Retrofitting Your Spa

Retrofit your spa

Fall and early winter is a good time to consider retrofitting your spa. At Goodall Pools & Spas, we have suggestions for what you should emphasize as the most important changes and the best improvements you can make.

Purchase a New Cover

This is one of the easiest changes to make. Spa covers generally last about four to five years. A good cover can save you a lot of money on your electric bill. A lot of heat escapes when the cover does not fit well, or if the center fold of your spa cover is not insulated. A new cover can be a big energy saver.

When ordering a new cover, it helps if you know the exact make and model of your spa, and even the year the spa was manufactured. This will ensure you get one that properly fits. A new cover will be lighter to lift than the old one as well.

Add a New Cover Lifter

You can also add a hydraulic lifter, which will make it very easy to take your cover on and off the spa. While you are using the spa, the cover hangs off the side or the back, so it is out of the way and not laying on the ground. You do not have to find a place to put your cover while you are soaking in your spa.

Replace the Jets

Over time, your spa jets may break or wear down. This can interfere with your overall enjoyment when using your spa. A good time to replace the jets is when they quit working efficiently. 

The types of jets in your spa depend on the spa manufacturer. With Sundance Spas, a brand of spas Goodall Pools & Spas carries, there are a lot of different models with a variety of different jets. When purchasing replacement jets, it is important to know the make and model of your spa, as well as the year it was made, so you are getting the correct replacement jets.

Cosmetic Changes

This may also be a good time to make some types of cosmetic or comfort changes to your spa. For instance, you may want to replace the headrests. Maybe adding new steps will work for you. These can improve the look of your spa and even the feel.
