Caring for Your Hot Tub
Keep Your Hot Tub Sparkling Inside and Out
Balancing Your Spa’s Water
Before filling your spa or hot tub, you should have your water source either tested professionally or by using test strips that you can purchase from our Arizona hot tub store. By keeping your spa water chemically balanced, you will avoid many problems that can occur with spa water like algae build-up, poor filtration and water circulation, and wear and tear.
Ideally, you should test the water on a weekly basis to check pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels. If your spa water does not fall within the recommended ranges and remains unbalanced, problems such as cloudy water, scaling, equipment corrosion and skin irritation can occur.

Controlling and preventing bacteria growth is the most important factor to maintaining the health of your spa. Using a sanitizer properly controls and prevents bacteria in your spa and keeps the water clean and fresh. No matter which sanitizing system you use, spa water must be maintained at a sufficiently sanitized level to keep the water clean.
The most commonly recognized sanitizer is chlorine. However, the effectiveness of chlorine depends heavily on the pH level of the spa water. To get the most effective and economical benefit of chlorine, a pH range of 7.2 to 7.8 is recommended.
