Spa water can go 'off' much more quickly than swimming pool water. If you leave your spa without any sanitiser in it for several days the spa water will start to grow organisms very quickly. These organisms will not only be in the parts of the spa that you can see but also in all the pipework. They will form a layer on the inside of the pipes known as 'biofilm'. Biofilm allows all sorts of organisms to grow under it's protective layer. Once biofilm is established it is hard to get rid of it. The best thing is to establish a routine to prevent it getting established in the first place.
Bromine is the most widely used sanitiser for hot tubs and spas as it is less volatile at the high temperatures which spas operate and does not form smelly by products. Bromine is normally supplied as white tablets, bromo-chloro-dimethyl hydantoin (BCDMH), which are placed in a floating dispenser. BCDMH should not be added directly to the spa or through a skimmer. The dispenser is adjusted to give a bromine level between 3 and 6 pm.
We trust Total Pool Chemicals to supply our customers with top quality products based on their expertise gained, not only in swimming pool management, but also the chemical industry. A swimming pool plant room contains three of the basic elements of all chemical processes - fluid transfer, filtration and chemical reactions. Managing these functions is a chemical engineering challenge and Total Pool Chemicals has two graduate chemical engineers dedicated to this work. This expertise led to the development of the patented Poolcure chemical system that is used in many of the largest leisure pools in the UK to eliminate combined chlorines.
