How To Use Your Chemical Kit

[an error occurred while processing this directive] [an error occurred while processing this directive]

This is a simple step by step directions for the use of your Leisure Time Chemicals. The first step starts with fresh water. Please read the entire bottle before use of any spa chemicals. This is just an outline to go by.

Step 1: Test Strips - test for Bromine, Chlorine, Alkalinity, Calcium Hardness, and pH levels in your spa water. The color levels should register in the ideal range that is indicated for each. To use dip test strip in water make two circles and remove (DO NOT SHAKE EXCESS WATER OFF). Match colors with the appropriate chart on the back of the bottle. Adjust the levels accordingly. Adjust the Alkalinity first then adjust the pH by using Spa Up or Spa Down. Then adjust the Calcium level. To maintain spa chemistry test the water at least once (1) a week and adjust chemicals as needed.

Step 2: Metal Gon is a unique formulation of chelating or binding agents that will react with any metal contaminants. Pour entire bottle around the perimeter of the spa. Turn tub on in filter mode. Let the water circulate for 30 minutes.

Step 3: pH Balance is a liquid formulation of buffers that eliminates the need to adjust the calcium levels in addition to the pH. Pour entire bottle of pH Balance per 500 gallons of water. Let water circulate for 5 minutes.

Step 4: Sodium Bromide acts as a reserve for your bromine and is activated with shock. Add one (1) packet to water.

You will need to do the above steps every time you drain and clean the hot tub. (3 times per year)

Sanitizers

Bromine Tablets is the equivalent to chlorine as your sanitizer. This is what kills the bacteria in your spa. They are slow dissolving and you should always have tablets in the spa. Using your test strips test the bromine level at least once a week. Add 1 tablet at a time until you are at the ideal range.

Spa 56 - as a sanitizer this kills the bacteria in your spa like bromine. You must keep a chlorine residual of 2 3 ppm at all times. Test spa water with you test strips. If the chlorine level is too low, add ounce per 500 gallons retest until the proper level has been reached wait 5 minutes before entering the spa. This should be added daily to maintain the proper levels. You will also need to check your pH levels more closely.

Reserve - is a liquid Bromine salt that remains in the spa until shock is added. It is only when the shock is added that it becomes a disinfectant. Reserve & Shock is a chlorine free sanitizing system. Add 4 ounces per 250 gallons into a circulating spa. Add 1 ounce of shock to activate the salts. Test bromine level repeat until ideal range is acquired. Test the bromine level 1(once) a day. To maintain proper levels add Reserve 1(once) a week and shock.

OZ is your shock. It oxidizes the water to dissolve solid waste that is left behind from the bathers. After bathing turn of blowers and jets. Turn on filtration mode and add three (3) tablets per 250 gallons of water. Run system for 15 minutes then turn system of and replace cover. This should be done at a minimum of once a week. Sometimes it is recommended to use 1 tablet after each daily use. ( It is important to shock the spa after you have tested and adjusted the chemistry. Shock will give improper readings if you shock the spa then test it. Also DO NOT use the spa for 8 hours.)

Ez Hot Tubs

Balancers

pH Balance Plus is a granular formation the locks in the pH, Alkalinity and Calcium in hard water (recommended for the Maryland Area), from refill to refill. So adjusting weekly will be easier. Add a bottle for up to 250 gallons and the entire bottle for up to 500 gallons. Turn jets on and allow to circulate for 15 minutes. (Water may be cloudy until the granules are completely dissolved). Only use after you have drained and cleaned your spa.

Spa Up brings the pH and Alkalinity level of your spa water back up to and ideal range. Test the water with your test strips. . If the Alkalinity level is low add capful to spa let the water circulate for 15 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary. If the pH level is low, add 1 capful to spa let the water circulate for 2 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary.

Liquid Spa Up - brings the pH and Alkalinity level of your spa water back down to and ideal range. Test the water with your test strips. If the Alkalinity level is low add 1ounce to spa let the water circulate for 30 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary. If the pH level is low, add 1 ounce to spa let the water circulate for 10 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary.

Spa Down - brings the pH and Alkalinity level of your spa water back down to and ideal range. Test the water with your test strips. If the Alkalinity level is high add capful to spa let the water circulate for 15 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary. If the pH level is high, add 1 capful to spa let the water circulate for 2 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary.

Liquid Spa Down - brings the pH and Alkalinity level of your spa water back down to and ideal range. Test the water with your test strips. If the Alkalinity level is high add 1ounce to spa let the water circulate for 30 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary. If the pH level is high, add 1 ounce to spa let the water circulate for 10 minutes then test again. Repeat if necessary.

Calcium Booster is used to bring low levels of calcium up to a normal range. Wrong calcium levels will damage the spa shell and components, and may cause foaming. To remove calcium from the spa you must do a partial drain and add water that has a lower calcium level. Test the water with your test kit or strips. If the calcium level is low turn on jets and add 1 ounce to raise the level 7ppm (example: if your reading says 72 you will have to add 4 ounces per 500 gallons). Let spa circulate for 1 2 hours and retest. Repeat if necessary. ( Only use if you are 100% sure that the hardness level is actually low.)

Alkalinity Increaser determines how your pH level will change and react when you add your other chemicals. Test water with you test strips. If Alkalinity level is low add2 tablespoons (1 ounce) to spa water. Turn spa on and let circulate for 30 minutes. Test and repeat if necessary.

Maintenance

Instant Filter Clean cleans and sanitizes your filter cartridge. You should clean your filter at least once (1) a month and replace it once (1) a year. To clean hold filter on the ground at a 45 degree angle and hose out any heavy debris. Then you will saturate the entire filter with the concentrated cleaner. Wait 15 minutes and hose off the cleaner until the water runs clear.

Defender organic polymers that aid in the removal and prevention of scale formation and helps prevent the precipitation of dissolved solids. Can be used when water is cloudy or weekly. Add 2 ounces to spa and circulate for 1 hour. Note water may be cloudy as it begins to work.

Enzyme is a formulation of natural enzymes that will break down oil, lotion, and organics that are left behind from bathers. The particles can build up and cause scum line and odors in the spa. Use weekly. Add 1 ounce per 250 gallons.

Bright & Clear is a special formulation that combine the small particles that cause cloudy water to bond together to form larger particles that can be filtered out. Add 2 ounces per 800 gallons. Turn high speed jets on for 3 minutes to circulate. Turn off high speed and turn on filter (low speed) mode and let circulate until water is clear.

Foam Down is used to stop excessive foam. To use shake well and squirt directly on foam to dissolve (about ounce at a time). Use only when needed.
