Introduction & General Tips

This program is intended for a residential spa with average use. It is not designed for public, commercial or semi-public spas. If your spa is used more than 3 times per week, you should check and make chemical additions more often than suggested.

pH 7.2 - 7.8
Alkalinity 80 - 120 ppm
Calcium Hardness 150 - 400 ppm
Sanitizer 3 - 5 ppm

  • Prior to each use, test spa water to ensure that sanitizer level is in proper range of 3-5 ppm.
  • If spa is used more than three times per week, water testing and maintenance will need to be performed more frequently.
  • Filter cycle should be run a minimum of 6-8 hours per day.
  • To ensure water quality and keep the water easy to balance, Leisure Time recommends draining your spa water at least every three months, or more often if the spa is used frequently.
