Others work to keep the tub itself clean and functioning properly. Spa owners need to become familiar with many different chemicals, their purpose and how to use them.

Requisite hot tub chemicals include:
• Sanitizers- Disinfect and purify spa water.
• Shock- Breaks down oils and organic matter
• Balancing Chemicals- Adjust and maintain pH and TA levels.
• Clarifiers- Achieve crystal clear spa water.
• Metal Reducers- Defend the hot tub from scale deposits and stains.
