    Hi Jan,

    Thank you for your message.

    The best way to adjust the water chemistry is to take a sample of the hot tub water to the retailer who sold you the Softub. They can give you a personalized prescription of what needs to be done to get your water into perfect balance.

    If the pH and alkalinity are high, you will need to use some Balance pH- to bring the alkalinity down. Typically a high alkalinity will cause the pH to be high as well. Getting the alkalinity back into the proper range will allow the pH to come down naturally. The amount of pH- is dependant on water volume and the alkalinity level. This is why it is best to have the water analysed by a professional pool retailer.

    Let me know if we can assist further.
