How to maintain your jacuzzi hot tub in 5 simple steps

  1. 1. How to Maintain Your Jacuzzi Hot Tub in 5 Simple Steps Written By: Sheila Summers A Jacuzzi hot tub is an expensive investment and it requires consistent maintenance and care if you intend on using it for a long time. There are a few steps that you must follow in order to get the most out of your hot tubs and make sure that they last for the decades to come. Here are those 5 steps: 1. Test the Water in Your Jacuzzi Hot Tub Weekly Testing the water in the tub is very important in order to make it known whether the water composition is good and safe. It is also crucial in showing whether the tub is free from problems such as scaling, mineral buildup, and unpleasant-smelling water. The test tests will establish the action to take if case the Jacuzzi hot tub experience problems. In case it does happen, you may have to use and add additives to the water to maintain the perfect balance. Testing the water depends on the type of hot tubs. Newly bought hot tubs usually come with testing strips or drops which are meant for the Jacuzzi hot tub type. For hot tubs which use bromine, the test strip will show the levels of chlorine, bromine, alkalinity, and water pH. Chlorine disinfected hot tubs on the other hand, is tested for the water pH and alkalinity. If you have a naturally purified Jacuzzi hot tub, the test strip shall indicate the levels of “monopersulfates” in the water along with its pH level and alkalinity.

  2. 2. 2. Know the Chemicals You Put in the Tub Maintaining the correct pH level in the Jacuzzi hot tub could be fairly manageable if you understand the function of adding the chemicals. There are many varying products for hot tubs with low pH levels while there are those that with extremely high pH. It is however very important to ensure that your hot tub has its purifier in at all times whether natural or bromine based. 3. Giving Your Jacuzzi Hot Tub Shock Treatment With hot tub maintenance, add a stronger (than the regular) dose of sanitizer at least once a week. Jacuzzi hot tub owners are advised to shock their tubs depending on the number of times that they use it in week. If you use the tub about one to four times in a week then a single weekly shock is perfect, but in case you use it more frequently then two shocks weekly should do it. This also applies for bromine and chlorine sanitized hot tubs. If your hot tub has a natural purifier, you might also want to do a light shock after each use aside from the heavy shock treatment per week. 4. Keep the Pump Filter Clean Every Jacuzzi hot tub comes with a manufacturer’s instructions on how the pump and pump filter are cleaned. With these in mind, you have to ensure that there’s no debris clogging the filter basket. This in turn will make sure that the hot tubs are in perfect running condition. 5. Let the Pumps Run If the water in the Jacuzzi hot tub remains stagnant for long periods of time, it will become sufficient grounds for bacterial and fungal colonies. It’s best to let the pumps run for most of the day, or if possible all day long. If you choose to have the pumps operating for a particular number of hours per day then you may purchase timers which turn your hot tubs pump on and off automatically.
