Hot Tub Maintenance: Help to Keep the Fun Times Rolling

A hot tub is an exciting addition to any home as it provides both fun and relaxation. There’s nothing like the feeling of the warm jets of water thrusting around your tired body. In just minutes, your stress and tension will melt away.

One of the reasons why not a lot of people buy hot tubs is the maintenance. But with the latest advancements, hot tubs have now become easier and less time-consuming to maintain than ever before. Certainly, hot tubs have come a long way and Be-Lite Spa Covers can help you keep your spa running smoothly!

Hot tubs provide you lots of benefits, so don’t lose out those benefits by performing regular maintenance that will ensure a longer useful life. And while it takes some work, maintaining your own hot tub is not as complicated as it seems.

1. Hot tub water care

One of the misconceptions of owning a hot tub is that you must be an expert of chemistry in order to maintain your hot tub water’s chemical balance. But fear not! It takes simple steps to get it right. Making small adjustments as needed will help in keeping the water’s pH within enough ranges and thus will ensure the health of your spa. There are pool and spa water test kits available that will enable you to verify whether the water is too alkaline or acidic. These and other latest advancements in water care will dramatically reduce the amount of time and cost in adding chemicals to your spa and will also significantly minimize weekly spa maintenance.

2. De-scaling

Some spas and hot tub systems tend to “scale” off a lot due to high calcium or mineral content. Even if your own hot tub does not have a mineral or calcium buildup, you should still use a de-scaling agent suitable for your unit at least a couple of times a year.

3. Cleaning the filters

It doesn’t take too long to clean the filters of your hot tub. Remove the main filter and rinse it at least once a month. Better yet, do a deep-clean on your hot tub filter by soaking it in a bucket of water and regular dishwasher and then brushing it. If the filter is worn out due to frequent usage, replace it immediately with a new one.

4. Draining your hot tub

No matter how frequently or how sporadically you use your spa, the water still needs to be drained especially when it starts to look a bit more cloudy – then it’s time to drain your hot tub and refill it with clean water to freshen up the system. After all, no one wants to soak in the same bath water again and again.

5. Checking your hot tub cover

A cover protects your hot tub from evaporation, dirt and debris. It even keeps your kids and pets out. Checking your hot tub cover is also an important part of your hot tub maintenance. Make sure that the cover doesn’t have significant damage. When it’s time to replace your old and worn-out cover, consider using an aluminum cover from Be-Lite – it is strong and durable, and it is guaranteed to last for many years.

Scheduled Maintenance Is the Key

Depending on the size of your spa, the entire process may take from a few hours up to a full day. But if you consider this – it takes a little while to conduct a necessary maintenance to keep your spa working for many years to come.When you’re at it, consider installing an aluminum hot tub cover from Be-Lite Spa Covers.
