Hot Tub Sanitation: Salt or Ozone

Salt Chlorine and Ozone Generators are very popular options when it comes to sanitizing spa water. They reduce the need for harsh chemicals such as chlorine and increase water safety, leaving your spa water clean and crystal clear.Backyard Paver Patio with Garden Accessories

So, what is the difference between both hot tub sanitation systems? According to LoveYourHotTub.comall chlorine is made from salt. Salt Generators split salt and make the purest form of chlorine. While ozonators require no consumables. Ozone Generators simply take air, convert it to ozone, which reverts back to oxygen

Though a normal filtration system and regular maintenance of the spa water is sufficient enough, implementing a salt system or ozonator to your spa will benefit you in the long run. However, it must be noted that both systems require some sort of maintenance:

  • Salt Systems have cells that may get calcium build-up and require to be cleaned up and replaced over time. The salt cells can be pretty expensive to replace, do some homework to find out how much it would cost to replace before installing one onto your hot tub.
  • Ozone generators use ozone lamps that also need to be replaced over time. Replacements depends how often you use your hot tub.Santa Barbara 22

Salt Systems, even though they require expensive replacement parts, can function without much maintenance. Ozonators, unfortunately, cannot function on their own and require chlorine or additional chemicals to function properly.

The best way to choose the right sanitation system is to weight out how much time and money your willing to provide you hot tub. Which ever sanitation system you choose, a Cal Spas hot tub will provide years of enjoyment and around-the-clock filtration to make sure your hot tub is always ready to go when you are. Cascade Waterfall2

Anti-aging Machine

Besides being a source for relaxation and leisure, hot tubs provide health benefits that optimize health in the long run and help reduce joint and muscle pain. Hot tubs are really an anti-aging machine, reducing stress (the silent killer) will allow you to live a fruitful life. Combining a healthy lifestyle, with a balanced diet and soaks in a hot tub several times a week can assure healthy aging.11419217_461119850721611_527718327_n

September is Healthy Aging Month, encouraging adults over the age of 50 to think positively about moving forward and taking up activities that will help them age in a healthy way. It’s never too late to improve one’s physical, mental and social well-being through new ways of exercise and relaxation. A hot tub will benefit adults over the age of 50 by providing the following specific benefits from hot tubbing:

Improved sleep – It is recommended that the average healthy adult get about 8 hours of sleep every night. Deep-sleep is needed for your body to repair itself from a busy day. The warm massaging jets can help relax your body before a goodnight’s sleep.

Improved Circulation – While in a hot tub, your blood vessels will widen and blood circulation will improve promoting the delivery of nutrients throughout your body. The increased circulation, referred to as vasodilation, leaves skin looking new and refreshed, and will appear younger.

Reduce stress – Soaking in a hot tub 3-4 times a week is an efficient way to reduce stress which we all know can be detramental to your health. The intense hydrotherapy a hot tub provides will 1.) massage muscles, soothing away aches 2.) warm water will increase circulation and increase flexibility in your joints 3.) buoyancy helps the mind relax.Z735L_Pacifica_Environ

Lifespan of a Spa Cover

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. Here are some tips to increase the lifespan of a spa cover:Z735L_Pacifica_Environ

  • Keep the cover clean. The vinyl needs to stay clean and conditioned. Use a very mild detergent and water solution to clean the vinyl portion of the cover at least twice per month to keep your spa looking great and help expand the life of your spa cover.
  • Wipe chemical residue from the underside of the cover every chance you get. These residues, if left on the cover, start to break down the material causing it to become porous.
  • Maintain proper spa water chemistry. The better your spa water chemistry is maintained the vapors coming off the tub will be less corrosive. Making the vapors less corrosive leads to the protective layers of the cover to degrade more slowly, and increasing the lifespan of your spa cover.
  • Unzip the cover and clean just inside the zipper at least twice per year. Mildew has a tendancy to build up here and if you have not kept your sanitizer levels up you may develop this as a problem.
  • Remove the cover for 20-30 minutes after shocking your spa water. As the shock is burning out the Chloromines and Bromimines in your spa, highly corrosive vapors are released. Following this tip will protect your covers materials from premature degradation.
  • Completely remove the cover at least once per week to allow the water to drain out of it. Always completely remove the cover while using your hot tub.coverdiagram-popup1

Cover life expectancy depends on a lot of factors including amount of direct sun the cover receives, is it cared for correctly or abused, how the spa chemical regimen is followed, and varying weather patterns.Cover-Girl-1024x638

Cal Spas Loyal Customers

As the Public Relations Specialist for Cal Spas I get to hear amazing stories from some of our most loyal customers. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to speak to one of our customers and heard his story:

Jeffery moved to Napa, California in 1986 into a home with a Cal Spas installed in which he lived for 14 years. During the 14 years he resided in Napa, his hot tub needed not a single repair. The wood frame unfortunately rot from the extreme weather conditions that come from living in Northern California which were replaced, but the hot tub itself remained in good condition.

He later moved to Redding, California into a home which had another brand name hot tub on a spa deck. Being the loyal customer Jeffery is, he got rid of the old hot tub, and repaired the deck to place a new 2004 Victory Series Cal Spas.IMG_1231[1]

Jeffery called in this week to let us know that he has not had any issues with his hot tub for over 11 years. He, of course, makes sure to perform regular maintenance check-ups and replace filters when needed but again, not a single repair has been needed.

The reason Jeffery continues his loyalty to Cal Spas is because we make sure to provide the highest quality product to all our valuable customers. Jeffery uses his hot tub everyday to ease tension on joints and back pain. He begins his day at 6:30am, makes a cup of coffee and soaks in his hot tub at 101F for 30 minutes, while enjoying his cup of Joe.IMG_1230[1]

This is only one story from our thousands of loyal customers. If you would like to share your Cal Spas story with us, please contact Public Relations Specialist, Angel Beltran at abeltran@calspas.com.
