My 2007 Artesian Island is starting to show its age. The latest leak was a failed Poly-Planer speaker cone that had a bad scratchy sound to it. While disconnecting the speaker wire, I found a pond of water behind the speaker. Removed the plastic decorative cover and saw that the speaker cone had failed and was letting water splash out and into the interior of the spa insulation. A spa leak from a speaker, very sneaky.
I'm not liking the bromine. The borate didn't give me the results I wanted in terms of spa water "feel".
I cannot maintain the spa every day because I'm on the road for weeks at a time. Hence, bromine. Chlorine sounds like it's easier on your skin and doesn't stink if done right. So, researching the latest automation.
I think I'd like to be on Chlorine. Need something automated. Like the idea of cutting chemical use with an ozonator.
But speaking of ozonators, there's also AOP, Crystal Pro Pure Ozone Mixing Chamber, Crystal AOP Pro Pure Advanced, Nature 2, and me yawning.
Would like the spa water to feel like soft water, so salt water is on my mind.
Who's making the lowest maintenance, lowest chemical use, least amount of chemical stink, highest quality, best water feel, trouble free spa?
Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.
Happy Memorial Day!
