Sometimes clients tell us they have heard that buying a used hot tub can be dangerously unsanitary. Although we suspect the danger is greatly exaggerated by spa retailers, we have to admit it’s gross to end up with a grungy tub. Sometimes we are surprised at the yucky stuff that comes out when we flush out a tub for the first time.
We have developed a system to aggressively flush the plumbing back and forth with special products to clear out scale, grime, and whatever else that can accumulate in the pipes, pumps, hoses & jets. Then we flush sanitizers through the system and scrub down the shell’s interior. Not only does this process sterilize the spa, but it also makes it run better.
Tip: check the filter. If it’s gross & stinky, consider it a bad sign.
