How to Care for Your New Spa
First of all, congratulations on considering one of the best-built, highest-quality spas and swim spas in the country. Medallion Pools is the leader in engineering spas and swim spas that not only look good and perform well, but will last you and your family through many happy years of use.
Although our spas are build to last, there are a few things you need to keep in mind relative to maintenance to ensure you get the level of luxury you expect—and deserve.
Filters Your Spa’s Best Friend
Without a doubt, your spa’s filter is one of the most important pieces of equipment—and one of the easiest to maintain. A dirty filter won’t do what it needs to do—trap contaminants—and will put a strain on your spa’s pump. The best approach is to clean your filters with every water change and replace them annually as well. When cleaning your filter, have a dry spare standing by to replace it with. That way you can enjoy your spa right away and prolong the life of each filter as it has time to dry between cleanings.
Keep it Clean
A periodic shock treatment is necessary to ensure that lingering dead organic material left behind from your sanitizer system, as well as non-filterable material such as dirt, soap films, hair spray and perspiration, are treated on a regular basis. Left unchecked, these contaminants would become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
Other important factors to consider are the balancing of alkalinity and PH levels, as well as maintaining sufficient calcium hardness and keeping shell staining and scale formation in check. All these steps might sound overwhelming at first, but in the end, a little practice makes for a much safer, cleaner and happier spa experience.
