This is why Pro Pool & Spa offer spa owners all the must-knows facts about tub’s maintenance, to help them sustain the safest water conditions as well as equipment performance. In fact, it is possible to ensure so many years of relaxation and enjoyment from a spa with just a little bit of regular maintenance. The following are a few useful tips:
The main concern with Waterloo hot tub maintenance is protecting the spa’s shell and heater – which of course are the main components in a hot water tub. To clean a spa shell, consider using a mild non-sudsing, non-abrasive cleaner and a nylon scrubber or soft rag to remove dirt build-up. Common baking soda can also be used to perform minor surface cleaning. Once the spa shell has been cleaned and dried, it is good to apply FreshWater Spa Shine to keep it looking new and sparkling.
Importance of Waterloo Hot Tub Maintenance Chemicals
Levels of chemical in the hot-water tub need to be checked not less that twice a week. The chlorine level, pH, hardness as well as the total alkalinity form the most vital in ensuring that the heater coil is cushioned from becoming corroded and that the water is kept safe. Chlorine (either in liquid, tablet or granular form) sanitizes (killing algae and bacteria), and oxidizes (removing unwanted organic elements such as sweat, oils, urine and dead bacteria) from the water. Always use a stabilizer in its solid trichlor form to help prevent the sun from breaking down the chlorine too quickly.
The free available chlorine should be kept between 2 – 10 ppm. Low chlorine concentration is normally indicated by a chlorine odor or irritated eyes. Normally, chlorine gets evaporated very quickly and may not be around to work continually, so it’s rather economical to use bromine as it’s not as highly volatile as chlorine and can easily be checked with test strips or a test kit by almost anyone. But it’s good to check the hot tub and see what he manufacturer suggest for use.
For optimum Waterloo hot tub maintenance, it is advised that the water be changed bi-monthly, but if the water-chemical levels are properly maintained, water can last even for 12 weeks. During winter, the outdoor spa water ought to be changed early enough before the outdoor temperature drops under 40 degrees Fahrenheit, while in spring, it should be done when day temperature stays above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure that the shell is protected against blisters that are normally found in the acrylic.
