Cal Spas Durable Spa Pump Will Provide Years of Trouble-free Use

main

Replace old and malfunctioning spa pumps with an original Cal Spas pump that will last longer than other pumps.

The pump is the heart of the spa. Spa pumps run frequently throughout the day to circulate hot water within your spa to help maintain temperature and filter the spa water. The spa pump is what circulates hot water through your spa and works in combination with a pump and a motor. Most spa pumps last for several years before requiring attention, however it is recommended to replace an entire spa pump when it begins to malfunction.

Our spa pumps last years longer than competitor brands. Each switchless pump has a 50% thicker and longer shaft than standard pumps for increased durability and output. Shop for the perfect spa pump for your hot tub that will not only deliver an intense hydromassage, but will keep your spa water circulating for a clean and warm water spa experience.

Cleaning / Replacing the Spa Filter

The spa filter is the part of your spa that removes the debris from the water and needs to be cleaned on a regular basis to maximize your spa’s filtering performance and heating efficiency.  When the spa operates without a filter, there is a possibility that debris may be sucked into the plumbing through the filter well.

CLEANING THE SPA FILTER

Spa Filters

We recommend you clean your filter about once a month,
depending on your spa usage and bather load.

In addition to spraying off the filter weekly to remove surface debris, your filter should be deep cleaned periodically to dissolve scale and particles that get lodged deep within the filter fibers and impede the filtration process. Even if the filter looks clean, scale and particles can clog the fibers and prevent water from flowing through the filter resulting in the most common spa problem—no heat, caused by a dirty filter.

 WARNING!  Be sure to shut off power to the spa before you remove the filter.

  1. Remove the filter by turning it counterclockwise, unscrewing the bottom threads, then pulling it up and out.
  2. Place the dirty filter into a bucket of water deep enough to cover the filter.
  3. Add 8 oz of liquid filter cleaner to the bucket of water.
  4. Soak the filter for a minimum of 24 hours.
  5. Spray the filter with a water hose. Spray each pleat carefully.
  6. Reinstall the filter. Do not overtighten.

Note: It is a good idea to keep a spare filter to use in the spa while the dirty filter is being deep cleaned. This way, you can rotate the filters and both will last longer.

REPLACING THE SPA FILTER

Replacing FiltersWe recommend you replace your filter about once a year, depending on your spa usage and bather load. Before you place a new filter in your spa, make sure you remove the plastic wrapper. Soak the filter a minimum of 24 hours before you insert it in the filter well.

To ensure you order the correct replacement filter, Cal Spas has developed an easy measuring guide for all filters. Follow the directions below to replace your existing filter with a diligent spa filter which will last months longer than competitors.

Never use a filter too small for your spa’s water capacity!

Hot Tub Maintenance

Hot tub maintenance can be made simple by cutting it down to a 3-step system:

  • Balancing
  • Sanitizing
  • Shocking

Balancing spa water means that the water is neither too alkaline (high pH) which causes destructive scale buildup on equipment, nor too acidic (low pH) which may erode plumbing and cause costly damage to spa pumps, seals and heaters. Balanced water has a more pleasant feel to the skin, and allows your sanitizer to work more effectively. Spa water can be tested by using test strips to check alkalinity on a weekly, or bi-weekly basis. Santa Barbara 22

Water sanitation is arguably the most important out of the 3-step system. Preventing additive chemicals can be made easy by implementing an ozone or salt water system to your hot tub. Not only will a sanitation system ensure that your spa water is always ready to be enjoyed, but it can also reduce the amount of chemicals used to balance or shock spa water. If you do not have a sanitation system, it’s not too late!

The most important thing to do in preparation for shocking the spa water is to first test the spa, and adjust the pH to the range of 7.2-7.6. Oxidizers work best in a low pH environment, and the efficacy of your spa shock is twice as great at a pH of 7.6, than it is at a pH of 8.0. When shocking the spa, be cautious when using spa shock, oxidizers can be dangerous when misused or mishandled. Different oxidizers have varying strengths – be careful not to overdose your spa shock treatment. High winds can blow spa shock right in your face. Gently pour it over the surface, and clean up any spills right away.

Another way to effectively maintain your hot tub clear of the elements is by implementing a diligent and form fitting spa cover. Find the perfect fitting spa cover for any hot tub brand at www.QuickSpaParts.com and limit the amount of hot tub maintenance you need to perform on your hot tub.calspasblogwinterbanner.jpg

Hot Tubs and Home Value

How Does a Hot Tub Affect Your Home Value?S-525L Sml Environment

There’s no single rule for calculating how much installing a hot tub will increase the value of a given home – if it does at all. Some hot tubs may, depending on various factors.

  • Is it a portable hot tub? So-called “portable” hot tubs are, as a rule, considered personal property and as such offer no added value to the house and land. And what is a portable hot tub? Any hot tub displayed on a showroom floor is a portable hot tub. It can be moved and relocated even if it is heavy and requires special equipment to deliver it to your home. Contrast portable hot tubs with permanent hot tubs: A permanent hot tub sits in the ground, much like an in-ground swimming pool. The plumbing is typically built-in as well. An in-ground hot tub may increase your home value, although generally not as much as you invested in the tub.
  • Is the hot tub built-in? Even a “portable” hot tub may add real value to your home if it’s built-in. If removing the tub will cause extra construction to close or cover the hole in the deck, patio, wall or such, then it is considered built-in and may increase the home appraisal. Even then, the exact amount may vary.
  • Where do you live? The climate you live in also influences the affect a hot tub may have on property value. In northern climates, for instance, outdoor swimming pools don’t always get much use. It’s simply too cold most of the year. A hot tub, on the other hand, is a pleasant retreat in the coldest of winters – even if it is outdoors.

Residents of hot, southern climates probably won’t appreciate a hot tub in the same way. In such markets swimming pools will likely raise your home value more than a hot tub.Z628T Environment

How to Increase the Value of Your Hot Tub

When it’s time to sell your home, of course you want it to look as nice as possible. Spruce up your hot tub to make it more appealing to potential homebuyers:

  • Replace old or damaged hot tub covers. Simply changing the cover can make a hot tub look more inviting.
  • Clean the tub thoroughly. Depending on the material, wash and shine the exterior. Wipe down the interior to remove algae, stains or other problems, and chemically treat the water or even change the water if necessary. Remove any debris in and on the hot tub before any home viewings.
  • Landscape around outdoor hot tubs. Present your spa area as a tempting retreat from the surrounding world. Build a fence to shelter it from neighbors, install mood lighting, plant greenery, make a brick or concrete path leading to the tub – anything that will help blend the tub into the home environment and increase appeal.

If you’re struggling with the thought of spending the money on a hot tub, ask yourself how long you plan to remain in your home. If you can’t foresee selling and moving for a number of years, the actual financial return may be secondary to your enjoyment in the meantime.

Free Shipping on Spa Covers

Quick Spa Parts is offering FREE SHIPPING on Spa Covers, 8′ or smaller. Now is the perfect time to get the perfect fit spa cover to keep your spa clean and save you time and money over time. The hot tub cover serves three major purposes:coverdiagram-popup1

Protecting Your Tub

When you are not enjoying your tub it is important to keep the cover on to help keep debris out of the water. Depending on the placement and weather in your area, sticks, pine cones, leaves and other debris can fall into your tub and cause damage to the shell or filtration system.

Energy Efficiency

A tight fitting cover creates a tight seal and locks in heat.  Heat retention means using less energy to heat the water.

Safety

With a properly fitted cover, securely installed you can rest easy that your children and/or pets are not getting in without you noticing.

A proper and diligent spa cover care routine can be the difference between needing to buy a replacement cover in 5 years instead of 6 years. If your spa cover needs replacing, now is the perfect time to find a new high-quality hot tub cover that will save you time and money over time.waterfall

New Year’s Resolutions

The beginning of the New Year is the beginning of a fresh start. It’s the time to improve yourself, make changes in your life and take control. This is why many of us see the beginning of a New Year as the perfect opportunity to make a resolution to kick those bad habits. Unfortunately, New Year Resolutions are much easier made than kept.08_FitnessBandsLg

How do you keep a New Year’s Resolutions?

1.) Set a realistic goal for yourself – Many of us will choose “losing weight” as our resolution for the New Year. Be specific, know what you would like to achieve. Setting goals for yourself will make your outcome more accessible.

2.) Only make one resolution – You only get one wish per cake, not candle. Don’t overwhelm yourself with resolutions. Set one primary goal you would like to achieve and stay focused.

3.) Don’t wait for New Year’s Eve – Setting a resolution is a commitment. Making a spontaneous choice will not achieve great success as something you take time to contemplate about.

4.) Baby steps – Slow and steady wins the race. Set milestones, this way you will be able to keep track of your progress as you achieve your goal.

5.) Learn from your mistakes – So you made the same resolution as last year, that’s okay! Do not make the same mistakes, instead let that be your lesson.

6.) It won’t happen overnight – Success takes time. Progress takes time. Don’t rush it!

7.) Don’t mind the small stuff – We all face small hurdles along the way, don’t let them bring you down. Dust yourself off and try again.

8.) Get support – Create a support system around yourself. Let friends and family about your goal and have them help you reach your goal. Teamwork!

9.) Motivation – Keep focus and motivated. Remind yourself about the goal and why you want to reach it.

10.) Always work on your goal – Once you have reached your goal, keep working to maintain it.
