When you’ve invested your hard earned money in an item such as a hot tub or spa, the last thing you need to do is neglect it so that it doesn’t perform as it should. But what products should you use to keep your hot tub in tip top condition and why? We asked the experts; AquaSpaSupplies.co.uk.
Pipework Showing Signs Of Build Up Of Soap and Oil?
After a while, it’s natural that your pipework will begin to show signs of a build up of soap and oil deposits. We climb in our hot tubs after using soap, deodorant, shower gel, sun tan lotion and other products on our bodies and these will transfer from our bodies into the water along with the natural oils our bodies produce. One effective way of clearing these build ups from the pipework is to use a Hot Tub Flush. Naturally this powerful cleaner will need to be used just before you plan on emptying your hot tub and whilst the pumps are turned on to allow it to reach all areas. Leave it for 12 hours before you then drain your hot tub leaving clean pipework once again.
The Need For A Clean Filter
One of the necessities for having a clean hot tub or spa is to have a clean filter, so if you are having problems getting your filter really clean then it’s maybe time to look at how you are doing it. One product that will help with this is Spa Marvel Filter Cleaner, although after soaking in the product you will also need to remove the debris in an effective manner.
Rinsing Under A Tap Is Not Enough…
Rinsing under a tap is not enough, neither is spaying it with a shower head so you may find it easier to use either a pressure washer, if you already have one or the sprayer at your local car wash. After a thorough clean your filter will work effectively once more.
At the end of the day, it’s important that you take the time to clean your hot tub on a regular basis to prevent the build up of dirt and grime and, above all else, ensure it’s hygienic. If you clean your hot tub regularly, you’ll ultimately find it far quicker to do than if it’s done only every once in a while and, as far as we’re concerned, best practice is to give it a quick clean after every use.
As with everything, cleaning your hot tub is far easier with the right products and, with such an extensive range available, it’s simply a case of browsing and purchasing those which best suit your individual hot tub and cleaning routines.
