Once in awhile, we ALL have a stressful day. But being able to come home and unwind in a hot tub cannot be beat! Having the hot water bubbling over you allows the troubles of the day to float away. Many times, while enjoying this excellent escape from your stresses, it is easy to forget the importance of your new hot tub’s maintenance.

1. Recognize The Signs Of A Problem

When serious things go wrong with your hot tub, like tripped breakers, a malfunctioning pump, heater failure and other things, of course you would call a professional. However, you need to do your part in maintenance as well.

If you do not properly take care of your spa’s system, you can have a buildup of things like cloudy green water, white scale deposits, and brown water – all of which can cause irritation of the eyes or a strange smell. This is not only annoying but can make family members and friends want to avoid using your new tub!

2. Drain Your Hot Tub Regularly

An easy maintenance step for you that will keep your system in excellent condition, is draining the tub once every three months and keeping the water balanced with the proper chemicals. This spa care tip will help you keep clear, nice smelling water in your tub for you to enjoy!
