I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your problem is: You have just brought a secound hand spa, you are woundering what sort of chemicals etc are required, there are no instuctions with it
If your spa is the type that you fill once, then you must treat it just like a swiming pool. Go to the local pool supplies store. They will be happy to set you up. Don't forget PH testing kit! Test it every day. And I prefer non chlorine chemicals. It's also helpfull to have a small submersible pump in case you need to replace the water sometime. Happy soaking!
Feel free contact me again!

The condition you see on the topside control is known as "watchdog" Which usually means that the spa thinks it's "overheating"
Turn off the power to the spa for a couple of minutes, then restart, Watch the topside control if the temp. starts to climb & read a lot hotter than the actual water temp. Then it goes into watchdog, most likely you have a bad temp sensor. In some cases just resetting the spa will clear the watchdog & everything works fine. (Voltage fluctuations, "spikes" can freak out the electronics & the tub goes into watchdog to protect itself) If the spa immediately goes into watchdog when you reset it, you might have a bad board. (Let's pray it's not) 90% of the time it's a bad temp. sensor.

If the air tube is still connected to the air button on the side of the tub and you are pushing it with no results then either the motor is no good, the air button is no good or the air switch in the box is no good.
process of elimination, start with the pump. take the switch off the motor or out of the box and make sure you can get the motor to come on. If the motor comes on then move to the air switch and hook it back up and see if you can blow into the air switch with a new air button or a straw and see if the switch will activate the pump. if it does then you most likely have a bad air button ($12). If you cannot get it to activate the pump then the air switch is bad ($21).

You will need to pull the apron. If it is faux marble, you will need to be careful not to break it. Usually the apron is only held on by silicone adhesive.
