Bather Load

“Bather load” is the term used to describe the number of people using a spa, com­bined with the length of usage, and the fre­quency of usage. All these factors have a great effect on the spa water. The higher the bather load, the more chemicals need to be added and a longer filtration time will be needed.

An average bather load is 3 to 4 people, 15 minutes of usage, 3 times a week at 100 degrees. If your bather load exceeds these guidelines, and you experience water quality prob­lems, increase the amount of filter cleanings. If water quality is still not adequate, consult the advice of your Teddy Bear Pools & Spas Lab Consultant for additional chemical or system recommendations. Be sure to give them your bather load information.
