  1. Hi there, I hope that you are all well. Hot tub newbie here! We had our hot tub delivered last week We were given instructions to fill the tub and, once it reached 26 degrees or over, put 4-6 tablespoons of bromine into the water. We were then advised to check the levels using strips and to add a capful of PH reducer or TA enhancer as necessary. The strips seemed far from accurate, but we got to a level where the colours seemed to match. However, after only being in the hot tub twice, we have all come out in a rash. Not to put too fine a point on it, I am covered in spots! We asked our hot tub supplier for help and they said that we were given bad advice on almost all fronts and that we needed only a couple of level teaspoons of bromine. Having had such a bad experience, we are keen to start again and get things completely safe We have replaced the water and are desperately trying to get those strip colours to match. However, the PH always seems too high. Sorry to waffle on... we are just at our wits end! Thank you for your time... I really appreciate your help!
  2. My old spa was 355 gallons. I tested weekly and double checked with the local spa store. I always kept the water in perfect balance. It was good for a good 3-4 months, per testing, before i'd have to drain the water. Well, It finally died so replaced it with a smaller Hot Springs SX, 285 gallons. Perfect tub for my wife and I. Love the tub, but after only 1 and a half months, the Total Dissolved Solids and Cyanuric Acid are very high. I don't want to change my water every 2 months! It was only a 70 gallon difference in size. Any ideas how to prolong my water changes? Anyone out there with the SX or similar spa with 285 gallons? If so, how long do you go between water changes?
  3. So i am using leisure time test strips. I went to test my water and I am getting a bright orange reading for the bromine level?? Is this due to it being beyond the 20ppm reading? It was recently off during a snow storm for like three days so maybe its contaminated? Help me oh spa wizards!!
