How-To Guide for Swim Spa Water Maintenance

We all want to keep our SWIM Spa's water healthy, right? But we often ask ourselves, "how do I keep my SWIM spa water clean and clear?" By chance, have you used pool chemicals or treated your SWIM spa like it's a hot tub? Friends, there's a better way. Don't let water care and maintenance be a difficult and overwhelming thing. Waters Choice is here for you and after many years in the pool and spa business, we get it!  Our enzymes are a natural, simple and affordable way to clean your SWIM spa water.

Simple Water Maintenance 

Many people invest in a SWIM spa to relax and exercise. This usually determines how the spa's temperature is set. Most set their temperature at 80 degrees for exercise and 90 to 100 degrees for relaxation.  No matter what the reason for purchasing a SWIM spa, using Waters Choice SWIM Spa Enzymes makes water maintenance a breeze.

Check your owner's manual to see how many gallons of water your SWIM spa holds.  This will help determine how much Waters Choice Enzymes to add.  Our enzymes are formulated to treat 1,000 to 2,000 gallons of water.  If your SWIM spa is larger, you may need to add more enzymes per dosage.

 

What Chemicals Are Needed for a SWIM Spa?

Honestly, with Waters Choice Enzymes and the items you can find in our 3 month SWIM Spa Start-Up Kit we'll help you keep your water clean and safe to use. Our Start-Up and Care kits make things simple.  Each kit includes:

  1.  3 -12 oz bottles of Waters Choice Pure Enzymes for SWIM Spas (monthly application) 
  2. pH Down - Lowers pH and total alkalinity (20 oz)
  3. pH Up - Raises pH and total alkalinity (20 oz)
  4. Granular Chlorine (use 1 tablespoon every other time you use your SWIM spa (16 oz)
  5. Water Test Strips - to test and balance your water (pH and total alkalinity)

No Additional Chemicals Needed!

Yes, it's that simple! Waters Choice Enzymes for SWIM spas, testing strips and a little sanitizer with pH Up or Down.  Absolutely no need for shock, metalgon, algaecide, filter cleaner, foam down, etc.

Waters Choice 4 Ounce SWIM Spa Concentrate

Even though the 12 oz monthly enzyme application is simple, we also have a concentrated form of our Pure Enzymes for SWIM spas. We like giving our customers options.  Our monthly bottle is convenient, but there are others who enjoy using our concentrated form of enzymes.  Click over to waterschoice.com and check it out.

Clean & Drain - Purging Your SWIM Spa's Plumbing

One more thing. Have you heard of purging your spa's plumbing lines?  Do you use more sanitizer than you think you should need too? Is your water difficult to balance?  These are signs of biofilm caught in plumbing lines and that it may be time to purge your SWIM spa's plumbing lines.  By purging with Waters Choice Clean & Drain, it ensures that you'll be starting over with fresh, clean water. It's almost like having a brand-new tub.

Keep in mind that traditional chemical systems require you to drain your spa many times per year whereas with Waters Choice enzymes, you'll only need to drain your SWIM spa every 3 to 5 years! For more information regarding our Clean & Drain product and how to use it successfuly please give us a call, we're always happy to help. Along with that, click HERE for hepful videos.
