This is the manufacturer’s description of the Nexa Spa Natural Chlorine Generator. We do not endorse or assume any responsibility for the accuracy of any statements made in the manufacturer’s description. Manuals & Notes at bottom of page.
Nexa Spa is simple to install in about 10 minutes, without tools or any modifications to your spa. It is completely compatible with ozone, and in fact enhances the water quality of ozonator-equipped spas. As with any system, properly balanced water is essential.
|The Salt System: recycles itself You’re probably wondering how often the salt needs to be replenished. One of the beauties of these systems is that as the hypochlorous acid is used up, the chlorine recycles back into salt. So with a salt chlorine generator, the salt only has to be topped off occasionally due to hot tub water splash out, and replenished when the water is changed. Very economical!|
Salinity Levels: lower than you think
When we think of saltwater, the ocean usually comes to mind. Seawater has a strong salty taste of course, and it can cause metal corrosion. So you might be wondering if salt systems are safe for spa equipment. Fortunately, the levels of salt used with Nexa Spa systems are very low by comparison, and safe for equipment.* The table below shows some approximate saline levels to give you a perspective:
|Salinity Comparison – parts per million|
|Ocean Water||35,000 ppm|
|Human Tears||9,000 ppm|
|Ability to Taste Salt||5,000 ppm|
|Modern Salt Pools||3,000 ppm|
|Nexa Spa System||1,500 ppm|
In fact, at 1500 ppm most people cannot even taste the salt. The salinity and chlorine levels are easy to check.
Dead Sea Minerals: a better salt
Your choice of salts is very important. Common table salt, rock salt and ice-melt contain anti-caking agents and other additives and impurities which can foul the electrode plates of a chlorinator, so avoid those types.
|The Dead Sea contains many naturally occurring minerals, some found in no other sea, lake or ocean. Dead Sea mineral baths have been recognized since ancient times to impart a relaxed feeling. They nourish the skin and invigorate the circulatory system, while easing discomforts, everyday aches and pains and muscle soreness. They can turn your spa into a backyard oasis.
Your home spa is the perfect place for you to combine the many benefits of Dead Sea Minerals together with modern salt system technology.
