How to Test Hot Tub for Bacteria

How do You Know Spa Marvel is Working?

 

Test your hot tub for bacteria:

Hi There ... This is Dale, the owner of NiftyStuff Distribution. I have personally been using Spa Marvel in our hot tub since 2010.  Over that period of time I've had a lot of questions from our customers, but one which comes up most often is 'How do I know Spa Marvel is working?' or 'How do I test for bacteria so I'm sure my family is safe using our hot tub?'.  Those are two very understandable questions with real concerns.  

Below is a video by Tim Rogers, one of the owners of Spa Marvel Company, where he explains 'How do you know Spa Marvel is Working'.  It is a very informative video and well worth the time to watch.

 

Hopefully you watched the video.  Whether you are using Spa Marvel Hot Tub Treatment or chemicals such as chlorine or bromine, there is no guarantee your hot tub is bacteria free.  There are a few signs to watch out for.

Is the hot tub or swimming pool water crystal clear?  Usually if the hot tub water is crystal clear you are safe to go.  If your hot tub has cloudy water for more than a day or two, then add a couple teaspoons of sanitizer.  This should clear the water within 24 hours.  If not, then you should test the water using our WaterSafe Bacteria Test Kit.

Does the Hot Tub water have an odour?  You may not have a bacteria problem if you are using Spa Marvel Hot Tub Treatment.  While chemicals such as chlorine or bromine mask hot tub odours, Spa Marvel doesn't.  It has no odour.  In most cases if you are using Spa Marvel Hot Tub Treatment the musty smell will be coming from the hot tub filters which need to be PROPERLY cleaned.  See here for details.  If your filters are properly cleaned then you should test the water using our WaterSafe Bacteria Test Kit.

Have any of your guests had a skin rash, irritation or infection?  If so then definitely shock the water with a non-chlorine sanitizer.  This will not effect Spa Marvel but it will eliminate any bacteria which may be caused from your guest with an infection.

Your hot tub water should be crystal clear at all times, whether you are using Spa Marvel or chemicals.  If not then that is a sign that something isn't right.  Test the water using our WaterSafe Bacteria Test Kit.

Sometimes the easiest way to overcome water problems that you can't seem to eliminate, is to just do a drain and refill. 

Hopefully this has been helpful.
