Hot tubs are awesome, and that fact can never be stated too much. However, it’s essential to have at least a basic understanding of how they work, before you purchase one. Failing to have that understanding can lead to a lot of safety issues and it can also lead to damages that won’t be easy to fix.

First of all, it’s important to note that the water in your hot tub is cycled, cleaned and heated on a regular basis. You don’t have to replace it all the time, and doing that can actually have a negative effect on the hot tub’s functionality because it puts the system under strain.

The tub uses a pump and filter to clean and cycle the water, as well as to deliver those soothing jets that you look forward to after a long day at work. It’s important to be aware of this fact and to avoid using a lot of products and bath salts, since they tend to build up over time, and the filter will not help you much at that point.

As a result of this fact, cleaning the pump, replacing the filter occasionally and cleaning the body of the hot tub itself on occasion is of great importance. Failing to do all that at regular intervals will not only shorten the lifespan of your hot tub, but also lead to possible health problems such as irritation and skin problems contracted due to exposure to contaminated water.  For proper cleaning guidelines discuss them with your hot tub spa Denver dealer at purchase or anytime after.
