  • A mineral that increases total hardness in hot tub water
  • Prevents surface and equipment corrosion
  • If total hardness is too low you will discover heater problems

Why

  • Raises Calcium Hardness (CH)
  • Use when CH is less than 100 ppm to return to effective range of 100 – 200 ppm
  • Low CH causes;
    • Etching of plaster, grout
    • Increased overall corrosion of surfaces - staining
    • Increased risk of problems and major repair costs
  • Highest grade mineral available
    • Clean, granular, ‘prill’ form
    • Dissolves quickly and fully – even in hot water
    • Lowest impurity level available
    • Alkaline – pH 8 - 9 in solution

When

  • Apply when needed to maintain CH between 100 – 200 ppm
  • Always test with fresh fill and monthly thereafter

How Much

  • To raise CH:

o  10 g per 1,000 L raises CH 10 ppm

  • 1 capful = 10 grams (approx.)

How

  • Always adjust CH after TA and pH
  • Operate pump with air off
  • Divide total amount of Balance TH+ into 3 equal applications
  • Apply 1 application every 3 hours by sprinkling slowly over water surface – do not predissolve
  • Circulate for 1 – 2 hours

What is Calcium Hardness?

What is CH

  • The measure of dissolved calcium present in the water
  • Total Hardness is the measure of calcium and magnesium
  • Proper hot tub range: 100 – 200 ppm
  • If low, raise with Balance TH+
  • If high, control with Stain & Scale 1 and 2
  • Balance initially at fresh fill
  • Check monthly and adjust/treat as needed

 

Why Is It Important

  • In hot tub water, a balanced calcium hardness does the following:
    • Helps protect surfaces from corrosion, staining
    • Helps protect surfaces from scale formation
    • Helps provide clearer water
    • Fewer problems / easier maintenance

Why Does CH Change

  • Top up water can raise or lower CH
  • Otherwise, it shouldn’t shift much once balanced
  • Product additions don’t generally have an effect on CH

Problems Associated with CH

  • When low – soft water
    • Etched plaster, grout
    • Increased corrosiveness
    • Possible staining
  • When high – scale forming
    • Scale forms more readily

Heater, therapy jets

Remove with Stain & Scale 1

Prevent with Stain & Scale 2

  • Cloudy water
  • Hard water stains
