The results of using Genesis BLU FUSION technology in your spa are immediate and stunning. When free of contaminants, your spa’s water will be clear, soft, and amazingly brilliant. BluWater Technology devotes all of its efforts to eliminating dry skin, pungent chemical smells, and the unsightliness of tablet feeders and poorly managed water. What will happen when you use Genesis BLU FUSION Technology in your spa? ...no more hassle, just sparkling clean water!
Be certain you start with a clean spa. It must be free of solids and other residues that can accumulate on the sides and/or around the jets. It is also important to only use spa cleaning products that have no phosphates since phosphates will hinder Bromine production. Always start your spa with a clean spa filter before filling your spa with water.
If the water source is well water or a non-municipal water source, you should have your water tested for “TDS” Total Dissolved Solids. Water with high TDS is likely to have higher metal content and will need a metal remover to decrease the metals and help ensure a successful start. This test can be done by your local spa dealer. The ideal range for your start-up TDS is between 50 and 300 PPM - mg/L. If TDS from your source water is above 500 PPM, a metal remover is strongly recommended.
1. Using your PURE FILL Pre-Filter, fill your spa with water to the recommended level and DO NOT FILLWITH WATER FROM A RESIDENTIAL WATER SOFTENER.
2. Before starting the BLU FUSION system, balance your water chemistry to ensure a successful start up. Ideal ranges are as follows:
- pH (7.2-7.8)
- Alkalinity (80-120)
- Calcium Hardness (150-250)
- Phosphates (less than 30 PPB)
Use the phosphate test kit included with your Genesis System. Bromine production will be significantly reduced if phosphate levels are high. If phosphate levels are high purchase a phosphate remover and follow the directions accordingly. Any
phosphates in your spa will reduce Bromine levels.
3. Determine the level of “NaBr” (Sodium Bromide) required for your spa size. NaBr should be addedat a rate of 1.2lbs per 100 gallons or 1300-1500 PPM. Note. For Swim Spas or Spas greater than 1200 gallons add at a rate of 2lbs per 100 gallons or 2000 PPM.
Example: For a 500 gallon spa add approximately 6lbs of NaBr. 1.2 lbs x (5) 500 gallons = 6lbs NaBr.
4. Turn Jets on high speed, broadcast the NaBr across the surface of the water to help evenly distribute the NaBr into the spa and let circulate for 30 minutes.
5. Test the Sodium Bromide concentration with the TRU BLU NaBr test kit. If you have added the correctamount of NaBr, you should have a reading between 1300-1500PPM.
6. Adjust the filtration time to circulate a minimum of 8 hours every 24 hours on a 2 speed pump.
7. For an average spa between 300-500 gallons we recommend starting at a power setting of “6” withthe “boost” feature depressed. This will accelerate the production of the bromine level for the first 8 hours.
8. Always keep your bromine level between 3-5 PPM. The spa size, filtration, and bather demand will determine what maintenance setting is required. Test your bromine level after 24 hours and adjust the power setting up or down depending on the bromine levels that are indicated. Adjusting more than 1 setting at a time will have a significant impact on the daily bromine output. These numbers on the power setting only reflect the measure of power to the system and are not related to the number of bathers using the spa.
