There are only a handful of people in the entire world who cannot be enticed into a bubbling warmth of a Jacuzzi on a cold evening.
If you are fortunate enough to have a Jacuzzi in your home, then no doubt you will want it in full working order at the touch of a button.
Jacuzzi maintenance is simple enough, but does require frequent checks to make sure it’s safe and clean.
How can you maintain your Jacuzzi?
It’s important to understand that even though you have a relatively small body of water (compared to a swimming pool), you still need to maintain optimal chemical levels. Any standing water is going to start to stagnate after just a few days, and ongoing Jacuzzi maintenance is far more beneficial than having to empty and replace the water.
Cloudy water, the presence of algae, or foaming, are all symptoms of incorrect chemical levels. Talk to a professional to find out the optimal chemical balance in your Jacuzzi. Once you know this, you can keep a home testing kit available, and a selection of the chemicals that you need. Test strips should be used twice a week so that you can keep a close eye on the levels and tweak as necessary.
Keep your Jacuzzi covered when it’s not in use: the pump and filters can block up pretty quickly in the presence of leaves, dirt, and insects. It also helps to keep the heat in which reduces your electricity usage.
Whether you use your Jacuzzi every day, or less frequently, you will still need to replace the water every so often. Depending on use, we recommend fresh water at least twice a year. You can use this time to give your Jacuzzi and its pipework a thorough clean out.
