Technically, the only chemical free hot tubs are ones that are drained after each use.
However, new technology has enabled hot tubs to come very close to being chemical free. Salt water hot tub systems such as the Onzen™ Natural Salt Water Care System from Arctic Spas come very close to eliminating traditional chemical use. Salt water systems use low levels of salt dissolved in the water to generate sanitizing agents within the hot tub plumbing. This automated system eliminates the use of traditional chlorine or bromine tablets, and reduces the amount of time needed to maintain safe clean hot tub water. All Arctic Spas models can be fitted with the Onzen salt water system.
Natural Hot Tub Chemicals – Really?
There are dozens of products that claim to be natural hot tub chemicals, but many are not what they claim. Ozone, silver ions, copper ions, enzymes, hydrogen peroxide, and hydroxyl radicals are just a few of these. Some of these substances are effective hot tub sanitizers but it depends on how they are used and how much they cost. Natural hot tub chemicals and traditional products are available at all Arctic Spas stores. We also offer a very advanced water treatment system that utilizes salt water and ozone to keep the hot tub water safe and crystal clear. We call it the Onzen™ Natural Salt Water Care System, and you can read more about it on our Onzen product page.
