Salt Water System Maintenance
Maintenance varys between brands, but let’s use the ultra-popular Freshwater Salt System for our example. This system is found on high end Hot Spring and Caldera Spa models. Although the system regulates chlorine on its own, environmental factors mean the system needs adjustment around every 10 days. A handy control panel prompts you to dip a test strip in the tub and adjust the salt system accordingly.
Other than simple routine adjustment, the system runs off of disposable cartridges that last 4 months. So with three cartridges and routinely adjusting your system, you can avoid having to drain and refill your water for up to a year!
