barefoot spa- filter and bib ****

We just bought a house that came with a hot tub. The spa does not have any paperwork and no one in this area services a Barefoot spa. I am trying to figure out how to clean the filter (and where is it?) and how to drain it. I found the bib **** in the side panel, hooked it up to the hose and opened the hose/gasket. Nothing drained. I can not seem to figure out why gravity draining did not work- is there a drain inside the tub I have to "open" as well? I was able to find the manual for the spa on-line, but there are no diagrams and it does not look like anything we have (the cover picture). Any ideas on the filter and drain?

not at all familar with that brand, however.........does it have a skimmer ? an area where the water is drawn out and down to the pump ? generally that is where the filter is,

look inside the equipment panel / area there may be a valve shut off that controls water flow to the hose bib for draining ?

if not you can either syphon the water out or use a sump pump and pump it out.

hope this helps steve
