Saltwater spas: clean water and easy maintenance

Don’t you love getting your feet wet at the beach? Before you can get close enough to view the sand and surf, you hear the breaking waves and breathe in the fresh, salty air. Splashing and playing in the seawater, with the natural buoyancy that helps you swim and float. No wonder everyone loves the beach!

Now some hot tub owners are bringing the beach home with saltwater hot tubs. But is a saltwater hot tub right for you?

Saltwater Sanitation

Because the saltwater sanitation system is designed and engineered to create a constant supply of chlorine through electrolysis, the small amount of chlorine produced is enough to keep the water free of contaminants. The Ace Salt System is ideal for those with sensitive skin, and you can enjoy a silky soft soak without drying out or irritating your eyes and skin. And don’t forget the best part – saltwater hot tubs are free of those chemical odors you may find unpleasant.

A Buoyant Soaking Experience

Since saltwater increases buoyancy, it’s not uncommon for some to find saltwater systems a more beneficial soaking experience.  According to the Arthritis Foundation, the combination of warmth and buoyancy of water helps relieve stress and joint pressure. If you’re looking for the optimal soak and relaxation, the Grandee NXT Hot Tub jet system will help loosen and relax those tight muscles from the inside out.

Maintenance Simplified

A standard hot tub requires regular water care. Monitoring of the pH levels, and ensuring the chemicals are balanced appropriately is of utmost importance. The system and schedule are pretty routine, and most hot tub owners find it easy enough to follow. However, with a saltwater system it becomes a whole lot easier!  After the initial set up, the system pretty much takes care of its self, producing clean, pure water for months.

Let’s recap if a saltwater hot tub is right for you …

  • Water is sparkly clean without a chemical odor.
  • Because you use fewer products, you’ll be more hands-free with less pouring and measuring.
  • Less harsh chemicals, therefore, gentler on the skin and eyes.
  • Saltwater adds to the buoyancy effect.
