Richmond Hill Hot Tub Maintenance

Having a hot tub is great but cleaning one isn’t! As much as you might enjoy a warm water soak at the end of a long work day this doesn’t come without a lot of hard work and it can be a lot to keep up with. Missing just one chemical treatment can result in cloudy water, algae blooms, foul smells, bad visuals and serious health risks. A Richmond Hill hot tub maintenance program keeps water crystal clear, swimmers safe and equipment in great shape. 

Hot tub cleaning is not as simple as scooping out a bit of debris and throwing in a few pool chemicals. A quick shock might provide a superficial improvement and clear away a bit of cloudiness but that doesn’t mean that it is safe to swim in. If you are struggling to keep up with the demands of your water system, let an expert handle the heavy lifting for you. 

Hot Tub Care: How to Get Great Results 

Cleaning your hot tub is not a one-step process but is a multi-step process. You can’t rely on simple test strips to correct your water chemistry but need to break the cleaning process down into multiple steps that clear water and clean surfaces and water systems, inside and out. 

Water Balancing: Damp, dark and warm areas are the ideal space for bacteria, mold and algae to form and your hot tub water fits the bill. A test kit can help to point out some obvious issues with your water chemistry but they don’t tell you how to apply hot tub chemicals properly to correct the issues. Maintaining a sanitary swim space means balancing sanitizers like chlorine or bromine, as well as pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. 

Debris Removal: Regularly cleaning a spa means removing debris on a consistent basis but this is easier said than done. Unlike a swimming pool you can’t just flip the switch on a robot cleaner or vacuum and watch it suck up unwanted items. Getting debris out of a spa requires a speciality hand vacuum that can be used to suck up unwanted items and push filtered water back into basins. Puddle technicians have these tools on hand to get rid of items from floors, seats and safely scrub residue from water lines. In addition to removing debris from the shell itself it is important to empty out floating skimmer baskets and filters. 

Spa Filter & Circulation Systems: When you want to keep your hot tub cleaner, you have to keep the filter cleaner. It is important to clean the hot tub filters in your system but it isn’t always simple. The goal of any filter is to trap and hold smaller bits and pieces while letting filtered water circulate back into basins. Over time unwanted items will layer over themselves preventing water flow. This means pumps, internal components and equipment have to work harder to circulate water, putting strain on circulation systems. This means wear and tear that will shorten the lifespan of water systems leading to the need for premature repairs and replacements. 

Deep Cleans: Even with a routine cleaning program it is important to incorporate deep cleans/system refreshes as part of your annual maintenance routine. This process includes a heavy water treatment, having to drain the hot tub, heavy scrubbing, refill the hot tub and perform a final water balancing. The goal of a proper drain and clean is to allow chemical treatments to run through lines loosening and pulling out debris that is then dumped back into basins. Contaminated water is then drained out. Once empty shells, jets, headrests and other areas are scrubbed clean. Water can then be refilled with a basic garden hose and then technicians will perform a final balancing so your system is safe and ready to use. 

There isn’t much point in performing a deep clean only to put a dirty hot tub cover back on. Ask a Puddle technician about optional Full Shampoo services that involve cleaning exterior areas, spa covers and other surfaces that otherwise go overlooked.
