All of the pleasure and benefits that your swim spa is going to bring you will far out weigh any of the maintenance and upkeep that you will need to do. One thing is for sure and that is you want to be able to enjoy the pristine and crystal clear water that your swim spa should possess at any time you wish. There are a few things that you will need to do to make sure this is the case.
In the warmer weather, you want to check the pool chemistry a few times a week. In the cooler months you can probably reduce this to once a week.
On a weekly basis it is important that you clean out the skimmer baskets. If the swim spa is used a great deal, you may even need to do this more often.
You should do a weekly inspection to ensure the filters are clean. They can become laden with hair and lint, and need to be cleaned as necessary. Even if your swim spa is not used constantly or by a lot of people, a storm can cause debris to land in the spa and clog up your filters.
You will be able to see when your water level is dropping and, if so, you need to top it up. When you do, be sure to check the chemistry of the water.
Make sure you have the proper chemicals on hand, so you can use them as needed. The water can turn quickly, so when chemicals are low, you don't want to be waiting a few days to top them up.
Your swim spa should have come with a complete set of instructions that include the care and maintenance required. If you follow these, you should have no difficulty keeping your spa in perfect condition.
If maintenance is not something that you feel comfortable doing yourself, you can discuss having this service done by your swim spa dealer. There will most likely be a maintenance program available to meet your specific needs.
Always do a daily visual check to make sure your swim spa is fully optimized for use. If you see any debris in the water, immediately remove them. If the water looks cloudy or murky, check the chemicals.
Swim spas are actually much easier to keep in good condition when compared to pools because they are far more compact. They are the perfect alternative to a pool for people who don't have a lot of space. They are also great for all age groups as they are perfect for relaxing in, enjoying some great water fun, or for exercise.
