  1. I have a Hot Springs Grandee that is about 3-4 years old. I have been using the same chemicals in it since i got it. (dealer suggested). My wife rarely gets in because she has sensitive skin and breaks out itching and red skin. Even I find it really drying my skin out. I am using: Freshwater continuous silver ion cartridge , SpaGuard Enhanced Shock, SpaGuard Shock-Oxidizer plus their Stain and Scale and PH Decreaser. Those are all I use. Does anyone have suggestions for better results and works with Hot Spring Spas?
  2. Hello i am wondering if there are any chemicals that are recommended you should wait to swim after you put them in? We use bromine, I am only at my bf’s house on the weekends and I am the one that maintains the chemicals. I need to lower the alkalinity in the tub but I also want to use the tub while I’m here. How long should I wait?
  3. In an effort to save money as the cost of replastering is expensive, I've recently decided to apply an epoxy paint to my 11,000 gallon in ground pool. It looks great and so far so good, it cost about $600 for supplies and prepping vs. quotes of $4,500 - $7,000 to replaster. My question is what chemicals to use in the water. I've heard differing opinions on di-chloro, tri-chloro and cal hypo to regulate chlorine in the water. I live in Las Vagas and the days are hot and sunny. Does anyone have any recommendations or experience with what chlorine/shock chemicals are best in an epoxy pai
  4. Hi all, I am a newbie to hot tubs, I have had my 1500L hot tub set up for just over a week now and already I have had to do a water change due to a film which leaves grease on my hand constantly appearing on the water no matter what. When I do a water test the PH is fine, Total alkalinity is fine and chlorine is fine. However every morning when I do a test the chlorine has completely disappeared and I have to put a dosage of chlorine in the water again. It still does the same thing even after a complete water change. It also seems to be leaving a sticky scummy scale round the side of the hot t
  5. Hi. I'm new here. I've been reading all the posts and learning a lot, but I'll admit I'm pretty confused and not sure if some of the things I've read applies to my situation. We bought a used tub last month. We cleaned it well (we think) and filled it up. We had ordered a starter kit of chemicals from SpaDepot and between those and the tub instructions/paperwork, started adding things: alkaline decreaser, PH down, bromine etc. Our 1st problem we ran into was that we did not know that we had to add both the bromine and the spa shock too. After a visit to the local pool store we learned th
  6. Okay, I am new to the hot tub world, but have purchased a 2003 HS Sovereign and need to know what chemicals I need and if there is a good (less expensive) online option for purchasing these. I am about an hour away from the nearest dealer so need to be able to do as much as possible on my own. Also, I saw where specific brands are referenced. Are there less expensive subs that can be used or do I need to stick the specific brands noted? Thank you so much in advance!!
