The Easy Spa Care Experience!
Nothing beats relaxing in your spa after a hard day’s work, but sometimes cleaning the spa afterward is just as hard! Not with SunGuard Spa Products! …..ok, ok, infomercial voice aside…I honestly believe in these products. They make taking care of your spa much easier and you get to spend more time enjoying and less time cleaning.
Here are some handy tips for keeping your spa clean this fall:
Regular Spa Cleaning
Spa surfaces should be cleaned regularly to remove build-up. Dirt, oil and even bacteria can accumulate at the waterline, looking like a bathtub ring. Regular cleaning of the spa surface preserves the surfaces so the whole spa environment looks and feels better.
What You Need To Do
– Brush and vacuum the spa.
– If you have a skimmer basket, empty it once or twice a week.
Prevent waterline build-up with SunGuard SpaZyme Cleaner. This natural product adds enzymes to the water that digest most oils and eliminates them from the water. Add 1 oz. or four capfuls of SpaZyme Cleaner to your spa water weekly for every 500 gallons. SpaZyme Cleaner will prevent waterline build-up, help keep your filter clean, and prevent foaming.
Draining and Refilling
Regular draining and refilling is a normal part of spa maintenance. Over time, the spa water will absorb dissolved minerals, chemicals and other material. This may make the water cloudy and irritating, indicating it’s time to change the water.
How often you should drain and refill your spa depends on how often you use it. With an average use of 2 – 3 times per week, you should drain and replace your spa water every 2 – 3 months. If you use your spa more often, you may need to do this sooner.
How to Drain and Refill
– Drain the spa water. Check your owner’s manual for information.
– Clean filter, cover, and spa surfaces.
– Refill the spa with fresh water.
– Test the spa water and rebalance as needed.
An Ounce of Prevention
It is a good idea to keep an extra filter cartridge handy. When draining your spa you will need to clean the filter cartridge as well. Having an extra filter cartridge on hand will reduce your spa’s down time.
Always keep the cover on your spa when not in use. Whether your spa is indoor or outdoor, the water chemistry is delicate and is potentially susceptible to a multitude of environmental factors. To keep your spa clean and clear between uses, be sure to leave the cover on.
