Anything Wet Pools & Spas knows that empowering customers with the basic techniques for keeping their home spas clean will ultimately create a healthier experience. Over time, spas especially can be a breeding ground for bacteria as a result of the warm temperatures, and following the necessary steps will prevent that from happening.
- Create a cleaning schedule and maintain it. Keeping the filter clean is particularly important, and you should plan to replace it once each year. Regularly replacing the water will prevent buildup of grease and oil. Spa surface cleaners will safely remove scum. In addition, choose a cleaner and conditioner for your cover and treat it once per month or as needed.
- Every 90 days, change the water. The sanitation chemicals you use will accumulate over time, so using a cleaner to remove that buildup will help your tub appear new and shiny.
- Choose the sanitation chemicals that you like the most and implement a schedule according to the directions. Chlorine, Bromine, and Biguanide are all common sanitation agents that function to achieve the same effect. While chlorine typically comes highly recommended, others opt for Bromine or Biguanide because they produce fewer odors at high temperatures.
- Regularly test your tub water’s pH level. If the water is too basic or acidic, it can damage your tub and equipment. You can adjust the levels if they’re not quite right; they should fall between 7.2 and 7.7.
