February 2020 Part 3
Place your Hot Tub upon a pedestal.
Treat it Right.
I pointed out in part two that your hot-tub is an appliance.
It may be the most expensive appliance you’ve ever purchased.
It needs a clean dry place to live.
No appliance can survive sitting in a puddle all the time.
Also called a portable spa, it will be portable only once if you let the environment take over.
The elements are the enemy.
When not in use the area around your tub should be dry and clean.
With enough room all the way around to clean and inspect for pests and leaks.
With no organic matter hanging over or touching your hot-tub.
Tiny bugs break tiny things in your hot-tub.
That causes big problems.
Much like your new convertible automobile will do best parked in the garage.
Direct sunlight or under a tree all the time just won’t work out well.
Exposure to the elements will cause a more rapid deterioration of your tub’s housing and cover.
Plan to deal with it later or plan to address it up front.
I’ve found outdoor use Hot-Tubs that are placed on dry patios with an awning survive best.
Shielded from falling debris and UV exposure, no organic material collecting around the base, close enough to the house to be included in routine pest control.
Routinely satisfy your hot tub’s needs and you will be rewarded. ♥
This is the third part of our month long series on hot tub care.
