Can Hot Tub Supplies and Pool Supplies Be Used Interchangeably?
If you have a hot tub, you know how imperative it is to keep them healthy and maintained.When you're visiting your local hot tub store and stocking up on your hot tub supplies, it’s important that you pick out the correct covers and cleaning agents. With spring on the way and swimming pool season following soon after, it’s a good idea to stock up on supplies for your pool and hot tub sooner rather than later. A Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, shopping for hot tub supplies is easy with our online hot tub store, or you can visit us, in person, in Markham or Newmarket.
As you shop for your swimming pool and hot tub in Toronto, differentiate your products, read on to learn why.
Pool and Hot Tub Covers
While pool covers and hot tub covers serve the same purpose, they cannot be used interchangeably. If you use a pool cover for your hot tub, it won't fit correctly, and it will result in poor insulation, dirt, and possible damage. Hot tub and pool covers are specifically designed for the size and model. To maintain the integrity of your pool or hot tub in Toronto, use the appropriate cover. If you're unsure about where to begin for custom-designed pool and hot tub covers, visit Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, your trusted local hot tub store.

If you've actually looked through the solutions you add to your pool and hot tub, you may notice that the chemicals are pretty similar. However, the concentration between hot tub and pool chemicals is dramatically different, and it's critical that you don't mix them. Hot tubs and swimming pools vary significantly in their water capacity so, unless you have an especially large hot tub in Toronto, a backyard swimming pool will almost always have significantly larger volume thus requiring a more intense concentration of maintenance chemicals.
If you try to use your swimming pool chemicals in your hot tub, the water chemistry will be significantly altered and potentially unsafe to be in. On the other hand, when hot tub chemicals are used in a swimming pool, they often end up wasted as pool owners don’t see any significant change in the water chemistry and composition. Essentially, the water volume, as well as the temperature, will cause either dramatic chemical reactions or not at all for your pool or hot tub. It's best to not waste your chemicals and keep your hot tub and pool supplies separated.
