Important user safety instructions
Your physiological response to hot water is subjective and depends on your age, health, and medical history. If you don’t
know your tolerance to hot water, or if you get a headache, or become dizzy or nauseous when using your hot tub, get
out and cool off immediately.
WARNINGS
HYPERTHERMIA
1 Children should NOT use a hot tub
without alert adult supervision.
2 Children should not enter a hot tub where
water temperature exceeds body
temperature (37˚C / 98.6˚F).
3 As prolonged immersion in water temperatures in excess
of 38˚C (100˚F) may be injurious to your health, we
recommend measuring the water temperature with an
accurate thermometer before entering the tub. We also
recommend establishing lower temperatures and
shorter use periods for young children and/or those
users potentially affected by hot temperatures.
4 Do not allow children to submerge their head
under water.
5 Do not use a hot tub unless all suction guards are
installed to prevent body and hair entrapment. Do not sit
in front of, or on top of the suction fittings or skimmer,
as this will obstruct proper circulation and may result in
personal injury.
6 Never operate the hot tub pump at high speed without
having all suction and return lines open.
7 Always keep the hardcover installed and locked when
the hot tub is not in use.
8 People using medications and/or having any adverse
medical history should consult a physician before using
a hot tub.
9 People with infectious diseases should not use a hot tub.
10 Exercise caution when entering or exiting a hot tub.
Where practical, install a safety grab bar or handrail.
Turn off the jets before entering the hot tub to improve
visibility of the steps or flat entry area.
11 To avoid unconsciousness and possible drowning, do not
use drugs or alcohol before or during the use of a hot tub.
12 Pregnant woman should consult a physician before
using a hot tub.
13 Do not use a hot tub immediately following strenuous
exercise.
14 Do not permit or use electric appliances (such as a light,
telephone, radio or television) within 1.5 m (5 ft) of this
hot tub, unless such appliances are rated at 12VDC or less.
15 Test the GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) monthly.
16 Post emergency phone numbers for Police, Fire Dept.,
and Ambulance at the nearest phone.
17 Maintain water chemistry/balance in accordance with
manufacturer’s instruction
Since your hot tub can be set to reach temperatures of 40˚C
(104˚F), users should be aware that extended submersion in
water that exceeds normal body temperature can lead to
hyperthermia.
The causes, symptoms and effects of hyperthermia may be
described as follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature
of the body reaches several degrees above the normal
body temperature of 37˚C (98.6˚F). The symptoms of
hyperthermia include drowsiness, lethargy, and an increase in
the internal temperature of the body. The effects of
hyperthermia include:
• Unawareness of impending hazard
• Failure to perceive heat
• Failure to recognize the need to exit the hot tub
• Physical inability to exit the hot tub
• Fetal damage in pregnant woman
• Unconsciousness resulting in the danger of drowning
If you sense any of the symptoms of hyperthermia, safely
exit the hot tub immediately.
WARNING
THE USE OF ALCOHOL, DRUGS OR MEDICATION
CAN SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE THE RISK OF FATAL
HYPERTHERMIA.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT LOCATION
Your Hydropool hot tub can be installed indoors or out, on the ground, in the ground or half-and-half. The following
information will assist you in choosing the right location for your individual needs. When making your decision,
always remember that hot tubs can be enjoyed year-round, indoors or out, regardless of the climate. Many Hydropool
owners report that their favourite time to use a hot tub is in the cooler fall and winter months, while others praise the
enjoyment of using their hot tub in the warmer spring and summer months.
INDOOR LOCATIONS
These ‘split’ and lower profile versions are designed to
accommodate narrow doors or shallow stairwells. Since the
dimension from the seat to the top of the lip is identical to
the “regular profile” units, water submersion, for even the
tallest user, is the same.
If members of your family are not cold weather enthusiasts,
or if your backyard or patio area is not suitable for a hot
tub installation, then an indoor location for your hot tub
may be your best or only choice. You may wish to create an
exercise/spa area in your home, or install your hot tub in a
glass solarium or four-season room adjoining your home.
Your Hydropool dealer can even arrange for your hot tub to
be shipped without a cabinet or with the cabinet packaged
separately for on-site installation. In many cases the smaller
dimensions of a hot tub without a cabinet is all that is
needed to ensure the hot tub can be delivered without wall
or door alterations.
Where the hot tub is being recessed, or a custom deck or
tile is being installed, the cost savings of being able to order
a hot tub without a cabinet is another benefit of choosing
Hydropool.
Indoor installations not only add a unique look and appeal
to your home, they provide the privacy and controlled
climate to ensure that use and enjoyment of your hot tub
is maximized.
If you are considering an indoor location, Hydropool
manufactures certain lower profile models in two pieces
(referred to as ‘split’ models) that can be easily moved into
most tight or difficult access locations and then assembled
on-site by your authorized Hydropool dealer.
If you should choose an indoor location, you will find
further information as outlined in the section
“SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR INSTALLATIONS”
OUTDOOR LOCATIONS
For those who choose an outdoor location, hot tub
operating temperatures can be adjusted to match the
season. In colder months, many owners will operate their
hot tub in the range of 38-40˚C (101 -104˚F). During
warmer months, an operating temperature of 36-37˚C (9799˚F) will provide a refreshing retreat.
If you should choose an outdoor location, you will find
further information as outlined in the section
“SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR OUTDOOR INSTALLATIONS”
For a variety of reasons, outdoor locations are a far more
popular choice. Some of the reasons include:
• Limited indoor space
• Delivery complications due to door openings, stairwells, etc.
• Limited budget (indoor installations usually also involve
interior home renovations)
• Desire for an outdoor entertainment center
• Hot tub is being installed adjacent to an existing or
planned swimming pool
• Concerns over splashing water inside the home
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR…
Indoor InstallationS
Outdoor InstallationS
•When the hot tub is to be installed in a small room
(under 150 ft2/14 m2), we recommend that large units be
fully or partially submerged in-floor so that it does not
dominate the room. This is to allow sufficient headroom
for entry and exit to and from the hot tub
•It is beneficial if the hot tub room is located near wash
room and shower facilities
•The hot tub room should have a floor drain to handle
spillage, a window, outside exhaust fan or humidistat
controlled exhaust fan for ventilation. Where this is not
practical, the use of indoor/outdoor carpeting or a tile
floor and the opening of a window while the hot tub
cover is removed should be sufficient. You should not
have concerns regarding humidity. When the hardcover
is installed, no humidity will escape. During use, the small
amount of humidity released into the room can be
removed with the use of a small dehumidifier
•Consider plumbing a fresh water tap nearby and a
permanent drain location for the hot tub to eliminate
having to use a long garden hose each time you fill or
drain the hot tub
• Always provide adequate ventilation for the support
equipment
• Consult your local dealer for further information
•Contact your local building code department to
determine if a building permit is necessary and for
information on applicable bylaws (distance from property
lines, buildings, fencing requirements, etc.)
•If you are doing any excavating, contact your local gas,
electric, and cable-company to ensure that there are no
underground lines
•Locate the hot tub, where practical, within close distance
of a door to the house, to maximize potential winter use.
•Ensure that your pump(s), controls, drain-valve and
thermal probe are easily accessible and protected
•If possible, locate the hot tub where you will enjoy
some privacy, out of the site of neighbours. If this is not
possible, a partial privacy or wind partition, or proper
placement of the optional Hydropool cover lifter should
provide adequate privacy
The hot tub support equipment is designed for indoor (out
of the direct elements) use. When your HYDROPOOL hot tub
is equipped with a factory-installed cabinet, and installed
as per the guidelines of this manual, the equipment is
adequately protected. If the hot tub is shipped without
a cabinet, your custom cabinet or other structure must
be designed to supply protection for the hot tub support
equipment from rain, snow, splash water, etc., but still
designed in a manner to ensure adequate ventilation.
Site preparation for…
Above-ground Installations
Where the hot tub is a “stand-a-lone” above-ground
installation to be installed in regions where freeze/thaw
conditions may occur, a patio stone or pre-formed
paver type pad may be sufficient if there is no abutting
deck(s) that could be damaged during potential seasonal
movement of the ground. The potential drawback to
this type of base is that splash water could eventually
de-stabilize the ground under the pad, with the resultant
shift of the support base causing damage to the structure.
•Dig out and level the ground 20-30 cm (8-12 in.) below
your desired base level
• Install 10-15 cm (4-6 in.) of crushed stone
• Next, install 10-15 cm (4-6 in.) of poured concrete
• Level the concrete and apply a broom-type finish
•We recommend that the pad be made 15 cm (6 in.) larger
than the hot tub on three sides, and 1 m (3 ft.) larger
on the side where the access steps and/or planters will
be installed
For best results, we suggest the installation of a level
concrete pad:
In regions where freeze/thaw occurs, or where there will
be custom decking abutting the hot tub we recommend
the installation of sono-tubes beneath the pad to prevent
shifting.

INSTALLATIONS
EQUIPMENT ACCESSIBILITY
The equipment must be located in an area where it will
remain dry and will not be exposed to rain, snow or ground
water. The standard Hydropool hot tub has the equipment
installed inside the protective cedar cabinet.
•When your hot tub is to be installed above-ground, the
cabinet is designed for both protection and accessibility
•When your hot tub is to be installed fully or partially
in the ground, if you are relocating the equipment
remotely from the hot tub, or if you have ordered a
hot tub without a cabinet: it is necessary that the
equipment is installed in an area that is dry, protected
from the elements, has proper ventilation and is easily
accessible for service
•Always ensure that the equipment is mounted on a raised
base or platform to prevent water damage to the motor,
equipment or controls
•Ensure that any opening to the equipment and the
working area around the equipment is large enough to
accommodate a service person
For units being installed fully or partially in the ground,
the type of support will again vary based on whether or
not the tub is being installed in an area with freeze/thaw
conditions.
• Non-freezing climates – it is sufficient to ensure that the
base of the hole or cavity created for the tub simply has
a stable, compacted base. The side walls do not need to
be supported, however where the climate permits, should
you choose to backfill directly against the hot tub, a clear
sand backfill is suggested
•Climates where freeze/thaw occurs – it is necessary
that a proper poured concrete base, complete with
sono-tubes, be installed as outlined in the section
ABOVE-GROUND INSTALLATIONS - p.6.
•Areas with a high ground water table – the concrete
base, as well as a concrete or wood retaining wall to hold
back the earth, is suggested. This forms a box or ‘bunker’,
in which the hot tub is placed
•ALWAYS ensure that there is good drainage, via a
properly designed French (gravel) drain system and/or a
sump pump, to prevent ground water flooding damage
to the support equipment or structure
•Install protective waterproof pipe to house any light,
sensor, or topside control cables that could be buried
•Access for future service must be considered at the
time of design and installation. Difficult access can
result in supplemental service labour charges. Consider
easily removable deck materials.
Whenever possible, install the pump below water level
to ensure easy priming. Where above-grade equipment
location is necessary, please ensure that your hot tub is
equipped with the Remote Above-Grade Option Package.
The equipment should be located as close to the hot tub
as possible to maximize jet performance. Where you have
ordered your hot tub with optional remote equipment,
ensure that the equipment is not located more than 5 m.
(15 ft.) from the hot tub. Use only 2 in. flex-pipe or larger
for the pipe runs from the equipment to the hot tub, with
minimal use of elbows or other pipe restrictions.
OVERALL SUPPORT
Your Hydropool hot tub is equipped with a factory
installed load support substructure, which distributes the
weight of the water over the entire foot area of the hot
tub. The cabinet, either factory installed or customized
on-site, should be decorative only, and not relied on for overall
support. Never suspend a hot tub from a deck or floor by
the acrylic lip, as this will lead to product damage and/or
serious personal injury.
Install protective waterproof conduit to house any
applicable cords or line extensions such as the sensor and
top-side control cables, light wires or ozone tubing. In
climates where freeze / thaw occurs we suggest that remote
plumbing lines be buried below the frost line and that
pipe insulation is applied over all pipes that run from
the hot tub to the remote equipment to maintain energy
efficiency.
IN-GROUND INSTALLATIONS
• When recessing the hot tub all or part way below ground level, a concrete base along with a concrete or wood
retaining wall to hold back the earth is suggested. This forms a box or ‘bunker’, in which the hot tub is placed
• Where the climate permits, should you choose to backfill directly against the hot tub, a clear sand backfill is suggested
• Install protective waterproof conduit to house any light, sensor, or topside control cables that could be buried
• ALWAYS ensure that there is adequate drainage via a properly designed gravel drain system and/or a sump pump to
prevent ground water flooding damage to the support equipment
• Access for future service must be considered at the time of design and installation. Difficult access can result in
supplemental service labour charges or damage to your decking

REMOTE EQUIPMENT PLACEMENT
• All piping should be insulated to minimize heat loss, and
reduce the risk of freezing
• Equipment should be installed at or below water level.
•All control cables should be run through a protective pipe
to avoid problems associated with ground settling, frost, etc.
• All support equipment MUST be weather protected, yet
still have adequate ventilation
Where the support equipment is being located in a remote
location, the following should be considered:
• The distance from the hot tub should never exceed
5 m. (15 ft.) of pipe length
• Piping diameter must be 5.08 cm (2 in.) with minimal use
of elbows
UNLOADING / HANDLING YOUR HOT TUB
All Hydropool hot tubs are shipped with a protective
combination layer of bubble wrap, cardboard and plastic
film. Each hot tub is factory strapped onto a wood skid. If
your hot tub is to be delivered by your local dealer, it will
generally arrive on a flat bed truck or low profile trailer.
Most dealers are equipped with the necessary equipment
to maneuver the hot tub from the truck to the dolly
or cart that will be used to move your hot tub to the
installation location.
Most Hydropool models require a clearance width of at
least 100 cm. (39 in.) to allow movement of the unit (on its
side) through alley-ways, fence openings, etc. Where this is
not possible, the use of a crane to lift the hot tub from the
truck or trailer over the house to the patio or yard is often
a simple and economical option.
•Do not move or place the hot tub on the
side where the equipment is located as
damage could occur
•Never roll or flip the hot tub end over end
as the cabinet could be damaged
•Never lift or handle the hot tub by the
plumbing
• Make sure that there is sufficient assistance to gently
slide the hot tub off the dolly or cart to the support base
without any damage
Should your hot tub arrive in a common closed box trailer,
it may be necessary to arrange with a local towing company
for a tilt and load tow truck, with a pulley winch system,
to pull the skid from the larger trailer to the lower profile
tow truck flat bed. The hot tub can be gently slid off the
low profile trailer and positioned on its side on a cart or
dolly.
UNLOADING / HANDLING YOUR HOT TUB CONTINUED
LEVELING YOUR HYDROPOOL HOT TUB
After the hot tub is properly positioned on the support base,
the entire unit should be checked with a level and shimmed
as necessary. Should you find that the support base is sloped
or otherwise uneven, level your hot tub using TAPERED
wood shims where necessary, ensuring that the tapered
end extends at least 61 cm (24 in.) under the unit. This
will insure contact with the support substructure to
appropriately distribute the weight of the unit. Do not
just shim under the cabinet base outside edge, as this will
cause structural stress on the unit, potentially causing
unwarrantable damage to the hot tub structure and /or
shell.
GENERAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
aYour HYDROPOOL Hot tub is self-supporting on its
base. The cabinet should be decorative only, not for
support. Never suspend the hot tub from the deck or
cabinet.
bWhere the hot tub is not equipped with a factory
installed cabinet, it is the installing electrician’s
responsibility to ensure all electrical equipment is
weather protected.
cAlways provide adequate access for servicing the
support equipment.
dDecking should be constructed to allow repair access
around the entire hot tub.
eIn remote equipment or no-cabinet installations, you
may add extra insulation, but the equipment area must
have adequate cross-flow ventilation.
7Installation of a safety grab rail or reachable support
for use when entering or exiting the hot tub is
recommended.
8The hot tub equipment and all electrical plugs, outlets
and lights within 1.5m (5ft) of the unit must be G.F.C.I
protected. Consult your electrician or local electrical
authority for further details.
9Access to the hot tub must always be secured:
Outdoors - in accordance with local property by-laws
and/or via an approved fence with a self-closing gate
and a safety hardcover; Indoors - by a lockable door and
a safety hardcover.
10A nearby garden hose connection is recommended for
filling and “topping up” the hot tub.
Your HYDROPOOL Hot tub is a self-contained pre-plumbed
unit, so that no on-site plumbing connections to the
residential water supply or drain are required. Simply place
the hot tub in the desired location and install as outlined
on the following pages.
IMPORTANT NOTES
1 Do not lift the hot tub by the plumbing, you may cause leaks.
2 Your hot tub can be installed above grade, in the floor
or ground, or half-and-half.
3Ensure that your HYDROPOOL hot tub is properly
supported by either a level concrete pad, or a properly
constructed deck capable of supporting 1220 kg/m2 (250
lbs./ft.2). If there is a possibility that the pad could shift
by freezing/thawing ground movement (such as in clay
regions, and/or areas with high water tables) sono-tubes
extending below the frost line should be used.
4 Decking should be chosen and constructed in a manner
that minimizes the chance of slipping or falling.
5 Level your hot tub using wood shims where necessary,
ensuring that the tapered end extends at least 61 cm (24 in.)
under the unit.
6 If you do not have a factory installed foamed cabinet, it
is assumed that you are building your own custom
cabinet, tiling or decking. Please consider the following:

If you received the optional waterfall package, remove the blade from the waterfall receiver fitting in the hot tub (already
installed at the factory). Insert the waterfall blade through the front of the special waterfall pillow. The front flange of
the waterfall blade will be recessed into the front of the pillow. If it is not recessed, the blade needs to be removed and
re-inserted through the opposite side of the pillow. Push the pillow into the semi-circular recess, ensuring that the portion
of the blade protruding out of the back of the pillow inserts firmly into the waterfall receiver fitting.

• Mode 2 – Freeze mode, freezes on selected colour blend from above mode (gives unlimited colour blend selection)
• Mode 3 – solid colour blue
• Mode 4 – solid colour green
• Mode 5 – solid colour red
• Mode 6 – solid white (simulated)
For systems with optional Galaxy light package:
• Mode 7 – Galaxy lights OFF; interior lights ON
• Mode 8 – Galaxy lights ON; interior lights OFF
LED Light Housing Access
In the rare event that access is required to service the LED light, drain spa water below light housing, and with the special
tool provided, unthread the front of the housing counter-clockwise to gain access. Installation is reverse of removal.
SAFETY HARDCOVER LOCKS
The safety hard cover is designed to open away from the control area, however, if the hot tub is symmetrical in dimension,
the cover can be oriented to open in either direction. Simply place the cover on the hot tub, pull the straps down so that
they are fully extended, then release slightly so that there is approximately 6 mm (1/4 in.) of slack. Mark the position on
the cabinet, and fasten the receiver clip with the screws provided. Always ensure the safety hard cover is in place and
locked whenever the hot tub is not being used.
OPTIONAL COVER REMOVER
Hydropool offers several different devices to assist in the removal of the safety hard
cover. Please refer to the instructions supplied with your particular cover remover
for installation. For further information, contact your local Hydropool dealer.

FILLING, CHECKING AND STARTING YOUR HOT TUB
Although your hot tub was thoroughly water-tested in the factory, some loosening of fittings can occur during
shipping. Before any decking, tiling or carpeting is completed around the installation, fill and operate your hot tub to test
for leaks (this ensures easy access and inexpensive correction). Check all union connections and plumbing for minor leaks.
In the event of a leak, ensure all union connections, pump plugs are tight and o-rings/gaskets are in place.
•Fill the hot tub to the recommended level, approximately
19 mm (3/4“) from the top of the skimmer opening.
•Visually check all union connections pump plugs
and plumbing for minor leaks. In the event of a leak,
ensure all union connections and pump plugs are tight
and o-rings/gaskets are in place.
• Before applying voltage to power-up your hot tub, it
is very important that you understand the sequence of
events that occur when the system is activated in order
that the pump can be primed efficiently and damage to
the system can be avoided.

Level
•When adding water for the first time, the hot tub should
be filled through the skimmer opening (helps to prevent
air locks) using a standard garden hose, turning the tap on
slowly to prevent damage to the surface by a jerking hose
connection.
• If the hot tub pump is located below water level, the water
should start circulating immediately. If the motor works
but you do not notice water circulation within the first 15
seconds, the pump may require priming due to trapped air
(referred to as an ‘air lock’). To prime, open the hose-bib
to allow trapped air to escape. Close as soon as the water
flow from the jets becomes regular. If the pumps have not
primed after 2 minutes, and water is not flowing from
the jets, DO NOT allow the pumps to continue to run.
Turn power off at the main house panel (or GFCI) and
try releasing the air again by loosening the union on the
discharge side of the pump(s) while the motor is not
running. Turn the power back on. If the pumps do not
prime after 15 seconds, sometimes momentarily turning
the pump(s) off and on will help the system to prime
(note: do not do this more than 5 times).
•Pull up the handles on the intake and return gate valves Important: Under NO circumstances should the pump(s)
(handles are pulled up when valves are open and pushed be allowed to operate without priming beyond 5
minutes, as this may not only cause unwarrantable
down when valves are closed).

TEMPERATURE CONTROL FUNCTIONALITY
AND ADJUSTMENT
After you manually exit or the system automatically exits
Priming Mode, your hot tub will automatically heat to
the factory preset default temperature of 38˚C (100˚F) The
topside panel will briefly show the default temperature, and
then the display will appear as follows:
INITIAL START-UP
Before applying voltage to power-up your hot tub, it is very
important that you understand the sequence of events that
occur when the system is activated in order that the pump
can be primed efficiently and damage to the system can be
avoided.
Note that the water temperature is not
yet displayed, as the system requires
approximately 2 minutes of water flow
through the heater to determine temperature. This is
referred to as ‘polling’ and is indicated on the display by the
icon. After 2 minutes the display will show the current
measured water temperature
At initial power-up, this display will appear,
and the system will show 4 sets of
numbers in succession (ie. 100 then 103
then 15 then 240). These numbers represent the current
software revision, and the system input voltage.
Press the
pad to increase the
temperature to the desired setting. The Heat
indicator light on the Topside Panel will
shimmer for 90 seconds, indicating that the system is not
yet heating, then will illuminate solidly to indicate that the
heater circuit has been energized and the spa water is being
heated.
After the initial software indicators are
shown, this display will appear. This display
is indicating that the system is in pump
Priming Mode. This mode will last for 4 to 5 minutes
before automatically exiting and entering the normal
operation mode. You can also manually exit pump Priming
Mode after the pump is primed.
The system automatically activates Pump 1 low speed
every 30 minutes for at least 2 minutes. After 2 minutes,
the spa water temperature is determined. At this point, if
the water temperature is lower than the set temperature,
P1 will continue to run and the Heat indicator light on
the Topside Panel will illuminate. The heater will operate
until the water temperature reaches the set temperature
point, after which, both the heater and Pump 1 low will
automatically turn off.
While in this mode, the heater circuit is disabled to allow
the priming process to be completed without the possibility
of energizing the heater element during low flow or no flow
conditions. The system will not automatically activate any
of the functions, however, by pushing the
pad on the
topside control, the pump can be manually activated.
Definition: ‘Priming’ a pump is a term used to describe
the process in which air trapped in the plumbing
and pump wet-end (referred to as an ‘air lock‘)
is released, allowing the pump to move water
efficiently through the plumbing system and to
the jets.
To Check/Change the Set Temperature
The last measured temperature is constantly
displayed on the topside panel. When this
pad is pressed once any time during normal
operation, the display will show the set temperature for
3 seconds. Press this pad a second time to increase or

operation mode. You can also manually exit pump Priming
Mode after the pump is primed.
The system automatically activates Pump 1 low speed
every 30 minutes for at least 2 minutes. After 2 minutes,
the spa water temperature is determined. At this point, if
the water temperature is lower than the set temperature,
P1 will continue to run and the Heat indicator light on
the Topside Panel will illuminate. The heater will operate
until the water temperature reaches the set temperature
point, after which, both the heater and Pump 1 low will
automatically turn off.
While in this mode, the heater circuit is disabled to allow
the priming process to be completed without the possibility
of energizing the heater element during low flow or no flow
conditions. The system will not automatically activate any
of the functions, however, by pushing the
pad on the
topside control, the pump can be manually activated.
Definition: ‘Priming’ a pump is a term used to describe
the process in which air trapped in the plumbing
and pump wet-end (referred to as an ‘air lock‘)
is released, allowing the pump to move water
efficiently through the plumbing system and to
the jets.
To Check/Change the Set Temperature
The last measured temperature is constantly
displayed on the topside panel. When this
pad is pressed once any time during normal
operation, the display will show the set temperature for
3 seconds. Press this pad a second time to increase or
decrease the set temperature. To change the direction of the
temperature settings (ie. lower vs. raise the temperature),
allow the display to revert back to the current water
temperature then press the
pad again.
PUMP PRIMING MODE
As soon as ‘PR’ is indicated on the topside
panel, push the
pad to start Pump 1
in low speed, then again to switch to high
speed to facilitate priming. See FILLING, CHECKING AND
STARTING YOUR HOT TUB - p. 15 for complete instructions
on pump priming.
Once pump priming has been successfully completed, press
the
pad to turn off the pump.
Next, manually exit Priming Mode by pressing the
pad. If you do not manually exit Priming Mode, it will
automatically terminate after 4 to 5 minutes. Be sure that
the pump is primed before exiting this mode.
The temperature can be adjusted from 21˚C (70˚F) to
40˚C (104˚F) in 1˚ increments.

JET WATER FLOW ADJUSTMENT
All Hydropool hot tubs are shipped from the factory with
the jets in the open position.
Your Hydropool hot tub features adjustable water flow on
specific hydrotherapy jets.
Interchanging jet inserts
A great feature for custom tailoring the jets in your Hydropool
hot tub to suit your personal hydrotherapy needs. Jets of like
size and dimension may be interchanged with each other, for
example, if you wished to swap a standard pulsator jet for a
standard adjustable blaster jet, or a medium pulsator jet for a
medium adjustable jet.
To reduce the flow: grasp the outer flange of the jet, and
turn clockwise approximately a 1/4 turn. When it hits
the stop, the jet is considered closed, and flow will be
restricted.
To increase the flow: from the closed position, turn the jet
counter-clockwise approximately 1/4 turn. When it hits the
stop, the jet is open, and there is maximum jet flow. Do not
attempt to turn the jet past the stop, as this will unthread
the jet internal from the socket.
JET AIR FLOW ADJUSTMENT
Your Hydropool hot tub features adjustable air flow on
specific hydrotherapy jets.
To reduce the flow: turn the handle on the air control
clockwise. When it hits the stop, the air is closed, and
air flow will be restricted.
To increase the flow: turn the handle on the air control
counter-clockwise. When it hits the stop, the air control is
fully opened.
For maximum operating efficiency, the air controls must
remain closed when your hot tub is not in use.
33
Jet Insert removal & Replacement
Poly/mini storm directional & twin roto
Power storm massage & twin roto
To Remove:
• Turn the jet conter-clockwise to unclip & pull out of socket.
To Re-install: ­
• Push the jet into the socket until it snaps into place, ensuring the
square pin on the back of the jet lines-up with the groove in the
socket flange.
DIVERTER VALVE
When your HYDROPOOL hot tub is equipped with a diverter valve,
it allows you to direct the flow of the water so that it increases the
power of the jets on the CAPTAINS CHAIR or on the LOUNGER, or a
combination of the two. Simply turn the valve left or right.
TURN
Always: return the valve handle to the middle position before
exiting the hot tub to ensure that there is air and water flow
to the ozone jet and ice bucket/filter niche drains for proper
performance.
WATERFALL CONTROL optional
If your hot tub was ordered with the optional waterfall feature, then you will have a waterfall flow control valve. The
waterfall feature was designed to provide a gentle cascade of water over the neck and shoulder area. Simply turn the top
of the control clockwise for more water flow, and counterclockwise for less water flow.

* About National Television Broadcast Standards:
Currently, the world is divided into three Standards that are
not compatible: NTSC, PAL and SECAM
Why are there three Standards or systems?
Basically, television was ‘invented’ at different times in various parts of the world (U.S., U.K. and France). Politics dictated
which system would be employed as the national Standard in these countries. At the time these TV Broadcast Systems were
established, there was no consideration given to the rise of the ‘Global Communications Age’ in which we live today, where
information is exchanged electronically as easily as having a conversation with a friend.

HOT TUB WATER BALANCE – GENERAL OVERVIEW
NOTABLE POINTS
•It is also very important that Total Alkalinity (the ability
of the water to resist a change in pH) be maintained in
the recommended range as indicated in the chart on the
following page.
• Although there may be two identical hot tub models
right next door to each other, the maintenance requirements will be different, dependant on such factors as:
– bather load
– frequency of use/quantity of bathers
– different body chemistry
– sun vs. shade
– temperature
•The reliability and longevity of your hot tub support
equipment are directly related to how well water
quality is maintained!
•ALWAYS observe and follow the instructions on the
chemical container.
•The small volume of water in your hot tub is easily
affected by external factors such as oils, lotions,
perspiration and chemicals. It is imperative that you give
your hot tub regular attention to maintain clean, safe
and balanced water to prevent premature damage and/or
failure (corrosion/calcification) to the electrical support
equipment. Maintaining your hot tub water balance/
chemistry, while simple, is extremely important. Neglected
hot water will allow bacteria to quickly spread.
•The mineral content of hot tub water increases from
water evaporation, sanitizers and other chemicals. If the
mineral concentration, particularly calcium, becomes too
high, the minerals will literally “drop” or precipitate out
of the water and deposit on the hot tub walls, plumbing,
jets, in the filter and on the heater element.
•It is very important that pH be checked frequently and
maintained in the recommended range as indicated
in the chart water balance summary for your
Hot Tub - p. 57
For these reasons, it is very important to develop proper
hot tub water maintenance habits and follow your
dealers recommended water maintenance procedures.
Your Hydropool dealer will advise you as to what method
they recommend.
Heater and other component failure due
to improperly maintained pH or Total
Alkalinity levels will not be covered
under warranty.
Surface Cleaning
Built-in bottom floor cleaner eliminates small
debris fro­m settling on the hot tub floor and
allows pump assisted quick draining.

GLOSSARY OF COMMON WATER MAINTENANCE TERMS
1CHLORINE – in granular, liquid or puck/tablet form, is an oxidant and biocidal agent. It is very effective and fast acting.
Recommended chlorine residual level is 3.0 to 5.0 ppm.
2CHLORAMINES – a compound formed when chlorine combines with nitrogen or ammonia present in the water. When
allowed to go unchecked, it causes eye and skin irritation and is indicated by a strong chlorine odour.
3ONE-PART BROMINE – also available in puck/tablet form, is another type of oxidant/biocidal agent, and is introduced
into the hot tub water via a brominator. Recommended bromine residual level is 3.0 to 5.0 ppm
4TWO-PART BROMINE – composed of a liquid or powder component introduced manually into the water on a weekly
basis, and a granular component that is added daily or as the hot tub is used.
5BROMAMINES – are formed when bromine destroys nitrogen-bearing organic matter. Unlike chloramines, bromamines
don’t cause eye irritation, however, when allowed to go unchecked, will cause an objectionable odour.
6SHOCK – the practice of adding an oxidizing agent to hot tub water to destroy ammonia, nitrogenous and organic
contaminants (chloramines and bromamines)
7pH – a logarithmic value expressing the relative acidity or basicity of a substance (such as hot tub water) as indicated
by the hydrogen ion concentration. pH is expressed as a number on a scale of 0 to 14, where 0 is most acidic, 1 to 7
being acidic, 7 considered neutral, 7 to 14 being basic, and 14 being most basic. The ideal range for hot tub water is
7.4 to 7.6 ppm
8 pH INCREASER – raises the pH level of the water.
9 pH DECREASER – lowers the pH level of the water.
10TOTAL ALKALINITY (TA) – the amount of carbonate, bicarbonate and hydroxide compounds present in the water that
determines the ability or capacity of the water to resist change in pH. Also known as the ‘buffering’ capacity.
11 ALKALINITY BOOSTER – raises the alkalinity.
12CALCIUM HARDNESS – the calcium portion of the total alkalinity which represents 70 to 75% of total hardness.
Calcium concentrations determine whether water is ‘soft’ - too little calcium, or ‘hard’ -too much calcium.
13CALCIUM BOOSTER – increases the calcium level.
14TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS (TDS) – a measure of the total amount of dissolved matter in the water (calcium, carbonates,
bicarbonates, magnesium, metallic compounds, etc.)
15SEQUESTERANTS (STAIN AND SCALE CONTROLLERS) – keeps dissolved metals and minerals in the water from
attacking the hot tub shell and support equipment components.
16DEFOAMER – removes foam build-up from the water surface. At best, this is a temporary remedy, as excessive foam is
merely a symptom of improper water balance (typically high organic residue and/or high pH).
17CARTRIDGE FILTER CLEANER – degreases and cleans cartridge filters.
18OZONATOR – generates Ozone (a gaseous molecule composed of 3 atoms of oxygen) and is injected into the hot tub
water for the oxidation of water contaminants.
19TEST KIT – used to monitor specific chemical residual or demands in the water. May be in the form of litmus strips or
liquid drops.
20PPM – abbreviation for ‘parts per million’, the unit of measurement used in chemical testing which indicates the parts
by weight in relation to one million parts by weight of water. Essentially identical to the term mg/L - milligrams per
liter.

Signs of Improper Water Balance
FOAMING
Foaming is caused by the agitation of total dissolved solids
(TDS). This can be caused by the buildup of too much chemical
by-product in the spa water, people not showering before
using the hot tub, body lotions, etc. To correct, add a small
amount of foam eliminator and turn on jets to circulate
the water. At best, this is a temporary remedy, as excessive
foam is merely a symptom of improper water balance. In extreme
cases, the water will require draining and the filter will require
cleaning.
CLOUDY WATER
Cloudy water can be caused by:
• high total dissolved solids (TDS) thereby requiring full or
partial water drainage
• a low sanitizer level
• incorrect pH requiring balancing
• suspended particles necessitating a filter cleaning
• insufficient filtration time
SKIN IRRITATION
Most skin irritation is caused by too high or too low pH.
Test and adjust. Where irritation continues, consult your
physician.
Corona Discharge Ozone Technology
All Hydropool hot tubs are factory prepared
to accommodate ozonators. The Hydropool
Corona Discharge Ozonator is regarded as
the most technologically advanced system
on the market, allowing longer contact
time with the hot tub water resulting in
reduced chemical consumption and clearer,
cleaner water.

The
Benefits are:
• Better water quality
• Less Chemical Purchases
• Less water maintenance
• A more pleasant hot
tub experience
Hydropool’s unique ozone injection system both maximizes the
dispersion of the ozone gas and decreases the bubble size resulting in
longer contact with the water and increased water quality and purity.
The ozone/water mixture is sent down a series of tubes where the ozone is
“broken down” into even smaller bubbles before being re-mixed with the water
reducing the “off-gassing” commonly found with other ozone systems.

A
on the label of the chemical
container to determine the
correct ratios
1Soak your filter cartridge in a filter cartridge cleaning
solution. Rinse thoroughly and, if possible, allow to dry
before re-installing. Hydropool recommends purchasing a
second filter so that while the first is cleaning, the other
is clean and ready to install.
INITIAL FILL
QUARTERLY
1 Make sure the hot tub water is circulating.
2Add a sequesterant (stain and scale controller). Allow
water to circulate for an hour before adding anything
else to the hot tub water.
3 Add a Shock / oxidizing agent .
4Add sanitizing tablets (Bromine or Chlorine) to the dispenser:
• Built in dispenser: if your Hydropool
hot tub was ordered with the
optional built in bromine/chlorine
dispenser, (located in the lid of the
cartridge filter housing), refer to
section CARTRIDGE FILTER for details on
removing and re-installing the lid. Once
the filter lid is removed, you’ll notice a
clear 2.5 cm (1”) diameter tube extending from the bottom of the lid. Unscrew

CHEMICAL SAFETY HINTS
•Never pre-mix chemicals with each other prior to adding
to hot tub water.
• Add only one chemical to the water at a time.
• Always add chemicals to water and not vice-versa.
•Chemicals may be corrosive, so handle with care and store in a cool dark place.
• Never smoke near chemicals as most are flammable
•Ensure any spilled chemicals are carefully cleaned up
immediately.
•Always have the Poison Control telephone number
handy in the event of an emergency.
• Keep chemicals out of children‘s reach
• Wear safety glasses and gloves when handling chemicals.
CLEANING THE SKIMMER BASKET
1 Activate the standby/drain assist mode
2Remove the skimmer basket by pulling the weir door
forward, and pulling the basket up and towards the
front.
3Remove debris from basket. (Note: Avoid hitting the
basket against objects to knock debris loose as this may
damage the unit).
4 Reinsert basket.
5Take the system out of standby/drain assist mode, and
as the pump begins to operate, monitor water flow over
the weir door to assure that it is free floating.
The tablets will dissolve slowly over a 10-14 day period,
depending on dial setting, and use of the hot tub.
5 Test pH and Total Alkalinity and adjust accordingly.
DAILY
1 Test water, and if necessary, add shock.
2 Ensure proper water level is maintained.
WEEKLY
1 Test pH and Alkalinity. Adjust accordingly.
2 Top-up chemical dispenser.
3 Add sequesterant (stain and scale controller).
4Remove and spray cartridge filter with garden hose and
re-install (see section CARTRIDGE FILTER - p. 60).
5Remove and clean out skimmer basket (see section
CLEANING THE SKIMMER BASKET).
6 Add Shock / oxidizing agent.
59
CARTRIDGE FILTER
The cartridge should be cleaned every two to four weeks,
depending on the amount of use. Signs that the filter
requires cleaning include:
• Reduced jet power
• Hazy gray water
• Rattling noise in the pump or filter
• Heater not working
Removal
1 Activate the standby/drain assist mode.
2 Remove the cosmetic lid and open the small, black air
vent/bleeder valve on the top of the filter lid.
3 Press down the lock tab to disengage and turn the
locking ring counter clockwise.
4 Pull the filter lid upwards, and lift the cartridge element
straight up and out of filter housing.
Cleaning
5 With a garden hose and spray nozzle, hose off the cartridge
element, ensuring to carefully separate every pleat.
6 To remove collected lotions, body oils, etc. soak the
cartridge in warm water and a filter cleaning/emulsifying CLEANING THE ACRYLIC SURFACE
The acrylic surface can be cleaned and polished using a
compound (available at your HYDROPOOL dealer).
7 A cleaning cylinder may be purchased from your soft cloth and acrylic cleaner, available at your Hydropool
dealer.

between pleats with a fine paint-brush to remove
remaining dirt particles.
SAFETY HARD COVERS
Do not use a wire brush or other
devise to clean cartridge element. Do not
put in dishwasher or washing machine.
When a hot tub is uncovered, over 90% of heat is lost
from the water surface. This evaporation also affects the
chemical balance and could create humidity problems
indoors. HYDROPOOL Safety Hard Covers are engineered
for maximum thermal efficiency and appearance. They
are hinged in the middle for easier handling, and the zip
fastener allows the tapered foam inserts to be changed
if damaged. The skirt of the safety hard cover hugs the
lip of the hot tub for a tight fit. The handles are placed
so that even one person can easily carry a large cover.
The locks, with one part fastened to the deck or skirt,
prevent small children or animals from entering the hot
tub. Do not drag the safety hard cover across the hot tub or
decking. Fold the cover first, then lift by the handles.
Standing on the hardcover could cause the tapered foam
inserts to crack, which will lead to water absorption.
Re-installation
11Place the cartridge filter back into the filter housing.
12Replace the filter housing lid, pushing it down to seat,
ensuring that the lid o-ring does not become twisted.
13Hydropool recomends that the lid o-ring be lubricated
with a non-petroleum based lubricant (ie. Silicone gel)
when it becomes dry. This will help to prevent
twisting and pinching as the lid is installed, and
significantly increase longevity of the o-ring.
14Install the filter lock-ring, turning clockwise until the lock
tab snaps into place.
15Close the air vent/bleeder valve.
16Take the system out of standby/drain assist mode.
NEVER LEAN OR STAND ON YOUR HARDCOVER.
17When the pump starts circulating on low speed, it will be necessary to release trapped air in the filter. Carefully The cover should be cleaned at least twice a year with a

hissing sound of air escaping. Once there is a steady
stream of water, close the vent valve, ensuring that the
o-ring does not become pinched.

CHANGING THE HOT TUB WATER
11 To completely flush the old water from the plumbing
lines: allow fresh water to fill into the foot-well area
while the old water continues to be pumped out.
Always keep at least 10cm (4 in.) of water in the
foot-well so that pump 1 remains primed.
12 When the water from the drain hose turns clear
(indicating fresh fill water), flush is complete.
13 Turn off the low speed pump.
14 Close the drain-hose bib on the hot tub plumbing line
and continue filling hot tub with fresh water.
15 Place cover on hot tub (to avoid splash-out).
16 Open pump 1 return gate valve.
17 Press any button on the topside control panel (other
than the pump 1 button) to take the system out of
Standby/drain assist mode. Pump 1 low speed and
the heater will activate to circulate and heat the water
while filling continues. This also reduces the possibility
of an airlock occuring.
18 Continue adding fresh fill water until level is
approximately 19mm (3/4 in.) from the top of the
skimmer opening.
19 Once fill is complete, remove the #10 rubber expansion
plug from the bottom of the skimmer housing.*
20 If the filter housing was opened to replace the cartridge
filter, it will be nessesary to release trapped air from the
filter housing by carefully loosening the small black air
vent valve located on the top of the filter housing.
When water begins to escape close the air vent valve.
21 In the unlikely event of a pump air lock (pump 1 is
operating but there is no water movement from the
jets), refer to section PUMP PRIMING/RELEASING AN
AIR LOCK - p. 15
A hot tub should be drained every 8-12 weeks, depending
on size and amount of use. If your hot tub is used daily or
by a large number of bathers, the water should be drained
more often. One method to determine the approximate
length of time between water changes is to divide the
water volume (in liters) of your hot tub by 13.5 and then
divide by the average number of bathers each day.

9 Monitor the hot tub while it drains.
10 Use the second garden hose to wash down interior
surface as the hot tub continues to drain. A sponge may
also be used to wipe down the interior surface.
Important: Do not use detergents - the remaining
residues will adversely affect water chemistry, making it
difficult to maintain proper water balance.
Do Not use abrasive cleaners - damage to the
acrylic surface will occur.

GAZEBOS
If you are mounting, or planning to mount a gazebo over the top of your hot tub, it is critical to ensure that Hydropool
is aware of this, as extra supports may be necessary. Otherwise, it will be necessary for your installer to add the extra
supports where required.
PROTECTING YOUR CABINET WOOD FINISH
HYDROPOOL hot tub cabinets are made from Western cedar
and are factory stained. Once stained, cedar weathers well,
and with proper care will maintain its beauty for many
years.
Cetol 23 #078 or an equivalent polyurethane or marine
varathane with UV inhibitors is highly recommended. These
protective finishes stabilize the wood grain and build
a durable, breathable water-repellent barrier between
the wood surface and the elements. These products are
available from your local building supply center.
For a protective translucent finish and to enhance the
wood grain beauty, Sikkens Cetol 01 #077 stain and Sikkens
Cabinet Wing-Locks
The high quality wing-locks provided on your Hydropool
Hot Tub cabinet not only firmly secure the equipment
access panel, they also serve as convenient handles for
removal and replacement. In order to maintain optimum
performance and extended life, Hydropool recommends
lubricating twice annually with a silicone based lubricant.
Recommended product: Super-Lube silicone based
lubricant (or equivalent). Available at major retailers.
Caution: Do not use a petroleum based lubricant, as this will cause premature
deterioration of the lock seal.

WINTERIZING YOUR HYDROPOOL HOT TUB
In the event that you do not wish to use your hot tub
year-round, it is very important that you properly winterize
to protect against damage from freezing. Your HYDROPOOL
dealer can perform such a service for a nominal fee. If you
choose to winterize your hot tub yourself, please follow the
directions outlined below:
• Cover exposed plumbing connections with plastic bags
and duct tape.
• Where practical, disconnect hot tub support equipment
and store in a dry heated area.
• Install the safety hardcover, and cover the entire hot tub
with a tarp to prevent premature weathering of the cabinet
and the safety hard cover.
• Remove snow build up regularly to prevent damage to the
safety hard cover.
• It is assumed that your HYDROPOOL hot tub has been
properly installed on a reinforced concrete pad to
eliminate lifting of the hot tub due to hydrostatic ground
water pressure.
• Drain the hot tub entirely see section - DRAINING YOUR
HOT TUB - p. 54.
• Remove and clean the cartridge filter element see
section - CARTRIDGE FILTER - p.53.
• Using a wet/dry utility vacuum, remove remaining water
from the jet openings, filter cartridge housing, and footwell.
• Either pour or use a turkey-baster where necessary to
add potable biodegradable RV antifreeze to areas such
as pump wet end, jet channels, filter housing, blower
channels. Do not use automotive antifreeze.
• Add potable RV antifreeze to the holes in the bottom
suction/drain to prevent any trapped water in the false
floor from freezing and damaging the hot tub shell.
• Turn pump on for only a few seconds to circulate the
antifreeze.
• Unthread and disconnect all unions in the support
equipment area. Remove lowest winter drain plug
on pump face plate. Repeat for all pumps, where
applicable.
If you are not 100% confident that
your hot tub is properly winterized, please
consult your authorized HYDROPOOL Hot
Tub dealer. Caution recommends that an
authorized Hydropool Dealer winterize
your hot tub in the initial year. Damage
as a result of freezing is not covered by
the warranty.

GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING Continued
WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF...
…Power Failure or sYstem fault during
Cold Weather Conditions
…POWER FLUCTUATIONS
The power supply into your home is, for the most part, fairly
consistent. However, when local power demand is high,
there is a tendency for the voltage entering your home to
drop (sometimes significantly) or fluctuate. This condition is
referred to as a ‘brown-out’. Although safeguards have been
built into the system to protect against this condition, supply
voltage may drop low enough, if even for a second, to cause
the system to display a ‘ghost’ message. Should this occur
or if the display shows partial messages, try resetting the
system by turning power to the hot tub off, waiting a few
minutes, then turning power on again. If this does not reset the
system, contact your local dealer or service organization.
If your control system will not reset, (ie. GFCI trips) or if your
pump will not circulate for any other reason, place a low
wattage space heater or hair dryer under the cabinet in the
equipment area. This will delay the risk of freezing while
a service appointment is scheduled.
