Six Keys To Basic Spa Care
Get in the habit of practicing some basic spa care rules everyone should observe. Preventing problems before they occur will give you more enjoyment from your sparkling clear spa – not to mention the perfect environment for relaxing with family and friends. There are 6 essential keys to spa care:

•Circulation –
Proper water circulation will help prevent ensure even distribution of products as well as promote filtration. Properly circulating SpaGuard® spa care products help keep the water inviting and ready for your soaking pleasure.
•Filtration –
Many spa issues are caused by poor filtration-when the filter is dirty or clogged, debris stays in the water. A properly cared for filter captures hair, oils and cosmetics.
•Cleaning –
Contaminants such as dirt, oil and even bacteria can accumulate at the waterline, much like a bathtub ring. Regular cleaning preserves spa surfaces and prevents unwanted build-up.
•Draining and Refilling –
Regular draining and refilling is a normal part of spa maintenance. Over time, the water absorbs and dissolves minerals, chemicals and other soluble material.
•Chemistry –
There are two primary components that affect spa water quality: sanitizer (bromine or chlorine) residual and pH. When both are within their recommended ranges, your water is comfortable, protected and clear; sanitizers and “shock products” work efficiently.
•Testing –
The chemistry of your spa water needs to be checked regularly. Use SpaGuard® products to maintain the correct levels, including: sanitizer residuals, pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness, metals, and total dissolved solids.

Robotic Cleaners

Computer-controlled cleaners that operate independently from your pump and filter system Robotic cleaners are powered by low-voltage electricity, rather than
your pool pump or a booster pump. Since your pump runs less, your energy costs are reduced. Plus, their built-in filter further reduces use of your pool’s primary filtration system lowering energy costs even more, extending the life of both your pump and filter, and increasing the amount of time between filter cleanings. Robotic cleaners are also convenient, you just plug it in and place it in your pool. Some even have remote controls so you can steer the unit from a lounge chair for easy spot cleaning!
