Here are several tips on how to maintain your hot tub and also a suggestion if you live in Colorado. But first let’s view the hot tub choice of the month : The Essential Newport is a basic yet sturdy hot tub that is great for year round use. Equipped with 14 powerful jets and a high quality heater this hot tub offers a relaxing and comfortable hydrotherapy experience at a fraction of the cost when compared to other premium models. The Essential Newport is the ideal hot tub for small families and couples or for someone who is working with limited space. It’s extremely easy to set up and its space-saving design allows it to fit in even in the tightest of spaces. Fast shipping and long-lasting durable construction make this hot tub a great addition to any home.
The most important step is to sanitize the water. The most popular way to do this is with chlorine or bromine based chemical, usually in a slow dissolving tablet form. There are several alternative sanitizing agents such as ozone, silver ions, copper ions, and enzymes but use these with caution since most are not effective without additional chlorine or bromine agents.
Besides performing regular maintenance tasks, it also doesn’t hurt to perform regular inspections of your hot tub’s inner workings in order to catch small problems before they become big ones. Primarily, look for obvious leaks or wet areas beneath the tub. Catching these problems early can be the difference between replacing a $10 pump seal and needing a new $250 part. Also, pay attention to your hot tub’s functioning, and call in a repairman if you notice any major problems, such as failure to heat, pump, or filter the water. Catching an obvious problem like a failed heater during the dead of winter can mean the difference between replacing the heater with a new unit, and having to replace just about everything on your tub, or replace the tub completely, after you thaw it out.
Advices for purchasing a hot tub : Built to last, molded resin spas are built with the shell and cabinet as one piece. This creates a strong, durable spa with an eye catching, easy care finish. Resin spas share some features of acrylic, like loungers and lighting packages, with fewer jets and a lower price. Not all resin hot tubs are created equally. Some spa brands cut corners by heating the spa with the pump, rather than a dedicated heater. These spas do not heat as fast as spas with efficient heating element systems like LifeCast brand. Their temperature is difficult to regulate in very hot or cold weather.
Vacuuming the spa can be accomplished with small vacuums that are either battery powered or garden hose powered. The Pool Blaster spa vacuums are battery operated and fast to use, or you can use the Grit Getter to suck up the little grains that gather in the corners. There are also spa vacs that connect to your vacuum hose for fast removal of even large leaves. Floating debris can be removed with a skimmer net. If you left the cover off during a windstorm and the spa is full of leaves, a skimmer net can also be used to scoop up the larger leaves under the water.
With an environment that revolves around Relaxation and comfort, your maintenance and service requirements should also be stress free. We handle all your needs, from weekly cleanings, to large repairs. Every step of the way we will keep completely up date and in the loop. Fortunately, we do not have a large physical location, that means you receive professional service without the retail price. Due to many service companies only working on models they sell and/or being behind schedule, your hot tub could sit for weeks without service. Because of this, your issues could become more costly. Freezing temperatures over this time can also potentially destroy a hot tub. See more details on Hot Tub Services and Repairs in Colorado.
Don’t do it in a hot tub : People with open sores or any type of infection should not use a spa. The hot water is the perfect environment for spreading infections, especially if sanitizer levels are not properly maintained. The same goes for rashes and other injuries. Consult a doctor to get the green light before stepping back into a hot tub. Newer spas have factory-set temperature maximums of 104 F. Most bathers find that 100 F to 102 F degrees is a comfortable and therapeutic level. Higher temperatures can place undue strain on the cardiovascular system. Be sure to accurately monitor the temperature. If you or your guests feel “funny”, lightheaded, or get overheated, step out of the tub. Check the temperature before returning and make sure you cool off and drink plenty of water.

The spa filter can be under the skimmer basket accessed from inside the spa, or it can be a small tank that is opened up underneath the spa. You’ll need to locate it first in order to clean or replace the filter during your spa care routine. If underneath the spa, you may have a valve that can be shut to prevent water from rushing out when you open the filter. Loosening a large nut or just turning the filter body counter clockwise is the usual method to access the filter cartridge. Some water spillage is inevitable when opening it up, but if you are careful it can be very little.
Draining and refilling your spa is hard work that you’re probably not thrilled to take on unless absolutely necessary. So if you’re trying to track down interior surface problems in your spa such as texture issues, cracks, etc., but don’t want to drain the whole works to do so, make a run to your kitchen sink. A squirt or two of dish soap will help break ripples on the water’s surface, giving you a clearer view of what’s going on beneath. Read more info at http://drspallc.com/.
