Now you’ve purchased your own hot tub you can spend as much time as you like enjoying all the great things it has to offer. You’ll find it will improve your life in many ways so make the most of it to help you relax or improve one of many recognised health conditions. However, you’ll also want to keep your newly acquired hot tub in the best possible condition. After all, it’s no good neglecting it after investing your hard earned cash so we teamed up with Vita Spa Hot Tubs to take a look at how you can do just that.
Invest In A Decent Cover
A decent cover for your hot tub or spa is not a cheap item but is certainly essential, so do everything you can to make it last as long as possible. Taking some simple precautions will do just that, so when you add chemicals to the water make sure you leave the cover off for at least ten minutes. This is because chemicals give off gases when added to the water and if you replace the cover immediately, those gases will get trapped beneath and can cause your cover to deteriorate over time.
Maintain Your Existing Cover
Another way of making sure your cover lasts as long as possible is to make sure you don’t drag it off when removing it. Dragging it across your patio or other hard surface will not do it any favours and can cause damage that will let water in. This will add weight to your cover which over time will result in a new cover being required. By using a cover lifter to remove it, you will avoid any costly damage.
Shower Before Use
It’s a good idea to perhaps take a shower before using your hot tub to cut down on the amount of body lotion, deodorant or even fake tan that can cause havoc with the condition of the water; these tips may seem like common sense, but they will make a real difference to the life span of your hot tub.
