What Does Our Hanover Plumber Have to Say?
Consider your hot tub the crown jewel of your backyard. In order for it to continue glimmering and reeling guests in with its serene appearance, here’s what you can do to make it the place to be when the temperatures dip:
- Drain and Refill Tub: It’s always the healthy choice to drain the water in your hot tub every so often to keep sanitary for all its inhabitants. Draining and refilling the tub will prevent the spread and growth of harmful bacteria as well as the buildup of any soap or detergent. Keeping things healthy should always be the name of the game in hot tub maintenance.
- Scrub Surface: The surface of your hot tub may look nice now, but it can suffer from a buildup of dirt and other stains that detract from its appearance. Take a sponge and scrub the walls and surface of your hot tub. This can also be done when you’re in the process of draining and refilling the tub for greater effectiveness in getting rid of every last patch of dirt.
- Clean Filters: You should clean your filters monthly and if you notice they’re damaged extensively, get them replaced. Cleaning filters in your hot tub will expands its lifespan so you can use your hot tub this fall and the next and the next!
- Keep It Covered: When your hot tub isn’t in use, always keep it covered. Fall is known for leaves, twigs, and other debris flailing around everywhere due to wind and can land in your hot tub if its uncovered, making you spend more time cleaning it out. A cover will keep it clean and always ready to go!
