Sanitize Your Hot Tub Properly

You want your Edmonton hot tub to be clean and pleasant to relax in. Some methods for cleaning its water are effective but have side effects, and we want to help you figure out what works for you. The last thing anyone wants is irritated or itchy skin after soaking in their hot tub, but you can stay rest assured that multiple methods are available. Here are a few things you can try to make sure your hot tub is more sanitized.

Consider what could be getting in the hot tub from the people using it

Lotions as well as less desirable substances that stick to our skin can end up in your hot tub water, which can cause the water to look, feel, or smell bad. Showering before entering your hot tub is one great way to keep the water cleaner than it would be otherwise. How well you enforce this on the others that use your hot tub can make a difference.

Put in chlorine or bromine at least a few hours ahead of time

If you put chlorine in your hot tub right before you sit inside, you may end up with that irritated, itchy skin we mentioned before. But putting it in a few hours before anyone gets in can prevent this. Most of what chlorine does is to oxidize the water, meaning that it breaks down the contaminants that you don’t want in there. About 10% of what chlorine does is disinfect it, and this amount should be sufficient as long as you let the chemical sit for several hours.

If chlorine is still too harsh for your skin, consider bromine, which actually lasts longer.

Purchase spa chemicals

Hot tub chemicals designed specifically for use in spa water may be more expensive, but they are worth it--especially if you have sensitive skin. Please contact us at World of Spas to find out what we have available.

After doing a ton of research we purchased a 16 swim spa from Dynasty Spas and can honestly say it has been one of the best purchases we've ever made! We use it everyday of the year. It's great exercise and keeps the kids out of troubletestimonials
