Let’s start with the hardest, ugliest part: Fall Spa Maintenance.

Each season should remind you to prep your spa with some clean water, soak your filter, protect the spa cover, and care for your cabinet!

  • Fresh water is essential to maintaining a healthy spa.
  • Soaking or replacing your filter is recommended at this time. Deep clean all the filter gunk that your bi-weekly spray wasn’t able to reach.
  • Your hot tub cover is important part to your spa to hold the heat and protect unwanted visitors from getting into the tub. Apply some protection to make it last through the harsh wind and rain coming soon.
  • Your spa cabinet is the largest part of what you see outside the tub, give it a little TLC. Wood cabinets may be refinished and synthetic wood panels should be cleaned and protected like the spa cover.
