Your water will need to be changed at least once every six months. If you use it quite often then you may want to reduce this to once every two months. Whenever you change the water, you should always clean the tub completely. Don’t forget to use some descaler! This will not only keep it looking fantastic, but it will also ensure that it stays in perfect working order.
Whenever you are using the hot tub, you will want to make sure that everybody who will be using it showers beforehand. It is the lotions that are used on the body which causes the foaming that I mentioned previously. Showering will wash off most of these lotions.
It is also important that people only use swimwear, no other clothing. Other clothes are not treated for water use and can actually mess up the chemical balance, as well as create even more foam. Not just that, other clothes can make the hot tub leak by tearing it with zips,buttons or rivets.
Finally, make sure you have a cover on your hot tub at all times. It will not only keep the water clean, but it will also lock the heat in. This will save you a lot of money on your energy bills! Don’t forget to condition your cover every couple of months. This will stop it from cracking.
