Keep Getting F1 Code

On page 29 it shows that "F1" indicates the spa is running the factory default 1 hour filtration cycle. It indicates this should run one 30-minute cycle every 12 hours.
If your spa is set to the F1 filtration option, and is activating more than once every 12 hours, there may be an issue with it's controls/brain. Or, if for some reason you have power fluctuations such that the spa temporarily loses power, it'll probably reset to the factory default F1 setting each time (which also means it'll start the cycles over again).
You might try using this Owner's Manual to change the filtration settings and see if the issue goes away.
If however the display shows "FL1" than this indicates a water flow problem. This may be due to a dirty filter that needs cleaned, or an older filter that simply needs replaced. This will primarily be whichever filter is being used for heat/circulation (such as if you have the optional circulation pump installed). The FL1 code could also mean there is a malfunctioning flow switch. (see page 39)

Is there a clear 3/8 line going to a barb on the front of pump 2? If so... that line might need a restrictor in it to cut the flow down. clamp that line with pair of lock pliers and see if it stops the FL1 error. That line is supposed to draw water through that pump so it don't get cold. but, It could be the problem. If the FL1 stops with the pliers deal, restrict that flow down to like an 1/8 inch or under.

In some cases the FL1 error flashes when pump #2 is turned on if the micro filter needs to be replaced.
Try running the jets with the filter removed, if no error code shows then a new filter will fix it.
