Ozone’s natural sanitation power is harnessed by the spa’s ozone generator to keep the hot tub water fresh and pure. The ozone is injected into the water in a fully dissolved state and interacts instantly with whatever organic matter is there. In theory, ozone has a half-life of about 22 minutes in a hot tub, but in practice it is used up almost instantly, leaving a very small quantity of residual ozone.
Your hot tub is a substantial investment as well as a source of pleasure, and it’s worth maintaining. The focus here is on water maintenance since it is the most important day-to-day element that owners can control themselves. When the water in the hot tub loses its freshness, gets smelly or itchy, gets cloudy or even causes ‘hot tub rash’, you know there’s a sanitation problem. These signs indicate you need to take steps to recover water quality and clarity. Chemicals, however, are often NOT the answer.
