Care advice for hot tub
To give your hot tub the opportunity for as long a life as possible, it is important to take care of its various parts.
The wooden panel
When you receive your hot tub, all panel pieces are individually painted before the hot tub is assembled. The painting is done that way to give the best protection you can get against the elements. We use a high quality oil glaze for all hot tubs independent color choice. We use the oleic acid for our panel as we want a more vivid result where the grain in the panel can shine through the color in a natural way.
In order to have continued protection for your panel, it is required that you treat your panel afterwards. How often you should treat your panel depends a little on how exposed your hot tub is to the weather and wind, a good basic recommendation is one treatment a year. We recommend using an oil glaze, either transparent or with a similar color for best results.
The plastic insert
Our hot tubs have a plastic insert made of polyethylene plastic. Cleaning is done if necessary using a cloth and possibly some mild detergent without surfactants.
We have two different models of stoves, a triangular-shaped internal stove and an external stove. You regularly remove these ashes with the help of an ash shovel or a coarse vacuum cleaner. If there is too much ash in the stove, the circulation and heating time can be negatively affected.
It is important to make sure that the hot tub is completely filled with water before you start the fire, otherwise the plastic insert and/or the stove may break. Also make sure the fire and all embers are out and the stove is cold before draining the water from your bath.
To get the best heating time, we recommend that you keep the insulated lid on while you fire.
If you do not empty your hot tub after each bath, it is important to keep an eye so that the water does not freeze, no guarantees apply if you keep the water in the hot tub and there will be damage from the water freezing. We therefore recommend always emptying your bath of water when it is cold outside if you do not have the opportunity to keep an eye on the water.
If you have a wood-fired hot tub and your bath is insulated and you have an insulated lid on, the water can stay ice-free for up to a month after you have heated the water, in some cases you may need to maintain the fire in between. Here, however, it is important to remember that if you have an external stove, this needs to be disconnected from the bath so that it is emptied of water, as the water in the stove and the hoses freezes faster than the water in the hot tub. You can disconnect the stove by putting bottom plugs in the holes for the connections, then you can empty the stove and hoses of water.
Purification of the water
If you fill your bath, heat it up and then drain it, you generally don't need to add any germicide. If you use water that you know contains bacteria before heating, you need to add a bactericidal agent, we recommend biocools clear my pool water.
Wenn Sie das gleiche Wasser mehrmals verwenden, sollten Sie auch ein bakterizides Mittel zugeben, um eine garantierte Wirkung zu erzielen, verwenden Sie nur die Pooldesinfektion von biocool.
Zum Entfernen von Schmutz gibt es den Aquaclarus Luftreiniger, den Sie an den Wannenrand hängen können und den Sie vor und nach dem Baden einige Stunden laufen lassen. Es entfernt den oberflächlichen Schmutz und in Kombination mit einem bakteriziden Mittel können Sie das Wasser bis zu zwei Monate aufbewahren.
Um das Wasser frei von Schmutz zu halten, ist es gut, vor dem Baden zu duschen.
Die Öfen können Chlor oder Desinfektionsmitteln mit ätzenden Substanzen nicht widerstehen. Die Garantie auf den Badetonne gilt nur für die Verwendung des Desinfektionsmittels von biocool.
Wenn Sie das Wasser zwischen Ihren Bädern in der Badetonne stehen lassen, ist es wichtig, den pH-Wert, die Wasserhärte und die Alkalität im Auge zu behalten und zu testen. Wenn Sie die falschen Werte für das Wasser haben, kann es vor allem den Ofen an Ihrer Badetonne beschädigen. Unsere Öfen sind auch mit einer Opferanode ausgestattet, diese werden hinzugefügt, um den Ofen vor Angriffen zu schützen. Es ist wichtig, die Opferanode bei Bedarf zu überprüfen und zu reinigen/auszutauschen.
The gas heater
For the best use, it is important that you read the manual for your gas heater before you start using the bath.
It is then good to periodically check between rooms that all hoses and the regulator are intact and look good. The filter for the pump on the gas heater must be cleaned after each bath, if you use very dirty water (e.g. sea water) the filter may need to be cleaned during heating as well. We recommend that you fill your bath with tap water.
If you have a gas-heated hot tub, you must empty the water from the hot tub after your bath during the winter. You must also ensure that the water flows out of the hoses so that they do not freeze. The gas heater and the gas must be stored in a frost-free area when not in use.
If it is very cold outside, it is also important to keep an eye on the gas heater while it is heating, if, for example, the gas runs out or freezes during heating, the gas heater will stop, and there is a risk that the hoses will freeze if you do not have the gas heater under supervision. Also keep in mind that the battery in the gas heater runs out faster during the winter and therefore needs to be changed more often.
