Product Description

Spa Alkalinity Increaser raises the Total Alkalinity reading and prevents fluctuations during pH adjustment. Alkalinity readings should be maintained between 80 – 150ppm.

1. Check the water on a weekly basis with a quality test kit and ensure the Total Alkalinity reading is above 80ppm.
2. If the reading is below 80ppm and to raise the Total Alkalinity reading in 10ppm increments, add 30g of Spa Alkalinity Increaser per 1000lts of water and add directly to the water (with circulation running).
3. Re-test the water to ensure you have attained the desired reading.
4. Only add Spa Alkalinity Increaser in stages and always re-test after additions.
5. If you experience difficulties with the water please contact your local dealer.

    Would highly recommend SpaChem for spa chemicals, and the knowledge and support that is available to you if you have any queries, questions, or problems. We have had a soft tub before but this is our first hot tub, Gavin talked me through all the chemicals and provided some excellent advice on timetabling of the chemicals. He even managed to get them to me within 24 hours so we could enjoy the tub over the weekend. Definitely my go-to for chemicals and advice from now on.

pH Water Balancing

  • What can happen if I have high pH and alkaline levels.
    The potential issues of having unbalanced alkaline levels in your hot tub water are that it can have an adverse effect on your hot tub's appearance, cause knock-on problems to your pH readings and even affect your skin.
    High pH readings on the other hand can cause scale build upon your hot tub components and deposits on the surface of your spa, can contribute to the appearance of cloudy, dull, or even foaming water and affect the efficiency of your water sanitizer which in turn adds risk to your friends and family using your hot tub.
  • What do you do if you have high pH and alkalinity in your hot tub

    Recommendations for addressing high levels of pH and alkalinity.

    When it comes to balancing the pH and alkalinity of your hot tub water, they follow the same principles; if your levels are low, use a plus increaser and a Total Alkalinity Increaser, always remember the rule of thumb and balance your Total Alkalinity first, then your pH, if your levels are too high, use a pH & Alkalinity Reducer or Minus product!

    If your alkalinity is too high, we would recommend that you… use a combined pH & Alkalinity Reducer as typically if your water is either high in pH or naturally high pH from the source then your Alkalinity normally follows suit.

    If your pH is too high, we would recommend that you…. use a combined pH & Alkalinity Reducer as typically if your water is either high in Alkalinity or naturally high TA from the source then your pH normally follows suit.

    To ensure that you get the right hot tub chemistry, remember the rule of thumb, and always balance your alkalinity before you address any issues with your pH readings.

  • What is the difference between pH and alkalinity?

    The water Alkalinity or Total Alkalinity (TA) of your hot tub is a measurement of how your water is able to neutralize acids and as such is a key component to the balancing of your pH levels. The alkalinity levels act as a buffer to help your water resist drastic changes. If the alkalinity of your water is unbalanced, it can cause the pH readings to be either too high or too low. The alkalinity of your hot tub should be between 80 to 120ppm.

    pH on the other hand is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline your water is. The ideal range for pH in your hot tub water is between 7.2 and 7.8, as this will allow the chlorine in your water to work more effectively at keeping your water clean. We would recommend that you check the pH level of your water a minimum of twice a week as sanitizers and minerals in the water can have an impact on your reading.
