With the time and financial investment put into purchasing and preparing a home spa for use, it’s important spa owners enjoy their purchase for as long as possible. When it comes to the longevity of a spa, quality and care are two main factors.
Spas made with high-quality materials can withstand more wear and tear, resulting in a longer lifespan. Spas made with cheaper materials are more likely to need components replaced in a shorter time frame and not last as long. At Canadian Home Leisure, we are proud to provide top-quality home spas, so our customers can enjoy their investment for years to come!
When considering purchasing a hot tub, it’s important to recognize that maintenance will be a part of the process. Performing maintenance at regular intervals helps avert residue build-up that causes various components of your hot tub to wear-down faster. One example of routine maintenance is draining of your spa. This should be done three to four times a year.
Having the appropriate accessories and equipment is also crucial for optimal spa health. For instance, a spa cover not only prevents debris from entering your hot tub but it helps keep in the heat. In colder temperatures, this prevents your spa heater from having to work twice as hard to keep your spa hot. Without the cover, the heater could easily burn out and need to be replaced.
Another important aspect of hot tub care is changing the filters. This not only helps keep your water clear and bacteria-free, but it stops your filtration system from becoming clogged with contaminants, which forces your pump to work harder.
If you combine a well-built home spa with proper maintenance, you can easily enjoy your spa for 15 to 20 years.
