Maintaining the proper pH and alkalinity levels in your hot tub is important for ensuring that the water is safe and comfortable for users. If the pH or alkalinity levels are too low, the water can become acidic and irritating to the skin and eyes. If the levels are too high, the water can become cloudy or scale can form on the hot tub surfaces.
Here are some things you should know about pH and alkalinity increasers for hot tubs:
What they are:
pH and alkalinity increasers are chemicals that are designed to raise the pH and alkalinity levels in hot tub water. Most pH and alkalinity increasers are made from sodium carbonate, also known as soda ash.
When to use them:
You should use pH and alkalinity increasers when the pH and alkalinity levels in your hot tub water are too low. You can test the water using a pH and alkalinity test kit to determine if the levels are within the appropriate range.
How to use them:
To use a pH or alkalinity increaser, you will need to follow the instructions on the product label. Typically, you will need to dissolve the increaser in a bucket of water before adding it to the hot tub. It’s important to add the increaser slowly and in small amounts, testing the water frequently to avoid over-correction.
When handling pH and alkalinity increasers, it’s important to take proper safety precautions, such as wearing gloves and eye protection. You should also avoid mixing different chemicals together, as this can cause dangerous reactions.
Before using a pH or alkalinity increaser in your hot tub, it’s important to check with the manufacturer of your hot tub system to ensure that the product is compatible with your specific system.
By using pH and alkalinity increasers as needed, and by testing the water frequently to ensure that the levels are within the appropriate range, you can help ensure that your hot tub is a safe and comfortable environment for users.
