Hot Tub water care tip for the summer

Hot Tub water care tip for the summer
7.6 Total Score


With summer coming on the bather load in your hot tub will change to lotion slathered greased up bodies. The addition of sun screens and other oils into your hot tub means filters clogging up, oils film on the surface and ring around the hot tub.

This simple trick can help make your summer water care much easier.

Get a spa ball or scum ball from your local retailer, they are made of special fabric that absorbs oil but not water. They float around the surface and collect excess oils drastically reducing the effect on your water quality of all these contaminates.

Hi Chris. I purchased a masterspa 8.25 from suntek and waiting for it to be delivered. Can you please email the watercare tip sheet to get it started and for ongoing treatment. Thanks.

Hi Doug

Thank you for this useful information in this article about Hot Tub water care.

Thank you for your informative site. Really helped us make our decision. Primarily purchasing for hydrotherapy for joint condition and auto accident injuries. We chose a Master Spa Twilight 7.2 stock model from the factory which we are fortunate enough to live close to. Standard package with Ecopur, Mast3rPur, QuietFlo, cover, steps, coverlift and ext warranty (everything but stereo, wifi and upgraded lighting). $7250+ uncle Sam’s share. All that said, this is our first tub and understanding the system and navigating thru all the chemicals available is a bit mind boggling. What would you recommend for this tub? Very sensitive… Read more »

Chris, We’re really enjoying our Twilight 8.25, had it about 2 months now. Not having any issues, but want to ask about filters. Background… Using Aquafinesse/dichlor powder (getting ready to try trichlor tabs). Water pH/alk/Cal levels been good. Have started using a drop or two of the foam out stuff I were given by my dealer. Haven’t used a filter cleaning puck yet, but have been rinsing out the filters weekly as recommended by my dealer. Was thinking about putting in a new set of filters, while I deep clean the originals. 1. Can I deep clean, rinse and let… Read more »

Hi Chris,
Mark here again. I’ve decided to go with the Master Twilight 8.2 and use AquaFinesse (due to your excellent reviews and my research) to maintain the water quality. My question is : what else do I need to start the tub off right chemical wise? PH strips etc… There are so many things out there (Starter Kits) that its a confusing mess. Any recommendations on products that you’ve had experience with? Again, thanks for your great info on the website. I owe you a beer if you ever come down to WA state, Tacoma area!

Hi Chris, any chance you could email me the same tip sheet? Love your reviews/videos and website and I will most probably buying my 1st hot tub in a week or so. Artesian Island Spas Antigua 52 jet version from my local dealer all the way from Newcastle, England UK. I don’t know much about the chemical side and maintenance, and I know you advise not buying something like the Diamond AOP system they use, and prefer the aftermarket stuff like Aquafinesse etc. If you could send me tips on what’s best/prices to compare that would be awesome!! I want… Read more »

We also started using Aqua-finesse due to your raving reviews and being a cancer survivor I want my family to be as safe as possible. We just got our Spa on Friday and we are having problem with cloudy water & foam. We have had a heavy bather load since its new and exciting!! I’m not sure what products I can use in conjunction with the Aqua-finesse line to help with that and still be as healthy as possible. Would this tip sheet work for me too?

Thanks in advance.

I recently received a lung transplant and the doctors are saying no more spa usage because of the bacteria.

I remember on another blog you mentioned a chemical that prevents a film from building up in the spa that protects the bacteria. I would like to do additional research on that chemical in hopes of changing their minds.

What was the name of that chemical? I believe that is was around $40 a month.

I recently received a lung transplant and they are telling me no more spa use because of the bacteria. I remember you mentioning a chemical that prevents a film that builds up in the spas that protects the bacteria.

I want to do more research on that chemical to see if I can try to change their mind, but I can’t remember what it was called. I think you said it was about $40/month.

I will, I just want to make sure they have all the information. I am guessing the decision to tell patients no more spas was made 30+ years ago. Water care has changed since then.

If they still say no, I will accept that. A second chance at life does not come along for many people.
