We purchased our first hot tub in June 2015. 320 Gallon Hydropool Serenity 5000.
Started with Chlorine system which caused coughing & sneezing, so at the first water change, 3-4 mths later, we changed over to Bromine at the suggestion of our hot tub dealer. Bromine was much easier on the respiratory system, however, immediately caused skin irritation.
At this point our dealer suggested Spa Marvel. After speaking with a few people in our community who tried it, we decided to look for an alternative as they were not completely happy.
This is when I found the Spa Depot site and the Cleanwater Blue system. Although I couldn't find much online in relation to this product other than on the Spa Depot site, I decided to take a chance and try it based on the great reviews. I know my dealer, as well as a few others in town, have their own brand of product so figured Spa Depot as well would have and this may be why I couldn't much else online regarding the Cleanwater Blue.
We did a water change in the middle of March 2016 and started up with the Cleanwater Blue; following the instructions strictly. Had sparkling clear water. The best looking water we have ever had! No coughing, sneezing, skin irritation or milky foaming water "AT ALL" while running jets and air on high. I thought we were golden and loved every aspect of this system UNTIL, about a week and a half into it when the water turned a cloudy green color.
I have several times since been able to clear the water back to sparkling crystal clear, however, continue after about a week and a half, of getting cloudy green water, with this last bought being unable to recover my crystal clear water.
I absolutely love it when it's good but absolutely hate it when it's bad! I am constantly checking sanitizer, Alk & PH to ensure they are in check but it doesn't seem to matter.
Just wondering if anyone else has tried this system and if so, do you have any suggestions to tweak it.
