During the thirteen years of owning our hot tub, we have tried numerous water treatment products (chlorine, bromine, another low maintenance product that failed miserably), and have never found anything that was satisfactory until we were introduced to Silk Balance by Lifestyles in Burton. Previous products left the water cloudy and scummy. After using Silk Balance for six months, we have found the water to be as clean and inviting as if it had just been changed. We never have a chlorine or bromine smell on our skin, and the dry skin feeling has disappeared. We have highly recommended Silk Balance to other hot tub owners! This is a product that does what it claims.
