We got our spa in October of last year. We have drained it twice now - both times not bc we wanted to. The first time, the pump quit working. The guy came out and determined it was a filter - yes, a filter! Second time, the chems were way off and the water smelled weird - and it happened in JUST ONE DAY. Seriously.
We use the spa almost every day. It's usually 3 of us, but lately been 2. My husband does the chemical thing. He uses bromine in one of those floating thingees. Every time we get out we put some spa clean or some **** like that in there that Leslie Pools suggested.
What are we doing wrong, if anything? I bought the TP kit but my husband seems to be intimidated by it and only uses a part of it. I'm really nervous if we go out of town are we going to come back to a stinking, nasty mess? It really does seem to turn in one day....sigh....
and truly do we have to check the chems so much? Are spas really this much work?
