Swimming Pools: Keeping Summers Cool, Refreshed and Safe

Up until last year, my family spent every summer at the beach. My spouse and I didn't want to invest in a swimming pool because we thought it'd be expensive and hard to maintain. But after my youngest child developed a skin infection from the beach's sand, we changed our minds. We contacted a pool contractor in our area that offered many different types of pools. We decided to go with an above ground pool because it seemed easier to keep up than an inground pool. Plus, our kids were safe from dangerous germs. If you need a swimming pool for your home, read my blog. I show you how to find the best options for your family and why you should choose them.

3 Different Services That A Spa Service Can Offer You

When it comes to taking care of your spa, you want to make sure that you are doing all that you can to extend the life of your spa. There are certain things that you can do on your own to keep your spa in good condition, such as putting a cover over it when it is not in use, but when it comes to more in-depth ways to care for your spa, it is a good idea to hire a professional. A spa service can help to clean and repair your spa correctly, helping to extend the life of your spa. This article will discuss 3 things that a spa service can do to care for your spa.

Deep Clean Your Spa

While you likely clean leaves and other debris out of your spa on a regular basis, it still needs to be deep cleaned. This type of cleaning involves certain tools and chemicals for scrubbing the hard water deposits off of the interior of your hot tub, and often times will require the draining of your hot tub. Since this process is such an in-depth one, it is an excellent idea to hire a spa service to do it for you. They will not only have the knowledge necessary to properly scrub your hot tub clean, but they will also bring all of their own tools with them.

Repair and/or Replace Your Filter

Since your filter is what is used to keep your hot tub water clean and sanitary, it is important to have one that is functioning at 100%. Over time, filters get too full of dirt and debris, and they need to be changed out. This can be done by the spa service if you would like. Also, if your filter is not pumping for one reason or another, the spa service will be able to come out and diagnose and fix the problem for you. This often will save you money in the long run because you won't waste time and money yourself trying to figure out what needs to be fixed.

Chemically Balance The Water In Your Spa 

It is important to have the correct balance of chemicals in the water in your spa or else bacteria can grow. You may also have problems with the water hurting your skin, if the chemicals in your water are too strong. A professional from the spa service can come out and test your water, which will then allow them to determine the appropriate amount of each chemical needed to make your spa safe and functional for you. They will then add these chemicals and continue testing your water until it is well balanced.
