1.10.4 Stabilize Spa Water


Before balancing the spa water, it is recommended that the water temperature reach a minimum of 85degrees F (29°C).

Note: Do not be tempted to use your spa at this time.

Step to Stabilize Spa Water

Once the spa has been filled with water, powered up and filtration requirements set, place the insulated cover on the spa and allow the water temperature to stabilize (approximately 16 hours). Make sure you secure the cover in place using the cover locks. Periodically check the spa water temperature. When the water temperature climbs above 85°F, (29°C) proceed to the next step.

Note: As heat impacts both Calcium and Total Alkalinity a little, it is highly recommended to heat the water above 29°C (85°F) before advancing to Establishing Correct Water Chemistry.
