Can I use Lotus Clean Basic and Lotus Clean Shock in salty water? Is it true that salt water reduces the number of germs and that less water care product is then needed? If so, how much salt should I use for the amount of water in a 2400 litre bath tub?
You can use Lotus Clean in salty water. Lotus Clean Basic and also Lotus Clean Shock work in salty water.
However, it is not true that the salty water reduces the germ count. This may still work to some extent in seawater. There the salt content is 3.5% and more. In pools and whirlpools, the salt content is about 0.3 to 0.5%. This salt is used in conjunction with an electrolysis unit to produce chlorine from the salt (sodium chloride). The chlorine produced in this way kills germs. Not the salt. Some people find the salty water more pleasant on the skin. However, this is not necessary when using Lotus Clean products because the water is very pleasant and soft to the skin due to the Lotus Clean products.
It should also be noted that salty water can lead to corrosion of metal parts (pumps, heating, nozzles) more quickly.
