  1. I have been reading on this forum a lot about hot tubs that have ozone consume more free chlorine. From what I have read, it looks like ozone reacts with hypochlorite to produce mostly oxygen and chloride but in a side reaction it also produces chlorate, an oxidized form of hypochlorite. My question is about the fate of chlorate. Does it just build up in the tub or does it go on to oxidize organic matter?
  2. Greetings: I have a small, 210 gallon hot tub with ozone on the way, so I need to figure out sanitization. It would seem that “Nitro’s Approach to Water Maintenance” remains the Gold Standard here, even though it was written 11 years ago. If you spend any time at all searching for best spa sanitizer systems, you’ll come across a plethora of more recent advancements such as salt water systems, mineral systems, enzyme systems, etc. that all claim to be less work and provide much better water while using less chemicals than Nitros’s method. Does this still remain the Gold Standard? For
  3. Hi, First off let me give you the specs and current water parameters. Clearwater 475 gal. With ozone & uv. 98° Typical user load is 4-5 days per week, 2 people, 1 hr. This is the first water fill and it has been running for approximately 3 months. Using Taylor K-2006 test kit Currently using a mineral stick in filter 1. I've been using 6% liquid bleach since my cya hit approx 35ppm. Ph6.8 CH 180 TA 60 FC 6 TC 1 I have had my TA @ 120+ for a while and have constantly Fought with pH rising to and above 8.0. Finally decided t
  4. Apologies if this post is contrary to forum rules...please tell me if it needs to be removed. In 2015 I moved in with my girlfriend, now wife. She has a 1997 Hot Springs Prodigy spa. Her maintenance routine was to toss some chlorine into the water "when it needed it." She changed the water when it got gross. She had no test kits. About this time we replaced the soggy floppy cover with a solid cover like these from TheCoverGuy. In February 2017, the recirculation motor failed so I replaced it with this one. The spa had an ancient UV ozonizer installed, which I replaced with a Del Ozo
  5. Hey folks. I'm new to the forum, but not new to portable spas. I've got a 2003 Hawkeye spa that just had its first major failure. One of the heater relays failed in dramatic fashion. See attached photo. Anyhow, the board is pretty much toast and 14 years is a good run. It's a Gecko controller (model 0202-205108) and Gecko and many web vendors show 0202-205212 as a drop-in replacement. Not so in my case. I tried one and first of all it is designed to run the ozone any time the pump is on low speed. That's fine for the filter cycle and while heating, but to have the thing pumping ou
  6. We're in the market for a Spa. Admittedly I didn't know much about them before we started taking trips to various retailers around the area, and since then I've started doing a lot more research. At the moment, we're leaning towards the Arctic Spas "Cub", a 7x7 spa meant for 5 adults. https://www.arcticspas.ca/arctic-spas/arctic-cub/ I like the layout, a "captains" chair, a nice lounger, and plenty of additional space for a few friends. Doing a bit of research on various spa companies, it seems like for every "Company X is the greatest, excellent customer service, etc" there are two o
  7. My wife and I owned a D1 Aurora spa for 15 years. Early on, we discovered that she had skin sensititvity issue with most sanitizer systems. I couldn't use the D1 vision (silver ion) system, chlorine, or Bromine without her getting a severe itchy skin rash. I found that I could use Baqua Spa without ussue, and I used it for several years, but it was a pain in the butt, and caused other issues. About 8-9 years ago, I tried Pristine Blue (copper sanitizer system) and it was the answer to all my problems. I could maintain crystal clear water without using any chlorine (I used only the monopersulfa
  8. We just recently bought a 440 gallon Divine hot tub with 24 hour circulation pump and Del Ozonator. I really like the simplicity of chlorine and good experience with my pool swg so I decided to purchase a ControlOMatic ChlorMaker DO. I have recently learned how ozonators will oxidize the chlorine along with everything else, I just haven't been able to find the rate at which it will oxidize the chlorine. As far as bather load we will prob use it at least every night or every other night (1-3 bathers). I have also read that the ozone can break down a spa cover faster, is this true? How much
  9. Edit: Oh, duh! After posting and seeing my post title, it dawned on me what my other question was! I'll save that for another post. I've asked the mods to change the title of this thread. In short, I believe the Ozone system in my tub is disconnected. Perhaps that will have an effect on the post below? Thank you for this forum! I've already learned so much. I have a Taylor K-2006 and a bag of boric acid due for delivery Monday (working toward dichlor-bleach, eventually). I'm 3rd owner of a 2008 Arctic Spas Frontier Legend without much insight as to its care before me. I've had it ru
  10. I have a 2006 Hot Springs Vista (same as a Grandee with different seat layout). I need to replace the original Freshwater III ozone generator. I intend to replace everything associated with it at the same time, such as the tubing, check valve and injector. I would like to buy the replacement parts online before I open the panel, but, I need to know if I need a 120 volt unit or a 240 volt unit and what kind of plug or connection on the end of the cord. The spa is 240 volt, but, that doesn't necessarily mean the ozone generator is 240, although, I suspect it to be. Another question is, is t
  11. Hi, I've taken on looking after a friends pool. It's in-ground, lined, 25000L, Ozone system + chlorine tablets (trichlor) - about 2 year old. Location, Adelaide, Australia. Went to see a guy at the local pool shop today and he is skeptical of the ozone system and says I should just ignore it and do the more traditional method of a daily cup of powder and trickle feed with the tablets. He seems to think the chlorine levels will not be adequate, especially through a long hot Aussie summer. The ozone system was originally purchased in the hope of using less chlorine = better on the skin an
  12. I have a breand new Arctic ocean swim spa & while I'm happy with it so far, I am not happy with how much $ it may cost me to keep it balanced. I have the saltwater/ozone option but I've been told to shock it after every use (which is daily for one person). Since it is 1600 gallons, it needs 10-14 oz each day, which is about $4/day or $120/mo, which I wasn't counting on. That's the price from my dealer's brand (Apollo) and all it says on the bottle is "contains Potassium Monopersulfate". I've found better deals elsewhere, but I can't tell if they have the same formula. One says 43% PPMS...d
  13. HI. We need your opinions & advice please. First, I'll say that this is a much shorter version of my first more detailed post which explains why & who will be using our spa/hot tub. (see here:http://www.poolspaforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=45231 We had narrowed our large pool of spas down to 3, but were only able to wet test 2, which we did this past weekend. They were the Caldera Makena & the Vitaspa Envie. My husband wants the Caldera because he likes the lounger better & felt there was more control over each seat, & I want the Vitaspa because I was disappointe
  14. Hot Springs Sovereign; I think we got it around 2000. S/N is IQ2A2015; it has the IQ2000 controls, and is wired for 220. Two GFCI breakers- a 20A that runs the controls and circulation pump, and a 50A for the heaters and main pump. After a brief power outage two days ago, every time I reset the smaller, 20A breaker, it instantly trips. I replaced the breaker but problem continues. After the power outage, water backed up into the Ozone unit. I've disconnected the Ozone electrically but no change in behavior. I removed the metal bracket that obstructs the main board, didn't see any obvio
  15. Anyone have experience with this product? Will it work with Ozone? and Clearray? Thanks.
  16. Hello, I'm close to pulling the trigger on a J495 but I have a few questions that could help me negotiating with the dealer. 1. Can Ozone and Clearray co-exist? Any advantages? (will it reduce my chemicals and the smell associated with them?) 2. Anyone know what the dealer cost of these dealer options: Cover Cover lifter Ozone Smartseal (does it really save 25% electricity and worth the money) Prolites corner cabinetry lighting 3. Is it too much to ask for the dealer to include these in with the spa? (not asking for stereo or steps) Thanks
