You’re probably an old hand at balancing your hot tub water and doing routine maintenance. But we have some terrific tricks up our sleeves to make that maintenance a little bit easier. Read on to learn some clever hacks on how you can help keep your spa water sparkling clean.
1. Use Tennis Balls to Attract Dirt
Tennis balls are good for so much more than sports. They’re the ideal remedy for excess dirt.
Simply add some tennis balls to your spa’s skimmer or directly to your spa’s water. The fuzzy material of the balls acts like Velcro for residue and grime. It literally traps oils from lotions and soaps that slip off your body into the water, keeping your water clear. Changing the balls on a regular basis can save you money on spa chemicals because your water won’t require as much to stay balanced.
2. Shower Before You Soak
One of the best ways to keep your spa water clean is to keep dirt, oil and debris from getting into the water in the first place. This can easily be done by having a quick shower before each soak. This can help to wash away oil and dirt from your skin and hair, while at the same time rinsing any soap residue from your bathing suit.
3. Schedule Spa Service
What better way to maintain your spa, than with the help of a spa service professional? You can schedule maintenance when needed or have a technician visit your home on a regular basis to inspect, clean and repair your hot tub or swim spa when needed.
4. Make a Schedule
One of the top reasons why a hot tub doesn’t stay clean is a lack of cleaning. Keep on top of your spa maintenance schedule to prevent the water from getting dirty in the first place. We suggest marking your calendar or setting reminders on your mobile phone to help keep you on track. The longer you stick to a spa maintenance schedule, the easier it will become.
5. Wear a Hat
If you’re wondering how a hat can keep your spa water clean, we have two words for you: long hair. Putting long hair up is not always enough to keep it from getting into the water. And, if a lot of hair falls into your spa, the buildup from shampoo, oil and other products can impact the water’s chemistry. By putting long hair up under a hat, you can keep hair out of the water.
With these handy suggestions, your spa maintenance routine can become a whole lot easier.
