When managing a pool, it is easy to identify cloudy water or debris, but with darker hot tub shells or linings, it can be more difficult to tell. Some tubs are left unused for weeks or months at a time, while others are high traffic. When you are looking to maintain a hot tub, traffic is just one thing to consider, along with the age and condition of your space, and the type of plant life and debris that you deal with regularly. With so many moving parts, it is always better to leave hot tub care to the pros!
Pool & Spa Care: What to Watch Out For
Plenty of property owners are quick to take on their own hot tub cleaning in an attempt to cut costs or get a quicker timeframe. It seems simple to keep water clean but there is a whole lot more to it than meets the eye. As soon as you pull back that hot tub cover, you are met with a whole different eco-system with its own needs, such as pH and total alkalinity levels, as well as chemicals like chlorine or bromine. Balancing sanitizers is a complex but necessary part of pool ownership.
In addition to managing water chemistry, any hot tub owner must account for circulation systems as well. It is always a good idea to check hot tub filters, but there isn’t much point in doing that if you don’t know what you are looking for. There are plenty of parts of hot tub care that are in play at one time, but very few are as important as your filtration system. If your spa filters are not working, you will very quickly be overrun with bacteria and the health hazards that come along with it.
Professional hot tub cleaning services require more than a basic test kit or scrub brush. In addition to water testing, the cleaning services at Puddle Pools include inspection and cleaning of pool equipment, as well. Equipment can range from your spa cover to liner and spa filters. Basic spot treatments can mean skimming the surfaces of spa water but when you are in need of an in-depth cleaning, there is more to it than that.
Your Aldergrove Hot Tub Cleaning: Getting the Best Results
When you are choosing treatment options for your hot tub cleaning needs, it is important to create a routine. Depending on the level of traffic passing through your system, it might be best to consider weekly or bi-weekly basic cleaning treatments with an in-depth cleaning every month or so.
Simple cleans include balancing and treatment of spa water. If your water is imbalanced, Puddle specialists can provide chemical applications to sort it out. Inspections of circulation systems and equipment such as skimmer baskets can help to contribute to overall condition.
In-depth cleans often require lower water levels to get an angle on the condition of sides, stairs and other surrounding surfaces. Scrubbing can remove any algae or buildup, creating a safer space for guests, both from bacteria and from slips and falls.
Draining a hot tub involves more than pulling a plug and using a garden hose to refill the space. Inexperienced draining can lead to leaks, flooding and water damage. Instead of taking a chance, call a professional to get the job done right the first time.
