Replace the filters with new or PROPERLY cleaned filters (using a product such as Spa Marvel Filter Cleaner). As a rule of thumb, the spa industry recommends replacing cartridge filters after 1 year of use. If you currently have a brand new filter, it does not require cleaning prior to using Spa Marvel.
Refill the spa with fresh water. If your source water is high in minerals, calcium, lime and other contaminants you should consider filtering it with a proven water filter such as the Spa Marvel approved X10 Water Filter, available through your Spa Marvel retailerBefore adding water to the spa, allow water to run through the hose for 5 minutes to flush out mould and mildew that may have developed in the hose.
Heat spa water to desired temperature. Add one full bottle of Spa Marvel Water Treatment to all tubs up to 500 gallons (2000 litres). Even in smaller tubs, use 1 full bottle as your bather-load per volume of water is usually equal to, if not greater than the larger tubs. (In a brand new spa, add one third of a bottle, the second third in 30 days, and the last third in another 30 days.) Occasionally when the Spa Marvel is added it can be seen as white strands suspended in the water. This is normal and the Spa Marvel will go into solution once it has had a chance to circulate.
Balance alkalinity (80-120) and then pH (7.2-8.2) if necessary using traditional spa-water balancing products available from your professional spa retailer. The acceptable range for pH when using Spa Marvel is much broader than when using traditional spa care products, so please take care to read your testing devices properly, keeping in mind that they are calibrated to show the “OK” range when using traditional chemicals, not Spa Marvel.
Traditional spa treatment products work best at specific water-hardness levels. Spa Marvel will work at any hardness level, and given the choice Spa Marvel prefers softer water over harder water, but it is not a requirement. If your source water is so soft that it is corrosive and damages your heater and seals, then please adjust the hardness using calcium hardness increaser as per your professional spa store’s guidelines.
For best results we strongly recommend adding 1 tablespoon (15 grams, or 1 puck/tablet) of chlorine, bromine or lithium to your spa water on start up and once a week thereafter, whenever you are available to do so. For example, if your tub is at a vacation home, add the chlorine weekly, again before you leave and again on your return, even if it is weeks or months before you return to use the spa. This is such a small amount of chlorine that you won’t notice its presence and it won’t cause rashes, irritations, odours or damage bathing suits.
Allow spa water to circulate/filter a minimum of 6 hours per day, and even longer if possible.
If you have a Softub brand hot tub, or another type of low-circulating/filtering spa that will not circulate 6 hours a day then you may experience cloudy/hazy water. If this occurs add 1 tablespoon (15 grams, or 1 puck/tablet) of chlorine, bromine or lithium every 3 days to compensate for the lack of circulation. The manufacturer of Softub brand spas recommends that granular chlorine be used in Softub brand spas.
