Important Safety Instructions
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of drowning, electric shock, or serious injury, read the following important precautions before using the hydrotherapy spa.
READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
1. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all users of the hydrotherapy spa are
adequately informed of all precautions.
10. Never insert any object into any opening.
11. Do not use breakable containers in or near
the hydrotherapy spa.
2. Use the hydrotherapy spa only as described
in this manual.
12. Do not sit on the spa cover or place objects
on it; it is not designed to support weight.
3. The hydrotherapy spa is intended for home
use only. Do not use the spa in a commercial,
rental, or institutional setting.
13. Remove any water or debris that may collect
on the spa cover.
4. Use the hydrotherapy spa only on a level surface. Do not use the spa on carpet or other
materials that could be damaged by moisture.
14. Keep children under the age of 12 and pets
away from the hydrotherapy spa when it is
not in use.
5. The hydrotherapy spa will weigh approximately 3,300 pounds when it is filled with
water. Make sure that the location you select
for the spa will support this weight, plus the
weight of the occupants.
15. Keep all chemicals away from children and
pets.
16. The pH and chemical balance of the water
must be maintained as explained in this manual (see pages 10 and 14). Failure to do so
may cause injury to users or damage to the
hydrotherapy spa, and will void the warranty.
6. Inspect and tighten all parts regularly.
Replace any worn parts immediately.
17. Individuals with infections and open sores or
wounds should not use the hydrotherapy
spa. Bacteria thrive in warm and hot water.
Always keep your spa disinfected and maintain the proper chemical balance.
7. DANGER—Risk of injury: Do not remove or
alter the covers on the suction fittings. Never
operate the hydrotherapy spa if the suction
guard is missing or broken. If you need to
replace a suction fitting or pump, make sure
you use only manufacturer recommended
replacement parts. Keep hair and body parts
away from the suction guard. Do not allow
long hair to float freely in the water; long hair
should be restrained with a bathing cap.
18. Shower before and after using the hydrotherapy spa. This will remove any deodorant, perspiration, or body oils that could contaminate
the water. Showering after will remove any
residual chemicals and any bacteria that may
have been in the spa.
8. IMPORTANT: Do not allow the hydrotherapy
spa to be exposed to direct sunlight when it
is empty. 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 the warranty.
19. WARNING—The Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter (GFCI), must be tested before
each use. To test the GFCI, press the “test”
button while the hydrotherapy spa is running.
The spa should shut off. Press the “reset”
button. The spa should resume normal operation. If the spa continues to run after the
“test” button is pressed, then the GFCI is
damaged. Do not use the spa until the GFCI
has been repaired or replaced by a qualified
electrician.
9. Do not bring any object into the hydrotherapy
spa that could damage the spa shell.

Using the Hydrotherapy Spa
The hydrotherapy spa is designed to seat five adults.
The spa holds 295 gallons of water and offers a heating system (80°F to 104°F), a filtration system, and
adjustable hydrotherapy jets. Follow the guidelines
below to use and maintain the spa for your long-term
enjoyment.
WIRING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA
the jet button on the console (see USING THE CONTROLS on page 12). Once the spa is running, press
the GFCI “test” button. The spa should shut off. Press
the “reset” button. The spa should resume normal
operation. If the spa continues to run after the “test”
button is pressed, the GFCI is damaged. Do not use
the spa until the GFCI has been repaired or replaced
by a qualified electrician.
The hydrotherapy spa is designed to operate with a
240 volt power source. It must be wired directly into a
grounded circuit with a Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter (GFCI) capable of carrying 30 amps. No
other appliance should be on the same circuit.
Connection of the spa to the 240 volt power
source must be performed by a qualified, licensed
electrician and must comply with all local, state,
and federal electrical codes. The qualified, licensed
electrician can refer to the instructions on the inside of
the electronics package for information about connecting the spa to a 240 volt power source.
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
CONTROLS 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 THE SPA
below). The water will heat at about 6°F per hour with
the cover on. If you are using the spa indoors, and
the room temperature is maintained at 70°F, it will
take approximately 6 to 8 hours for the water to reach
the set temperature.
Once the spa is filled with water, the power can be
turned on. Note: The first time the power is turned on,
the spa will start automatically.
The temperature and the water flow can be set or
changed with the controls on the console (see USING
THE CONTROLS on page 12).
TESTING AND TREATING THE WATER
SECURING THE SPA COVER ON THE SPA
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. A test strip and a chemical
pack are available at your local pool and spa supplier.
Follow the directions carefully on the chemical pack to
test and treat the water. Always keep the chemicals
away from children and pets.
To secure the spa cover,
snap the latches on the
spa cover into the buckles
on the cedar panels.
Latch
To lock the buckles, insert
the key and turn it clockKey
wise 1/4 turn. To unlock
the buckles, insert the key
and turn it counterclockBuckle
wise 1/4 turn. 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.

Maintenance
The hydrotherapy spa is designed to provide years of
enjoyment. Please follow the guidelines below to
properly maintain your 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. 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 in step 5 on page 9.
• Check the pH balance and sanitizer level. Make
adjustments if necessary (see WATER CHEMISTRY on page 14).
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 of this
manual).
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. Proper water maintenance is a complex process. We recommend that you contact your
local pool and spa supplier for information about how
to accomplish this.
Monthly
• Clean the spa cover (see MAINTAINING THE SPA
COVER on this page).
• 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 of this
manual).
CHECKING AND CLEANING THE FILTER
The filter should be checked periodically for build-up
of dirt and oil. If the filter needs to be cleaned, follow
the steps below:
Every Three Months
• Drain the spa and refill it 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. (See CLEANING THE SPA SHELL below.)
1. Turn off the power.

debris. If the cartridge needs to be
cleaned, rinse it with
a hose. If the cartridge is still dirty,
soak it in cleaning
solution from a pool
and spa supply store.
5. Inspect the filter cartridge for damage. Replace the
cartridge if it is damaged.
6. Insert the cleaned or new filter cartridge into the
filter housing.
7. Re-attach the filter cover.
MAINTAINING THE SPA EXTERIOR
The surround is maintenance-free. The surround
should be cleaned with a mild soap solution; do not
use solvents or waxes.
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.

WATER CHEMISTRY
ATTACHING AND REMOVING ACCESS PANEL
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
chemicals—follow the directions on the label.
4. Keep all chemicals out of the reach of children
and pets.
5. Keep containers closed tightly when not in use.
6. Never add water to the chemicals—always add
the chemicals to the water as directed.
7. Always store chemicals in a cool, dry place.
To locate the access panel, refer to the drawing
below. Turn off the power to the spa. To remove the
access panel, first remove the four #10 x 2” Sheet
Metal Screws (7). Remove the Access Panel (2) by
sliding it down and then pulling the bottom away from
the spa. Note: Be careful not to damage the spa
shell as you remove the access panel.
7

MAINTAINING THE PROPER PH BALANCE
The pH factor is a measure of the 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.
7
To re-attach the access panel (2), insert the top of the
access panel under the edge of the spa shell. Slide
the access panel up until the bottom of the access
panel clears the trim along the bottom of the spa.
Then, slide the access panel into place and re-attach
the four #10 x 2” Sheet Metal Screws (7).
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.
DRAINING 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.
To maintain the proper pH level, you should test the
pH of the water regularly. To test the water, purchase
a pH test kit at a pool and spa supplier. 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.
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.
CHANGING THE FILTER CYCLE
The spa will filter the water every 12 hours. The duration of the cycle can be adjusted to last 2 to 5 hours.
Press the temp up or temp down button on the console. When the display begins to flash, press the jet
button. The display will read F2. To change the time,
press the temp up button until the desired time is
reached. Press the jet button to confirm the selection.
As spa usage increases, the duration of the filter
cycle may need to be increased.
14
To drain the hydrotherapy spa, follow the steps below:
WINTER USE AND CARE
1. Using the console, adjust the temperature to the
lowest setting.
2. Shut off the power to the spa, at the circuit breaker
or GFCI.
3. Remove the access panel from the spa (see
ATTACHING AND REMOVING THE ACCESS
PANEL on page 14).
4. Pull the hose out and hold it above the waterline.
Remove the cap, open the valve knob, and attach
a garden hose to the drain hose. Lower the hose
and drain the spa.
The hydrotherapy spa is designed for year-round use.
If you decide to store the spa for the winter, store it in
a warm, dry location. Follow the steps below to winterize the spa.
1. Make sure the power to the spa is turned off.
2. Drain the spa (see DRAINING THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA on the previous page and this page).
3. Remove all remaining water from the spa shell. Dry
the spa shell with towels.
4. Set the air controls 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 jet.
5. Set the air controls to the highest setting and
repeat step 3.
6. Drain the pump (see DRAINING THE PUMP on
this page). Once the water is 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,
remove the pump from the spa and store it in a
climate-controlled room.
7. Clean the spa shell (see page 13).
8. Clean the filter (see page 13).
9. Shut the power off at the breaker. Label the
breaker in such a way that the breaker will not
be turned on accidentally.

6. Re-attach the access panel.
7. Refill the spa and treat the water with chemicals
(see pages 10 and 13).
DRAINING THE PUMP
REPLACING THE LIGHT BULB
If the underwater light burns out, you will need to
remove the access panel to replace it (see ATTACHING
AND REMOVING THE ACCESS PANEL on page 14).
Make sure the spa power is turned off. Next, locate the
light housing. Turn the light housing counterclockwise
and remove it from the spa shell.
After the hydrotherapy spa is drained, the jet pump
should also be drained if the spa will be stored for
more than thirty days or if it may be exposed to freezing temperatures.
Turn off the power to
the spa. To drain the jet
pump, remove the
access panel from the
spa unit (see ATTACHING AND REMOVING
THE ACCESS PANEL
on page 14). Locate
the jet pump inside the
spa. Loosen the indicated collar on the
pump.
