The kit includes the following products :
Based on a hot tub volume of 1000 liters
Test your hot tub water with your test kit or strip and adjust the parameters
pH - (7.2 - 7.8)
pH is a measure of how acidic or basic the water is. If the water is below 7.0, the water is acidic. If the pH is above 7.0, the water is basic.Acidic water can cause pitting of the heater element, and can damage the equipment. Basic water forces the calcium dissolved in the water out of solution, causing cloudy water and scaling.The pH also has a dramatic effect on the sanitizer effectiveness in the water. A high pH level results in greatly reduced sanitizer effectiveness.
What to do ?
TOTAL ALKALINITY (TA) - (100 - 120 PPM)
Total Alkalinity is a measure of alkaline salts in the water. It acts as a buffer to the pH, helping to hold the pH at 7.2 - 7.8. If the Total Alkalinity is low, the pH will tend to stay lower as well. If the Total Alkalinity is high, the pH will tend to drift higher. When the Total Alkalinity level is out of range, the result is a highly unbalanced water condition, which can cause damage to copper heater elements, light rings, stainless steel fittings, dials, ladders, and concrete pool surfaces.
What to do?
CALCIUM HARDNESS (CH) - (150-200 PPM)
Calcium Hardness is a measure of the amount of Calcium present in the hot tub water. Soft water (water with a low Calcium Hardness level) is corrosive and damaging to the equipment in a hot tub. Hard water (water with high Calcium Hardness level) tends to form scale on the surface of the hot tub and on the heater element, and makes the water feel gritty to the touch.
