Everything you need to know to buy and maintain your hot tub
Inflatable hot tubs are growing in popularity and can be a great alternative to solid side hot tubs. If you are a renter with a patio or yard space for a hot tub, want the flexibility to move your hot tub or only use it seasonally, then an inflatable hot tub could be perfect for you. They are affordable, easy and quick to setup, portable, low maintenance, durable and cost a lot less than permanent hot tubs. On top of all that they are comfortable! Yes you have to make some tradeoffs with inflatable hot tubs, but there are also many advantages.
The weather is turning cooler, days are getting shorter. Time to time to think about putting away your inflatable hot tub! Most brands recommend putting away your inflatable hot tub once temperatures drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius).
The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals recommends free chlorine levels for both swimming pools and hot tubs be kept between 2.0 and 4.0 ppm. However, the Center for Disease Control recommends free chlorine stay above 1 ppm in pools and 3 ppm in hot tubs.
The ideal pH level in both swimming pools and hot tubs is 7.4 to 7.6. This is the level where water is most comfortable for swimmers while also maximizing chlorine’s sanitizing ability.
