One of the most important responsibilities in hot tub ownership is to test the water. This ensures the chemical balance is at its optimal point. For both your safety and to prevent damage to your hot tub.
INCREASE THE LIFESPAN OF THE HOT TUB
Your hot tub is an investment, so you should treat it as one. Hot tub water chemistry maintenance is worth the bit of time it takes to keep your hot tub in good shape for longer.
Unbalanced water can become corrosive. Rusting metal components like pumps and heaters. As well as causing plastics and rubbers to degrade.
Unbalanced water can also develop a layer of scale (mineral buildup). Which will force your hot tub heater and salt system to work harder. Shortening the lifespan of your hot tub or spa.
ENSURE THERE IS ENOUGH SANITIZER
Sanitizer prevents bacteria growth in your hot tub water. But if there isn’t enough sanitizer in the water. Then you risk having harmful bacteria growing and making your hot tub unsafe to use.
ENSURE WATER IS COMFORTABLE AND SAFE
Hot tubs are for relaxation. With balanced hot tub water chemistry, the water is comfortable and harmless to be in. But, unbalanced water chemistry can irritate your eyes and skin. While drying out your skin and hair, making for an unpleasant hot tub experience.
SAVE YOU MONEY
By preventing damage to your hot tub and its equipment. You will save money in the long run that you would otherwise spend on hot tub repairs or replacement. You will also save money by keeping your hot tub clean. Instead of needing to fix problems like green or cloudy water.
Balanced water chemistry (pH) requires less sanitizer. You won’t need to spend as much money on sanitizer if you keep your water balanced.
