DRAINING AND REFILLING YOUR SPA

To prevent TDS rising above 15 000ppm, drain the spa periodically. There is no rule of thumb, but every for to six weeks is advisable. The following formula can also be use as a guide to when to drain your SPA.

SPA (volume in litres)

Divided by 12

EXAMPLE: 1000Lt / 4 bathers / 12 = 25 days between draining
