Our philosophy is that the fewer contaminates you put bring into your hot tub the less maintenance time it will require. Constant preventative care will make your hot tub hassle free and healthy. This section will provide you with a guide of basic hot tub care.
ahhNatural is a self correcting water care product. 85% of water issues, if given a day off, clean filters and increased circulation will clear out in 24 hours. For those other times or when you want faster recovery here are some choices available to you. If you choose to do a shock test your water and when the Chlorine or MPS reads zero you can bathe chemical free again.
There are 2 major reasons to shock your spa water.
1. Remove organics that rise due to infrequent use or if you use your tub often or you have had more than 3-4 people for an extended soak. Removing these organics sooner than later is a must.
2. Killing bacteria, algae and mold. All 3 of these can hitch hike their way into your water by bather or wind and fester. If you suspect any of these to be present, you must do a shock quickly. If you smell rotting lettuce or a fish tank odor– DO NOT BATHE.
Whatever your reason for wanting to use natural or less toxic products and cleaners, chances are many exist in your pantry already. This list is for those who want to keep it simple and clean. I’ll try to explain what works as well as why so you have a deeper understanding of how and what to use when – without causing damage to the surfaces of your hot tub or spa.
For many people, relaxing and replenishing the skin by soaking in a hot therapudic bath is a good thing.
But in unfiltered bath water or a chemical-laced hot tub, your pores are wide open and can absorb whatever it's surrounded with. Your lungs are also exposed to harsh off-gassing accelerated by hot temperatures.
AHH allows you to give your skin and lungs a break without compromising water quality.
