Just wondering if anyone has used either of these products and what they
think of it.
or PH Magic
I have a spa with an ionizer and am looking for a better/simpler way of
keeping water chemistry inline. My water clarity fluctuates because I'm not
on top of it all the time like I probably should be. Would this product
help? I'm open to any suggestions.
I haven't looked into the specifics of these products, but I'm
guessing they're basically just buffers. If so, yes, they are very
useful (if not 'critical') for maintaining a constant pH; I wouldn't
fill a spa without using one. Chemically, a buffer is pretty simple,
so I wouldn't pay a lot of money for one, they're probably all the
same - get the cheapest available.
Do you have an Ionizer or an ozonator? I have an ozonator, but don't know what
an ionizer is...
The ozonator kills bacteria and other nasties, much like chlorine or bromine.
However, since there are a few nasties that are relatively unaffected by ozone,
you still have to use chlorine or bromine occasionally.
If your pH is unstable, you need to stabilize it by setting up the proper
hardness and total alkalinity up front, before messing with pH up/down additives
(bases/acids). The pH should NOT change much over the short term -- only when
you add a significant amount of new water.
Your spa dealer should be able to tell you what is required up front for your
spa and your local municipal water system. If you are on a well or private
system, you may have to submit a water sample for analysis first.
