If you are a new hot tub owner or are considering the purchase of a hot tub, you may be wondering about the costs associated with hot tub ownership. One of the most common questions that come up at Aqua Pools is, “How much does hot tub service cost in 2023?”
The good news is, hot tubs do not tend to be high maintenance or expensive in terms of regular care and service. Also, if you purchase a premium brand hot tub such as Marquis® Spa from Aqua Pools, you can expect it to last for many years without the need for costly service calls. Staying on top of your hot tub’s regular maintenance requirements will save you a lot of money in future repairs and costly equipment component replacements.
Basic Hot Tub Maintenance Costs
Hot tubs are relatively easy to care for, with a few tasks rising to the forefront in terms of priority. When you pay attention to these basic tasks your hot tub will reward you with years of enjoyment. Refer to our recent blog post on what you can expect to pay monthly for basic hot tub-related costs.
- Frequently check the hot tub water level. Your pump and filter would be costly to replace, so making sure there is enough water for them to operate properly is essential. Too low a water level can result in serious damage to hot tub equipment. Know where your water level should be and keep it there.
- Maintain a proper pH and chemical balance. Chemical test kits are very inexpensive and water testing and chemical adjustment are routine weekly tasks associated with hot tub ownership. Water testing is a straightforward procedure and keeping your chemicals in balance will ensure that algae, bacteria, scale, and other contaminants do not shorten the life of your hot tub.
- Drain and clean your hot tub every 3-4 months. Regularly and thoroughly performing this task without fail is one of the best things you can do to keep your hot tub operating well for many years. It eliminates bacteria and keeps the components of your hot tub in its best condition.
Regular Professional Hot Tub Service Plans
Purchasing a top-of-the-line product such as a Marquis Spa will make keeping it clean and functional an easier endeavor. That being said, you can see that performing regular tasks to maintain your hot tub in peak condition is the number one thing you can do to avoid paying for pricey service calls and equipment repairs in the future. But what if you are a person who doesn’t have time to perform those tasks yourself? Or what if you aren’t able to? Or what if you just don’t want to? Aqua Pools offers several hot tub service plans that are both thorough and affordable (It’s important to note that Aqua Pools only services spa brands that we sell).
With Aqua Pools, you can opt for weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or seasonal service plans that will keep your hot tub running in tip-top shape. You also get the advantage of having a professional service technician get to know your hot tub and potentially spot any issues before they turn into costly situations. The cost will depend on the size and location of your hot tub and how frequently you opt to have regular maintenance performed.
