Whitby Hot Tub Maintenance

Picture this: you come home after a long work day and all you want to do is take a long soak in your hot tub. You pull back the cover only to see swampy green water and algae. A dirty water system doesn’t just look awful, it is a serious risk to health and safety and a hazard to structures and surrounding areas. Keeping a spa clean is more complicated than throwing in a few chemicals here and there but local Puddle Pros are here to help. Professional Whitby hot tub maintenance services keep your water crystal clear and systems running smoothly so you can kick back and relax. 

Cleaning your hot tub is not as simple as wiping off a counter or scrubbing out a bathtub. In fact, using the wrong chemicals can actually strip away protective coatings and leave surfaces vulnerable to damage. The best way to tackle a dirty hot tub is with a multi-step approach that clean systems inside and out, sanitizes surfaces and checks filters for a top to bottom clean. If this sounds overwhelming, just call a local Puddle expert! 

Hot Tub Care: What to Know 

A damp, covered and warm environment is the ideal space for bacteria to thrive. Without regular chemical treatments and cleaning you can expect algae growth, discoloured water and foul smells. Anyone can spend an afternoon stocking up on test kits, pool chemicals and tools but figuring out how to put them to use can take days, weeks or even months and this means serious contamination. 

After years of industry experience our team of local pool experts have hot tub cleaning down to a science. 

Routine Cleaning Programs: The secret to a clean hot tub is consistency. Depending on the weather and time of year, one missed chemical treatment can lead to cloudy water and contaminations. Hot tub chemicals will usually stay effective in warm water for a period of two weeks. This means regular applications are needed to keep hot tub water clean. Maintaining proper water chemistry means needing to balance sanitizers like chlorine or bromine, as well as  pH levels, alkalinity and calcium. 

Putting a spa cover on can help to keep debris out but there will also be small bits and pieces that sneak by. Manual vacuums are the best way to get rid of sunken items while skimmer rods and floating skimmer baskets will trap and hold unwanted items. Cleaning the filter is another key component of keeping water systems running smoothly. When managing filters, cartridges should be inspected regularly and cleaned as needed. 

Deep Cleans: Even with regular cleanings it is a good idea to schedule a deep cleaning. Depending on your rate of use these can be done annually, semi-annually, quarterly or evenly monthly. Refreshing your water system starts with applying a specialized combo of chemicals that run through hot tub plumbing. 

This pulls any buildup, gunk or debris from internal systems and drags it into the hot tub shell. It is then time to drain the hot tub. Water is drained out and Puddle technicians perform heavy scrubbing of the interior shell, jets, head rests, seats and flooring. Once clean, technicians refill the hot tub with a garden hose and balance water.
