Soothing Spa Tips

  1. Because a spa is a warm water environment, there are a couple of key things you will need to do once a week to keep the water healthy and free from nasty microbes & bacteria
  2. Without getting into a chemistry lesson, maintaining the correct Ph and alkalinity levels are absolutely necessary for a healthy spa, and using a simple test strip is a great way of keeping Ph and alkalinity on track
  3. Then it's just a matter of keeping the water clean and bacteria free with a regular dose of a sanitiser like chlorine, bromine or peroxide
  4. Cleaning the cartridge filter regularly is also extremely important for a healthy spa as is a regular vacuum, brush and shock treatment after use to eliminate natural body oils, lotions and sunscreen
