I just finished wiring up my hot tub and am filling it as I type this. Any tips to get the water right.

from my experience I'd say a couple spilled beers and misc. body fluids seem to be par for the course.

just make sure you get a good quality water testing kit. Dont be cheap on that. Test your water twice a week atleast. And use good quality additives and chemicals. Take care of your hot tub and it will take care of you lol.

Are you going bromide or chlorine or some magic earth rocks in the filter?

Define what you mean by 'right'? 'Right' to some may include globules of used condoms and a passed out hooker asleep over the edge with the residue of an 8 ball sitting on the side-table.

Hot tubs are sweet. We broke the one at the lodge in Ferrelville, WI, the first night.:laughing: BTW, Crystale is what the bawlers pour in there.

I would say do this at least every other day, and every day is even more preferred. Look up Hot Tub Folliculitis if you want to know why :)

Here's some decent tips...
