DIY Watercolor Pillows!!

DIY watercolor pillows
“These abstract watercolor pillow covers were much faster and easier than any of those other projects so they are perfect for beginners.  The great thing about abstract art is it is impossible to mess up.  Plus you don’t even need actual watercolor paints to get that perfect watercolor look – just regular craft paint does the trick quite nicely.”

The Important Role of Hot Tub Chemicals!

The important role of hot tub chemicals

If you’ve been considering getting a hot tub, you no doubt are already well acquainted with all of the great reasons to get a hot tub: they are relaxing, they offer therapeutic benefits, they make your backyard a great party spot, and more! But the reality of owning a hot tub is this: They also come with some maintenance you’ll have to be prepared for. Learning how to add the right chemicals to your hot tub is very important.

In essence, the role of hot tub chemicals Canada hot tub owners need to know is that they reduce the likelihood that water-borne bacteria will grow in the water. These chemicals are specially designed for use in hot water and they also serve to keep the water clean and clear. Hot tubs are frequently vulnerable to the growth of harmful microorganisms.  Because of that, it’s absolutely imperative that hot tub owners learn how to effectively manage the growth of those organisms through the proper use of chemicals.

Hot tub chemicals are very effective at removing a variety of substances from hot tubs, such as:

Tanning lotion: If you or your guests get into the hot tub after a day out in the sun, any residual sunscreen that remains on your skin will inevitably end up in your hot tub water

Natural body oils, sweat etc:  It’s unavoidable. Humans have oils on their skin that will wash off into your hot tub, and with that will come natural bacteria.  

Calcium and lime deposits: Particularly if you have hard water, these substances can build up in your hot tub and clog the piping, which can be very disastrous as it can ruin the plumbing in your hot tub.

Whereas chlorine is typically the standard for sanitizing the water in swimming pools, this is not the best choice for keeping your hot tub clean and sanitized. This is mostly because of the high water temperature. Most experts recommend that hot tub owners use sodium bromide instead. Sodium bromide usually comes in the form of a tablet that can slowly release the chemical into the water at a safe and effective level. Adding chemicals to your hot tub water must be done regularly to achieve maximum effectiveness.  In fact, this is something that should really be done daily. Check the water first to determine its current pH level, and then add the right amount of chemicals to achieve the desired levels. In most cases, a desirable pH level is around 7.2 and 7.6. It should never go below 7.

If you own a hot tub or are considering getting one, it’s important to understand that you must take care of the water to ensure the proper functioning of your hot tub and the safety and health of everyone who uses it. With a bit of daily diligence and care, you and your friends and family can enjoy your hot tub all year round in comfort and safety.
