  1. I've been using bromine do I need to drain before switching over to chlorine?
  2. Thanks Do you prefer granules or tablets? Or might I be better off with chlorine
  3. Hotsprings instructs users to put all chemicals only into the filter compartment. We are using bromine granules, and coincidentally?? the only time my water remained clear is after I put the bromine in the main tub area rather than filer area. Is this a coincidence? Background I have a new hotsprings Pulse spa and the water was cloudy after several days. I discovered the installer put the ozonator check valve in backwards. After many attempts with dealer to fix the chemistry, we finally drained and refilled tub, Then followed all instructions and water became cloudy after a few days, I proceeded to put in bromine 2.5 tablespoons for 380 gal tub. After 16 hours no free bromine detected. Ph 7.2 and alkalinity 122 water still cloudy Next I put in 4 tablespoons (super shock) but this time directly into tub not thru filter area (I also changed filter) Note "older" filter is only 1 month old and has been rinsed every week. Left cover off for 6 hours. Now finally water is clear. What was the problem?? Filter, putting bromine into filter area, check valve? other?? Lastly Should I switch to tablets or chlorine

  6. Thinking about purchasing the limelight flair or the Sundance Hamilton 780. Should I add the ozonater to the flair ? Any thoughts of one versus the other and what is a good price for each ? Thx
  7. I'm pouring a 5" inch slab 11'x9' for my hot tub i want pitch on the slab so rain water drains, I expect I will shim my hot tub. What pitch should I have for the slab - (over 11 feet)
  8. Should the concrete be reinforced with rebar or wire mesh - any advantage to fiber reinforced concrete. Lastly any min PSI recomendation
  9. Any other feedback on Artesian vs other brands also looking at Artesian island line Bahamaspas. lastly and good 6-8 person spas in the <$7,000 range
  10. I'm getting ready to get a concrete pad poured for a new hot tub any suggestions on what the size and specification should be. What's a reasonable cost to pay in the Northeast. Also should we run conduit inside the concrete
  11. Thank you - I believe it is a roto spa (vs acrylic) is that correct. Any issues with the lightweight spa vibrating? Do you have it on a concrete pad? In what area of the country do you live?
  12. Yes but costco will take it back for a refund at any time. - Has anyone had experience with costco Evolution, or Aquaterra made by watkins manufacturers of hot springs and Caldera? I have a local hot tub mover that will install costco hot tub from curbside delivery for $675 First time buyer How can I get real unbiased reviews on hot tubs.
