A spa is a big investment. If you’re looking into purchasing an above-ground spa for your home, you want to ensure it’s a top-quality spa that will provide your family joy and fun for years to come. Here at Just Spas, we understand that desire, which is why we want to help you get the spa of your dreams!
A cheap, poorly-made spa won’t get you very far. Fun days and memory-making will be cut short after a few months once your spa breaks down, the heating stops working, or something else goes awfully wrong. That isn’t a concern with the premium range of above-ground spas and swim spas we stock here at Just Spas. We’ve handpicked the best spas on the market, so you can rest assured when you purchase one of our spas that it’ll last for years.
However, having a quality spa doesn’t mean you can completely slack on maintenance. Like any modern technology, hot tubs need to be kept in tip-top shape if you want them to last a lifetime. Proper maintenance is an absolute must. But it doesn’t have to be hard! We’re here to help you with this guide on making your spa last for years to come. Keep reading to learn more!
Maintaining and inspecting your spa regularly to ensure it is in good running condition is very important when it comes to increasing the longevity of your above-ground spa or swim spa. This means checking all the components of your hot tub, such as skimmers, filters, pipes, fittings and lids or covers, to ensure everything is in good working order. It’s very easy to do this yourself. However, if you’re unsure or not confident that you are checking the equipment properly, always ask a professional
Consistently performing these routine maintenance tasks can help identify any potential issues early on, preventing them from becoming more serious problems that require costly repairs. Additionally, regularly cleaning your spa can help to keep it looking great for years to come and prevent the buildup of harmful bacteria and other contaminants.
Keep the Water Clean
This one may sound obvious and silly, but keeping the water clean is crucial to increasing your spa’s longevity. And this doesn’t just mean upkeeping the filter. Maintaining the correct pH levels and sanitiser levels in your spa water can help prevent damage to the equipment and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. An imbalance in water chemistry can cause corrosion to your spa’s metal components, and it can also lead to skin irritation and other health issues. Monitoring and adjusting the levels of pH and sanitisers on a regular basis can ensure that your spa water is safe and comfortable for you and your family to use.
Something like the Cyclone MONSOON 6 Seater Spa is really easy when it comes to maintaining water cleanliness. With its premium water management system, you can easily monitor and adjust your spa’s water chemistry to keep it in the optimal range for years of enjoyment.
Use a Spa Cover
The above-ground spas stocked at Just Spas come with covers for a reason. Not only do they provide an extra layer of insulation, but they also help keep the water clean and protect it from dirt, leaves and other debris, which can help extend the life of your hot tub. Plus, a cover can reduce your spa’s energy consumption, so you don’t have to worry about sky-high electricity bills. Using a cover also protects your spa from the harmful effects of UV rays, which can cause fading and deterioration over time.
If you want to keep your spa cover in tip-top condition just like your spa, you need to look into getting a spa cover lifter. This will ensure your spa cover does not lose shape or deteriorate over time from wear and tear.
When your spa does need repairs, it’s best to have them done by a professional. DIY repairs can often lead to further damage and can void your warranty, whereas a professional can quickly diagnose and repair any issues, helping to extend the life of your spa. A professional repairperson will have the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to properly diagnose and repair any issues with your spa, preventing them from becoming bigger problems down the line. In the long run, investing in professional repairs can save you money by extending the life of your spa and preventing the need for more costly repairs in the future.
