Attention New Spa Owner!

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Jacuzzi® spa! The following is a list of automated functions performed by your spa. These functions are listed below in an attempt to alleviate any operational concerns you may have during the first24-hoursof ownership! Also listed below are important maintenance recommendations you should observe on a regular basis to protect your new investment.

Automated Operations

Approximately two minutes after power is applied to the spa, the first filtration/heating cycle turns on pump 1. With models J-270andJ-280an 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 spa’s water chemistry within the following parameters as defined by the Association of Pool And Spa Professionals/USA:

pH

7.4-7.6

 

 

Free Chlorine

3.0-4.0ppm

 

 

Free Bromine

2.0-4.0ppm

 

 

Total Alkalinity

100-120ppm

 

 

Calcium Hardness

150-250ppm

 

 

! TO DECREASE RISK OF INFECTION OR DISEASE!Always maintain your spas filter as outlined below to ensure healthy spa water. Refer page 37 “Water Quality Maintenance” for additional information.

Required Filter Maintenance

Your new spa is equipped with an advanced water filtration system that provides unsurpassed water quality! To ensure maximum water quality at all times, you should clean the filter cartridge once a month, or earlier as necessary. See page 32 for detailed filter cartridge cleaning/replacement instructions.

Required Water Replacement

! 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 page 37 for additional information.

3.3Important 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 copper conductor not smaller than No. 6 AWG (10 mm²).

4.All field installed metal components such as rails, ladders, drains or other similar hardware within 10 feet (3m) of the spa shall be bonded to the equipment grounding buss with copper conductors not smaller than No. 6 AWG (10 mm²).

5.SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

3.4General Electrical Safety Instructions

Your new Jacuzzi® spa is equipped with a“state-of-the-art”equipment system. It contains the most advanced safety andself-protectiveequipment in the industry. Nonetheless, this spa must be installed properly to ensure dependable usage. Please contact your local Jacuzzi dealer or local building department should you have any questions regarding your installation.

Proper grounding is extremely important. Jacuzzi 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 insure installation conforms to local building codes.

8

J-200Series

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 at all times.

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 side panels and access to the jet components, especially on the side with the equipment bay.

!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 andmildew. This can cause health risk. Over time, this can damage certain surfaces, surroundings, and equipment.

9

J-200Series

4.1Outdoor Location

In selecting the ideal outdoor location for your spa, we suggest that you take into consideration:

The proximity to changing area and shelter (especially in colder 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).

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-offwater 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.

4.2Indoor Location

For indoor installations many factors need to be considered before installing a spa 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 the entire contents of the spa. Be sure to make provisions for ceilings and 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.

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 which can damage certain surfaces and/ or surroundings.

10

J-200Series

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 to local codes or authorities is not covered under the spas warranty. Please consult your local state or city building ordinances.

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.
