Red, dry, and itchy skin

"To be forewarned is to be forearmed"

Throughout the research and development phase of Clarion Spa's eco-friendly '3 step' hot tub chemicals, extensive research was conducted into creating high quality, effective, value for money and hassle free water care products, but most importantly SAFE chemicals for you and your family! Although ClarionSpa has 20 years experience in the water care industry we are continuously learning and evolving our products to meet the needs of our customers.

This article is certainly not intended to 'scare-monger', moreover to ensure that you, the consumer, are aware of the effects of the chemicals which may be present in your usual hot tub chemical brand. It's so easy to keep purchasing the same old thing without realising a. what you are actually buying, and b. that there are innovative alternatives out there. Now you can make an informed decision and purchase confidently.

Okay so lets start with ' Chlorine' and its derivatives ' Dichlor' and ' Trichlor'  (please do double check the ingredients of your usual brand as manufacturers will try to pull the wool over your eyes by listing them as something you will not easily identify). Skin is the largest organ in the human body, and whilst it is technically waterproof, the skin can absorb contaminants from the water as heat opens your pores. If you notice dry and flaky skin after you have relaxed in your hot tub then these chemicals may be the culprit. Chlorine strips the skin of its natural oils and causes it to dry and crack, which can also cause premature wrinkles. If you have sensitive skin or allergies you may also develop an itchy skin rash, sinus / breathing problems or sore red eyes. If you have colour-treated hair, particularly you blondes, you need to take extra care as these chemicals may cause hair dryness and, worst case scenario, breakages or the dreaded 'green tinge'.  

Those are some of the effects on your hair and skin, but don't forget ' Chlorine' is also not great for your swimwear. It causes the fabric to shred, the colour to fade and the elasticity to break down. It can also corrode your expensive hot tub's operating system, discolour the shell, and can make the plastic parts brittle. You do NOT  need harsh chemicals to achieve effective water care or cleaning results.

Moving onto ' Bromine'; whilst not quite as odouress as the chemicals mentioned above it can still cause all the same effects.  It is  often a more expensive ingredient within your hot tub chemicals, however showering off the residue of bromine from your skin and hair is certainly not as easy as trying to wash away chlorine and even that can be difficult enough!

Then you are probably using pH balancers, pH reducers etc etc so that you are essentially relaxing in a hot chemical cocktail... eugh!  You do NOT need multiple products to achieve effective results (plus all your wasted time, effort and money).

All of this, and don't even get us started on the negative effects of all these chemicals on the environment when you purge and drain your hot tub!  For more information about  'Cleaning and Maintaining your Hot Tub'  please refer to our guide   http://www.ebay.co.uk/gds/Cleaning-and-Maintaining-your-Hot-Tub-/10000000202403388/g.html

Weekly Water Care

By simply sprinkling the contents of one easy-rip Clarion Spa Active Silver Oxygen pouch into your hot tub water once a week you can ensure maximum water sanitation and avoid potential health problems for you and your family. That's it!  ONE product... NO measuring... NO spillages... NO pH test strips... NO pH balancers. Amongst other benefits, Clarion Spa's Active Silver Oxygen incorporates balancing buffers to do that job for you for normal everyday use. Obviously if you do accidentally spill a drink etc in your hot tub you will negatively effect the pH balance and you may wish to test and balance the water accordingly, however this will all be done for you when you use next week's Active Silver Oxygen pouch. As the name suggests, Clarion Spa Active Silver Oxygen harnesses the effective gentle cleaning power of oxygen and silver.  It does NOT contain chlorine, diclor, triclor or bromine, which can cause a variety of harmful effects for both you and your hot tub.

Quarterly Purge and Drain

By popping Clarion Spa's environmentally friendly EcoPurge Power Puck into the hot tub skimmer basket or floating dispenser both initially and then quarterly (every 3 months) you ensure the elimination of scale, rust and bio-film deposits on your hot tub pipe work and the mechanical parts of the operating system.  Unlike most purge and drain products on the market you can rest assured that EcoPurge Power Puck is not just an inadequate degreaser, it is a 2-in-1 degreaser AND oxidisation designed for a thorough inside and out deeper clean treatment.

Water Refill and Top Up

Now you need to reduce your household water source hardness and it's nitrogenous materials and impurities such as chlorine, fluoride and trace metals e.g. copper, iron, mercury and zinc. This will help to eliminate scale formation and prolong the lifespan of your hot tub operating system. By effortlessly attaching Clarion Spa's Mineral Ball Water Filter to your garden hose with the free adapter when you refill and top up your hot tub water, you can combat this problem throughout the year.  Clarion Spa's Mineral Ball Filter uses environmentally friendly biodegradable 'Activated Ceramic' as it's purifying media as opposed to un-environmentally friendly 'Activated Carbon'. This activated ceramic media is penetrated with inorganic minerals.  Not only is this beneficial for the continuous maintenance of safe and clear water in your spa or hot tub, but it also benefits you the bather. These active ingredients are absorbed into your body, re-energising you and replacing vitamins and minerals that your body loses whilst relaxing in warm water conditions.
