Ensuring your water is properly balanced with the right hot tub chemicals is essential if you want to have the best possible experience. Without maintaining the correct levels, you’re more likely to end up with scale and cloudy water.
Sanitisers can also become ineffective if the conditions are not right, which means dirty water and a higher consumption of things like hot tub chlorine or bromine as you try to ensure the water is properly sanitised.
You will need to use hot tub test strips or kits to regularly check on your water’s balance. If your hot tub experiences frequent use, you may want to test it every day. However, if it's not heavily used every day, testing three times a week should be more than sufficient.
If your pH levels are too low (the ideal range is between 7.2-7.6), you will likely need to add pH plus, also known as soda ash. Water with a pH that’s too low will be acidic, which creates an environment that stops sanitisers from working as well. Water with a pH that’s too low can also be corrosive, which will do expensive damage to parts of your hot tub equipment.
If your pH levels are too high, your water will be basic. This may mean that you encounter cloudy water that's unpleasant to bathe in. Scale may also build up due to increased calcium hardness levels as a result of high pH. You can use pH minus, also known as dry acid, to combat issues with increased pH.
