Unlike other household cleaning, taking care of a pool or spa is more in-depth. Instead of just grabbing a cloth and wiping down surfaces, cleaning a water feature means technique, chemistry and a whole lot of industry know-how. Puddle Pool specialists provide Port Moody hot tub maintenance to residential, communal and commercial areas, so get the best without the stress!
Every day, hot tub owners try to take tub care into their own hands, only to be met head-on with unexpected problems. Without a trained eye, the beginnings of algae growth might be missed while forgetting to check spa filters can mean havoc for your circulation system. Let a Puddle Pool crew protect your water chemistry and create a safe and welcoming environment for you.
The Basics of Hot Tub Care
Firing up your water feature might be as simple as grabbing a garden hose and letting it fill but there is much more to proper maintenance than just that. Hot tub owners may be used to crystal clear water but excellent conditions don’t just happen naturally. In order to keep your system running smoothly, hot tub filters have to be in good condition and sanitizer levels have to be regularly inspected.
Whether covered or left open, water systems are at the mercy of the elements. Drops in temperature, the amount of use and even a change of season can have a huge impact on your water balance. Too much sanitizer can cause irritations to skin and eyes while too little allows algae to take over. When algae is present, it does not take long for your hot tub to go from relaxing spa to dirty pond.
Every day hot tub cleaning is a must to maintain the condition of your space but seasonal care is important as well. Instead of superficial cleaning and chemical testing, deep cleaning may require draining your hot tub. Improper draining techniques can ruin lawns or lead to water damage in vulnerable areas. Don’t get flooded with hot tub water when you can call a professional to care for your system.
What is Floating in Your Spa Water?
Taking a soak after a long day is mean to be relaxing but pulling back a hot tub cover can be anything but. Even when fully covered, organic debris can still find its way in. The most common types of floating debris are leaves, seed pods, pollen and even insects. Mesh spa covers admit light and encourage algae growth.
With every body that enters your system, there are foreign items being left behind. You might not give it a second thought when stepping into a spa but everything that is on your skin will be left in your system. From sunscreen to hair products, each of these contribute to unwanted residue, usually right above your water line.
Hot tub chemicals and sanitizers like chlorine or bromine can help to manage some of these foreign materials. By working alongside a filter, cleaners and tools can scrub sides and floors, ensuring that there is nothing hiding out. Luckily, Puddle Pool crews know how to treat any and all buildup, giving your feature a clean slate.
The Downside of D.I.Y.
It is simple enough to pop into a pool supply store to seek out test strips and cleaning products for your spa but that does not mean that you know how to use them! Imbalanced chemicals can be bad for your system, but also for your skin. Even with a test kit, it is difficult to maintain balanced water – so leave it to a specialist!
Your water feature is made up of many moving parts and forgetting even one of these can create problems down the line. This is particularly true of areas like hot tub covers which can collect moisture, which is then left to sit. Missing stains on shells can lead to permanent discolouration. If you need help keeping up with all of this demand, Puddle Pool crews offer a tiered system of services in order to keep up with demand.
