Maintaining Proper Spa pH Levels

Helps Chlorine Work More Effectively
Low pH levels in spa water can cause the chlorine or bromine sanitizer to not work like it should. Easily increase the pH of the water to allow the disinfectant to work more effectively.
Reduces Equipment Corrosion
Ensuring the hot tub water maintains a proper pH level can help protect against damage to the spa equipment due to corrosion. Check the pH of the water frequently.
Prevents Eye and Skin Irritation
pH levels that are too high or too low can cause problems, such as eye irritation and skin dryness. That’s why it’s important to maintain proper pH levels at all times.

How to Use Spa Selections pH Increaser

Measure Water pH Levels
Using test strips or a test kit, measure the pH of your spa or hot tub water. Refer to the table on the packaging to determine the correct amount of Spa Selections pH Increaser needed.
Add Product to Filter Skimmer
Next, add the proper amount of Spa Selections pH Increaser to the filter skimmer with the spa circulation system running. Let the system run for 30 minutes.
Recheck pH Levels
Once the system has run for 30 minutes, measure the pH of the water again. If the water pH is still too low, add more pH Increaser as needed.



Now that you know how to maintain your spa from startup to refill, here are a few quick tips that will make spa care even easier: 

  • If your spa is used more than three times per week, water testing and maintenance will need to be performed more frequently.
  • When you add a chemical to the water, always allow it to circulate for at least one minute with jets on prior to adding another chemical.
  • Circulate and filter the water for at least eight hours every day. This will ensure the proper cleansing of your spa water.
Spa Selections Bromine is a two-part system, including Spa Selections Brominating Tablets and Spa Selections Brom-Start. Overall, bromine tends to be more popular among spa owners because unlike chlorine, bromine is effective over a wider pH range, doesn't irritate your eyes and will not bleach bathing suits. Additionally, bromine is still an effective sanitizer in its combined form and doesn't smell. Many spa owners, however, elect to sanitize with chlorine. Chlorine is traditionally used in pools and is an effective sanitizer and oxidizer. Spa Selections Chlorinating Granules are easy to use and keep the water sparkling clean.
How often you shock spa water depends on the sanitizer and the number of users  in a 24-hour period. If you are using Spa Selections Bromine Tablets and Spa Selections Brom-Start, it is recommended that you shock each time you finish using your spa. If you are using Spa Selections Chlorinating Granules, it is recommended that you shock at least one time per week. It may be necessary to shock more often if the user load is heavy or the water is cloudy.
