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.
2. Use the hydrotherapy spa only as described
in this manual.
3. The hydrotherapy spa is intended for home
use only. Do not use this product in any
commercial, rental or institutional setting.
4. Use the hydrotherapy spa only on a level
surface. Do not use the hydrotherapy spa on
carpet or other materials that could be dam-
aged by moisture. Do not use the hydrother-
apy spa on rough or sharp surfaces such as
gravel or wood chips.
5. The hydrotherapy spa will weigh approxi-
mately 1800 pounds when it is filled with
water. Make sure the location you select for
the hydrotherapy spa will support this
weight, plus the weight of the occupants.
6. Inspect and tighten all parts regularly.
Replace any worn parts immediately.
7. DANGERÑRisk 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
the flow rate of the replacement is compati-
ble. 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.
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 150ûF 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.
9. Do not bring any object into the hydrothera-
py spa that could damage the spa shell.
10. Never insert any object into any opening.
11. Do not use breakable containers in or near
the hydrotherapy spa.
12. Do not sit on the spa cover or place objects
on it. It is not designed to support weight.
13. Remove any water or debris which may col-
lect on the spa cover.
14. Keep children under the age 12 and pets
away from the hydrotherapy spa when it is
not in use.
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 man-
ual (see pages 10 and 14). Failure to do so
may cause injury to users or damage to the
spa, and it will void the warranty.
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 main-
tain the proper chemical balance.
18. Shower before and after using the hydrother-
apy spa. This will remove any deodorant,
perspiration or body oils which could conta-
minate the water. Showering after will
remove any residual chemicals and will also
remove any bacteria which may have been in
the spa.
19. DANGERÑWhen connecting the power cord
(see PLUGGING IN THE HYDROTHERAPY
SPA on page 10), plug the power cord direct-
ly 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 damaged.
20. Do not use an extension cord with the
hydrotherapy spa. This could damage the
motor and will void the warranty.
21. DANGERÑIf you will be using the hydrother-
apy spa outside, do not bury the power cord;

you should also keep the power cord away
from lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and
other similar equipment.
22. WARNINGÑThe power cord is equipped with
a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI),
located at the end of the power cord. The
GFCI must be tested before each use. To test
the GFCI, press the ÒtestÓ button while the
spa is running. The spa should shut off.
Press the ÒresetÓ button. The spa should
resume normal operation. If the spa contin-
ues 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 electri-
cian.
23. DANGERÑRisk of electric shock. Keep all
electrical appliances such as radios, tele-
phones, televisions and lights at least five
feet away from the water.
24. A wire connector is provided on the pump
motor of this unit to connect a minimum No.
8 AWG (804 mm
2
) solid copper conductor
between this unit and any metal equipment,
electrical enclosure made of metal, metal
water pipes, or conduit within five feet of the
unit.
25. DANGERÑRisk of electric shock: Do not set
up the hydrotherapy spa within five feet of
any metal objects or surfaces. As an alterna-
tive, you may use the hydrotherapy spa with-
in five feet of metal objects if each metal
object is permanently connected to the wire
connector on the pump motor of this unit by
a minimum No. 8 AWG (804 mm
2
) solid cop-
per conductor (see instruction 24).
26. Do not operate the pump motor when the spa
is empty. The pump motor may be seriously
damaged if it is operated without water circu-
lating.
27. DANGERÑRisk of drowning: Exercise

at all times.
¥ Always replace and lock the spa cover
when the hydrotherapy spa is not in use.
29. WARNINGÑTo reduce the risk of injury: The
water temperature should never exceed
104¡F. Temperatures between 100¡F and
104¡F are considered to be safe for healthy
adults. However, if you plan to remain in the
hydrotherapy spa for more than 10 to 15 min-
utes, a lower temperature is recommended.
Lower temperatures are also recommended
for children. Children should not be allowed
to swim under the surface of the water in the
spa.
30. WARNINGÑTo reduce the risk of injury:
Always use an accurate thermometer to
determine the water temperature before
using the hydrotherapy spa.
31. WARNINGÑTo reduce the risk of injury:
Pregnant women should consult with their
physician before using the hydrotherapy spa.
Pregnant women should not use the
hydrotherapy spa if the water temperature is
above 100¡F; the unborn child could be seri-
ously harmed. This is especially important
during the first 90 days of the pregnancy.
32. DANGERÑTo reduce the risk of drowning:
Prolonged immersion in the hydrotherapy
spa may cause hyperthermia, a dangerous
condition which occurs when the internal
body temperature rises several degrees
above the normal body temperature of 98.6¡F.
The symptoms of hyperthermia are nausea,
dizziness, drowsiness and fainting. Effects
include: a lack of awareness, inability to per-
ceive heat or danger and a greater risk of
drowning due to a loss of consciousness.

hyperthermia may be unable to realize that
they must exit the hydrotherapy spa, and
they also may be physically unable to do so.
33. WARNINGÑTo reduce the risk of drowning:
Do not use the hydrotherapy spa if you are
under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Heat
from the water, in conjunction with alcohol or
drugs can cause loss of consciousness.
34. WARNINGÑTo reduce the risk of injury or
drowning: Consult your physician about pos-
sible side-effects of any medications you
may be taking before using the hydrotherapy
spa. Heat from the water, in conjunction with
some medications may cause drowsiness

where all users of the spa can see and read
it. (See POSTING THE WARNING SIGN on
page 2.)
40. Before entering a spa, the user should mea-

thermia may be described as follows:
Hyperthermia occurs when the internal tem-
perature of the body reaches a level of sever-
al degrees above the normal body tempera-
ture of 98.6ûF. The symptoms of hyperthermia

ture of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsi-
ness and fainting. The effects of hyperther-
mia include failure to perceive heat; failure to
recognize the need to exit the spa or hot tub;
unawareness of impending hazard; fetal
damage in pregnant women; physical inabili-
ty to exit the spa or hot tub and uncon-
sciousness resulting in danger of drowning.
