    Spa lights just stopped working

    Just thought I would update this in case it will help anyone else. In my case it ended up being the 2A fuse for the lights on the board. Just replaced the fuse with a new one and all is working now.

    Chlorine usage slightly hazy water after refill

    I do leave the filters in the tub for the ahhsome purge and then spray them off, but I put new filters in so I don't think it was the filter. Appreciate the thought though. No problems once the tub started holding chlorine, so I'm thinking mas was on to something with the municipal water.

    How do you counter act upward pH drive from aeration?

    I would suggest reading the TA section here: How do I use Chlorine in my Spa (or pool)? Right after a refill I add enough acid to bring the ph down to 7.2 and then aerate it back up to 7.8 or higher by running the all of the pumps with the air jets on. Keep doing this until eventually the ph...

    Thanks, mas. Makes sense and FC finally did stabilize. I'll keep this in mind for the next refill.

    Spa lights just stopped working

    Thanks - I ended up calling the spa store where I purchased it and it was under warranty so I'm having them look at it.

    Spa lights just stopped working

    We purged and refilled our hot tub on Saturday this weekend. By the time it came up to temp it was late, but the water looked great with the LED lights on. I spent the morning on Sunday balancing the water and getting the chlorine up to level and was really looking forward to a nice soak last...

    Adding Chlorine after getting out of hot tub

    See JasonLion's and Chem Geek's answer here Chlorine consumption per bather From the thread: According to my pool math calculations, this is also 3 fl oz of 10% bleach, or 2.5 oz of 12% chlorine. So the rule of thumb for me is 5 fl oz of 6% bleach per person-hour. This seems to be pretty...

    Hot Tub in Below Freezing Temps

    Hello everyone. We're supposed to get some below freezing temps in the mid-west this week (low of -12F tomorrow plus a wind chill). I'm a first time hot tub owner and was curious if anything needed to be done for weather that's this cold to prevent any damage. The hot tub has a circ pump that...
