In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some simple considerations to keep in mind when it comes to hot tub maintenance and upkeep. There are a few variables that will play a major role in determining how much time you need to spend on hot tub upkeep, and these are especially important to any clients who know they don’t want to over-extend themselves in this area.
At Dolphin Pools & Spas, we’re proud to offer a wide range of hot tub options for clients throughout Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah, including gunite spas, Bullfrog spas (we’re a licensed dealer) and more. We’re also happy to offer simple expertise and advice on themes like hot tub maintenance, which we know many of our clients are interested in. Here are a few of the other chief areas to keep an eye on if you’re looking for a hot tub that won’t have too many major maintenance requirements.
How Many Pumps?
One of the key factors that separates certain hot tub models from others is how many pumps they have. In general, it’s a good idea to avoid models with only a single pump – these are more likely to experience issues and require maintenance more often, simply due to the fact that there’s less redundancy built in. Double or even triple-pump models are ideal for anyone who wants a bit of extra durability and reliability when it comes to hot tub ownership.
Keep an Eye on the Filter
The filter is another important factor that plays a key role in how much time you’ll have to spend on maintenance. This is especially true if you’re prone to letting dirt build up and accumulate, since this can lead to more frequent clogs and other incidents that require intervention. The best way to avoid these issues is by simply keeping a close eye on the filter and making sure it’s cleaned out regularly in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Water Care and Chemical Needs
Another vital aspect of hot tub maintenance and upkeep is the need to maintain proper water care and chemistry, especially when it comes to sanitizer levels. For many people, this can be a tricky area – one that requires a bit of time and effort.
However, we’re proud to offer simple tips on how you can keep your spa’s chemical balance in tip-top shape, while still enjoying a comfortable environment. If necessary, we can even handle the water care and chemical needs for you on an ongoing basis – just ask our team about our flexible maintenance plans!
