4 Things to Know About the Freshwater Salt System

No matter if you’re a lifelong hot tub owner or looking to purchase your first, regular hot tub care can feel overwhelming. Knowing when to balance the water, how much chemical to use, and proper methods can take time to master. So, what if we told you there is a simple, effective way to keep your spa clean with minimal work from you? Here are four things to know about the Freshwater® Salt System and why you will love having it!

1. What the Freshwater Salt System Does

The Freshwater Salt System uses cutting-edge technology to effectively clean and sanitize your hot tub water using a titanium cartridge and a little added salt. In addition to sanitizing water, the result is a more natural feeling to the water, less harsh chemicals on your skin and hair, no chemical odors, less time spent dealing with balancing water, and less wasted water. 

With a more effective and efficient cleaning system, you don’t have to drain and refill your spa multiple times a year. Instead, simply change the disposable cartridge once every four months. As a result, the Freshwater Salt System offers you big savings on fewer chemicals, less water waste, less energy spent, and less of a time commitment. 

2. How the Freshwater Salt System Works

The Freshwater Salt System is the first of its kind and has become an industry-leading system. With this unique system, the titanium cartridge is able to convert the added salt into chlorine that cleans and clears the water. You can adjust the amount of sanitation to meet your usage amount with the touch screen control panel.

The control panel will also alert you if there is a need, giving you peace of mind the water is safe to use. When it comes time to replace the disposable titanium cartridges, it can be done in just a matter of seconds and without the help of any additional tools. 

3. Where You Can Find the Freshwater Salt System 

The Freshwater Salt System is available on all Hot Spring® Spas in the Highlife® Collection and Limelight® Collection. These two Hot Spring Collections have a large selection of spas to choose from with a wide variety of sizes and features to meet your needs.

At Texas Hot Tub Company, we proudly carry the Hot Spring Highlife and Limelight Collections. To learn more about the various spas in these collections and which might be best for you, contact our team

4. How Long the Freshwater Salt System Works

What if you could get 12 months of use? You read that right! The Freshwater Salt System can keep your spa’s water clean and balanced for up to an entire year! No need for a drain and refill for 12 months. In that span of time, the disposable titanium cartridges should only need to be replaced three times (once every four months). Of course, this can vary some based on the amount of use and your water makeup. 

The purpose of a hot tub is to relax, enjoy downtime, and destress. The Freshwater Salt Systems allows you to do that to an even greater degree. Spend minimal time dealing with keeping your spa clean and balanced and more time enjoying the warm waters of your Hot Spring Spa. This makes hot tub use simple for you all while caring for our earth.
