Water Care Advice

Circulation

Proper water circulation will help prevent ensure even distribution of products as well as promote filtration. As the water circulates, it passes through the filter, trapping suspended particles.

Properly circulating hot tub / spa water care products help keep the water inviting and ready for your soaking pleasure. Be sure to run your hot tub / spa circulation system every day to ensure good working order.

Water Care Advice

Filtration

Many hot tub / spa issues are caused by poor filtration-when the filter is dirty or clogged, debris stays in the water. A properly cared for filter captures hair, oils and cosmetics. (Most hot tubs / spas have a cartridge filter.

Because hot tub / spa filters trap many contaminants, cleaning has two steps: spraying off loose debris, then using a filter cleaner to remove oils and other contaminants embedded into the filter. You need to clean your filter every 4 to 6 weeks. Check your owner’s manual or ask your dealer for information on how to remove and clean your filter.

Cleaning

Contaminants such as dirt, oil and even bacteria can accumulate at the waterline, much like a bathtub ring. Regular cleaning preserves hot tub / spa surfaces and prevents unwanted build-up.

Always choose powerful, low-sudsing cleaners that work specifically with hot tub / spa water chemistry. Use them to remove the ring of oil and dirt that serves as a breeding ground for bacteria and to prevent residue from building up around the waterline and inside skimmers.

Draining and Refilling

Regular draining and refilling is a normal part of spa / hot tub maintenance. Over time, the water absorbs and dissolves minerals, chemicals and other soluble material.

Your dealer can usually perform a Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) test to help determine if it’s time to replace your water. High TDS can make the water look dull, become foamy, and develop an odor. How often you drain and refill your spa depends on how often you use it.

This simple formula can help:

Spa / Hot Tub gallons ÷ Daily bathers ÷ 3 = Days between draining

Example: 300 gallons ÷ 2 daily bathers ÷ 3 = 50 days

Note: a bather is one person in the spa for 15-30 minutes.

Chemistry

The chemistry of your hot tub / spa water needs to be checked regularly. Use quality products to maintain the correct levels, including: sanitizer residuals, pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness, metals, and total dissolved solids.

Test Strips can test for pH, total alkalinity, and sanitizer levels with only one strip. Maintaining proper levels will make the water clear and comfortable, kill bacteria that can multiply rapidly in a hot tub / spa, protect surfaces from stains caused by metals, and protect equipment from scale.

There are 3 essential chemical areas to maintain.

1. Sanitization – kills bacteria to help prevent the transmission of disease.

2. Oxidation/shock – removes residues and restores clarity and comfort.

3. Water balance – ensures spa user comfort, water clarity, sanitizer efficiency, and longevity of spa surfaces and equipment.
