Swimspas – Chemical Problem Solving

If you own a swim spa or hot tubs, the importance of maintaining it properly cannot be ignored. The last thing you want is to have to spend a ton of money on repairs or replacements simply because of a lack of care. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the more common problems people experience in regards to chemical usage in swimspas. Read on to find out more.

First and foremost, let’s begin with cloudy water, which is a common problem experienced by a lot of swim spa owners. There are a number of different reasons why this could occur. This includes pH levels being too high; not enough sanitizer being used; or a dirty filter. When the water turns green, this is an indication that algae are present, because you have not used enough sanitizer. In these cases, you should add more chlorine or bromine. Bear in mind that the problem could take a couple of days to clear. If there is too much chlorine in your swim spa, this is a sign that the alkali levels of the water are not high enough. In this instance, you should use an alkalinity increaser. What about foamy water? If this happens, it’s a strong signal that detergents and oils have been allowed to build up. You should never use domestic cleaners when cleaning swim spas, so avoid this from now on. If the water is still foamy, it is worth considering replacing it with fresh water.
