IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION READ ALL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath does not recommend spa water temperatures in excess of 104 F. Water temperatures in excess of 104 F and prolonged periods of use can raise the internal human body temperature excessively and impair the body’s ability to regulate its internal temperature.
The Alexa The Alexa™, by Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath, is a portable whirlpool spa which comes with integrated electric heater, filter, skimmer and whirlpool system. The 60" X 72" spa includes a factory installed wood skirt and foam insulation around the spa shell to ensure better heat retention.
Inspection and Shipping Claims Check for shipping damage upon receipt of the spa. Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath is not responsible for damage to the spa sustained during shipping. If damage is evident before unpacking, see instructions regarding shipping claims on the outside of the carton and immediately file a claim with the carrier.
Electrical Requirements Your Alexa, as it comes from the factory, requires a 115 VAC 20 AMP electrical outlet and must be in a grounded separate circuit having no other appliance connected in that circuit. If you do not have a 115 VAC 20 AMP circuit, a qualified electrician should be called in to install the necessary wiring.
Several appropriate timers are available, including one made by Intermatic, Model #P171-32, which you can buy from your Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath Dealer (JWB PN 5400000). Follow the timer manufacturer's instructions for installation and operation.
Test for water quality, then add treatment chemi- cals to ensure proper levels. All Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath spas are factory tested for proper op- eration and water tight connections prior to shipping. If leaks or other malfunctions are detected, immediately notify your Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath dealer or Authorized Service Agent, or call Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath, (510) 938-7411 for Warranty Service.
Function Selector Switch To ensure your safety and allow easy operation, your spa is equipped with an air-activated function selector switch located on the control panel at the rim, near the front corner of the spa. This push-button switch selects the following four functions in the continuous sequence indi- cated: 1.
Normal Operation Whirlpool System You can enjoy your spa with or without activating the whirlpool. Either way, bathing in your spa can be pleasur- able, as well as therapeutic. For a more invigorating spa experience, you can take advantage of the built-in whirlpool system. To do this, select the WHIRLPOOL mode.
Obtain a water quality test kit designed espe- cially for spas from your Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath dealer. The test kit must be of the type which allows you to test for the disinfectant (chlorine) level, pH, and total alkalinity.
Water Chemistry (continued) Superchlorinate your spa every two weeks when heavily used. If using sodium dichlor, add one heaping tablespoon for each 150 gallons of spa water. Scrub the spa surfaces with this solution to remove any oily deposits. This will ensure that any bacteria or algae which are resistant to the normal disinfectant level are killed.
(available from your Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath dealer or most pool supply stores). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use. Another method is to soak the filter cartridge in a plastic pail containing a mild solution of trisodium phos- phate (TSP) and water.
Factory Installed Redwood Skirt Your Alexa spa is supplied with a factory-installed redwood skirt which completely surrounds the spa. The door can be opened for routine maintenance, setting the timer, and for testing the GFCI before use. The skirt is made of kiln-dried redwood and can be left natural to weather, or you may choose to apply a stain or clear finish.

™ The Alexa Portable Whirlpool spa requires a separate 115VAC 20 AMP capacity electrical supply.

Such a voltage drop would not only cause the unit to malfunction, but it may also cause permanent damage to the spa's electrical system.
