Spa Products & Chemicals
Nothing feels quite as good as easing yourself into a nice warm spa and letting the bubbles work their magic. Spas reduce stress levels, soothe sore muscles and improve circulation. Spa maintenance is important and easy, that’s why were here to tell you how BioGuard SPA products can help keep your spa in top condition, so it can do the same for you. Keep in mind that spas are all different, so make sure you consult your manual for equipment operation and maintenance procedures, and visit a BioGuard Poolside Retailer for expert advice.
Water balance is important as it ensures that the mineral content of the water is in an appropriate state to protect the spa surface and equipment and make spa water more comfortable to bathe in. Water balance is affected by a wide range of variables – the quality and source of the water, what chemicals are added to the water, the exposure of the spa to weather conditions, etc.
The combination of hot water and heavy use places a high demand on the oxidiser used in a spa. Even over a short period of time, spas can accumulate substantial waste material from a variety of sources, including the bathers themselves, animals, insects, pollutants and the general environment.
Much like in a swimming pool, sanitation or disinfection plays a crucial role in spas to treat bacteria. The combination of heavy use and hot water places a tremendous burden on the sanitiser used. Whatever the source, all of the billions of micro-organisms present in a spa need to be killed in some way and as quickly as possible.
When debris accumulates to the point where filtration efficiency is affected, a spa owner is faced with increased operating costs and poor water quality. Backwashing or cleaning becomes more frequent, increasing water and chemical usage, whilst poorer filtration increases chemical consumption in an effort to compensate. Cleaning is a vitally important part of the spa maintenance process.
