There are so many positives and benefits to owning a hot tub; the relaxing aspect, spending time with friends and family, as well as the medical benefits it can have on your body. However, if you don’t keep your hot tub clean, it can have many negative effects that you might not even be aware of. Let’s take a look at why you should keep your hot tub clean and ways you can do this.
Relaxing in your hot tub can help ease tension and soothe joints as well as giving your mind a chance to unwind at the end of a long day. If you use your hot tub frequently it can cause the water to become dirty, this can lead to the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms in your tub. There are many different chemical kits available that are specifically designed to keep your hot tub clean. Make sure you discuss with the supplier to make sure you are investing in the right kits.
Remember to Drain & Fill The Water
It is important to change the water in your hot tub around three to four times a year. The first thing you need to do is drain the tank completely, this then gives you the opportunity to give the tank, filters and other components a deep cleaning with high-quality cleaning products. Once you have done this, you need to rinse, dry and fill the tank with fresh and clean water.
Maintain Your Filter
Filters are designed to keep the bad stuff out of your hot tub, but like most components, the filters can also get dirty. Make sure you check and clean them once a month to do this, remove the filter and replace with a backup. You can then simply rinse it down with a hose, or soak it in a solution. Keeping your filter clean will help enhance the lifespan and quality of your hot tub water.
Shower Before Use
This one sounds simple, but by having a quick shower before getting in your hot tub reduces the risk of oils, soaps and dirt from clogging up your hot tub and affecting the water.
Clean Your Hot Tub Regularly
Our final point is to make sure you pay special attention to the regular cleaning of your hot tub. If you notice any problems then do something about it straight away to prevent the issue from getting bigger. Make sure you ensure the pH balance is correct and add any other products if necessary.
