General Water Care Information

We offer a variety of water care systems for your hot tub needs. At The Spa & Sauna Shop we strive to ensure the best purchase experience possible for each of our customers and that certainly extends to water care.

Below you will find several of the standard water care features that are included in many of our hot tubs.

Hot Spring Continuous Silent Filtration

In a Hot Spring spa, the SilentFlo 5000 circulation pump works continuously, filtering the spa's water for 24 hours a day. It's totally automatic, so there's no need to program long cleaning and heating cycles as in other spas. Nor do you have the wear and tear, energy drain or noise of a large jet pump running during those cycles. Operating silently and efficiently, your Hot Spring spa is always hot, clean and ready to enjoy.

Hot Spring 100% No Bypass Filtration

With 100% No-Bypass filtration, all the water passes through the filter before it re-enters the spa. With other spas, bypassing occurs when the jets are on - forcing unfiltered water directly back into the spa. With a Hot Spring spa, the gallon-per-minute flow of our pumps is carefully matched with each spa's square footage to achieve balanced filtration, so there's no need for bypassing.

Hot Spring Ozone System

Hot Spring spas come standard with the FreshWater III high-output ozone system. Working 24/7, it continuously injects millions of tiny, highly concentrated ozone bubbles into the water-neutralizing contaminants on contact. The system uses a corona discharge cell, requiring virtually no maintenance.

Tri-X Filter Technology

The patented Tri-X filter has twice the cleaning area of a similarly sized cartridge, filtering the water three-dimensionally through both the surface and depth. Dishwasher-safe, it's easy to maintain. Included as standard on many models, Tri-X filters can be used on any Hot Spring spa. Available only on the Vista, Grandee, Envoy, and Aria.

Additionally we have several specialty water care add ons. These add ons are the best in the business and are sure to meet your hot tub water care needs.

The ACE ® system allows spa owners to use water longer, requiring fewer harsh chemicals and does not contain the chlorine odor. The ACE ® water care system last longer than other water care system and saves time so you can enjoy your spa more.

SPA FROG Water Care System Cartridge Ready

SPA FROG is a simple, easy to use water care system to keep your spa clean and ready to use. With nothing to measure, the SPA FROG water care system is the perfect way to keep your spa water fresh and clean.

Hot Tub Water Care

The EverFresh® water care system keeps your spa clean and fresh, while reducing the need for chlorine. The EverFresh® water care system safely sanitize spa water, protects again contaminants, and is easy to maintain.

The CLEARRAY system instantly treats 99.9 percent of waterborne pathogens and does not introduce chemicals, gases or byproducts into the hot tub water. Lab tests have validated that water treated with CLEARRAY maintained the same cleanliness level while using up to 50 percent less sanitizing chemicals.

Monarch Water Care System

The optional Monarch Corona Discharge (CD) ozone water care system is a virtually chlorine-free approach to water care. It reduces the need for hot tub chemicals by continuously mixing highly concentrated ozone into the water in combination with MPS and silver ions.

With the CoolZone™ System, you can heat and cool the water – something that is not possible with most spas.
