A common misconception about hot tub ownership is the amount of time required for maintenance. By identifying the right water care solution for you, and planning accordingly, keeping your water healthy and balanced can be incredibly easy and only take a few minutes a week!
You’ll need to weigh three main factors when choosing the right water care program for you: quality of water, ease of use, and cost.
While there are a few different combinations of products you could go with, the one that effectively balances these three tenets is the CARE FREE™ water care system.
It ensures that quality of water is prioritized by combining water conditioners, clarifiers, enzyme biofilm disruptors, metal sequestering agents and multi-oxidizing components. But it is also an easy to use weekly 4-in-1 system that does away with a host of conditioning products, by consolidating multiple products into a single two product system, CARE FREE™ and CARE FREE BOOST™. This also means that it’s affordable as a replacement for multiple stand-alone products.
With CARE FREE™ as the foundation of your water care program, you can also add a couple enhancing products for complete peace of mind. If you’re using your hot tub infrequently, consider adding CHLOR DISCS™ to your CARE FREE™ program. This will ensure that a sanitizer is maintained when your hot tub is not in use and prevents having to recover from cloudy water when you’ve been away. If there aren’t long breaks between your hot tub soaks, you only need to add CARE FREE™ to your water once a week and a little CARE FREE BOOST™ after each hot tub use.
And are you thinking about everyone who uses your hot tub? Consider trying SOFT™, for the pleasure of your friends and family, who will find their skin moisturized and the water silky. As a dry skin solution, SOFT™ is a natural boron salt that moisturizes your skin and makes the water silky. SOFT™ is optimized for the CARE FREE™ water care system and universally compatible with all water care systems.
Top Q & A: Balancing Your Water and Thinking Ahead to Winterizing Maintenance
How often should I drain my hot tub?
With an average use of 2 people, soaking 3 to 4 times a week, we recommend draining your hot tub every 4 months. Decrease the interval with more bathers or more frequent use.
How often do I need to add products to my hot tub water?
Depending on the water care system you are running, follow the directions on the labels. Participating Beachcomber Hot Tub stores also offer computer water analysis, totally free. They can test a sample of your water and provide you with a simple ‘recipe’ sheet of products to add to ensure clear, clean water.
How do I properly winterize my hot tub?
Drain your hot tub as per normal and remove the plumbing assembly from the jet pump return line and heater inlet. Please consult your Owner’s Guide for details. Blow air into these lines with a Shop Vac, then suck the water out of the tub and from the pumps. Pour RV anti-freeze into the floor drain and secure the Heatshield cover onto your hot tub.
