How To Keep Your Hot Tub Water Safe For Public Use

Home Repair
In order to have a healthy hot tub for your guests to use, you must maintain it properly. One way to properly maintain the hot tub is by testing the water's pH balance.

Hot tubs are a great way to relax and entertain friends and family. What most people don’t know is the amount of time that they will need to invest into their hot tub to keep it clean. If the proper maintenance is not taken to maintain the hot tub then bacteria and algae will start to form thus shortening the lifespan of the hot tub. It is important to keep the hot tub clean not only for the safety of yourself but for the safety of your guest as well.

One very common mistake of the average hot tub owner is the failure to maintain the proper pH levels in their hot tubs. The easiest and cheapest way to test the pH balance of the hot tub is to use pH test strips. They are inexpensive and can be purchased where ever a pool and spa supply store is located. It is ideal to test your hot tub water about every two days, although most people will only test the hot tub pH levels about once a week which is fine as long as the hot tub is not heavily used and the hot tub is not located in adverse weather conditions.

When water becomes too acidic measuring at 7.0 or lower the acidic water will cause accelerated decay to the mechanical equipment of the hot tub. When water is too alkaline (measuring at 7.8 pH or higher), it will speed up lime and scale build up. An ideal hot tub pH level is from 7.2 to 7.6. If the hot tub pH levels are not properly maintained then you and your guest could experience skin irritation, foul smelling and cloudy water, as well as corrosion of mechanical equipment and mineral buildup.

When the pH levels in the hot tub are imbalanced you will need to add either sodium bicarbonate or sodium bisulphate. Sodium bicarbonate will increase the pH levels in the hot tubs while sodium bisulphate will lower the pH level. If you purchase strips that are designed for spas and pools, they will also measure the sanitizer levels in your hot tub water.

There are three kinds of sanitizers: Chlorine, Bromine, and Biguanide. Chlorine is the most popular and well known of all pool water sanitizers. Chlorine is available in liquid, tablet, and granule form. Although extremely popular as a sanitizer, there is one drawback to using Chlorine: it will produce a strong odor that can be unappealing to some people. Bromine is a sanitizer that is available in tablet, nugget, and granules. Bromine does not produce a strong odor when used and it doesn't dissipate at 98 degrees making it much more appealing as a sanitizer to hot tub owners. Biguanide is another sanitizer that is very popular that works in a completely different chemical manner than either Chlorine or Bromine.

Hot tubs are an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and germs. To eliminate the problem of bacteria and germs in your hot tub water, you must maintain ideal water pH levels. You should also empty your hot tub water about every 90 days. By doing these two simple things, you will drastically lower the potential for unhealthy water conditions. Caring for your hot tub is not difficult! Follow the advice in this article and you'll be well on your way to a healthy hot tub environment.
