Using chemicals with your Lay-Z-Spa
At first, the use of chemicals with your Lay-Z-Spa may seem something of an inconvenience. However, with the chemicals available from godfrey-diy.co.uk it is a very quick and simple process to keep your spa hygienic. At Godfrey-diy.co.uk we sell the chemicals you require individually, and also as a starter kit. The following article describes how each of these is used.
Testing the WaterThe first step in treating your spa water is to carry out a water test. Take a Clearwater Test Strip and insert in the water, whirl around 3 times and remove it immediately. As soon as you take the strip out of the water the three coloured indicators will immediately show the results pf three tests: the chlorine levels, pH level, and overall alkalinity. You can match the coloured indicators with the supplied chart so that you can see whether each of the three test results is within the permitted levels.
Increasing the chlorine contentSimply sprinkle chlorine granules into the pool according to the instructions. The instructions for dispensing chlorine in proportion to 1000 litres of water. When correctly filled the Lay-Z-Spa contains about this amount of water (its actually 970 litres and therefore close enough), and so it is very easy to work out the correct dose. Please bear in mind that after adding chlorine you must not bathe in the pool for several hours. It is recommended that you r treat the water with chlorine at the evening or end of the day when no one will is likely to use the spa. If you have just filled the spa and the water has not yet been treated at all please refer to instructions for ‘shock dosing’ below.
Adjusting the pH LevelsAnother indicator on the test strip refers to the pH levels of the spa. Again, by matching this indicator to the chart you will be able to easily ascertain how much pH Plus, or pH Minus to add.
Controlling FoamFoam inevitably builds up in a spa after it has been used for a while. The main cause of this is cosmetic products on our bodies, and is easily controlled by pouring ‘Foam remover’ in to the spa whilst the pump is running.
