Your water sanitizer will be the best way for you to avoid cloudy hot tub water which will make your guests cringe when you lift up your hot tub covers. Your water sanitizer system should use a hot tub shock treatment, hot tub chemicals and an ozone system for the cleanest water possible. If you use these three processes correctly, your water sanitizer system will work flawlessly.
Using hot tubs shock treatment will fix most hot tub water problems such as cloudy hot tub water. Shock treatment is basically using a big dose of chlorine, or non-chlorine shock (there are a couple different kinds of these). The main purpose of using shock treatment is to break down any organic waste and bacteria in your hot tubs water. This organic waste makes your hot tubs water smell bad, and makes cloudy hot tub water. Shocking your hot tub every time you fill your home spas up with water and then every couple weeks will make the cleanest water and also allow your hot tub chemicals to work more effectively.
Bromine, chlorine, biguanide, along with some other mineral systems are all used as hot tub water sanitizer “chemicals”. Hot Tubs and Portable Spas puts the word chemicals in quotes there because biguanide, or the mineral systems aren’t chemicals but they are used in place or in conjunction with chemicals for those that prefer those smells or systems. For more information about hot tub chemicals, go to that section of Hot Tubs and Portable Spas.
A hot tub ozonator is not a water sanitizer, but it will help your hot tub water sanitizers work. People that try to tell you that you can just use ozone as a water sanitizer should not be listened to, ozone will not be enough to sanitize your hot tubs water.
