DANGER - Risk of Accidental Drowning: strict precautions must be taken to prevent unauthorized access by children. To avoid accidents, ensure that children can not use the spa unless supervised at all times.

 

DANGER - Risk of Injury: The suction fittings spa are sized based on the specific water flow created by the pump. If it becomes necessary to replace the suction fittings or the pump, ensure that the flow rates are compatible. Never use a spa with suction fittings broken or missing. Never replace a suction fitting another fitting a flow rate lower than that marked on the original suction fitting.

 

DANGER - Risk of electric shock: Install at least 1.5 m (5 ft) from all metal surfaces. A spa can be installed as an alternative to less than 1.5 m (5 ft) of metal surfaces if each metal surface is permanently connected by a solid copper conductor for No. 8 AWG (8.4 mm2 ) minimum to the connector on the power supply provided for this purpose.

 

DANGER - Risk of electric shock: Do not leave electrical appliances, such as a lamp, telephone, radio or television within 1.5 m (5 ft) spa.

 

WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury:

• Before using a spa, measure the water temperature with an accurate thermometer since the tolerance of devices to regulate the water temperature ranges from ± 3 ° C (± 5 ° F).

• The spa water should never be at a temperature over 40 ° C (104 ° F). Water temperatures between 37 and 40 ° C (100 and 104 ° F) are considered safe for a healthy adult

• Lower water temperatures are recommended for young children and if the spa is used for more than 10 minutes.

• The use of alcohol, drugs or medication before or during spa use may lead to unconsciousness and drowning.

• Individuals taking medication should consult their doctor before using the spa since some medication may induce drowsiness while others may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation.

• Individuals suffering from obesity or with a medical history of heart disease, hypertension or hypotension, circulatory problems, multiple sclerosis, thyroid problems or diabetes should consult their doctor before using a spa.

• Since excessive water temperatures pose a high risk of fetal malformation during the first months of pregnancy, pregnant or at risk of being should limit spa water temperatures to 37 ° C (100 ° F ), it is advisable to consult a physician before using a spa.

• Heat stroke is dangerous conditions triggered by excessive heat. They particularly affect the very young, the elderly, individuals under the influence of alcohol and drugs and those taking certain medications. Symptoms include: sweating, dizziness, nausea, dizziness, convulsions, rapid pulse, shallow breathing and in extreme cases, unconsciousness. In case of suspected heat stroke, seek medical service. Put victim on his back with head slightly elevated to facilitate breathing and apply an ice pack on his head.

• Telephone numbers of emergency such as hospital, doctor, ambulance, emergency medical personnel and police should be easily accessible and displayed next to a phone.

 

Connect a spa on a device to detect grounding GFCI. In addition, a means of disconnection must be incorporated into the fixed wiring in accordance with local electrical codes.

 

Strict precautions must be taken to prevent unauthorized access by children. To avoid accidents, ensure that children can not use the spa unless supervised at all times.

To avoid the risk of drowning, keep the filter clean and not clogged. Do not remove the lid of the vacuum aspiration. Do not change the vacuum systems or filtration.

Use caution when entering a spa and leaving. When changing position, to be sure your grip before applying any weight, because the refraction of the water can be misleading and surfaces can be slippery when wet.

Do not stand in water for an extended period. Set reasonable time limits. Exit the spa, cool, take a shower, relax and repeat a stay in a spa.
