Tips For Keeping Your Hot Tub In Great Shape For A Long Time

Irene Montgomery

If you have a hot tub, you will want to make sure that you are doing everything you can in order to keep it in the best possible shape. To help you do just that, you will want to spend a little time reviewing the tips found here.

Keep It Clean

While you will add some chemicals to the water to help keep it clean and disinfected, that is not always enough. A couple times a year, especially if you use the hot tub all year, you will want to completely empty the water and hand clean the hot tub. All you need to use is a mild soap and you will need to make sure that you are getting all of the soapy water out of the hot tub before you fill it back up. Once the hot tub has been filled back up, you can take a water reading to determine how much chlorine you need to add back into the water.

Keep The Cover On When It's Not In Use

It is very important to make sure that you are keeping the cover on the hot tub when it is not in use. The reason is because you do not want a collection of dead bugs, twigs, and leaves ending up in the water. Sure, you could try scooping some of it out with a net, but a lot of it might fall to the bottom. You do not want all of that mess going through your hot tub filtration system, because that would cause it to have to work so much harder. The harder your hot tub filtration system has to work, the sooner it could malfunction. Therefore, once you are done with hot tub for the night, you will want to place the cover back on.

Replace The Cover And Motor As Needed

Once you start to hear that your hot tub motor is starting to make a lot of terrible noise, you will want to start looking for a replacement. Also, you want to pay extra attention to the condition of the hot tub cover, especially the underside of it that faces the water. If it is starting to fall apart or become covered in mildew or mold, it is time to toss it out and get another one.

With those tips in mind, along with any others that you find, you will have an easy time keeping your hot tub in great shape for many years to come.

Adding Value to My Home

My husband and I are considering selling our small brick home in the near future. While we’ve completed some work on this house recently, we know we will need to do a few more things before we put it on the market. For instance, we need to replace some of the flooring, paint some of the walls, and replace some of the siding on the front porch. In addition, we may want to add a pool to the backyard. Because we live in the hot southern United States, many of our neighbors have pools. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of pools to install in a home you may sell in the near future. Enjoy!
