The thought of spending an evening soaking in your hot tub probably brings a smile to your face. That smile might disappear, though, when you remember that it’s time to do some maintenance on your hot tub. What a chore, and what a bore! Isn’t there an easier way? Well, yes. You’d be surprised that, with the aid of technology, maintaining a hot tub is a lot less work than it used to be, and it gets easier every year. If you’re looking for a smarter way to care for your hot tub, here’s how to minimize hot tub maintenance with technology.
Energy-efficient technology has really changed hot tub necessary maintenance over the years. How? Simple: the more energy-efficient your hot tub is, the less maintenance it needs! Fewer filter changes, fewer chemicals needed, fewer drains and refills, fewer parts to be replaced, the list goes on. High-quality hot tubs these days are designed to go further on less. So if you’re looking for a hot tub that’s low maintenance, look for one that’s super energy efficient.
Also, here’s a couple of tips to make your hot tub even more energy-efficient:
- Keep it covered when not in use. A hot tub cover provides insulation and prevents evaporation, which means you don’t have to run the heater continuously. That way, your spa water stays warmer for more extended periods.
- Turn the temperature down. Especially now that’s it’s summer in Texas, your hot tub doesn’t need to be, well, hot. Not only will this give it a bit of a breather, but it can also prevent your hot tub from overheating. This will definitely ensure its longevity.
Although hot tub manuals are always a good resource to turn to with maintenance questions, sometimes locating the information you need is time-consuming. How-to videos save you a lot of time and provide helpful visuals to guide you through hot tub maintenance. If you are ever confused while maintaining your hot tub, we have plenty of how-to videos to refer to as needed and other resources.
Spa Water Care
One of the most innovative technologies for hot tub maintenance is the FreshWater® Salt System. Made exclusively for Highlife® and Limelight® Collection Hot Spring® spas, this revolutionary water care technology keeps your spa clean for up to a full year. It generates chlorine automatically with only a small amount of salt, which means you spend less time mixing and adding chemicals to your spa. All you need to do is change the cartridge three times a year. That’s it! Plus, because the FreshWater® Salt System uses fewer chemicals, it’s gentler on sensitive skin. So say good-bye to dry skin and itchy eyes after a hot tub soak!
