Water chemistry must be balance before the start-up of 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, Bio lab, 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.***
