Is It Necessary To Use Chemicals In A Hot Tub?

by Liz Seyi Digital marketing manager

The spring and summer of 2021 will mean many things to many people – not least, hopefully, the start of a lasting return to many of the freedoms we have missed since the coronavirus crisis began. Another thing it is likely to mean for many readers of this blog, is “hot tub season”. 

That, however, raises an important question: with so many swimming pool chemicals available in stores like ours to ensure the comfort and safety of pool water, does a hot tub need to be cleaned with such chemicals as well? And does this requirement even apply to “self-cleaning” hot tubs? 

First of all… yes, all hot tubs need chemicals! 

Before we go any further, let’s address that term: “self-cleaning”. Hot tubs of this type are becoming more popular, in an age in which many of us are looking to boost day-to-day convenience and minimise the amount of swimming pool chemicals we have to buy and use. 

However, the fact remains that even “self-cleaning” hot tubs still need to be carefully maintained, with the help of the right chemicals. And in any case, all hot tubs can technically be regarded as “self-cleaning”, given that they all incorporate filtration and circulation systems. 

While – depending on the specific model you choose – a “self-cleaning” hot tub may give you a little less to think about as far as chemicals and maintenance are concerned, both will still be needed. And you should be using chemicals, anyway, if you truly care about keeping the water in your hot tub safe, pleasant to the skin, and crystal clear. 

So, what chemicals can we offer for your hot tub? 

Here at Pool Warehouse, we are a go-to source of high-quality and well-priced hot tub and small swimming pool chemicals, encompassing every essential product from bromine and chlorine to clarifierpH MinuspH PlusNo-Foam, and so many more. 

Chlorine and bromine, for instance, are the two key sanitisers for hot tubs. Fortunately, it’s easy to check the levels of them in your hot tub or small pool with the testing strips we also offer in our store. 

Whether you use chlorine or bromine is really down to personal preference; while chlorine is the more “traditional” and slightly cheaper choice for killing the bugs that can so easily accumulate in a pool or hot tub, bromine is especially effective at high temperatures. It also doesn’t give off the potentially irritating gases that chlorine does. 

But there are also such crucial matters to consider in the maintenance of your hot tub as pH levels and calcium hardness. Again, we have swimming pool chemicals to deal with all of these priorities available at excellent prices. 

The pH level in your hot tub, for example, really ought to be between about 7.2 and 7.6. Straying outside of this renders the water either too acidic or too alkaline, which can result in problems like skin irritation. Similarly, your hot tub water should always have an optimum level of calcium, in order to avoid possible issues like corrosion or cloudy water. 

Never look elsewhere for dependable swimming pool chemicals

In a nutshell, then, yes, you will definitely need the appropriate chemicals for your hot tub – this spring and summer, and every spring and summer – as part of a responsible maintenance regime.

After all, the better you take care of your hot tub or small pool, the many more summers you can expect it to last without too many unwanted or unexpected problems.

Purchase from the broad range of swimming pool chemicals on offer at Pool Warehouse today, and you’ll be well-placed to get the very best out of your hot tub use this season – and beyond.
