Hot Tub Buying Guide


Use vitamin C to neutralize chlorine

Chlorine is a great sanitizer for water. But it can also have some negative side effects for some folks. Chlorine can cause skin irritations, breathing related troubles, dry hair, itchy skin and more. Many hot tub owners use chlorine or chlorine products to treat their water. In fact, many of us have water that is treated with chlorine coming through our taps and showerheads.

There is a way to neutralize chlorine in water. Vitamin C interacts with chlorine making it harmless. There are products on the market for just this purpose. You can find Vitamin C tablets and powders to put into your hot tub to neutralize the chlorine so you can soak without any of the negative effects of the chlorine to your skin and health.

Vitamin C as both ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate are effective at neutralizing chlorine and are not hazardous. Use 2.5 parts ascorbic acid per every one part chlorine in the hot tub. Ascorbic acid is often sold as a stain remover. Beware that ascorbic acid can lower your pH levels. If you choose to use sodium ascorbate, the ratio is 2.8 parts of sodium ascorbate per every one part chlorine. Sodium ascorbate will not change your pH levels.

Check with your hot tub's manufacturers' recommendation when choosing to use vitamin C to neutralize the chlorine in the water.

And be sure to keep your water clean. You need to use a sanitizer to keep bacteria controlled. Your hot tub is a great place to relax and enjoy, but it's also a wonderful place for algae, bacteria and other unpleasant things to grow. You don't want to compromise your hot tub's water in any way.
