Chas, Tell Us More About Your Water Care Method

29 September 2007 - 04:23 PM

Chas, in a previous post you said that you only need to add chlorine once per month in conjunction with ozone and N2. I thought you needed to add a sanitizer (dichlor) after or before each soak to kill the bacteria. You mentioned adding MPS after each soak but MPS is only an oxidizer.

Please tell us more about your Water Care Method. I know you have been in the business for quite some time so I would like to hear more about your method and experiences related to this topic.

How can they tell? Whats the point of just adding chlorine just once a month?

They can tell because the water quality goes south. No longer crystal clear, foul smelling, slime. the only solution is to chlorine shock, or change water. And the filter can clog quickly too. You get the idea, I hope.

And the point of "just adding chlorine just once a month" is what a good ozone system is all about. Put a Nature2 cartridge in a spa which circulates water full time, and add MPS once a week - or after each use, you choose - and you don't need chlorine but once a month as a shock. Not cheaper, but folks do seem to like it.
