Fresh Water Start Up Guide

 

Step #1:

  • Fill the hot tub with water (Make sure the power to your tub is off)

    • Highlife Models – Place pillow over the drain (you can leave on for 48 hours)
    • Limelight Models – Place pillow tightly up against the suction fitting with the jets on high for 2-4 hours)
  • Add 6-10 oz Stain & Scale Control (this can be done while the tub is filling)

Step #2:

  • Turn on breaker
