Test Strips for Hot Tubs & Spas

Spa and hot tub test strips are a convenient and easy way to check the water chemistry in your spa or hot tub. These strips are typically made from paper or plastic and are coated with different chemicals that react to various water parameters, such as pH, total alkalinity, and sanitizer levels.

Here are some of the most commonly tested parameters using spa and hot tub test strips:

  1. pH: pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity of the water. Ideally, the pH level in a hot tub should be between 7.2 and 7.8.

  2. Total Alkalinity: Total alkalinity measures the ability of the water to resist changes in pH. The recommended range for total alkalinity in a hot tub is between 80 and 120 ppm.

  3. Sanitizer Levels: Sanitizer levels, typically measured using chlorine or bromine test strips, indicate the amount of sanitizer in the water. The recommended level of sanitizer for a hot tub is between 3 and 5 ppm.

Using spa and hot tub test strips is a simple process - simply dip the strip into the water for a few seconds and then compare the colors on the strip to the color chart provided with the kit. It's important to test the water regularly to ensure proper water balance and to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and algae.
