The whirlpool bath has therapeutic functions that allow you to enjoy a real treatment at home. Its benefits are considerable, to name only its relaxing side. You must therefore choose your balneotherapy bath and keep it clean.
In addition, it fully contributes to your hygiene. It is therefore important to maintain it on a regular basis. This is essential maintenance to continue as you use it. However, bath products like bath oil and shower gels should be banned from your basin, as this is not a classic bathtub.
Maintaining a spa bath is quite easy, as long as the installation of the bathtub has been done right and you clean it properly. With frequent use, dirt deposits will be inevitable. Added to this is the hardness of the water which is not very favorable to its hull and its various accessories.
This requires you to clean the tub after 5 uses. And on average, the machine should be completely cleaned every 1 to 2 months.
Relationship between frequency of cleaning and use
As has been said above, the spa bath needs to be cleaned regularly. However, maintenance is highly dependent on the frequency of use and the hardness of the water. You can therefore minimize the risks if you use a water softener. During cleaning, all parts of the device are used, namely, nozzles, injectors, pipes, walls and bottom.
In addition, a lack of maintenance promotes the development of bacteria which are nevertheless responsible for bad odors but also for certain reactions such as small dermatological problems.
Automatic cleaning options
There are models that are equipped with the automatic cleaning option, which further facilitates their maintenance. To do this, simply activate the automatic cleaning after each use. So you can get rid of any fatty deposits. This option also prevents tartar from forming on the wall of the spa bath. In fact, these traces are often caused by too hard water.
The self-cleaning option is characterized by automatic drying, thus avoiding water stagnation after each bath. We find especially automatic drying in the most advanced systems. In principle, it uses ozonated air. In addition to purging the pipes, the ozone molecules will be returned to the pipes to kill bacteria.
