The problem

Correcting the pH in your spa is the first step in relieving any eye and skin irritation. Maintaining proper sanitizer levels will also relieve and prevent eye and skin irritation.

Recommended solutions

Adjust pH in the range of 7.2 - 7.6 (chlorine sanitizers) or 7.2 - 7.8 (bromine sanitizers).
Oxidize with HTH spa™ Non-Chlorine Oxidizer.
