Chlorine effectively sanitizes hot tubs and spas
to provide sparkling-clean water with no sediment.
Spa Selections Chlorinating Granules help
control algae, kill bacteria and destroy organic materials.
Formulated to optimize usage and comfort, these chlorinating granules
prevent chlorine loss in hot tub water.
Add the recommended dosage of Spa Selections
Chlorinating Granules during evening hours while the filter pump is running.
Each 0.4 to 0.6 ounces of chlorinating granules
provides approximately 3 ppm to 5 ppm available chlorine in 500 gallons of
water. It’s important to frequently check chlorine levels with test strips to ensure
the comfort and safety of users.
Some oils, lotions, fragrances, and cleansers can cause foaming or
cloudy water and might react with chlorine sanitizers, reducing their efficacy.
A common cause of foam in spas and hot tubs is
the turbulent water combined with lotions, soaps and detergents from bathers and their
swimsuits. Showering before entering the spa and using Spa Selections Foam Out
helps reduce the amount of foaming. Organic waste build-up can also cause
foaming. If you are sanitizing your spa with bromine, you should shock your spa
with Spa Selections Non-Chlorine Shock Oxidizer on a regular basis to oxidize
the waste out of the water and reduce foaming.
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 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.
