What do I Need for My Hot Tub

To enjoy your spa safely and prevent unnecessary mechanical failures, you will need a few important items.

The most important step is sanitizing the water. You can do this by adding bromine or chlorine to the spa, however we recommend using bromine for sanitization. Bromine has less odor than chlorine and is easier on your skin and eyes.

Use any 1 of these methods:

  • 2 part bromine system: 1 bottle Enhance, 1 bottle Activate
  • bromine pucks: 1 bottle bromine pucks, 1 bottle Activate. Activate is a non-chlorine shock that works in 2 ways; it quickly brings up the bromine level and also burns off bromamines, reducing the chemical smell and skin irritation of your spa water.
  • granular chlorine: 1 bottle of granular chlorine, 1 bottle Activate. Activate is a non-chlorine shock that works in 2 ways; it quickly brings up the chlorine level and also burns off chloramines, reducing the chemical smell and skin irritation of your spa water.

** If your spa has an ozone generator, you will require a lot less sanitizer and non-chlorine shock.

Use the following products to adjust the pH and alkalinity level:

Use a stain and scale reducing solution to avoid spa discoloration and build-up of scale on your mechanical parts. Chemicals for stain and scale control like protect plus, prevent damage caused by minerals in your water.

Last, you need a filter for your spa that will need to be cleaned monthly and replaced after 12 months of use. Soak your filter in cartridge cleaner solution to remove collected oils.

A water clarifying agent like natural clear and defoamer are also essential.
