    Saltron Mini in hot tub

    I've read pretty good reviews on this site about the Saltron mini, I currently use the bleach method but it can be hard to keep adding daily chlorine. I have a 500 Gal tub with ozone. Just curious on everyone's opinion, I've heard a few people mention how the salt can harm some equipment.

    Leaving town for 2 months

    Thanks everyone for the replies, all sound like valid points! FYI My local spa repair guy advised me to set to vacation mode and just have a neighbor dump in chlorine once a week, then refill when I get back.

    Leaving town for 2 months

    Hi everyone, I have a Hydropool Self clean model with UV/ozone that uses liquid chlorine. I have to leave town for about 2 months. Any suggestions on how to best leave the tub? I am going to drain and refill when I return regardless. I was thinking of just setting to "vacation" mode and...

    Hot Tub is Too Hot

    Sometimes I add fresh water from the hose to cool it down, can usually drop it pretty quick with 55 degree water. I need water often anyway due to kids splashing...

    Treating Spa after kids use? Is this too much?

    Got it, I understand. I have been checking my PH daily and even with the Liquid Chlorine my PH has been in range. I will keep a close watch on it!

    Treating Spa after kids use? Is this too much?

    Thanks everyone! He specifically used the words "liquid CL will eat your spa up" regarding the liquid chlorine, I am assuming he means people putting too much in or something and hurting the equipment/seals? Appreciate that! I have come up with a similar calculation using the above and pool...

    Treating Spa after kids use? Is this too much?

    Thanks @RDspaguy ! So I was talking to my local dealer service tech, and he was pretty against using liquid chlorine and said to only use Dichlor after use. My question is how do I keep up with bather demand with just Dichlor? It seems like since we have 4-6 people using ours daily, I would...

    Idea: Using a "drip" to dose liquid chlorine when on holidays?

    Love the idea. I have the same issue as my ozonator destroys the FC overnight.

    Treating Spa after kids use? Is this too much?

    Hello, I have been following the helpful advice of the folks on this site and also doing the dichlor/bleach method. I have been using 10% bleach after use, but I think i am not using quite enough as I had some cloudiness and doing some SLAM now to clear. We regularly have 3 or 4 adults and 3...

    WaterGuru in a hot tub?

    Does anyone have a water guru and use it for a hot tub? I know it's meant for a pool skimmer, but my tub has a large skimmer. I would have to think of a way to modify it but it could work I think? Thoughts?

    High CYA in 2 week old hot tub?

    Hey all, is bleach ok to use? I can't read the label very well in the pic? Trying to find something that can be delivered and not crazy expensive. https://www.walmart.com/ip/New-Clorox-Disinfecting-Bleach-Regular-Concentrated-Formula-121-Ounce-Bottle/341539270

    High CYA in 2 week old hot tub?

    So it seems like I've been using WAY too much Dichlor in my tub. After I drain and refill, I can either go with the Dichlor/bleach method, or would it be ok to use Dichlor ONLY but maximum dose of around .25 oz per day? By using pool math that should be sufficient for my size hot tub? 430...

    High CYA in 2 week old hot tub?

    Hello I have a 2 week old 500 gallon Hydropool with Ozone. I have been adding 2oz of granulated Dichlor daily as we have a large family of 7. Today I tested the CYA as very high around 200-300. Am I doing something wrong that this happened so soon? I am aware of the regular bleach method...

    Hydropool 770P w/ Ozone - Dichlor granules daily vs Trichlor tabs in dispenser?

    Hi everyone, I have a new Hydropool 770P with Ozone and UV-C. It has a built in dispenser in the filter for 1" tablets. My dealer told me to add granulated Dichlor daily, but I am worried about being able to do this daily if I am traveling etc. I read the benefits of Dichlor over Trichlor...

    Hydropool Spa Filter and heat modes?

    Yah I agree it's confusing. So my control panel doesn't have beginner. It came set to "Standard", which has a filter cycle set for 12pm, 6pm, and midnight that runs for 6 hours. There are no economy schedules set. Beyond standard it has the away, energy saver, super energy saver, and...

    Hydropool Spa Filter and heat modes?

    Hello, I have a new Hydropool 770 spa. It has several filtering and heating modes which are explained poorly in the manual. We use it daily right now, should I just leave it in standard filtering mode? I am assuming it is cleaning and heating 24/7. TIA! WATER CARE The Water Care section...

    Got it, I am getting it. If I did use the tablets in the dispenser, what would you recommend? Something like this or? https://www.amazon.com/Pool-Spa-60001CLX-Chlorinating-1-5-Pound/dp/B00PZZFQKY/ref=psdc_1272967011_t5_B002WKQ1C2

    Ok thanks! I was reading in my owners manual and it mentions using the built in Chlorine dispenser on the tube attached to the main filter. Should I be using this instead of just dropping into the water? Here is a pic:

    Thank you! The dealer recommended about 1/2 ounce per day of CL or every couple days if we aren't using it. Also, do you recommend one of those floating slow release CL dispensers or is that a bad idea?

    Hi everyone. I’ve got a new hot tub (Hydropool 770) with Ozone and UV. I’ve been able to balance the water but everyday regardless of bathers the CL goes to nearly 0. For example last night I added CL and for a reading of 6. Tonight after no bathers all day I had a CL reading of 0. Is this...
