Summer Spa Maintenance Tips for an Enjoyable Experience

Summertime can get packed with a lot of fun and exciting things. Nevertheless, nothing beats a lazy summer day. You can read a book, take a nap, or make some cold and refreshing drinks. You can also swim in the backyard pool or soak in your hot tub’s warm and bubbly waters.

It’s pretty understandable that the hot weather can make you feel lazy and may slow you down in your regular hot tub maintenance. Make sure everything is in tip-top shape. ‘Everything’ includes replacing any worn-out hot tub covers with a durable aluminum one from a reputable manufacturer.

Always keep your hot tub in great shape for more enjoyable soaks in the summertime.

Five tips to keep your hot tub running well in the summertime:

  1. Drain and clean the basin – Draining and cleaning the basin should be done at least a couple of times each year, depending on how often you use it. Summertime is the perfect time to do it. Drain all the water. Next, wash out the basin with a gentle detergent or cleanser as suggested by the manufacturer. Then you might as well want to clean out filters, jets, pumps, and filter cases.
  2. Refill, test, and balance – Once everything is clean and dry, refill your hot tub, and test your water’s sanitizing chemicals, alkalinity, and pH are balanced. There are several options to test your water’s chemical balance, such as using test strips or equivalent. The tip is to keep your water safe for soaking.
  3. Adjust the temperature – In the summertime, the hot tub water temperature will rise as the days get hotter. For the moment, consider bringing down your hot tub’s thermostat to compensate for the rising heat of the ambient air. Set your filtration system to run during the cooler hours of the day so that your hot tub won’t overheat and shut down.
  4. Cover your hot tub when it is not in use – When you’re through using your hot tub, don’t leave it open. Protect your hot tub from debris and evaporation by using a durable aluminum cover when not in use. Remove the hot tub cover twice a week to inspect things in the basin. Also, don’t forget to give your hot tub cover a quick wipe down.
  5. Set a regular schedule – You can ensure your hot tub is in good working condition. Establishing a regular daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal maintenance schedule is good. Maintaining your hot tub regularly will ensure more years of relaxation and fun times for everyone.

Giving your hot tub regular maintenance, which includes using a quality hot tub cover, will ensure more water time with your family and friends.
