It was a long drawn out cold and wet winter that never seemed to end and now we are nearly at the end of May but what a change in the weather we have had; beautiful wall to wall sunshine and not just for one isolated day.

I don’t know about you but this weather has definitely had us out in the garden after work and at the weekend.  In fact I’m not sure our garden has had so much attention in years.  We have been so glad or our hot tub to soak our aching gardening muscles and we have managed to enjoy some incredible sunsets.


 Many of you are like us and are seasoned hot tub users but even the most experienced of hot tub owners can let their hot tub maintenance slide.  Our busy lives and work schedules just get in the way sometimes.


Here are our top 3 hot tub checklist tips:


  • Chemical Balance – we all know it is important to have the correct level of chemical sanitiser in the water whether it be bromine, chlorine or oxygenating but what we must also ensure is that our pH balance is correct.  The pH of your hot tub water should be between 7.2 and 7.6.  This ensures that your sanitiser is at its most efficient any lower and the water becomes acidic, this can cause corrosion to seals.  Any higher and you can develop a calcium scale both internally in the pipework and externally on the shell.

  • Cover Condition – the average hot tub cover weighs around 30kg which is easily manageable with two people.  If you are thinking that your cover seems heavy it might be time for a new one.  Only the other day we had to chop up an old cover in order to lift it as it had become so heavy.  To keep your vinyl supple and water proof you should treat with protectant spray.
  • Filters – an average pleated hot tub filter will last a good 12 months if maintained well and cleaned monthly.  If you have a Sundance Spas hot tub some of the filters are disposable and need to be replaced every 3 or 6 months.  Time passes by quickly and it is easy to forget to replace your filter.  The filters can get blocked over time which then puts unnecessary pressure on the pumps.  Check when you last changed yours.
