How to choose the water care program for you?

When weighing the opportunity of adding a hot tub to the home, one of the questions that comes up most often is “how hard is it to take care of?”

Knowing the chemistry of hot tub maintenance can seem daunting, but it’s really straight forward once you settle on the Water Care Program that best suits your needs and interests.

Now you might be asking yourself, “really, there’s more than one program I have to consider??”

At Beachcomber, we offer a number of different options in order to match every user’s individual needs and priorities. You don’t need a Masters Degree in Chemistry to master any of the programs, and below are a few of the pros and cons of each you might want to consider when it comes to maintaining clean and healthy water in your hot tub.

Beachcomber Hot Tub Water Treatment Options
