Today, the terms hot tub and spa are used interchangeably. Both describe a large tub that is used for relaxation, hydrotherapy, warmth, and entertaining. Both are equipped with built-in jets for targeting bathers’ sore muscles.
Basically, there are two types of hot tubs and spas: portable and custom-built or in-ground. Portable models can accommodate anywhere from two to eight or more adults. They can be inflatable latex or vinyl, which are usually less expensive; fiberglass, acrylic; polyethylene; or another type of plastic.
Geo-Teck offer products to help you maintain and enhance your hot tub or spa, no matter what your style or type. We help make it so all you have to do is get on in!
Hot tub chemicals and filters
At Geo-Teck, we know there is nothing better than having a hot tub to slip into, lay back and relax.
We also know the other side to owning a hot tub, the maintenance. A hot tub can give you hours of relaxation and fun, but it can give you hours of headaches if your chemistry isn’t correct, or your filters aren’t performing like it should. There’s nothing worse than green water, or that film on your skin in the hot tub! Here are some signs that there may be something wrong with your hot tub:
• Scale and stain formation
• Cloudy or coloured water
• Corrosion of hot tub surfaces and equipment
• Algae formation on hot tub surfaces
That’s why in addition to our heating and cooling services, Geo-Teck provide hot tub chemicals and hot tub filter products.
To keep your pool’s water sparkling clean, two basic maintenance steps are required:
Step 1: Hot Tub Filters
The first step of hot tub and spa maintenance is a properly functioning pool filtration system to keep out unwanted debris and sediment. The pump is also important as it moves water from the hot tub and through the filtration system. (To get the right pump for your hot tub, talk to us). Filter maintenance keeps your hot tub water sparkling and clean, free of impurities and too many chemicals.
Step 2: Hot Tub Chemicals
The second step is disinfection with hot tub chemicals, which are critical in protecting against the previously mentioned issues in your hot tub. The best route is a proper routine maintenance and monitoring schedule which includes an optimum level of chemical treatment.
