Swim Spa Enzyme Treatments

“I just wanted to share how much I like Waters Choice. My swim spa stays crystal clear and there's no nasty chlorine/chemical odor. Simple, simple, simple to use! Great Results!” Donna

Our 4 oz. Swim Spa Enzyme Concentrate is formulated for swim spas 1,200 gallons or more. This little bottle is a super concentrated formula that will last 6 months. To get your swim spa started off right, add 1 bottle of our Pure Enzymes for SWIM SPAS. One full bottle of Pure Enzymes for SWIM SPAS will take care of your swim spa for the first month. After that, you can continue to add 1 full bottle of Pure Enzymes for Swim Spas every month thereafter, or you can switch to the 4 oz. Swim Spa Enzyme Concentrate and add one capful every week.



Swim Spas are a cross between a pool and a spa. This means the temperatures, gallons, and use are different.  Therefore, the type of water treatment and how you maintain your swim spa will also be different.
Swim spas have very long water lines in the plumbing system. If a water line is closed off, the water in that line will get stagnant and gunk will start to build up. To prevent this from happening, it is very important to make sure there is good water flow through all the water lines when not in use.
Tip: Make sure you center your diverter valves
and open water falls or spouts when you get out of your swim spa to ensure your plumbing lines do not get gunk buildup.
Only Drain and Refill your Swim Spa Every 3-5 Years,

Full Startup Instructions

Welcome to Waters Choice. Thank you for choosing our water treatment system. You will now be enjoying your swim spa in a healthy, clean environment without all the hassle! These instructions were written to address the day to day use of Waters Choice enzymes and the potential challenges.

Starting up.

You can use your existing water regardless of the chemical system you used previously. If your swim spa is running on a Salt Generator, you can turn your generator to the lowest setting.

For the first 6 weeks - CLEAN YOUR FILTERS WEEKLY with a pressure nozzle on your garden hose.

Test your pH and Alkalinity using a standard test strip, balance as needed. Also, make sure your Calcium Hardness is at your swim spa manufacturers recommended level. We prefer the calcium level lower than normal. Now add your first month’s enzymes - 1 bottle of the 12 oz. PURE ENZYMES for SWIM SPAS. After the first month, you will continue to add 1 full bottle of PURE ENZYMES for SWIM SPAS or switch to the Waters Choice SWIM SPA ENZYME CONCENTRATE (little blue bottle with white cap) and add 1 capful every week. If you continue using the Swim Spa Enzyme Concentrate, you will NOT need to use the 12 oz. bottle of PURE ENZYMES for SWIM SPAS again, even if you drain and refill your swim spa. Along with the enzymes, follow recommended label rates of Waters Choice Sanitizer.

Frequently Asked Questions:
My spa went cloudy after we started on Waters Choice.

It’s common for swim spas to go cloudy when starting with Waters Choice enzymes. This can be caused by several issues but most commonly it is organics from the swim spa plumbing being loosened up into your water. We recommend adding 1 TABLESPOON. of Sanitizer every other time you use your swim spa when this condition occurs to ensure that there are no harmful bacteria present during the startup process. It will typically clear up in 2 - 3 weeks when the Waters Choice enzyme system is set up in the spa.

My Water has an odor.

As the enzymes break down organics carbon dioxide is created and gets trapped between the cover and the water which can give your swim spa a musty smell. Most of the time this will go away after the cover has been opened for a minute or two. If the smell sticks around longer than that, check the filter by giving it a sniff. If you smell the odor in the filter soak in a solution of bleach water, (about 1 cup/filter in the water it takes to cover the filter), then rinse. Also check that you don’t have the smell in the pillows and cover. If you do, rinse with the same bleach solution.

I have a green tint in my water.

Most of the time water that is clear with a tint of green is from algae. There are a couple of ways to take care of this. 1. Check your waters for phosphates, they are a food source for algae and could be the cause of the problem. 2. Increase the amount of chlorine you are adding.

I have small particles floating in my water.

Because swim spas have long lines of plumbing, it is possible for buildup to occur and the enzymes will release these buildups into the water. One method of minimizing this problem is to make sure all the jets are open to ensure water flow during filter cycles. When you are in your swim spa, run the pumps on high speed and flush all the lines thoroughly.

My cover is slimy.

Enzymes are breaking down organics that are on the surface. Wipe your cover down with a mild water and bleach solution.
