    Sanitizing Spa Chemicals

    1. 2 years ago
      Worry f r ee
      My spa has this system built in and uses the tube cartridges. When I first got the spa we went the chlorine route because our Pool was chlorine and I was new to owning both. I figured simpler was better and both using the same chemicals meant less chemicals laying around to irritate nature and my animals. The chlorine was too harsh for my son's sensitive skin so I switched over to bromine in the spa. That in itself made a huge difference and was a pleasant one at that. With chlorine my water ... read more would get cloudy and smelly and I had to use heavy doses of chlorine to keep it straight. We do use our spa daily. Bromine sanitized ,its never gotten that way and the water always smells "fresh". I couldn't find just the mineral cartridge on the site so I got this one that is supposed to go inside your filter. It fit in my inline feeder for spa frog so that's where it is and I'm using less bromine now than before. I really like the spa frog bromine mineral system. It's great!

      really makes a difference in your water
      I didn't realize it - but this really does help maintain the water. We noticed that we did not have to empty/clean/fillup our hot tub as often when we used this.

      Nature 2 Spa Purifier
      This is the best product for the spa that I have ever used. It is a proven fact that chlorine is not good on the skin or for inhalation. You must use a clean up product along with the Nature 2 and IN THE SWIM carries it. It is a pool product called Chlorine-free Pool Shock. Using these two porducts, Nature 2 and 1 1/2 tablespoons of the Pool Shock every time you use the spa or daily and you will have crystal clear water at all times. My water has not been changed since October 2004 and it ... read more sparkling clean. Of course I use Spa Defender and Spa Perfect every Saturday and Ph up and Alkaline up when needed. And once a week I use Leisure Time Enzyme You have to use the test strips to keep it all in balance. I would highly recommend IN THE SWIM to anyone as they are great to deal with and my supplies are delivered right to my door in a very timely manner. And at times I even get free shipping. Great People.

      Awesome!
      I have used this for years now. A dose of lithium shock once a week and that's all I do to my spa! No residue, chemical smell or dry skin. My husband suffers from eczema and refused to get in the spa anymore with chlorine or bromine, this has absolutely no effect on his skin! Highly recommended!

      True to description!
      I have purchased the Spa Oxidizer before so I trust that it does what it says and works very well in our hot tub. I am very satisfied with the product, the price and the delivery time!

      works great
      Much easier than chlorine when used in conjunction with a floater with tabs.

      Much more economical than going to the pool store
      I recently switched from Chlorine to Bromine in my Spa and all of the stores I checked in were higher priced. I just go on my computer, order what I need and it arrives at my door usually within 3 days. I love not having to go out to get my pool supplies, it gives me more time to swim and soak!

    More About Sanitizing Spa & Hot Tub Chemicals

    Just as with swimming pools, sanitizing your spa or hot tub is your primary responsibility as a spa owner. Sanitizing spa chemicals include bromine tabs or chlorinating granules, spa shock, mineral purifiers and more. The science behind spa sanitizers is by no means an exact science either. Depending on the size of your spa and how often you use it, treating the water with spa hot tub chemicals will vary. Nevertheless, there are a few basic components of hot tub sanitizers that all spas will require.

    First and foremost, you have chlorine or bromine. While chlorine is the typical go-to sanitizer for swimming pools, bromine is the main spa sanitizer. Because bromine remains stable at higher temperatures it is recommended for spa and hot tubs. In addition, bromine is less harsh than other spa chemicals so it is suitable for swimmers with sensitive skin. In order to keep your spa free of organic contaminants like bacteria or algae, sanitizing spa chemicals like bromine or chlorine are absolutely necessary.

    In addition to bromine, one of the major hot tub sanitizers is a spa ozonator, a mineral purifier and sanitizer and even a simple-to-use floating mineral purifier. These spa chemicals are designed to reduce or prevent stains and scale build up and to control metals that enter the water. Metal contaminants can stain the walls of your spa and can even discolor the hair of fair-haired swimmers.

    This is just a basic review of some of the chemicals for spas that you’ll find at In the Swim. For hot tub owners who prefer natural spa and hot tub sanitizers, In the Swim carries a range of great products from Leisure Time spa chemicals. Furthermore, when it comes to water balancing chemicals, it is also important to regularly test the water quality. To that end, In the Swim also offers AquaChek test strips and Leisure Time test strips for spa chlorine and spa bromine.

    Always make sure to maintain clean, comfortable spa water for your family, friends, and guests with the best spa sanitizing chemicals. At In the Swim we have all the spa cleaning chemicals you will need to keep your water clean and crystal clear with little or no hassle so you can spend more time enjoying your hot tub and less time maintaining it.
