Why should you treat the water in your spa?
The spa water comes under permanent attack and therefore suffers damages due to impurities
- Brought about by swimmers: saliva, sweat, hair, lotions, bacteria, etc.
- Brought about by the environment: grass, earth, soot, acid rain, etc.
The treatment seeks to
- Prevent the spread of algae and bacteria
- Prevent lime deposits
- Make the water comfortable for a relaxation
Irrespective of the type of spa you have, the water must be
- Pristine & Safe, Disinfected & Disinfecting and lastly Comfortable so that you can take full advantage of your Spa
- A poorly treated spa can cause irritations: to the eyes, the skin, the ENT area and even the feet
Issues and solutions
|The pH is not correct||Readjust the pH to between 7.0 and 7.4. Perform shock treatment.|
|The chlorine rate is insufficient||Perform shock treatment, flocculation, carry out repeated washing operations, leave the filtration system running for 24 hours.|
|Insufficient filtration||Increase the filtration period.|
|Overstabilisation||Check your stabilising agent rate. 2 possibilities: If > 150 ppm drain away half of the tank. If > 100 ppm drain a third. Use unstabilised chlorine.|
|Formation of algae||Check the pH – Perform shock chlorination, wash and rinse the filter, brush the walls, place one or more flocculant cartridges in the skimmer and use a concentrated anti-algae treatment. Continuous filtration for at least 24 hours.|
|Overstabilisation||Check that your stabilising agent rate > 150 ppm. Drain half of the tank; 100 ppm drain a third. Use unstabilised chlorine.|
|The pH is not correct||Readjust the pH to between 7.0 and 7.4.|
|Overstabilisation||Add the lime scale treatment.|
|Presence of iron or magnesium||Use a metal sequestering agent. Add new water and check the balance.|
|Presence of copper||Use a metal sequestering agent. Add new water and check the balance.|
|The filter is blocked||Clean the filter, if the pressure persists, unblock the filter with a filter descaling cleaning agent.|
