Genesis Water Chemistry

Water chemistry must be balanced before start up the Genesis device. 

 

*****IF THE WATER IS NOT PROPERLY BALANCED - THE GENESIS WILL NOT CREATE BROMINE.*****


IDEAL RANGES 

  • pH ideal range 7.2 - 7.8 (7.6 being the optimum), test pH on a weekly basis.


  • Alkalinity ideal range 80 - 120 ppm, test Alkalinity on a monthly basis.


  • Calcium hardness  150 - 400 ppm, test yearly.


  • Phosphates - level should be less than 100 ppb




ADJUSTING WATER CHEMISTRY 
  • Follow the label instructions based on your tub size 
  • We recommend Leisure Time, Biolab, and Blue Wave products. 
  • See us we have Leisure Time products



ADJUSTING pH: 
  • If pH is low (below 7.2) raise by using a base baking soda or soda ash product 
  • If pH is high (above 7.8) lower by using a muriatic acid or sodium bisulfate product 


ADJUSTING ALKALINITY: 
  • If Alkalinity is low (below 80) add baking soda product 
  • If Alkalinity is high (above 120) add sodium bisulfate product 


ADJUSTING CALCIUM HARDNESS: 
  • If calcium is low (below 150) add a calcium chloride product 
  • If calcium is high (above 400) partially drain the tub and refill with fresh water 


ADJUSTING TDS- Total Dissolved Solids: 
  • Total Dissolved Solids are a combination of metals, minerals and other organic materials in your water. 
    If your spa has been filled with well water or with water from a non-municipal source, additional 
    chemicals to remove metals and or chemical contaminants may need to be added to your water. TDS
    can be tested with a meter, test strip, or by taking a water sample to your local spa and pool dealer.


PHOSPHATE CONTAMINATION 
  • Phosphates are contaminants that come from products such as fertilizer, soap, shampoo, lotion, and
    perfume. Phosphates can be tested with a strip or by taking a water sample to your local spa and pool 
    dealer.


                                            ***Some spa chemicals such as spa filter cleaners and salt water softeners contain*** 
                                                                                 Phosphates and should not be used.
