It’s ironic that we try to relax in our spa when it could be brimming with toxic cleaning products. The high water temperature coupled with heavy usage means your spa will forever require regular maintenance to keep it healthy, safe and clean.
Yet what products will you choose to keep your water free from bacteria and viruses?
The obvious place to start is a user friendly and safe sanitiser to kill bacteria. Most people rush into a pool shop and automatically head straight for chlorine, yet they don’t consider the drawbacks like skin and eye irritations plus the bad smell.
Lithium Hypochlorite is also popular however a simple feeder has yet to be invented, meaning you need to manually administer it each and every day.
These days people hold Bromine in high regard as a sanitiser, because it is slow dissolving and ideal for warmer water. It also doesn’t produce any of the unpleasant side effects normally associated with chlorine.
However as we become more educated, many are starting to choose non-chlorine and non-bromine solutions for their spas.
Lo-Chlor Chemicals, has developed The AquaSpa® Range, an innovative new range that treats spas effectively; its Sanitiser is gentle on the skin, the hair and clothing and also your spa and equipment. It’s specially formulated to control the growth of bacteria and diseases.
Free of chlorine and bromine, it doesn’t smell nor sting the eyes, and best of all, you won’t breathe in chemical fumes as you may with other sanitisers. What’s more, weekly doses make it both easy and economical to administer.
As you can see, great, healthy advances are being made in spa treatments. As Lo-Chlor and other companies will testify, a spa is meant to be a gentle, relaxing therapeutic experience so why use a product that produces anything less.
