What is AquaFinesse?
AquaFinesse is a completely different spa maintenance alternative to th usual water treatments such as chlorine or bromine. Aqua Finess provides a clean, clear and odour-free water with only one cup per week.
AquaFinesse also softens hot tub water by eliminating calcium and the build up of scale. Compared to traditional water sanitisers designed for swimming pools, Aquafinesse not only makes hot tub water maintenance easier, it also extends the life of your hot tub especially when used in combination with a good working ozone or silver ion system, no additional sanitisers are needed. However, we do recommend that you still maintain a minimum level of 1.5-ppm chlorine in the water. To meet these standards, simply use the provided sanitising tablets as directed in the slow-release dispenser. Soon, your water will be in the best shape of its life: no pH products, clarifiers or additional chemicals needed!
How is AquaFinesse supplied?
AquaFinesse comes in a convenient carrying case that contains everything you need for up to 6 months of effective spa water treatment. The box contains two bottles of the AquaFinesse™ solution, a measuring cup, sanitising tablets, slow release dispenser and a very easy to understand instruction card.
Can I use AquaFinesse in any hot tub ?
AquaFinesse works with all tubs as long as the tub has an effective filtration system, removable/cleanable filters and a means of providing water circulation through the filters.
Can I use AquaFinesse in a hot tub spa with water that already has chlorine or bromine in it?
Preferably you should empty and refill the hot tub to get the immediate benefits of AquaFinesse. However if you havnt got time and the chlorine or bromine has been in for more than one week then you will need to drain a third of the water in hot tub spas and then refill it with new water before using AquaFinesse™.
How do I use AquaFinesse?
Take one bottle from the case and read the label for the recommended weekly dose. Shake well and use the measuring cup to pour the directed amount of AquaFinesse into the hot tub water. Turn on the jets and leave them running for at least two minutes to fully mix in the solution.
When used in combination with a good working ozone or silver ion system, no additional sanitisers are needed.
However, recommend that you maintain a minimum level of 1.5-ppm chlorine in the spa water. We strongly suggest using the provided sanitising tablets as directed in the slow-release dispenser.
Place one AquaFinesse sanitising tablet into the dispenser, secure cap and place dispenser on top of the water filter (or in the basket). Allow the dispenser to fill with water. Before using your tub, ensure that the dispenser is placed in the filter and working properly. The tablet can also be placed in a floating dispenser.
Do I need to "shock" the spa water before starting the AquaFinesse system?
No, it is not necessary to shock your water before starting the AquaFinesse system. However, there are certain situations in which we recommend a chlorine shock. With brand new tubs, we suggest shocking the water after you've filled the spa for the first time. If you also have concerns about the quality of your water supply, you can shock the water before starting with AquaFinesse™.
After shocking we recommend that you wait eight hours before adding AquaFinesse.
What do the sanitizing tablets do?
A small chlorine tablet is used in conjunction with our slow-release dispenser to kill all the bacteria from your tub after it's captured in the filter. The amount of residual chlorine remaining in your spa water is very minimal. This small dose significantly reduces unpleasant smells, dryness or bleaching effects typically associated with chlorine use.
I have just started using AquaFinesse and my water is cloudy and dirty?
This is a sign that the AquaFinesse is working properly to recondition your hot tub spa water. With time, a considerable amount of calcium and scale can buildup withing the plumbing, AquaFinesse will be release it and flush into the water, and during this reconditioning period we recommend that you clean your filter(s) more often, helping the flow of water throughout the system.
How often should I clean the filters in my hot tub?
AquaFinesse™ works very closely with your tub's filtration system to ensure total water sanitation. We recommend cleaning the filters twice a week for the first two weeks. After this initial conditioning period, you should clean or rotate your filters on a weekly basis. For easier maintenance, we also recommend that you purchase back-up filters and rotate them regularly.
What's the best way to clean the filters?
For weekly maintenance, remove the filters from the tub and rinse them completely using the garden hose. Once a month, soak the filter(s) in a bucket using a filter cleaner and rinse off filters before re-use. Always allow the filter(s) to dry completely before reinserting them into the tub.
How often should I use AquaFinesse to clean my hot tub water?
Use AquaFinesse as directed once a week: DO NOT overdose. Set a specific day for this. The sanitising tablet should be replaced in its dispenser as soon as it has dissolved, approximately 7 to 14 days.
What happens if I overdose my hot tub with AquaFinesse?
If an overdose occurs, you must drain 1/3 of your hot tub water, refill with fresh water and make sure you thoroughly clean the filters before re-inserting them. Always make sure you do not overdose.
How often should I change the water in my hot tub spa?
We recommend changing your water every three to four months but it all really depends on the usage and water maintenance. We suggest that you refresh the water each time you a new box of AquaFinesse.
