Spring Cleaning Your Outdoor Hot Tub Installation
With the promise of summer right around the corner, it is time to start thinking about preparing your backyard area for the pool parties, picnics, and family gatherings that warmer weather promises.
If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor hot tub, this item should absolutely be included on your chore list. Hot tubs, BBQs and other outdoor accessories, like gazebos and fire features, should all be regularly maintained to ensure the best function.
Cleaning Your Hot Tub
To kick off your spring cleaning, consider starting with the hot tub. Experts recommend starting to clean your outdoor hot tub installation at least a week before you intend to do this.
Allowing yourself this time to prepare your hot tub ensures that you do not feel rushed. This time period also allows for proper chemical distribution, time to check chemical levels and change the water if needed.
All in all, contributing to a safer spa experience. While working to ensure your outdoor spa is the best it can be, be sure to check hot tub filters, and that you have enough hot tub chemicals on hand to complete the job. Interruptions to run to the store will only slow down opening up your outdoor hot tub.
The Rest of Your Backyard
While sitting in your hot tub and enjoying the experience, you do not want to look out onto a poorly cared for yard. Make it the best it can be. Start by raking leaves from the lawn, garden boxes and anywhere else they may have accumulated.
Collect any and all garbage and remove dead plants from flower beds. This makes a huge difference in the appearance of your yard. The removal of such debris allows your lawn to flourish and makes room for new flowers.
Make It Yours
Now that you have a clean canvas to work with, and a well-maintained hot tub, it is time to really make the space yours. Consider adding a new focal piece to your space. Some ideas for this could be a new fire feature, a water fountain or even some fun updated lighting. If you are looking for ways to add more seating to your space, think about some homemade benches.
These can be altered to even add in storage for pool accessories, such as hot tub chemicals. To provide more shelter and shade to your yard, there are many retractable awnings to choose from. This allows your guests to relax in the shade, while still being part of the party.
