Now that the weather is getting colder, it’s time to close up that pool and open up the hot tub. You’ll want to keep a few important supplies on hand to keep your hot tub clean, safe, and enjoyable. Here are a few of the to hot tub supplies we recommend.
- Hot tub chemicals and balancing kit: This is probably the most important on the list of hot tub supplies you’ll need. Like a pool, you’ll need certain chemicals to keep the levels balanced and the water clean. Some of the chemicals you’ll need include chlorine or bromine, a pH increaser and decreaser, and an alkalinity increaser to kill germs, neutralize acidity, and prevent algae. You’ll also want a balancing kit, so you can know just how much chemical to put in.
- Hot tub cover: Also, among your hot tub supplies, you should include a hot tub cover. This can help keep out bugs and debris while also keeping in the water and the heat. Along with a cover, you will want to purchase a lifter as the cover will get heavier and heavier over time.
- Spa vacuum: Like how you need to use a pool skimmer to clean the pool before each use, you can use a spa vacuum to clean your hot tub before each use. That way you don’t have to soak with a bunch of unwelcome floaties while you’re trying to relax.
These are just a few of the important hot tub supplies you’ll want to have on hand during hot tubbing season. If you would like to learn more about the other supplies we sell, you can give us a call.
