What’s Involved in Regular Swim Spa Maintenance?

Once you’ve invested in a swim spa, it’s important to stay on top of regular swim spa maintenance. This will ensure that your swim spa will last for many years to come! But what exactly is involved in swim spa maintenance? Here’s a quick overview of what kind of maintenance you may need to do regularly as a swim spa owner. And always consult your sales expert for instructions once you purchase your swim spa.

Balancing Water Care in Your Swim Spa

To keep your swim spa water crystal clear and ready to enjoy, you must regularly test and balance your spa water chemistry. Unbalanced swim spa water results in cloudy or foamy spa water and makes your filtering system work harder. It can also cause scaling on your swim spa shell. All in all, it creates water that’s just not fun to swim in and not good for your investment.

Balancing swim spa water isn’t as hard as it sounds, and it only takes a few minutes.

  • The first step is to test your swim spa water. This will tell you exactly what chemicals you actually need to use.
  • The next step is to measure and add the spa chemicals needed to the water and filter through. Carefully read all instructions on the chemical container!
  • Still in doubt? Ask a professional! Swim spa service professionals are more than happy to walk you through the process. 
  • Sign up for Autoship! We offer an exclusive Autoship program that delivers all of the swim spa chemicals and other water care products you need when you need them right to your doorstep.

Draining and Filling

Like a hot tub, you should drain and refill your swim spa with fresh water according to the time frame indicated by your sales expert. Even if you stay up to date on regular swim spa maintenance, adding fresh water to your swim spa will keep the pipes and equipment clear and won’t overwork your filter.

After you buy a swim spa from IHT Hot Tubs & Fireplaces, we will send you reminders to drain and fill your swim spa. We also offer the option for you to sign up for regular swim spa maintenance service, whether weekly, monthly, or seasonally. This routine service includes drain and fills! Our swim spa valet service is customized to your exact swim spa and your regular usage.

Covering Your Swim Spa

When not in use, it’s best to keep your swim spa covered with a well-insulated cover. This will keep debris like leaves and dirt out while also preventing all of your spa chemicals from evaporating. Especially living in Colorado, it’s important to protect your swim spa from outdoor elements like heavy rain and snow.

If your swim spa cover has seen better days, it’s either time for a replacement or an upgrade. We offer both high-quality replacement covers and upgrade covers like the End 2 End swim spa cover and the Covana Legend cover and automated gazebo.

If you have any more questions about what’s involved in regular swim spa maintenance, reach out to our service team at 303-296-7727 or email service@ihtspas.com. We’ll be more than happy to provide you with assistance for your swim spa.
