Chlorine-based spa sanitation

chlorine spa chemicalsChlorine is a very popular form of spa water sanitation. Many pool users are immediately familiar with chlorine due to its wide-spread use among pool owners. There is one important thing to remember though. There is a different formulation of chlorine for spas versus pools. This is done because a spa's water environment is both hot instead of cold and typically under 1000 gallons. These two properties make taking care of spa water much different than that of a pool. Simply, the active ingredient in the spa formulation is a DI-CHLOR instead of the TRI-CHLOR found in pool chlorine. Further, a spa chlorine will almost be exclusively found in dry granular form. Many pool chlorines are liquid. The key to using this popular sanitizer in your spa is to make sure you are using the properly formulated product.

A typical routine for a chlorine-only spa sanitation would be to maintain a 2-3 ppm residual of chlorine in the water at all times. You would also need to shock with a non-chlorine shock agent approximately once per week.

Bromine-based spa sanitation

bromine jacuzzi chemicalsAnother form of spa water sanitation is the use of bromine tablets. Bromine tabs are a combination of sodium bromide that is activated by sodium di-chlor. That's right, bromine actually has some chlorine in it. Many bromine users cite a less pungent odor when using this over strictly chlorine. Bromine tabs are distributed through a floating dispenser that allows the bromine to dissolve in the water over time.

A typical routine for a bromine spa sanitation would be to maintain a 2-3 ppm residual of bromine in the water at all times. You would also need to shock with a non-chlorine shock agent approximately once per week.

Nature2 and Leisure Time Mineral Purifiers

nature2 spa water careThough not a solution all by themselves, mineral purifier cartridges can be used to assist your sanitizers in keeping your water clear. The use of a Nature2 or Leisure Time spa purifier cartridge enables you to use less of the traditional sanitizer. When using these purifiers, you can safely maintain a chlorine or bromine level of 0.5ppm instead of 3ppm. These cartridges slide inside of your spa's filter.

The Nature2 Purifier precisely controls water flows through a replaceable cartridge. Inside, a non-electrical reaction "activates" oxygen to kill bacteria, algae, and viruses. Next, Nature2 releases trace amounts of natural, algaestatic and bactericidal minerals into the pool to help prevent bacteria and algae growth.

You'll notice a remarkable difference. Visual clarity and sparkle, even at extremely low levels of residual oxidizer, indicate that the Nature² Purifier is working properly. Nature2 is not a filter. A filter is designed to remove large particles and debris, while Nature² disinfects spa water by killing 99.96% of bacteria, algae and viruses, which are too small to be caught by a filter. So you need both a filter and Nature2.
