A swim spa is an amazing addition to your home, offering a luxurious and therapeutic…
So you have your swim spa and are regularly swimming laps, utilizing the heating elements for therapy, and having friends over to relax. Now what? Ensure that your fun, healthy investment stays pristine by implementing a regular maintenance program. It is easier to do small maintenance tasks here and there instead of shelling out a lot of money to pay for expensive fixes later on.
- Invest in a quality swim spa cover. End 2 End Swim Spa Covers are made with durable, UV-resistant materials that form a tight seal over the swim spa, thereby keeping heat in and unwelcome environmental elements out. Lightweight yet durable, End 2 End Swim Spa Covers are able to be placed on and taken off by one person. Even better, End 2 End customizes each cover for your unique swim spa, so you can be assured that you are getting the highest quality and best fit. If you do not opt for End 2 End Swim Spa Covers with their UV-treatment, then you will need to condition your cover every month to protect against UV damage. UV damage can cause cracking and breaking in the cover, negating its efficacy.
- Test the water twice a week. Chemical strips are the easiest and quickest way to perform this task. Ensure that your pH is around 7.4 to 7.8; anything lower or higher will need to be adjusted. Also test for calcium hardness and alkalinity, as water that is too hard and full of minerals will degrade the swim spa elements. When you are adding chemicals, only add one at a time and wait at least two hours before adding the next chemical. This ensures the chemical is distributed around the swim spa evenly and also guards against any adverse reactions between chemicals.
- Change the water two to four times a year. Setting a schedule around holidays is the easiest way to remember – Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and Labor Day, for instance. Use whatever schedule system works best for your time constraints and lifestyle, but changing the water is imperative in prolonging the life and efficiency of your swim spa.
Following these three steps will give you and your family an enjoyable, clean, and healthy swim spa experience. Don’t delay in obtaining a high-quality and durable End 2 End Swim Spa Cover –contact us today for a quote!
