Maintenance Tips that will Extend the Life of Your Hot Tub
Adjust chemicals weekly: This
seems like an obvious tip, but you'd be surprised at how many
people don't even test their spa water for weeks on end !
number one repair problem people have is "no heat"
caused by their heater coil being corroded. If you don't keep a
good eye on your water chemistry (especially Ph &
Alkalinity), you run the risk of prematurely rotting away your
heater coil. Make sure all chemical levels are within the proper
Change water bi-monthly: It is a
good idea to completely drain and refill your spa every 8 weeks
or so. If you do not use the spa often, you may be able to go 12
weeks between water changes.
Making sure that your spa has
fresh water periodically will also guard against the possibility
of your heater coil corroding prematurely. It also helps retard
"acrylic blisters" (lumps in the acrylic spa shell).
Know your equipment: You don't
have to be an expert spa repairman, but it does help to re-read
the instruction manual you got with your spa and familiarize
yourself with the basic components of your system. You should be
able to at least identify the heater, pump, air blower, GFCI,
timer, control box, filter, thermostat and high limit reset. Feel
free to give us a call if you have questions.
Clean filter frequently: Clogged
or dirty filters will not only strain your pump, but can also
cause inadequate heat problems. Clean weekly if possible.
