Hot Tub Buying Guide


Best hot tub chemicals?

What are the best chemicals for your hot tub? The chemicals that keep your tub in the balance you need so that you can enjoy the wonderful hydrotherapy your tub has for you. Really it doesn't matter the brand you use, just as long as you are diligent in your routine maintenance and keep those levels in check. You will need different products for different issues depending on your hot tub, its use and the water you use to fill it.

The local spa store is a great resource for chemicals. The local home improvement store will also have a selection of chemicals that will fit your needs. The under sink cabinet in your very own kitchen will have many of the products you will need as well.

You will want to be sure to keep your tub clean, your water levels regulated, and your cover well looked after. Your tub water needs to be santized to prevent bacteria from building up. You have choices in your sanitizer, but you do not have a choice whether to sanitize or not. So you need to be sure your chlorine (or bromine) levels are in check. You need to keep the pH levels in your tub at a healthy range - not too acidic, not too alkaline. And you want to be sure that your calcium hardness is where it should be. If this is out of whack due to hard or soft water you can get scale or cloudy water. You also want to be sure that your total alkinity is within a good range. This will help your tub maintain a pH level.

You will need a test kit to be able to test your water to see what the current levels are and to retest once you have added to appropriate and recommended amounts of each of the chemicals you use to keep your water clean and healthy.

You will find out what the best chemicals are for your tub over time. You will discover what you need to add and when depending on the water you use to fill, the amount of regular use the tub gets and the particular quirks that seem to come up with your tub and your soakers.

Remember that regular maintenance is much easier than waiting til big issues arise and having to contend with them. So whatever chemicals you use, do regular tests and keep those levels balanced. A clean and healthy tub will be waiting for you to hop on in and soak.
