Why do I need Chlorine for my Lay-Z-Spa?
Chlorine granules disinfect the spa water by killing bacteria which builds up in your Lay-Z-Spa; they are quick dissolving and relatively pH neutral. Chlorine treatment is essential when using a Lay-Z-Spa hot tub, regardless of how long you plan to use the water in your spa for.
How do I test the level of Chlorine in my Lay-Z-Spa?
You can use the Clearwater test strips provided in this starter kit to test the chlorine and pH levels in your hot tub. Alternatively you can buy the Clearwater Dip Tests separately from the kit or if you prefer a non-disposable alternative, a Bestway Aquatester. You should test the water before every use, to check that the chemical levels are correct and safe and also that the pH is between 7.6 and 7.2.
How should I add Chlorine to my Lay-Z-Spa?
If you need to increase the amount of chlorine in your hot tub, then this can be achieved by sprinkling the chlorine granules directly in to your spa water (if your water temperature is over 20°C) or alternatively by pre-diluting in a container of warm water (this method should always be used if your applying to a hot tub with a water temperature of under 20°C). Try adding chlorine a little at a time to prevent over chlorination.
What if my Lay-Z-Spa becomes over-chlorinated?
If you hot tub becomes over chlorinated then you should wait for the chlorine level to naturally drop (this will happen on its own over a period of days) and re-test before using.
Why & how should I manage pH levels of the spa water?
For Chlorine Granules to work effectively and efficiently, the pH levels in your hot tub must be kept at the optimum level. The optimum pH level for your hot tub is between 7.6 and 7.2.
If the pH of your spa water is above 7.6 then you can use the Clearwater pH Minus provided in this starter kit to reduce it, using the application instructions on the bottle. If the pH of your spa water is below 7.2 then you can use the Clearwater pH Plus provided in the starter kit to increase it, using the application instructions on the bottle.
What is Algaecide and why do I need it?
Algaecide (Algae Remover) is a highly effective way to eliminate algae and prevent it from appearing your hot tub. Algae is a microscopic plant that comes in many guises and adores the nutrients found in spa water. Although algae doesn’t do direct harm to bathers or your hot tub, it looks unpleasant and provides an ideal breeding ground for germs and bacteria which can all lead to more serious problems. Getting rid of hot tub algae couldn’t be simpler. If algae forms on or below the waters surface you simply pour the recommended dose of algae remover into the spa. Ideally the algae killer should be applied where water inlets are situated so that it disperses evenly and effectively throughout the water.
It is important to shower before every use of your Lay-Z-Spa to wash off natural oils that accumulate on your body as well as any deodorants, moisturisers etc. This will help your filters to last longer, reduce the quantity of chemicals that you need to use on treating the spa and also increase the lifetime of your pump.
