Here's how you can use the Chlorine Starter Kit to ensure your hot tub remains a sanctuary of clarity and comfort.

Note: Circulate your Spa or Hot Tub water for at least 10 minutes after any chemical addition and before adding another product.

Filling & Draining:

  1. Fill Spa & Hot tub to the correct water level (at least halfway up the top skimmer/filter opening)
  2. Test pH and Alkalinity using Test Strips at least weekly. pH should be between 7.2 to 7.8; total alkalinity should be between 80 to 140 ppm; water/calcium hardness should be between 200 to 400ppm. If not, make the needed adjustments using the pH Increaser, pH Decreaser & Alkalinity Increaser, and Calcium Increaser accordingly.
  3. Use Stain & Scale to prevent & remove mineral scale buildup and to protect your spa components.
  4. Add Chlorinating Granules to dissolve contaminants in your water quickly. If your spa is not Chlorine compatible, try our Bromine Spa Starter Kit.


Maintain the recommended chlorine level at all times. Aquadoc Chlorinating Granules recommends maintaining 3-5ppm of FAC (free available chlorine) while the hot tub/spa is in use. Test the chlorine level regularly, especially before and after each use. Add Chlorinating Granules as needed to achieve proper levels.


  1. Test water using Test Strips; adjust total alkalinity, pH levels, and calcium hardness using pH Increaser, pH Decreaser, Alkalinity Increaser & Calcium Increaser accordingly
  2. Add Chlorinating Granules when necessary.
  3. Add Water Clarifier to defend against cloudy water
  4. Add Spa Defoamer to get rid of the foam
  5. Add Chlorine Free Shock after every use to quickly oxidize contaminants

Important! Please follow the instructions on the container of each chemical in the kit carefully for maximum results and safety!
