We rigorously test your hot tub after the install, going over everything to make sure all is well. With careful care and maintenance, your hot tub should last for decades. These are steps to take in establishing a healthy routine to ensure that it does:

Regular Water Testing

Importance: The key to a healthy hot tub experience lies in maintaining balanced water chemistry.

Routine: Test the water at least once a week using a reliable water testing kit. Adjust pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels as needed. Having balanced water chemistry prevents skin and eye irritation and keeps your hot tub churning along.

Appropriate Temperatures

Importance: Maintaining the correct water temperature is essential for safety and comfort, particularly for children.

Routine: Keep your hot tub temperature between 100° and 102°. Adjust the temperature based on personal preference, but avoid excessively high temperatures to prevent skin irritation/damage and/or overheating.

Consistent Cleaning and Draining

Importance: Clean water is crucial for a hygienic and enjoyable hot tub environment.

Routine: Regularly clean your hot tub surfaces, filters, and skimmer baskets. Drain and refill your hot tub every 3-4 months to prevent the buildup of contaminants. Clean the cover and apply an additional layer of UV protectant to make sure it remains effective and sealed to retain heat and keep debris out.

Practice Hydration and Time Management

Importance: Prolonged soaks can lead to dehydration and other health issues.

Routine: Staying hydrated – drinking a glass of water before and after each hot tub session – supports circulation, aids in detoxification, and promotes overall well-being.

Regular System Checks

Importance: Ensuring all hot tub components are in good working order prevents unexpected issues and interruptions to your soaking schedule.

Routine: Periodically check the hot tub’s jets, pumps, and control panel for any signs of wear or malfunction. Address issues promptly to avoid larger problems or call the Poynter Landscape pros at 636-256-2600 or reach out to us online with any questions.

Proper Filtration

Importance: Your filter plays an important role in removing impurities and maintaining water clarity.

Routine: Clean the filter every two weeks and replace it as recommended by the manufacturer. A clean filter improves water circulation and enhances the efficiency of your entire hot tub system.
