Hot tubs and spas are a great addition to homes in Vancouver as they provide a healthy and fun way to relax. From reducing stress to improving circulation, the benefits of hot tubs include both emotional and physical components. Of course, to maximise your hot tub, you need to keep it clean and in good condition. Here are some tips to help you do just that:
Starting from the Inside
The easiest way to keep the water inside a hot tub clean is to change the water and clean the inside of the tub regularly at the recommended intervals. There are also three important factors that contribute to the tub’s water and interior cleanliness, namely the filter, sanitizer, and chemicals.
Common water purification chemicals are chlorine, bromine, and other mineral-based purifiers that can kill standing bacteria and ensures that the water remains clean and clear. The type of sanitizer that you can use to “shock” the water will depend on how often you use your spa or hot tub and its make, model, and size. Filters, meanwhile, are usually cleaned at least once a month and must be replaced when they’re showing signs of damage.
Caring for the Outside
Did you know that majority of the debris and dirt that get into a hot tub do not come from the people using it, but mainly from the outside elements? This is why specially designed covers are vital in the proper care and maintenance of hot tubs. Moreover, the protective shell around your hot tub is non-porous and is therefore, impenetrable to germs and dirt. Keep the outer covering of your hot tub nice and clean by periodically brushing and wiping it.
