Hot Tub Water Care: Never Use Clorox in Your Hot Tub!
See this photo of a bottle of Clorox? One of our Valet Team members found a bottle of it at a hot tub owner’s home. Said hot tub owner was using it to sanitize his hot tub because he thought it was better than dry chlorine.
While we’re not the “hot tub police”, we will speak out when we see something that’s just plain WRONG!
Using Clorox as a sanitizer is so wrong.
Once chlorine is in solution (like Clorox) it has almost zero disinfecting capabilities. Bleaching is all it’s good for. Use it on your sheets & towels. I do. It works great. But, you add chlorine to your hot tub water to disinfect it; to kill bacteria. Clorox will not disinfect your hot tub water, has the wrong pH and will give you very dry skin if you do use it.
If you’re all tied up in knots and can’t get your water chemistry right and your hot tub does not have clean, clear water with NO SMELL, send us an email or check out our e-store. We sell only products that are right for hot tubs and spas like SilkBalance natural water care!
Need a water care lesson at tubside? We’re happy to do that or drain, clean and maintain it for you. Our Valet team gets rave reviews. Call the Service Center 206 431-2876 to schedule valet service in select locations in the Puget Sound area.
