Help and Advice
What do I need to remember?
Always check the hot tub display regularly and ensure the temperature is roughly where you expect it to be. It is recommended you check it in the morning, afternoon, and last thing at night. It is always good to physically check the water temperature with your hand too.
The hot tub needs to be powered on continually to ensure the water is cleaned and heated. This is indicated by the green ‘filter’ and red ‘heater’ light both being on. When both are on, all is good, when both are off, the unit is fully shut down.
The temperature will go up by roughly one degree an hour when not in use, and roughly one degree an hour when in use. This depends on several factors including weather, usage, etc.
How do I operate the hot tub?
Take off the lid and place it somewhere safe where it will not be sat on or damaged. Be mindful that each clip has a safety catch on the front which you can slide up or down first (to prevent children opening).
Remove the pool float when the hot tub is in use to avoid the smell of chlorine and for children to not come into contact with the chemical.
The bubbles can be activated by pressing the bubbles button. The bubbles will switch off after approx. 15 minutes (in case it is left on by accident whilst unattended) but you may turn back on again if desired.
To apply the lid, place on top of hot tub, place the skirt all the way around, and then connect the four clips.
How do I maintain the hot tub?
Don't forget, you should be checking the temperature regularly (morning, afternoon and night). When you are cleaning the hot tub, it's a good idea to check the water level and top up if required. Simply fill to the indicated line approximately 12 inches down from the top of the tub - there's no need to fill to the brim.
The filter should be cleaned, ideally, daily. To do so, first switch the unit off by pressing either, or both heater and filter buttons (not simultaneously) so the red and green light go out. Then screw the provided caps onto the pipe ports on the inside of the hot tub. Doing this stops water being pumped over the floor when cleaning the filter. You should be able to screw the caps on with one finger only, if it takes any force to do so, take off and try again.
Once the heater / pump is switched off and the caps are on. You can unscrew the large black cap on the unit itself. Inside, you will see a filter, rather like a car air, or vacuum cleaner filter. Clean this using the provided brush, and also wash the filter under a tap or hose to get it clean. Also brush the blue / green sides. Also clean the metal filter which sits underneath the paper filter in the same manner. Insert the metal filter upright (like a hat). Then insert the paper filter which can be inserted back either way up. Apply the black cover, remove both caps, and then switch back on. Ensure both red and green light are on and water is flowing. Once done, check there is no water leaving the black cap, and tighten if necessary.
To keep the tub chemically clean, always ensure there are approx. 2 slow-release chlorine tablets in the blue pool float (these can take up to 48 hours to dissolve and prevent over chlorination). This is usage dependent, so little use will require less chlorine and heavy use, and not-so-clean water, will require more chlorine (try three at a time). Ensure you remove the pool float when the hot tub is in use to avoid the smell of chlorine and for children to not come into contact with the chemical.
