Hot Tub Covers
Maintaining a hot tub cover is easy and will make it last longer! Clean your cover regularly with cover cleaner to protect it from the elements and keep it looking brand new. On hot days, unzip the cover to allow the inside foam inserts to dry out. This will keep your cover light. Every few months, use a small amount (10%) of bleach added to 90% water and wipe the bottom of your hot tub cover off. This simple procedure will prevent your hot tub cover from smelling musty.
Every few months, check for tears or any deterioration to your cover. Duct tape can seal any split seams or spots that might allow water in to the foam. If the damage is too extensive, it’s time to order a new cover from Pool Supplies Canada!
Wooden Cabinets - your wooden hot tub cabinet should be re-stained every 6 months or so. Staining provides an extra layer of protection from the weather and helps to prevent warping or discolouration.
Synthetic Cabinets - synthetic cabinets are almost maintenance-free, but you should still spray and wipe down using a mild soap and water every month.
Acrylic Shells - normal household cleaners can damage acrylic hot tub shells. Use a soft cloth or sponge to remove scum or build up at the water line. Baking soda and vinegar can also be used to remove minor stains. Always rinse any spots you clean with fresh water.
Between water changes, use a hot tub shell cleaner to keep your acrylic polished. ALWAYS wipe up any spills immediately using fresh water.
