A hot tub is something the whole family can enjoy all year round, but to do so you'll want to make sure it's in top condition. Home & Hearth has been helping the people of Traverse City, MI, relax in style since 2007. Once they set you up with a fantastic Hot Spring spa, you’ll have only a few steps to follow to properly maintain it.
Some of the simple steps to hot tub maintenance include:
- Regularly Cleaning Your Filter: One of the easiest things you can do to maintain your hot tub is regularly clean your filter. According to spa retailers, the majority of service calls are due to dirty filters. Make the cleaning process a monthly routine and stick to it. That includes checking and cleaning the filter housing, removing leaves and other debris, and generally keeping filter flow at an optimal level. Don't forget to replace your filter with a new one when the time comes.
- Maintaining Chemical Sanitization: The sanitizers most common for hot tubs are chlorine and bromine. They combine with minerals to keep the water fresh and free of microbial contaminants. Whether you have an indoor hot tub or outdoor spa will likely dictate your specific sanitization method, and many systems are simplified and allow you to set dosages based on use.
- Draining & Refilling: Using the hot tub also a great way to keep your spa in top condition. Take advantage of its many comforts regularly and you'll be more likely to accurately maintain it. A good indicator of when to drain and refill your hot tub is when chemicals have little to no affect. Some owners elect to drain and refill every 3-4 months, whereas others (on mineral or salt systems) can get 6-18 months between refills.
There's a good reason why Hot Spring’s tagline is "Every day made better." That's precisely what you can expect when you have easy access to a beautiful, well-maintained hot tub. Discover more about Home & Hearth by giving them a call at (231) 922-0064 or visiting their website today.
