A hot tub is a long-term investment in your health and overall wellness. And protecting that investment comes down to one thing: proper hot tub maintenance. One of the best ways to ensure your spa serves you well over the years is maintaining proper water chemistry. This is done by balancing the chemical properties of your hot tub water and keeping your sanitization system in good working order. Proper maintenance starts with having the right hot tub chemicals on hand, including bromine tablets, a pH balancer, a demineralizer, a spa shock and a water clarifier. A water softener and a defoamer can also be helpful.

It may sound complicated, but by following our step-by-step list, you will be an expert in hot tub maintenance in no time.
