IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
ADDITIONAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS:
1. WARNING - risk of fatal hypothermia.
When installing and using this electrical equipment, basic
safety precautions should always be followed, including the
following:
a) The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication can greatly
increase the risk of fatal Hypothermia in a pool.
b) The causes, symptoms, and effects of Hypothermia may be
described as follows: Hypothermia occurs when the internal
temperature of the body reaches a level several degrees
below the normal body temperature of 37°C (98.6°F). The
symptoms of Hypothermia include an decrease in the internal
temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness, and
fainting. The effects of Hypothermia include:
• Unawareness of impending hazard;
• Failure to perceive cold;
• Failure to recognize the need to exit the pool;
• Physical inability to exit the pool;
• Foetal damage in pregnant women; and
• Unconsciousness and danger of drowning.
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury, do not
permit children to use this product unless they
are closely supervised at all times.
3. In standard form, the Riptide pool requires only one supply
of 240 volts 32 amp or 45 amp, except the Poseidon model
which is 21 amp and 45 amp. Please consult with a qualified
electrician to verify current legislation
ALWAYS USE A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN TO
CONNECT THIS Pool TO YOUR ELECTRICITY
SUPPLY
4. DANGER - risk of accidental drowning. Extreme
caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorised access
by children. To avoid accidents, ensure that children cannot
use the Riptide pool unless they are supervised at all times.
2. WARNING - risk to infants, the elderly, and
women planning pregnancy or during pregnancy.
Please consult your physician if the above applies to you or
anyone using your pool.
5. DANGER - risk of injury. The suction fittings in
the Riptide pool 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 the Riptide pool if the suction
fittings are broken or missing. Never replace a suction fitting
with one rated lower than the flow rate marked on the original
suction fitting.
3. WARNING - risk of children drowning. Although
your Riptide pool cover is not rated as a safety cover, it is
wise to always keep the pool cover securely fastened when
not in use. This will help discourage children from attempting
to enter the pool when not supervised by an adult.
4. WARNING - risk of drowning. Use caution when
bathing alone. Overexposure to hot water may
cause nausea, dizziness, and fainting.
6. DANGER - risk of electric shock. Do not permit
any electrical appliance, such as a light, telephone, radio,
or television, within 5 feet (1.5m) of the unit. These units
have an integral ground fault circuit interrupter, but this only
covers the pools’ own electrics.
5. WARNING - risk of injury. Always use extreme
caution while entering or exiting the pool. Surfaces can be
very slippery when wet. Do not step or sit on head rests.
Keep all breakable objects out of the pool area.
7. WARNING - to reduce the risk of injury:
a) Before entering the pool check the temperature.
b) Since excessive water temperatures have a high potential
for causing foetal damage during the early months of
pregnancy, pregnant or possibly pregnant women should
seek advice before using a pool and should maintain safe
water temperatures.
c) The counter-current of the Riptide pool is extremely
powerful and could cause injury if used incorrectly. Do not
stand next to the counter-current nozzles when the motor is
running. Ideally, you should be placed at least 1 meter from
the nozzles. Never attempt to adjust the swim jet nozzles
whilst the motor is running
d) The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication, before or during
pool use, may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility
of drowning.
e) Persons suffering from obesity, or with a medical history of
heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system
problems, or diabetes, should consult a physician before
using a Riptide pool.
f) Persons using medication should consult a physician
before using the pool since some medication may induce
drowsiness while other medication may affect heart rate,
blood pressure and circulation.
6. WARNING - risk of injury. Never use the pool
immediately after strenuous exercise.
7. WARNING - risk of injury. Individuals with infectious
diseases should not use the pool
8. WARNING - risk of injury. Maintain water chemistry
in accordance with chemical manufacturer’s instructions.
9. WARNING - risk of shock. The pool must not be
operated in severe weather conditions, i.e. electrical storms.
10. CAUTION - unauthorised access. Secure
the pool area against unauthorised access. Make sure all
barriers meet local codes. Keep the pool cover on pool when
not being used.
11. CAUTION - risk of damage to pool or
equipment. By performing maintenance as described
later in this Owner’s Manual, the chance of damage to your
pool and its equipment will be greatly reduced. Never block
the air vents that lead to the equipment compartment. Doing
so may cause the pool equipment to overheat.
12. CAUTION - non-approved accessories. Using
accessories not approved by the manufacturer could void
your guarantee or cause other problems. Please consult with
your authorised Riptide dealer.
13. CAUTION - location of your Riptide pool.
4
Locate your Riptide pool on a surface that can withstand
the weight bearing requirements of the pool (see Selecting
a Site for your Riptide pool in this Manual). Also, locate your
pool in an environment that can withstand repeated exposure
to water and the possibility of a major spill.
INSTALLATION & SET-UP
SELECTING A SITE FOR YOUR Riptide
pool
Note: Typical outdoor surfaces include, but are not
limited to: concrete; brick; non-slip tile; wood-decking;
pea shingle or sand.
Your Riptide pool is designed for either indoor or
outdoor use. In either case, please adhere to the
following guidelines:
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
and CONNECTIONS
1. Select a site that is stable and capable of supporting
the weight of your pool, its water, and the people
using it (refer to the model brochure or contact an
authorised Riptide dealer for the filled weight of
your pool). If installed on a suspended floor/deck, it
should be capable of supporting your pool. If you have
concerns on this matter, please contact a qualified,
licensed contractor.
All Riptide pools must be wired in accordance with
all national electric codes. Always use a qualified
electrician to perform the electrical installation.
WIRING DIAGRAMS
Please reference the wiring diagram specific to your
Riptide pool‘s control system:
• Standard Riptide pool 32 amp / 45 amp model
control system
— one input 240V 32 amp / 45 amp single phase
2. The surface needs to be flat and level as it must
provide continuous support for the entire bottom of
the pool structure. Do not shim or block up the pool
creating voids below the base framework. If you do not
intend to use a pit please ensure you have adequate
drainage or a soak away.
• Poseidon Riptide pool 21 amp spa end, 45 amp
pool end
— two inputs 240V, one 45 amp and one 21 amp
single phase
3. Avoid installing the pool in a pit or low area where
water may accumulate and damage the pool or its
equipment. Choose a site where water will drain away
from the pool and not towards it.
• Riptide Oceana requires a 40 amp supply
220/240 VOLT INSTALLATION
4. Important: with all installations, the Riptide pool
must be located at least 150cm [5ft] from all electrical
outlets, switches, and other permanently installed
electrical devices.
Use only a qualified, licensed electrician to make 240
Volt electrical installations.
Your 220/240 Volt standard Riptide pool 32 amp
/ 45 amp model requires one fused and dedicated
electrical circuit of 32 amp / 45 amp and a minimum
supply wire size of 6mm. It is important that these
circuits are dedicated (not being used by any other
electrical appliance) or your pool may not function
properly.
Indoor considerations: There are several
considerations when installing your Riptide pool
indoors: the environment both around and below the
pool should be water resistant. It must be capable of
handling water splashed out from the pool as well as
the possibility of a leak from the vessel ( a catch basin
equivalent to the volume of your pool is recommended);
it is recommended that the room you install the pool
in has proper ventilation. This can usually be achieved
by an exhaust fan or a dehumidifier if pool is used for
less than one hour per day.
The 220/240V Riptide pool 45 amp model requires
one fused and dedicated electrical circuit of 45 amp
and a minimum supply wire size of 6mm. It is important
that these circuits are dedicated (not being used by
any other electrical appliance) or your pool may not
function properly.
Note: Typical indoor surfaces include, but are not
limited to: concrete; wood; non-slip tile or linoleum.
Position your Riptide pool at least 150cm [5ft] from all
electrical outlets or devices.
Outdoor Considerations: When selecting an outdoor
site, several things should be considered. Firstly, avoid
selecting a site where excessive water may contact the
pool such as from sprinklers or a roof edge without rain
gutters. If possible, avoid areas of direct, prolonged
sunlight. The ultraviolet rays of sunlight will tend to
fade and damage your Riptide pool cover and cabinet.
Lastly, avoid locating your pool in an area where debris
could be blown into the pool. If sinking your Riptide
pool into the ground a suitable drainage system must
be installed to avoid the risk of hydrostatic pressure
from rising ground water.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Never, under any circumstances, install your
Riptide pool on an electrically heated floor.
5
INSTALLATION & SET-UP
4. Check Valve: Verify that all valves aside from the
drainage valves described previously are in the fully
open position. A valve that is half closed will result in
a noisy pump due to lack of water flow.
ELECTRICIAN’S INSTRUCTIONS
We strongly recommend that a suitable seal cable
guide is installed to retain the water tight seal of the
control boxes. The incoming power line must be suitably
fused and protected to a C.E. minimum standard and
any national specific regulations required.
5. Fill the pool: Fill the pool to approximately the
halfway point on the skimmers.
6. Water overflow Built into the back of the skimmer
on all models except Oceana, is a water overflow. The
overflow stops rain water from over fillimg the pool.
Excess water will flow out from the corner adjacent to
the overflow.
CHECKLIST BEFORE FILLING YOUR
Pool
Important: The equipment should never be operated
without water in the pool. Serious damage to the
equipment will occur.
Note 1: The higher the water level, the less pool users
it will take to cause the water to overflow the pool
edge. Also, water will splash out more easily whilst
swimming in the pool if it is over-filled.
1. Installing your cover: Your Riptide pool cover
comes with tie-down straps and locking hardware to
attach the cover to the pool cabinet or decking.
Note 2:
If you live in a hard water area and have access to a
water softener we recommend you fill the pool with
softened water. The calcium balance of the pool water
should be approximately 40 parts per million.
2. Check drain valves: Check that the pool drain
valve is fully closed.
3. Tighten equipment fittings: In the equipment
compartment, hand-tighten all PVC pipe unions,
pump bleed valve and pump drain plugs to prevent
the possibility of leakage (sometimes these fittings
loosen during shipment). Check also that all fittings
on the filter are closed (HAND TIGHT ONLY! ).
6. Check for leaks: After the Riptide pool is full, but
before turning the power on, check all the fittings and
equipment in the equipment compartment for signs of
leakage. If a leak is detected, except from fittings that
can be hand-tightened, call your authorised Riptide
dealer.

MAINTENANCE
WATER CHEMISTRY
3. pH Control
Proper pH balance is extremely important in controlling
bacteria, providing water that’s comfortable for the
user, and in preventing damage to the pool and its
equipment. Using the scale of 0-14, pH is the measure
of acidity and alkaline in the water. pH levels under 7.0
are acidic while pH levels over 7.0 are alkaline. The
proper pH range for a spa is 7.2 to 7.6.
Tap water that is safe to drink is not always right for
your pool. Normal tap water usually contains minerals
and micro-contaminants that are not visible to the
naked eye. Properly testing and treating your spa
water is essential for the health of your pool as well as
the people who use it.
Proper chemical maintenance can control and
help prevent the following:
High pH levels (over 7.6) can cause the following:
Scale build-up on the pool and its equipment; cloudy
water; a prematurely dirty filter; and less effective
chlorine sanitation. To correct high pH levels, add a
pH REDUCER.
1. Bacteria, algae and fungi, which can spread disease
and infection to humans.
2. Staining and scale build-up on your pool shell,
equipment, and piping.
Low pH levels (under 7.2) can cause the
following: Discomfort to the user and corrosion to
the pool and its equipment. To correct low pH levels,
add a pH INCREASER.
3. Clogged filters. With the pool please be aware
that the chemical maintenance of your hot water spa
section and the cooler pool section will be different
and not always proportional to the volume of water.
Note: Never use muriatic or hydrochloric acid to
adjust pH as it can damage your pool shell and
surroundings.
Note 1: When using chemicals, always follow the
instructions provided on the manufacturer’s labels.
Note 2: Use an accurate test kit to perform all
chemistry tests.
4. Total alkalinity (TA)
Total Alkalinity (TA) is the measure of carbonates and
bicarbonates in the spa water. Low TA can cause pH
to be unstable, bouncing from one level to another,
causing the water to be corrosive or scale forming
to the pool and it’s equipment. To correct low TA,
add a TOTAL ALKALINITY INCREASER. High TA
can cause scale build-up, cloudy water, as well as
other pH problems. To correct high TA, contact your
authorised Riptide dealer.
Note 3: Never mix chemicals.
Note 4: Always add chemicals directly to the pool
water, evenly spreading the chemicals over the
surface. Run the Filter Pump for 15 or more minutes
after applying any chemical. To help with the mixing
of chemicals you can turn on your massage system
as well.
5. Calcium hardness (CH) 250-500 PPM
Calcium hardness (CH) is the measure of dissolved
calcium in the water. Low CH (soft water) can result
in staining to the pool’s surface as well as corrosion
to the pool and its equipment. To correct low CH, add
a CALCIUM HARDNESS INCREASER. High CH
(hard water) can cause cloudy water as well as rough
scale build-up on the spa’s surface and equipment. To
correct or manage high CH, contact your authorised
Riptide dealer.
OVERVIEW OF WATER CHEMISTRY
1. Sanitation
Sanitizers kill bacteria and keep the water clean.
Effective and safe Sanitizers include any of the
following: STABILISED CHLORINE GRANULES
(sodium dichloro isocyanurate dihydrate), or
BROMINE GRANULES.
Note: Trichlor chlorine tablets and/or non-dichlor
granular chlorines must not be used in your pool ,
they may damage the pool , voiding your warranty.
6. Stain & scale control
Stain and scale problems are common in hot water
environments. To help prevent and control staining
and scaling, add a SCALE INHIBITOR.
2. Weekly shock dose
As your pool is used, non-filterable wastes, including
perspiration, oils, hair sprays, etc, will build up in the
water. These substances make the water unattractive
in appearance and odour, and can also interfere with
sanitizer effectiveness. Normal sanitation does not
eliminate these waste substances but shock dosing
does. Shock dosing is achieved by ‘shocking’ the
spa water with a weekly dose of NON-CHLORINE
SHOCK or double dose of CHLORINE GRANULES.
7. Foam control
Water emulsifies shampoo, soap and detergents, and
combined with high water temperatures, can cause
surface foaming. To prevent and control foam on
the surface of the pool water add a small amount of
FOAM REDUCER.
17
MAINTENANCE
8. Clearing cloudy water
There are two basic reasons that pool water becomes
cloudy. First, non-filterable liquid wastes (perspiration,
etc.) have contaminated the water. To remove these
waste substances, shock the water (as described
previously). Second, non-filterable micro-particulate
wastes (dust, etc.) have contaminated the water.
To remove these waste substances, use a WATER
CLARIFIER.
MAINTAINING Pool WATER
9. Sanitizing with Non-Chlorine Shock
(potassium peroxymonosulfate)
When sanitizing your pool with Non-Chlorine Shock
you should add the correct dose directly to the pool/
pool water with the jets running.
To maintain the above sanitizer level with CHLORINE,
please refer to your authorised Riptide dealer for
assistance.
Sanitizer and pH Levels
It is important to test and adjust the sanitizer and pH
levels of your pool on a daily basis.
With each sanitizer test, use STABILISED CHLORINE
GRANULES to maintain the following levels:
With ozone
Chlorine Level: 3—5 PPM
Shock dose
Once a week, and when the pool is not in use, shock
dose the spa water by adding the following:
Non-Chlorine Shock will give up to two hours of safe
bathing. If you use the spa/pool for more than two
hours it will be necessary to re-dose.
Add four tablespoons of NON-CHLORINE SHOCK
to the spa end and eight tablespoons of NONCHLORINE SHOCK to the pool end, or if only
one volume of water, eight tablespoons of NONCHLORINE SHOCK into the pool or double dose of
CHLORINE GRANULES.
On a weekly basis it is important to shock your spa/
pool with non-chlorine shock or double dose
of CHLORINE GRANULES.
Note: Use only branded Hot Tub Barn chemicals to
ensure premium performance.
Stain and scale control
STARTING YOUR Pool WITH
NEW WATER
Use a SCALE INHIBITOR as per the instructions on
the manufacturer’s label.
1. As your pool fills with tap water, add 10 teaspoons
of STABILISED CHLORINE GRANULES to the pool
end and in a pool add 2 and a half teaspoons to the
spa end. This will provide the initial protection against
bacteria in your pipes.
Foam control
As required, use FOAM REDUCER as per the
instructions on the manufacturer’s label.
Cloudy water prevention and control
Use a WATER CLARIFIER as per the instructions on
the manufacturer’s label. If the pool water is cloudy
call your Riptide dealer for advice.
Note: If you live in a hard water area you can fill the
pool with a 50/50 mix of hard and soft water. The
calcium balance should be between 250 and 500
parts per million.
WATER CHEMISTRY TROUBLESHOOTING
Prior to each pool use, check the water. If the water
appears cloudy or off-colour, has significant surface
foam or smells of chlorine, then there is a problem
with the water and it needs to be treated or drained.
Using the spa of the pool section in these conditions
could result in a skin rash or other irritation.
2. When the pool is completely filled with water
complete the following.
3. If possible, have your authorised Riptide dealer test
the Calcium Hardness (CH) of your water and adjust
as per your dealer’s recommendation (the correct level
of CH depends on your overall water conditions).
For assistance in handling water chemistry problems,
consult your authorised Riptide dealer or another
service centre capable of performing a detailed Water
Analysis.
4. Test and adjust the Total alkalinity (TA) to the range
of 125-150 PPM (parts per million).
5. Test and adjust the pH to the range of 7.2-7.6.
6. After the water has circulated for approximately
a quarter of an hour, retest the chlorine level in your
water and add the correct amount to raise the level to
between 3—5 PPM.
Start-up water chemistry is now complete. However,
it may take several days for the filter to completely
clear the water.

MAINTENANCE
CHANGING YOUR Pool WATER
CLEANING YOUR FILTERS
Depending on usage, your spa section water will
need to be changed approximately every 4 months
or whenever your spa water becomes difficult to
manage. For the pool section we recommend that you
replace a third of your pool water every 4 months.
The filters are located inside the skimmer. Put your hand
into the skimmer and remove each filter one at a time.
On a regular basis it is important to remove excessive
pollution and organic matter from the filters. It is
recommend that on a regular basis the filters are either
cleaned with INSTANT FILTER CLEANER or allowed
to soak overnight in CARTRIDGE CLEANER. In either
case after degreasing use a high pressure hose or
pressure cleaner to remove cleaner residue and calcium.
DRAIN OPERATION
Drain open
Locate drain valve at floor level.
To empty the water from the pool
remove the screw-cap from pipe.
Twist anti clockwise and pull pipe
out. Water will now drain out
- allow to drain by gravity only.
Filter replacement: Replace the filters every year
or sooner if necessary. Only use genuine Riptide filter
cartridge replacements.
CAUTION: Using a brush to clean a filter could
damage it. Commercially available filter cleaners may
be used and can be obtained from your authorised
Riptide dealer.
Drain closed
To fill the pool up with water, screw
cap onto pipe. Push and turn anti
clockwise to lock closed.
Pool SHELL CARE
For pools with two volumes of
water, there is a drain dedicated to
each end.
The pool surface is durable and easy to clean:
Pool shell surface: For normal cleaning use
waterline cleaner solution. For surface marks,
use SURFACE CLEANER. To apply these cleaners,
use a soft, damp cloth or sponge. Rinse well and dry
with a clean cloth.
Note 1: Drain water to an area that can handle the
water volume of your pool.
Note 2: If draining water onto vegetation, make sure
that the sanitizer level (chlorine level) of your spa
water is less than 5 PPM.
General cleaning: With normal use of your spa, oils,
lotions, and hairsprays will build up on the surface of
the water, sometimes leaving a scum line around the
perimeter of your shell. This scum line can easily be
removed with SURFACE CLEANER.
4. To clean the pool shell refer to ‘pool shell
care’.
Steps to refill your pool:
1. Check that the drain is fully closed.
To remove grease, oil, paint and ink stains, use 25%
isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol in water.
2. Close door to equipment compartment.
3. Refill pool with tap water. Fill the pool to the
midway level of the skimmer in each section. The
depth should be approximately 150mm -190mm
(6-7½”) down from the top rim of the pool.
Note 1: Never allow your pool surface to come in
contact with acetone (nail polish remover), nail polish,
dry cleaning solution, lacquer thinners, gasoline, pine
oil, abrasive cleaners or any other harsh chemical.
These chemicals can damage your pool shell and
void your warranty.
Note 1: The higher the water level, the fewer spa
users it will take to cause the water to overflow the
top of the spa.
Note 2: Avoid using cleaning agents that will leave
suds in your pool water.
Note 2: If you live in a hard water area you can fill
the pool with a 50/50 mix of hard and soft water. The
calcium balance should be between 250 and 500
parts per million.
CLEANING AND PROTECTING THE
HEADRESTS
Clean on a regular basis with soap, water and a clean
cloth. Use 303® Protectant or it’s equivalent once per
month. This will maintain water resistance and lustre
of the product. Between uses it is recommended to
remove the headrests and store in a dry place.
4. Restore electrical power supply.
5. See ‘Starting Your Pool with New Water’ under
‘Water Chemistry’.
Note: If headrests are left in the pool you must expect
colour loss and gradual breakdown of headrest
material due to the corrosive effect of chlorine and
ozone.
20
MAINTENANCE
COVER CARE
No-use for 2-6 weeks: If you plan to not use your
pool for 2-6 weeks, then you may wish to lower the
temperature setting to approximately 26°C during the
No-use period.
Your cover has a one year warranty.
Basic instructions are provided below. It is important
that you refer to the information that came with your
cover, which provides detailed information on caring
for it and what to do to protect its warranty.
Cleaning and conditioning your cover. On a
monthly basis, complete the following:
No-use for over 6 weeks: If you plan to not use your
pool for over 6 weeks, then it is suggested that you
winterize your pool by following the steps below.
Pool WINTERIZATION
1. Remove the cover and lay it down on a flat, clean
surface near a garden hose.
1. Drain the water from the pool (see ‘Steps to drain
your pool’ under ‘Changing your pool water’ in this
Owner’s Manual).
2. Rinse the cover to remove any loose debris.
2. Drain the pool equipment. This is done by removing
the drain plug from the pumps, loosening all PVC pipe
unions and pump air bleed valves in the equipment
compartment. On the base of the filter columns there
is a drain plug which you need to unscrew.
3. Using a soft bristle brush, clean the top (vinyl
portion) of the cover with a mild solution of washing
up liquid — about one teaspoon of soap to two gallons
of water. Scrub the cover, using a gentle circular
motion, being careful not to let any areas of the cover
dry before rinsing with water.
3. Clean the pool shell (see ‘Pool shell care’ in this
Owner’s Manual).
4. Rinse the cover thoroughly and then dry with a
clean cloth.
4. Remove filter cartridge(s), clean filter (see ‘Cleaning
your filter’ in this Owner’s Manual), allow to dry, and
then store inside your garage or home.
5. We recommend the use of 303 Protectant to give
your cover a shiny appearance and UV protection.
6. Wipe and/or rinse any dirt from the bottom side of
the cover.
5. Re-attach and secure cover to the pool
7. Replace the cover and secure with cover locks.
De-Winterization is completed by reversing the above
procedure and then refilling the pool (see ‘Steps to
refill your pool’ under ‘Changing your spa water’ in
this Owner’s Manual).
Pool DE-WINTERIZATION
MISCELLANEOUS CARE
Vacuuming the pool: Debris from wind, trees and
spa users will occasionally accumulate on the bottom
of your pool. Your pool’s filtration system will remove
the smaller debris. Debris that is too large or too
heavy for the filtration system will have to be removed
by the use of a spa vacuum, such as a Pool Buster. If
you do not have a spa vacuum, please contact your
authorised Riptide dealer.
Note: If your pool water is not emptied during
periods of No-use, you should test and chemically
treat the water approximately once per week. Not
doing so may lead to corrosion, staining, and/or
scaling to your pool and its equipment. If there is no
one available to take care of the pool on a weekly
basis, then it is recommended that you winterize your
pool as described above.
LOW USE OR NO-USE PERIODS
At certain times of the year you may not use your pool
as often as expected. For these Low-use or No-use

Before requesting service from your dealer, refer to
the TroubleShooting Guide in this Owner’s
Manual to determine the necessary course of action.
If you are not able to solve the problem using the
troubleshooting guide, please contact your authorised
Riptide dealer.
Low-use: If your pool is being used less than once
per month, then you may wish to lower the temperature
setting of the spa section by approximately 5°C.
Lowering the temperature on your spa will cut your
cost of operation if you are not using the pool for
extended periods. However, you will need to adjust the
temperature setting approximately 120 minutes before
each use to heat the spa section to the desired level.
No-use for 1-2 weeks: If you plan to not use your
pool for 1-2 weeks, then we suggest that you not
make any changes in operating your pool.
