Replacement Cell for the Ace salter water system for Hot Spring and Limelight Hot tubs
1. Test and balance spa water
2. Reduce Hardness if needed.
3. Treat for metals if needed.
4. Add Salt
based on your spa model one cup at a time to the filter
compartment with jets running. Run jets for 5 minutes to allow salt to dissolve.
Verify salt level with salt test strips.
5. Add FreshWater® Concentrated Chlorinated Granules as directed on the
bottle to create a chlorine residual of 5 ppm. Allow jets to run for 5 minutes per
jet system, rotating diverter valves.
6. Turn the ACE system ON.
Use your spa’s control panel.
7. Enter Output level.
Access the Water Care menu. Scroll through Output Levels
(0=system off, 10=maximum output) by pressing the soft button near the word
Output on the Standard Control Panel or press the or on the Wireless Remote Control Panel. The recommended Output Level at start-up is between 3 and 5 depending on the spa size.
Note: It may take up to 24 hours for the ACE System Status to register in the green/OK range of the system status bar.
24 Hours Later:
Test spa water with a FreshWater 5-way test strip. Adjust alkalinity and pH as needed. If hardness is above 50 ppm, use additional calcium removers at this time. If there is not a measurable amount of chlorine in the spa water after 24 hours, the ACE system is still cleaning the water. If there are contaminants in the fill water or if you use the spa heavily initially, it may take the ACE system a few days to clean the spa water and keep up with your chlorine demand.
You can still enjoy your spa, simply add FreshWater Concentrated Chlorinated Granules to the water to achieve a chlorine level of 3 ppm. Repeat this as
needed until your test strip shows that the ACE system is sustaining a minimum of 1 ppm residual of chlorine in the water.
