It is very important to maintain your spa’s water, keeping it sanitized and the elements balanced.
Here is a checklist of items you may need, depending on your water’s quality:
- 5-way test strips
- Sodium Dichlor
- pH up
- pH down
All of these chemicals can be purchased at a local pool or hot tub store.
First, you will dip the test strip into the water. The strip will give you a reading of your hot tub’s water immediately, letting you know what type of chemicals it needs.
Now, it is time to sanitize your water. It’s very common for hot tub users to want to use tablets and floaters – however, don’t do this. It is important to use granular chlorine and MPS, which is a non-chlorine oxidizing shock.
Before pouring your chemicals into the filter basket, activate your high-speed jet pump so the chemicals are distributed evenly throughout the plumbing line.
Wait 15 minutes for the chemicals to circulate with the jets on. Now, you’re ready to enjoy the best your Realtree Spa can offer!
All of this information can be found in your Owner’s Manual. You can also watch our How to Treat Your Water video here.
