Jacuzzi Hot Tubs: Keeping Water Sparkling and Clear

After ordering and installing a Jacuzzi Ontario hot tub, luxury awaits. However, in order to get the most out of your investment and keep sparkling clean, it's important to follow some general care guidelines.

Hot Tub Chemicals

Both chlorine and bromine are suitable chemicals for use in hot tubs. Ontario homeowners often choose bromine over chlorine for several reasons. It has a less strong odour than chlorine and is easier on the skin. Bromine levels are easier to maintain, too.

Regardless of which chemicals you choose, all hot tubs must be monitored regularly for water quality. You'll be testing water for several factors such as alkalinity, pH, calcium hardness, and total dissolved solids. Put water testing kits high on your list of important hot tub accessories and test your water quality at least twice per week. Make sure to use gloves and circulate the water before testing water quality. Take a sample from a depth of at least 30 centimetres below the surface. Read the test results immediately and take any prescribed actions based on the test results.

Shocking Hot Tubs

Hamilton and other Canadian homeowners should "shock" their hot tubs regularly to ensure sanitary conditions and sparkling clean water. In general, you should shock after every use or at least once per week depending on how often you use it. This applies to cheap hot tubs and high-end hot tubs alike. Shocking is a simple process of adding highly concentrated shocking agents that dissolve in the water, eliminating odours and killing bacteria in hot tubs.

Hot tub Toronto experts from Jacuzzi Ontario will let you in on a simple secret for keeping water clean: shower before entering hot tubs. Oil, soap, lotion, deodorant, sweat, and hair styling products are notorious for clouding water and clogging hot tub filters. The cleaner you can keep your energy efficient hot tub, the more efficient it becomes as you don't have to drain it as often. Keep water clear from the beginning by insisting on showers before using hot tubs.
