Can I put water softener salt in my hot tub?
Considering this, can you put salt water in a hot tub?
The good news is yes, you can! Salt-water systems can safely be used in hot tubs, and have the same benefits that they do in pools. Fans of salt water systems report that they are cheaper in the long run, result in softer skin, make it easier to balance the pH of the water and are easier to maintain!
Regarding this, is it OK to fill a hot tub with softened water?
Water from a home softener is not properly balanced for hot tubs, however, so if you must fill your hot tub with a softened water supply, you'll need to harden it up with treatments before it causes any problems.
The most common salinity required is 2,500 ppm but refer to the manufacturers instructions and guidelines for your specific salt system. The amount of salt is really low and works out to about 2 pounds for every 100 gallons but be sure not to add too much otherwise you will have to empty some water and refill.
