Spa hot tub chemical guide


Understanding filtration, water balance and disinfection will help keep your spa clean

Your spa is a source of relaxation and enjoyment. To get the most satisfaction out of your spa, the water must look clear, enticing and be free of bacteria. Three important factors contributing to this are:

  • Filtration
  • Water balance
  • Disinfection.

Proper chemical maintenance is important to ensure that your hot tub stays clean and functional. But what is the perfect amount of chemicals to use? Unfortunately there is no easy answer to these questions as they depend on your current hot tub situation. Hot tub size, environmental conditions and spa usage all affect the amount of chemicals to use in your spa. What we suggest is to read the label on the back of the bottle to determine the manufacturer’s recommended usage.
