Taking care of your jacuzzi and preparing systems will also ensure that it stays at tip-top shape for years to come. Take care of your jacuzzi or spa, they are long term investments which will add to your property value.

Here are three tips for Jacuzzi and Spa owners:

1. Stick to a regular cleaning routine

It is important to regularly sanitize your hot tub and its filters. Dirty filters are one of the top reasons for jacuzzi owner complaints. When filters are left uncleaned jacuzzis and spas will not properly heat. Use a filter cleaner and spray or soak your filters to improve filter life and efficiency. If your filters are two or three years old it is time to replace them, we recommend always having a spare clean filter on hand. Along with the filters, you’ll want to drain your hot tub every 3-4 months for a thorough cleaning. Once you drain the water, it is important to clean and disinfect it properly. When this is done refill your jacuzzi and it will be good as new. It is also important to keep the water chemistry in balance making proper use of pool chemicals.

2. Invest in a high-quality hot tub cover

It is important to keep your jacuzzi covered when it is not in use. A cover will keep your hot tub clean and free from bugs and other unwanted guests from the natural world. A high-quality hot tub cover has many other benefits as well. A cover that is well- insulated keeps the water warm which will help save you a significant amount in energy costs. If you choose a solar hot tub cover, not only will it help you save, but it will keep your jacuzzi clean and protected from inclimate weather and other unpleasant things from the outdoors, such as sand and debris.

3. Maintain a constant temperature and water level

If you have a well insulated hot tub cover then you have a much easier time with temperature maintenance. When it comes to water levels, water evaporates faster during the cold, dry weather. It is important that the water level stays above the skimmer line to continue to have effective filtration and ensuring your jets operate properly. During the winter months keep a garden hose away from exterior elements (a warm garage is recommended) so when your jacuzzi needs to be refilled, it can be done with an optimal tool.
