    Non-Chlorine Oxidizing Shock for Spa

    The precise product am using is OXY-SPA from Spa-Depot, Non-Chlorine Oxidizing Shock; 42.8% Potassium Peroxymonosulfate, 57.2% Inert Ingredients, 4.3% Active Oxygen.

    It is my understanding this product is not a sanitizer and therefore should not raise my free chlorine?

    Can you help me understand why my total chlorine jumped 5ppm after adding this product and running pumps for 20-min.

    I am confused that this is increasing my combined chlorine rather than decreasing.

    Thank you,
    H2X 19' Trainer Deep SwimSpa, Model 1270. ECO PUR water filter system. 231" X 94" X 60". SwimSpa buried 32" deep with decking/patio built around unit. Spa side capacity = 225 gallons, Swim side capacity = 2045 for a total capacity of 2270 gallons. Ozone system, 4 pumps, 48 jets, LED lights, Aquavibe sound system w/sub woofer. T-100 TFTestKit.

    Hi there. I think its just causing false readings...the MPS in that product will cause a false reading on your cc read, I am given to believe.
    I just use beach/chlorine to oxidize after very soak...7 ppm per person per hour is the recommended rate.

    Some prefer MPS...your call...just don't believe te cc part of your tests if you continue to use

    If you have a FAS-DPD chlorine test like the ones we recommend (the TFTestkits TF-100 or the Taylor K-2006), then you can get the Taylor K-2042 to distinguish between MPS and real CC.
