It’s one thing for us at Spring Dance Hot Tubs to give you hot tub care advice & a whole other thing when a customer actually using his hot tub day after day shares a tip. This post was left as a comment on a post about BaquaSpa & has some GREAT tips from an actual Baqua Spa user!
“I initially had the common problems with Baqua Spa then began to read the experiences of other users on the Internet. I found I was using way too much Baqua Spa chemistry. I began to use 1/2 the recommended amounts and my water clarified, no scum and most important, no throat irritation.
I recommend before adding any of the Baqua Spa chemistry MAKE SURE YOUR WATER IS BALANCED FOR pH AND HARDNESS. This will make a huge difference in your success with Baqua Spa.
Start out using 1/2 the recommended start up and maintenance doses and keep testing. If your test show the need for more chemistry or you have a problem such as scum or throat irritation then don’t hesitate to use more chemistry. Make sure you test after several hours or overnight before adding more chemistry because it is very easy to end up with more chemistry than you need which will cause you problems.
Too much Waterline Control I have found makes the spa milky. If this happens reduce the amount you use don’t increase it. Add only as much as needed to keep the waterline clean of scum.
Only add Sanitizer (#3) if your tests indicate it is needed. If you use more than needed you will have throat irritation. Baqua Spa Sanitizer does not deteriate like clorine which has to be added nearly after every use.
Have patience and dial in your need for adding Baqua Spa chemistry, believe me it is worth it. Crystal clear water, no scum at all and no throat irriation; you skin will feel clean when you get out and Baqua Spa will not irritate or dry out your skin.
Once I figured this out, I have been extremely happy for over 3 years of use.
Good luck and remember to balance your water when you refill before you add Baqua Spa!”
