Save $100 Or More On Chemicals With Our Step-By-Step Water Chemistry Guides

"How much shock and chlorine or bromine should I put in? Why is the pH always high or low? Why can't I keep my chlorine reading steady?"

Hot tub water chemistry is tough to master if you don't know where to start. In this course, we walk you through which chemicals you need—and which ones you don't. We even provide you with chemical dosing charts so you'll always know how much to add without second-guessing.
And that means you'll save hundreds of dollars a year by not buying too much of the wrong chemicals!

"This is your one stop shop for everything hot tub."

I searched all over the internet trying to educate myself on hot tubs and hot tub upkeep. Then I found Swim University and their handy Hot Tub Handbook and Video Course. This is your one stop shop for everything hot tub. I am looking forward to showing off all my new skills to my neighbors.
Todd Cofer
The Hot Tub Handbook and Video Course has been very helpful to me. I knew nothing about which chemicals to use or how often to check the water. I'm looking forward to keeping it in excellent condition with as few chemicals as possible. I also love that you send future updates without charging for them.
