Yes, we sell salt water compatible hot tubs. Here’s a little more information about salt water systems.
A salt water system is a type of water filtration and sanitation system that can be added to many hot tubs. It works by using electrolysis to produce chlorine from salt, which is then used to sanitize the water in the hot tub. This system can be an alternative to traditional methods of water treatment, such as using chlorine tablets or bromine.
There are several potential benefits to using a salt water system in a hot tub. One advantage is that it can be less harsh on the skin and eyes than traditional chlorine-based sanitizers. It may also produce a softer, silkier feel to the water and be easier to maintain overall. In addition, the salt in the water can help to balance the pH levels and make the water feel more natural.
However, there are also some potential downsides to using a salt water system in a hot tub. One potential issue is that the salt can be corrosive to certain types of metal, such as brass and copper. It is important to carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the salt water system is compatible with the hot tub and its components. Another issue is higher chlorine levels and potentially more chemical balancing. Salt water systems can also lead to more calcium deposits in the tub, which can be harder to clean and potentially shorten the lifespan of components.
Sundance® Spas offers an alternative with their ActiveOxygen™ and CLEARRAY® systems, which use ozone and UV lighting to sanitize the water naturally. While these systems do require some supplemental chemicals, they can result in more natural-feeling water and lower maintenance costs.
Overall, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons before deciding on a salt water or alternative hot tub system.
