does not
require any regular servicing it is imperative that you regularly check and maintain your spa pool’s water
chemistry and regularly clean and replace your filter cartridges.
WATER CHEMISTRY MAINTENANCE
It is your responsibility to regularly check and maintain the chemical water balance of the spa pool to ensure
it remains within reasonable pH (acid/alkaline) limits => (7.4 - 7.6 pH). Unbalanced water chemistry greatly
accelerates corrosion and may lead to early product or component failure. Product or component failures
caused as a result of poor water chemistry maintenance will NOT be covered by the SpaNETTM
Product Warranty.
We recommend you carry out a daily water chemistry test to correctly maintain the pH balance within
reasonable limits and maintain your spa water as detailed in “Section 5 - Spa Pool Maintenance” of this user
manual.

LED INDICATOR LIGHTS
The SpaNETTM topside panels operate all possible spa functions on your spa. All function buttons (ie Pumps,
Light, and Blower buttons) are backlit with a green LED light to clearly indicate whether the accessory /
function is ON or OFF. The green LED will light the button when the function is ON. In addition the topside
panels have four red LED indicator lights that help advise the user the current status of the spa. These red
LED indicators are located on the left hand side of the topside panels and are as follows:
AUTOMATIC MODE
The AUTO LED indicator turns ON when the filtration pump is in automatic mode. In automatic mode the
filtration pump will turn on / off as required to satisfy heating and filtration requirements. If the filtration pump
is manually turned on or off the AUTO LED indicator turns OFF. The AUTO LED indicator will turn back ON
when the filtration pump is put back into AUTO mode manually or once the manual use inactivity time-out
periods have elapsed. NOTE: In some pump configurations the AUTO LED indicator will always be ON, as
the filtration pump is automatically controlled and cannot be adjusted.
HEATER
The Heater LED indicator turns ON when the heater element is active. The heater is automatically controlled,
it will turn ON and OFF as required (in conjunction with the filtration pump) to maintain the set water
temperature. If the filtration pump is manually turned OFF the heater will NOT operate. NOTE: In some
configurations if multiple accessories (pumps & blower) are turned ON the heater may load shed and turn
OFF (even if heating is required) to keep the system within its maximum power load.
OZONE / UV
The Ozone LED indicator turns ON when the ozonator / UV sanitiser is active. The ozonator / UV is
automatically controlled - it will turn ON and OFF as required as determined by manufacturer configuration.
The ozonator / UV will only operate when the filtration pump is running. NOTE: This indicator LED will still
turn on and off WITHOUT an ozonator / UV installed.
SLEEP CYCLE
The Sleep Cycle LED indicator turns ON when the spa control is within a designated sleep cycle (if
programmed). During a sleep cycle all automatic system operation will stop so that the spa is silent – i.e.
filtration and heating will not occur.
1.3
AUTOMATIC HEATING & FILTRATION
SpaNETTM spa controls have been designed with simplicity in mind. Their intelligent software constantly
monitors the spa water, automatically controlling the heater and filtration pump to ensure the desired set
water temperature is maintained and required level of daily filtration achieved.
With set-and-forget technology, the spa user simply selects their desired water temperature
(Between 5oC and 40oC. Default = 38oC) and thereafter the spa control will automatically heat to and
maintain that selected water temperature*. This is called demand heating - the filtration pump and heater will
be activated as required to maintain the set water temperature. The time spent heating the pool and running
the pump under normal operation will be taken into account and where required the pump will run for
additional periods at the end of each hour to maintain the minimum level of daily filtration as set by the user.
Dependant on the amount of normal spa use, set water temperature, minimum hours of filtration per day,
climatic conditions and season being experienced, the spa control will engage the heater and / or filtration
pump for differing periods of time, at differing times of day.
4
The advanced software constantly monitors and recalculates after each heating / filtration cycle to ensure the
correct daily filtration time is achieved and desired set water temperature is maintained.
* Notes on Automatic Heating:
1.
If the standard in-heater temperature sensor is used (i.e. no optional in-pool temperature sensor fitted) the
heater works off a 2oC hysteresis (thermostat). This means that the heater will firstly heat the water up to the
selected set temperature point. Thereafter the heater will not be re-activated until the water temperature falls by
at least 2oC (i.e. if the set temp = 38oC, the heater will not re-activate until the water temperature drops to 36oC).
o
Therefore if the spa user selects a set temperature point of 38 C the actual water temperature will be anywhere
o
o
between 36 C - 38 C depending on when the user checks the temperature.
2.
o
If the optional in-pool temperature sensor is used the heater works off a 0.5 C hysteresis (thermostat). This
means that the heater will firstly heat the water up to the selected set temperature point. Thereafter the heater
will not be re-activated until the water temperature falls by at least 0.5oC (i.e. if the set temp = 38oC, the heater
will not re-activate until the water temperature drops to 37.5oC). Therefore if the spa user selects a set
o
o
o
temperature point of 38 C the actual water temperature will be anywhere between 37.5 C - 38 C depending on
when the user checks the temperature.
3.
SpaNETTM spa controls have NO ability to cool the spa. The heater will only be activated to heat the water until
the selected set temperature point has been achieved. However in summer months where daily ambient
temperatures are higher the actual water temperature may rise higher than the selected set temperature point.
This is because the high ambient temperatures naturally raise the pool water temperature even if the user has
reduced the set temperature point significantly (refer to Section 3.4.1 - My Spa is Too Hot in Summer).
2.1
DISPLAY MODES
SpaNETTM spa controls have multiple display modes. The spa user can scroll through the different displays
by pressing the UP or DOWN button. Each display has a unique icon to indicate the current mode being
viewed. As you scroll through each mode a brief title screen will be shown followed by the actual display
mode (note change in icon). The available display modes are as follows:

2.2
ADJUSTING SET TEMPERATURE POINT
Unless adjusted the SpaNETTM spa controls will automatically heat to and maintain the default temperature
of 38oC. The temperature set point can be adjusted from 5oC - 40oC in steps of 0.2oC increments. The spa
water temperature will be maintained very close to the set point*.
1.
Hold either the UP or DOWN button to activate the set temperature
(S.TMP) adjustment.
2.
If not already shown the display with toggle to the S.TMP (
)
display mode and the set temperature point will begin adjusting. The
digits will flash indicating adjustable set temperature mode.
3.
Use the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the set point by 0.2oC
increments until the desired temperature is selected.
4.
Press OK to confirm and save the new setting or wait for the 10 sec
menu timeout. The main digits stop flashing and the display reverts
to the default display mode.
* Notes on Set Temperature:
1.
If the standard in-heater temperature sensor is used (i.e. no optional in-pool temperature sensor fitted) the
heater works off a 2oC hysteresis (thermostat). This means that the heater will firstly heat the water up to the
selected set temperature point. Thereafter the heater will not be re-activated until the water temperature falls by
at least 2oC (i.e. if the set temp = 38oC, the heater will not re-activate until the water temperature drops to 36oC).
o
Therefore if the spa user selects a set temperature point of 38 C the actual water temperature will be anywhere
between 36oC - 38oC depending on when the user checks the temperature.
2.
If the optional in-pool temperature sensor is used the heater works off a 0.5oC hysteresis (thermostat). This
means that the heater will firstly heat the water up to the selected set temperature point. Thereafter the heater
will not be re-activated until the water temperature falls by at least 0.5oC (i.e. if the set temp = 38oC, the heater
o
will not re-activate until the water temperature drops to 37.5 C). Therefore if the spa user selects a set
o
temperature point of 38 C the actual water temperature will be anywhere between 37.5oC - 38oC depending on
when the user checks the temperature.
2.3
DIGITAL TIME CLOCK
For convenient user reference and to assist in filtration & sleep time functions, your spa controller includes a
built-in real time clock. The user can choose to display the time in either 12 or 24 hour format. For ease of
reference the current time and day is displayed at the bottom left of the LCD screen on XS-3000/4000
models. On XS-2000 models the time display mode can be viewed by pressing the water temperate / time
toggle button or by scrolling through to the TIME display mode with the UP or DOWN button.

COUNTDOWN TIMER*
* Model Dependant
XS-3000/4000 models feature an integrated timer mode that enables the user to set an audible alarm to
sound after a user determined period (5-60 minutes). This handy function allows the spa user to completely
relax and enjoy their spa experience, confident in the fact they will be reminded by an alarm when their
assigned relaxation time is over. The timer will count down the specified period and show minutes and
seconds remaining on the LCD as it does. The timer icon in the top right of the LCD will be illuminated while
the timer is running. Once the time has elapsed the topside panel will beep for one minute or until a button is
pressed. NOTE: The pump(s), blower and light time-out periods are NOT adjusted by the minute timer.

Notes on Pump Operation:
1.
Inactivity time-out periods operate on all pumps. The time-out period is measured from the last press of any
topside panel button. If left running each pump will automatically turn off 30 minutes after the last button press.
At the end of all load time-out periods (this includes blower and light button presses) the controller will revert
itself to AUTO mode.
2.
In configurations where a pump button controls the filtration pump and the heater is ON and pump is to be
turned OFF - the pump will turn OFF after a 5 second delay, to allow the heater to cool down.
3.
In some configurations if heater is ON, activating multiple pumps may cause the heater to load shed and turn
OFF. This is to keep the system within its maximum power load. The heater will be re-engaged as soon as the
number of pumps running is reduced.
2.6
BLOWER OPERATION
The BLOWER (
) button is used to control the blower and allow adjustment of the blower speed. The
selected speed is saved and will be restored next time the blower is turned on, for future ON/OFF use.
Note that when the blower is first turned on it will run at maximum speed for approx three seconds before
changing to your preset speed – this is normal. In addition, note that the blower will operate for a short
period during sanitise cycles, refer to the sanitise section for more details.
2.6.1
TO TURN THE BLOWER ON / OFF
To turn the blower on and off, simply press the BLOWER button. The screen will temporarily show VARI /

SANITISE CYCLE
A sanitise cycle runs the filtration pump and ozone / uv (if fitted) to filter the pool water to restore and refresh
water quality. In addition, at the start and end of the cycle, the controller will sequentially (one at a time) run
any additional pumps (P1, P2, P3, P4 if fitted) and the blower for one minute each to purge the plumbing and
clear any unfiltered water trapped in those lines.
Whilst the cycle is running the display alternates between the W.CLN (water clean) title screen and the
minutes remaining in the cycle. The sanitise icon (
) is illuminated at the top left of the LCD to indicate
that a sanitise cycle is in progress.
There are two types of sanitise cycles:
-
2.8.1
Automatic daily sanitise
Manual (user invoked) sanitise
AUTOMATIC DAILY SANITISE
The controller will automatically run a 10 minute sanitise cycle every day at a user adjustable time (Default =
9:00am). This feature cannot be disabled – only the time may be changed (refer to Section 3.3 – Auto Daily
Sanitise Time of Day).
Notes on Automatic Daily Sanitise:
1.
2.
2.8.2
If the controller is asleep at the specified auto sanitise cycle time, it will wait until the sleep period ends and then
perform the sanitise cycle.
If spa in manual use at specified cycle start time the cycle is cancelled.
MANUAL SANITISE (WATER CLEAN) CYCLE
Press the SANITISE (
) button once after spa use to activate a 20 minute sanitisation and water clean
cycle to restore and refresh the water quality.
2.8.2.1 TO STOP A MANUAL SANITISE CYCLE (if running)
If the manual sanitise has been activated and you wish to cancel the feature press the SANITISE
(
) button again and the cycle will be stopped.
Notes on Manual Sanitise:

FILTRATION (FILT)
Automatic filtration is provided to ensure that the spa water is filtered for at least a minimum time each day
after considering how often the spa is used for normal operation or how long the pump runs for water
temperature maintenance. All time spent running the main pump under normal operation (manual use, water
temperature maintenance, sanitisation cycles) will be taken into account and where required the pump will
run for additional periods at the end of each hour to maintain the minimum level of daily filtration as specified
by the user. This feature is especially useful in warmer climates where very little automatic heating is
necessary to keep the spa water at the set temperature. In these circumstances the automatic filtration
ensures the minimum daily filtration limits are met. During all filtration cycles the filtration icon (
) is shown
at the top of the LCD display.
The spa control supports the use of two distinctly different types of pump for heating and filtration:
1) Small Circulation Pumps (often called 24 hr circ pumps) and
2) Larger Jet Pumps
The default filtration time and adjustment limits differ for each pump type as follows:
Min filtration hours/day
Max filtration hours/day
Default filtration hours/day

Time spent in sleep mode will be considered and the specified daily filtration time will be maintained even if the
sleep periods are adjusted. In some circumstances it is possible for the minutes per hour figure to exceed
reasonable limits (i.e large amounts of sleep time & high amounts of filtration hours per day). The following
maximum values are enforced: Small Circ Pump = 60 min p/hr; Jet Pump = 40 min p/hr.
If less than 5 minutes of filtration are required in a given hour NO filtration will occur in that hour, but the time will
be carried over to the following hour. This means that when using a lower filtration setting (say <4 hours a day),
filtration runs may only occur every two or more hours.
o
If the water temperature exceeds 43 C filtration is disabled (will not run).

3.4.1
MY SPA IS TOO HOT IN SUMMER (Additional notes on Filtration)
In summer months where the ambient (outside) temperatures are higher, if the daily filtration time is set too
high the water temperature may rise above the programmed set temperature or in some cases force the
controller into an over temperature error condition. Spas are designed to keep the water hot, NOT cool. They
have extensive insulation underneath and spa covers are used to minimise heat loss. In summer months the
ambient temperatures are high and most spas are located in direct sunlight all day. The night time
temperatures are cooler but remain high and most spa owners use spa covers the majority of the time.
These combined factors reduce the ability to dissipate heat and help maintain the set water temperature
without the need for additional heating.
The controllers advanced filtration will automatically sense that the pump has not been run to heat and will
engage the pump at the end of each hour to maintain the minimum level of daily filtration as specified by the
user. During warmer months the water is already at set temperature so the heater is not engaged during the
filtration cycle. Although the heater is not engaged, friction from the pump shaft and heat dissipated from the
pump motor actually raises the water temperature by approximately 0.2 – 0.5oC per hour. To minimise water
temperature increases from filtration the daily filtration time is broken into small hourly segments rather than
one large continuous block. However, if the user has set a large amount of daily filtration the controller
MUST run to achieve that filtration time even if this causes the water temperature to rise above the set
temperature point. The filtration cycles will only be stopped (disabled) if the water temperature rises above
the filtration over temperature cut out limit of 43oC.
Therefore in warmer months, to avoid the pool water temperature raising above the set temperature point it
may be necessary to DECREASE the daily filtration time. In more tropical climates where higher ambient
temperatures are experienced it may also be necessary to uncover your spa at night to allow some of the
excess heat to dissipate whilst ambient temperatures are lower.
3.5
POWER SAVE OFF PEAK TIMES (P.SAV)
Power utilities in some regions offer household power meters that can track power usage during different
periods of the day. This allows the utilities to offer very competitive power pricing during off peak power times.
The Power Save (P.SAV) function allows the user to optimise the spa’s power usage during the day to take
full advantage of the competitively priced off peak hours, and minimise daily operating cost.
When using the P.SAV function the user simply selects their desired level of off, low or high. Next the start
and end of peak power times are set so the spa control knows when to limit power usage.

Once P.SAV is enabled (level = low or high) the spa control stops filtration during those times. The spa
control will still maintain the set number of filtration hours per day by adjusting filtration to make it occur
outside of the selected peak power times.
There are three Power Save (P.SAV) levels:
OFF
P.SAV activity disabled
LOW
Filtration is disabled between the peak power times as set in P.SAV menu
Automatic heating operation is NOT adjusted
17
HIGH
Filtration is disabled between the peak power times as set in P.SAV menu
Demand heating operation is also altered to minimize the likelihood of the heater activating during peak
power periods. This is achieved by:
½ hr before the P.SAV period starts the water temperature is increased by 0.5oC
During the P.SAV period the hysteresis (thermostat) is widened as follows:
- In Pool Temperature Sensor Systems: Increase from 0.5oC to 1.0oC
- In Heater Temperature Sensor Systems: Increase from 2oC to 3oC

If spa in manual use during programmed P.SAV times, P.SAV is disabled until manual use times out.
Setting start time = stop time = P.SAV disabled.
By preheating the pool just before peak power time and then allowing it to cool during peak power time saves
the user the amount of energy released from the water multiplied by the difference in peak vs. normal power
prices… approx 1.15 kWh per 1000L of water per day on the power’s bill peak vs. normal rate. (Based on
4200j/’c/L x 1000L x 3600 sec / 1000w.)
Increasing the hysteresis during peak power time allows the water to cool further before demand heating
operates. It also reduces the frequency of pump operation hence saving yet more power at the cost of pool
temperature accuracy. On some well insulated pools the above will prevent filtration pump operation by demand
heating during peak power periods.
SLEEP TIME (SNZE)
Sleep time is a very handy feature that enables the user to silence the spa during the normal hours of sleep.
While the controller is asleep NO automatic heating or filtration maintenance will occur, however the spa can
still be operated by manual use without the need to adjust sleep time settings.
There are two individual sleep times can be set, each of which can operate on one or more specified
weekdays. This enables the user to program different sleep times for different days (i.e. weekdays vs
weekends), as well as custom settings on a particular day/time where the user may want the spa silenced.
By default both sleep time settings are DISABLED.

NOTES TO AVOID POOL WATER FREEZING
When the spa control is in a designated sleep period, all system functions are shut down including
demand heating. Whilst asleep, if the pool water temperature falls below the set point the heater WILL
NOT turn on to maintain that temperature. Whilst all spas are insulated and covers are used to minimise
heat loss, as the ambient temperatures fall below the pool water temperature, convection heat loss
occurs. Therefore in extremely cold climates (ambient < 0oC) if the set temperature heating point is set
too low, and sleep times periods are configured too long there is a possibility that the pool water may fall
below 0oC and freeze. To prevent the pool water freezing we suggest you maintain a set temperature of
30oC or higher, and minimise or if required disable the sleep time function. Also ensure the spa cover is
in place at all times when spa not in use.

DIAGNOSTICS
SpaNETTM spa controls feature self diagnostics and scrolling error messages to quickly troubleshoot
possible problems. Should the spa control encounter a problem the alarm will beep and the error code /
message will scroll across the topside panel screen until the problem is resolved. The beeper will continue to
sound for a period of 5 mintues. To silence the alarm sooner press any button on the topside panel and the
beeper will be disabled. If an error condition is experienced all spa functions are shut down and the spa
should not be used until the error condition has been resolved. A list of error codes with descriptions of
problems and possible solutions has been detailed below for your reference. For more detailed information
refer to the Troubleshooting Guide located on the SpaNETTM product support CD.
NOTE: For most error codes mains power to the spa control must be turned OFF and then back ON
before the error condition will be cleared.
IMPORTANT NOTE: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY TROUBLESHOOTING ALWAYS ENSURE MAINS
POWER IS ISOLATED AND TURNED OFF.

SPA POOL MAINTENANCE
If you own a spa pool or hot tub, it is important to understand that it requires a certain amount of owner
maintenance to ensure it operates properly and that the water remains clean and healthy. The water
treatment requirements for a spa pool differ from those for a swimming pool, because you are dealing with
hot water. Hot water requires different treatment to prevent the growth of viruses, bacteria and algae.
The correct use of chemicals will maintain the water in a clean and healthy condition. The parameters that
need to be regularly checked are, total alkalinity, pH and sanitiser (Lithium Hypochlorite) level. Your spa
retailer or local SPASA pool shop should be able to supply a suitable test kit and advise on its correct use. It
is advisable to test the water on a daily basis.
Special note:
Do not mix chemicals
Do not add water to the chemicals, only add chemicals to the water
5.1
CHANGING THE WATER
The spa water should be changed every three to four months, or remove and replace approx 30% or 1/3 of
the volume of water every three to four weeks.
5.2
TOTAL ALKALINITY
The total alkalinity should be in the range of 90 - 150 ppm (parts per million). A spa or hot tub with low total
alkalinity would require constant adjustment of the pH.
To raise total alkalinity, add sodium bicarbonate in small quantities. To lower the total alkalinity, add acid (Dry
Acid – Sodium Bisulphate) in small quantities. Test in one hour.
5.3
THE pH LEVEL
pH is the measure of the acid/alkaline level of the water. It is important to maintain the correct pH level as it
effects the action of other chemicals. The pH is measured on a scale of 1 to 14. Seven is neutral, below
seven is acidic, and above seven is alkaline.
Incorrect pH levels can cause poor sanitiser efficiency, eye and skin irritations, corrosion of metal fittings,
cloudy water and formation of scale on the pool walls and fittings. The pH should always be above 7.0
(measured at room temperature, not hot) to avoid possible corrosion of equipment. However, it should not be
higher than 7.8, as this would reduce the efficiency of the sanitiser.
If the pH level needs to be increased, add soda ash; to reduce the pH level, add dry acid. Wait for one hour
and test again.
5.4
SANITISING THE SPA
Sanitising your spa is essential for safe, healthy water, free of harmful micro-organisms. The most common
form of sanitiser for spas is chlorine (Lithium Hypochlorite). Ozone may also be used, but because there can
be no residual, chlorine must be used in conjunction with it. Salt Water Chlorinators must be of sufficient
capacity to maintain the recommended chlorine residual.
The amount of disinfectant required depends on a number of factors, including, water temperature, the
frequency of use and the number of people using the spa. It is most important to always keep the sanitiser
level at 2.00 to 3.00 ppm. In very hot water the sanitiser can be used up very quickly, and should be checked
regularly whilst the spa is being used.
22
After heavy use of the spa or on a weekly basis, the water should be shock dosed with sanitiser. Be sure to
check the level again before use. If the spa or hot tub is not being used, add sanitiser every day to prevent
contamination.
RECOMMENDED LEVELS
* Total alkalinity 90 - 110 ppm
* pH 7.4 - 7.6
* Chlorine 2.00 - 3.00 ppm
It is important to note that if the right pH and sanitiser levels are maintained, viruses and bacteria should not
survive in the water. In terms of general hygiene, it is important to keep the filter and pump clean. Clean the
filter regularly and empty hair and lint from the pump as often as required.
5.5
FOR SAFE AND ENJOYABLE USE
-
-
5.6
Children should be supervised at all times when either in or near the spa or hot tub.
Alcohol should not be drunk while using the spa.
Be sure the temperature does not exceed 40oC. An ideal range is 35 oC to 38oC.
Spa use should be restricted to approx 20 minutes to avoid heat stress.
If you have any physical ailments you should see your doctor before using the spa or hot tub. People
with heart or blood pressure problems and pregnant women should seek a doctors permission
before use.
Do not put your head under the water.
Store chemicals in a cool dry place, OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
FILTRATION
A swimming pool must be filtered to remove insoluble particles and to produce clear water. Clear water is
desirable not only for aesthetic reasons, but for hygiene and safety. The quality of filtration depends on the
size of the filter media. The finer the media, the higher the purity of water obtained.
Pool water filtration is a balance between water quality and water quantity. Either quality or quantity must be
sacrificed to enhance the other. The finer the filter media, the faster the increase in pressure across the filter
bed, and the more frequent the need for backwashing or filter replacement. Cartridge filters are the most
commonly used filters in the spa pool marketplace today.
CARTRIDGE FILTERS
The filtering medium is a concertina shaped cartridge providing a large filter surface within a
relatively small housing. This large filter area means the filter cycle, or period between cleaning, is
increased.
Unlike other filters, there is no provision for backwashing. When the cartridge is clogged, it must be
removed for cleaning. Filter cartridges are generally hosed off. However, those used in a heated pool
or spa may need to be soaked in a cleaning solution.
One of the advantages of the cartridge filter is that the method of cleaning makes it ideal for use in
unsewered areas or where disposal of waste water is a problem. The filtering ability of this type of
filter is somewhere between sand and diatomaceous earth and will remove particles down to
approximately 8 – 10 microns in size. Always refer to the manufacturer for installation and
maintenance of filters.

SPA COVERS
A spa pool hard cover should be installed whenever the spa is not in use, unless the spa has gone into an
over temperature condition. The spa cover should be such that it fits the pool exactly with support being
achieved from the sides and top edge of the spa pool and not the water itself. The spa cover works as a
safety measure to help prevent young children accessing the pool whilst not in use and also aids in
minimising evaporation and heat loss. In fact the spa pool will not heat properly without the spa cover
installed in place. Spa covers also offer the following benefits:
1. Minimise the cooling of the pool by stopping evaporation and convection heat loss. This occurs
mainly during the night when the ambient air temperature drops below the temperature of the water
in the pool. By creating a barrier between the water surface and the outside air, these losses are
virtually eliminated.
2. By keeping evaporation to a minimum, you not only save water, but you save on the cost of
chemicals as you don't have to re balance your pool after topping it up. It also reduces the amount of
chlorine lost to the Sun's UV rays.
3. Spa covers keep the pool cleaner - about 80% to 90% of debris is kept out of the pool.
4. Reduces heating costs by up to 50%. Effectively 90% of heat loss is from the surface of the pool. By
using a cover in conjunction with the heater system, significant energy cost savings can be made.
Notes on Spa Covers:
When treating spa pool water with chemicals ENSURE SPA COVER IS REMOVED for at least half an hour
(30 minutes) after adding chemicals to the water.
