Pool Blaster® Aqua Broom XL Ultra

We recommend cleaning your spa & hot tub every 8-12 weeks when in-use. Also, be mindful about what you take into the tub. Rinsing off in the shower only takes a few seconds before entering your Spa. Therefore, it avoids taking any lotions or bodily oils into the tub.

Likewise, it’s essential to maintain a regular cleaning schedule for the water and filters. And while doing this routine maintenance, do a quick clean of the tub. For example, the Aqua Broom XL Ultra portable, cordless pool cleaner easily spot-cleans hard-to-reach areas. Further, it’s ideal for spas & hot tubs and features up to 40-minutes of run-time for convenient cleaning maintenance.

In short, the Aqua Broom XL Ultra pool vacuum is convenient and affordable for Quick-Set and soft-sided pools. Further, it has the largest vacuum head in its class, which increases debris capture capacity. Furthermore, the enhanced motor provides more powerful suction to quickly remove debris, leaves, and sand. Most importantly, it comes with an all-purpose filter bag with a sectional pole; no hoses needed!

Spas & Hot Tubs – Easier To Keep Them Running Even In Chilly Months

Spas or Hot Tubs
Water Tech professional tips & tricks for winterizing your pool

While many choose to close their spas & hot tubs for the winter, keeping them running throughout the year is easier. In other words, running them during chilly months is more effortless than shutting them down for the season. Winter and fall are beautiful seasons to use a Spa with minimal maintenance. The hot water and massage breathe life back to frozen feet and aching joints. Instead of winterizing for the cold, why not make the most of your investment?  

So before the temperatures start to plunge and the snow starts to fall, take the opportunity to drain and thoroughly scrub the interior. Whether running 365 or choosing to shut down for winter (See Cold Weather Winterizing), prepare for the season ahead. Additionally, this is a good time of year for warmer climates to do bi-yearly maintenance. Issues that may arise from failing to do this may cause complications in freezing temperatures or interrupt your outdoor relaxation.

Checking the water level gives an excellent opportunity to clean the tub. The Water Tech Volt® FX-4Li  or Pool Blaster Aqua Broom XL Ultra are excellent choices. Above all, cordless, hoseless, and rechargeable spa & hot tub portable pool cleaners are convenient for daily maintenance and benefit the longevity of your filter. 

Maintaining Spa Water Levels

Most importantly,  keeping the water in your Spa warm and at the proper level saves energy and prevents damage. Consequently, avoiding freezing damage to the Spa as well as the plumbing. To prevent this, set the timer to run the heater every 20-30 minutes so warm water is constantly running through the pipes. Also, check the water temperature frequently. Too little water will also prevent the pump from circulating the warm water, risking ice damage.To sum up, regularly check the water level and keep a hose handy for a quick fix.
