Amerse Metal and Stain Remover
Metal and stain control is an important aspect of hot tub maintenance, as metals such as copper and iron can build up in the water over time and cause staining on the hot tub’s surfaces. Here are some things you should know about metal and stain control for hot tubs:
Use a quality metal and stain control product: A good metal and stain control product will help prevent the buildup of metals (phosphates) in the water and protect your hot tub surfaces. Look for a product that is specifically designed for hot tubs, and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.
Check your water chemistry regularly: Imbalanced water chemistry can contribute to the buildup of metals in the water. Make sure you are testing your water regularly and adjusting the pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels as needed to keep the water balanced.
Avoid using metal objects in the hot tub: Metal objects such as jewelry, tools, or even the metal parts of swimsuits can introduce metals into the water. Encourage your hot tub users to avoid bringing any metal objects into the tub.
Consider a pre-filter: A pre-filter can help remove metals from your water before it enters the hot tub. This can be especially useful if you have well water or other water sources that are high in metals.
Drain and refill your hot tub regularly: Even with proper metal and stain control, metals can build up in the water over time. It’s a good idea to drain and refill your hot tub every 3-4 months to keep the water fresh and prevent buildup.
By following these tips, you can help keep your hot tub’s water and surfaces clean and free of stains from metal buildup.
