Day 3

  1. Rinse the mineral pack in a bucket of water to remove sediment.
  2. Place the mineral pack inside of the filter cartridge according to manufacturer’s directions. The D1 Vision Cartridge is placed on top of the filter cartridge without the basket.
  3. Run jets for 30 minutes.
  4. Add 2 oz. Non-Chlorine Shock to your hot tub, and leave the hot tub’s cover off for at least 20 minutes.

After you are done using the tub for the day add 1 1/2 oz. (3 Tablespoons) of Granular Chlorine to the hot tub.

Normal Weekly Routine

  1. Test and adjust alkalinity, pH, calcium hardness, and chlorine levels as needed.
  2. Add 2 oz. of Non-Chlorine Shock once a week (add twice a week if the tub is used more than 4 times that week). Leave the hot tub running with the cover open for at least 20 minutes after adding shock.
  3. Add 1 1/2 oz. Granular Chlorine 20 minutes after adding the Non-Chlorine Shock.

We recommend having your water tested at Pettis Pools & Patio monthly.
