Creating A Beautiful Indoor Environment

For years, I had problems with the way that my house looked, but I lacked the funding to renovate like I wanted to. Fortunately, I fell into some money a few years ago, and it made a tremendous difference. I was able to hire a team of professional contractors who could help me to create the kind of home that I wanted, and it was a really amazing feeling to have things underway. This blog is here to help people to know how to make their house into what they want by working with contractors. Check out these tips to start living like you never have before.

Hot Tub Care And Maintenance Tips

Hot tubs can provide hours and hours of entertainment or relaxation for you and your family. It's a great addition to any home and can definitely get a lot of use. All of this use requires maintenance and care in order to keep it running properly for years to come. See below for tips on how to care and maintain your hot tub.

Test The Water

Test the water in your hot tub often to be sure it has sanitized water that is safe for sitting in. If your water isn't properly sanitized or balanced, you could end up with a rash or other skin issues. Use a spa water testing kit, which is different from a pool water testing kit. Check the pH level, alkalinity, chlorine, calcium and bromine levels. You can find different testing kits, but the test strips are the easiest to use. Simply dip the test strip into the water for a few seconds, then check the strip to the back of the package to compare the levels. 

Add Chemicals

Based on your test strip, you should add chemicals based on what your levels were. You can find chemicals at your local pool/spa supply store. If you aren't exactly sure what chemicals you need to add, you can usually take a sample of your water to the supply store and have it tested. They can then guide you to which chemicals will clear up your spa.

Clean The Filter

Your hot tub should have a filter that needs to be cleaned often. A hot tub filter can accumulate with dirt, debris, hair and other gunk, which will get trapped in the filter. To help your water filter properly this filter needs to be cleaned. Take the filter out and spray it off with a garden hose. You can also spray it with a chemical spray, or soak it in a chemical soak. The filter should be cleaned every week, but a deeper clean (chemical spray or soak) may be required every couple of months.

Drain And Add New Water

You should drain the water from your hot tub every three to four months and add new water to your hot tub. Drain the water out of the hot tub using a submersible pump and then clean up the interior of the tub if you have any stains. You can use a gentle cleanser to clean stains, then rinse it thoroughly. Add new water to the hot tub and add chemicals to the water to be sure it is safe for soaking.

Your hot tub can provide endless hours of fun and relaxation. Keep it in working order by caring for it properly. Contact companies like Anchor Pools & Spas for more tips.
