Myth Busting Spa Style

Myth Busting Spa Style

Ever felt puzzled by what you’ve heard about spa care? Well, buckle up! We’re diving into the bubbly world of spa myths to splash away the misconceptions. Get ready to soak up the truth and ensure your spa time is nothing but blissful. Let’s warm up those facts and chill out the fables! 

Myth: "Self-Cleaning Spas Don't Require Maintenance" 

Verdict: False 

While it's tempting to believe that "self-cleaning" implies no work, this is a myth. The term "self-cleaning" is a trademark and while many spas, including ours, have advanced filtration systems to help maintain cleanliness, they do not eliminate the need for regular care. Proper chemical maintenance is still essential to ensure your spa remains a safe and pleasant environment. 


Myth: "I Can't Use Well Water in My Spa" 

Verdict: False 

You absolutely can use well water for your spa; however, there are a few precautions to take. Avoid using a water softener, as soft water can affect the chemical balance. Always test your well water for mineral levels to prevent scaling and other issues. Additionally, attaching a pre-filter to your garden hose when filling your spa can help filter out any excess minerals. 


Myth: "I Can’t Run a Hot Tub in the Winter" 

Verdict: False 

 There is no season better suited for enjoying the warmth of a hot tub than winter. Our spas are designed to function flawlessly even in the chilliest Canadian winters, heating up to a cozy 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Imagine unwinding in the soothing warmth while the world around you is blanketed in snow—it’s an unmatched experience! 


Myth: "Bromine is Better for Maintaining My Spa" 

Verdict: It Depends 

Bromine can be effective for some spa owners, but it's not necessarily better than chlorine. Bromine is gentler on skin and produces less odor, but it can also significantly alter your spa’s pH levels. Chlorine granules might be more suitable as they maintain effective sanitization without affecting the pH drastically. The choice depends on your personal preference and water chemistry. 


Myth: "I Can Place My Spa on Grass" 

Verdict: False 

Placing your spa directly on grass is not advisable. Spas are quite heavy, especially when filled with water and occupied. Grass and soil are unstable and can shift, leading to your spa becoming unlevel over time. A solid, stable base like a reinforced deck or a concrete pad is necessary to support the weight and ensure longevity. 


Myth: "All Hot Tubs Are the Same, and Previous Owners Know It All" 

Verdict: False 

It's a common misconception that all hot tubs are the same and that if you've owned one before, you know all there is to know. In truth, each model comes with its own set of features and specifications. Even as an experienced hot tub owner, it's crucial to understand the unique aspects of any new model you purchase. Our hot tubs include the latest advancements in technology and design, so taking the time to learn about these can greatly enhance your experience and ensure your hot tub operates efficiently. 



Myth: "If the Spa Has an Ozone System, No Need for Chemicals" 

Verdict: False 

Some believe that an ozone system in a spa eliminates the need for any chemical maintenance, which is not accurate. While an ozone system does help reduce the reliance on chemicals by breaking down contaminants and bacteria, it does not completely replace the need for them. Regular chemical treatments are still necessary to ensure the water remains safe and clean for use. It's important to balance the use of an ozone system with the appropriate chemicals to maintain optimal water quality in your spa.
