Things To Remember

  • Temperature Loss Can Come From an Insecure Lid - With most, if not all, of the previously mentioned Spa's 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 place 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, or weekly depending on 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 a result in high power usage. Filters such as the Lay-Z-Spa Filter Cartridge or the CleverSpa® Water Filter Pack are great options.

  • 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.
