What kind of maintenance and cleaning does an outdoor hot tub require?
Outdoor hot tubs are easy and effortless to maintain and clean. It is good to always add chlorine or some other water treatment chemical into the hot tub after bathing, or once per week even when no one has bathed in the tub.
The fiber filter needs to be rinsed at least twice per month and replaced every time you change the water, i.e., twice per year on average.For washing the fiber filter more effectively, we provide a filter cleaning spray, which effectively removes oil, grease and limescale from the fiber filter.
When you change the water 2–4 times per year, the hot tub needs to be wiped thoroughly with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth and cleaning agent. The sanitary acrylic surface is a hard, glossy and easy-to-clean material, making the care of the surface very easy. As a cleaning agent, we recommend using TecCare’s disinfecting cleaning spray. TecCare effectively cleans and disinfects all surfaces. The product effectively destroys 99.999% of bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.
When you change the water, the plumbing must also be washed with plumbing cleaning agent. This product is intended for the effective cleaning of the plumbing, and it removes any dirt and grease accumulated in the plumbing.
What is there to maintain in an outdoor hot tub?
Novitek outdoor hot tubs are handmade in Salo, Finland, with only the highest quality hot tub components and equipment. Our goal is that there will be nothing additional to maintain.
We have, however, taken into account possible risk factors and as easy serviceability as possible in the design of our outdoor hot tubs. The insulating boards are attached directly to the siding, allowing for easy maintenance of all parts. All pumps and electronics are installed on platforms, so that any possible water leaking to the machinery space cannot damage them. All pumps and electronics can also be replaced without emptying the hot tub.
The maintenance of Novitek outdoor hot tubs is handled centrally in Salo. We have all spare parts in store, so you can be sure that the hot tub is repaired swiftly.
How often must I change the water in my outdoor hot tub?
The water of an outdoor hot tub should be changed 2–4 times per year depending on the utilization rate of the hot tub. The water does not need to be changed anymore frequently than this, because the water is treated in three different ways simultaneously. With the fiber filter, ozonator and cleaning chemicals, the water stays clean and clear.
1.The fiber filter collects small, loose debris from the water. The fiber filter needs to be replaced every time you change the water. The service life of the fiber filter can be prolonged and filtration efficiency improved by rinsing the cartridge 2–4 times per month with running water. For washing the fiber filter more effectively, we provide a filter cleaning spray, which effectively removes oil, grease and limescale from the fiber filter. The filtration system of all Novitek® outdoor hot tubs is completely automatic.
2. All hot tubs manufactured by Novitek are equipped with an ozonator. The purpose of the ozonator is to remove bacteria, particles and stuffy smell from the water. The system is functioning when the gray ozone jet at the bottom of the hot tub produces bubbles. The ozonator is completely maintenance-free and does not require any measures by the user. Nevertheless, we recommend replacing the device every 3–4 years to achieve the best possible effectiveness in keeping the water clean.
3. The purpose of cleaning chemicals (chlorine) is to keep the water disinfected, clear and clean and remove bacteria from the water. In addition to chlorine, the cleaning chemicals used can be chlorine-free active oxygen tablets or SpaBalancer water care agent. More detailed instructions on the administration of cleaning chemicals can be found on the package of the chemical.
How do I empty the hot tub?
The hot tub is emptied with a submersible pump into the wastewater drain. With the Novitek submersible pump, the hot tub is quick and easy to empty. Our pump is made of a durable material. Thanks to its good design, the pump drains the hot tub almost entirely empty. The pump is easy to use, because it does not have a separate float switch.
What kind of warranty do the outdoor hot tubs have?
All Novitek outdoor hot tubs have a warranty program of 10 years. The warranty program is a proof of quality and guarantees the user with carefree years of bathing.
