This control top may be rectangular or oval, but it works the same.
This optional Auxiliary Spa Side Control allows you to control the four basic functions of your spa from a convenient secondary location.
The Pump key is used to turn the pump on or off at selected speeds. If the pump is a single speed pump, the Pump key is used to turn it on and off. If the pump is a two speed pump, the first press will turn on the pump low speed. The second press will change the pump to high speed. The third press will turn the pump off or return to a heat or filtration mode (see note). A built-in timer will shut the pump off 20 minutes after it has been started unless the user does so manually. When the pump is on, the Pump On Indicator will appear above the Pump Key. NOTE: You may not be able to turn the pump off if it has started an internal heat or filtration cycle. If the spa is in a heat or filter cycle, pressing the pump key will start the high speed. Pressing it again will return it to the filter or heat mode with the low speed running. This is easily identified by observing the status of the "Heater On Indicator" or the "Filter Mode Indicator".
Air Pump Key
The Air Pump Key is used to turn the air blower pump on or off. The first press of the Auxiliary will turn it on. A second press will turn if off. The Air Pump will automatically turn itself off after 20 minutes. When the Air Pump is on, the Auxiliary On Light will appear above the Air pump (auxiliary) Key.
The Light key is used to turn light on or off. The first press of the Light key will turn the light on. A second press will turn the light off. The light will automatically turn itself off after 2 hours.
PROGRAMMING NUMBER of FILTER CYCLES:
You may choose to filter your spa 1, 2, or 3 times daily as

It is recommended that the system is powered up at a time when the
cycles do not interfere with sleeping hours.
PROGRAMMING CYCLE DURATION:
You may choose to filter your spa 60, 120, 180, or 480 minutes per cycle as required to maintain clean, sanitary water. Press and hold the Light key for 5 seconds. The current setting for filtration cycle duration will be displayed (60, 120, 180, 480). Do nothing and the control will revert to the monitoring mode, OR, to change the frequency, press the Up or Down Arrow key. To start the filter cycle at that time, press the light key before the display returns to temperature readout, and hold it for 5 seconds, until the filter cycle starts (blower will come on). If the temperature displays, simply press the light key until the number appears, release, then press and hold for 5 seconds.

Special Instructions for
the 2006 SE Vista Silver Spas: In this model the
programming is for the newest circulation pumps. When you set the
programming for winter it should be 3 times 480 minutes for 24 hours of
circulation. As the spa is showing a higher temperature than is
the set point you programmed, as you get into warmer weather, you need
to reduce the filtering to conserve energy. The circ pump used is
stronger than any of the normal circ pumps, so it will still filter
19,000 gallons per day with 8 hours of filtering. So the minimum
would be two times 6 hours in full hot summer. You will find a
need to add just a little more shock and chlorine to compensate, but
this is still better filtering than in most any other spa. The idea is
to give better thermal controls over summer use, by giving you the
ability to set the filter cycles. When you set the filter cycles the
main jet pump will come on and run for 8 minutes then goes off and the
circ pump will continue to filter the water. If the main jet pump
continues to run on low speed for the duration of the filter cycle,
then call us for service.
When power is applied, or there is a temporary loss of power, the system will initiate its default programming. The filtration will continue per the jumper settings. The maintained temperature will default to 95ºF. The freeze protection feature will stay in effect.
The Temperature Set Key is used to set the desired water temperature. Press and hold this key to increase the desired temperature setting (press, release, then press and hold to decrease). The temperature can be adjusted in 1ºF increments from 41ºF to 104ºF (or 5ºC to 40ºC.). The desired temperature setting will remain in the display for 5 seconds as confirmation of the new value, after 5 seconds the display will return to display the present water temperature.
When the water temperature drops 1ºF lower than the desired temperature, the heater will be turned on until the water temperature reaches the desired temperature plus 1ºF. The Heater On Indicator will appear on the function panel when it is on. The Heater On Light Indicator will blink on the function panel whenever there is a call for heat and the heater has not yet been powered.
If the water temperature falls below 40ºF, the system will start a special process to circulate the water in the pipes. Pump and heater will be turned on for one minute. The message FrE will be displayed throughout the special cycle. During this cycle all other functions of the unit (except the alarms) are disabled.
If the water temperature exceeds 115ºF at the High Temperature probe, the system will display the message HL and will turn the heater off. If the water temperature exceeds 122ºF at the High Temperature probe, the high limit circuit will turn off all outputs. In either case, after the water temperature has cooled down, pressing any key on the spaside panel control will restart the system.
If the spa water temperature does not seem to be elevated, the HL reading may have been caused by poor water flow or electrical line interference (e.g. thunderstorms, voltage surges, etc.). Simply reset and monitor the system.
NOTE: After the unit cools down below 115ºF, the Freeze Protection Circuit can automatically engage if needed.
