Step 3 - Scale Control

If you keep the TA and pH balanced you won't need to worry about scaling unless you live in a very hard area. But, if your water is very soft, you might need to increase the hardness.

Symptoms of Low Total Hardness

  • Cloudy Water
  • Foaming Water
  • Staining may occur
  • Corrosion of pumps and heater
  • Pitting and etching on spa surfaces

Symptoms of High Total Hardness

  • Scale will form
  • Water may be cloudy
  • Skin and eye irritation may occur
  • Scum around the water line
  • Frequent filter cleaning required
