You finally made your dream purchase and are the proud owner of a Dimension One Hot Tub. You now can enjoy some quiet and relaxation in your very own backyard and offer a place for your friends and family to socialize.
What happens now that the season is getting colder and you may not be using the hot tub as much?
Well, you will need to do some routine upkeep on your own regarding chemicals and filtration, but you can also take this downtime to get your hot tub ready for the next warm season.
Different types of hot tub services are available and recommended, but completion does not need to occur all at once. Giving your hot tub a run-through to pinpoint any shortcomings or pieces of equipment that could use some upkeep is a good starting point. After you have decided on your needs, there are different hot tub servicing options available.
Below are a few different ways to service your hot tub during the colder seasons:
Hot tub parts repairs:
If you are noticing any small part of your hot tub–be it the pump, air jets, filter, etc.–may not be working at its best, it is a smart idea to get these small working parts assessed by a professional. The evaluation is to avoid a more costly problem occurring over time–ruining more elements than the original problem piece. Your local Tenafly, NJ hot tub service and repair professionals of Island Pool and Spa are fully qualified to provide these assessments.
Each section will be thoroughly examined to find the cause of the issue. Most often, typical causes of damage include items getting caught inside the mechanisms or loose pieces of equipment. Most parts repairs are simple, straightforward, and inexpensive.
You will need to be proactive if you see any part of your hot tub is working to the best of its ability to avoid costlier problems down the road. Tenafly’s hot tub professionals at Island Pool and Spa will give you a full rundown of any outstanding issues. In addition to carrying a wide variety of hot tubs in their Tenafly NJ retail store, their team of experts has several years of experiencing servicing and repairing hot tubs.
The most important feature in your hot tub is the water. If it’s not crystal clear and ready to use, nothing else matters. That’s why clean, healthy water is the foundation for all of Dimension One’s advanced hydrotherapy designs. Enjoy the cleanest water in the industry that is also the easiest to maintain. Below is a list of water care products for you Dimension One Hot Tubs.
The Vision Cartridge offers D1® spa users a natural and effective way to reduce the use of chemically-based water sanitation systems. Used in combination with D1® ozone systems, the Vision Cartridge uses silver catalyst technology that kills 99.96% of impurities on contact. One Vision Cartridge lasts up to 6 months and can reduce the need for extra chemicals by 60% for cleaner, healthier and softer water.
Available as an optional addition to the spa filter on any Dimension One spa.
The hot tub ozone system is one of the most important advances in the portable spa industry. All three D1® systems have ozone generators, often called “ozonators” for short. They’re called that because they produce ozone gas; ozone is a form of oxygen.
Ozone is the natural result of a lightning strike. It produces that clean smell in the air after a thunderstorm. Ozone is also generated in the upper atmosphere by UV light, which protects us from harmful, excessive solar radiation.
The D1® ozone generator uses electricity and an ultraviolet, or UV, light bulb to produce ozone. The light bulb is housed within the Ozonator device, which is enclosed inside your spa’s cabinet. The ozonator converts O2, oxygen, to O3, ozone.
UltraPURE® is the best water management system available in a swim spa today. UltraPURE® is more than just an ozone generator; it’s a fully engineered, patented water management system similar to the systems used throughout European municipal waste facilities. It has a dedicated filtration and water management system, processing about 10,000 gallons per day. After filtering the water, this system vigorously mixes ozone and water three times to ensure ozone comes in contact with every drop of water – ozone doesn’t just kill bacteria, it burns it up! That means the water in your spa is not just clean, it’s crystal clear.
Improving upon the industry standard, D1® offers the patented UltraPure® water management system. UltraPure® is more than just an ozone generator; it’s a fully engineered water management system similar to the systems used throughout European municipal waste facilities. This hot tub filtration system mixes ozone and water three times to ensure ozone comes in contact with every drop of water to provide the purest water possible, 24 hours a day. That means the water is not just clean, it’s crystal clear. The best part is, UltraPure® silently purifies while you’re in the tub for an exceptionally quiet experience. US Patent: 5,665,228
As the pioneers of the use of ozone in hot tub water care, we know that not all ozone systems are created equal. Through the use of this natural, oxygen-based system, ClearZone® PRO significantly reduces the need for chemicals by fighting and oxidizing impurities 47% more efficiently than standard ozone systems.
Drain, clean, and fill:
Drain, clean, and fill is as simple as its name states. The cold season is an excellent time to get your hot tub drained, cleaned thoroughly, and refilled to ensure bacteria growth does not occur, all pieces are thoroughly cleaned out and working at the top quality, and that the entire hot tub getting a good scrub down.
Leaving the water in, although it is easier, can cause more problems, both health-wise and with the equipment. You will want to make sure your hot tub is periodically drained and given a good cleaning and assessment.
Leaks in hot tubs can be quite small–until someone sits in the hot tub the wrong way and a more massive crack occurs. The larger the crack in the hot tub, the costlier it is to fix, so therefore you want to make sure you are giving your hot tub a very detailed glance during the cold season to ensure it has no existing cracks. Cold weather will also cause cracks to grow, so ensuring the cracks are filled and sealed shut before the extreme cold arrives can avoid a costly fix down the line.
