Attention New Spa Owner!
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Sundance® 780 Series spa! The
following is a list of automated functions and maintenance recommendations
for your new spa. Automated functions have been listed below in an attempt to
suppress any operational concerns you may have during startup and the first
24-hours of ownership! Maintenance recommendations are listed in an attempt to
stress their importance in protecting your new spa.
Automated Operations
Approximately two minutes after power is applied to the spa, the first filtration/
heating cycle turns on pump 1 (Section 9.0, page 25). For 2 pump models, an
automatic five-minute “blow-out” function also activates pump 2 for a period of five
minutes to flush all lines. Then, after five minutes, pump 2 turns off and pump 1
continues to operate for the duration of the cycle.
Note: This function only occurs during the first filtration/heating cycle each day.
Maintain Healthy Spa Water
Always maintain your hot tub’s water chemistry within the following parameters:
with CLEARRAY®
without CLEARRAY
pH
7.4-7.6
7.4-7.6
Free chlorine
no less than 1.0 ppm
3.0-4.0 ppm
Free Bromine
no less than 2.0 ppm
2.0-4.0 ppm
Total Alkalinity
100-120 ppm
100-120 ppm
Calcium Hardness
150-250 ppm
150-250 ppm
IMPORTANT: CLEARRAY® Water Purification System is factory installed. If
the CLEARRAY® system is altered or is not operating efficiently then follow
the “without CLEARRAY®” water chemistry parameters as defined by the
Association of Pool and Spa Professionals. CLEARRAY® requires an annual
bulb replacement to properly sanitize your water.
! TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR DISEASE! Always maintain your spa filter as outlined below to ensure healthy spa water. Refer to pages
34-35 for additional information.
Required Filter Maintenance
Your new hot tub is equipped with an advanced 2-stage MICROCLEAN® water
filtration system that provides unsurpassed water quality! To ensure maximum
water quality at all times, you should clean and reuse the larger pleated filter
cartridge every month and replace (throw away) the smaller MICROCLEAN filter
cartridge every 3 months, or earlier as necessary. The smaller MICROCLEAN
filter cartridge is designed to be thrown away! Attempts to reuse this filter
cartridge may result in the re-release of unwanted particles back into the spa.
See pages 34-35 for detailed filter cartridge replacement instructions.
Required Water Maintenance
! TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR DISEASE! You should
replace the spa’s water every 3 months. The frequency depends on a number
of variables including frequency of use, number of users, and attention paid
to water quality maintenance. You will know it is time for a change when you
cannot control sudsing and/or you can no longer get the normal feel or sparkle
to the water, even though the key water balance measurements are all within the
proper parameters. See pages 41-42 for additional information.

Important Spa Owner Information
Your new Sundance® 780 Series Spa is constructed to the highest
standards and is capable of providing many years of trouble-free use.
However, because heat retentive materials are utilized to insulate
the spa for efficient operation, an uncovered acrylic spa surface and
wall fittings directly exposed to sunlight and high temperatures for an
extended period are subject to permanent damage or discoloration.
Damage caused by exposing the spa to this abuse is not covered under
warranty. We recommend that you always keep the spa full of water
when it is exposed to direct sunlight and that you keep the insulating
cover in place at all times when the spa is not in use. Read and carefully
follow the requirements for your spa’s support base found in Section 4.0
titled, “Choosing a Location” (Page 10).
We constantly strive to offer the finest spas available, therefore
modifications and enhancements may be made which affect the
specifications, illustrations and/or instructions contained herein.

Important Additional CSA Safety Instructions (Canada Only)
When using this electrical equipment, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. A green colored terminal or a terminal marked G, Gr, Ground,
Grounding or the symbol* is located inside the supply terminal box
or compartment. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this terminal must
be connected to the grounding means provided in the electric supply
service panel with a continuous copper wire equivalent in size to the
circuit conductors that supply this equipment (*IEC Publication 417,
Symbol 5019).
3. At least two lugs marked “Bonding Lugs” are provided on the external
surface or on the inside of the supply terminal box/compartment. To
reduce the risk of electric shock, connect the local common bonding
grid in the area of the spa to these terminals with an insulated or bare

General Electrical Safety Instructions
Your new Sundance® 780 Series Spa is equipped with a "state-ofthe-art" equipment system. It contains the most advanced safety and
self-protective equipment in the industry. Nonetheless, this spa must
be installed properly to ensure dependable usage. Please contact your
local Sundance dealer or local building department should you have any
questions regarding your installation.
Proper grounding is extremely important. Sundance spas are equipped
with a current collector system. A pressure wire connector is provided
on the surface of the control box, located outside the equipment door
(Figure B, page 17) to permit connection of a bonding wire between
this point and any ground metal equipment, metal water pipe or conduit
within 5 feet (1.5m) of the spa, or copper clad grounding rod buried
within 5 feet (1.5m) of the spa. Bonding wire must be at least No. 8 AWG
(8.4 mm²) solid copper wire. This is a most important safety assurance
feature.
Before installing your spa, check with your local building department to
ensure installation conforms to local building codes.
120/240 Volt Dover Convertible Model
A spa connected to a 120 VAC electrical service must be located close
enough to a grounded, grounding-type electrical outlet so that the
included 10 feet (3m) power cord can be plugged directly into it. DO
NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD as this could cause damage to the
spa’s equipment due to insufficient voltage. The power supplied to this
spa must be a dedicated circuit with no other appliances or lights sharing
the power provided by the circuit.
Page 9
780 SERIES
4.0
Choosing A Location
IMPORTANT: Because of the combined weight of the spa, water
and users, it is extremely important that the base upon which the
spa rests be smooth, flat, level and capable of uniformly supporting
this weight, without shifting or settling, for the entire time the spa is
in place. If the spa is placed on a surface which does not meet these
requirements, damage to the skirt and/or the spa shell may result.
Damage caused by improper support is not covered under warranty.
It is the responsibility of the spa owner to assure the integrity of the
support over time. We recommend a poured, reinforced concrete
slab with a minimum thickness of 4 inches (10 cm). Wood decking
is also acceptable provided it is constructed so that it meets the
requirements outlined above.
!
WARNING: For spas that are to rest on balconies, roofs
or other platforms not specifically tied into main structural
support, consult a professional Structural Engineer with
experience in this type of application.
The spa must be installed in such a manner as to provide drainage away
from it. Placing the spa in a depression without provisions for proper
drainage could allow rain, overflow and other casual water to flood the
equipment and create a wet condition in which it would sit in. For spas
which will be recessed into a floor or deck, install so as to permit access
to the equipment, either from above or below, for servicing. Make certain
that there are no obstructions which would prevent removal of all side
cabinet panels and access to the jets components, especially on the side
with the equipment bay doors.
! CAUTION: If the spa is indoors or located in an enclosed area,
proper ventilation should be discussed with an Engineer or authority
competent enough to understand the necessary provisions needed
to vent moist or heated air and air associated with chemical odors
outdoors. When the spa is in use considerable amounts of
moisture will escape potentially causing mold and mildew. This
can cause health risk. Over time, this can damage certain surfaces,
surroundings, and equipment.
4.1
Outdoor Location
In selecting the ideal outdoor location for your spa, we suggest that you
take into consideration the following:
• The proximity to changing area and shelter (especially in regions
subject to cold weather).
• The pathway to and from your spa (this should be free of debris so
that dirt and leaves are not easily tracked into the spa).
Page 10
780 SERIES
•
The closeness to trees and shrubbery (remember that leaves and
birds could create extra work in keeping the spa clean).
• A sheltered environment (less wind and weather exposure can result
in lowered operation and maintenance costs).
• The overall enhancement of your environment. It is preferable not to
place the spa under an unguttered roof overhang since run-off water
will shorten the life expectancy of the spa cover.
• For spas that are to rest on balconies, roofs or other platforms not
specifically tied into main structural support, consult a professional
Structural Engineer with experience in this type of application.
• In the unlikely event that you should ever need to access or gain
entry to any portion of the spa for servicing, it is highly recommended
that you plan your outdoor installation to provide full access to the
entire spa. Please take this into consideration when placing the spa
in a deck or enclosed by a surrounding.
• Consider locating your spa away from any reflective surface or glass
to prevent any damage to the synthetic skirt.
• Do not shim the spa. To ensure proper support the spa must sit flat
on the intended foundation.
4.2
Indoor Location
For indoor installations many factors need to be considered before
installing a spa indoors:
!
WARNING: In addition to maintenance of filters and water
chemistry, proper ventilation is recommended to reduce the
risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection,
bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments that could be
present in the air or water. Consult a licensed architect
or building contractor to determine your specific needs if
installing your hot tub indoors.
•
PROPER FOUNDATION: Consult a Structural Engineer when
considering a foundation that will adequately support the spa
the entire time it is in place. Proper support is critical especially if
the spa is to rest on a second story or higher. For spas that are to
rest on balconies, roofs or other platforms not specifically tied into the
main structural support, you should consult a professional Structural
Engineer with experience in this type of application.
•
PROPER DRAINAGE: It is extremely important to have in place
measures to sufficiently handle excessive water spillage. Be
sure the flooring in which the spa rests on has adequate drainage
and can handle draining of the entire contents of the spa. Be sure
to make provisions for ceilings or any other structures that may be
below the spas installation. Areas around your spa can become wet
or moist so all flooring and subsequent furniture, walls and adjacent
structures should be able to withstand or resist water and moisture.
Page 11
780 SERIES
•
PROPER VENTILATION: Proper ventilation should be discussed
with an Engineer or authority competent enough to understand
the necessary provisions needed to vent moist or heated air and
air associated with chemical odors outdoors. When the spa is in
use considerable amounts of moisture will escape potentially causing
mold and mildew, over time this can damage certain surfaces and or
surroundings.
•
SUFFICIENT ACCESS: In the unlikely event that you should ever
need to access or gain entry to any portion of the spa for servicing,
it is highly recommended that you plan your indoor installation to
provide full access to the entire spa.
•
WARRANTY: Damage caused by not following these guidelines
or any improper installation not in accordance with local codes or
authorities is not covered under the spas warranty. Please consult
your local state or city building ordinances.
•
DO NOT SHIM THE SPA. To ensure proper support the spa must sit
flat on the intended foundation.

Spa Fill Up Procedure
For best results, read each step in its entirety before proceeding with
that step.
1. Prepare The Spa For Filling
• Clear all debris from the spa. (Although the spa shell has been
polished at the factory, you may want to treat it with a specially
formulated spa cleaner.) Consult your dealer for additional
information prior to filling spa.
• Remove filter lid (page 24), then remove filter cartridge from filter
bucket as illustrated in Section 11.1 (pages 34-35).
2. Fill Spa
• Place the end of your garden hose into the empty filter bucket.
CAUTION: TO DECREASE BUILD UP ON COMPONENTS AND
MINIMIZE ACRYLIC DAMAGE.
Never fill with water from a water softener. If your water is extremely
“hard”, it is preferable to fill half-way with hard water and the rest of
the way with softened water. Water that is too soft can be corrosive
to metal components.
•
!
WARNING: TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR
DISEASE.
Fill hot tub with clean tap water from garden hose, to reduce risk of
contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus)
and/or respiratory ailments. Fill until water covers all jets but does
not touch the bottom of the lowest headrest. (DO NOT OVERFILL!)
IMPORTANT: Always fill your spa through the filter bucket after
draining. Failure to do so may cause air to be trapped in either
pump, preventing the pump from circulating water. Remove the hose
and replace the filter cartridge as illustrated in Section 11.1 (pages
34-35).
3. Turn On Power
Turn on power to spa at the home’s circuit breaker to start boot up
sequence (Section 9.0, page 25). The heater and filter/circulation
pump will automatically activate after several seconds. If the control
panel LED flashes water temperature and “COL” or “ICE” this is
normal. Refer to page 47 for additional information.
Note: “COL” and “ICE” will only appear when the spa is in Economy
mode.
Page 18
780 SERIES
4. Activate Jets Pumps
Turn on all jet(s) pumps to ensure proper mixing when
adding start-up chemical in step 5.
2
1
5. Add Start-Up Chemicals
Add the spa water chemicals as recommended by your Sundance
dealer. See Section titled “Water Quality Maintenance” (page 41)
for general guidance.
!
WARNING: RISK OF POISONING OR DEATH.
Never leave chemicals opened and accessible to anyone.
Use chemicals according to the vendors instructions.
Always store chemicals in a safe and/or locked location.
Keep away from and out of reach of children.
6. Establish A Stable Sanitizer Reading
Establish a stable sanitizer reading no less than 1.0 ppm chlorine
or 2.0 ppm bromine. To ensure healthy water conditions, always
maintain a constant sanitizer reading within the levels recommended
on the inside cover of this manual. If sanitizer levels cannot be
stabilized, perform the decontamination procedure steps 9-15 on the
following page.
Note: The “decontamination procedure” steps 9-15 should also be used
after the spa has been “Winterized” (Section 11.7, page 39) or has
been sitting without power for an extended period.
7. Set Spa To Heat
To warm spa water to a comfortable temperature, follow
these steps:
• The LED display on the control panel displays the actual
temperature of the spa water. Press either the COOLER (
) or
WARMER (
) button once to display the “set” temperature for 5
seconds. If you want the water to heat to a different temperature,
simply press COOLER or WARMER within 5 seconds. The set
temperature increases or decreases by one degree each time one of
these buttons is pressed.
• The heater will turn off when the temperature corresponding to the
thermostat setting is achieved.
Page 19
780 SERIES
Important Heater Details:
• The maximum temperature for which the spa can be set is
104°F (40°C) and the minimum is 65°F (18°C).
• For North American 2-pump spas powered by a 40 amp
service, jets pump #1 must be set to low speed and jets
pump #2 must be turned off to operate the heater.
• For Export (50 Hz) 2-pump spas powered by a 20 amp
service, jet pump #1 must be set to low speed and jets
pump #2 must be turned off to operate the heater.
• Setting the thermostat at maximum will not accelerate the
heating process. This will only result in a higher ultimate
temperature.
• The heater operates until the water reaches the
programmed “set temperature”, then turns off. The heater
will reactivate after the water cools to approximately 1.5°
below the “set temperature.”
8. Place Cover On Spa
• Keeping the insulating cover in place anytime the spa is not in
use will reduce the time required for heating, thereby minimizing
operating costs.
• The time required for initial heat-up will vary depending on the
starting water temperature.
!
DANGER:
RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.
Check water temperature carefully before entering hot tub!
Excessive water temperature can cause burns, welts and
body temperature to rise, hyperthermia (over-heating).
Decontamination Procedure (Steps 9-15)
Steps 9-15 below are only required when sanitizer levels are unstable
after performing steps 1-6 above. Disregard steps 9-15 below if sanitizer
levels remain stable at the levels recommended on the inside cover of
this manual.
9. Add 2.5 ounces (71 g) of sodium dichlor for every 100 gallons (378
Liters) of water. Refer to the table (page 21) for approximate water
fill volume by model.
Page 20
780 SERIES
!
CAUTION: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY OR SPA DAMAGE!
Never add chlorine tablets (trichlor) or acid to your hot tub
for any reason! These chemicals may damage components
within your hot tub, burn or irritate your skin, create a rash,
and void the manufacturer warranty for your spa.

excessive chemical vapors to exit spa, protecting
pillows and plastic knobs from chemical attack. If spa is
indoors, open doors and windows for proper ventilation.
Turn on all spa jets pumps for one hour, open all air
controls, and place all massage selector knob(s) in their center
“combo” position as shown (right).
Note: You will need to press the jets pump button(s) every 20 minutes
since these functions have an automatic 20 minute time-out function that
turns them off.
!
WARNING: BECAUSE OF THE RISK OF INHALING
CHEMICAL VAPORS.
• To decrease the risk of injury, drowning or entrapment,
never leave your hot tub unattended for any reason while
the cover is open and accessible, especially to small
children and animals!
• Precautions should be taken to minimize your exposure
to chemical vapors (that could cause lung, brain, or skin
damage).
11. Turn off power to the spa at the circuit breaker, then drain spa as
outlined in Section 11.2 (pages 36-37).
12. Refill spa with clean tap water from garden hose until water covers
all jets but does not touch the bottom of the lowest headrest. (DO
NOT OVERFILL!)
Page 21

WARNING: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY.
•
•
To decrease the risk of injury, entrapment or drowning,
never leave your hot tub unattended for any reason,
especially if while the cover is open and accessible to
small children and animals!
To decrease the risk of contracting a waterborne illness
(e.g. an infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory
ailments, maintain water chemistry within 6 step
parameters. If you or other bathers experience such a
condition, discontinue use and seek immediate medical
attention.
15. Establish a sanitizer reading no less than 1.0 ppm free chlorine
or 2.0 ppm bromine, then allow the hot tub to set undisturbed for
8 hours. Retest water after 8 hours to determine if sanitizer levels
are stable. If sanitizer levels are stable, your spa is ready for use.
To ensure healthy water conditions, always maintain a constant
sanitizer reading within the levels recommended on the inside cover
of this manual. If sanitizer levels are not stable at this time, it will be
necessary to repeat this procedure in its entirety (steps 1-15) until
stable sanitizer readings are achieved.
IMPORTANT: If the CLEARRAY® water purification system is
removed from the hot tub or is not operating effectively follow the
“without CLEARRAY®” water chemistry parameters as defined by the

Operating Instructions
The spa control system has automatic functions that operate upon
startup and normal operation to protect the system. Upon power up, the
readout displays the following information:
1. Control panel displays current software release (e.g. 3.60).
2. Control panel displays “888” and all indicator LEDs are lit,
permitting visual inspection of all display segments and indicator lights for proper operation.
3. After the initial start-up sequence ends, the actual water
temperature is displayed. If water temperature at this time
is less than the factory default temperature setting of 100°F
(38°C) and the spa is set to either of the standard filtration/
heating modes (page 29), the heater will turn on and run until the
water temperature rises to the factory setting, then turn off.
Note: It is common for the heater to turn on after the spa is first filled
because tap water is often very cold.
4. Approximately two minutes after power is applied to the spa, the
first filtration/heating cycle turns on pump 1. For 2 pump models, an
automatic five-minute “blow-out” function also activates pump 2 for
a period of five minutes to flush all lines. Then, after five minutes,
pump 2 turns off and pump 1 continues to operate for the duration of
the cycle.
Note: This function only occurs during the first filtration/heating cycle
each day.

Note: The massage selector is designed to operate in positions A
(Combo), B, and C for optimum performance. It is considered normal for
sound levels within the valve to vary between positions due to the large
amounts of water flowing through it. For optimum filtration benefits, leave
the valve in position A when spa is covered. Select position B or C for
maximum jet performance during spa use.

Air Controls
Certain jet systems have their own air control. Each control
introduces air into the water lines that supply specific jet
groups. Simply rotate any air control knob clockwise to open, or
counterclockwise to close.
Note: To minimize heat loss, close all air controls when spa is not in
use. Certain jets may not draw air while the jets pump is running in low
speed; this is considered normal.

10.0 Automatic Filtration Cycles
A. For Certa, Chelsee, Hamilton and Montclair Models
Your new spa includes an 8-hour circulation pump, which filters the water
continuously. The circulation pump draws water through the short side of
the double-ended filter cartridge and effectively removes small debris in
your spa.
Note: The 8-hour circulation pump system also supplies heated water
to the spa when the heater turns on. To set a time for the first filtration/
heating cycle, simply turn power on to the spa two minutes prior to the
desired time.
B. For Dover Models
Your new spa includes a 24-hour circulation pump, which filters the water
continuously. The circulation pump draws water through the short side of
the double-ended filter cartridge and effectively removes small debris in
your spa.
Note: The 24-hour circulation pump system also supplies heated water
to the spa when the heater turns on. To set a time for the first filtration/
heating cycle, simply turn power on to the spa two minutes prior to the
desired time.
The control system activates a programmable “Standard” or “Economy”
filtration/heating cycle to remove larger debris missed by the circulation
pump filtration system. These cycles utilize pump #1 and the larger
filter cartridge end to quickly clear “skim” the water of large debris and
minimize their “bath-tub ring” effect. Apart from their filtration benefit,
each mode also effects the operation of your spa’s heater. Refer to
Sections 10.1 and 10.2 below for additional information.
Page 28
780 SERIES
10.1 Standard Filtration/Heating Modes (F0-F3)
Standard filtration/heating modes are typically selected by customers in
cold climates where heat up times are extended due to lower ambient
temperatures. In these modes, the set temperature regulates the water
temperature throughout the day. The heater will activate as needed
throughout the day. After the programmed set temperature is reached,
the heater turns off.
10.2 Economy Filtration/Heating Modes (F4-F6)
Economy filtration/heating modes are typically selected by customers in
warm climates where heat up times are minimized due to higher ambient
temperatures. In these modes, the set temperature regulates the water
temperature only during a programmed filter cycle. The heater will turn
on only when there is a heat call during a programmed filter cycle.
Note: These modes consume less energy than standard modes F0-F3
outlined above.
10.3 Lock Modes (L1-L2)
These modes are designed for use during spa service or to prevent
unauthorized use.
10.4 Selecting The Filtration/Heating Mode
Press and hold both control panel WARMER (
) and COOLER
(
) buttons at the same time, then release. Then press either
WARMER (
) or COOLER (
) button to select filtration/heating
mode F0-F6 or lock modes L1-L2 outlined below. During the filtration/
heating cycle the jets pump 1 low speed will activate.
Note: (For 2 pump models) At the beginning of the first filtration/heating
cycle of the day, an automatic five minute “blow-out” function also
activates pump 2 for a period of five minutes to flush all lines. Then, after
five minutes, pump 2 turns off and pump 1 continues to operate for the
duration of the cycle.
Standard Filtration/Heating Modes
F0 5 minutes of filtration per day (one 5 minute “blow-out”
cycle every 24 hours to purge all plumbing lines)
F1 1 hour of filtration per day (one 30-minute cycle every 12
hours); this is the factory default setting.
F2 1.5 hours of filtration per day (one 30-minute cycle every
8 hours)
F3 2 hours of filtration per day (one 30-minute cycle every 6
hours)
Page 29
780 SERIES
Economy Filtration/Heating Modes
F4 1 hour of filtration/heating per day (one 30-minute cycle
every 12 hours)
F5 1.5 hours of filtration/heating per day (one 30-minute
cycle every 8 hours)
F6 2 hours of filtration/heating per day (one 30-minute cycle
every 6 hours)
Lock Modes
L1 Lock Out (disables all spa functions to permit filter
cleaning)
L2 Lock Mode (disables the jets to prevent unauthorized
use of spa). Filtration/heating cycle will continue to
operate as programmed in this mode. The temperature
display flashes when this function is enabled. Example:
the “F3” filtration/heating cycle was enabled prior to
choosing lock mode. The spa continues to perform the “F3” cycle
until lock mode is canceled, allowing another cycle to be selected.
Note: To exit a lock mode you will need to re-enter the filtration/heating
modes and select a new cycle from F1-F6.
To set a time for the first filtration/heating cycle, simply turn power on to
the spa two minutes prior to the desired time. Example: If you desire your
first filtration/heating cycle to begin at 10:00 AM turn off power to the spa
and turn it back on again at 9:58 AM.
Note: Start time is approximate and may vary slightly from day to day.
10.5 Programming the Circulation Pump Filtration Cycle
Press and hold the Jets pump 1 (
) and Cooler (
) button at the
same time for 3 seconds to access the circulation pump programming.
Continually press the Warmer (
) button to scroll up through the cycles
below. Then select a cycle and press the Jets pump 1 (
) button to
activate that cycle. Upon pressing the jets pump 1 button the system will
save your selection, exit the program menu and return to the main menu.
Note: After 10 seconds the programming screen will revert back to the

In extreme bitter cold weather we recommend you
program the circulation pump to run 24 hours. Refer to
the "Winterizing" section on page 39.
To set a time for the first filtration/heating cycle, simply turn power on
to the spa two minutes prior to the desired time. Example: If you desire
your first filtration/heating cycle to begin at 10:00 AM turn off power to
the spa and turn it back on again at 9:58 AM. Start time is approximate
and may vary slightly from day to day.
For Certa, Chelsee, Hamilton and Montclair models:
The recommended factory default setting is 8 hours. This setting should
not be altered to run for less than 8 hours. Running the circulation pump
less than the factory recommended time would result in issues with
water quality maintenance.
Note: If the circulation pump filtration cycle is interrupted or turned
off the duration of the cycle will not be extended once spa functions
resume. Example: If the spa is set to cycle for 8 hours and only runs
for 2 hours before the interruption, once functions resume it will not
continue to cycle for another 6 hours, if the 8-hour cycle time has
expired.
For Dover models:
The recommended factory default setting is 24 hours. This setting
should not be altered. Running the circulation pump less than the
factory recommended time would result in issues with water quality
maintenance.

•
•
RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DROWNING
BY ENTRAPMENT!
Keep hair, loose articles of clothing or hanging jewelry away from
suction fittings, rotating jets or other moving components to avoid
entrapment that could lead to drowning or severe injury.
Never use the spa unless all suction guards, filter, filter lid, or
skimmer assembly are installed to prevent body and/or hair
entrapment.
Never operate or use the spa if the filter, filter lid, or skimmer
assembly are broken or any part of the skimmer assembly is
missing. Please contact your dealer or nearest service center for
service.
The suction fittings and suction covers in this spa are sized to
match the specific water flow created by the pump(s). If it is
necessary to replace the suction fittings, suction covers or pump(s),
be sure that the flow rates are compatible and are in compliance
with the VGB Safety Act page 2.
Never replace a suction fitting or suction cover with one rated less
than the flow rate marked on the original suction fitting. Using
improper suction fittings or suction covers can create a body or hair
suction entrapment hazard that may lead to drowning or severe
injury.
Owners must alert all spa users to the potential risk of Hair, Limb,
Body, Evisceration (disembowelment), and Mechanical Entrapment,
page 6.
11.1 Cleaning The Filter
Your new spa is equipped with an exclusive MICROCLEAN® 2-stage
filter cartridge located under the filter lid. Fine debris are filtered by the
circulation pump drawing water through the ultra-fine (stage 2) cartridge.
Larger debris are filtered by the main 2-speed pump drawing water
through the (stage 1) polyester mesh (pleated) cartridge during normal
operation and during each filtration/heating cycle. Combined, both filter
halves work together to give you unsurpassed water quality by trapping
suspended particles on their outer surface.
Note: To ensure optimum performance, clean and reuse the stage
1 cartridge once a month and replace the stage 2 cartridge every 3
months, or as needed.
Page 34

780 SERIES
Periodically, the polyester mesh (pleated) filter will need a more
thorough cleaning to remove imbedded oils and minerals. For this, we
suggest cleaning as illustrated above (step D), followed by soaking the
filter overnight in a plastic container filled with a solution of water and a
specially formulated filter cleanser available from your Sundance dealer.
CAUTION: RISK OF PRODUCT DAMAGE!
• Never scrub the polyester mesh filter cartridge with a brush as
this will cause the polyester mesh to wear out and come apart.
• Never let the spa pump run or have a filter cycle come on without a filter cartridge in the skimmer compartment. Running the
spa without a filter cartridge may permit debris to enter the spa
plumbing and void the warranty!
The average life expectancy of the polyester mesh filter cartridge
is approximately two years with proper care and water quality
maintenance. The smaller stage 2 filter cannot be cleaned and must be
replaced (thrown-out) every 3 months, or as needed. DO NOT reuse this
cartridge! Attempts to reuse this cartridge will reintroduce debris back
into your spa! Replacement cartridges may be purchased from your
Sundance dealer.
11.2 Draining And Refilling
About every 3 months, you will want to replace the spa’s water. The
frequency depends on a number of variables including the amount of
use and attention paid to water quality maintenance. You will know it is
time for a change when you cannot control sudsing and/or you can no
longer get the normal feel or sparkle to the water even though the key
water balance measurements are all within the proper parameters.
!
Page 36
CAUTION! READ THIS BEFORE DRAINING: To prevent
damage to the spa’s components, turn off power to the spa
at the circuit breaker before draining it. Do not turn the power
back on until your spa has been refilled. There are certain
precautions to keep in mind when draining your spa. If it is
extremely cold, and the spa is outdoors, freezing could occur
in the lines or the equipment (see “Winterizing”, Section 11.7
page 39). On the other hand, if it is hot outdoors, do not
leave the spa’s surface exposed to direct sunlight for long
periods.
780 SERIES
Draining Procedures:
1. Turn off power to spa at breaker.
2. Locate and remove the front synthetic cabinet door
(page 40). The door is located directly below the
control panel.
3. Locate drain hose line attached to the 2 x 4 wood slat,
Figure A.

snap in place.
Page 37
780 SERIES
11.4 Cleaning The Spa Interior
To preserve the sheen of your spa's surface, it is crucial that you avoid
using abrasive cleaners or cleaners which have adverse chemical effect
on the surface. If you are not certain as to the suitability of a particular
cleanser, consult your authorized Sundance dealer. Regardless of the
cleanser used, use extreme care to assure that no soap residue is left
on the surface. This could cause severe sudsing when the spa is refilled.
11.5 Vinyl Cover Care And Maintenance
Using the Sundance insulating spa cover anytime the spa is not in
use will significantly reduce your operating costs, heat-up time and
maintenance requirements. To prolong the life of the cover, handle it with
care and clean it regularly. Below are the care instructions.
A. To Clean and Condition the Vinyl Cover
1. Use a garden hose to loosen debris and dirt.
2. Using a large sponge or a soft bristle brush, use diluted or mild soap
and scrub the vinyl top. Rinse clean and do not allow soap to dry on
cover. Do not use soap on the underside of the cover.
3. Please check with your Sundance Spa Dealer for recommended
cover care and conditioning products. Condition using nonpetroleum based conditioners to keep the vinyl supple and threads/
stitching from drying out. Do not use solvents, abrasive cleaners
or strong detergents. Do not use products that contain silicone or
alcohol.
B. Additional Care and Maintenance Instructions:
1. Debris can accumulate on the spa cover. Removal of snow or other
debris will help to avoid breakage of the foam cores.
2. Be sure to lock the cover straps to secure the cover from unwanted
or accidental entry.
3. Do not place heavy objects on the vinyl.
4. Do not walk, sit or stand on the cover.
5. Do not drag or use the flaps/skirt or the cover lock straps to remove
the cover.
6. Use only recommended cover lift systems.
7. Use only chemicals and cleaners recommended by Sundance Spas.
8. Remember to keep spa covered when not in use. Maintaining
proper water levels assures efficient operation and efficient electrical
usage.
9. Do not expose your spa to the sun for extended periods of time as
UV rays can damage the interior surface.
10. Use caution when removing cover. Before removing cover, assure
all locks have been released to avoid lock breakage and or cover
strap damage.
Page 38
780 SERIES
11.6 Maintaining The Synthetic Cabinet
Your new spa’s synthetic cabinet requires little or no maintenance of
any kind. To clean, simply wipe cabinet with a clean towel and mild soap
solution.
CAUTION: Never spray cabinet with a garden hose for
any reason since this action may induce an electrical
short in the spa’s electrical equipment.
11.7Winterizing
Your Sundance spa is designed to automatically protect itself
against freezing when operating properly. During periods of
severe freezing temperatures, you should check periodically to
be certain that the electrical supply to the spa has not been interrupted.
In extreme, bitter cold weather less than -20°F (-29°C), choose the F3
“Standard” filtration/heating mode and program the circulation pump to
run for 24 hours to prevent freezing (pages 29 and 30).
If you do not intend to use your spa, or if there is a prolonged power
outage during periods of severe freezing temperatures, it is important
that all water be removed from the spa and equipment to protect
against damage from freezing.
Expert winterization of your spa is highly recommended, contact your
authorized Sundance dealer. In emergency situations, damage can be
minimized by taking the following steps:
CAUTION: TURN OFF POWER TO HOT TUB!
1. Follow the directions on pages 36-37 for draining the spa.
2. Turn the massage/diverter selector(s) into the middle combo
position to allow the water in the plumbing lines to drain (page
26).
3. Turn the waterfall valve(s) to the open position to allow the water in
the plumbing lines to drain (page 28).
4. As the water level drops below the seats, use whatever means
necessary to get the water out of the recessed seating areas and
into the footwell, such as a wet/dry vacuum.
5. When the water level ceases to drop, use whatever means available
to remove any remaining water from the footwell, such as a wet/dry
vacuum.
6. Remove the equipment-side cabinet panels and locate the drain
plugs in the front of the pump(s) (Figure A, page 16). Remove
these plugs to allow the water to drain out of the pumps and heater.
Note: Approximately one to two gallons will be released during this
procedure. Use a wet/dry vacuum or other means to keep this from
flooding the equipment compartment. Replace the drain plugs.
Page 39
780 SERIES
7. Loosen the hose clamp on the circulation pump intake behind the
control box (Figure A, page 16) and pull the hose off (twist hose
back and forth while pulling outward). Tip hose down and allow to
drain, then reinstall hose and clamp.
8. Loosen hose clamp at bottom of CLEARRAY® system and pull hose
off of CLEARRAY fitting (twist the hose back and forth while pulling
downward). Tip hose down and allow to drain, then reinstall hose
and clamp. Remove the cover of the CLEARRAY system to access
the UV bulb and quartz tube. Remove and store the UV bulb in a
safe location. Remove and dry off the quartz tube then reinstall it.
Depending on the length of time, consider replacing the UV bulb
when you resume use of your hot tub.
9. Re-install cabinet side panels and cover spa so that no casual
moisture can enter into it.
Consult your authorized Sundance dealer if you have any questions
regarding winter use or winterizing.
11.8 Restarting Your Spa in Cold Weather
If you want to start up your spa after it has sat empty for a time in
freezing temperatures, be aware that the water remaining in certain
sections of the piping may still be frozen. This situation will block water
flow preventing the spa from operating properly and possibly damaging
the equipment. We recommend you consult your dealer for guidance
before attempting to re-start your spa under these conditions.
11.9 Access Door
The Access Door provides quick access to
the equipment bay and components without
having to unscrew the panel. To remove the
Access Door, follow the steps below:
1. Locate the Access Door locking bolts on
Figure A
the top of the front panel, Figure A.
2. Turn the locking bolts counterclockwise to unlocked.
This will release the panel from the spa frame,
Figure B.
3. Slowly and gently tilt the panel forward to remove.
This will expose the equipment bay for easy access
Figure B
to the components. Place the panel in a safe
location to prevent from damaging it.
Note:To avoid any injuries, more than one individual must perform the
step above.
4. To reinstall the panel just follow the steps above in reverse order.

12.0 Water Quality Maintenance
To decrease the risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an
infection, bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments, maintain water
quality within specified limits. This will enhance your enjoyment and
prolong the life of the hot tub’s equipment. Doing so requires regular
attention because the water chemistry involved is a balance of several
factors. Procrastination in regard to water maintenance will result in poor
and potentially unhealthful conditions for soaking and even damage
to your hot tub investment. For specific guidance on maintaining
water quality, consult your Authorized Sundance Spas dealer who can
recommend appropriate chemical products for sanitizing and maintaining
your hot tub.
!
WARNING: FAILURE TO MAINTAIN WATER QUALITY
WILL:
• Increase risk of contracting a waterborne illness (e.g. an
infection bacteria or virus) and/or respiratory ailments.
• Damage the equipment, components and spa shell, which
are not covered under the hot tub’s warranty.
CAUTION: Never store hot tub chemicals inside the hot tub’s equipment bay. The equipment bay may reach elevated temperatures,
this is where high voltage electronic devices are located. This area
is not intended for storage of any kind.
12.1 pH Control
pH is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity of water and is measured
on a scale of 0 to 14. The midpoint of 7 is said to be neutral, above
which is alkaline and below which is acidic. In spa water, it is very
important to maintain a slightly alkaline condition of 7.4 to 7.6 pH.
Problems become proportionately severe the further outside of this
range the water gets. A low pH will be corrosive to metals in the spa
equipment. A high pH will cause minerals to deposit on the interior
surface (scaling). In addition, the ability of the sanitation agents to keep
the spa clean is severely affected as the pH moves beyond the ideal
range. That is why almost all spa water test kits contain a measure for
pH as well as sanitizer.
12.2Sanitizing
To destroy bacteria and organic compounds in the spa water, a sanitizer
must be used regularly. Chlorine and bromine are the two most popular
sanitizers used to date. SunPurity™ mineral cartridge designed
specifically for your hot tub. Many other additives are available for your
spa. Some are necessary to compensate for out-of-balance water;
some aid in cosmetic water treatment and others simply alter the feel or
Page 41
780 SERIES
smell of the water. Your authorized Sundance dealer can advise you on
the use of these additives. When adding spa shock (chlorine or nonchlorine) or pH balancing chemicals activate the jets pump(s) and leave
the spa cover open for a minimum of 20 minutes. By doing this you will
allow excessive chemical vapors to exit the spa, protecting pillows and
plastic knobs from chemical attack.
!
WARNING: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DROWNING
OR ENTRAPMENT!
Never leave your hot tub unattended for any reason while
the cover is open and accessible, especially to small children
and animals!
CAUTION: RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY OR SPA DAMAGE!
Never add chlorine tablets (trichlor) or acid to your hot tub
for any reason! These chemicals may damage components
within your hot tub, burn or irritate your skin, create a rash,
and void the manufacturer warranty for your spa.
12.3 CLEARRAY® Water Purification System
Your new hot tub has our water purification system
factory installed that will begin disinfecting your water
instantly. CLEARRAY Water Purification System is
exclusive technology utilizing natural ultraviolet technology
to sanitize your water, disinfecting bacteria, viruses, and algae
in portable hot tubs. The ultraviolet light otherwise know as
UV-C or germicidal light inactivates the microorganisms by
disrupting the DNA so that it cannot reproduce and is
considered lifeless. The ballast is the power supply for the
purification system; it has two LED indicator lights the green
indicating incoming power flow and the red indicating the
system is properly working. CLEARRAY is standard for all
models.
Note: The CLEARRAY System only runs when the circulation pump
is running and shuts off when either jets pump is manually activated
during spa use. The system will remain off for 5 minutes after both jets
pumps time out or are manually turned off, then resume operations if the
circulation pump is programmed to run.
WARNING!
DO NOT LOOK AT LIT BULB
SEVERE EYE DAMAGE
OR BLINDNESS CAN OCCUR
120 - 230V
After a year the bulb must be replaced. If the UV timer has been
programmed correctly a message will appear on the LED display when
the time allotted has expired. In order to clear the “blb” message a new
UV bulb needs to be installed and the timer must be reset (Section 10.6,
page 33).

13.0 Error Conditions/Error Messages
There are a number of unique functions designed into your spa to protect
it from damage and/or aid in troubleshooting. Refer to Sections 13.1-13.9
below for a listing of all possible error messages and their meanings.
Always insist on genuine Sundance replacement parts.
13.1 Summer Logic
When the actual spa water temperature reaches up to 2°F
(1°C) above the set temperature, the spa goes into “summer
logic.” The circulation pump will turn off automatically
to avoid adding additional heat to the water, eventually
creating an overheat condition. This setting is not
user-programmable.
Note: The summer logic does not take effect until the spa water
temperature reaches 95°F (35°C). This condition is more likely in
excessively hot weather. Remember, the spa’s ability to cool is directly
affected by the ambient temperature. An excessively hot ambient
temperature may prevent the spa from cooling down because it’s
fully insulated construction is designed to retain heat and to minimize
operating costs.
13.2
!
Overheat Condition
WARNING: RISK OF HYPERTHERMIA (OVER-HEATING)
CAUSING SEVERE INJURY, BURNS, OR WELTS.
DO NOT ENTER SPA WATER! Water is too hot. Overheat
protection. Heater is deactivated. Spa water temperature is
above acceptable limits. When the actual water temperature
is approximately 2°F (1°C) above the set temperature, the
circulation pump will stop operating to reduce (frictional) heating. To
correct condition, remove spa cover to speed cooling. (CAUTION! Never
leave spa uncovered when children are present!) If condition persists,
contact your authorized Sundance dealer.
13.3 Panel displays SN1
Open sensor (heater is disabled) or shorted sensor (spa is
deactivated). The high-limit temperature sensor is not
functioning. Your authorized dealer must repair this.
13.4 Panel displays SN2
Open or shorted sensor (heater disabled). The temperature
sensor is not functioning. Your authorized dealer must repair this.
Page 46
780 SERIES
13.5 Panel displays FL1 or FL2
A flashing “FL1” display means the flow switch is
malfunctioning open, the circulation pump’s filter cartridge is
excessively dirty, or an “air lock” condition has occurred at the
circulation pump intake. A flashing “FL2” display means the
flow switch is malfunctioning closed.
• This error will cause the heater to deactivate. The main
pump #1 may also deactivate.
• This problem is caused by an interruption in water flow from an
excessively dirty filter cartridge, an “air lock” condition at the pump
intake, or by a malfunctioning flow switch.
To Correct Condition:
1. Verify water level is above all jets and below lowest pillow.
Add water if necessary.
2. Check for clogged/excessively dirty filter cartridge. See
Section 11.1 (pages 34-35).
3. Purge “air lock” from circulation pump intake by removing the filter
cartridge. Hold your garden hose over the filter wall fitting (with grate)
using a rag as a seal around hose end, then ask a helper to turn
on water for 30 seconds, then turn off. Reinstall filter cartridge and
check spa. Section 11.1 (pages 34-35).
4. If the circulation pump is not running, turn power off at the main
breaker, then turn power back on. This will reset the circulation pump
priming cycle. Once the pump is primed, the error should clear.
5. If problem persists, contact your authorized dealer.
13.6 Panel displays COL
Cool Condition - Temperature has dropped 20°F (11°C) below
the current set temperature. The pump and heater have been
activated to bring the temperature to within 15°F (8°C) of the set
temperature. No corrective action is required.
Note: During cold periods, you may consider increasing the number of
filtration cycles.
13.7 Panel displays ICE
Freeze Protection - A potential freeze condition has been
detected. No action is required. Main pump will operate to
circulate warm water through the plumbing until the spa is out of
danger.
Page 47
780 SERIES
13.8
!
Panel displays - - WARNING: RISK OF HYPERTHERMIA (OVER-HEATING)
CAUSING SEVERE INJURY, BURNS, OR WELTS.
DO NOT ENTER SPA WATER! The safety “Watchdog”
software has been triggered and the spa is deactivated. A
problem has been detected which could cause damage to the
spa or its components. Contact your authorized dealer.
13.9 Panel displays blb
UV bulb needs to be replaced. The message will flash between
“blb” and the water temperature. The countdown timer for the
UV bulb needs to be reset (Section 10.6, page 33). A new
UV bulb can be purchased from a local Sundance Spas dealer.
14.0 Troubleshooting Procedures
In the event your Sundance spa is not working the way it should, please
first review all the installation and operating instructions in this manual
and check the message on the panel display. If you are still not satisfied
it is working properly, please follow the appropriate troubleshooting
instructions.
Note: If any of the supply cords to the accessories are damaged, they
must be replaced by authorized service personnel.
14.1 None of the Components Operate (e.g. Pump, Light)
Check the following:
1. Is there power to the spa?
2. Is the household circuit breaker tripped?
3. Call your authorized dealer.
14.2 Pump Does Not Operate but Light Does
Press the JETS 1 Button:
1. If no water movement is detected, make sure power is going to
the spa and check the water level. If it does not solve the problem,
contact your authorized Sundance dealer.
2. The main pump operates but no water flows to jets. Pump may not
be properly primed. This can happen after the spa is drained and
refilled. Press the JETS 1 button several times, never leaving the
motor on for more than 5 to 10 seconds at a time. Turn power off and
let the air out by loosening the cap on the massage selector and/or
removing the filter. Refer to Section 8.2 (page 24). Make certain
you tighten the massage selector cap and/or reinstall the filter before
turning on spa power and restarting the pump.
Page 48
780 SERIES
14.3 Poor Jet Action
1. Press the JETS 1 button to make certain the pump #1 is on.
2. Rotate the air control clockwise to the “on” position.
3. Check for dirty filter. Clean, if necessary.
4. Make sure jets are all the way open.
14.4 Water is Too Hot
Reduce thermostat setting so the heater turns off.
14.5 No Heat
1. Check thermostat setting.
2. Keep the spa cover in place while heating.
3. Check the settings to see if your spa is in economy filtration/heating
mode (pages 29-30).
Should checking the above steps fail to correct the problem, please call
your dealer so that they may arrange service. We build the best spas in
the industry. Nonetheless, we are always striving to improve the quality
and features of our products. Your input as a Sundance spa owner is a
