Folks, it’s that time of year again where the sun starts heading south for the winter and the cool weather comes in to take its place but here at The Swimming Pool Store we’re not complaining! There’s nothing we love more on an autumn evening than a relaxing dip in a steamy hot tub, it’s the perfect remedy for soothing muscles, easing tension and helping the stress of the day ebb away, all it takes to achieve the perfect hot tub experience is some simple (and we do mean simple) maintenance.
Just like your vitamin tablets and morning coffee there are a couple of essential chemicals that help keep your hot tub happy and healthy: invest in some bromine tablets, pH increasers and decreasers, stain and sale controllers, chlorine tablets, spa shock and cleaning supplies to keep your maintenance easy.
When you initially fill your hot tub with water all you need to do is add your bromine to the filter and your spar shock according to the water volume. It is important to have your water tested so you can be sure of the proper amount of additional chemicals that need to be added. You can test your water yourself using a water treatment kit which is usually comprised of strips with colours and a key, the colours will correlate to instructions such as ‘raise pH’ or ‘add bromine’ to give you an indication of what needs to be done.
As a rule of thumb, to ensure optimum hot tub happiness all you need to do is make sure your filter is clean and your pH level should be kept steady between 7.2 and 7.6, follow these steps and it will always be the perfect time to dive right in.
