Our test strips are very quick and easy to use and take the ‘chore’ out of testing your Hot Tub water. Simply take a test strip from the pot, dip it into your Hot Tub water, swirl it round a few times, hold level (being careful not to shake off the excess water), wait for the prescribed length of time and then compare the colour of the pads with the colours printed on the test strip pot.
Q1 What is sanitising the water?
It’s when you add a sanitiser like chlorine or bromine to the water. A sanitiser is a bacterial killer.
Q2 What is balancing the water?
Water balance tells you something about the make up of the water. The most significant factors for balancing spa water are: - pH (adicity of the water) - Total alkalinity - Calcium hardness
Q3 What is a 'pH level'?
The pH level is the scale that tells you how acidic or basic the water is.
Q4 What should the pH level be?
In your hot tub it should be between 7,2-7,8
Q5 What kind of Sanitizer should I use?
If you are happy with your current sanitizer then we advise to keep using it.
Q6 Why should I use chlorine?
Chlorine will work fast and not give bacteria much time to settle en multiply.
Q7 What is a stabiliser in chlorine?
Most types of chlorine have cyanuric acid as a stabiliser, this is to there to make chlorine dissipate (used up) slower when it is exposed to UV (sunlight).Because this cyanuric acid is NOT used up it builds up the level every time you add it which slows down the chlorine.When it chlorine slows down it can give bacteria a change to settle and multiply.
Q8 What is the difference between Chlorine and Bromine?
Chlorine will work faster than Bromine and is more commonly used because of this. Bromine will work on a wider pH range which is why some prefer it.
