St. Catharines Hot Tub Maintenance

Nothing beats a hard week like a warm water soak in a hot tub. When maintained a spa can help you kick back and relax but when they are not cleaned regularly, it can be a major stressor. If you are having a hard time keeping up with the needs of your tub, leave it up to a local technician instead! 

Puddle technicians can help to keep your water systems flowing and clean with custom St. Catharines hot tub maintenance programs that work for you! Creating a unique cleaning program that suits the needs of your space is key to keeping water clean, swimmers safe and prolonging the lifespan of the internal components that keep your systems running. 

For many owners, hot tub care means tossing in a couple of chemicals and putting on a spa cover. A cover might help to keep some debris out but it also creates the ideal environment for bacteria to build up, algae growth, white mold and other unpleasant surprises. A damp, warm and covered environment will quickly be overrun with unwanted items and contaminated water. 

Stepping foot into contaminated water is unpleasant but it will also cause recreational water illness (RWI), which can range from skin irritations, all the way to ear/eye infections and, in serious cases, e-coli poisoning. When you want to keep spa water clean, filters clean, and avoid the need for expensive repairs and replacements, just call Puddle for all of your hot tub cleaning needs. 

Hot Tub Cleaning: Keeping Your Tub Looking Its Best 

No one wants to step foot into a hot tub only to find a blanket of leaves sitting on seats and flooring. Unlike a swimming pool, you can’t just flip the switch on a pool vacuum and watch as unwanted items get sucked up. In order to fully remove unwanted items it takes speciality tools and techniques designed to remove debris and residue without causing damage. 

It can take months to figure out the best way to clean out your hot tub and during this time you are dealing with the risk of serious contamination. Ditch the risk and call an expert to break the cleaning process down into steps that address the needs of your tub inside and out, keeping it cleaner than ever. 

Routine Cleaning Programs: As a hot tub owner, you understand the importance of routine. Based on your usage rate and the temperature of your tub chemicals will often last for a period of 2 weeks. Basic test strips are available at any pool supply store and while these might inform you about issues with chlorine or bromine they don’t tell you how to fix them. Proper water chemistry relies on a lot more than just sanitizer levels alone. In order to maintain clean water it is important to consider pH levels, total alkalinity and calcium as well. Keeping the filter cleaner is a big part of keeping your water systems running smoothly. Regular programs mean keeping an eye on your spa filters and floating skimmer baskets, and cleaning them as needed. Scrubbing sides with a soft brittle brush will also help to get rid of residue that can make surfaces slippery and unpleasant. 

Deep Cleans: Even with a routine cleaning program your hot tub will need a deep clean. Buildup and debris have a habit of building up in unexpected areas, namely inside internal water lines. A deep clean or system refresh uses a multi-part treatment of specialized hot tub chemicals that flows through lines and components, dragging buildup out with it and depositing it into the main basin. From here, water is drained out and shells, jets, headrests and more can be scrubbed clean. Hot tub water can then be refilled. From here, technicians come back for a final balancing of chemical levels to ensure safe swimming for anyone who steps inside. 

There isn’t much point in cleaning and balancing pools if the equipment and surrounding areas are still dirty. When you call a Puddle technician for your system refresh, ask about our optional deep shampoo treatments. This process involves scrubbing of the hot tub cover and outer shell.
