PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ ALL OF THESE WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS BEFORE INSTALLING AND USING YOUR SPA.

Please be a responsible hut tub spa owner. When installing and using your spa hot tub, please always follow these basic safety precautions. Be certain to explain the safety precautions to all new or occasional users of your spa.

NOTE: A licensed electrician may be required to upgrade your standard receptacle and/or circuit breaker.

 

DANGER -- RISK OF CHILD DROWNING & INJURY: To avoid accidents, ensure that children cannot use the massage spa unless they are supervised at all times. Make sure you always lock the cover after using your spa for children's safety.

 

Lower water temperatures are recommended for children. Children are especially sensitive to hot water.

 

DANGER -- RISK OF INJURY: The suction fittings in this spa are sized to match the specific water flow created by the pump. Should the need arise to replace the suction fittings, or the pump, be sure the flow rates are compatible.

 

Never operate the Outdoor  spa if the suction fitting or filter baskets are broken or missing.

 

Never replace a suction fitting with one that is rated less than the flow rate marked on the original suction fitting.

 

DANGER -- RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK: Install the spa at least 5 feet (1.5m) from all metal surfaces. As an alternative, the spa may be installed within 5 feet (1.5m) of metal surfaces when each metal surface is permanently connected by a minimum 6mm2 solid copper conductor to the outside of the SPA's control box.

 

DANGER -- RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK: Do not permit any external electrical appliances, such as a light, telephone, radio, television and etc., within 5 feet (1.5m) of the spa. Never attempt to operate any electrical device from inside the Outdoor spa

 

WARNING -- TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY

The spa water should never exceed 40˚C (104˚F). Water temperatures between 38˚C (100˚F) and 40˚C are considered safe for a healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are recommended for young children and when spa use exceeds 10 minutes.

 

High water temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal damage during pregnancy. Women who are pregnant, or who think they are pregnant, should always check with their physician prior to spa usage.

 

The use of alcohol, drugs or medication before or during spa use may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning.

 

Persons suffering from obesity, a medical history of heart disease, low or high blood pressure, circulatory system problems or diabetes should consult a physician before using the spa.

 

Persons using medications should consult a physician before using the spa since some medication may induce drowsiness while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation.

 

AVOID RISKS OF HYPERTHERMIA

Prolonged exposure to hot air or water can induce hyperthermia. Hyperthermia occurs when the internal temperature of the body reaches a level above 2˚C to 4˚C the normal body temperature of 37˚C. While hyperthermia has many health benefits, it is important not to allow your body's core temperature to rise above 39.5˚C. Symptoms of excessive hyperthermia include dizziness, lethargy, drowsiness and fainting. The effects of excessive hyperthermia may include:

·         Failure to perceive heat

·         Failure to recognize the need to exit spa

·         Unawareness of impending hazard

·         Fetal damage in pregnant women

·         Physical inability to exit the Outdoor spa

·         Unconsciousness

WARNING: The use of alcohol, drugs, or medication can greatly increase the risk of fatal hyperthermia.

 

AVOID RISKS OF BURNS

·         Before entering a spa, measure the water temperature with an accurate thermometer since the tolerance of temperature-regulating devices may vary by as much as ±5°F (2°C).

·         Test the water with your hand before entering the spa to be sure it's comfortable.

 

FOR SPAS EQUIPPED WITH AUDIO COMPONENTS

Audio components are optional and available on all spa models.

WARNING: Do not connect any auxiliary components – for example, cable, additional speakers, headphones, etc., to the system.

 

Caution: Do not leave audio compartment door open. Replace audio components only with identical components.
