    Just back from holiday... Spa is a mess!

    Hi,

    Just need some advice on my spa. Just back from a long trip overseas. It looks ok, slightly cloudy. But the numbers aren't so good.

    PH 6.8
    FC 0.5
    CC did not test
    TA 25
    CH 75
    CYA 35

    This is my plan at the moment. Any particular way to do this?

    5900 litre or 1558 gal above ground swim spa. Approx 5 years old and heated to 37 degrees celsius year round. Cartridge filter, ozonator, Nature2 mineral sanitiser, Aqua Health non chlorine based shock, Lithium Hypochlorite dosed at each spa usage. Filled using mostly stored rainwater from tanks, and town water when the tanks are drained.

    Only raise TA to 50. I'd raise FC to 12. CH only needs to be about 125 to prevent foaming.

    I have followed this process for a few years now for our tub and it works great. How do I use Chlorine in my Spa (or pool)?

    My spa is the cleanest it's ever been since using the TFP method. It's usually only needed a few tweaks, never a huge overhaul like this.

    Maybe it missed you while you were gone and is protesting.
