Spa Maintenance Santa Maria
While you may feel the pinch of having to pay a professional spa cleaner, the longevity of your spa will thank you for the expert care and maintenance. Plus you won’t have to buy all those expensive tools and chemicals yourself.
Spa chemistry can be very confusing for anyone not familiar with even the basics. Having a professional keep your spa chemicals balanced will help keep your spa safe, clean and working properly. It is not only pools that are susceptible to grime and gunk. Spas must also be kept clean or they will be rife with algae, stray particles, dirt, animal droppings, drowned insects and so on. Though it is much more common for algae to thrive in a pool than a spa, it is still very possible for algae to grow in these comparably small and hot spaces. Similar to most other plants, algae requires sun to grow. If your pool or spa is not provided with sunlight, it will prove difficult for algae to expand yet there is still the chance for other forms of dirt and debris to build up.
Algae grows in spas for a litany of reasons. For one, improper filtration can lead to a rapid buildup of algae and other nasty particles that compromise your spa. Leaving a spa uncovered also has the potential to backfire in a big way as it invites algae and other gross particles right on in.
The lack of sanitizer and even transmitting algae to the water by way of swim trunks are also common reasons for the growth of algae in spas. Thankfully, algae and other gross particles can be cleaned from spas as well as hot tubs. The spa should be drained and refilled so any algae present is sent on its way. Shock can also be used to sanitize the space though this approach can alter the chemical levels in the spa. Algaecide is another commonly used solution.
