WHY USE BIOFRESH TABLETS?
Hot Tubs and spas, by their very nature, are breeding grounds for all types of bugs and pathogens. Bacteria love hot water and multiply much faster than in cold water. Correct levels of sanitisers (Chlorine, Bromine, etc.) reduce the risks of infection but the most common area of potential bacterial growth is often ignored or overlooked - the pipes and tubes carrying the water. These are collection points for bio-film which is made up of a collection of oils, fats, solid matter, organics and bacteria. Biofilm may be present on any surface that has constant contact with water and Hot Tubs and spas are particularly prone to the collection of bio-film. Even high levels of sanitiser such as Chlorine or Bromine won't remove it.
WHAT IS BIOFRESH AND HOW DO I USE IT?
This tablet becomes active when added to water, forming chlorine dioxide which then attacks and destroys the bio-film in the spa pipes and equipment. Do not be misled by the name, Chlorine Dioxide is totally different from Chlorine. Its unique nature enables it to penetrate the bio-film, destroying it along with any bacteria present. Regular use will prevent bio-film from forming, keeping your spa healthier for longer and making your regular sanitiser more effective. Simply peel a tablet from the foil and pop it into the skimmer of the spa every few months.
