Drain & Start with fresh water


  • Start with a clean spa. Follow our Purge, Drain & Refill instructions for the best results.
  • Fill the Spa with the Pristine Fill tap water filter to remove 99.99% of contaminants.
  • KNOW THE SPA’S VOLUME.  Almost all “problem” arise from the fact that spa owners don’t know the proper gallonage of their ho tub. 
  • Make sure the water is in balance.  Water balance in a Pristine Blue® spa is a little different than in most spas.  Maintain these Pristine Blue® levels for the best in product effectiveness and efficiency.  The levels you need to attain are:
    pH - 7.2 to 7.6
    Total Alkalinity – 30 to 90 ppm (this is the most important difference)
    Calcium Hardness – 175 to 275 ppm
    ® Water Balancers and SpaGuard® Cleaners such as pH Increaser, Decreaser, Total Alkalinity Increaser, Spa Sentry, Calcium Hardness Increaser are 100% compatible with Pristine Blue®.  All cleaners & accessory chemicals such as Spa Silken are also 100% compatible.
  • Add 10 milliliters of Pristine Check® per 100 gallons of water. Circulate 2 to 4 hours.

  • Shock with 10 milliliters of Pristine Power® per 100 gallons. Circulate 2 to 4 hours.

  • Clean the Filter thoroughly.

  • Add 5 milliliters of Pristine Blue® per 100 gallons of water. Run filter one hour.

After each use of the spa, shock with (2 oz) of Pristine Power per 500 gallons.

Special note:   If the spa has been standing empty for any period of time without being treated, it is recommended that prior to filling the spa, add a spa plumbing line cleaner (such as Spa System Flush, Swirl Away, Spa Purge or AquaFinesse Spa Cleaner) to clean the spa's plumbing lines. Follow the label directions.  This will help provide a more successful experience - biofilms can build-up even when not being in use (Did you ever leave a thermos or cooler with a little bit of liquid in closed up for a period of time? Same problem).  A fill, treat, drain & refill is worth the extra time & effort.

For information on Converting a Biguanide (BaquaSpa® or Soft Soak®) Spa to Pristine Blue®, DRAIN THE WATER

Important Note:  DO NOT ADD ANY PRISTINE BLUE FOR THE NEXT 2 (TWO) WEEKS.  MAINTAIN pH 7.2 TO 7.6.  After 2 weeks, check Pristine Blue® level and top-up as needed.

** Special Note:
If using SpaGuard
® Spa Sentry, DO NOT balance the Calcium Hardness.  Spa Sentry will take care of this.  Also, DO NOT turn on the spa or hot tub's heater until the water has cleared through filtration or add Spa Sentry AFTER the water has reached its normal operating temperature.
