Message: Hi, What type of sanitizer do you recommend for the water in a cedar hot tub? We have a wood burning unit. Thanks, Lorraine Kenora, Ontario

If you don't want to spend much money, use the two part bromine method which uses a NaBr brine as part 1 and a pH neutralized MPS oxidizer as part 2.  Follow instructions on the bottles.  Avoid chlorine products.   Also note it is not the job of the sanitizer to keep the water clear.  That requires a filter system.  When metals are involved as is the case with a wood burning heater, you need to know that low pH water and soft water are corrosive to metals.  Keep the pH above 7.2 and keep the water hardness above 200 ppm.   Dieter
