It is important to achieve the correct
level of calcium in your water, the levels of which will vary
depending on where you live and where your water supply comes from.
Soft water tends to be low in calcium and hard water tends to be
higher. Every time you top up or refill your hot tub with fresh water
you need to check levels of calcium.
The ideal calcium hardness level for a
hot tub is between 100 -200mg/lIf the level in your hot tub is below
this it could lead to corrosion damage. If you do find the level is
low, then use Hot Tubs Hardness Plus to bring it up to the correct
level. If the level in your hot tub is above this it can lead to the
water appearing cloudy. As a result, calcium can be deposited on the
tub shell, heater element, filter cartridge element and the pipe work
within. To reduce this use Hot Tub No Scale to correct the level.
This also depends on your water source
and should be checked every time fresh water is added. The ideal Total
Alkalinity for your hot tub is between 125 – 150mg/l If it stays
between this it will prevent the pH of the water fluctuating. If the
level falls below the recommend amount the water can become corrosive
causing damage to the hot tub equipment. This being the case, we
suggest using Hot Tub pH Plus to raise levels.
If the level is too high, the water can
become poor in clarity and scale will form. To reduce this use Hot
Tubs pH Minus.
It is essential you
regularly check the pH of your hot tub water using Hot Tub Test
Strips. The ideal pH range is between 7.4 -7.6, this is slightly
alkaline which protects the hot tub and equipment. It also provides
the most comfortable condition for hot tub users and has a good
sanitising efficiency. If the pH level is below 7.4 use Hot Tub pH
Plus to raise the level and if the pH level is above 7.6 use Hot Tubs
pH Minus to reduce the level.
Sanitising of your hot tubs
Using Hot Tubs Bromine is a very effective
Using Hot Tubs Chlorine is another
We recommend that you oxidise your hot tubs
monthly using Hot Tub Non Chlorine Shock. This destroys odours and other
undesirable additions such as perspiration, cosmetics and body oils.
By doing this monthly it improves the comfort and hygiene for hot tubs
Other products also help keep your hot tub
clean, clear and enhance your bathing pleasure.
