Should You Use Enzymes In Your Hot Tub?
The biggest enemies of hot tub water quality come from our bodies. Oils and grease from our bodies get introduced into the water when we enjoy a nice soak and, over time, they accumulate in the water, in the filters and even coat the hot tub shell.
In the past, the only way to remove these contaminants was by draining and cleaning the hot tub and then refilling it, using a hearty dose of chlorine or bromine to sanitise the water. All very time-consuming, hard-work and not in the least bit environmentally friendly.
Now, more and more consumers are looking to reduce their exposure to chlorine or bromine and, at the same time, make looking after their hot tub easier and more environmentally friendly.
Enzymes are natural compounds that target grease and oil to break them down before they accumulate in your hot tub, the right enzymes can also kill many bacteria. Consequently enzymes act both as a natural sanitiser in your hot tub (just like chlorine or bromine) and as a water cleaner and clarifier.
So, enzymes reduce your need for chlorine or bromine down to a miminal level, they reduce your need to shock the water and, if used properly, they will virtually eliminate the need for a water clarifier or anti-foam.
Can Enzymes Be Used Alone?
No, unfortunately whilst enzymes do a great job on oil and grease, they are not as effective against all types of bacteria found in hot tubs. So, just use them alongside a low level of bromine or chlorine and all will be well.
