I just got the Gemoro Sparkle spa, and the manual that comes with it says to NOT use ammonia in it. What do you make of this, and what would you do?

In the interests of self protection, I would follow their instructions and not use any ammonia. It might react badly with some of the parts in the machine or with the solution they supplied/recommended. If you used ammonia and the machine broke, the company could use that as an excuse not to repair or replace it.
I would imagine most that use it either don''t have instructions not to, or, are taking the risk and using it anway.Date: 2/26/2007 5:32:17 PM
Really? But it seems like everyone here uses ammonia. My ultrasonic suggests dish soap. I would think that would leave a film.
Yes I do, and yes I tried it. I switch up what I use, normally between Dawn and the cleaning solution that came with it. Sometimes afterwards I give a final scrub with rubbing alcohol too. I have used Ammonia, but it''s rare. And I only use the US once or twice a week at most.Date: 2/26/2007 9:54:52 PM
Ellen, you have the GemOro too don''t you? I remember seeing a review of it you did, and you tried ammonia in it. Do you only use soap now, or do you use their solution?
I guess I''ll look for the ammonia free Mr. Clean, or until then I''ll just use dawn in it. Any recommendations for how much?

When I posted earlier, I couldn''t get to the box with my directions without waking someone up, but I really didn''t remember my instructions saying no ammonia. I don''t use it often anyway, as I have WG, and I don''t think it''s good for the Rhodium.
I just went and read over them again, and nowhere does it say on mine not to use ammonia.
p.s. I notice you said ''manual'', as in a little booklet? I just have a sheet folded a couple times...
Wow, that''s weird. I reread mine, the whole thing twice, just so I couldn''t miss it, and it''s not mentioned at all. I have no clue....Date: 2/27/2007 6:42:37 PM
It is just a folded paper, and mine actually says three times to not use ammonia or it will void the warranty. I went and bought ammonia and chlorine free Mr. Clean, so I think I''ll try that.
