The cooler months make you want to enjoy the warmth of a hot tub as often as possible, right? As you work to keep your spa in tip-top shape for spontaneous soaking, you might start to consider the pros and cons of professional spa maintenance vs. DIY spa maintenance. While you might be happy to care for your spa on your own, being able to just enjoy your spa can also be appealing.
Goodall Pools & Spas is here to help you look at the differences between maintaining your own hot tub vs. hiring professional technicians to care for your hot tub. Our company has been helping Pennsylvanians with their hot tubs since the mid-90s. Here is the information you need to help you decide which method is best for you.
Method 1 – Professional Spa Maintenance
First, let’s talk about the advantages of letting the Prestige Spa Maintenance crew at Goodall Pools do your spa upkeep for you. Our technicians are well trained in the most innovative ways to tend to your hot tub. You can rest assured that your spa is in good hands with our staff’s experience at your disposal.
Letting the professionals handle your spa maintenance means you will no longer have to concern yourself with remembering to periodically clean your hot tub. All you have to do is to decide how often you want our team to come by for a spa upkeep visit.
We even offer quarterly draining and deep cleaning in our maintenance packages. The crew that regularly visits your house will take care of thoroughly wiping the cover and spa surfaces. We will also be sure to rinse and clean the spa’s filters.
Another part of spa maintenance that can sometimes be a little finicky is the frequent water tests to balance the chemistry levels. Our staff are trained to do this efficiently and easily. You can simply enter the spa with confidence, knowing that the water is balanced and safe.
One more perk of professional maintenance is that our technicians carefully examine the components of your spa on each visit. They check to make sure that everything is doing its job as it should. Their well-trained eyes can detect something that might turn into an issue later on.
Method 2 – DIY Spa Maintenance
Some spa owners love the challenge of seeing to their own spa maintenance. If DIY is your thing, you will need to first make sure that you have the SpaGuard® chemicals that balanced, healthy spa water requires. Frequent water tests are a necessity, even more so when you are regularly using the hot tub.
You will also need to drain the hot tub at least once every three months or so. Then thoroughly clean all of the surfaces and components before refilling it with water. Check the filter often to ensure that it is not clogged or in need of cleaning. And keep an eye on your cover as well to make sure that it stays clean and free of water buildup.
Now you know the ins and outs of professional spa maintenance vs. DIY spa maintenance. Goodall Pools is here to help, no matter which method you choose. We have five retail locations around Pennsylvania — Camp Hill, Carlisle, Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Lebanon. When you need spa chemicals or accessories, stop by and see us.
