Hot Tub Water Care

Hot Tub Water Care

The most important part of owning a hot tub is making sure that it is kept clean and that the water is always clear and properly chemically balanced.

At Hot Tub Manchester, we carry an extensive range of chemicals and cleaners to ensure your hot tub always looks its best.  Our hot tub specialists are always at the end of the phone should you need any help or advice regarding the chemical input of your hot tub. 

We recommend the following cleaning routine:

Cleaning your filter

The more you use your hot tub, the more regularly you should clean your filters.

We recommend a fortnightly clean of your filter. 

We supply filter cleaner at Hot Tub Manchester, just submerge your filter in a clean container with clean water and some of the filter cleaning solution, leave to soak for at least 8 hours or ideally overnight.

We would advise buying an extra filter should you wish to use your hot tub whilst the filter is soaking. 

Cleaning your spa shell

Keeping the shell of your hot tub clean is extremely important.

At Hot Tub Manchester, we recommend using a Tile and Line Cleaner to prevent dirty marks from forming around the waterline and for removing any debris around the shell of the hot tub.

Looking after your hot tub cover

The cover for the hot tub is an integral part of the spa and needs looking after as much as the actual tub itself.

Common damage to hot tub covers can be due to the sun and changing temperatures from summer to winter.

We recommend using a UV vinyl protection spray 3-4 times a year to keep your cover protected from the elements. We also recommend using a cover lifter to remove the cover when using the hot tub.

Using your hot tub chemicals

Hot tub chemicals comprise Chlorine, Bromine, PH Plus and PH Minus.  It is extremely important to make sure that the right amount of each chemical is put into your hot tub.

This process can be tested by using chemical testing strips which will let you know if you have used the correct amount of chemicals.

If you need any help or advice regarding your chemical routine, our hot tub specialists here at Hot Tub Manchester are always happy to advise. 

Using your testing strips

The best way to test that you have the correct amount of chemicals in your hot tub is to use chemical testing strips. To test the chemical balance simply put the test strip into the water and after a few seconds, they will change colour. 

They can then be compared to the coloured squares on the test strip container, if the test strip matches the container then you are good to get into your hot tub, if not then simply add the chemicals in small doses until the balance is correct.
