    Hot Tub Spa Ionizer with three elements
    Ukko Hot Tub Spa Ionizer with three elements
    The ionizer electrodes have a small DC voltage applied to them which forces copper, silver, and zinc ions to pass from one electrode to the other.  The ions are caught up in the water as water passes between the electrodes.  The silver ions attack and kill any bacteria or viruses in your spa. The Copper ions kill algae and the Zink ions destroy body fat which are the main reason that the water in most spas does not sparkle.

    What is different about a Ukko Ionizer?

    The electrodes are made of a custom made copper, silver, and zinc alloy designed for water treatment and are four times larger than most spa ionizers so our electrodes last longer and the replacement electrodes are a better value. Other ionizers use just copper only, or  just copper and silver, which is not as effective as our three metal electrodes. All our hot tubs come Ionizer ready so if you decide to get one later on, there’s no need to re-plumb your tub!

    START UP DIRECTIONS – for spas & hot tubs

    FEATURES & BENEFITS:
    • No chemical odours (Chlorine/ Bromine Free)
    • Pleasant spa environment
    • Simple to convert
    • Suitable for asthmatics & those with chlorine sensitivity
    • Just follow three easy steps
    Spa Hot Tub Startup Procedure: Since dust, dirt and plastic residue can exist in your new spa following manufacture, we recommend you clean the spa prior to use. This can be done by filling the spa with water, removing the filter cartidges, adding 50ml of Poppit Spa Pipe Degreaser and circulating through the pipes (Turning the blowers on and off several times). After circulating for 30 – 60 minutes, dump spa water, wipe out inside with damp cloth and rinse off.

    Step 1. Clear the water

    Quck FixWater as supplied by the water authorities has chlorine included and so this needs to be eliminated if we are to have a chlorine free spa. Simply use Quick Fix at the rate of 60 grams per 1000 litres of spa water and filter for 4 hours. This will oxidise the chlorine and any other unwanted matter in the water. Note: Rain water and bore water also needs to be treated.

    Step 2. Balance the water

    Using a water test kit or test strip, check the pH, alkalinity and calcium hardness levels of the water. The pH should be around 7.4 – 7.6 to be comfortable for people with sensitive skin. Total alkalinity should be between 80 – 120pp. If necessary, adjust these two levels using Water Balance to increase the level or pH Decreaser to reduce them. Calcium levels that are lower than 100ppm can be damaging to equipment, as well as making it difficult to maintain pH levels and ultimately cause the water to go cloudy. Rain water is predictably low in calcium. Ideal levels for calcium hardness are between 100 and 200 ppm. To increase calcium levels use Poppit Spa cal hardener as per label directions.

    Step 3. Sanitise the water

    The water is now clear of contaminants and balanced and all that needs to be done is to sanitise the water with Spa Poppit – Conditioner, bactericide and clarifier at the rate of one litre per 1000 litres of spa water. That’s All – It’s that simple!
