hi again, it's been a while since i have posted. i found this site when my mother bought a house with a green slim pool a few years back. the info on this site helped me keep the pool clean with out really any work for the last few years. i've had a hot tube for the last 11 years and just bought a new one 2 weeks ago. it's a hot springs vangard, the tub is nice but i kinda wished i had gotten a bigger tub. it doesn't have the foot room my last one had.
but to my questions.
the tub has a FreshWater III Corona Discharge Ozonator and they sell a Hot Spring FreshWater Ag+ Continuous Silver Ion Purifier to work with the Ozonator. has anyone use the Silver Ion Purifier? does it help or is it a waste of cash?
i have hard water with a ch around 225. hot springs says to have a ch of 100, 50 ch min and 150 ch max. but also says if the ch is over 150 to use Vanishing Act to remove the calcium from the water. they make it sound like a ch of 0 is good for the spa? but if i need to really lower the ch i am will to do that. i'm just not sure what benefit i will get from lowering the ch if i keep my ph and TA in check.
right now i'm at
ps i do use a stain and scale inhibitor. the main reason i started using it a few years ago because i was slacking on my up keep of my old spa. i didn't spend the time to check my ph and ta, i just threw in some MA at every water change lol. if spinners quit spinning i threw in more MA until they did.
but i decided to take much better care of our new spa. is a stain and scale inhibitor ok to use? how about weekly?
