Lambton Shores Hot Tub Maintenance

Having a hot tub on your property is a great way to add value and personality to any home or commercial space. A tub or spa can be a great way to host guests, relax after a long day or add value and curb appeal to any space. It is easy to list all of the pros of having a hot tub but there is one very big con that comes along with it: keeping it clean! Hiring professional Lambton Shores hot tub maintenance services means getting the best results without doing any of the hard work yourself. 

Cleaning your hot tub is not a simple one-step process. You might be able to take basic cleaners and a scrub brush to a bathtub but trying this with a spa can lead to serious damage. Harsh chemicals will damage protective coatings while hard bristle brushes and heavy-handed tools like pressure washers can cause serious — and expensive — damage! Don’t struggle with an amateur approach or find yourself having to deal with the aftermath of a DIY disaster when you can call a local Puddle expert instead. 

Proper Hot Tub Care: A Multi-Step Approach 

Just because your system is full of warm water doesn’t mean that it is clean. Damp, dark and warm environments are the ideal place for algae growth and bacteria. It is tough to see what is going on beneath a spa cover and that is why it is best to apply a routine training program that keeps your water systems clean and running smoothly. It is easy to get caught up focusing on the condition of hot tub water, forgetting about the rest but without in-depth treatments this will only make a superficial improvement. 

In order to get the best results it is important to break the cleaning process down into multiple steps, including: 

Water Treatments: Anyone can stock up on basic test strips for your spa water but using them properly takes a lot of practice. Luckily, Puddle technicians are ready and able to test and balance water according to the unique needs of your space. In addition to balancing sanitizer levels like chlorine or bromine, it is important to balance pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium as well. 

Debris Removal: When dealing with debris in a spa, it isn’t as simple as just flipping the switch on a pool vacuum. Because these spaces are smaller and have seats and steps inside, it is too difficult for a robotic cleaner to navigate. Instead, the best way to get rid of debris is with a speciality handheld vacuum. These tools will suck up items from seats and flooring while spa filters will catch the rest. 

Filter Checks: The key to a clean hot tub is to clean the filter. Spas normally use cartridge fillers to trap and hold bits and pieces of debris. Over time, unwanted items will build up, creating clogs and making it more difficult for water to pass through. This means using more energy, higher utility bills and forcing circulation systems to work harder. This means added strain on your pool pump that will reduce its lifespan and lead to premature repairs and replacements. Keeping your filter cleaner improves output, reduces running costs and prolongs the lifespan of your water systems. 

Deep Cleans: Even with a routine cleaning plan in place, it is important to make deep cleans a part of your annual maintenance routine. A system refresh can help to maintain condition or it can help to restore a neglected water system back to being sanitary and useful. This process involves applying a multi-step chemical program to tubs that are full and running. This specially created combination of hot tub chemicals runs though internal lines loosening any buildup that has formed inside and pushing it back into the main basin. It is then time to drain and clean your tub. Once empty, shells, jets and headrests can be scrubbed clean. The next step is then to refill the hot tub, which can be done with a garden hose. Attempting to drain the hot tub with an amateur approach can lead to drowned lawns, flooded basements and other unexpected damage. When you are in the market for a drain and refill, trust an expert for the best possible results. 

Exterior Areas: While Puddle spa cleanings focus on the internal water systems and conditions, we do offer an optional Full Shampoo Service. This add-on treatment includes a full cleaning of exterior spaces, including the sides of tubs, as well as the hot tub cover. If exterior surfaces are dirty it will look awful and drag down curb appeal. There isn’t much point in spending time and energy cleaning a tub only to put a dirty cover on and have it contaminated again in no time.
