    Have you been using your hot tub a lot? Rashes and skin irritations can become prevalent as your sanitizer fails to keep up with your usage.

    Inadequate sanitation can lead to rashes, typically on soft areas of the body such as behind the knees, under the arms, and on the belly. This is possibly the result of a bacterial infection. When you don’t properly sanitize your hot tub, it can lead to excess bacteria. When you get into your 101 degree hot tub, your pores open and bacteria has a prime environment to enter. Once you exit the hot tub, your pores close and the bacteria is trapped in your skin. This kind of scenario can lead to something called hot tub folliculitus, which is an infection of the hair follicle. This type of infection appears as a red rash.

    Another reason you may develop a rash is if your skin is sensitive to the chemicals used in your hot tub. In this case, you may have a skin sensitivity. In this case,  Thermospas’ unique  system ThermoClear is the answer. Using this sanitizer drastically reduces the level of chlorine levels in your hot tub. It’s also safer for children.

    Lastly, if you having these types of issues, we highly suggest an Ozonator if you don’t already have one. An Ozonator offers extra assurance that your hot tub is well contiunually well sanitized. Having an Ozonator will relieve most of the issues mentioned above since it will reduce the amount of chemicals being added to the water, thus making water chemistry easier and also reducing chemical reactions. Remember that your Ozonator should be replaced every 3 years.

    This may seem like a lot of information, but eventually you will get a feel for what kind of sanitizer you need based on your usage and personal sensitivities.
