SPA Care Systems

There are various ways to care for your spa depending upon sanitizer preferences and frequency of use. Other factors such as spa size, location and ease of application will drive your treatment decision. Below are the four systems SpaGuard offers to keep water clean, clear and comfortable.

Bromine System

A non-chlorine option that works well for indoor applications

Chlorine System

Traditional water care for most applications

Soft Soak® TRIO® System

Simple, pre-measured program for optimum softness and clarity

Soft Soak® System

Non-chlorine, non-bromine alternative program

Bromine System

SpaGuard Bromine System

Brominating products are the preferred sanitizer for most spas. Since spas are usually covered or indoor, the bromine is not exposed to UV rays so the lack of a stabilizer is not a problem. Moreover, bromination has some distinct advantages:

  • Bromine Immediately Kills Bacteria and Algae – It’s very effective at killing all types of algae
  • Bromine Keeps On Killing – When combined with nitrogenous material, the bromamines continue to actively kill bacteria
  • Bromine Can Be Reactivated – Oxidizing not only destroys built-up undesirable compounds, it gives new life to ineffective bromides
  • Bromine Works in a Wider Range of pH – This is especially important in a spa environment where pH has a tendency to bounce around

SpaGuard Chlorine System

Historically, chlorine has been used the longest in the spa industry and it tends to be popular due to its ease of use and lower cost. It is an effective means for sanitizing spa water and killing bacteria. Granular chlorine can be applied directly to spa water to protect bathers against contaminants.

Chlorine can be stabilized against UV degradation, so it is often the ideal choice for outdoor spas that are exposed to sunlight.

  • Granular chlorine has a more neutral pH – With a pH closer to neutral your water is more likely to stay in balance which allows for less chemical applications.
  • Chlorine can also be used as an oxidizer – Chlorine is excellent at oxidizing compounds in spas, which tend to accumulate in these small bodies of water with higher bather loads
  • Chlorine is more compatible with certain ionizing cartridge systems – Some manufacturers endorse the use of chlorine with their systems for maximum effectiveness

SpaGuard TRIO




Soft Soak® TRIO™ makes spa care simple. The pre-measured packets eliminate the guesswork and the easy step numbers let you know exactly when to add them.

This system works to: Soften water, Clear water, Destroy impurities, Prevent scale, Prevent corrosion, Clean pipes and surface

TRIO was made for the spas that hold 350-450 gallons of water, which is the majority of spas in the market today. It is highly recommended for new spa owners.

A proprietary blend of softening agents creates a noticeably better experience.

The average spa user spends 15-30 minutes in the spa per soak. Make that time more enjoyable by soaking in water with elevated softness. The Soft Soak TRIO system creates a base level at fresh fill and then boosts the softness factor every week.

It removes major contaminants that make water cloudy so all you’ll see is your toes.

The weekly portion of the Soft Soak TRIO system removes the unseen, common contaminants that accumulate during hot tub use so your water stays sparkling clear and odor-free.

The last step ensures equipment also remains clean so TRIO can help prevent conditions that might diminish your enjoyment of the spa.
