3 Tips For Keeping Your Hot Tub Clean

Posted on

When you first got your hot tub, you might have been really excited about it. However, now, you might have noticed that it stays dirty and isn't very easy to clean, which can really put a damper on your enjoyment of it. Luckily, though, there are a few tips that you can follow if you would like to keep your hot tub nice and clean.

1. Make Sure You're Clean When You Get In

First of all, it is important to make sure that you are nice and clean when you get in your hot tub. Even though it might be a "tub," it's not something that you'll want to step into when you are dirty. By taking a quick shower before you get in, you can get rid of dirt and body oil that could otherwise contaminate your hot tub. Additionally, you'll want to keep a mat beside your hot tub so that you can brush off your feet before you get in; otherwise, you could track dirt or debris off of your feet and into the hot tub.

2. Keep a Cover on It

If you have not already invested in a hot tub cover, now is a good time to think about buying one. For one thing, it can help protect hot tubs from getting dirty; this is especially true outdoors, but it can also help prevent dust and other things from getting into an indoor hot tub as well. Additionally, it can help with other things like keeping your hot tub water warm, which can help you ensure that it's always warm and comfortable when you get in and can help with conserving energy as well, since you won't have to use as much energy to keep your hot tub at a warm temperature.

3. Skim it Regularly

Before you get into your hot tub, take a minute to skim it for any debris. It only takes a minute or two if you do it regularly, and it can help you ensure that you are stepping into a nice, clean hot tub. Plus, it can make cleaning it a whole lot easier later on.

As you can see, there are a few steps that you can follow if you would like to keep your hot tub clean. If you follow these tips, then you can help ensure that your hot tub is a nice, clean oasis each time that you get in it.
