Buying a hot tub or swim spa is a great way to invest in your health, not to mention, the value of your home.
If you want to keep your hot tub or spa in good working order, proper service is essential. Read on to learn about the benefits of regular hot tub and spa maintenance.
Extend the Life of Your Hot Tub
Ensuring that your spa serves you well over the years is equal parts maintenance and professional service.
Your spa requires attention on a weekly basis — more often if it is heavily used.
By sticking to a regular maintenance schedule, which includes keeping the chemical makeup of your hot tub water balanced and keeping your sanitization system in good working order, you’re doing your part to protect your spa.
It’s also important to have a professional check over your spa yearly to look for issues that need repair.
Keeping your water and filter clean and chemicals balanced will keep your spa running well. But, as your spa gets older, and wear and tear of regular use sets in, problems can crop up.
If you notice your water isn’t heating properly or your water is cloudy despite routine cleanings, it’s time to call in an expert.
Cold water could be a sign of lack of air flow to the spa’s heater or it could be a mechanical issue. Neither are problems that you should try to solve on your own.
In the case of cloudy water, if you’ve been faithful in treating and changing it, it could be a sign of clogged pipes or that your pump isn’t working properly. Both of these issues should be tackled by a professional repair service.
You can largely avoid these issues with regular service inspections. To keep your spa running smoothly, set up an annual check with your local expert. It’s the best way to avoid headaches in the future.
Taking care of your hot tub is also an investment in the health of your family. Hot tub foam or cloudy spa water is always an indication that something is wrong. Murky water is a sign that the pH balance of your water is off. Using cheap chemicals or inaccurately mixing them can cause this.
To maintain a safe and healthy environment for your family, be sure to perform regular water tests and add extra chlorine or chemicals to increase or decrease your spa’s pH as needed. Cleaning your hot tub filter to be rid of all contaminants is also a good idea.
If your water still will not clear, your spa will need to be drained and cleaned. If this does not do the trick, it’s time to call in the professionals.
Regular professional inspections can guarantee you’ll be enjoying your hot tub or spa for many years to come. That’s why we recommend scheduling an annual check of your spa, even if it seems to be running well.
A professional can tell you if certain parts of your spa or hot tub are showing wear and tear, enabling you to have them fixed before a problem crops up.
