Hot Tub Buying Guide


How to clean scale off of a hot tub

Maintaining your hot tub can be a challenging task with new problems arising now and again. Remember to stay on top of regular maintenance to help reduce these issues. Nevertheless, even the most diligent hot tub owner will have issues arise every now and then. Balancing your hot tub's chemical levels is a constant task, but consider it a labor of love ? love for that stress reducing soak in your near future.

One problem that can arise from imbalanced chemicals is known as hot tub scale. It can appear like small crystals on the interior of the hot tub shell and feels like sandpaper. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it can be damaging to the hot tub's heater and tubing. So, let's get rid of that scale.

Hot tub scale is the result of high levels of calcium hardness. It's important to keep the calcium hardness (CH) levels in check as well as the pH and total alkinity, and of course, your sanitizer. Remember that calcium Is a mineral found in the water you have put into the tub. So your water source can be the culprit. Is your water hard? Is it treated with a softeneer? Do you have an alternative water source - maybe a different tap that isn't treated?

The calcium is attaching itself to the hot tub's surface and you need it to get back where it came from ? the water itself. This is how you remove calcium deposits from a hot tub. To do this, you need to lower the pH and TA levels. Following your manufacturer's recommendations or the instructions on your chemical products is always suggested. You will want to add your pH down and wait approximately 6 hours before testing again. If you test to early you may get premature results before the tub water has time to adjust and then you may panic adding more or another chemical. Relax and wait.

It's important to deal with the scale so as to avoid any damage to your tub's inner workings as well as to make it comfortable for you to enjoy. Balancing the levels in your hot tub is important to maintaining a clean and comfortable hot tub.
