Set-up, Cleaning and Maintenance Tips :
Your Canspa Spa is
equipped with a cartridge filter located in the skimmer/filter well.
Filtering is accomplished when the 2-speed pump, on either high or low
speed, causes water to flow through the polyester mesh of the filter. As
this happens, suspended particles become trapped on the filter's
To ensure optimum
performance, it is necessary to remove and clean the filter cartridge,
usually once every couple of weeks, depending on the usage and water quality. To
accomplish this follow these steps:
1) Turn off the power to
the spa at the home's breaker panel.
2) remover the filter
3) Remove the filter
cartridges by turning the filter and lifting it out pulling it up
and away from the filter pipe.
4) Using a garden hose
with a high pressure nozzle, rinse the debris from the filter pleats.
Continue until you have rinsed all the filter pleats. Periodically, the
filter will need a more thorough cleaning to remove imbedded oils and

spa with fresh water to the recommended level. The water line should
be approximately half way up the top skimmer.
5) You may
want to bleed air from the filter canister and pumps to ensure the
pumps will be primed. Look for tiny plastic thumb screws on your
filter and your pumps and unscrew briefly to let the air escape.
6) If you
have a timer, set your spa to filter on low speed for a minimum of 3
hours for every twelve hour period.
Never use both bromine and chlorine in your tub at the same time.
Treatment to Fresh Water
1) Once the
temperature of your hot tub reaches about 80 degrees Fahrenheit (30
degrees Celsius), you can start adding chemicals. Warm water will
allow the granular chemicals to dissolve properly.
2 ) Test and
adjust the pH of the water to 7.6 - 8.2 by adding either a capful of
up or pH
down (add pH up if the pH tests low and vice versa). Allow the
water to filter for 30 minutes before retesting the pH.
3) Add 1
capful of a stain and scale control product like protect
plus and 1 capful of spa water clarifier. Adding 2 ounces
of an enzyme based product like natural
clear will clarify the water and also reduce scum-lines and
odors caused by body oils and cosmetic products.
4) Test and
