  1. Ahh yeah my circulation pump only runs intermittently, so I guess that means the ozonator is only running intermittently. I monitor ORP with a pHin, I keep seeing that chlorine can be less effective with high levels of CYA, that bad bugs can grow in lower levels of chlorine, etc. but if my pHin is showing that the ORP is in acceptable range, that should mean that it’s continuing to be clean, whatever the mechanism (be it ozone, chlorine, mineral sanitizers, etc) right? So if I’m gone for 3 weeks and the ORP stays in good range, should be safe to jump in when I get back, albeit with some e
  2. Oh, and I’m pretty sure the ozonator runs 24/7, but I don’t know for sure. It’s a ThermoSpas Park Avenue.
  3. Thanks, I was assuming if there was no visual indicators that anything was off and the water was perfectly balanced that it was safe to jump in, but wasn’t sure if there was something I was missing. Didn’t want to end up with a bad case of Legionnaire’s a week later!
  4. Thanks for the input. In the past I’ve superchlorinated and got the pH into good range, then went back home and monitored it with my pHin. It showed that pH drifted up each time the jets turned on, so it got to a bad range after about a week. The ORP went down to what the pHin calls “yellow” range after a week also and leveled out there. At this point I’m assuming there was no chlorine left at all and the system was relying exclusively on the ozonator that runs 24/7. I left it like this for 6 weeks, and when I returned I expected to find the water green, cloudy and smelly, but it was crystal c
  5. Help! I bought a cabin in the mountains with a hot tub and it’s 2.5 hrs from home (and 2.5 hrs from anywhere). It was always my dream to have a hot tub, and this has one! The problem is, I’m usually only able to make it up to the cabin around once a month reliably (sometimes much more, but need a water maintenance plan that will allow for these absences). I was doing well with the water maintenance while I was spending a ton of time here (chlorine granules, non-chlorine shock, etc) but since winter has hit I’ve hired a service to come once a week so I didn’t have to worry. The problem is,
