Switching to the Clear Choice System and Water Changes
- Remove all spa filters and filtering boots.
- Open and center all spa jets and air valves.
- Add Spa Prep as per label directions to spa water.
- Let spa heat and circulate for the proper time period. (see label on Spa Prep) Spa may become cloudy or foamy as the product works. It is okay to use spa during this purge time.
New or Empty Spas:
Fill Spa with water (no Pre Filter Hose needed) and follow above directions
Every 6-12 months depending on usage, do a complete water change by following these directions:
After purging spa:
- Drain spa water.
- When water stops draining, turn spa power on and run all spa jets for 5 seconds. This will blow out all the dirty water trapped in the spa plumbing. Do not walk away or leave spa jets or power on for any longer than a couple seconds, as you may damage your spas mechanical equipment.
- Remove all remaining water and wipe spa dry, using a soft towel or sponge.
- Close spa drain.
- Reinstall new or clean spa filters and boots.
Filling spa with fresh water:
- Attach a new Clear Choice Pre-filter to a standard garden hose.
- Flush Pre-filter for 1 minute before placing in spa and fill spa with water. The pre-filter removes unwanted metals & minerals from fresh water. Use the pre-filter whenever adding water to your spa.
- Replace Pre-filter as indicated on label instructions.
Home water softeners:
If you have a home unit, use the conditioned water along with the Pre-filter to fill 3/4 of the spa. Complete filling
the spa using only the Pre-filter by bypassing your home water softener.
Add Clear Choice Spa Drops following the dosage guidelines on back of label.
Do not overdose! Read the bottle label and measure carefully!
Attention! The dosage directions on the bottle are for big spas that hold 400-500 gallons. Reduce
the dosage accordingly. Example: If your spa holds 250 gallons, use 1/2 of the listed amount.
Filter & Boot Cleaning:
Weekly-Rinse with high pressure water. Monthly-Soak overnight in clean water and 5 cups of white vinegar. Rinse spa filters and Clear Boots well with high pressure clean water before reinstalling in spa.
Clean Spa Cover:
Clean top & bottom of cover with a good household degreasing cleaner. Rinse well with clean water.
Installing Clear Boots:
3 or 5 boots install on 1 or more intake grills located at ankle height in spa foot well area. These grills are where spa pumps draw in water for circulation, filtering and jet activation. You can install as many Clear Boots as desired, but normally 1 or 2 placed on grill(s) that connect to the spas constant or timed filter cycling is adequate. To install boots, roll the elastic edge, like putting socks on a child, then fold over in place.
Clear Choice is compatible with ozone units but they are not required for this natural system to work.
Soft tubs & small Spas:
Reduce dosage of Spa Prep when purging spa and weekly Spa Treatment by 50%.
PH & Alkalinity:
Normally adjustments are not needed. The Clear Choice System will automatically settle water pH at 7.8 thru 8.2 and stabilize alkalinity. Your spa and skin are protected from damage by the water Pre-filter and special conditioning agents contained in the Spa Prep and Spa Water Treatment.
Using too much Clear Choice is the most common problem with this system. Initial overdosing symptoms are excessive buildup of amber or brown residue at the water line and/or around jets. This can also be accompanied by green or brown tinted water. Soon after the water clarity and odor will be affected. Clean your spa filters and Clear Boots daily, skip your next full week of treatments. When you resume weekly spa water treatment; reduce your dosage amount and clean spa filters & Clear Boots as directed above
Soft, odorless & colorless residue on spa surfaces are harmless salts. Residue will dissipate with time.
White Cloudy Water:
After water change-out there is often a period of time when the water is changing molecularly. During this period, water may look white & cloudy with no signs of overdosing. Add a full week's dose of Spa Water Purifier to correct the problem.
Rough Surface Deposits:
Sometimes soft or hard deposits will form on spa shell. This can be a result of some final chlorine or bromine salt deposits being flushed from spa plumbing that the Spa Prep purge did not completely remove. Normally these deposits will breakdown and disappear within 2 weeks. If deposits remain, lower the spa water pH to 7.6 using any pH down product and test strips found at your local spa store. Deposits should disappear within a week.
Green tinted Water:
This is harmless and should disappear with time. Normally just some residual metals in the water that are oxidizing. A green tint can also result from not using a fresh hose Per-filter when adding water to your spa. Metals like copper or nickel in non-filtered water are oxidizing.
Light Musty Odor:
Normal for new customers during the first 1-4 weeks as the natural spa water sets up. With time this odor (trapped Co2 gas) will only be noticeable when you first open your spa cover and release the steam.
Light flakes in water are non-toxic buildup from spas plumbing system. Clean your spa filters and boots more often If flakes persist; add 2oz of Spa Prep & 5 cups of white vinegar to spa water, wait 6-12 hours then change spa water. Refill hot tub again following above directions (after purging spa). To prevent continual build up, adjust and maintain the spa water pH to 7.2 thru 7.6 using traditional pH spa products.
Brand New Tubs:
Check and maintain a water pH of 7.6 for the first 2 months using pH test strips and any common pH down product available from your local pool and spa store. After that period pH adjustments should not be necessary as you continue to use The Clear Choice System.
If after installing Clear Boots you find that they are restricting water flow through the lines attached to or are causing spa pumps to shut down; cut a small hole in the center of the Clear Boot to improve water flow, try placing the Clear Boot on another intake grill or just stop using them altogether. Often, you will find that after a few months your spa will function just fine without using the Clear Boots on a full-time basis.
