Balancers - Balance your spa water
Establishing and maintaining the correct water balance is important for a number of reasons:
- Chemical efficiency
- Bather comfort
- Water quality and appearance
- Makes it easier and less time consuming to look after the spa
- pH -The pH scale of 0-14 measures how acidic or alkali conditions are respectively. The middle reading of 7 is neutral, so spa water with a pH below 7 is acidic and spa water with a pH above 7 is alkaline. For spa users the ideal pH level is slightly alkaline between 7.2– 7.6, ensuring bather comfort are maintained (the pH level of the eye is consistent with this level).
- Total Alkalinity - Total alkalinity (TA) is a measurement of the waters ability to resist pH change. If total alkalinity is low then it can make the pH fluctuate, making it difficult to control and mantain at the ideal level. However if the total alkalinity is too high then the pH can be difficult to change and will keep rising. A high total alkalinity can also lead to a formation of a bicarbonate scale on spa surfaces & within the pipework. The ideal total alkalinity level should be between the range of 80- 150mg/l.
