Useful Tips for New Hot Tub Owners

Hot tub

Have you recently purchased a hot tub for your backyard? Are you now feeling overwhelmed thinking of how to maintain it? The following simple and useful tips will help you maximize your enjoyment and maintain your hot tub properly:

Buy a high quality cover: A hot tub cover can not only keep your spa safe from the outside environment but also save you a significant amount in energy costs by keeping your water warm.

Clean your tub regularly: Maintaining your hot tub will be easy if you stick to regular schedule of cleaning of your spa and its filters. Drain and clean your hot tub every 3-4 months. You may want to do it more often if you use it regularly. This will keep your spa looking and functioning as good as new.

Keep the water temperature consistent: Having a well-insulated hot tub and cover will keep your water temperature consistent. Make sure to secure your cover after every use.

Use a cover conditioner for your hot tub cover: If you have invested in a high quality hot tub cover, make sure you do everything you can to make it last for as long as possible. Use a cover conditioner to protect your cover from UV rays and prevent it from hardening and cracking.

Clean your hot tub with cleaning accessories: Clean your hot tub only with cleaning accessories. Buy hot tub filter accessories and other cleaning tools. These items are worth the investment.

Take proper care of your hot tub chemicals: Make sure that your hot tub chemicals are dry and out of extreme temperatures. If they get wet or are exposed to very hot or cold temperatures, they will begin degrading and may not work properly.

Always set the tub to economy mode when you are on vacation: Most hot tubs these days come with the feature of an economy mode. This mode lowers the water temperature by 15 degrees when you turn it on, and heats it right back up to its original temperature when you turn it off.
