Things You Need To Know About Spa Maintenance

How Often Do I Need To Clean And Change My Spa Filter?

Keeping your spa clean and well-maintained is important for both hygiene and safety reasons. One of the most important components of a spa is the filter, which helps to keep the water clean and free of debris. Depending on the type of filter you have, as well as the size and usage of your spa, you will need to clean your filter on a weekly basis. But, it’s definitely a good idea to replace your filter altogether once a year.

If you notice that your spa water is starting to look dirty or cloudy, this is a sign that it's time to clean or replace your filter. In general, it's best to err on the side of caution and perform maintenance more often rather than less. By following these simple tips, you can help ensure that your spa stays in top condition all year round.

While there are universal filters available for spas in general, we recommend exercising caution with regard to non-brand filters based on the potential size and quality difference compared to our filter options.

What Do You Need To Know About Spa Chemicals And Kits?

Most people are familiar with the basics of hot tub maintenance: you need to keep the water clean and free of debris, and you need to add chemicals to keep the pH and alkalinty balanced. However, there is a lot more to it than that. For example, did you know that there are different types of spa chemicals? Chlorine is the most common type of sanitiser and ozone generators are also popular options.

When it comes to purchasing spa chemicals, you can either buy them individually or in a kit. Spa chemical kits usually include all of the basic chemicals you need to get started, which can be a good option for beginners. However, if you have specific needs or preferences, you may want to purchase individual chemicals.

Whichever route you choose, be sure to do your research and select products that are designed for use in hot tubs. Using the wrong type of chemicals can damage your hot tub and void your warranty. With a little knowledge and care, you can keep your hot tub looking and feeling great for years to come.

We recommend at least testing the PH levels in the water once a week. This is pretty simple to do and Aqua Pulse has PH testing kits available to help with this process.

What Are The Benefits Of A Spa Hard Cover?

A spa hard cover is a solid, durable cover that is placed over the top of a spa or hot tub. Hard covers are typically made from materials such as acrylic or polycarbonate, and they offer a number of advantages over traditional soft covers.
For one, hard covers are much more durable and long-lasting than soft covers. They can withstand heavy winds and snowfall, and they will not fray or tear over time. In addition, hard covers provide a better level of insulation than soft covers, which means that they can help to keep your spa or hot tub warm even in colder weather.

Finally, hard covers are much easier to clean and maintain than soft covers. With a hard cover in place, you can simply wipe down the surface with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris. All of these factors make hard covers an ideal choice for those who want to protect their investment in a spa or hot tub.

We have a range of hard spa covers available in a variety of sizes so you’re sure to find one that fits your Aqua Pulse spa!

What Are The Benefits Of Headrests In My Spa?

Headrests are often one of the first things people notice when they enter a spa. While they may seem like a simple aesthetic choice, headrests actually serve an important role in the overall experience of a spa treatment. Headrests provide support for the head and neck, preventing strain and making it easier to relax.

In addition, they can be used to adjust the position of the body during a massage, ensuring that the jets can reach all the necessary muscle groups. Headrests also help to keep hair and cosmetics from getting wet or smeared during facial treatments. As a result, headrests play a vital role in providing a comfortable and luxurious spa experience.
