What feels better than crystal clear water in your Thermospas hot tub? As with every gadget the hot tub user also faces problems. Here are a few tips for troubleshooting the most common hot tub problems so can have the best experience with your spa:

Cloudy water

This is caused by low chlorine levels in your hot tub. Also another major cause is the buildup of soil in the hot tub. This problem can be solved adding a water clarifier. The water clarifier when added needs to be circulated for at least 30 minutes after which the clean filter is cleaned when the water has become clear. Other solutions are you can test for the PH level or totally change the water in your tab. This should make your hot tub clearer.

Colored water

This is caused by the presence of iron or copper in the water and a high alkalinity due to a low PH level. The solution to this is testing the alkalinity and adjusting if necessary and adding of a scale remover will also aid in this problem.

Deposits of calcium

This is another major problem. It is mainly caused by hard water and cases of total alkalinity in cases of excessively low PH levels in the hot tub water. Hot tub troubleshooting is done here by cleaning the shell surface with a non-abrasive cleaner will help remove the deposits while also you can add a scale control chemical. It is very important to keep checking the PH level as this can prevent many major problems that arise.
