Is It Easy to Maintain a Hot Tub?
Posted on May 25, 2021

Regular hot tub maintenance is necessary to keep your spa running well and ensure that it lasts as long as possible. Always follow the care instructions in your owner’s manual to keep your Edmond hot tubs clean and the water chemistry in balance.

Necessary Hot Tub Maintenance

The first step to hot tub maintenance is the exterior. Wipe down or hose down your cabinetry, and invest in a cover to ensure that the water remains free of debris and contaminants. Maintaining your exterior is not time-consuming, and it is the first line of defense in avoiding hot tub repairs.

The water care for Edmond hot tubs will vary slightly depending on your make and model. Saltwater will be different from a traditional chlorine spa. Most hot tubs will require you to monitor the water chemistry and filtration.

Hot tub filters will vary, but many manufacturers recommend cleaning them between replacements for the best function. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s instructions on how often to clean and replace your filters.

Chemistry

Along with your filters, make sure to keep up with your water chemistry. Once you have everything set up and your water chemistry balanced, keep it that way. Use the test strips to determine how your water chemistry levels are over time, then make adjustments accordingly. There are ways to improve your water cleanliness. For example, Bullfrog Spas offers the WellSpring Ozone Purifier to keep the water clean while decreasing the amount of maintenance needed. If you have any questions about maintaining your water chemistry or water filters, we would be more than happy to answer them for you.

Most manufacturers recommend emptying and cleaning out your spa roughly once a year, depending on the setting and how often you use it. This drain and fill will help prevent issues caused by the build-up of oils and chemicals on the skin.

Regular maintenance does not take long, and it can extend the life of your spa. If you do need any hot tub repairs, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our team will go the extra mile to keep your spa in excellent working order.
