Because Cedar's rich oils give it a natural resilience to decay, cleaning them is just as easy as it is for plastic tubs.
Here's a guide on how to maintain and clean a Cedar Wood Hot Tub to keep it in top condition and protect your investment:
Drain and refill the water
The first step in maintaining a Cedar Wood Hot Tub is to drain and refill the water. As mentioned earlier, it's recommended to change the water in your hot tub every three to four months. Draining and refilling the water removes any impurities and ensures that the water is clean and safe.
Clean the interior
Once the water is drained, it's time to clean the interior of the hot tub. Use a soft-bristled brush or a sponge and a mild cleaner to clean the surface of the hot tub. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can damage the wood.
Clean the filter
The filter in your Cedar Wood Hot Tub helps remove impurities from the water, so it's essential to keep it clean. Remove the filter and rinse it with a garden hose. If the filter is particularly dirty, soak it in a filter cleaner solution.
Test and adjust the water chemistry
Testing and adjusting the water chemistry in your Cedar Wood Hot Tub is critical for maintaining clean and clear water. Use a water testing kit to test the pH, alkalinity, and chlorine or bromine levels. Adjust the chemicals as needed to achieve the proper balance.
Shock the water
Even if you are are using our Ioniser and Oxidiser cleaning systems it might be necessary to occasionally shock the water. This is necessary in to kill bacteria and other contaminants that can cause skin irritation and cloudy water. This is also dependant on the bather load and whether participants are showering beforehand.
Clean the cover
The cover of your Cedar Wood Hot Tub helps keep debris and contaminants out of the water. Clean the cover regularly using a mild soap and water, and ensure that it's dry before putting it back on the hot tub.
Monitor the water level
It's essential to monitor the water level in your Cedar Wood Hot Tub regularly. If the water level is too low, it can damage the pump and heater. If it's too high, it can cause the water to overflow. Keep the water level within the recommended range.
By following these maintenance and cleaning tips, you can ensure that your Cedar Wood Hot Tub stays in top condition, providing you with a relaxing and enjoyable soaking experience for years to come.
