A typical range of water change is about two to four months. There are several things you can do to maximize the amount of time between water changes.

  7. How to Choose the Right Hot Tub Cover

    Hot tub covers keep the heat in your spa when it's not in use. There are several choices in features when replacing your hot tub cover. The easiest option may be to decide if you're happy with your present model and just replace it. While that's the easiest, it might not be the best option. Here are 5 things to consider when looking at new hot tub covers. Foam Thickness and Density How well a hot tub cover works often revolves around the materials in it.

It makes the water clear. It also eliminates the ring of film that develops on your basin at the waterline.
