Weekly Maintenance:

  • Test water for bromine (or chlorine), Alkalinity, PH, and total hardness with test strips (adjust levels as needed). We also offer FREE water testing in our store!
  • Add 2oz per 300 gallons of spa water of Spa Oxidizing Shock maintain.
  • Add 2oz of Stain & Scale Control and 1oz of Natural Clarifier. If your spa has an Ozonator, you may find that you don’t need to use Natural Clarifier because ozone acts as a flocculent, allowing smaller particles to be filtered out.

Soak filter overnight in Filter Cleaner & Degreaser monthly, or more frequently if spa has high usage, (never run spa without filter).

Drain your spa water every 3-4 months depending on use. If your spa has an Ozonator, changing your spa water may only be necessary every 8-12 months.

*If you are new to water maintenance, test your spa water daily to ensure you have a proper sanitizer level. If you are using an Ozonator, you can keep the bromine/chlorine level at the low end of ‘ideal’ range on your test strips. You will find that your spa will use less sanitizer because the Ozone is killing most of the bacteria and viruses. Because you are using less chemicals with an Ozonator, balancing will be easier and less time consuming.
