At Aquarian Body Harmonics, it is our goal to bring our guests the best spa experience possible. One way of accomplishing this goal is in improving our way of doing things. People love the hot tub. To feel the warmth of the water enveloping your body in a big warm hug. However, for some people with skin sensitivity, this can be an unpleasant experience, sometimes causing adverse reactions to chemicals in the average pool or spa. Standard chlorine and/or bromine require several other chemicals to stabilize them and then there are foaming agents and the list goes on. All of these chemicals are added just to prolong the life of the bathing water. Filtration systems are top of the line now even in the lower end units and this helps with removing solid wastes and proteins in the water. However, the chemical issue is becoming a real problem Not only in the aspect of bathing is a soup of chemicals not appealing, but also the environmental impact of where does that water go?
We have addressed all of these issues, and have been concerned about first and foremost the health of our clients, but also the health of the land that we are entrusted to care for and live on. As you may or may not know, Aquarian Body Harmonics is located in a private residence and the beginnings of a working farm. So it is important for us to know where the water is going and how will it effect the foliage and the ground.
We believe we have come up with a solution to accommodate both guests and residents! SALT WATER HOT TUB! We had already made the change to salt water in the tub, but we were still having to add bromine and sometimes shock tables. We were not happy with the results. The only way the water could remain clean is to do frequent water changes. Living in No California in fifth year of a drought, that made no sense to us either. So I did some research and found a unit that was not too costly and would actually save money in the long run plus allow us to use the spa as a salt water spa without getting a new tub or doing a costly conversion. It is called a chlorine generator. It takes the salt in the water and splits the salt molecule into sodium and chlorine (chloride) which sanitizes the water, then it reattaches the molecules back to sodium-chloride (salt). When we found this product we knew we had to move in that direction! It only takes about 2 cups of salt per 100 gallons for the unit to work. However we use a little more than that in our tub, since we are using it for more reasons than just keeping the tub clean. The type of salt we put in the tub is NOT ordinary pool salt. We use only Hemalayan Pink Salt. The only other thing we ad to our tub water is Epsom Salts, or Magnesium Sulfate. If you have ever taken an Epsom salt bath after a sprain or a work out you will know why.

The feeling of salt water on the skin is luxurious. It works on many levels in the body. Usually the most noticeable effect is that on the skin, immediately making it feel soft, smooth and supple. One reason for this is, the micro crystals of salt in the water increase the friction of the water on the skin creating an exfoliating effect. Often salt bathing is used to treat some health discomforts. For thousands of years people have know the benefits of bathing is sea water, and modern man is no different. For those who have soaking tubs at home, a salt soak can be an uplifting experience.
We call our saltwater tubs, "Mineral Infussed" because we don't just add pool salt to our tubs, we add Pink Hemelayan salt and Epsom salt.
