How do I use it?


Pour the correct amount of AquaGarde (as indicated on the table on the bottle) into the water
Activate the jets to mix AquaGarde into the water
After 2 minutes of water circulation, the hottub is ready for use
Ensure your Ozonator or UV-C lamp is working (please refer to manufacturer’s instructions). Insert 1 filter cleaning tablet into the Slow Release Dispenser, hold it under water in the hottub for 20 seconds to release air bubbles and place on top of the filter in the debris tray or basket (if you have two filters, put in the one that filters continuously)
Repeat the treatment once per week
Clean your filter every week
AquaGarde ensures pure and clean water by inhibiting bacterial growth, so you do not have to worry about bacteria multiplying in your hottub. Should any bacteria arrive from an outside source into the water they will not multiply and they will be destroyed by the Ozonator (or the UV-C lamp) or when passing through the filter where a cleaning tablet is slowly released.

AquaGarde causes the bacteria to coagulate. The bacteria will be attached to each other in much bigger molecules and will be caught in the filter and stay there. We recommend that you maintain your filters absolutely clean, with a single cleaner tablet (per week) placed in the Slow Release Dispenser on top of the hottub filter. You must also wash and clean your filter on a weekly basis. It is best to work with two sets of filters, leaving one set to dry for a week before replacing it in the hottub.

How to look after your filters

When using AquaGarde, it is extremely important to keep the filters clean at all times. Hot tubs are equipped with filters to maintain the water at its highest quality, as a piece of debris enters the tub it will end up in the filter and remain there until it is removed when cleaning the filter.

Unfortunately, with many hot tub chemicals, debris often stick to the surface of the hot tub and in the piping and never reach the filter in the first place. The layer of debris thickens over time, decreasing the water quality and potentially damaging your hot tub equipment.

With AquaGarde you will enable your filters to truly do the job they were intended for. AquaGarde loosens the debris from the surfaces and ensures that all debris is brought to the filter, where it should be, so that you can clean it out.

As a general rule, the more debris ends up in your filter, the cleaner the water is. It is therefore extremely important to keep your filters clean so they can function at their highest capacity at all times.

When cleaning your filter, ensure you rinse and brush every fold. Then soak the filter in detergent (alternatively some people put their filter in the dishwasher, with the filter detergent in the soap compartment). Once the filter is clean, leave it until it is completely dry.

We recommend having two sets of filters, to ensure that one set has time to dry, while the other set is in use.

When starting with a new AquaGarde kit, the filters should be changed every 3 days (or more often if required) during the first 10 days to ensure perfect water.

Improper water balance can seriously damage your hottub's operating equipment (heaters, pumps etc.)
... and your health - irritation of eyes, of airways and of skin

Consistent concerns about the quality of the water and its effect on the health of your family.
