Hot tubs are synonymous with relaxation. What is a vacation without a soak in a spa? Hot water might feel great on sore muscles but have you ever given a thought as to what you are floating in? When spa water is kept clean, it is great but even a bit of neglect can lead to a world of trouble for anyone sitting inside.
When uncared for, contaminated hot tub water is terrible for your system, putting extra strain on your filtration system and causing unexpected damage to your water feature. On the other hand, when your system is kept clean, you get the full lifespan out of your tub and eliminate the risk of recreational water illnesses. When you want the best results for your property, call Puddle Pools for your Peachland hot tub maintenance.
The Ins and Outs of Hot Tub Care
Caring for your hot tub requires a bit more than a quick fill with a garden hose. The right cleaning products make a world of difference to the overall condition of your tub, but the right tools are useless without knowing how to use them. It is easy enough to buy test strips from a local pool supply store but even with an accurate reading, you may not know how to fix the issue, leaving things to go from bad to worse.
Deep Cleaning: A quick skim is enough to leave water surfaces looking cleaner but it does not do much for the areas underneath the water surface. With every body that enters your water, there is debris left behind. From body oils to hair products and hair itself, contaminants are everywhere. In order to ensure a sanitary space, partially draining your hot tub is a must. Once water levels are lowered, sides can be be properly scrubbed and vulnerable areas can be inspected.
Filter Cleaning: Hot tub filters are often overlooked during regular cleaning practices but this is a big mistake. A well-running circulation system can help to prevent motor damage and gunk buildup. Instead of just working on your motor or filtration system, it is important to cut power to the hot tub, in order to avoid any electrical issues.
Water Care: Keeping water clean is a key component of hot tub care but it looks a lot easier than it is. Depending on the type of plant life around your backyard or public pool, dealing with debris can feel like a full-time job. In addition to managing clutter, it is important to keep up with sanitizer levels, applying chlorine or bromine to ensure water safety.
Cleaning Equipment: During regular hot tub cleaning, it is important not to forget to scrub down any equipment that is present in or around your tub. A spa cover, for example, can collect bacteria but they aren’t often given much thought. Failing to wipe a hot tub cover down just lets germs sit, leading to contamination.
