Is a Hot Tub Hard to Maintain?

Before investing in a new hot tub for your home, you’ll want to be prepared for the maintenance that will be required to keep it up and running. Many homeowners are concerned that a hot tub will be too hard to maintain, which keeps them from purchasing one and enjoying all the benefits it can offer. However, today’s hot tub models are designed to make it easier than ever to maintain your spa and keep it up and running.

How to Maintain Your Hot Tub

There are several elements to hot tub maintenance, including circulating the water and keeping the water balanced. Some hot tub models include an automatic water circulation feature to help ensure the water doesn’t stay stagnant for too long. To keep the water clean and balanced, you’ll need to use a sanitizer regularly and test the water to ensure proper pH levels. Fortunately, the chemicals and cleaning agents for maintaining a spa are inexpensive and easy to find.

In addition to regular maintenance, you’ll occasionally want to drain the hot tub and clean it, check that the jets are working properly, and clean or replace the filters. When purchasing a new spa for your home, your pool and spa company can help you understand the specific care and maintenance requirements for the model you choose.

Professional Maintenance Services

Another option you can consider if you’re concerned about maintaining a hot tub is to have a professional pool and spa company handle the maintenance. These services can typically be adjusted to suit your needs, from comprehensive services to supplemental check-ups. While hot tub maintenance is something that homeowners can handle on their own, some prefer the ease and convenience of having a pool and spa company handle it instead.
