How to Get Your Spa Ready for Spring and SummerPosted: April 12, 2022
With spring here and summer quickly approaching, it’s finally time to start looking forward to some blissful warm weather relaxation in your hot tub from Sundance® Spas. But first, you need to make sure your spa is prepared for the upcoming season.
That’s why we’ve created this easy spring and summer hot tub maintenance checklist with everything you need to know. Once you’ve got all of these items covered, you’re ready for a stress-free spa season.
Drain Your Hot Tub and Clean it Out
You’re going to want a squeaky clean tub this spring and summer, which means a full draining—so get ready to hop in there and scrub it down!
If you’ve cleaned your tub within the last two months or so, you can skip this step, but we suggest you readjust your cleaning schedule so that it coincides with the beginning of each season.
It’s important to make sure the water you’re draining is not full of chlorine, or it can have some rather devastating effects on the surrounding plant life.
Inspect the Tub
Before you refill your tub, take a moment to check out all its various parts to see if any of them are in need of repair, replacement, or cleaning.
Your pumps, pipes, filters, jets, and valves are a lot harder to inspect when your hot tub from Sundance® Spas is full of water. If you find anything out of order, make sure to take care of it before moving forward with any other steps.
Consider a Professional Inspection
You’ll be able to spot some of the more obvious issues with your hot tub once you’ve got it drained. However, you may still want to consider a professional hot tub inspection so you can rest assured that everything is in working order for the spring and summer seasons.
A hot tub inspection can ensure that all of your spa’s systems are working effectively and efficiently, and it can help safeguard against serious safety risks and potential disasters. Should any issues be detected, they can provide you with the hot tub maintenance you need.
Refill Your Hot Tub
Once your tub is cleaned out, and you’re sure that everything is operational, it’s time to get it refilled and prepared for use. Grab a garden hose, throw it in, and turn it on. Then, get your chemicals ready.
Getting the Right pH Levels
Once the tub is full, you can add sanitizing chemicals to the water. Make sure you’ve got chlorine granules, pH increaser, pH decreaser, and some test strips. If you’re struggling to get the balance right, you can always bring a water sample to your local pool supply store, and they’ll be able to help you sort things out.
Once you’ve got the proper pH levels, your hot tub is ready for the warm weather seasons. Enjoy!
