How to use Hydrogen Peroxide in your Hot Tub or Swimming Pool
Chlorine has been getting a bad reputation over the years. It has been the gold standard in water sanitation for pools and hot tubs for decades. The use of hydrogen peroxide in swimming pools and hot tubs has been growing in popularity and many people now prefer hydrogen peroxide over chlorine.
For both swimming pools and hot tub usage, you want to keep your hydrogen peroxide levels around 30 to 100 PPM (parts per million). Depending on the size of your hot tub or swimming pool you’ll need to add the appropriate amount. You need around 1 cup of 35% Hydrogen Peroxide per 500 gallons of water. You can test the peroxide levels by using test strips.
