Step 1. Hello Water!

A clean spa begins with beautiful clear water. In the realm of spa care there are three areas of maintenance any spa owner must familiar with.

Balance Keeping water in balance insures that the spa water will be comfortable in the short term and the equipment lasts over the long term. See Step 2 below.

Hygiene We need to practice good water hygiene to keep water from being overrun from germs, bacteria, and other gross stuff in the water. See Step 3 below.

Cleaning Similar to an automobile, if you keep it clean and perform maintenance on the filter, a spa can run for a very long time. Step 4 below.

Steps 4, 5, and 6 put the previous steps together in an easy to use “program” resulting in clean good looking water with minimum effort.

Step 2. Water Balance

Water balance consists of testing and making possible adjustments to pH, total alkalinity, and calcium hardness. Maintaining proper water balance will insure maximum results from your sanitizers, while maintaining comfortable water. If you are filling your spa for the first time you should have your water tested by your authorized SpaPure dealer to check for these levels initially. As the spa is being used, the water should be tested at least a couple of times weekly, to ensure that these factors are within their appropriate ranges.

Adjust pH to 7.2-7.6 by using ProTeam Spa pH Increaser or ProTeam Spa pH Decreaser.

pH out of range will cause corrosive or scale forming water that is uncomfortable and damaging to the spa.

Use ProTeam Spa Alkalinity Up to elevate alkalinity into the range of 100-120 ppm.

Total Alkalinity out of range will cause pH to go out of its ideal ranger quicker and more frequently.

ProTeam Spa Calcium Up will raise water hardness to the desired range of 150-250 ppm.

Calcium Hardness out of range will cause long term harm to the spas sensitive equipment. Water may even be uncomfortable to bathers.

Step 3. Water Hygiene

There are two types of water care products which always need to be added to maintain healthy and great looking water. Those two products types are sanitizers and oxidizers. Oxidizers are often referred to as Shock.

Sanitizers control and destroy germs and other unwanted bacteria from the water. Sanitizers must be added to the water steadily and frequently. Oxidizers or Shocks remove the buildup of materials we introduce to the water, like personal care products and sweat. Additionally, shocks revitalize sanitizers in water and prevent water from emitting an unpleasant odor. A residential spa should be shocked at least once a week.

ProTeam Spa Brominating Tabs The easiest way to introduce sanitizer to spa water.

ProTeam Spa Di-Chlor Strong, effective, long lasting, and completely soluble sanitizer.

SpaPure Multi Shock Shock water while adding a small but beneficial amount of sanitizer to the spa.

ProTeam Spa Oxidizing Shock Fast dissolving and odor free shock that does not use chlorine or bromine.

Step 4. Water Cleaning

Most of the work to keep a spa clean is done automatically. Spa water needs to be turned over several times a day, so it is important to make sure that the spa periodically turns on and circulates and filters the water.

A spa filter works hard to remove material from your water, most of which is too small to see with the naked eye. Since the filter is constantly collecting material, light to moderately used spas should have their filters cleaned and degreased monthly with ProTeam Spa Filter Clean . Looking to avoid cleaning the filter? Regular additions of ProTeam Spa Natural Clean will effectively extend the time between cleanings!

The natural breakdown of cleaning products and the build-up of oils from your own skin will eventually make the spa water less pleasant than the day it was first filled. For the ultimate spa experience, your home spa should be drained and refilled every three months. Between refills, clean the spa surface with ProTeam Spa Surface Clean . This cleaner, safe for most surfaces, will help keep your spa looking and feeling its best for years

Step 5. Ideal Ranges

These are the ideal ranges a residnetial spa should be kept at for great looking and safe to soak in water.Bromine
3.0-5.0 ppmFree Chlorine
1.0-3.0 ppm

7.2 – 7.6

Total Alkalinity
100-120 ppm

Calcium Hardness
200-400 ppm

0 ppm

Step 6. Initial fill & Initial Use

Five easy steps when freshly filling a new or an existing spa:

1) As the spa is filling add ProTeam Gentle Spa to the spa. This will make water care a breeze and keep water looking spectacular.

2) Shortly afterwards, add ProTeam Spa Metal Magic to the spa. This will prevent water issues such as scaling and staining.

3) Once the spa is filled and well circulated, balance the spa water.

4) Add a sanitizer to the spa. When using bromine, start by adding ProTeam Spa Brom Start to the spa. Shortly afterwards, add ProTeam Spa Brominating Tabs to the spa in an appropriate tablet dispenser. When using chlorine add ProTeam Spa Di-Chlordirectly to the spa to achieve appropriate sanitizer levels.

5) Shock the spa. If you are a new spa owner or your spa has not had water in it for a couple days or longer, use ProTeam Spa Multi Magic Shock.

Step 7. Periodic Maintenance

Check your spa periodically to insure that the spa is circulating at least four hours a day. Without circulation, no matter how many water care products you add to the spa, the water will turn cloudy, smelly, or worse.

Weekly care should include three steps:

Apply ProTeam Spa Sky Blue Clarifier to maintain water clarity

Apply SpaPure Metal Magic to prevent scale buildup on surfaces and equipment

Shock the spa using ProTeam Spa Oxidizing Shock or ProTeam Spa Multi Magic Shock

My Pool was installed two weeks ago and I made the mistake of going to the local pool store and having my water tested. They sold me all kinds of stuff and the pool still wasn't right, After our conversation on the phone and you having me use the test kit that came with the pool and you telling me to add alkalinity up then test again in an hour worked with just adding a little ph up after that. The Pool is water is clear, salt and chlorine levels are right on and I'm returning the unopened stuff from the pool store. Benson Nc
I wanted to thank you the Grand Bahama above ground was exactly the pool we needed. My kids are rowdy and the pool is built so solid it just takes all they give it.
