Spa / Hot tub water

Navy80to04April 16, 2011

Hi everyone,

Did a search and could not find out about this, so I will ask.

Brother N Law is giving us there old hot tub, big 6 person one. Heater went out. and they are getting a new one. I put in heaters in hot tubs before, no trouble in doing this. What I just built a new home for my self to live in and I have city (HARD Water 14 GPG with a little iron). I have put in water filters and water softening system (GXSF40H GE) Do I fill my hot tub up with that (slowly not to over work the softener) or just hard city water? and is there salt water systems for hot tubs too?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

14gpg * 17.1 = 239ppm. That really isn't that hard, and can be compensated for by adjusting the TA.

I don't recommend salt for portable tubs because a lot of the equipment is stainless, and the salt destroys stainless.
