Put 1/2 of a Tsp of chlorine into the filter compartment. Close the cover, lock it down and press the CLEAN button on the control panel. The spa will run itself for 10 minutes and shut off.
Every 4 months:
Cover Care:Use a 50/50 mixture of Murphy’s Oil Soap and water. Wipe down the cover with that mixture and it will condition and waterproof the cover, helping it last longer.
Steps:Use a clear oil base sealer on the steps, like you would on a wood deck. It will help them last longer and prevent the stain from bleeding from the steps onto your deck or patio.

New spa water should start off with a chlorine level of about 10 p.p.m. (parts per million). This can be read on the test kit as a brownish color. Disregard the word “ideal” on the test kit at all times. To achieve the chlorine level of 10 p.p.m. add about 3 tablespoons of Dichloro granulated chlorine to 300 gallons of water. Chlorine should be added to the filter compartment only with the jet pump running until chlorine has dissolved.
No more chlorine should be added until the test kit shows the chlorine level has been reduced to 3 p.p.m. “free chlorine.” “Free chlorine” is defined as that amount of chlorine left after all bacteria have been destroyed. It takes from 4 to 12 hours for the bacteria to be destroyed.
The simplest way to control the chlorine from this point on is to add about 1 teaspoon full of Dichloro granulated chlorine per person, immediately after each use. A little too much is better than not enough.
It would be helpful to test your spa water each time you use your spa for the first 5 to 6 uses. If the amount of free chlorine is at 3p.p.m. each time you test, then the amount of chlorine you added at your last use was exactly right. If the level is low, you didn’t put in enough, and if the level is high you put in too much. Small fluctuations are normal and should not cause a problem.
Usually after about a week the amount of chlorine you add per person has become routine, and testing weekly will be all that is necessary.
When testing the water you should also test the PH level as well as the chlorine level. PH should be maintained anywhere “between” 7.4 to 8.0 on the test kit. Disregard at all times the word “ideal” printed on the test kit.
The PH will be gradually lowered with the addition of Dichloro chlorine. NEVER add acid to your spa. The PH can be raised by the addition of ordinary baking soda, as in “Arm & Hammer.” 8oz to 16oz of baking soda added to 300 gallons of water will raise the PH from 7.2 to about 8.0 on your test kit. These are the only two chemicals necessary for good spa water.
While there may be many ways to sanitize your spa, we feel this way is the simplest, most effective, and least expensive in all but the most unusual circumstances.
