view the range of AquaSpa Products

Treating your new spa or swim spa with the AquaSpa chlorine and bromine free system is an easy process that will get you in your spa as quickly as possible!

  1. Fill spa, swim spa or hot tub with water. Leave the cover off.
  2. Premix 50gms of AquaSpa Chlorine Remover per 1,000L in a bucket of water and add to your spa water.
  • Run circulation pump and add the premixed chlorine remover.
  • Run your circulation pump for 2 hours prior to adding any other chemical.
  1. Check pH, Alkalinity and Calcium Hardness level. The ideal level of Alkalinity is between 80-140ppm; the ideal level of pH is between 7.2-7.6 and the ideal level of Calcium Hardness is between 80-120ppm.
  • Use AquaSpa Alkalinity Enhancer or AquaSpa pH Reducer to adjust your pH and Alkalinity levels as required. Note that these products enhance or reduce both pH and Alkalinity
  • Use AquaSpa Calcium Enhancer to increase the calcium if necessary.
  1. Add AquaSpa Spa Shock at 50gms per 1,000L. Run your filter pump only for 1 hour.
  2. Add AquaSpa Spa Sanitiser at 60ml per 1,000L. Run your filter pump only for 30 minutes.
  3. Add AquaSpa Spa Kleer at 60ml per 1,000L. Run your filter pump only for 30 minutes.
  4. Run your filter pump for a minimum of 6 hours, or until your spa water is clear.
  5. After 24 hours remove your filter cartridge and clean with AquaSpa Instant Filter Klenz.

 

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • More is not better - DO NOT OVERDOSE.
  • When adding chemicals, run filter pump only.
  • A light brown foam may appear around the waterline, depending on source water quality. This is a normal aftereffect as the Shock oxidizes water impurities. Simply wipe off the foam with a soft cloth. For a persistent line of brown scum add a further dose of AquaSpa Chlorine Remover.
  • AquaSpa is not compatible with chlorine or bromine based products.DO NOT COMPLIMENT TREATMENT WITH THESE PRODUCTS
  • Always remove cover when adding chemicals and leave uncovered for at least 30 minutes after treatment to allow spa to ‘breathe’.
  • Your spa should be allowed to breathe daily for 30 minutes with the cover removed
  • Add half a dose (25gm per 1000 litres) of AquaSpa Chlorine Remover prior to topping up your spa, swim spa or hot tub.
  • Your spa should be drained at least once per year (more often with higher bather loads). Use AquaSpa Pipe Klenz to clean oils and body fats from your pipe work.

MAINTAIN A SPA, SWIM SPA OR HOT TUB WITH AQUASPA

Maintaining an AquaSpa spa, swim spa, or hot tub is a simple, easy 3 STEP process.

General Information: When adding chemicals run filter pump only. Add chemicals 30 minutes apart.

STEP 1: Add AquaSpa Spa Sanitiser once per week at 60ml per 1,000L spa water.

STEP 2: Add Aquaspa Spa Kleer once per week at 60ml per 1,000 L spa water.

STEP 3: Add Aquaspa Spa Shock once per week at 20gms per 1,000L spa water.

Further Information

  • For optimum water clarity, or after heavy usage, add Aquaspa Spa Shock at 20 gms per 1,000 ltrs after each use.
  • Use AquaSpa Instant Filter Klenz to clean filter cartridges once per week OR after heavy bathing loads
  • If people drink alcohol in the spa they significantly increase the amount of perspiration and body fats in the spa. These body fats are trapped in the filter cartridge until it becomes clogged and then cloudy water will result. For optimum water clarity filter cartridges should be cleaned afterwards.
  • Check pH, Alkalinity and Calcium Hardness level once a week. The ideal level of pH is between 7.2-7.6. The ideal level of Alkalinity is between 80-140ppm and the ideal level of Calcium Hardness is between 80-120ppm.

Use AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Enhancer to increase pH. Use AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Reducer to decrease pH.

When adjusting pH it is better to use half the recommended dose at a time, rechecking after 1 hour.

Use AquaSpa Calcium Enhancer to increase Calcium.

TROUBLE SHOOTING

CLOUDY WATER

Cloudy water can be caused by one of 4 issues:

  1. Incorrect water balance.

Action

  • Check pH levels and adjust if necessary to between 7.2-7.6ppm
  • Check Alkalinity Levels and adjust if necessary to between 80-140ppm
  1. Incorrect dosing of AquaSpa Spa Sanitiser and/or AquaSpa Spa Kleer. Either too much or too little of both or either can cause cloudy water.

Action

  • Test the Sanitiser Level. Your desired level is 15-20ppm. If your spa has been overdosed, remove a third of the water and dilute with fresh water adding 25gms of AquaSpa Chlorine Remover per 1000L and then retest the sanitiser levels
  1. Blocked filter cartridges.

Action

  • Remove your filter cartridges and clean with AquaSpa Instant Filter Klenz
  • Shock dose your spa with a double dose of AquaSpa Shock and run the filter for 12 hours leaving the cover off the spa
  1. Build up of body fat in pipe work.

Action

  • Apply AquaSpa Pipe Klenz to clean the interior pipe work
  • Run your Spa for two hours, drain and flush spa, then thoroughly clean

BROWN SCUM

A line of brown scum can be caused either by excess body fats or when water contaminated with chlorine has been added to your spa.

Action

  • Add 50gms of AquaSpa Chlorine Remover and run the filter for 4 hours with the spa cover off.
  • Use AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Enhancer on a damp rag to remove the line of brown scum.

FOAMING

Foaming is usually caused by either incorrect water balance or an excess build up of body fats in the filter cartridge or pipe work.

Action

  • Add one cap of AquaSpa Anti-Foam to stop the foam from forming
  • Clean your filter cartridge with AquaSpa Instant Filter Klenz
  • If foaming persists, use AquaSpa Pipe Klenz and refill your spa

AQUASPA TESTING PROCEDURE

Water should be checked when spa is first filled and weekly thereafter.

The test kit tests for AquaSpa Spa Sanitiser (biguanide) and pH (AquaSpa Spa Sanitiser), pH and Alkalinity levels.

Sanitiser (Biguanide) level should be 15-20ppm.

  • To increase sanitiser level add AquaSpa Spa Sanitiser
  • If your spa has been overdosed, remove a third of the water and dilute with fresh water adding 25gms of AquaSpa Chlorine Remover per 1000L and then retest the sanitiser levels

pH level should be between 7.2-7.6ppm

  • To increase pH use AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Enhancer
  • Do not add more than 40gms of AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Enhancer (per 1000L) at a time.
  • To decrease pH use AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Reducer

Total Alkalinity levels should be between 80-140ppm

  • To increase total alkalinity, add AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Enhancer
  • Do not add more than 40gms of AquaSpa pH and Alkalinity Enhancer (per 1000L) at a time

 

Calcium Hardness should be between 80-120 ppm.

  • To increase Calcium Hardness level add AquaSpa Calcium Enhancer

WHAT IS THE LIFE OF A SPA FILTER?

If a spa filter is cleaned properly and at regular intervals as per the manufacturers instructions, then you can expect to get a minimum of up to 9,000 hours out of your filters.
