***Note: If you are new to owning a hot tub or are considering a chlorine regimen it is important to note that any "allergies" you may have experienced in a public hot tub or public pool were most likely not an allergic reaction and there is a very small chance that you are actually allergic to chlorine. More importantly if you start on a chlorine regimen and wish to switch off it there is no need to fully drain and refill the unit, simply discontinue use and switch, unfortunately switching from an alternate sanitizer to chlorine would require a full drain and refill of the unit.
Label Directions For Use: Ensure all spa and hot tub equipment is working properly. Backwash or clean the filter system following manufacturer's directions. Adjust pH to between 7.2-7.6. When using other products as outlined in the directions for this product, always follow directions on those products. Spas should be drained and cleaned at least every 60 days or whenever water becomes difficult to manage or keep clear. Bath oils, salts and lotions should not be used unless specifically formulated for use in spas and hot tubs as they can lead to cloudy water.
