Beachcomber Protect (1.7 kg) - Calcium Hardness Increaser

SKU: RC 1449879



Product Details

PROTECT™ helps protect hot tub equipment and parts from etching by increasing the calcium level of hot tub water. Maintain a proper calcium hardness (CH) level of 150 – 200 ppm which will prevent corrosion or calcium hardness.

  • Calcium Hardness is a measure of the amount of calcium present in the hot tub water.
  • Raises calcium hardness
  • Protects hot tub equipment
  • Prevents unwanted foam
  • Prevents etching

  • Test and Adjust Calcium Hardness to 150-200 ppm with Test Strips.
  • Add 15 g of Protect per 1000 L of water to raise Calcium Hardness by 10 ppm

What to do?
  • Increase Calcium Hardness with Beachcomber Protect.
  • Decrease Calcium Hardness with dilution or adding water of a lesser hardness.
  • Areas with high Calcium Hardness may require water from the home’s water softening system or trucked in water with a low Calcium Hardness level.

Typical problems when the Calcium Hardness level is out of range:
  • Water with a low Calcium Hardness level is corrosive and damaging to the equipment in a hot tub.
  • Water with high Calcium Hardness level tends to form scale on the surface of the hot tub and on the heater element, and makes the water feel gritty to the touch. Hard water is often the cause of two problems. The first, and less costly is that scaling can occur which causes the hot tub’s surfaces to feel rough. The second and more costly problem is that hard water can significantly impair the heating ability of the hot tub heater element. Calcium is such an excellent insulator that the scaling of Calcium onto a copper heater element can, over a short period reduce the efficiency by up to 50%. Think of a large seashell – made of solid Calcium, they perfectly insulate and protect these ocean-dwelling organisms at deep, cold levels.
