Understanding the Different Types of Spas
As you can imagine, there are several diverse types of spas or hot tubs, Jacuzzis, and whirlpools out there. These smaller, more frequently heated, and covered bodies of water fit into one of the categories found below.
Above Ground Spas
Above-ground spas, typically designed to accommodate 4–6-people, are durable and long-lasting, often constructed of either fiberglass or plastic. This type of spa has self-containing equipment and is almost always covered to retain its warm temperature.
In-Ground Standalone Spas
In-ground standalone spas, on the other hand, are typically larger than their above-ground alternative. In terms of composition, in-ground standalone spas can be constructed of pebbles, plaster, fiberglass, or a mixture of pebbles and plaster.
Pool + Spa Combos
This third type of spa does not require special treatment as it shares the pool’s water and, therefore, its chemistry and filtration.
Tackling the Challenges of Spa Maintenance
Maintaining a spa can be more challenging than pool cleaning due to its smaller size and higher water temperature. Sadly, the warm water in spas creates an ideal environment for bacteria and algae to grow, accelerating changes in chemistry levels and requiring more frequent treatments and cleaning. Spa maintenance is more delicate and complex, demanding a more comprehensive understanding of water chemistry and demanding more careful monitoring and adjustments.
The smaller size of a spa also means that any imbalances In the water chemistry can quickly affect the water quality and comfort of the users. Of course, this can be bad news when your spa is used regularly. Additionally, spas are covered, which, while helpful for limiting evaporation, can compromise your spa’s oxidation. As a result, the chlorine tries to oxidize bacteria but becomes trapped instead, causing a strong chlorine smell that results from chloramines.
Finally, there’s no way to use a large vacuum for removing dirt, dust, and debris, meaning one must use a small, battery-powered vacuum or spa wand instead. Luckily, those needing of a reliable hot tub maintenance service can depend on the experts at GL Pools all season long.
