Hot tubs are an integral part of many households, providing a relaxing and fun way to relax and enjoy time with family or friends. Unfortunately, cloudy hot tub water can quickly ruin the experience; therefore, it is important to take some basic preventative maintenance steps on a regular basis in order to keep your hot tub crystal clear and clean. Here are some tips to help you avoid cloudiness and maintain clear hot tub water.
1. Hot Tub Filter Cleaning: Hot tub filters should be cleaned on a monthly basis or as needed depending on usage. As debris builds up in the filter, it can cause cloudy water. In addition, this buildup can reduce the effectiveness of the filter itself. To clean the filter properly, remove it from the hot tub and rinse it with a garden hose until the water runs clear. For extra-dirty filters, use a filter cleaning solution and allow it to soak for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with the garden hose.
2. Hot Tub Chemicals: Hot tub chemicals help maintain balanced water chemistry levels and prevent bacteria from growing that can also cause cloudy water. Make sure to regularly check your hot tub’s chemical levels (pH, alkalinity, sanitizer) using test strips to ensure they are within acceptable parameters. If needed, add additional chemicals as directed on their packaging in order to restore balance.
3. Hot Tub Circulation: Hot tub circulation is important as it helps circulate fresh water throughout the tub, prevents it from becoming stagnant, and helps keep debris from settling on the bottom of the hot tub. Hot tubs typically come with a circulation pump that should run for several hours each day.
4. Hot Tub Shock: Hot tub shock helps to oxidize organic material in the water and break down any bacteria or contaminants that may be present. Hot tub shock can also help restore clarity to cloudy water and should be used weekly or as needed depending on usage.
By following these simple maintenance tips, you can keep your hot tub crystal clear and safe for use. Enjoy!
