To access on your smart device - you need:
Microsoft OneDrive account online (most people may already have a OneDrive account), and
OneDrive application on your mobile phone or tablet (3rd party apps for Symbian & Blackberry).
All free - no strings and although there are multiple steps required, very easy to set up and well worth it once activated!
Mobile phone - Android, Apple iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Nokia Symbian, or Tablets

Instructions (IMPORTANT - do them in order as below):
1. Main Computer:
OneDrive account setup/download is linked here (if you don't already have one):
OneDrive offers 5GB of online storage for free - it's just like an online backup hard drive with auto synchronisation between linked devices.
Follow the steps to sign up for / install OneDrive unless you already have an account. During set-up the program pre-selects document folders you might want to sync for your own personal back up/online syncing. You can either set this feature up when it asks, or untick the folders automatically ticked, and press 'next'. Your folders can be set up at any time.
2. Mobile Phone or Tablet:
Next, download the OneDrive Application for your type of phone or tablet.
OneDrive supports Android phones & tablets, iPhone, iPad, Windows phones, Symbian and Blackberry mobile phones.
Phone applications supported are listed here for Apple, Android and Windows phones / tablets:
Blackberry and Symbian devices – you will need to search the appropriate App stores for Apps that access OneDrive.
Follow the steps on screen to set up Skydrive on your phone.
You've set up your phone!
You will also need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) onto your phone or tablet. Other .pdf viewers may not open or render files correctly.
Email us at email@example.com to request permission to access our OneDrive shared files - we will need the email address used for your OneDrive account or OneDrive will not allow sharing. This is not an automated step, it's a manual step where we need to use your email address to send a sharing request. Please be patient, this may be done anytime from immediately to overnight.
4. Main computer:
* IMPORTANT* You may need to sign into your OneDrive account to see that we have sent the invitation, however you should receive email notification.
Once you have completed these instructions and been emailed a 'share' confirmation, you will be able to access our ‘Spa Techs’ shared folder from within the OneDrive App on your phone.
On your phone click the ‘Shared’ icon and a new screen 'Shared With Me' will appear with a folder ‘Spa Techs’.
Click on this folder to access our technical files all categorised by brand.
You can now view these files on-site (provided you have 3G/4G or wifi access)
You now have access to our 'Spa Techs' folder and all the files within, for viewing on your mobile phone.
The most valuable tool in your toolbox!
*Beware - many of these files are of considerable size ranging from 100KB - 90MB. The file size is displayed under each file. Most are well under 3MB but are still substantial in size (ensure the data component of your phone contract is of adequate size or unwanted extra data download charges may apply. We recommend using wi-fi connection wherever possible*
The spa manuals and information available on OneDrive far exceed those that are available from our online public download page plus technical manuals not available for public download.
Additionally, OneDrive offers viewing the file whilst onsite in front of the spa without permanently installing the files, which require valuable storage space, however this also means the same file will require re-downloading each time it's required.
The total combined folder size of the 'spa techs' database exceeds 1.6GB.
Remember now that you've created a OneDrive account online, you can now make use of 5GB of online storage space to safeguard your own computer files. No-one can see your files unless you wish to, and create a share folder such as the 'Spa Techs' share folder we have created for you.
A great reason to buy a smart phone and download OneDrive!!!

Additional ‘How to' files describing symptoms and resolutions to numerous spa specific problems/faults.
