Regular maintenance and repair of your spa is the key to its longevity and optimal performance. There are daily, weekly, monthly, and a few periodic maintenance tasks that you need to carry out to make sure your spa or hot tub is in perfect condition. This will help you avoid problems that may arise as time passes.
Check on the PH and the sanitizer levels of your hot tub. Take a color-coded test strip and dip it into the water. If there’s anything unusual, you may have to dump an additive to return it to the normal level. This will prevent a number of problems like corrosion, mineral buildup, scaling, stinky or cloudy water and even skin irritation.
One chore that you need to do every week is to cleanse the water using a sanitizer. This will help keep it clean and clear. If you use the spa frequently, foaming may become a problem. Solve this by adding in a foam reducer once a week. If the water is high in calcium and mineral, you may need to use a de-scaling agent. This will prevent the buildup of minerals in your hoses, pumps, and even on the walls of your hot tub.
For periodic hot tub maintenance tasks, it’s a good idea to get a contract from a good spa repair service that will conduct regular maintenance for a year or so. These tasks include treating your hot tub with a descaling agent, cleaning or replacing your filters, and maintaining the optimal quality of water in the spa. They may even carry out a regular inspection of your hot tub to avoid larger problems like leaks and heating failure. Conduct an online research to find out if there’s any spa repair company near you. Ask your friends and relatives for recommendation.
