Easy Clear Water: Water Quality Maintenance

Spa Water Balance

Maintaining the quality of the water within specified limits will serve to enhance your enjoyment and prolong the life of the spa's equipment. It is a fairly simple task, but it requires regular attention because the water chemistry involved is a balance of several factors. There is no simple formula, and there is no avoiding it. A careless attitude in regard to water maintenance will result in poor and potentially unhealthful conditions for soaking and even damage to your spa. For specific guidance on maintaining water quality, consult your Authorized Jacuzzi Premium dealer who can recommend appropriate chemical products for sanitizing and maintaining your spa.

CAUTION: Never store spa chemicals inside the spa's equipment bay.

pH Control

pH is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity of water and is measured on a scale of 0 to 14. The midpoint of 7 is said to be neutral, above which is alkaline and below which is acidic. In spa water, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN A SLIGHTLY ALKALINE CONDITION OF 7.2 to 7.8. Problems become proportionately severe the further outside of this range the water gets. A low pH will be corrosive to metals in the spa equipment. A high pH will cause minerals to deposit on the interior surface (scaling). In addition, the ability of the sanitation agents to keep the spa clean is severely affected as the pH moves beyond the ideal range. That is why almost all spa water test kits contain a measure for pH as well as sanitizer.

Sanitizing

To destroy bacteria and organic compounds in the spa water, a sanitizer must be used regularly. Chlorine and Bromine are the two most popular sanitizers used to date. Many other additives are available for your spa. Some are necessary to compensate for out-of-balance water, some aid in cosmetic water treatment and others simply alter the feel or smell of the water. Your Authorized Jacuzzi Premium dealer can advise you on the use of these additives.

CAUTION: Do not use chlorine tablets (Trichlor) in your spa. This chemical can have an extremely corrosive effect on certain materials in the spa. Damage caused by use of this chemical, or improper use of any chemicals, is not covered under the spa's warranty.


Optional CD Ozone Water Maintenance System

If you have elected to have your spa equipped with the optional Jacuzzi Premium CD Ozone water purification system you will find that your water
stays fresh and clear with significantly less chemical sanitizer usage. You will also probably be able to go longer between complete spa drainings. The CD ozone unit operates in conjunction with the circulation pump.
