By Sam Rutter Subscribe to RSS | March 29th 2012 | Views:

Sometimes dealing with the chemicals and filters that are required to keep your hot tub water clean and well maintained can be a bit complicated. Relax. You don’t need an advanced degree in chemistry. Here's a primer that will help clarify the things you need to do to continue enjoying your hot tub in a safe and healthy manner.

An introduction to Hot tub Chlorine

There are chlorine tablets and chlorine granules that can be used in a different concentration in hot tubs. If you use chlorine for a hot tub, you need to watch certain parameters. The levels that need to be regularly checked are, total alkalinity, pH and sanitizer (Chlorine or Bromine) level. The correct use of chemicals will maintain the water in a clean and healthy condition.

Changing Your Water

Be sure to change your water about every six to eight months depending on the amount of use of your hot tub. Water should be changed in a timely fashion to make sure chemical bi-products to not get overly concentrated in the water. When this happens, it can be very difficult to balance your water’s chemistry. Changing the water often also allows you to wipe down the spa’s surface to ensure minerals are not building up on the hot tub shell. Changing water is a simple task and you, your family, and guests will be glad you did.

An introduction to eco pur spa filters

Did you know nothing is more important for hot tub water quality than the filtration system? A clogged or worn-out filter will not effectively trap contaminants. A clogged filter can also put an unnecessary strain on the hot tub’s pump. The frequency with which it is necessary to clean your eco pur spa filters will depend on your chosen method of water sanitation and how often the tub is used. Ideally, you should rinse your eco pur filter every week, or bi-weekly if the hot tub is not frequently used. Eco Pur filters should also be replaced every six to eight months. If your water quality starts to deteriorate unexpectedly then the cause is very likely to be worn-out filters.

If you own a spa pool or hot tub, it is important to understand that it requires a certain amount of owner maintenance to ensure it operates suitably and that the water remains clean and healthy.
