Heat & Filtration Settings for your Sundance Spa

We all want to enjoy warm, clean, clear hot tub water, and heat and filter settings as well as regular filter maintenance all play a significant part in making it happen.

In this blog we will give you instructions on how to set your heat mode & filter cycles.

Heating Mode

‚ÄčThere are 3 different heat modes on your Sundance Spa.

"Economy" mode will allow your hot tub to heat only between the hours of 5 PM and 7 AM. These hours are not programmable.

"Day" mode will allow the water to heat only between the hours of 7.00 AM and 5.00 PM. These hours are also not programmable.

"Auto" allows the heater to heat at all times, in order to maintain your preset temperature.

We reccommend setting your spa to "Auto" so that the water is always warm and ready for you to use.

If you ever notice that your hot tub water temperature has dropped, but there are no error messages displayed on your control panel, you should check that the spa is set to "Auto" mode.

If it has been changed to "Economy" or "Day" the water temperature will gradually drop until the next heat cycle comes on later in the day.

Here are the instructions for setting the Heating Mode on your Sundance Spa.
