About SilkBalance for spas and hot tubs:

My husband and I have been in the hot tub business for 32 years. Since 1982 we have carried Hot Spring Spas exclusively and have been the #1 selling Hot Spring dealer in the U.S. for many of the preceding years. We now have over 17,000 customers in the Puget Sound area who have purchased Hot Spring and other Watkins brand spas from us.

During our years in business, we have seen everything under the sun cooked up to make hot tub care “easy”. The claims for every one of these “miracles” proved to be nothing but hot air. When we heard about SilkBalance we were not only skeptical but downright disbelieving. There was no way we were going to buy and then tout your product to our customer base that believes in us and trusts our integrity. Our service tech coordinator summed it up by saying he had “seen it all” in his years in the hot tub industry and was sure it would be just as lame as all of the other products that had come along.

But human nature being what it is, we were curious. And, ever the optimist, I thought that SilkBalance just might work given the science behind it and the testing it had undergone. The real push was our company motto: “We make it easy to take it easy.” We have consistently worked to make everything easier for our customers so all they need do is relax. If SilkBalance worked, it would be a big step to making water care easier for our spa owners.

On a personal note, the air was so dry this past winter that my skin resembled craters on the moon. I didn’t use my own Hot Spring nearly as much because of the dry skin factor. Many of our customers told me the same thing. Dry skin was a bad side effect of hot tubbing in winter just when you wanted to hot tub the most!

The results? SilkBalance works. It does everything it promises: no mixing, no balancers, and no dry skin! It’s natural. The water of our own Hot Spring feels like our favorite natural hot spring in California: Tecopa. We have crystal clean water in our own spa and in the showroom spas. There’s no chlorine smell; no odor of any kind. In fact, we tell customers to take a deep breath when they walk in and smell…nothing!

It’s so easy to use and such a relief to know that you’re not bathing in a vat of chemicals. My own skin has never felt softer and been less irritated. It’s good for the planet and good for people. It saves so much time and hassle. By taking the work out of maintaining a hot tub, it’s fun again! And, we can truthfully say: “We DO make it easy to take it easy” because it’s easier and more effective than any other water care system on the market. Our customers love it! We love it! Thank you, SilkBalance.
