How to Unlock Tiger River Spa Controls

Tiger River was a brand of portable home spas owned by Hot Spring, a Watkins Manufacturing hot tub company based in Vista, California. All Tiger River spas came with an electronic control panel for adjusting the temperature of the water, the strength of the jets and other variables. You can lock the control panel of your Tiger River spa to prevent accidental input during bathing or lock the position of the jets. You can also lock the water temperature control separately. Unlocking your Tiger River control panel or temperature control is uncomplicated and will only take a few seconds.
