Hot Tub Tips

Maintaining your spa or hot tub doesn't have to be a chore. Here are some often-overlooked tips that can make a significant difference in your spa experience. Not only will these tips keep your water crystal clear, but they'll also help you save money in the long run.

Air Control Valves

Always remember to close the Air Control Injection Valves after using your spa. These valves mix air with the water from your jets and can let cold air into the spa water. Leaving them open can prolong the heating cycle, costing you more in energy bills.

Avoid Oils and Soaps

Steer clear of introducing oil-based or soap-based products into your spa water. This includes avoiding cleaning agents like glass or car cleaners, which can disrupt your water chemistry. Also, ask bathers to shower before entering the spa to minimize the introduction of products like hair sprays, lotions, and sunscreens, which can cloud the water and clog the filter.

Hair Management

Keep some baseball caps near your spa. This allows people with long hair to tuck it under the cap, preventing hair products from contaminating the spa water.

Use Scumballs or Enzyme-Based Oil Removers

Invest in "Scumballs" or enzyme-based oil removers to minimize oils that get into the filter. Squeeze out the Scumball after each use and replace it when it starts to deteriorate. These products help maintain water clarity and freshness for months.

Filter Maintenance

Ensure your filter is correctly seated and consider replacing it every 12 months. Over time, the fibers in the filter degrade, affecting its filtration efficiency. Having two filters and rotating them weekly can offer the most sanitary filtration. Soak one in a "Filter Cleaner" solution while the other is in use.

Regular Water Testing

Test your spa water weekly to ensure pH and alkalinity levels are within the recommended ranges. Keep your test kit updated; dropper bottles should be replaced annually to ensure accurate readings.

Don't Skimp on Bromine Tablets

Always keep 4-6 Bromine Tablets in your floater, depending on your spa's size. Maintaining slightly higher Bromine levels, while keeping pH and Alkalinity in check, can prevent bacterial growth and keep your spa sanitary.

By following these tips, you'll find spa or hot tub maintenance to be much more manageable. These practices will help you prevent issues before they arise, letting you focus on what hot tubs are really for—relaxation and fun!
