- Shock the spa with a chlorine or non-chlorine shock once a week
or if the water looks hazy.
- Drain and refill the spa every four months, which is when we recommend
replacing your spa mineral product.
- When you drain your spa check your filter. Clean or replace filter
cartridge when dirty.
- It?s always a good idea to have your spa dealer fully test your
water once you have completed your start-up process to make sure everything
is in line. If you experience any difficulties with balancing or sanitizing,
have your dealer test the water and give you an analysis of what needs
to be done to correct the situation.
- Strong, smelly chlorine odor means you have chloramines, organic
by products of chlorine oxidizing sweat, urine and
other contaminants. Shock the spa to remove chloramines.
- Filters and circulation issues can lead to several
water chemistry issues such as cloudy or hazy water.
Make sure your pump run time
meets the spa manufacturer's requirements and your filter is clean
and in good working condition.
- If your water looks hazy or cloudy, it is full of various particles
that clarifiers bind together so they are large enough
to be removed by your filter. Shocking the spa can
also take care of this process.
- Water supplies contain different levels of natural minerals like
iron, copper or magnesium. These minerals must be removed
from the water with a Metal Out or Sequestering Agent
(see your dealer) to
ensure easier balancing and proper sanitation. If using
our SPA FROG® Mineral
products, make sure you remove the natural water minerals
after filling the spa and before you use the SPA FROG® minerals.
