    Hot Tub Water Care 101

    Whether you’re a first-time buyer, or a long-time Beachcomber owner, the experience of having a hot tub in your home is something that always brings a ton of excitement. It’s also one that comes with a certain level of responsibility. Maintaining high-quality, clear hot tub water is something that everyone wants, and makes lying back and enjoying the benefits of a Beachcomber an unforgettable experience for your family and guests.

    This maintenance is something that gets a lot of attention from prospective buyers. We often hear ‘how difficult is it really to keep hot tub water safe & balanced’ as one of their first questions as they weigh whether to make a purchase.

    The reality today is that hot tub water care has never been easier or less time consuming – just taking a few minutes per week – as long as you subscribe to a treatment program that meets the needs of you and your family.

    Choosing the right water program comes down to asking yourself a few key questions:

    • How important is having an easy to follow program?
    • Is lessening the amount of ‘chemicals’ required for safe, clear, clean water, a priority?
    • Are you planning to use your hot tub frequently?
    • Is dry skin a concern for a member of the household?

    If the answer is yes to any or all of the above, Beachcomber has the perfect system for you: CARE FREE

    Here’s Why:

    This easy to use 4-in-1 water care system does away with a host of conditioning products by integrating water clarifiers, enzyme biofilm disruptors, metal sequestering agents, and multi-oxidizing components into a single two product system: CARE FREE + CARE FREE BOOST™.

    With 4 conditioning products, all available within a single bottle of CARE FREE, you cut down on cost and the number of products you need to achieve the best results.

    How It Works:

    • When starting up your hot tub, follow the instructions here.
    • For on-going maintenance, use 74g of CARE FREE per 1000 L of water once a week for typical hot tub usage. Allow to circulate for at least 15 minutes before you enter the water.
    • After each use, add a little CARE FREE BOOST™ sanitizer to ensure the cleanest, healthiest water.


    If you’re heading away for a few days:

    Adding CHLOR DISCS™ to your CARE FREE program will ensure a sanitizer residual is maintained when your hot tub is not in use and prevents you from having to recover from a cloudy hot tub when you’ve been away. So take your holiday, without having to worry about a drain & fill when you return!

    What about sensitive skin?  

    Beachcomber’s SOFT™ is a natural boron salt that moisturizes your skin and makes the water silky and just very pleasant to be in.  SOFT™ is optimized for the CARE FREE water care system and universally compatible with all water care systems. Add a little in, and you’ll be able to feel the effects as you soak!

    So remember, CARE FREE is perfect for avid hot tub users as you need only add CARE FREE once a week and a little CARE FREE BOOST™ after each hot tub use.
