Routine Hot Tub Care: What to Know
It is easy to lose track of a cleaning schedule for your hot tub or spa. In a warm, damp environment, even a bit of neglect can quickly lead to an influx of bacteria and even algae that will grow and spread. When caring for your water features, it is important to consider not only the water involved, but the spa cover, shell, spa filters and more.
Treating Your Water: The most common hot tub chemicals in use are usually chlorine or bromine. Without these, it is easy for bacteria to contaminate water, potential leading to illness. Regular balancing of chemical levels also eliminates the threat of algae, which is known to wreck materials. In the same way that not using enough chemicals can be a bad thing, too many chemicals can lead to skin and eye irritations, so it is important to apply just the right amount for the size and style of your pool.
Treating Your Hot Tub Shell: If you are beginning to notice a bit of slime or residue building up on your tub walls or floor, regular cleaning products are not the thing to reach for. Harsh chemicals can wear away at protective coatings and cause unexpected damage. Residue is often caused by items that wash off in water. From hair products to sunscreen and body oils, there are tons of items that will leave a residue behind, usually hovering around the water line.
Treating Your Accessories: There isn’t much point in cleaning water, only to throw a dirty cover back on and have it contaminate your water all over again. Anything that enters your water should be fully cleaned on a regular basis. From covers to floating filter baskets and even pool toys – don’t think that that rubber ducky isn’t full of bacteria!
