When you decide that a hot tub is right for you, you don’t want to worry about a major learning curve when it comes to hot tub maintenance. However, if you are shopping with Tredway Pools Plus, you don’t have to worry about this learning curve as much. We have a few simple steps for you to follow below that will have you a master of hot tub maintenance in no time, and if things get complicated, we are always here to help as well.
1. Make sure water circulation is good to enhance hot tub maintenance.
The most important thing you can do to ensure your hot tub stays in excellent condition is to be sure your filters are clean and water is circulating well. Stagnant water will always become a problem. This means taking your water filter out every week or so and cleaning it with a water hose. You can use a cleaning solution once a month to be sure things stay super fresh. Allowing your hot tub filters to run each day will also encourage clean water.
2. Keep your surfaces clean.
An often overlooked aspect of hot tub maintenance is keeping the surfaces on and around your hot tub clean. This means wiping down the outside of the tub and the cover regularly. Doing these things will ensure that extra debris isn’t falling into the tub contaminating your water. Be sure to do this around once a month, as it will help to keep your hot tub surface pristine.
3. Purchasing a cover will make hot tub maintenance simpler.
Along the lines of keeping surfaces clean, having a hot tub cover will make your work so much easier. A cover will protect the water from anything that may be in the air or near the hot tub, so you won’t have to worry about dirt and debris contaminating your water.
Consider investing in a Covana hot tub cover. They are super insulating and secure, esuring nothing will get in your hot tub – not even a little dust. Plus, lifting is a breeze. All you need to do is turn a key! It doesn’t get any simpler than this.
4. Test and treat your water regularly.
Testing and treating hot tub water with spa chemicals is probably the step most people dread when they think of caring for a hot tub. It doesn’t have to be stressful at all, though. While some of the chemical names may sound unfamiliar or intimidating, having test strips eliminates the need for in depth understanding of what each one does. The test strips allow you to compare colors to see if any specific chemical is too high or too low, so you’ll know just what spa chemicals you actually need.
If you feel overwhelmed with this at any point, Tredway employees are experts who do understand all the ins and outs of spa chemicals and are ready to help. Feel free to come in and ask us about your spa water test results and what chemicals you need based on them.
Hot tub maintenance doesn’t have to be difficult or overwhelming. While the first few times doing things on your own may be nerve-wracking, you’ll soon see that it’s pretty straightforward. If you ever get into a situation where you feel you can’t get a handle on things, Tredway Pools Plus is just a call away.
