Hot Tub Care Guide

Just as with pools, hot tub water needs to be balanced. It may even be more important that your hot tub is balanced because of the smaller quantity of water. Either way, it’s still important to keep you, your family, and your friends safe.

Kay Pool and Spa has added this hot tub care guide to help answer some of your questions about balancing hot tub water.

Testing and Balancing Your Hot Tub

We recommend testing and balancing your hot tub twice each week.

Total Bromine or Chlorine

Bromine Ideal Range: 2ppm – 4ppm

Chlorine Ideal Range: 3ppm – 5ppm

Total Alkalinity

Alk Ideal Range: 80ppm – 120ppm

Ph Levels

Ph Ideal Range: 7.2-7.4

Calcium Hardness

Calcium Ideal Range: 100ppm – 200ppm

Thank you so much for recommending Water’s Choice enzymes to treat our hot tub. My water is the clearest it has ever been and remains crystal clear, even 2 weeks past drain and fill. The only chemicals I’ve used were chlorine, PH increase, and hardness increase right after refill. I have not needed to add ANY additional chemicals in two weeks so far! No more trying to be a chemist to figure out how to stabilize our hot tub! Amazing product, and I’m recommending to everyone I know!

Hot Tub Guidelines

We recommend draining your hot tub every 3-4 months. This will help maintain a cleaner hot tub environment for you and your family. For our Waters Choice customers, this can be done once a year.

Always use hot tub chemicals and not pool chemicals in your hot tub. Pool chemicals are formulated for larger bodies of water.

We recommend cleaning your filters weekly to ensure proper operation and cleanliness.
