Spa Chemicals



Before filling your spa, you need to know the chemical makeup of the source water, or the water you're using to fill your spa. To do this, simply take a sample of the water to your local spa retailer to have it professionally tested, or test the water using Spa & Hot Tub Test Strips from Leisure Time. If testing your spa water yourself, you can get instant answers online about what to do using the Water Analysis program at www.LeisureTimeSpa.com.

Test results will identify what levels of metals and minerals exist in the water and determine if any adjustments are needed to properly adjust your source water once the spa is initially filled.

It's important to realize that spa water is different from pool water. In a spa, the water is heated to between 98-104F, a temperature much warmer and more turbulent than pool water and there fore, needs to be treated differently than pool water.

Leisure Time products are specifically formulated for spas/hot tubs and need to be used to avoid common hot water problems arising from residual soaps, deodorants, perfumes, natural body oils and other cosmetics. Now begin your spa/hot tub experience by filling your spa.



Before filling your spa or hot tub, you should have had your source water tested either professionally or by using one of our Spa & Hot Tub test Strips. It's also important to test your water regularly using test strips or a liquid test kit. By keeping your spa water balanced, you will avoid many problems that occur with spa water. The three most important factors in balancing spa water are pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness. Leisure Time Spa & Hot Tub Test Strips allow for quick testing and are easy to read.


1. If you have an acrylic or fiberglass spa, it is best to protect the finish with Fast Gloss before adding any water. This will help reduce fading from UV rays or any reactions on the spa surface from chemicals.

2. Fill your spa to the center of the skimmer or the middle of the tile line. If you're using a garden hose to fill the spa, remember to run water for several minutes to flush out any bacteria that might have accumulated in the residual water of the hose before putting it in the spa.

3. As you fill the spa, add one bottle of Metal Gon, a sequestering agent, to prevent minerals such as calcium, iron, copper and manganese from staining the spa surfaceor damaging the heater and plumbing.

BLUE WAVE® SPA WATER BALANCE CHEMICALS


SPA pH BALANCE

KEEP YOUR pH BALANCED!
Save time and money by using pH Balance to keep pH and alkalinity levels stable in your spa water. Add pH Balance to freshly filled spa water after the pH and alkalinity are initially balanced. This will help to prevent pH and alkalinity levels from bouncing around. Not recommended for areas with hard water.



SPA ALKALINITY UP

RAISES ALKALINITY TO IDEAL LEVELS!
Balanced water chemistry is the first, most important step to clean, sparkling water. Raising alkalinity to the "safe zone" of 80 to 150 ppm makes your pH easier to keep in line and makes your sanitizer work more effectively. Use Spa Alkalinity Up to stop the eye irritation and corrosion that can result when your alkalinity drops below 80 ppm.

SPA CALCIUM HARDNESS INCREASER

RAISES HARDNESS TO IDEAL LEVELS! FOR AREAS WITH SOFT WATER!
Low calcium can cause corrosion of your spa's plumbing and heating, and stain your spa's surface. When the calcium level of your spa water drops below 200 ppm, just add Calcium Hardness Increaser as needed.
