Hot Tub Supplies Needed to Avoid Hot Tub Repairs
Hot tub maintenance is essential for avoiding damage to your equipment and liner as well as long-term complications with your tub. One of the best ways to avoid damage and prevent the need for expensive repairs is to take care of your hot tub. To avoid the need for a hot tub repair, it's important to use the right hot tub supplies. In this blog post, we have summarized all the hot tub supplies you need to protect your hot tub.
Hot Tub Water Testing
Regular water quality testing is an important step for avoiding damage to your hot tub. Many pool and spa stores offer free water quality testing, including Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs. With a water quality test, a technician can let you know the right sanitizers and balancers to keep your hot tub water safe and balanced.
If your hot tub water’s pH is too high or too low, it can affect both your equipment and liner. Hot tub supplies including pH test strips can help you keep a close eye on your water’s pH. You can then use different chemicals to help balance the pH of your water.
Sanitize and Shock Water
Keeping your water sanitized is important for the safety of you and your family, as well as the function of your equipment. Sanitizers are used to kill bacteria and algae that can make you sick or build upon liners and inside of the equipment. You should regularly shock your water following prolonged use of your hot tub. Preventing the build-up of microbes is a great way to prevent the need for a hot tub repair.
Rinse Hot Tub Filter
The filter in your hot tub is designed to catch dirt, hair, and other debris that can get caught in your equipment. To avoid the filter becoming over-filled and less effective, it is important to rinse your hot tub filter regularly. This can easily be achieved using a hose or even an indoor or outdoor tap.
Wipe Down Spa Cover
Your spa cover can collect dirt, debris, and algae over time. Wiping down your spa cover with water and a gentle detergent can help it stay clean and protect your hot tub water. Hot tub supplies such as cleaners and sponges can be used to clean your spa cover and any frequently touched surfaces (such as edges and railings).
