Top Swim Spa Maintenance Tips
1.) Test Your Water Daily
To stay on top of your water care, make sure you test your water every day. This allows you to catch any water quality issues so you can handle it immediately.
2.) Clean Filters Weekly
To keep your swim spa in good health, clean your filters weekly. This allows your filters to keep you water cleaner & eliminates unnecessary strain on your swim spa components.
3.) Keep Up With Water Care Treatment
Make sure you are adding the necessary chemicals needed to keep your water clean and sanitized. If you’re missing one element of your water care system, your water will not be properly sanitized.
4.) Maintain Proper Water Level
Add water to your swim spa regularly to ensure the proper level of water is maintained.
5.) Change Your Water
Make sure to change your water as recommended by your local dealer or manufacturer’s owners manual. If your swim spa water just doesn’t seem to be as clear as it usually is, it’s probably time to do a water change.
6.) Winterize Your Swim Spa
If you’re leaving for the winter, make sure to have your local dealer winterize your swim spa. This is a very involved process & if not done properly, you could risk damaging your swim spa.
7.) Keep Up To Temperature
Keeping your swim spa at the optimal swim temperature is most efficient when you own a swim spa that is insulated properly. Decreasing & then increasing the temperature actually causes the heater to run more than it would to maintain a comfortable temperature.
8.) Keep Cover On
When you’re not using your swim spa, keep the cover on. This keeps it running efficiently & keeps any debris out.
Common Swim Spa Maintenance Questions
1.) How will I know what the water needs?
Your dealer will provide you with easy to read test strips. You’ll dip the test strip in & it’ll instantly show you where your water chemistry is at. If the color of any test squares are out of the “okay” zone, you’ll need to adjust your water chemistry. You can do this easily by reading the instructions on the chemicals needed to balance your water. Or, you can call your local dealer to assist! We’re here to help!
