The first chemical that most people think of when it comes to cleaning a pool or spa is chlorine. The second would probably be bromine. But this Spa Shock and Oxidizer by Spa Essentials isn't either of those chemicals. It primarily uses a much less known chemical called potassium peroxymonosulfate. Because of this, it has a couple of advantages of chlorine or bromine. In a pool or spa, pH has a tendency to fluctuate. But in a spa this change is much more pronounced because of its higher temperature. The problem is that chlorine stops being effective once pH reaches a certain level. For pool owners, that just means you have to carefully watch your water's pH. But for spa owners, that change can be overwhelming to manage if you want to keep the chlorine effective. But that's not the case with the Spa Essentials Spa Shock and Oxidizer. It's formulated to resist the effects of a higher or lower pH, so it stays strong in-between your regular spa management sessions. Temperature can also be a struggle for chlorine. As the water gets hotter, chlorine has a harder time doing its job. Once it gets to 100 degrees F, chlorine will actually vaporize, eliminating any utility it might have had left. Since spas often go past 100 degrees F, using chlorine to clean one would likely be difficult or impossible. But this shock and oxidizer is able to handle the heat just fine, letting you enjoy those hot baths without worrying about how your chemicals are faring. Something that many might take for granted in a chemical cleaner is a chemical smell. The smell of chlorine is especially strong, and even bromine has it to a lesser extent. That's not the case with the Spa Essentials Shock and Oxidizer. Using this treatment won't leave any chlorine odor, which means you can enjoy your backyard without the distraction of that smell. This granular shock can be used to open a spa for the season. It can also be used as a part of regular maintenance. Either way, the Spa Shock and Oxidizer by Spa Essentials is sure to help keep your hot tub clean and satisfying.
