Answers to Basic Spa Questions



Eye/Skin Irritation

What is it?

Eyes and skin can become irritated after spending time in the spa for various reasons. Out-of-balance spa parameters, specifically pH, can cause eye and skin irritation in soakers. A build-up of contaminants in water can also create chloramines (a chlorine smell) and contribute to eye/skin irritation.

To adjust pH:

  • Test water before adding product to ensure which factors need to be adjusted
  • Add Lo N' Slo®​ if pH is high, Balance Pak®200​ if the pH is low

To remove contaminants:

To prevent irritating conditions:

  • Keep spa water balanced according to suggested parameters
