What does this mean for you as a hot tub owner? With all three systems working in tandem, your spa water will require less addition of sanitizing agents and chemicals than ever before saving you time and money.
Enhanced Ozone System (EOS O3™)
WellSpring™ Circulation Pump
The EOS O3™ is a revolutionary water purification system that is up to twice as effective at oxidizing out impurities, without the negative effects of excess ozone gas.
This unique 3-part system generates as much as 2 times the amount of ozone as standard systems, charges spa water with O3 more effectively, sanitizes spa water better, and destructs nearly all the residual O3 gas.
EOS has been third-party validated to kill 99.9% of the microorganisms found in spas.
Bullfrog Spas’ WellSpring Filtration Pump lets you filter your spa water without noise or high costs. This quiet and vibration-free circulation pump is more than 8 times as effective at filtering spa water than standard circulation pumps. The more times your water goes through the filter, the cleaner your water. Moving 35 gallons (130 liters) per minute, this pump can push every ounce of water through the dual filters many times per day.
Since the WellSpring Filtration Pump is more effective than the standard pump, it can do the job of keeping your water clean in significantly fewer operating hours. This leads to an average savings of 60% in filtration energy costs (6,060 gallons per kilowatt vs. 3,480 gallons per kilowatt).
Please ensure you are checking on your chemical levels every week and keeping them in the correct ranges. This will help manage your water care and keep your hot tub components from degradation.
When adding chemicals to your spa please ensure the cover lid is completely open for 20 mins. This will prevent your lid from coming in to contact with any off gases, discoloration and it will pro-long the coverlid longevity.
Culligan does offer a Complimentary Spin touch analysis to help with your water care. It will give a digital reading on multiple components that are in your water. Such as Phosphates, Iron, Hardness, Alkalinity, Ph and sanitization levels. Please come in with a sample of your spa water in a small mason jar or Tupperware container. This sample will need to be tested on the same day.
*If you are using your spa regularly pleased add a third filtration cycle to your spa as this will also help with your water care.
We also provide a Drain and Fill service for hot tubs. Culligan will come and empty your spa water into our empty totes and then with our Hot water totes, we will fill your spa. The cost to this service is $150+gst.
Near the end of October, it is time to consider doing what would be your third or fourth drain and fill of the year. It is recommended to do a drain and fill of your Spa water 3-4 times a calendar year. Doing a drain and fill now is advantageous as this should take you to the month of January before you need your next drain and fill.
January usually has a little window where the temperatures reach around -5 degrees Celsius.
If you're unfamiliar with doing a drain and fill please see the bottom of this page is where you will find “how to drain and fill” videos.
If draining and filling is not your thing then that’s okay, Culligan’s got you! Culligan offers a Drain and Fill service should you want us to do it for you. *Please note that we do ask for about a two week heads up to be able to schedule you in for this service. * Another key component when doing a Drain is a FLUSH (See system flushing below). Flush helps to do an internal cleanse of the components and lines of your Spa. Add Flush to the spa 1 hour before you start draining it. (Please read instructions) While you’re draining your spa, remove the Jet paks and give them a good wipe down especially the back side of them. Wipe the acrylic down, rinse out those blue filters and then you're ready to start filling. Remember that you need to wait till the water temp reaches 80 degrees Fahrenheit before adding your puck floater or any other water chemicals to the Spa water. Add your Stain control, (read instruction) test your water and add sanitizer and water care product according to the water test.
Firstly, we recommend having a little mini ceramic heater or incandescent light bulb (100watt old school light bulb) if you can still find them.
In the event you need to keep the pump area warm (from freezing) you would take the front panel off and place the ceramic heater or light bulb in that area.
**Please note that you will not be able to completely clip the panel back into place as the electrical cord will be in the way. you can prop it closed to help keep the heat in and it sheltered. Please see heater images below. **
The Jet pack front light should always be on, if it is not this is an added indicator that your spa has no power.
The second tip we recommend having on hand in the event of pump failure is a Submersible water heater. (like a cattle trough heater see image below) We highly recommend one with a thermostat. This will allow you to set it and heat to set temp and maintain it all on its own.
These are all precautionary steps to allow a Technician time to help diagnose/asses your Spa and ensure that is does not freeze up.
As a general best practice, you should flush your spa lines whenever you change
Before draining your hot tub, add some Flush to your ‘probably cloudy’ spa water. Start by removing your pillow tops and filters. Turn your pumps on and allow it to circulate for 1 hour. Always read the instructions before hand for the right dose and amounts. You will most likely see some foaming while the flush circulates. This is normal. It is just all the biofilm and other gunk coming out of the plumbing.
Therefore, it is recommended that you should use Flush before you drain the hot tub. Adding Flush to your draining process will also help to address any biofilm problems that could occur, it will help remove any scale and calcium accumulation in the plumbing lines which will help maintain your heater and pumps.
It is important that we care for the inner parts of the spa that also encounters your
A sequestering agent naturally prevents staining, and water colouration from metals in the spa water from sticking to the Acrylic.
Keep the pH and alkalinity within range to avoid iron, calcium or any other minerals to precipitate (fall out of) solution. Using Stain Control will force the particles/metals/minerals found in water not to bind to the surface of your acrylic, pipes or equipment (pumps, jets, heater). It will force those particles to bind to your filters instead. Another reason why we rinse and clean our filters on a regular basis. The Stain & Control product should be added on a new fill and on a weekly basis.
You can immediately use your spa after adding this solution. Its natural and biodegradable formula does not add Phosphates to your water.
On several occasions we have been asked if it is okay to put softened water in the hot tub to acquire the soft feel of water on the skin. We DO NOT recommend adding softened water as it can cause excessive foaming and may leech the minerals from the acrylic in the hot tub. What you can do, to achieve the SILKY SOFT SKIN feel is add
