Hot tubs, like most machines, do not run without a little care and attention.
It is essential you understand and stick to a regular routine to ensure your hot tubs in UK
are is safe for both you and other people to use.
When you buy your hot tub you need to get good advice and ensure you can obtain water treatment products, advise, servicing and parts from a specialist local dealer. With good local dealers you can be sure that you will be able to obtain good service and quality parts all year round. Sadly this is not always the experience of people who purchase from the Internet - although there are also good on-line sellers.
Maintaining your hot tub need not take more than three minutes a day- literally the same time as boiling an egg. It is vital to use a sanitiser such as chlorine or bromine as the water will quickly and needlessly become bacterial otherwise.
It really is as easy as using dipstick style test strips to test your sanitiser levels and pH levels. It takes just a few moments to check the levels before enjoying the tub.
When the levels need adjusting you use one scoop (approximately 40grams) to adjust the levels per square on the test strips using the appropriate water treatment product. And there are products available at extremely reasonable prices to restore clarity to water, reduce stain and scale build up.
Filtration is one of the most important parts about a hot tub. Like a flowing river, your tubs filtration aids water health and prevents the water from ever going stagnant- even when youre away on holiday.
