Spa Chemicals

chemicalsBy maintaining good pool spa and hot tub water quality and balance, you will be making your jaccuzis a safer, more enjoyable place for you and company. All that needs to be understood is a little bit about water chemistry. However, it’s a lot simpler than it sounds. There are different levels of pH, calcium, alkalinity and heavy metals in water before you put it into your pool spa and hot tub and they are something you have to keep an eye on and maintain while they are in your jacuzzi.

Regular tap water may be safe to drink but it is not necessarily safe for your pool spa and hot tub. Normal tap water is usually filled with minerals (such as calcium and heavy metals) and microorganisms that may not be visible to the naked eye. Properly testing and treating your jacuzzi water is essential for the health of the pool spa and hot tub as well as the people using it. Proper chemical maintenance will help control and prevent the following:

•    Bacteria, algae, and fungi, which can spread disease and infection to humans.
•    Staining and scale build-up on the spa shell, equipment, and piping.
•    Murky, foamy or discolored water in the pool spa and hot tub jaccuzis

Maintaining the quality of the pool spa and hot tub water within specified limits will increase your enjoyment of the spa and prolong and protect the life of its equipment. It is a fairly simple task, but it requires regular maintenance because the water chemistry involved is a balance of pH, alkalinity, calcium and heavy metals. A careless attitude when it comes to your jacuzzi water maintenance will result in poor and potentially unhealthful conditions for bathing and possible damage to your pool spa and hot tub. So by understanding the basic parts of water chemistry and how to control it will ultimately save you money in the long run as well when it comes to your jacuzzi.
