Here’s a know-how on when to replace the essential parts of your spa:
• The insulating cover or spa covers is one of the most important parts of the spa. It helps in reducing evaporation and provides insulation which further helps in saving water and money on electricity bills. It also acts a protective barrier especially for houses with children running around the place. It should be replaced regularly from time to time. Usually, it lasts for 5 to 7 years as it starts soaking water with age and becomes heavy. Lifting the cover off is difficult and so it should be set aside. Therefore, good quality barriers make a good investment.
• Spa filters are of three types – Sand filters, diatomaceous earth filters and cartridge filters should also be replaced from time to time. Cartridge filters use cartridges for filtering, sand filters use sand and diatomaceous earth filters use diatomaceous earth for the same. As responsible owners of spa, backwashing is needed for cleaning sand filters and DE filters. Cartridges should be removed for cartridge filter cleaning.
• Filters are replaced when the color of the filter changes to green, gray or brown. Even after regular cleaning, if the filter shows beige color, it should be changed. Also when it has developed leaks, cracks on top or bottom or the actual element is damaged.
Thus spa equipment and parts should always be of high quality and from reputed brands so that there is not much maintenance cost.
