Myrtle Beach Hot TubMany hot tub owners are under the false impression that doing proper maintenance on it is difficult or time consuming.

This is not the case, however! Just a few consistent steps will keep things easy and trouble free. Here are some great tips to get you started on your hot tub or spa maintenance and keep it working at peak performance!

Tips for Hot Tub and Spa Maintenance

The first thing to remember is to do things on a regular basis to avoid bigger problems that could be costly. Most hot tubs or spas are made from acrylic, which is fairly easy to clean often, due to its non-porous and smooth surface. Germs cannot hide out and get stuck in the pores on acrylic finishes the way they can on concrete that is used on most swimming pools. All you really need to do to clean your spa is to wipe it down with a damp cloth and cleanser that’s not abrasive. Elko Spas Billiards and Pools can help you choose the right product if you have questions about it.

If you have a cover for your Jacuzzi that is exposed to the elements, then you should get a special vinyl protector solution and apply that to protect from sun, wind or rain & snow. If you can, don’t let that cleanser get into the water, even though it’s mild.

The same way you add chemicals to a swimming pool, there are some chemicals required for spas and hot tubs as well. These chemicals keep the proper pH balance level right, clean the water from bacteria that could be harmful, as well as kill germs from body exposure to the water. Chlorine is by far the most common and readily available chemical used today, although there are many other options as well these days. Chlorine tends to also be one of the least expensive options. At Elko Spas Billiards and Pools, we can help you with knowing how much chemical to use to keep your water at safe levels.

The filter should be cleaned regularly and this step should never be ignored! Again, we’re here to help you a great deal with this task and knowing what to do in order to get it done right the first time. Doing these things will extend the life of your jacucci greatly, as well as ensure that you and your loved ones are safe when they are in the hot tub.

If you don’t have a Jacuzzi or spa, consider having one installed—they are investments worth their weight in gold!
