We had another super warm day today! I have wanted to clean the hot tub for a while now but it is a tough job… and I am a little intimidated by it. I am always a little nervous when I pull up the cover on it because I have seen so many things under there. I’ve seen a few huge centipedes, a tarantula, and countless lizards. They hang out on the right side of the cover near the controls. I am assuming they hang there because it is nice and warm. We never turn the hot tub off it runs all year long at a constant 100°. Some people keep their hot tubs at a hotter temperature but I can’t. If it is any warmer I can only be in there for a few minutes before I start feeling sick. Me and hot hot water just don’t get along very well.
Last time we drained it we used a sump pump. After doing that my brother told me that there is a drain plug somewhere on the tub and we shouldn’t need the sump pump. Sure enough there is one right by the heater so this time draining it was a lot easier. This time we decided to change it from a bromine hot tub to a chlorine hot tub. I think chlorine smells a lot cleaner than bromine.
After it was completely drained and I scrubbed it down it was time to refill.
We also bought this cool thing that floats around the hot tub soaking up scum. I think the product name Scumball is the coolest name ever.
All full and clean again!
