Essential maintenance of your hot tub includes using balancers from time to time. Depending on the area you live in, your water source may have high or low pH readings - both of which aren’t great for keeping your hot tub water fresh and clean.
The water in a hot tub requires different attention from regular water, and it is also different from water in a swimming pool. Due to the higher temperature of hot tub water, there are more necessary steps to take to ensure the water is appropriately sanitized.
Some of the effects of a water reading that has a pH reading that’s too high or low include: dry or itchy skin and irritating to eyes, an increase of scale and erosion in your filter, cloudy water, a strange smell, poor efficiency of your sanitizer, and staining to the hot tub surface. All of these should be avoided - both for the health of your hot tub and that of the people who use it.
To keep the pH of your hot tub water at a neutral level, use a high-quality balancer. SpaChem sells good quality pH plus and pH minus balancers in varying sizes from as small as 1 kg tubs for domestic use, and up to 7 kg containers for bigger jobs.
