The amount of use that a spa receives differs from person to person; some people enjoy using it on a daily basis while others find comfort when used at a social gathering. On the one hand this would require your spa to constantly maintain its temperature at all times of the day (even when not in use), while one the other your spa may only need to be heated every so often (to save on electricity bills). To account for these different scenarios, your Canadian Spa Hot Tub can be configured to heat up only during specific intervals. Depending on the mode your spa is set to, you can change these heating cycles to better suit your needs. Each mode is outlined below.
Your hot tub will maintain its set temperature at all times of the day. The symbol St will be displayed on the panel when in standard mode.
This mode will heat the spa to the temperature set only during filter cycles (see Setting the filter cycle). This mode is used for customers that may not use the spa on a daily basis, but would still like to keep it maintained for occasional use. Ec will be shown when the heater is running, and will alternate with the water temperature when the pump is running.
If you are going to be away for an extended period of time, it’s best to put your spa into this mode to save you some money on electricity costs. This mode will heat the spa up to within 20°F of the temperature set only during the filter cycle. SL will be shown when the heater is running, and will alternate with the water temperature when the pump is running.
