3 Easy Steps for Hot Tub Chemical Maintenance

Hot tubs require maintenance; it's just a fact. Your environment, temperature and usage can all affect the cleanliness of your water. But that doesn't mean it has to be hard. With a spa chemical kit, keeping your hot tub water crystal-clear is as easy as 1-2-3! Just follow these three simple steps:


1.       Test the chemical levels in your hot tub using the included test strips.

2.       Use the chemicals as needed according to the instructions included on the individual products.

3.       Enjoy a relaxing, bubbling massage in safe, hygienic spa water!


We put together a quick overview of the chemicals you need to maintain healthy spa water. Armed with these basic tips, you’ll become a hot tub water expert in no time!

Bromine Test Strips


Using a simple color-match system, the included test strips instantly measure the bromine levels in your hot tub.

Brominating Tabs


Bromine is a germ-fighting chemical that will keep your hot tub free of bacteria, even in high temperatures. It works slowly, so it should be used daily.

pH Plus


The pH level of your hot tub should be kept between 7.2-7.8. If it is lower than that, adding pH Plus will return it to the ideal level.

pH Minus


The pH level of your hot tub should be kept between 7.2-7.8. If it is higher than that, adding pH Minus will return it to the ideal level.

Scum Destroyer


When a ring of scum inevitably appears around the wall of your hot tub, it’s time to use this solution. It will dissolve the substances and make it easier for the filter pump to catch and eliminate them from the water.

Take the dirty work out of hot tub maintenance with timely testing and ongoing chemical adjustments. Remember the three simple steps to ensure your spa water is always crystal-clear - test, maintain, enjoy!
