Our Spa Chlorine is a chlorine sanitizer for spas and hot tubs that dissolves quickly and completely to provide a steady source of available chlorine in your spa. Sanitizing with spa chlorine or another sanitizer is the most important step in maintaining a clean, healthy spa. Bacteria and algae tend to grow more rapidly in hot water, so it's important to keep your sanitizer at the recommended levels at all times. Can also be used as a spa shock treatment; see directions below.
Our Spa Chlorine will control the growth of algae, kill bacteria and destroy organic contaminants. Simple to use, this spa chlorine will keep your spa crystal clean.
Spa Chlor Directions for Use
Spa Chlor is a spa chlorine that is designed to dissolve quickly and completely, providing a steady source of available chlorine to control the growth of algae, kill bacteria, and destroy organic contaminants.
Method of Application: Broadcast spa chlorine evenly over a wide area in the deepest part of the spa with water circulating.
Spa and Hot Tub Use: Each level teaspoon (0.17 ounces) of spa chlorine will provide approximately 1.4 ppm (parts per million) available chlorine in 500 gallons of water. Using an appropriate spa water test kit, test and adjust the water to the following values: pH 7.2-7.8, total alklainity 60-100 ppm, calcium hardness 200 ppm minimum. Maintain these conditions for proper spa and hot tub operation by frequent testing with a test kit. Do not allow cyanuric acid level to exceed 150 ppm. It is recommended that spas be drained every 30-90 days (more often with heavy use). Consult the manufacturer's recommendations concerning the compatibility of chlorine sanitizers with their equipment. Some oils, lotions, fragrances and cleaners may cause foaming or cloudy water and may react with spa chlorine sanitizers to reduce their efficacy.
Start-Up (Freshly Filled)
Turn on the circulation system and ensure that it is operating properly.
Add six teaspoons of spa chlorine for each 500 gallons of spa water.
Check the free available chlorine (FAC) and if below 4-5 ppm, repeat as needed. Re-entry into treated spas is prohibited above levels of 3 ppm of chlorine.
Turn on the circulation system and ensure that it is operating properly. Scatter approximately three teaspoons of spa chlorine per 500 gallons of spa water over the surface of the water. Always use a clean, dry spoon. Test for FAC and add additional product, if necessary, to attain 4-5 ppm FAC. Maintain 1-3 ppm FAC while the spa is in use.
After each use, shock treat with 9 teaspoons per 500 gallons of water to control odors and algae. Repeat as needed. Re-entry into treated spas is prohibited above levels of 3 ppm of chlorine.
