Kuben.se sells O-care eco friendly which in many ways is the perfect solution for Spabad. Box for 3-5 months. Never been easier to manage the water chemistry.
By using O-Care, you can reduce the amount of Chlorine or Bromine by up to 78%. Chemicals can irritate eyes, ears and skin. So O-Care is especially safe for children who love to dive underwater.
The mix of high-quality minerals and salts will leave your skin feeling soft and odorless. You won't have to take a shower after bathing in your spa, which is very important when using only chemicals like chlorine or bromine.
Simply add the 2 components to your spa's water once a week using the supplied measure. Your O-Care pack will last 3 to 5 months (depending on the size of your spa).
There are two fundamental elements to the chemistry of a spa, which are:
- Water balance
If you do not balance your water, disinfection will not work, so chlorine or bromine alone is not enough. By balancing your water, it will also stay clean longer and prevent the water from becoming aggressive, giving your spa a longer life.
There are several factors that determine water quality. Things like organisms, copper, sulphites, water temperature and rainwater completely change your spa water. It's usually the least likely small factors that change your water the most.
The most important factors for good water are:
- pH (water acidity)
- Total alkalinity
- Calcium hardness
The values and chemicals you adjust (pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness) have the biggest impact on your spa water.
Chlorine and bromine are the most common products for disinfection. To effectively disinfect your spa, you need the right pH level in your water. Chlorine is effective between pH 5.5 - 7.8 but it is better to keep your pH level between 7.2 - 7.8 because if the pH level is lower than 7.2, the chlorine will burn faster and become more aggressive. If the pH level is higher than 7.8, the chlorine becomes inactive and will not be able to purify your water.
You need 10 times more chlorine in the water at pH 8.2 compared to pH 7.2.
