Hot Tub Maintenance
Hot Tubs are a great investment for homeowners who love a little bit of luxury in their own home. While all is well and good when indulging in the bubbles, you need to make sure that you treat your hot tub with care if you want it to last.
This handy list of maintenance tasks will ensure that you get the most out of your hot tub, keeping it looking as fresh as the day you bought it.
Make Sure The Water is Suitable
In order to ward off bacteria and ensure that your tub is safe, it is important to adjust the PH, calcium hardness, sanitiser and alkalinity on a regular basis.
By regular, we would recommend twice a week if you are using on a regular basis, keeping a log of the recordings as you go along.
Testing strips can be bought for just a few pounds, which will mean that you can buy the relevant treatments and chlorine tablets, Swindon based Suds Online recommend.
Clean The Hot Tub Filter
Cleaning the filter on your hot tub should be done roughly every 8 weeks, depending on how often you use your tub.
If you are careful when accessing the filter cartridge you will lose very little water and with the correct cleaning solutions, you will clear the filter of any dirt in no time.
You should look to replace your hot tub filter every two years at least.
Clean Out The Hot Tub
You can carry out a full clean of the tub when it is drained fully using appropriate cleaning materials only. By using incorrect cleaning fluids and chlorine tablets, Swindon based Suds Online have seen many damaged hot tubs.
Once you have the correct hot tub cleaner you can get to work on all of the grit and grains of dirt that find their way into all of the nooks and crannies of your tub. Any floating debris can be skimmed off of the top using a skimming net, which is a wise investment to catch leaves and any rubbish that flies into your garden.
You can get into a routine of skimming your hot tub and filling it up with water to keep it to the optimum level every week or so.
Air Out The Cover
You will need to clean and fully condition the hot tub cover on a regular basis using special cover cleaner, rather than standard cleaning materials. The cover of your hot tub may not always look dirty but it will be gradually build up oil and dust so it is best to keep on top of it. It is important to air out the cover even when your tub is not in use.
