The best way to maintain the water chemistry in a hot tub is to regularly test the pH, total alkalinity, and chlorine or bromine levels, and adjust as necessary or on a consistent weekly basis.
The pH should be between 7.2 and 7.8, total alkalinity should be between 80 and 120 ppm, and chlorine or bromine levels should be between 3 and 5 ppm. It's important to also to use appropriate chemicals, like pH balancer, chlorine or bromine, and algaecides, depending on the hot tub usage.
- It's also important to regularly clean the hot tub, including the filters, to remove any dirt or debris that may affect the water chemistry. It's a good idea to shock the hot tub with chlorine or non-chlorine shock every week to two weeks, especially if the tub is used frequently.
