If you want to enjoy your time in your hot tub or all season pool to the fullest, you’ll need to keep some supplies on hand for cleaning and convenience. To ensure you have everything you need, we’ve compiled a basic list of the necessities.
If you want to keep your spa’s water safe and clean, chemicals are a must. Here is what you’ll need not only to sanitize your water but to ensure your spa stays in good working order.
Keeping a testing kit on hand enables you to test your water to see what chemicals need to be added.
Acidity in the water can fluctuate. To keep it even, add pH up if your water tests low or pH down if it tests high.
Stain and Scale Control
Detergents, lotions, cosmetics and body oils can cause scum and build up on your spa. This product will keep that problem in check.
One of the most important products in your chemical arsenal, bromine is used to neutralize bacteria and sanitize your spa’s water.
Hot Tub Shock
Shock is also a key player in keeping your water clean and clear. It’s main purpose is to remove or prevent foam and cloudiness.
Your spa itself gets most of the love, but don’t forget your hard working filter. A filter cleaner should be used monthly to keep your filter free of dirt and grime.
Chemicals can’t do the job alone. That’s where cleaning ‘hardware’ comes in. You’ll need:
A Spa Net
You really can’t get by without a good-quality spa net. This will enable you to remove debris from the water.
The bottom of your spa also needs attention. A spa vacuum will keep the bottom free of dirt.
A Filter Flosser
While not essential, this tool can make cleaning your spa cartridge filter much easier. It evenly disperses water spray to clean between the filter’s folds.
When it comes to convenience and making your spa use easier, these accessories are our top recommendations:
A cover will not only help to keep the water clean, it helps your spa maintain its temperature. So, not only will you need fewer chemicals to keep your water clean, it can lower your energy bill.
Covers are heavy. Having a lifter will not only save you from hurting your back, it makes removing the cover a one-person job.
While not essential, steps making getting in and out of your spa much easier. It can also be a safety factor because the area around your spa can get slippery when wet. Adding steps to the side will help prevent falls getting in or out of the spa.
Your hot tub or all season pool will work well year after year with the right care and maintenance. Having the supplies you need to care for your spa is essential to you enjoying it for many years to come.
