Maintain the whirlpool properly
As the water in the whirlpool remains in the pool after use, there is a lot to consider when maintaining it. The correct pH value is particularly important - too high or too low a value for rashes and itching on the skin. The ideal pH value is between 7.0 and 7.6. The value can be corrected using pH reducers and pH increasers.
If the pH value is correct, it is time for disinfection. This is absolutely essential because warm water is a breeding ground for bacteria, algae and germs of all kinds. There are various methods to choose from. You have to decide whether you want a chlorine-free product or the tried and tested chlorine. Alternative cleaning agents, for example, have active oxygen or bromine as active ingredients.
How often to change the filter?
Filtration is also an important part of water treatment in a whirlpool. The filter reliably removes dirt particles, hair, dandruff or insects. Filtration is simple for you, it works automatically. All you have to do is clean or replace the filter from time to time. You should clean the filter every two to four weeks.
You should ask the manufacturer about changing the filter, because there are different types of filters. Microfilters made of a spongy polyester, for example, should be replaced every three months. The somewhat larger-meshed fleece filters can be used for about one year if properly maintained.
How often should the water be changed?
A complete water change is necessary for a spa every three to six months. If you use the whirlpool on a daily basis, you will of course need to change the water sooner than someone who only occasionally jumps into the bubbling water. If there are several other users, a monthly water change may be necessary. However, constant filtration and disinfection is a prerequisite - without this, the water will turn very quickly. Then the water must definitely be replaced.
Bath additives in the whirlpool
Normal bath oils, bath salts, bubble baths or other bath additives should not be used in a whirlpool. In any case, the additive should not foam and certainly should not stain. However, there are special bath additives for whirlpools. Pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions when purchasing.
