Water care doesn’t have to feel like rocket science!
Showering helps reduce the amount of sanitizer needed. Your filters will thank you!
Check your sanitizer each time you use your hot tub.
Normal range of chlorine should be between 3-5 ppm.
If low, add the appropriate amount of sanitizer, run jets for 10 minutes & test again.
Use test strips to check for Alkalinity and then pH.
Use Spa Up or Spa Down accordingly to adjust levels. Always add chemistry in the filter area with jets on. Water care products take 12-24 hours to affect spa water.
Test water again after 24 hours, adjust if necessary.
Use test strips to test Calcium Hardness.
If water is soft, add Calcium Booster.
If water is hard, treat weekly with Spa Defender or Stain and Scale.

To clean filters – Use Leisure Time “Instant Cartridge Cleaner” for a filter refresher or for a more serious lean dilute ½ cup of “TSP/90” (Trisodium Phosphate) to 5 gallons of hot water and soak filters for at least 2 hours. Overnight is ideal.
Use a pressure washer to rinse out filters well. Be sure to spray about 1-2 feet from filter.
(Filters can last 2-4 years if maintained properly.)
