    Sanitizing Spa Chemicals

    1. 3 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!

      Terrific!
      We used the Frog previously in our above ground pool and were able to use minimal chlorine and still have a beautiful pool. Everyone always commented about how nice it was to swim in our pool and not have the chlorine worry. Now we use the Frog in our spa and we use less bromine and everyone feels great!

      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!

      Just OK
      Good way to add bromine to the hot tub. Do not like the way that it gravitates straight for the filter basket and stays there. I think by this act alone too much water is swirling through it, dissolving the bromine faster than necessary. Price was right.

      Bromine feeder
      used in a hot tub seems to work, lightly built don't expect long life from it.

      Great little feeder
      I bought this because I needed a chlorine feeder for my pool and the price was right. It works well but you need the 1" tabs but 3" will work if you break them up--which wasn't a problem for me.

      Easy shopping
      I am disabled and am limited to the house and need to shop on line. I use my swim spa for exercise and hydro therapy.

      Easy to use and read.
      These strips are easy to use and very accurate. The only challange we had with them is making sure your hand is dry when reaching into the container to get one of the strips out. If any water gets into the bottle the other strips will be activated and unusable. I would recommend this product.

      Quick & Easy
      I highly recommend Leisure Time's Chlorine Test Strips and other Leisure Time products. The Test Strips are easy to use and provide a quick reading of your spa water quality.

    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.
