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.

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 damaged by moisture. Do not use the hydrotherapy spa on rough or sharp surfaces such as gravel or wood chips.

5.The hydrotherapy spa will weigh approximately 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.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 the flow rate of the replacement is compatible. 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 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.

9.Do not bring any object into the hydrotherapy 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 collect 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 manual (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 maintain the proper chemical balance.

18.Shower before and after using the hydrotherapy spa. This will remove any deodorant, perspiration or body oils which could contaminate the water. Showering after will remove any residual chemicals and will also remove any bacteria which may have been in the spa.

19.DANGER—When connecting the power cord (see PLUGGING IN THE HYDROTHERAPY SPA on page 10), 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 damaged.

20.Do not use an extension cord with the hydrotherapy spa. This could damage the motor and will void the warranty.

21.DANGER—If you will be using the hydrotherapy spa outside, do not bury the power cord;

3

you should also keep the power cord away from lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and other similar equipment.

22.WARNING—The 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 “test” button while the 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 hydrotherapy spa until the GFCI has been repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician.

23.DANGER—Risk of electric shock. Keep all electrical appliances such as radios, telephones, 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 mm2) 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.DANGER—Risk of electric shock: Do not set up the hydrotherapy spa within five feet of any metal objects or surfaces. As an alternative, you may use the hydrotherapy spa within 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 mm2) solid copper 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 circulating.

27.DANGER—Risk of drowning: Exercise extreme caution to prevent unauthorized and unsupervised use of the hydrotherapy spa by children. Children must always be supervised.

28.DANGER—To reduce the risk of drowning:

Never use the hydrotherapy spa alone.

Children should not use the hydrotherapy spa unless they are supervised by an adult.

Keep pets away from the hydrotherapy spa at all times.

Always replace and lock the spa cover when the hydrotherapy spa is not in use.

29.WARNING—To 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 minutes, 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.WARNING—To reduce the risk of injury: Always use an accurate thermometer to determine the water temperature before using the hydrotherapy spa.

31.WARNING—To 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 seriously harmed. This is especially important during the first 90 days of the pregnancy.

32.DANGER—To 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 perceive heat or danger and a greater risk of drowning due to a loss of consciousness.

Special note: Individuals suffering from hyperthermia may be unable to realize that they must exit the hydrotherapy spa, and they also may be physically unable to do so.

33.WARNING—To 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.WARNING—To reduce the risk of injury or drowning: Consult your physician about possible 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 and increase the risk of drowning. Other medications can effect blood pressure, heart

4

rate and circulation.

35.Do not use the hydrotherapy spa immediately after strenuous exercise.

36.If you feel pain or dizziness at any time while using the hydrotherapy spa, discontinue use and contact a physician.

37.WARNING—To reduce the risk of injury: It is especially important for persons over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems, such as obesity, heart disease, high or low blood pressure, circulatory problems or diabetes to consult their physician before using this product.

38.WARNING: The spa jets produce a stream of water with relatively high pressure. Prolonged exposure of a localized area of the body may cause bruises to the skin.

39.The included warning sign must be posted 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-

sure the water temperature with an accurate thermometer since the tolerance of waterregulating devices varies.

41.The causes, symptoms and effects of hyperthermia may be described as follows: Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level of several degrees above the normal body temperature of 98.6˚F. The symptoms of hyperthermia include an increase in the internal temperature of the body, dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness and fainting. The effects of hyperthermia 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 inability to exit the spa or hot tub and unconsciousness resulting in danger of drowning. WARNING: The use of alcohol, drugs or medication can greatly increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia.

42.WARNING DECAL PLACEMENT: Locate the decals shown below and familiarize yourself with this information.
