Do you need a pool contractor for your hot tub? Some hot tub owners and swimming pool owners, for that matter, care for and do the maintenance and service of their hot tub and pool on their own. It can certainly be done on your own, but if you have limited time wouldn’t you rather swim or soak in the hot tub than spend that precious free time cleaning and maintaining the pool and hot tub?

Whether you’re new to hot tub and spa ownership or have had one for some time now you know that a hot tub adds to the enjoyment you get in your backyard. A hot tub is also a structure you can use year round — even if it snows where you live! Talk with the swimming pool and hot tub contractors from Imperial Pools in Decatur, Illinois and see whether it makes sense for you to hire them to care for the hot tub or if you want to undertake that task on your own.

Do you need a pool contractor for your hot tub?

What will a hot tub contractor do for you — that you will need to do for yourself if you don’t hire a professional. You may want to track the time and money it costs you to maintain your hot tub on your own and see if it will save you money to hire a professional.

Here is what a contractor will do on your behalf.

  • He will drain it and thoroughly clean it when required. This needs to be done at least once a season and involves completely draining the water, refilling it and adding the proper chemicals.
  • Just as your contractor tests the swimming pool water chemistry, so too will he do the same for the hot tub. Remember, a hot tub, with its heated water, is more prone to bacteria build up and chemistry balancing is crucial to safe water.
  • He will thoroughly clean the hot tub cover to assure no mold is growing that could fall in and contaminate the water.
  • He will thoroughly inspect the hot tub equipment to assure it is working at optimal efficiency. He will also let you know if there are any potential issues and what you can do to address them.

We can come pay a service visit, clean the hot tub for you and give you an estimate on the cost of service. You can then make an educated decision on whether you want to clean the hot tub on your own or hire us, or another contractor to do it for you.
