What Is AquaFinesse ?
AquaFinesse is a revolution in water management, an easy to use one-step water care product for hot tubs and swimming pools. Made from a complex mixture of inorganic salts, coagulants, and other environmentally friendly ingredients, it comes in liquid form for hot tubs, or in a puck form for swimming pools and swim-spas. Adding one simple dose per week is all that's required to clean your hot tub or pool.

- Easy, quick and convenient, the true one-step system.
- Pure, clean, and crystal clear water.

- Hygienic and safe: free of harmful chemicals, AquaFinesse cleans your spa from the inside out! It reconditions both your spa water as well as the equipment by eliminating the threat of contamination and harmful effects on your health.
- Proactive: AquaFinesse not only captures existing bacteria disposing it in the filter(s), but the proactive formula also prevents potential growth and further development of microorganisms.

Calcium build-up in jets, on hot tub walls, in the heater can cause can irreversible damage. AquaFinesse gets destroys calcium. In time, your hot tub equipment, plumbing, and jets will be rid of calcium build up and render your equipment more productive again. It won’t stop the damage already caused but it will certainly help your spa last much longer and keep your new components looking like new. Say goodbye to that nasty water line with AquaFinesse and enjoy your spa once again. For those in super high calcium areas, we recommend soaking your filters with AquaFinesse Filter Cleaning Tablets on a monthly basis to remove excess calcium from your filter(s) and use a Stain and Scale Control when you first fill, in cold water.
Good filtration is the key to having clean water in all pools and spas. Knowing that cartridge filters filter 100 times better than sand, they are almost always the choice for building hot tubs. Swimming pools are usually sold with sand filters but we recommend changing your swimming pool filter to cartridge if you want to stop unnecessary backwashing, save over 10,000 gallons of heated and treated water each year and obtain a much cleaner water overall.
For those of you with an existing spa, you have surely endured the long process of cleaning your filters. Switching to AquaFinesse will change the way you see filter cleaning. The solution will naturally help the break down of nasty build up of junk on filters and will actually make them function much better. Since AquaFinesse eliminates the need for harsh and damaging chemicals, your filters will actually last much longer.
Weekly rinsing followed by monthly use of our AquaFinesse Filter Cleaning Tablets is recommended to ensure proper filtration while reducing the need for any other chemicals. It's so easy to use, our tablets will remove calcium and oil. Simply drop 2 tablets in a 20 litre pail and let your filters soak for 1 hour.
Having clean water means using clean filters. If your vacuum bag is full, it just doesn’t work! Same goes for water filters i hot tubs.
We recommend the use of regular pleated filters over disposable ones. This allows you to clean and rinse them weekly instead of simply throwing them out and will save you over $300 per year!
How It Works
Until now, all maintenance products were made to fix problems caused by contamination of the water by the bathers: bacteria, body oils, germs, calcium. It was necessary to use many different products to try to clean them up such as using a defoamer to remove foam caused by oils, stain and scale control to try to limit the amount of calcium build up, salt systems to try to keep the water from causing dry and itchy skin, alkalinity buffers and acids to balance the levels, etc.
Most bacteria, introduced in the water phase by humans, stay in suspension and are killed from using high levels (3 to 5 ppm) of Bromine, Chlorine, Copper or many other biocides. The problem is that many other contaminates will attach themselves to surfaces and become biofilm, a living and breathing microorganism that cannot be broken down with the low levels of biocide we use in hot tubs and swimming pool water. To do so, those levels would need to be significantly higher and impossible to sustain without harmful effects to humans. This would also cause serious damage your pool and spa equipment and have huge side effects to the environment.
Knowing that this is the major cause of all water problems, the AquaFinesse team developed a formula that simply breaks down biofilm and calcium and removes them. By adding AquaFinesse weekly to your spa or swimming pool, the solution will immediately start to remove these formations inside the plumbing and on all surfaces while at the same time, removing new bacteria, calcium, body oils, and organic contaminants. AquaFinesse will simply coagulate them and flush it all through the filter(s).
Now that the cleaning is done, less sanitizer is required. This slows down the negative effects of having too much chlorine or bromine and keeps your water sanitized. Rinsing your filter/s weekly will remove and flush everything out. A very complex product with a very simple task, removing the causes of all water issues, leaving your water clean, clear, and pure instead of a very hard to manage chemical soup!
Chlorine is still by far the best and cheapest way to sanitize your water. Available in liquid, powder, crystals and puck form, it’s easy to manage and most quality products will dissolve almost completely leaving very little chloramines in the water phase. Since most users only require 1 or 2 tablets at a time, the levels are much lower with less side effects on your skin and equipment. As an added benefit, the AquaFinesse special formula eliminates having to shock weekly. Knowing that most cities use chlorine to keep your drinking water safe, we are quite happy to promote and use it with the AquaFinesse system. Health Canada and the National Pool & Spa Institute recommend keeping a level of chlorine of 1.5 ppm in all swimming pools and spa waters.
Save Your Hot Tub/Pool
95% of all service calls on hot tubs and swimming pools are directly related to water chemistry. Even the most religious consumers when it comes to having the water tested and balanced have had to replace components and spend money fixing something that could have been prevented. Did you ever ask yourself what is in a bottle of Ph Reducer? We hear this everyday, consumers keep adding pH reducer to their hot tub water without knowing they are pouring acid directly into the water, destroying their hot tubs. Acid mixed with the high jet pressure will eat away your jets, destroy your head rests, make your spa cover waterlogged, eat away at the heater and heat exchangers, pump seals, and o’rings. It drives the alkalinity of the water too low to the point that they can’t even breathe when in their hot tub. AquaFinesse eliminates the use of multiple balancing products. Since we take care of the causes, we don’t need to worry about using acids in order to fight calcium problems. In time, jets, plumbing, heaters and practically all of the spa equipment will be cleaned and rid of calcium buildup and biofilm. Protect your investment don’t destroy it!
