As most in the industry know, the buildup of scale in a hot tub/spa can be a pain. Literally. Once the scale has formed, the only thing left to do is grab a mild scale remover and start scrubbing.

Saltwater systems have become extremely popular over the past five to 10 years. The system’s popularity, however, began with pools, to improve the swimming experience while simultaneously reducing the amount of traditional chemicals needed to sanitize the water.

Calcium phosphate scale is a new problem creeping into the swimming pool and hot tub industry. However, the problem has long been recognized in the boiler industry. Calcium phosphate scale became prevalent when reverse osmosis (RO) technology was widely applied to municipal waste water. Due to recent water shortages, municipal waste water recycling and reuse has become a major area where this water purification technology has become prevalent. As such, preventative actions have become commonplace for commercial boiler water and now, it seems, it may become standard for treating swimming pool and hot tub water, as well.
SeaKlear water treatment products looks to make spa/hot tub water maintenance easier for service professionals and homeowners alike with the addition of hot water treatment ‘pods’ to its Mighty Pod line.
