Things to Consider Before Buying

Do I Have Enough Space At Home? - Making sure you've got plenty of space to accommodate a Spa is paramount. Measuring out your chosen area and cross-checking it with the dimensions of your chosen Spa will no doubt reduce the risk of disappointment when it comes to assembly. Remember - You'll need to ensure there is plenty of space too for easy access as you don't want to feel boxed in.

What's My Budget? - Here at The Range our Spas vary in price depending on their features and their size. If you know exactly what you want and how you want to use your Spa, this will no doubt help make budgeting easier.

When it comes to accessorising your Outdoor Spa, there are plenty of options out there to help you add your personalised touch.

Things To Remember

Temperature Loss Can Come From an Insecure Lid - With most, if not all, of the previously mentioned spas coming complete with a durable lid, it's important to remember to make use of it! The most common reason for temperature loss can come from an ill-fitting, un-inflated, or damaged lid. As the heat rises, rips or gaps are the perfect places for heat to escape from so make sure your lid is fastened securely, airtight, or not damaged before each and every use.

Remember To Clean The Filters - You should always rinse your filters after each use, or weekly depending on the frequency, use of your Spa. Doing so will help make your pump more efficient and can, in turn, prevent the build-up of debris and the risk of increased energy bills sure to result in high power usage.

Managing Your PH Levels - Ensuring your Spa is at the correct pH level before treating the water can help save you money when it comes to buying chlorine and other desirable chemicals. The optimum pH level is between 7.2 and 7.6 to ensure that any added chlorine can disinfect effectively. Desirables such as the ClearWater Dip Test Strips, ClearWater Multifunction Tablets 1kg, or the ClearWater Ph Increaser 1kg are perfect for Spa owners.
