Hot Tub Chemicals
Hot tub chemicals are known by a number of names including sanitizers, cleansers, oxidizers, clarifiers, balancers, ionizers and defoamers. Chlorine and bromine are the most popular chemicals used by hot tub owners. Bromine is more expensive, however many people prefer it to chlorine because it has a less offensive smell and feel. Ozone generators or ionizers are also efficient chemicals for cleansing hot tubs, however many people are discouraged by the initial cost of purchasing these chemicals. Before choosing a water treatment for your hot tub, make sure you take the time to learn about the all options available.
