Your Guide to the FreshWater Salt System

Your guide to the FreshWater Salt System

As much as hot tub owners love their backyard spa refuge, everyone would probably be on board to spend less time working on keeping the water clean and sparkling. Our time is a valuable commodity, and we’d love to spend less of it fussing with the quality of water in our hot tubs. Who wouldn’t love an easy and effective way to keep their hot tub water sparkling clean with a minimum amount of work?

You may have heard of saltwater care systems and how they provide great hot tub water care without harsh chemicals. Are you wondering if a salt system could be right for you? With the guide to the FreshWater® Salt System, here’s what it is and how you could benefit. 

Physical Benefits of the FreshWater Salt System

Users rave about the softer more buoyant feel of the water with a FreshWater Salt System. No more irritated eyes or itchy skin, and it is even gentler on your hair. It is a far superior system to chlorine, and trust us, you will not miss its harsh smell. Your entire spa experience will be vastly improved.

Ease of Maintenance With the FreshWater Salt System

How easy is it to use? The FreshWater Salt System is straightforward to operate and will save you a lot of time over a traditional chlorine sanitizing system. As a matter of fact, all you have to do is insert a titanium cartridge into the hot tub. This cartridge and a bit of added salt efficiently sanitize your spa water. And the best news? You only need to insert a new cartridge every few months. Three cartridges can last an entire year. 

You do need to use test strips to test the water every 10 days or so and adjust your chemicals as needed. Your water will stay cleaner longer and use fewer chemicals. When the system is properly used, you will only need to drain and refill your hot tub once a year, rather than every four months as with other spas.

The purpose of a hot tub is to provide you with a relaxing retreat where you can recharge your mind and body. Your guide to the FreshWater Salt System shows that you can enjoy all the benefits of hot tub ownership without spending hours of your time on maintenance and juggling harsh chemicals.
