Someday I plan to have my very own hot tub or maybe a pool. I will need to learn how to take care of it. I know you add chemicals to the pool and hot tub to keep it clean. Many of my friends have hot tubs and they put in a tablespoon of some kind of chemical every time they use it. If you are not sure or want to know how your water is doing whether it has a ton of bacteria you can bring a sample to the Mesa County Health Department for testing.

It is important to keep your water free from bacteria you don't want to get sick or suddenly have rashes all over your body. The good news is when you go to public pool officials from the health department always check the public pools for bacteria.
