Keep your new or previously owned Hot Tub water healthy and clean.
Alkalinity and pH Levels Balancing
Both alkalinity and PH levels must be balanced in order for the chlorine/bromine to function correctly. High levels of alkalinity may cause cloudy water. Low concentrations can cause pH bounce where readings fluctuate from one value to another leading to scale formation, corrosion of surfaces, eye irritation and discolouration of the hot tub water.
Filters, with correct maintenance, should last up to eighteen months after which they should be replaced. Please note that a jet spray should never be used to rinse filters.
Once a week
Rinse thoroughly with tap water under pressure and then reinstall into the hot tub.
Every 6 weeks
Rinse thoroughly and then immerse in a bucket of water for twelve hours with the appropriate level of cartridge filter cleaning product. (See product packaging for details). Rinse and leave until bone dry. Before reinstalling, gently tap the filter from each end in order to release any fine residue, which other-wise may reduce the efficiency and life span of the filter.
* Shower before bathing. Remove any make-up, deodorants, talcum powders and false tans to prevent cloudy water and clogging of filters.
* Test the water daily and add appropriate chemicals as necessary to maintain levels as described overleaf
* Follow instructtons on the chemical packaging.
* Only add chemicals to water, not the reverse.
* Wash bathing costumes in plain tap water.
• All chemicals, with the exception of chlorine/bromine granules, should be throughly dissolved in a bucket of warm water (from the hot tub) before adding to the hot tub water with the jets switched on.
* A dedicated bucket and mixing utensils must be used and kept clean by rinsing in tap water.
Must Not Do’s
* Add chemicals when your hot tub is occupied.
