Lilian's words echo our core values – a dedication to service, expertise, and making your pool and spa journey seamless and enjoyable. Speaking of journeys, let's embark on the enlightening exploration of an important question:

Featured Question:

"How often should you change spa chemicals?"

pH Harmony

Your curiosity, akin to Lilian's, holds the key. The art of spa chemical equilibrium relies on crucial insights:

1. Sanitising with Chlorine or Bromine: Maintaining chlorine or bromine levels within the recommended range is crucial. Regular testing, ideally after each spa use, ensures water that's both safe and soothing.
    2. pH Harmony: Aim for a pH range of 7.2 to 7.8. Regular checks and adjustments preserve water comfort and prevent equipment wear.
      3. Alkalinity and, if you have a gas heater, Calcium Hardness: These factors contribute to water balance. Test them regularly to keep on top of water safety.

        4. Shocking and Sanitising the Spa: Before and after getting into the spa, use a spa shock and sanitiser specifically designed for spas to get rid of most of the bacteria brought into the spa by users.

        5. Consider a biofresh treatment every 3-6 months: while sanitising the spa before and after every use is best practice, over time bacteria can build in the pipes in the form of biofilm where bacteria can flourish. A regular Chlorine Dioxide treatment can help destroy all bacteria that daily sanitisers miss.

        Shocking the spa
