Balancing your spa water is essential.
Waters Choice enzymes enable your pH to stay more stabilized and dramatically minimizes chlorine use. However, it is still vitally important to start out with your pH balanced. We’ll show you just how easy it is to use water balancing chemicals like pH Up and pH Down, as well as Sanitizer.
The first water balancing test to check for is pH. It is important to maintain pH in the recommended range of 7.2 to 7.6. If the pH of the water is high, the water accelerates scale formation on the sides of the spa or swim spa and the heater elements. In addition, the water tends to be cloudy, eye irritation may develop, and scale build-up may begin to occur. Test your water for pH using an Insta -Test strip. If the pH reading is higher than the recommended range, add 1 oz. (one capful) of pH Down per 250 gallons directly to spa water. Let the water circulate for 1 hour and test again. Repeat if necessary. You may use your spa immediately following treatment. Waters Choice pH Down is a granular pH decreaser that comes in a 3 lb. size.
Our pH Up is a fast dissolving granular product that will increase the pH and alkalinity in your spa or swim spa. It is important to maintain your pH between 7.2 and 7.6. When pH falls outside these ranges, the water will be acidic and can cause skin and eye irritations, corrosion of equipment, and scaling in the water. Test water for pH using Insta -Test strip. If pH is low, add 1 oz (one capful) of pH Up per 250 gallons of water. It may be broadcast on the spa surface. It requires one hour to determine if pH is within recommended range. Repeat if necessary. You may use your spa immediately following treatment. Waters Choice pH Up is a granular pH increaser that comes in a 2 lb. size.
Our Sanitizer helps to maintain the clarity in your spa or swim spa as well as to eliminate bacteria, odor, and algae. With the spa pump on, add 2 teaspoons (1 scoop) of this product every other spa usage. Never exceed 5 ppm. If you are using our enzymes, you can use the minimum amount of chlorine necessary. Also, you do not need to “shock” your spa water when using Waters Choice enzymes. Our customers tell us that our Sanitizer works better than other brands. They are able to use less chlorine to get the job done. Waters Choice Sanitizer is a stabilized, concentrated, dry granular chlorinating product that comes in 2 lb. size.
This test strip is a “dip-and-read” strip with instant results. The Insta-Test 3 strip is perfect for basic water testing of the most important test factors. Simply dip for 2 seconds and read. Pop-top caps are easy to open and close. There are 50 strips per bottle. Please take note of the expiration date on the bottle.
