The EZ SPA® program can be used with EZ SPA® BOOST which is a chlorine-based sanitizer. You do not need to use EZ SPA® with Oxy Brite. If it smells like chlorine, there’s a chance that too much chlorine was added to your spa. I’ve included our EZ SPA® Start-up Program below.
IMPORTANT: Circulate the spa water with the jets on whenever adding chemicals to the water. For best results, circulate and filter the water at least 8 hours each day. Always start with fresh water (drain and refill) and a clean filter when converting to EZ SPA®.
1) Add EZ SPA® START to remove metals, phosphates, scaling carbonates and organic debris.
2) Balance your spa water by using EZ SPA® UP and EZ SPA® DOWN to adjust total alkalinity and pH and EZ SPA® CAL to adjust calcium hardness.
Total Alkalinity 80-120 ppm
Calcium Hardness 300-400 ppm
will help manage water balance but we do suggest testing weekly (always test before adding EZ SPA®
). When adding chemicals, allow sufficient time for the water to circulate (at least 10 minutes) before testing again.
3) Add EZ SPA®
BOOST- Initiate startup with 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) per 200 gallons. Weekly thereafter, add a 1/2 ounce per 400 gallons, slightly more for heavy bather use, to maintain proper sanitizer levels
4) Add EZ SPA®
– Initially, and once-a-week thereafter, add 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) per 100 gallons. For spas using ozone or mineral purifiers, add just 1/2 ounce per 100 gallons. It is not unusual for pH to drop slightly after adding EZ SPA®
. The buffers in EZ SPA®
will typically adjust and raise pH levels within 24-48 hours.
5) After 12 hours, rinse the filter cartridge. Then rinse once-a-week to maintain water quality. It is not necessary to chemically clean or soak your cartridge when using EZ SPA®
