The eight jets provide a relaxing massage to sooth away stress, and the strength of the water massage can be adjusted by the air control. The hydrotherapy spa holds 200 gallons of water and offers a heating system (70¡F to 104¡F) and a filtration system. TESTING AND TREATING THE WATER The hydrotherapy spa comes with a starter chemical pack for maintaining the water in the spa. Disregard the directions on the individual packages of ÒQUICK pHix It DOWNÓ and ÒQUICK pHix It UP.Ó However, the directions on the bottle of ÒNon-chlorine ShoxÓ and ÒBromine BaseÓ are correct. Always keep the chemicals away from children and pets. The guidelines below explain how to properly use the hydrotherapy spa. Follow these guidelines to maintain the hydrotherapy spa for your long-term enjoyment. The first time you use the spa, you should test and treat the water. You must also treat the water each time you refill the spa. Once you have verified that the spa is functioning properly, and have allowed the water to circulate for a while, you should remove the spa cover and add 1/3 of the ÒBromine BaseÓ bottle, and 1/3 of the ÒNon-chlorine ShoxÓ bottle to the water in the spa. Allow the water to circulate for five minutes. You should now test the pH level of the water by using the included test strips. Refer to the test strip packaging for instructions on using the test strips. The pH reading should be between 7.2 and 7.8. PLUGGING IN THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA Once the hydrotherapy spa is filled with water, the power cord can be plugged in and the spa can be turned on. Note: The first time the power cord is plugged in, the spa will turn on automatically. When connecting the power cord, plug the power cord directly into a grounded circuit capable of carrying 15 or more amps. No other appliance should be on the same circuit. Replace the power cord immediately if it becomes damaged. If the level is too low, add half of one of the ÒQUICK pHix It UPÓ packets to the water. Let the water circulate through the spa for five minutes. Test the pH level again. Repeat until the pH level is correct. The power cord is equipped with a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), located at the end of the power cord. You should always test the GFCI before using the hydrotherapy spa. If the level is too high, add half of one of the ÒQUICK pHix It DOWNÓ packets to the water. Let the water circulate through the spa for five minutes. Test the pH level again. Repeat until the pH level is correct. Grounded circuit capable of carrying 15 or more amps See WATER CHEMISTRY on page 14 for information concerning proper water maintenance. Test and Reset Buttons STARTING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA Once you have tested the GFCI, you should verify the water flow from the pumping unit. Set the air control on the console to the lowest setting (see USING THE CONSOLE on page 12). The pumping unit will heat the water as it pumps. Cover the hydrotherapy spa with the spa cover. The spa cover must be tight (see SECURING THE SPA COVER on page 11). The water will heat at about 1.8¡F an hour with the cover on. If you are using the hydrotherapy spa indoors, and the room temperature is maintained at 70¡F, it will take approximately 18 to 22 hours for the water to reach the set temperature. GFCI First, turn on the hydrotherapy spa by pressing the On/Off Switch on the console. Once the unit is running, press the GFCI ÒtestÓ button. The hydrotherapy spa should shut off. Press the ÒresetÓ button. The hydrotherapy spa should resume normal operation. If the hydrotherapy spa continues to run after the ÒtestÓ button is pressed, then the GFCI is damaged. Do not use the hydrotherapy spa until the GFCI has been repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician. The temperature and water flow can be set or changed by the controls on the console (see USING THE CONSOLE on page 12). 10 Spa Shell Diagram D B C A SPA OPERATION SECURING THE SPA COVER Refer to the diagram above. The function of each component is explained below. The spa cover can be secured by snapping the latches on the spa cover into the buckles on the side panels. The suction vents (A) located near the floor of the spa bring the water into the pump in order to operate the system. The suction covers should always be in place over the suction vents. Never operate the spa without the suction covers in place. Latch Key The buckles can be locked by inserting the Buckle key and turning it clockwise a quarter turn. To unlock the buckles, insert the key and turn it counterclockwise a quarter turn. The filter (B) can be removed for replacement and cleaning (see CHECKING AND CLEANING THE FILTER on page 13). The temperature probe (C) reads the current water temperature. Always keep the buckles locked when the spa is not in use. Keep the keys in a safe place, out of the reach of children. Use of the console (D) is explained on page 12 of this manual. The hydrotherapy spa offers an automatic freeze protection. If the water temperature falls below 40ûF, the pump will begin circulating the water to prevent the water from freezing. 11 Console Diagram Air Control Thermostat On/Off Button The spa also features an automatic mode which heats and filters the water when the spa is left unattended. When the spa is first plugged in, or if the buttons on the console have not been used for longer than twenty minutes, the automatic mode will begin filtering or heating the water, as needed. Note: To keep the filter and heat cycles from running, the power cord must be unplugged. USING THE CONSOLE Refer to the console diagram above. The function of each console control is explained below: Air Control: Determines the amount of air that is in the spa jet system during operation. If the control is turned to the left, the amount of air flowing through the jets will increase. If the control is turned to the right, the amount will decrease. Thermostat: Controls the temperature of the water. The water heats at about 1.8¡F an hour with the cover on. The thermostat can be set to heat the water from 70¡F to 104¡F. You should use a medical or other accurate thermometer to check the temperature of the water. On/Off Button: Turns the spa on and off. When you first press the on/off button, the spa jet unit will run at low speed, providing gentle hydrotherapy. Press the button again and the spa will run at high speed, providing more intense hydrotherapy. Press the button a third time, and the spa will shut off. 12 Maintenance The hydrotherapy spa is designed to provide you with years of enjoyment. Please follow the guidelines below to properly maintain your hydrotherapy spa. MAINTAINING THE SPA COVER The spa cover should be cleaned monthly. To clean the spa cover, use water and a non-abrasive cleaner on the entire cover. Rinse the cover with a garden hose to remove any cleaner residue. Dry the cover entirely. You should also use a non-silicone based vinyl conditioner on the cover after you clean it. This will help protect the cover from sun damage. MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE DAILY ¥ Check the water level and refill the spa to the level shown on page 9, step 3. ¥ Check the pH balance and sanitizer level. Adjust if necessary (see WATER CHEMISTRY on page 14). ¥ Clean the surface of the water with a skimming net. SANITIZING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA Please refer to your local pool and spa supplier for information concerning which chemicals you should use in your area to sanitize the spa. WEEKLY ¥ Clean the spa shell at the waterline. ¥ Check and thoroughly clean the filter (see CHECKING AND CLEANING THE FILTER on this page). ¥ Replace the filter if needed (see ORDERING REPLACEMENT PARTS on the back cover). The most common sanitizing agent is a solid bromine concentrate. The amount required varies according to several factors, such as user load, temperature, water conditions etc. MONTHLY ¥ Clean the spa cover (see MAINTAINING THE SPA COVER below). ¥ Soak the filter for two hours in a trisodium phosphate (TSP) solution. Rinse the filter in clean water. ¥ Replace the filter if needed (see ORDERING REPLACEMENT PARTS on the back cover). Proper water maintenance is a fairly complex process. We recommend that you contact your local pool and spa supplier for information on how you should best accomplish this. CHECKING AND CLEANING THE FILTER EVERY THREE MONTHS ¥ Drain the spa and refill with clean water. Sanitize and test the pH of the water. ¥ Check for any leaks around the pump or joints in the pipes. The seals will wear out over time; detecting leaks early can reduce repair costs. ¥ Clean the interior of the spa. Do not use solvents or waxes. The filter should be checked periodically for build-up of dirt and oil. If the filter needs to be cleaned, follow the steps below: Screws 1. Turn off the power. 2. Remove the two Filter screws from the Cover filter cover. Be careful not to strip the threads from the holes. Filter Remove the filter cover. 3. Remove the filter from the spa jet unit by lifting the filter from the filter housing. 4. Check the filter for any dirt or debris. Filter If the filter needs Housing to be cleaned, rinse the filter with a hose. If the filter is still dirty, you will need to soak it in a cleaning solution which can be obtained from a pool and spa supply store. 5. Inspect the filter for damage. Replace the filter if there are any signs of damage. EVERY SIX MONTHS ¥ Treat the exterior with a wood sealant (see MAINTAINING THE SPA EXTERIOR below). MAINTAINING THE SPA EXTERIOR The wood panel exterior has been treated with a sealant at the factory to protect the wood from water damage. We suggest that you treat the wood finish twice a year with an additional coat of weather sealant. Contact your local spa and pool supplier for advice on which sealants work best in your climate. CLEANING THE SPA SHELL The spa shell should be cleaned with a mild soap solution. Do not use solvents. The spa should always be clean and dry before being moved or stored. 13 6. Re-insert the cleaned filter into the filter housing. 7. Re-attach the filter cover with the screws. Do not overtighten the screws. ATTACHING AND REMOVING THE ACCESS COVER To remove the access cover, remove the four access cover screws from the access cover. Slide the access cover down and pull the bottom of the access cover away from the spa unit. Be careful not to damage the spa shell as you remove the cover. WATER CHEMISTRY The hydrotherapy spa comes with a starter chemical pack for maintaining the water in the spa. (See TESTING AND TREATING THE WATER on page 10.) Additional chemicals can be purchased at a pool and spa supply store. CAUTION: The chemicals used to maintain the pH balance of the water and to sanitize the water can be dangerous. Always follow these basic guidelines when handling the chemicals: 1. Always read and follow the directions on the label, unless directed otherwise. 2. Never mix different chemicals. 3. Do not exceed the recommended amounts of chemicalsÑfollow the directions on the label closely. 4. Keep all chemicals out of the reach of children and pets. 5. Keep all containers closed tightly when not in use. 6. Never add water to the chemicalsÑalways add the chemicals to the water as directed. 7. Always store chemicals in a cool, dry place. Access Cover Access Cover Screws To replace the access cover, insert the top of the cover under the edge of the spa shell. Slide the cover up until the bottom of the cover will clear the trim along the bottom of the spa unit. Slide the cover into place and re-attach the four cover screws. MAINTAINING THE PROPER PH BALANCE DRAINING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA The pH factor is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity in the water. It is measured on a scale of 1 to 14. Pure water has a value of 7, which is neutral. Any value above 7 is alkaline, and any value below 7 is acidic. You should maintain a slightly alkaline pH level, between 7.2 and 7.8, in the hydrotherapy spa. The hydrotherapy spa should be drained at least four times a year and refilled with clean water. You may need to drain the spa more often, depending on the user load. This must be done, because after repeated chemical treatment, the water becomes chemically saturated. Once this happens, additional chemical treatment of the water is no longer effective. The spa should also be drained if you will not be using it for long periods of time. The spa must always be drained before major repairs are made. Severe problems can occur when the pH balance is not maintained within this range. If the pH level exceeds 7.8, dissolved minerals can build-up and clog the plumbing in the spa jet unit. If the pH level falls below 7.2, the acid level in the water will begin to corrode the metal parts in the spa jet unit. Also, the sanitation agents in the water will not be effective if the pH level is not properly maintained. Damage caused by improper pH levels is not covered under the warranty. The hydrotherapy spa should always be covered when it is empty. Direct sunlight can cause extensive damage. The surface of the spa shell can reach temperatures as high as 150¡F in a matter of minutes if exposed to the sun while it is empty. These high temperatures can cause significant damage, such as blistering of the shell surface and warping of the spa shell. Any damage caused by sun exposure is not covered under warranty. To maintain the proper pH level, you should test the pH of the water regularly. To test the water, you can either purchase additional test strips or purchase a pH test kit at a pool and spa supply store. The pH reading should be between 7.2 and 7.8. If the level is too low, add a pH increaser (usually soda ash). If the level is too high, add a pH reducer (usually sodium bisulfate). Test the water again after five minutes. See the instructions with your pH test kit for additional information about testing and adjusting the pH. To drain the hydrotherapy spa, follow these steps: 1. Set the temperature control on the console to the lowest setting. 2. Shut off the circuit breaker or GFCI. 3. Remove the access cover from the back of the 14 spa unit. 4. Remove the drainage hose from the spa and attach a garden hose to the valve on the drainage hose. 5. Open the valve by turning the knob counterclockwise. The water will begin to drain. 6. When the spa is empty, close the valve and remove the garden hose. Return the drainage hose to the clip and replace the access cover. 7. Refill the spa and treat the water with chemicals (see pages 10 and 14). Pump Motor Drain Hose Cap Valve Knob DRAINING THE PUMP After the hydrotherapy spa is drained (see DRAINING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA on page 14), the pump should also be drained if the hydro-therapy spa will be stored for more than thirty days, or if it may be exposed to freezing temperatures. ACCESS COVER on page 14). Locate the pump inside the spa unit. Remove the drain plug from the pump and allow all water to drain from the pump. Replace the drain plug. WINTER USE AND CARE The hydrotherapy spa is designed for year-round use. If you decide to store the hydrotherapy spa for the winter, store it in a warm, dry location. Follow the steps below to winterize the hydrotherapy spa. 1. Drain the spa (see DRAINING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA on the previous page and this page). 2. Remove all remaining water from the spa shell. Dry the spa shell with towels. 3. Set the air control on the console to the lowest setting. Use a wet/dry vacuum to pull any remaining water from the system. To do this, place the vacuum nozzle over each jet, starting with the highest jet and finishing with the lowest one. 4. Set the air control on the console to the highest setting and repeat step 3. 5. Drain the pump (see DRAINING THE PUMP on this page). Once the water has drained from the pump, place the vacuum nozzle over the drainage hole in the pump and vacuum any additional water from the pump. Note: For additional protection you can remove the pump/motor from the spa to store it in a climate-controlled room. 6. Clean the spa shell (see page 13). 7. Clean the filter (see page 13). 8. A qualified electrician should disconnect the power cord from the 240 volt power source, if so wired. 9. Re-attach the access cover and re-attach the spa cover. Pump Drain Plug To drain the pump, remove the access cover from the spa unit (see ATTACHING AND REMOVING THE 15 Maintenance Notes Maintenance is an important part of keeping your spa in top operating condition.
