Even the highest quality hot tubs will naturally require some maintenance over the years. Your owner's manual will be your first go-to resource should you encounter anything.

How often will I need to do maintenance on my hot tub?

Hot tubs come in a variety of building materials, water care systems and levels of quality. It used to require a lot of maintenance many years ago when most hot tubs were built using wood cabinets. The amount of maintenance on those were similar to what you'd need to do for a deck. Today, with synthetic materials, maintenance is minimal if any at all.

As for water care, it will depend on your exact system. Salt water hot tub systems tend to require less maintenance and chemicals while standard systems still are fairly easy to deal with. You'll end up spending as little as 5 minutes a week on pH balancing and checking the sanitizer and 15 minutes a month on rinsing out filters. Some filters can even be ran in a dishwasher. Often you can get away with draining and refilling your spa about once a year. With more traditional water care systems it might require this process a few more times per year.

Why is a salt water system so popular?

Salt Water systems like the FreshWater Salt System simplifies water care even more. Chlorine is automatically generated so you'll spend less time adding chemicals and will need to drain and refill your tub less often. It makes hot tub ownership easier than ever and produces more natural feeling water.

What are the requirements to install a hot tub?

It's actually a simple process to determine what you need to get a hot tub installed. You'll need a location that is accessible. If a pathway is too narrow there are options such as using a crane to get a hot tub in a backyard. You'll want a level, solid surface. Concrete and reinforced deck are popular surfaces but often people will install a hot tub on pavers, slabs made of wood or gravel and even more options. You'll also need to decide between a 100V or 220V model. And also you'll need to consider being able to drain and refill the hot tub. Our experts will help guide you through this process.

What else should I consider with spa placement?

You'll want to consider how close the spa is to your door. The more often you use it, the closer you'll want it to your house so that on colder nights it's much easier to get in and out of the house. Also, you'll want to consider the level of privacy you want. You could even use some hot tub cover options to create some extra privacy. Georgia Spa Co. will assist you with selecting the perfect spot for your hot tub.

Will I need to install the hot tub myself?

Generally, we'll perform the delivery and installation of the hot tub to make things much easier. Also, we'll ensure that you'll have everything up and running smoothly. There are plug-n-play models which makes installation a breeze. We'll go over your options when you are purchasing a hot tub.
