  1. I am trying to do the decontamination process from Nitro. I have already done the enzyme part and dumped that. Now it's filled and I am trying to balance it to the TA of 80 and PH of 7.2. I've got the TA at 80 but nothing is getting the PH down. I just bought the test kit K-2106. The PH is showing at the highest level, and I only have to add 2 drops and it turns pink. So I check the book and for my 350 gallon spa I calculate that I need .63875 oz of muratic acid (18.89 ml) I do that and come back a few hours later or the next morning and test again. It gives me the same thing - high
  2. I bought a used/refurbished hot tub a year ago. No problems for the past year at all. Kept chemical levels good and drained/refilled every 3 months. None the less I developed biomold and it seemed to happen overnight. I used two rounds of Spa Purge (drained and refilled after each round) and there was definitely a good amount that loosened up and drained out. Before refilling again I used a shop vac to suck water out of each jet. I also used the shop vac in reverse to blow the jets out. Problem is every time I do this more and more biofilm comes out of the jets. It seemed the Spa Purge worked
  3. Hello! This is my first post here, so first off thank you to everyone who has contributed and made this forum a great place to learn from unbiased (not the salesperson at Leslie's) about my new hot tub. I'm having a water chemistry and decontamination problem that I'm hoping for help with. My tub: Divine DL 1040 from Costco 440 gallons Usine 3-step bromine as detailed on this site. The backstory: I forgot to maintain my water balance and sanitizer levels for about a month back in May/June, so of course it was nasty when I finally opened it up. I superchlorinated overnight, drained and
  4. I own a marque spirit 2 person hot tub approximately nine years old. I ended up with the house and the hot tub in a divorce but not before my Ex. let the hot tub sit covered with about 6" of water. The inside of the tub is now filled with slugs and black mold I mean covered. Should I even try and save this tub? I have missed my hot tub and can not afford a new one. Thanks for any help.
  5. I'm the new owner of a 2000 Hot Springs Sovreign (Model I) hot tub. I basically got it for free from a friend of a friend, just had to pay for the move, a new ozonator, and a new top. They weren't using it. I had it checked out before the move. It did look like it had once had some sort of creature living for sometime behind the door in with the motor/heater/etc. This worried me some, but when I had it checked out the guy ran the tub and it just needed an ozonator and had no leaks, so I figured the creature had not eaten away at any of the pipes. I'm preparing to do a full system clean
  6. I recently bought a forclosure with an in-ground fiberglass spa separate from the pool with it's own pump/filter system. It was covered, full of water, and had not been turned on in probably 2 years (green scum on top but didn't really look too bad). I drained and refilled it, had the filter cartridge checked (it's a large pressure filter like a pool), had the system checked, and with a few minor repairs it's up and running. Now I want to disinfect it. All of the disinfection processes I've found involve draining the tub 2-3 times. Two issues - my area has severe water restrictions, and I
