Most of us have to make do with the public baths to enjoy the benefits of a Jacuzzi, but if you're lucky enough to own a home spa then you'll also know the upkeep of your home spa is important. A lot of health and technical issues can arise if you don't properly maintain your hot tub and look after it as best as possible, and in the long-run it might even cause you to lose money. Here are some simple ways to keep your home spa running efficiently whilst cutting some of those frustrating costs.
Check the Water RegularlyLike a public swimming pool, the water in your home spa needs to be treated and monitored carefully to make sure everything is healthy. Using chlorine or bromine treatments is a good way to keep the water clean; just keep in mind that you need to check the pH levels and the best level is 7.4 (the same pH level as a human eye). Too much of any sanitiser can be extremely uncomfortable and dangerous, whilst two little prevents the water from being as clean as it could be.
It's also recommended that you buy hot tub chemicals from dedicated swimming pool and spa stores. The higher you pay, the better the quality.
