Ace Salt Water Sanitizing System
The ACE® system contains a special diamond electrode that automatically creates five different powerful and effective cleaners for your hot tub from just a small amount of salt and your spa’s water. When the diamond electrode is energized, it breaks apart water molecules to create active oxygen. Active oxygen is one of the world’s most effective natural cleaners and is the first way the ACE system automatically cleans the water. The active oxygen then combines with salt and other elements in the water to create chlorine and three other powerful oxidizers.
AUTOMATED AND MORE HANDS-FREE
Since the ACE system automatically generates cleaners, you’ll have fewer bottled products to measure and pour. This more hands-free approach saves you time, so it’s easier than ever to care for your Hot Spring® spa. To get started, just add the appropriate amount of salt to balanced water. Using the easy-to-navigate menus on the spa’s main control panel, enter your spa’s size and your expected use level. Simply check the sanitizer level regularly with a test strip, and confirm your use level monthly. A status message on the control panel lets you know that the ACE system is cleaning the water so you can relax.
The ACE system generates the precise amount of cleaners your Hot Spring spa requires based on its size and your use level. Since there are no excess chemicals, which often occurs with manual dosing, your spa water should last longer between changes. That conserves water and saves you money. When you do drain your spa, the water has less impact on the environment because only salt has been added to the balanced water.
LOOKS, FEELS AND SMELLS GREAT
The ACE salt water sanitizing system leaves your spa water sparkling clean and silky soft. The cleaners are generated from salt and water, so you’re less likely to experience the dry itchy skin, irritated red eyes, or harsh odor of traditional chlorine water care.
HOW IS THE ACE SYSTEM DIFFERENT FROM A TRADITIONAL SALT WATER SYSTEM?
Traditional salt water systems use titanium electrodes capable of producing only chlorine. The ACE system uses a unique solid diamond electrode along with two titanium electrodes. The patented diamond electrode increases the sanitizing power, while using less salt, and generates 5 different cleaners instead of just chlorine.
HOW DOES THE ACE SYSTEM USE DIAMOND TECHNOLOGY TO GENERATE CLEANERS?
The diamond electrode in the ACE system generates high energy active oxygen from water. The active oxygen is the first way the ACE system cleans the water. Once the water is clean, the active oxygen combines with just a little bit of salt to produce 4 more cleaners –chlorine as well as ozone, hydrogen peroxide, and MPS. (Note that MPS generation is dependent on having pH down present in the water.)
CAN I ADD THE ACE SALT WATER SANITIZING SYSTEM TO A HOT SPRING SPA I ALREADY OWN?
The ACE system is currently an option for Hot Spring spas built on or after August 5, 2009. Contact your local Hot Spring dealer to find out if your Hot Spring spa is compatible with the ACE system.
