Spa & Hot tub Care, Tips, Information

AquaFinesse initial start up or conversion instructions.

AquaFinesse Spa kit - largeConverting or starting your spa or hot tub is easy to do. In fact some of our customers say that AquaFinesse is so easy that they have to "unlearn" all that they used to do!

The unique patented formulae of Aqua Finesse� works to eliminate accumulated dirt, biofilm & scale build-up in your spa's or hot tub's plumbing lines, filter & heater (read about Bio films here). 

It's completely compatible with ionizing or ozone systems. 

Great alternative to regular chlorine or bromine systems.

Follow these steps for best results: 

  1. Two days before changing the water in the spa, add 1 AquaFinesse SpaClean Puck into the spa (floater, filter area, skimmer, etc).  The water will become VERY cloudy as the SpaClean Puck removes the biofilm build-up throughout the spa & its plumbing system.
  2. Thoroughly rinse & clean the filter cartridge. AquaFinesse Filter Cleaning Tablets will effectively clean filter cartridge of removed bio-film and other waste. If the filter cartridge is older than 1 year, consider starting with a new one.
  3. Drain hot tub completely. Run garden hose for 60 seconds before filling the tub with fresh tap water. (This is to help flush out any biofilm in the garden hose.) Using a tap-water pre-filter dramatically removes unwanted heavy metals metals and other impurities getting you off to a cleaner start.
  4. Shake the bottle of AquaFinesse to mix the solution. Pour the correct amount of AquaFinesse (as indicated on the bottle) into the water. Use the enclosed measuring cup. Do NOT overdose. Spa owners who live in High Water Hardness or High Calcium Hardness areas need to follow these special instructions.
  5. Turn on jets for a minimum of 2 minutes to activate the AquaFinesse� water care system.
  6. Maintain pH for the first 3 days at a level of 7.0 - 7.2. After that the pH will normally return to an acceptable level of 7.4 - 7.6. This will help prevent a "high pH drift" to over 8.0 which can lead to foaming.
  7. Place (1) sanitizing tablet in the slow-release dispenser, close cap, fill with water and place on top of filter (or in basket). If you do not use the dispenser, the tablet will dissolve much faster & put "too much" chlorine into the spa.

    OR use 1 tablespoon SpaBoss Chlor Aid Di-Chlor granular chlorine per 400 gallons. Chlorine granules should be used as needed (maintaining a FAC - free available chlorine - level of about 1.0 ppm).

    Check dispenser every week to make sure tablets are still intact. For tubs with functioning ozone or silver ion systems, the use of sanitizing tablets may not be required. The Swimming Pool & Spa industry as well as health professionals recommend maintaining a Free Chlorine level of about 1.0 ppm) to maintain a sanitary environment.
  8. Repeat steps 2 and 4 on the same day every week.
  9. Clean the filter once a week to ensure total sanitation.
  10. Thoroughly clean your filter cartridge with AquaFinesse Filter Cleaner once each month.
  11. Ensure your ozone system is working properly. Perform regular maintenance of your ozone system and consult your dealer if you think it needs repair.
  12. Adjust pH & Total Alkalinity as needed (pH 7.4 - 7.6, TA 80 - 120 ppm). As long as the fill water Calcium Hardness (CH) is over 70 ppm, there is no need to adjust the CH.  AquaFinesse will buffer the water hardness.
High Water Hardness areas: When starting up with AquaFinesse on a fresh or initial fill, do not add the entire initial dose; the water will become very cloudy. Add 1/3 of the initial dose Week One. Add 2/3 dose Week Two. Add the regular dose every week thereafter until the spa is ready to be purged, drained & refilled.
