Parameter Programming is a means by which the spa owner / user can change the various timing elements and calibrate temperature. The process is simple and intuitive. Only 3 keys are used: UP, DOWN and SET. To program one or more parameters follow the outlined procedure.

  1. Press SET and DOWN keys together. The first message in the menu, FP1 will be displayed.
  2. Use the UP & DOWN keys to scroll thru the messages in the menu.
  3. Press the SET key to display the current value associated with the current message.
  4. Use UP or DOWN keys to increase or decrease the value.
  5. Press SET to lock in the new value and return to the menu.
  6. If another item needs programming go to number 2 above.
  7. To save changes scroll to message SEND and press SET.
  8. To discard changes ad restore previous values scroll to message CANC and press SET.

The menu of parameters is circular. Scrolling is from first to last of from last to first.

When in programming mode please note that this mode will be cancelled if there is no key activity for a period of 60 consecutive seconds. Programming mode is aborted and all changes will be restored to previous values.

        Note: If filtration periods overlap, the most recent period (last) is in effect.
SIL   12:00   Start time of the silence period. This is a period during which nothing will run. It overrides all filtrations, the economy cycle, and temperature sampling. Except if temperature drops below 40 degrees. A spa may be installed near a bedroom and need not come on at specific times.
FP1d 0 0 240 Duration in minutes FP1 timer will run.
FP2d 0 0 240 Duration in minutes FP2 timer will run.

CALB 194 204 218 This is not a time element.  It is one of the distinctive features of the SmarTouch Control System. The number is internal and is indicative of what the processor sees as temperature reading. Increase  this value by 1 to decrease the displayed temperature by a degree. decrease this number by 1 to increase displayed temperature by a degree. For example if the controller is displaying a temperature 2 degrees lower than real temperature, increase the number by 4 to get a correct reading. The total range of this parameter is 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Before doing a calibration Please read warnings note at end of this page.
SEND       This menu message has no numerical value. Pressing SET while it is displayed records and saves all changes made to all parameters.
CANC       This menu message also has no value. Pressing SET while it is displayed discards all changes made to all parameters and restores last saved or previous values.



The recommend maximum temperature of a spa is 104 F. The absolute maximum beyond which no person should ever be exposed to is 108 F. When you calibrate the spa temperature you are doing so at your own risk. Obtain an accurate medical thermometer to check against.
