Spa Maintenance Hints and Tips

Making It Safe to Go Into the Water

 Spas are lots of fun for the entire family, friends and guests.  To keep equipment safe and the water sanitary, spas require occasional maintenance.  Unlike pools, hot spa water needs certain chemical additives to prevent virus, bacteria and algae growth.

 The selection and routine application of chemicals designed for spas assures water purity.  It is crucial that total alkalinity, pH and sanitiser (chlorine) levels remain constant and within safe parameters before entering a spa.  We stock weekly test kits and offer advice about analysing results to guarantee water balance.

 FAQ’s - Frequently Asked Questions about Spa Water
