Remove the spa filters. Open and center all spa jets and air valves. Add Clear Choice Spa Prep as per label directions to spa water. Let spa heat and circulate for the proper time period (3-days for new spas, 5-7 days for spas that have been treated with traditional chemical oxidizers). Spas may be used during this purge process, although spa water may become cloudy as the product works.

FILTER SLEEVES Remove the spa cartridge filter from your spa. Wrap the Filter Sleeve around the spa cartridge filter and secure it firmly with the attached fabric ties. Reinstall the unit in your spa. The Filter Sleeve is designed to fit most spa cartridge filters. The sleeve is based on area coverage and may or may not cover your entire spa cartridge filter. See pictures at page bottom. PLEASE NOTE: Clear Choice works best with plain white pleated filters.

SPA COVER Clean top and bottom of cover with a good household degreasing cleaner. Rinse well with clean water. PLEASE NOTE: Keep spa covered at all times when not in use.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

NEW OR EMPTY SPAS Fill the spa with water (no hose Pre-filter needed) and purge your spa using the directions above. (Switching to and using the Clear Choice Spa/Hot Tub System)                                                                                                                                                                                                        

AFTER PURGING SPA Drain spa water. When water stops draining, turn spa power on. Run all spa jets for 5 seconds. This will blow out all the dirty water trapped in the spa plumbing. Do not walk away or leave spa jets on. Now add clean water where the spa cartridge filter(s) install until you see that water flowing into the remaining water in spa. Remove all remaining water and wipe spa dry, using a soft towel or sponge. Close spa drain. Reinstall clean spa filters.                                                                                      

FILL SPA WITH FRESH WATER Attach a new Clear Choice Pre-filter to a standard garden hose. Flush the Pre-filter for 1 minute before placing in spa. Fill spa with water. The Pre-filter removes unwanted metals and minerals from fresh water. Follow the same procedure when adding top off water to spa.                                                                   

ADD SPA DROPS Follow dosage guidelines on back label of Clear Choice Spa Drops. Spa Drops have a shelf life of 2 years.                                                                        

FILTER & SLEEVE CLEANING Weekly: rinse with high pressure water. Monthly: soak overnight in clean water and 3 cups of white vinegar. Rinse spa filters well with high pressure clean water before reinstalling in spa.                                                                                                                                                                      

OZONATORS & UV Clear Choice is compatible with ozone and UV units; they are not required for this natural system to work.                                                                                  

pH & ALKALINITY Normally adjustments are not needed. The Clear Choice system will automatically settle water pH at 7.8 thru 8.4 and stabilize alkalinity. Your spa and skin are protected from damage by the water Pre-filter and special conditioning agents contained in the Spa Prep and the Water Purifier.  If you experience ongoing cloudy water, maintain pH at 7.6-7.8 in the future.                                                                                                                                                                   

OVERDOSING Using too much Clear Choice Spa Drops is the most common problem with this system. Initial overdosing symptoms are excessive buildup of amber or brown residue at the water line and /or around jets. This can also be accompanied by green or brown tinted water. Soon after the water clarity and odor will be affected. If this happens clean your spa filters daily and skip your next 1 - 2 treatments. When you resume weekly Spa Drops treatment reduce your dosage amount and clean spa filters as directed above.     

SILKY RESIDUE Slippery, odorless and colorless residue on spa shell are harmless salts. Residue will dissipate with time.                                                                

WHITE CLOUDY WATER After water changes there is often a 1 or 2 week period of time when water is softening and changing molecularly. During this period, water may look white and cloudy with no signs of overdosing. Add ¼ ounce of Spa Drops, using a measuring spoon.  Rinse your spa filters thoroughly with clean water through a spray nozzle the following day and reinstall.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

ROUGH SURFACE DEPOSITS Sometimes soft or hard deposits will form on spa shell. This can be a result of some final chlorine or bromine salt deposits being flushed from spa plumbing that the Spa Prep purge did not completely remove. Normally these deposits will breakdown and disappear within 2 weeks. If deposits remain, using any standard pH reducer and test strips lower pH to 6.8-7.2.                                                                                                                                                                                        

GREEN TINTED WATER Sometimes phosphates in your source water will create a green tint. This is harmless and should disappear with time. If the green tint continues, contact your local spa dealer. They can test your spa water and supply you with a good phosphate remover to correct the problem. A green tint can also result from not using a fresh Pre-filter when adding water to your spa. Metals like copper or nickel in non-filtered water are oxidizing.                                                                                                                      

LIGHT MUSTY ODOR Normal for a few customers during the first 1 - 4 weeks as the natural spa water system sets up. With time this odor (trapped Co2 gas) will only be noticeable when you open your spa cover and release the steam.                                                                                                                   

FLOATING FLAKES Light flakes in the water are a non-toxic buildup from the spa's plumbing. Clean spa filters more often. If flakes persist; 2oz of Spa Prep and lower the pH to 6.8 using any pH reducer and strips, wait 24 hours then change spa water. Going forward keep the pH at 7.2-7.6 to prevent floaties in the future. You can also remove flakes by putting women’s nylon booties over the spa’s intake grills located about ankle height in the spa foot well (noticeable suction when pumps are running) and clean booties as needed.
