Clear Choice spa/water treatment contains a non-toxic surfactant (soap) that breaks down organic waste to a smaller size. The smaller waste particles allow for a much faster natural oxidation process to occur. Our spa water treatment also contains a special nutrient (food source) that sustains the healthy bacteria we need but will not feed any type of infectious bacteria we do not want. This ensures that the enzyme system stays alive and healthy between soakers and swimmers. The ingredients in our product are a blend of several types or classes of natural enzymes and co-enzymes that rapidly start the natural oxidation process and the self-purification of your spa/pool.
This natural spa water system was invented by a leader in the natural bioremediation field who has replaced traditional toxic chemicals in a multitude of industries including medical and dental, food processing, agriculture, wastewater, recreational waters, meat packing and aquaculture. More information is available on the 'About Clear Choice' page.
Many retail spa dealers around the world carry the Clear Choice system. Some retail spa dealers are unconvinced of our approach or simply do not wish to offer this type of cutting-edge alternative to chemical solutions. The typical spa store applies a 100% mark up on spa chemicals and the majority of store profits come from chemical sales. This situation limits spa store profits in this manner because the Clear Choice system replaces several products and the income that they generate. We do have the most cost-effective and natural total spa system on the market today. We also have doctors, clinics, natural food stores and other retailers that choose to sell our products.
Your spa's regular filtration system is designed to circulate your hot tub's water and introduce plenty of oxygen. Combined with the Clear Choice product and clean water, as the heavy metals and minerals are filtered out, your spa's circulation system then acts as a bio-filter that traps waste as the water flows by and houses the healthy bacterial colonies needed to biodegrade that waste and purify your water. This natural system will contribute less wear and tear to your Spa's mechanics than normal chemical additives.
This natural system has been on the market for 20 years with great results and many satisfied customers. We are unaware of any claims or problems associated with health issues or performance...and it has been 20 years. Quite the opposite! Our customers are extremely loyal and LOVE the effects of the enzymes on their overall systems in replacement of the old chemicals ~ see 'Testimonials'.
Yes. A new hot tub is not necessarily a pure, clean system. Sometimes chemicals or other contaminants are run through at the factory, or the hot tub is not cleaned to Clear Choice specifications. To make sure your new hot tub runs worry-free, filter as directed in our easy-to-follow setup process.
Use this every time you drain your hot tub, which should be about every 6 to 12 months. If you have an extra-scummy or old hot tub, you may need to use it a few times initially to thoroughly clean the insides of the tub.
Using the Filter Wrap helps tremendously in moving a lot of the old debris out of the tub rather than re-circulating it all through the tub's filtration system. On occasion, we come across a model of hot tub or spa where the Filter Wrap doesn't fit properly. Therefore, they are more helpful than necessary for use in conjunction with the other products for clear, naturally-balanced spa water success.
Yes, the dosage directions on the Spa Water Purifier bottle are designed for a hot tub that holds 1800 Litres and is used at least 3 times per week. Reduce the dosage if your hot tub is smaller or used very little. Example: If your hot tub is only 1000 Litres, use half of the listed amount, etc.
Normally, adjustments are not needed. The Clear Choice System will automatically settle water pH at 7.8 through 8.2 and stabilize alkalinity. Your spa and skin are protected by the water pre-filter and special conditioning agents contained in the Spa Prep and One Step 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 Choice filter sleeve daily, skip your next 1-2 treatments When you resume weekly spa water treatment; reduce your dosage amount and clean spa filters and Clear Choice filter sleeve as directed above.
After water changes there is often a 1 or 2 week period of time when water is softening and changing molecularly. During this period water may look white & cloudy with no signs of overdosing. Add 1/2 of normal spa water treatment dosage amount immediately, then rinse your spa filters & Clear Choice filter sleeve thoroughly with clean water the following day.
Sometimes soft or hard deposits will form on the spa shell. This can be a result of some final chlorine or bromine salt deposits being flushed from your spa's plumbing system that the 'Spa Prep' purge did not completely remove. Normally, these deposits will break down and disappear within 2 weeks. If deposits remain, add 500 ml of white vinegar to spa water. After 2 days, repeat vinegar treatment if necessary. Deposits will then normally disappear within a week.
This is harmless and should disappear with time. Normally, this is caused by residual metals in the water that are oxidizing. A green tint can also result from not using a new pre-filter on your hose when adding water to your spa. Metals, like copper or nickel, in non-filtered water are prone to oxidizing.
This is normal for new customers during the first 1-4 weeks as the natural spa water sets up. With time, this odour (trapped Co2 gas) will only be noticeable when you first open your spa cover and release the steam.
Light flakes in the water are non-toxic buildup from spa's plumbing system. Clean spa filter and sleeve more often. If flakes persist, add 2oz of Spa Prep & 1200ml of white vinegar to spa water, wait 6-12 hours, then change spa water. To prevent continual build up, adjust and maintain the spa water pH to 7.2 through 7.6 using traditional pH spa products, if you feel this is necessary.
Check and maintain a water pH of 7.6 for the first 2 months using pH test strips and any common pH-lowering product available from your local pool and spa supply store. After that, periodic pH adjustments should not be necessary as you continue to use and enjoy the Clear Choice system.
