Maintaining Your Spa

Welcome to our Spa School - Below we have compiled some helpful tips and hints as well as answers to some frequently asked questions. If you cannot find the answers to your questions on this page, please do not hesitate to contact us.

• Chlorine or Bromine?
** For warranty purposes always use ARCTIC PURE products - available only at Spatacular Hot Tubs.

Chlorine is a stronger more efficient sanitizer, but can be sharper on the senses and skin ... In which case we would recommend Bromine.

Bromine is a softer sanitizer, still effective but without the harsh chemical smell and less skin irritation.

• Start Up
Remember to wait 15 minutes between steps.

• Fill dispenser with sanitizer tablets (set @ 1 chlorine, set @ 1-2 bromine)

• Add I puck to skimmer basket

• Add 3 ounces BEST DEFENSE

• Add 3 ounces SPA PERFECT

• Weekly Maintenance

• Dip strip in water, compare to chart on bottle side

• To adjust ph, use ADJUST UP to increase (1 ounce per block); use ADJUST DOWN to decrease (1 ounce per block)

• To raise alkalinity use PERFECT BALANCE (do not add more than 2 ounces in 15 minute intervals to avoid cloudy water)

• To increase sanitizer add one puck to skimmer basket

• Add 3 ounces BEST DEFENSE

• Add 3 ounces SPA PERFECT

• Helpful Hints

• Cloudy water? ... use 1 ounce of EASY CLEAR

• Foamy water? ... use FOAM DISSOLVE (add nozzel to bottle and spray at foam)

• Wait 24 hours between adding BEST DEFENSE and EASY CLEAR (combination will cause cloudy water)

• After heavy use add 1-2 ounces of REFRESH

• Change filter once a month
