    Nordic Crown XL whirlpool jet bezel

    Got it figured out. Turns out someone in my family thought that they should just spin freely and broke the little flimsy plastic tabs off the inner workings of the top bezel. The bottom one isn't too far behind. The place I bought the tub from is looking into ordering me a couple new ones...

After using Dichlor granules the first couple of treatments I decided to go for the liquid chlorine method after a soak (2 oz. of 10% Pool...

    New spa

    Moved from here. Hi all, Thanks so much for all the valuable insight. After reading through this entire thread (and many others) I just want to re-iterate what I think I am understanding is correct. Assuming water is balanced. I should add enough Dichlor granules (what I have currently) for long...

    Hi all, Colorado mountain town native here

    I have been lurking on this site for a while and decided to sign up recently. I am the proud new first time hot tub owner of a 2021 Nordic Spas Crown XL that only took 6 months to arrive at my house! Lol. I have been struggling with the right combination of water chemistry and have subjected...
