With the purchase of one of our spas, you can create a staycation right outside the back door. This being said, we know some customers still have concerns about the safety and benefits of a hot tub. We are here to inform you on the common mistakes new customers make with their tubs and how these can be avoided! After all, a hot tub should be a fun investment – not stressful.
When you purchase a hot tub, is it important to take all factors into consideration. Let’s start with the installation of your spa. This is not an area to try and cut corners because when done incorrectly, it can cause further issues. By doing it right the first time, you will save money in the long run!
Keeping your spa clean is also something you will want to stay ahead on. Be sure to invest in chemicals that will keep the sizzling waters clean for every soak. If your water remains untreated, bacteria and bugs can takeover creating an unsafe environment to swim in. It is also critical that you are using the correct chemicals for your specific spa and follow the directions closely.
You may also want to invest in a high-quality cover. This will keep unwanted materials from getting into your hot tub when it is not in use, plus increase the lifespan of your home investment. Even a leaf when sucked into the system can clog the filter leading to more problems. So, remember to cover your spa whenever you exit!
Cleaning your filters and jets on a consistent basis is another important task to extend the life of your spa. If this goes undone, it can cause problems for the water in your spa and will require more energy to power. Creating a schedule to clean is a simple way to ensure that you maintain the tub correctly. Showering before entering your spa can also prevent having to clean the filters as often.
One way to reduce the energy required to keep your tub running is to regulate the temperature. Keeping your spa at one consistent degree is the best way to ensure you don’t drive up the energy bill. This is a simple task that saves you lots in the long run!
If you handle these tasks proactively, you will save both time and money! Plus, you will increase the lifespan of your hot tub investment.
