Hot tubs are a great way to relax and unwind after a long day at work or to just enjoy a lazy day. However, it is important to keep them clean in order to avoid any health risks. In Cumbria, Drainage Cumbria is one of the leading drain cleaning companies that offers hot tub cleaning services. After draining the water from the hot tub, it is important to clean it thoroughly to avoid any unwanted bacteria or dirt buildup. In this article, we will guide you through the process of cleaning your hot tub after draining.
The first step is to rinse the hot tub with water to remove any debris or dirt that may have accumulated during use. You can use a hose to rinse the tub thoroughly. Make sure to remove any large debris such as leaves or twigs before starting the cleaning process.
After rinsing the hot tub, it is time to clean it properly. Drainage Cumbria recommends using a non-abrasive cleaner and a soft-bristled brush to scrub the interior walls and floor of the hot tub. Make sure to pay special attention to the areas that are hard to reach such as the corners and the edges. The cleaner will help dissolve any dirt, oil or grime that may have accumulated in the hot tub.
After cleaning the hot tub, rinse the tub thoroughly with water to remove any remaining cleaner. Make sure to use a clean sponge and rinse the areas you cleaned in order to avoid any residue buildup. Drainage Cumbria recommends using clean water from a hose to rinse the hot tub completely.
Chlorine is an important chemical that helps sanitize and disinfect the water in your hot tub. Drainage Cumbria recommends adding the appropriate amount of chlorine to the water according to the size of your hot tub. You can use test strips to determine the correct amount of chlorine to add to the water. It is important to avoid adding too much chlorine as it can be harmful to your skin and eyes.
After adding chlorine to the water, let the hot tub run for a few hours to allow the chlorine to circulate and sanitize the water. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions on how long to let the hot tub run for optimal performance.
After letting the hot tub run for a few hours, it is important to test the water using the test strips to ensure the correct chlorine level. Drainage Cumbria recommends testing the water daily to ensure the correct chemical balance. The test strips are easy to use and are available at most pool and spa stores.
It is recommended that you drain and refill your hot tub once every three to four months to maintain proper sanitation and avoid any bacteria buildup.
