How can proper aftercare increase the lifetime of your hot tub?

After the initial set up, maintaining water quality is straightforward and allows you to enjoy a consistently brilliant experience whilst getting the best value out of your tub and protecting your investment for years to come. If you own one of our Hydropool Self Cleaning hot tubs, this is even simpler as the hot tub takes care of the cleaning for you, but for other hot tubs, here are our aftercare tips to help you achieve the best value out of your hot tub.

Creating and Following Routine

There are a number of steps you can take to ensure the longevity of your hot tub. These should be completed on a consistent schedule - the frequency of which varies based upon the task. For example, it is good practise to drain the tub and clean the outer shell every three months. For our customers, we offer these services as part of our After Sales care, but for those who want to tackle the care and maintenance of the hot tub themselves, establishing a routine of testing the water quality, filters and systems, draining and refilling the tub, and cleaning the different parts can help prolong the life and ensure the water stays crystal clear.

To see the full range of maintenance tasks that we offer as a part of our after-sales care, and read our advice on how best to approach these, take a look at our hot tub services page here.

Protecting your Hot Tub

A great way to help prolong the life of your tub is to ensure it is properly protected from the elements. One of the easiest and most effective ways to do this is with a high quality hot tub cover. Your cover protects your hot tub from the weather, which is essential as rain, snow and heavy storms can all take a toll on the life of your tub. For this reason, it is worth looking after your cover, being careful when removing it or clearing debris as to prevent tearing.

Another effective way of protecting your swim spa is by installing a gazebo or another type of enclosure to surround the tub. This not only offers excellent protection from the elements, but also creates a space of ultimate relaxation and pleasure as well as providing additional privacy. Installing a custom hot tub enclosure is the perfect way to create a romantic space to relax with cocktails in the evening, or establish an elegant oasis for casual lunches and family swims.
