How to Get Rid of Algae, Mold, and Mildew in Your Hot Tub

Do own a hot tub? Spa maintenance is relatively easy and successful when you follow a simple schedule for regular ongoing maintenance.

If you keep your hot tub clean and maintained, algae, mold, and mildew don’t usually grow. But, what happens if you end up with these issues or a musty, moldy odor when soaking?

If something is growing in your hot tub, it’s important to figure out what caused it, how to get rid of it, and how to prevent it from returning.

Let’s look at how to get rid of algae, mold, and mildew in your hot tub. (more…)

Troubleshoot Your Hot Tub Heater

There is nothing worse than stepping into a hot tub that isn’t hot. Whether your water is room temperature or just lukewarm, it just isn’t the same experience when you compare it to the nice hot soak in a tub in proper working order.

In this article, we’re going to learn how to troubleshoot your hot tub heater. (more…)

Is Your Ozonator Working?

Is your ozonator working?

Is your spa water clean and clear? You probably see bubbles, right? And your on light is glowing, right? You probably assume your hot tub is working correctly. But that isn’t necessarily true.

All the bubbles and on light really tell you is that your Ozonator is on, not that it’s producing adequate levels of ozone. Your Ozonator must be working to produce enough ozone to keep your hot tub clear and free of bacteria, molds and unwanted minerals.

We are going to answer the question, “Is your ozonator working?” But, first let’s define ozone.

What is Ozone?

Ozone is a gas (like the ozone layer around the earth) that is produced by ultraviolet light exposure to oxygen. When ozone gas is injected into spa water, it acts as a very powerful sanitizer and kills off almost all of the bacteria present. Ozonated spa water remains clearer longer than just using bromine or chlorine as the primary sanitizer.

Here are some things to watch for when trying to decide if you need a new Ozonator:

1. Does your water look and feel fresh, clear and clean? Is it difficult to balance your water chemistry?

Your water should be clear and odorless. Anything less than this can indicate one or more of the following:

  • Your Ozonator has expired and needs replacing
  • heck valve failed and ozone is not getting into the water
  • Ozonator isn’t producing enough ozone to properly sanitize spa water
  • Injector may be clogged or needs to be upgraded

2. Does your water smell?

Are you continually increasing the amount of chemicals you use to treat your water to improve water quality? Does your spa water smell like a footlocker? If so, you might have bacteria and/or viruses building up.

This is an indicator you have no ozone generator, or that the existing Ozonator has expired.  Two hundred times more powerful than chlorine, ozone kills 99.99% of all known viruses and bacteria leaving your water safe and clear.
If your ozone system is working properly, your water should smell fresh and clean and not like chemicals.

3. How old is your Ozonator?

The average lifespan of an Ozone Generator is three years.  If your Ozonator is older than three years, you’ve probably exceeded its effectiveness date. Most people don’t know what style of ozone generator they have, so please check with our service department for advice.
