Checking Your pH Levels
Like your backyard swimming pool, the pH balance of your hot tub determines whether its water is too acidic or too basic — both of which can cause problems.
As part of our pool service, we will regularly check and maintain the pH levels of both your swimming pool and hot tub. We also maintain a record of these levels to determine if there are any changes and, if so, what may be causing variations in the pH level.
Cleaning your Spa
To maintain optimal sanitation, it’s a good idea to drain and clean your spa at least once every couple of months.
To clean the walls of your hot tub, use a mild, non-abrasive detergent and a soft scrubbing pad or rag to gently remove any buildup of dirt of residue. For tougher stains, you can use a solution of water and common baking soda to gently lift stains away from surface areas.
Keeping Spa Filters Clean
Hot tub filters can quickly become clogged with mineral particles or calcium deposits from hard water. That’s why it’s a good idea to remove and clean your hot tub’s filters monthly.
Use a garden hose to spray each cartridge while rotating it all the way around. This will remove any debris that can become trapped between the filter’s pleats.
In addition to monthly cleaning, it’s also a good idea to replace your filters every three years with brand new, factory-direct replacement filters. This will extend the life of both your hot tub and its pump system.
Taking care of your hot tub is just as important as regular swimming pool maintenance. For your convenience, our skilled technicians can clean and maintain your hot tub during your regularly scheduled pool cleaning appointments.
