Hot tub chemical maintenance

INITIAL TREATMENT

Fill spa with fresh water through skimmer basket. Do not use water from a water softener. Before adding chemicals, it is important to find out your spa’s water capacity in litres (See opposite)

1. Add 60 ml (2 oz) of  Scale Control (scale Inhibitor) per1000 litres.

2. Once the spa has sufficient water for circulation, turn on power.

3. Add 30 ml. (1 oz) of Spa Clear per 1000 litres.

4. Using the test strips, balance pH to 7.2-7.6, Total alkalinity to 80- 150 ppm.

5. Add a chlorine tablet to  floating dispenser or Chlorine granules directly into water

DAILY MAINTENANCE

1. The spa must be left powered up at all times!

2. Test and maintain ideal levels of pH, Alkalinity, and Chlorine using the test strips.

WEEKLY MAINTENANCE
