21st Century Hot Tub Water Maintenance

Enzymes are the most recent advancement in hot tub chemical maintenance, and you should learn more about them if you want a less expensive, easier, and ecologically friendly choice. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, spas, hot tubs, and swim spas saw major sales increases from 2020 to 2022. Rather than being able to travel, residents all over the world have turned to backyard products like hot water therapy and exercise to improve their living conditions.

Chlorine and bromine-based solutions, which were initially created for cooler-temperature swimming pools, are 1970s technology when it comes to managing hot tub water. All-natural enzymes are now thought to be the most cutting-edge technology for providing clean, clear, luxurious, and environmentally friendly water in a hot tub.

Chlorine and Bromine are the most effective Sanitizers, BUT……..

Let us be clear about something! Chlorine and bromine are the most powerful sanitizers on the market today for eliminating bacteria and burning out residue, and only a small amount is needed in any chemical maintenance plan. When used as the foundation of your hot water maintenance system, however, chlorine and bromine have downsides.

Chlorine and bromine products operate best in a pH range of 7.2 to 7.6 in a well-balanced water environment. The pH balance is affected by constant additions of chlorine or bromine, as well as other elements such as body sweat, lotions, skin cells, minerals, and so on. These systems necessitate regular testing and adjustment, which many find tedious.

Enzymes demand that you initially balance your water, paying special attention to alkalinity, allowing the enzymes to lock-in the pH that is ideal for them. Depending on the enzyme product you buy, they will keep your hot water pure for one to three months without needing to be monitored. This is especially useful for hot tub owners who are unable to use their spa.

The industry recommends that chlorine and Bromine products need to maintain a level of 3 – 5 ppm

Higher temperatures in hot tubs will break down chlorine and bromine more quickly, as well as raise bacteria levels, which will consume the sanitizer faster than in cooler temps. Enzymes, on the other hand, perform better in warmer temperatures and will not degrade at temperatures below 180 degrees Fahrenheit.

The user may feel various unpleasant side effects while sitting in the hot water with increased levels of chlorine, such as dry / itchy skin or even more extreme dermal sensitivity. They may also experience lung or sensory irritation as a result of the chlorine fumes, and the odor will linger on the body longer. You just need to sanitize the water with a small bit of sanitizer 20 minutes before you get in the tub if you use an enzyme product. This gives you ample time to eliminate any germs that have accumulated and then off-gas so you aren't soaked in unpleasant chemicals. Enzymes also give the skin a pleasant feel, which adds to the whole soaking experience.

Chlorine and bromine will not attack or destroy the biofilm that has formed on your spa's piping. This biofilm is a build-up of oils and organics that aren't eliminated by chlorine or bromine, and it serves as both food and a hiding place for bacteria. Enzymes remove the biofilm on a regular basis, reducing the quantity of bacteria in the pipes. Enzymes also reduce the need to flush your plumbing system once a year.

Chlorine and bromine are oxidizers that can adversely affect pipe seals and various systems equipment, whereas enzymes are a more gentle alternative.

These days, we're all trying to be more environmentally careful, because chlorine and bromine are both harmful to the environment. Most localities have regulations prohibiting the discharge of these products into neighbouring water sources. When it's time to replace the water in your hot tub, which should be done every three months, you may be environmentally conscientious by choosing enzyme solutions with all-natural ingredients.

Many chemical companies recognise the importance of enzymes in a hot water planned maintenance and recommend using an enzyme solution as a supplement once a week to keep the water clean, clear, and fresh while the tub is not in use. For extra convenience, enzymes are compatible with Chlorine, Chlorine salt, Bromine, and Ozone producers.

Enzymes are cutting-edge technology in hot water maintenance and one would ask, “Why not switch to enzymes?”
