Existing chemical spas & hot tubs
The majority of our customers are transitioning from harsher chemicals to ahhNatural. Most own a hardshell freestanding spa from many brands such as HotSprings, Cal Spa, SunDance, Bullfrog and more. Our 3-step process allows you to detox (flush out) the old chemicals and build up (bio-film) using your existing water. See our start up page for full instructions. Or shop our product bundles and get exactly what you need for a smooth transition.
We have many soft tub customers. Most soft tub customers use spa perfect once a month which helps the body oils break down that tend to collect on the liner. ahhNatural will not hurt the fabric and works great in the medium and large sizes. The smaller one will require support products. Smaller soft tubs are harder to maintain because the volume of water to body contaminates is super high. If you own the small size, please be aware that ahh will work but maintenace will be more than the medium and large size.
PRO TIP: It’s imperative that you keep your filters clean and use your jets often to aid in filtering out the body organics. Get in the habit of letting the jets run when you exit the tub and wiping the sides free of body oils regularly. Use Spa Perfect two times a month to help. The nature of the fabric collects oils and organics – the slippery feel is part of owning a soft tub. Avoid lotions, potions and detergents from entering the tub.
Wooden spas & hot tubs
We have lots of customers that use ahhNatural in their wooden hot tubs and believe ahhNatural is the perfect pair for wooden tubs. Some have circulation some don’t. Everyone loves that the ahhNatural bag extends the life of their water significantly.
PRO TIP: If your tub is new, wait to install ahhNatural until the tannins have settled down.
Salt water spas & hot tubs
Depending on the brand you may be able to bypass the salt generator. Call the manufacture to find out how. Salt generators create chlorine to sanitize the water and are not needed when using ahhNatural.
PRO TIP: It’s imperative that you keep your filters clean and use your jets often to aid in filtering out the body organics. Get in the habit of letting the jets run when you exit the tub. Use Spa Perfect once a month. Build in occasional days off from bathing for quicker recovery of water and easy maintenance. Avoid lotions potions and detergents from entering the tub.
New spas & hot tubs
Believe it or not, NEW hot tubs are not sterile or pristine. Manufactures water test every spa before it leaves the factory. It is well known in the industry that they reuse test water over and over which often is contaminated. The tubs are dried but sit in dark hot warehouses and transport trucks that create an opportunity for pesky things to bloom. Eliminate a bumpy, frustrating start-up by choosing one of our start up bundles.
New to you used spas & hot tubs
Lots of customers buy used tubs. The trick is to blow out all the pipes clean from old chemicals and build up even if you buy it from a dealer. Customers are often frustrated by bouts of cloudy water or chronic issues no fault of their own.ahh-some detox gel assures that your tub gets back to its pristine self and you don’t inherit old ICK. If the cover is old or new you must deep clean it to stop off-gassing and old chemical drip.
PRO TIP: Some customers have bought used tubs and inherited tough chronic water problems (white water mold, tissue algae). This will become evident in the first 2-4 months and may require shock treatments and microdoses of ahh-some gel. In serious cases repeating the detox step will be required.
Small spas & hot tubs 250 gallons or less (2-3 person tub)
Since the volume of water (low) and the body contaminate ratio is very high, small tubs require a bit more care. We recommend using Spa perfect once a month to help break down the organics that our bodies naturally produce. We also recommend a non-chlorine shock once a month.
PRO TIP: You must keep your filters clean and use your jets often to aid in filtering out the body organics. Get in the habit of letting the jets run when you exit the tub. Use Spa Perfect once a month. Build-in occasional days off from bathing for quicker recovery of water and easy maintenance. Avoid lotions potions and detergents from entering the tub.
Large spas & hot tubs - vacation rentals 500 gallons or more or tubs with unpredictable bather loads and behavior. ahhNATURAL can be great but to keep you safe you nedd extra minerals. We put a bundel together for you that will double the protection and usually last up to 2 years.
Stainless steel spa & hot tubs
These tubs are becoming popular for residential use and are compatible with ahhNatural. ON boats and yatchs ahhNatural is a perfect match because it is compatible with sea water and works in both hot and cold water.
ahhNATURAL is NOT designed for commercial spas & hot tubs
The contaminate ratios are too high and unpredictable in high use public hot tubs. There's are also state and local health regulations that require use of chemicals in commercial or public spas & hot tubs – for good reason. It would be inappropriate to use ahhNATURAL in these settings.
