Keeping the right balance of your spa water is necessary as balancers control scale, adjust pH and total alkalinity and correct mineral imbalances. At Spa Headquarters, we offer a wide variety of balancers to use in your spa.
You are able to balance your water by testing pH, alkaline, and calcium hardness. These elements are important as they prevent cloudy water, skin irritation, equipment corrosion, and more.
If you’d like to know more about the different spa water balancers and products Spa Headquarters offers, please give our Customer Service team a call 844-853-4235 to talk with a hot tub and spa expert!
Understanding pH and Alkalinity
pH: pH is a scale that runs from 0 to 14 and measures how acidic your spa water is. The correct pH range for spa water is 7.2 - 7.6 or just about in the middle of the pH scale. Proper pH makes the spa water feel comfortable and helps protect equipment and surfaces from damage. If the pH is too high, sanitizers are less effective, surfaces and equipment can scale, water may cloud, and shorter filter runs may occur.
Alkalinity: Alkalinity is a measure of the water's ability to resist changes in pH. The proper alkalinity range for spa water is 125 - 150 parts per million (ppm). Keeping the alkalinity in its proper range will prevent the pH level from moving too high or too low. If the alkalinity is too low, add Spa Essentials Alkalinity Increaser. If the alkalinity is too high use Spa Essentials pH Decreaser.
