FAQs

A: Saltwater hot tubs are often considered more convenient and gentler on the skin compared to traditional chlorine hot tubs. The saltwater system generates chlorine from the salt itself, reducing the need to handle and store chlorine chemicals. Saltwater also tends to be softer on the skin and eyes, making for a more pleasant soaking experience for many people.

A: While saltwater hot tubs generally require less frequent maintenance compared to traditional chlorine hot tubs, they still need regular upkeep. You’ll need to monitor and adjust the salt levels, check the pH and alkalinity levels, clean the salt cell periodically, and ensure proper filtration and circulation. However, the overall maintenance is often considered simpler and less time-consuming.

A: Saltwater hot tubs may have slightly higher upfront costs due to the saltwater generator system, but they can be more cost-effective to operate in the long run. Salt is generally less expensive than traditional chlorine chemicals, and the system’s automated chlorine generation can help reduce overall chemical usage, potentially saving you money over time.

A: Some people believe that soaking in saltwater can have therapeutic benefits, such as soothing sore muscles, improving skin conditions, and promoting relaxation. The softer feel of saltwater and reduced chemical odors may also enhance the overall hot tub experience for some users.

A: No, it is not recommended to use regular table salt in a saltwater hot tub. Table salt typically contains additives that can be harmful to the hot tub’s components and may not dissolve properly. It’s essential to use only pure, uniodized salt that is specifically designed for use in saltwater hot tubs.
