In respect to this, can I put well water in my hot tub?
If you are filling your hot tub with well water, you will need to make sure that the minerals present in the water will not cause staining or damage to your hot tub. Add Eliminate to the water to prevent this from happening.
Subsequently, question is, how do I adjust the hardness of my spa water? If your hot tub's calcium hardness level drops below the recommended 150 ppm the easiest and most common way to raise calcium hardness is by adding a calcium hardness increaser such as calcium chloride to your hot tub.
In respect to this, is it safe to swim in hard water?
Hard water can cause damage to your pool and result in white residue left on ladders, pool decks and other surfaces. This is known as "scaling" and is the result of calcium hardening on a surface. According to Pool Center, water balance is a term used to describe water that is neither scaling nor corrosive.
How do you lower water hardness?
We first have to remove the mineral from the water before we can effectively lower the pH. To soften hard water, you need to take the mineral out with a natural "water softener" such as Sera Super Peat. Another option is to use demineralized water for your fish tank.
