Yes, hot tubs maintenance should be regular, if you want to have a healthy, clean water. It’s also important to have the right chemicals, to change filters and, if you notice a problem, to know how long it will take the technicians to fix it. What are the key points for hot tub maintenance?

Hot tub maintenance – Water purity is important

One of the key elements of hot tub maintenance is keeping the water you want to relax in clean. To do this, you need to follow a few steps, which are as follows:

Water Chemistry:

  1. Testing: Regularly test the water for pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels (chlorine, bromine, etc.). This is one of the most important steps to clean water.
  2. Balancing: Adjust the water chemistry to keep it within the recommended ranges to prevent damage to the tub and ensure a safe soaking environment. Be careful with the proportions, if you put a little more of one of the chemicals in the hot tub it will upset the chemistry of the hot tub.
  3. Sanitizing:
    • Add sanitizers regularly to keep the water clean and free from harmful bacteria and algae. With clean, healthy water, you’re already doing a lot to extend the life of your hot tub.
    • Shock the water periodically to break down organic contaminants.

Hot tub maintenance – cleaning all surfaces

Another important aspect of hot tub maintenance is keeping the elements clean, which are essential for perfect operation. You don’t have to think about anything major, simple cleaning requires the following:

  1. Cleaning:
    • Filters: Clean or replace the filters regularly, typically every 1-2 weeks. They are easy to clean with a simple water wash and replacing them is child’s play.
    • Surface: Wipe down the tub surfaces to prevent buildup of scum and grime. It doesn’t require serious condiments either.
    • Draining and Refilling: Completely drain and refill the hot tub every 3-4 months, or as recommended by the manufacturer. You may need to change your water more often, especially if you use, for example, well water to fill it up.
  2. Cover Maintenance:
    • Clean and condition the hot tub cover to prevent damage from UV rays and moisture. Especially if it is made of leather. The Wellis Blactex cover only needs to be washed if it is very dirty, but the leather needs to be cared for.
    • Ensure the cover is in good condition to maintain energy efficiency and keep debris out.

Don’t forget the steps below

If you’ve completed the water maintenance steps and your cover is in order, there are other useful things to do for maintenance:

  1. Equipment Checks:
    • Inspect the pumps, heater, and other mechanical components regularly to ensure they are functioning properly.
    • Address any leaks, unusual noises, or performance issues promptly to prevent more significant problems.
  2. Winterizing (if applicable):
    • If you live in a region with freezing temperatures and do not use the hot tub in winter, proper winterizing is crucial to prevent damage from frozen water in the pipes and equipment.

If you follow all of these, you can use your hot tub day after day for years to come. Choose from the great models of Wellis and enjoy the pampering in your home!
