Spa Selections Algaecide solution kills algae
growth that results in green, slimy or cloudy spa or hot tub water. Get started
with an initial dose of Algaecide.
After treating your spa or hot tub with an
initial dose of Algaecide, use a maintenance dose once a week to keep your spa
free of algae growth.
Effective and powerful, Spa Selections Algaecide is also a non-foaming
formula, which means no extra work to reduce foam in your spa or hot tub.
For existing, heavy algae growth, spas and hot tubs must be cleaned before
using Spa Selections Algaecide. Drain and clean the spa and hot tub first. After
heavy growth is removed, refill your spa or hot tub.
Next, add 1 fl. oz. of Algaecide per 400 gallons of water. This
product works best when added in several places directly to spa or hot tub
water, with the pump running. Keep the pump running for at least 30 minutes
after adding algaecide.
To keep your spa and hot tub algae-free, use Spa Selections Algaecide
once a week. Add 1/4 fl. oz. of Algaecide per 400 gallons every 5 to 7 days.
For best results, drain and clean spas and hot tubs at least once a month.
Algae in a hot tub can take many forms and
appear in various colors. Your spa water could appear greenish or cloudy, or
the sides of your hot tub shell could feel slippery and slimy to the touch. Algae
will form in a hot tub when the pH levels in the water are imbalanced or the
sanitizer levels are not kept at the proper levels (between 3 ppm and 5 ppm). Sunlight
makes algae flourish, so don't leave your hot tub uncovered for extended
periods of time. You can prevent visible algae or hot tub slime by using Spa Selections
Algaecide. For an indoor or outdoor spa, use Spa Selections Algaecide on a
weekly basis to eliminate algae in your spa.
Selections has a two-part bromine system that includes Spa Selections Bromine
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 and doesn't irritate your eyes or 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 bathers 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.
