How to use your Spa Tech ST Controller


Congratulations on the purchase of your new Oasis Spa. We want to help you get the most from your spa, right from the start by understanding how to set it up, operate the controls, manage the water and look after your investment. We will break this into easy segments including filling your spa, setting up the control system, turning on the jets and bubbles, adjusting the jets, water maintenance, jet maintenance, cleaning your filters, cleaning your cabinet and spa cover draining your spa, fixing air locks and cleaning water diverters and massage controls.

Once you have unwrapped your new spa and removed the tape from the filter lid, filter face and anywhere else it is time to fill up your spa. Remove the filter face by sliding the cover up and then off. Remove the filter, or the left hand filter with dual filter spas then place your hose where the filter was and fill to the line shown on the sticker inside your spa. Now you can turn on your spa at the power point or the isolation switch.

The spa will start itself up and begin filtering and heating your spa until it reaches the factory set temperature of 38 degrees. It will also begin filtering the water based on the factory settings. If your touchpad is not illuminated you will need to first wake it up by pushing the Power button. Now set the time and adjust the temperature. The time can be set by pushing the TIME button, then the MODE button, use the warm or cool buttons to change the time and the MODE button to confirm each setting. To set the filter times, press the TIME button once, then the MODE button 3 times. Then set the start and end times of each of the filter periods. Using the warm or cool buttons followed by the MODE button to confirm your settings. 2 hours per filter period is suggested, but this can be increased in times of heavy use. The temperature can be set by pushing either the warm or cool buttons, then once the temperature is flashing use the UP and DOWN buttons to select the new desired temperature. If you don’t want people using your spa or changing settings you can lock the control panel by pushing the WARM and COOL buttons at the same time. Unlock by pushing the same buttons again. You can invert the display panel also by pushing the TIME and WARM button at the same time and to swap it back, push them again. There are other non-essential features and settings, which may also be of interest, these are explained in your manual and on your DVD provided in your spa warranty kit.

In spas with one jet pump, turn on your jets by pressing the Jets 1 button. If you have a 2 speed pump, press the button once and the pump will come on at high speed, after 5 seconds will drop back to a low speed. Press the button a second time for high speed. The Jets 2 button will not do anything. If you have a 2 pump spa, pressing the Jets 1 button will turn on your first jet pump. This powers half of the jets. The Jets 2 button turns the second jet pump on and powers the rest of the jets. The air jets can be turned on my pressing the blower button. If you turn any pumps or bubbles on they will always turn themselves off after 30 minutes. To turn your lights on press the LIGHT button, press it again and the lights turn off. Additional presses will turn the lights back on but with a different colour or effect. The mode button will allow you to choose various modes, to move between modes use the WARM or COOL buttons, then press the MODE button again to set that MODE. Standard mode allows the spa to heat whenever it wants to always maintain your set temperature. Economy mode only allows the spa to heat during filtration times, then there is the sleep mode, where the spa will filter but not heat. After you have selected the mode you want, push the MODE button again to lock in your choice.
