As a new spa owner, the thought of chemical programs and treatments can be overwhelming. The Silk Balance program eliminates so many variables and simplifies the process. I basically use two products in my hot tub and have sparkling odor-free water, while minimizing the use of chlorine. Plus, Silk Balance has the added bonus of making our skin feel great! Many times I have been amazed at the balancing properties of Silk Balance, especially after expecting problems after a teen age birthday party. I am really glad that I started out on Silk Balance!
