It’s all pretty straight forward, all the products are labelled with instructions on them.
1/Bromine tablet, once a week in the filter.
2/Sodium bromine 2tbs after you drain and refill the tub.
3/Spa Shock granules; twice-weekly one or two teaspoons at the time.
If your hot tub gets a lot of use, or you have a lot of people in it at once—or both—you may want to up that to 3/4 times a week.
Used weekly, it does a great job of getting rid of organic contaminants (skin cells, lotions, etc.), and clearing the water if it’s become a little cloudy due to those contaminants.
Once treated with spa shock, water quality and clarity is usually completely restored.
Some people look at spa shock as a get-out-of-jail card to be used after a large bather load or if the spa water is not maintained correctly for a certain amount of time. Although not a fix-all, Spa Shock can bring spa water back to a higher level of clarity.
Key to keeping the water in shape is good bathers hygiene;
Always, Always, Always shower/rinse before using your hot tub. Every time. This is important, as the shower washes off your natural body oils, which will otherwise be washed off by the water in your hot tub. The shower will also remove any chemicals on your body, such as deodorant, aftershave, perfume, as well as any traces of makeup.
Sand is a big no-no.
Don’t switch off your hot tub, it’s designed to run 24/7 and it is very energy efficient. Circulating the water will keep it free of contaminants by passing it through your hot tub’s filter.
Filters, they’re on the job whenever your hot tub’s running, and your hot tub filters need a good cleaning to work properly. You can clean them by spraying them with good water pressure, every 2-4 days.
Make Sure Children Use The Bathroom Before They Get In, Make sure that everyone who uses your inflatable hot tub knows they must NOT pee in the water. it’s a big no-no and it will ruin the chemical balance and it can become dangerous as chloramine will form in the tub if you inhale chloramine by breathing in the steam off your hot tub, it can cause respiratory problems such as coughing, wheezing, and sore throats. It can even cause asthma.
Keep The Lid On When you are not using your inflatable hot tub, always remember to put the lid on, as well as the hot tub cover if you have one. This is a simple yet vital way to make sure nothing falls into the water. And, of course, it keeps young children safe by not letting them get into the hot tub unattended.
Use the net provided to catch all contaminants; dead skin, hair etc.. after each soak this way it will not clog the filter and reduce the need for chemical.
Replace The Water At some point you will need to empty out your hot tub and refill it with clean water. If you leave the water in for too long, it will start to look cloudy, it can build up a film on the surface, and it might even begin to smell. From experience depending on the traffic into the tub drain it once every 5 weeks. If you have a party and a bunch of new guests soaking in your tub, once the party is over it might be a good time to drain it and start fresh.
Keep your hot tub protected from the sun with the cover provided.
