Surely there is no better way to wind down, and relax at the end of a long, hard day than by immersing yourself in your beautiful home spa. Certainly the stress you have to deal with in your career life can be overwhelming, but relaxing and enjoying the soothing bubbles in your hot tub is one sure fire way of making all that unwanted stress go away. Following a routine maintenance schedule, is important to the upkeep of your home spa and to keeping it looking beautiful, refreshed, and clean. The therapy you gain when immersed in your hot tub is something you do not want to lose out on, especially when you need it most, which is why it is so important to keep your hot tub in perfect condition so you are able to use it whenever the need arises.
One of the biggest concerns that come into play with your hot tub maintenance is the quality of the water. Here at Sapphire Pools and Spas we recommend you test the pH levels of your spa water each day before use. If you find that the reading does not fall within the appropriate 7.2-7.6 range, then it is necessary to add pH increaser if it is too low, or a pH decreaser if the reading is too high. Follow the instructions on the container closely in order to bring the water pH level balance to a healthy and safe level.
Another maintenance concern is that of hygiene. For the purposes of hygiene and for your overall safety it is highly recommended that you change the water in your hot tub at minimum every four months. In addition, you want to be certain to shock the water weekly with an oxidizing element. Each of these maintenance tasks is essential to the overall health and well-being of not only your home spa but your own health as well.
Further maintenance tips include cleaning the vinyl cover of your spa regularly. Typically it is a good practice to clean the cover each month with a specialized cleaner, making certain to wipe the cleaning solution off thoroughly. You may also want to clean the shell of your hot tub monthly as well, but be certain that you do not use harmful cleaning products, but rather specific cleaning products that are designed for the care and maintenance of hot tubs. Utilizing other household cleaning solutions or agents can certainly cause grave harm to your hot tub shell.
Another very important routine maintenance task is that of cleaning the filter cartridges. There are a variety of products you can use to accomplish this task, but here at Sapphire Pools and Spas we recommend the use of a spray cleaner for your filter cartridges. It is best to clean your filters monthly and we also advise that you have a spare set of filter cartridges always on hand so as to avoid any downtime with your home spa.
Finally, we also suggest that you clean and maintain your entire spa area or room, removing any type of dirt, grime or debris from the immediate area. You want to keep the air circulating in and out of your spa area or room and to maintain a fresh scent and aroma. Scented candles are always a great choice for adding a freshness to the air as well as a comforting and therapeutic atmosphere.
