snake oil salesmanHot Tub Show is in town!


These words generate a lot of excitement for people who think there is a great deal coming to their area. It just amazes me though that anyone would buy something from a traveling show.

When they leave town they are gone!

Yes, I am sure they say they will be there for you when you need service, but really?

This is OK for snake oil but a hot tub will need service some time in its life and then what?

My opinion is buy local and buy made in America.
 
The Pierces have been in business for 25 years.  And we are here to stay - for our customers.

People of all ages love to enjoy a hot soak after a long day or to socialize with family and friends. However, there are some special issues relating to people of a certain age that should not be ignored.

  • Soaking in hot water causes blood vessel to expand, causing fluctuations in blood pressure
  • There can be a long list of bacteria in the water if it is not chlorinated properly. These bacteria can be bad news for lower immune systems.
  • Certain sedating medications can cause alarm when mixed with the drowsiness effect caused by soaking in the hot water.

Always be safe:


Don't get in the hot tub while drinking alcohol or using sedating medications
Check with your doctor first if you have any circulatory issues
Use steps with hand rails
Never hot tub alone
Don't let a musty leftover smell curb your hot tub use.  Just a few basic steps will keep you and your tub smelling good.

First, put your tub on a cleaning schedule. This helps prevent the filter and pipes from building up stinky grundge.

Make sure to check the PH Balance regularly. A good PH is 7.4 - 7.6. Also, check the recommende use of sanitizing chemicals. Your levels of these may be too low. A high PH and low chemical combination can cause an unpleasant smell.

Also, if you notice and mold around the inside of your cover or the edges of your tub you will want to scrub and disenfect those areas immediately.  A solution of diluted bleach works great for this.  Don't forget to check up under that flap in the creases.

One last thing does not help keep the smell away but will help the tub smell better is adding a smell good product. 

Enjoy you hot tub and smell wonderful doing it!
ancient-hot-tubThe history of hot tubs and spas is as old as history and can be traced back before recorded history when early man made use of the earth's natural hot springs. Hot springs fed streams and pools, which were used for warmth and natural treatment by early man. Native Americans, were well aware of the healing properties of natural hot springs.

As early as 2000 B.C., ancient Egyptians used hot baths for therapeutic value.  As early as 600 B.C., Phraortes (King of Media [ancient Persia]) built one of the first known hot tubs.

The great philosophers of Greece (Plato, Hippocrates and others) make mention of the therapeutic value of water. Grecians were known to have built structures around hot springs.

Below are a good examples of what can be helped when you soak in a Nordic Hot Tub.  Our spas have whirlpool jets AND massage jets giving you whole body relief - not just where you sit.


In a Hot Tub - you sweat from the increased temperature not from burning fat.  So any weight loss is due to the weight of the water you loose.

Be sure to set the temperature of your hot tub to not exceed 105 degrees (F).

This being stated, we recommend using aqua aerobics in a pool - as a low impact form of exercise.

Aqua aerobics in a pool has of late become a popular way to try to lose weight.  There are some add-ons that allow you do do aerobics in your hot tubs.

Check with All Brevard to see what they recommend.


IRS-logoThe IRS stated in its opinion letter Index No.: 213.05-00, " Section 213(a) allows as a [tax] deduction the expenses paid during the taxable year for medical care of the taxpayer, spouse, or dependent. Under § 213(d)(1)(A), an expense is for 'medical care' if its primary purpose is the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease. Notice the words "primary purpose".

You must make sure your hot tub is "primarily" for the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease before you can deduct the cost of your hot tub on your tax return.  This is best backed up by your physician.

You may be able to claim your hot tub as a tax deduction even though you also derive pleasure from it and even though someone else such as your spouse may use the spa, as long as you are buying the hot tub or spa primarily to relieve pain due to an injury or disease.

OZONE FACTS

Ozone, sometimes referred to as energetic oxygen, is a powerful oxidizer of contaminants in water. It is made available for hot tubs and spas through the use of ozone generators called ozonators. Ozone is formed when three atoms of oxygen are bound together, instead of the normal two. If you have ever detected a faint, sweet smell in the air after a lightning storm, that was ozone!

When the temperature climbs, your hot tub becomes a place to cool down.

Living in Florida is a joy and cooling down during the Summer months cannot be easier than with a hot tub - What? 

Although your core body temperature is 98, your skin temperature runs between 94 and 96.  So if you reduce your hot tub temperature to 92-94, you will feel cooled off while you soak.  When you get out, you will be refreshed for hours.

Just reduce the temperature setting, or turn the heater completely off and enjoy!  The water in your hot tub will quickly drop if you uncover the tub while running the air jets.  Now your tub is a place to chill out! Since water heats more slowly than the outside air, the insulated spa will maintain its lower temperature from evening into the following day. And unlike an in-ground pool, a covered, insulated portable spa will not absorbe heat from the sun during the day.

To maintain cooler water, keep your spa covered during sunny days when not in use. Run the spa with the spa cover open and with water features and air jets operating during the evening.


Easy Ways To Keep Your Hot Tub Clean

To clean the hot tub insert or shell, get a mild non-abrasive, non-foaming cleaner and a very soft rag or nylon scrubber.  Use these to remove dirt build-up.

Use baking soda for minor surface cleaning.

Spa pillows can be removed and cleaned by following the instructions in your Owner's Manual.

The hot tub vinyl cover is best cleaned and conditioned by following this step-by-step method:
  1. remove the cover and spray it lightly with a garden hose to loosen any dirt or debris that might have accumulated.
  2. using a mild soap solution (1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid with 2 gallons water) or baking soda, scrub the vinyl in a circular motion with a large sponge.
  3. Promptly rinse with a garden hose. Rinse the bottom of the cover (do not use soap), and wipe it clean with a dry rag.

HINT: Shower without soap prior to entering the spa, and use only the rinse cycle when laundering your bathing suit, helps avoid detergent and soap residue in the spa water.

Clean Your Hot Tub Filter Cartridges

Your spa filter cartridges can become clogged with mineral particles or calcification from hard water.  This may result in reduced water flow.

We recommend that you clean your filter cartridges every month. Using a garden hose, spray each cartridge and rotate while spraying to thoroughly remove any debris lodged between the filter pleats. Contact us for the best Filter Cleaner products that match your filter.

Your filters should be replaced every three years with replacement filters from All Brevard Hot Tubs.

Prepare, Winterize and Close Your Hot Tub

If you take a little more time preparing your hot tub for winter, you can open it in very short order in the Spring. 

Prepratory Clean

  1. 24 hours before emptying the hot tub, add a degreaser to remove oils from skin and bath products. These can build up in the pipes and jets. 
  2. Sink an underwater pump into the tub and remove stale spa water

Clean Vents and Filters

  1. Remove the cartridge filter from the skimmer. Be sure to clean all around the skimmer.
  2. Soak the filter in water mixed with a filter cleaner to dissolve oils and built-up sediment. Rinse well and set aside.  Check with All Brevard Hot Tubs for the recommended cleaner.
  3. Vacuum any remaining water with the shop vac.
  4. Replace the cartridge filter into the skimmer.

Wipe Down and Polish all Surfaces of the Spa Hot Tub

  1. With a non-abrasive polish, clean all surfaces of the hot tub.
  2. Clean and polish any controls and handles.
  3. If you are closing your hot tub for winter, go to the next step or skip it to if you will continue to use your hot tub in winter.

Close the Hot Tub and Cover for Winter

  1. Pull all plugs and open all of the drains to make sure your hot tub is empty & dry.  Any water remaining may cause pipes to crack if the water freezes.
  2. Open a pipe union near the whirlpool pump to vent out air.
  3. Unplug and turn off all power to the hot tub.
  4. Put on the hot tub cover.
  5. Cover with a protective tarp.  Be sure to tie id down with rope, cords or velcro strips.



smelling-armpitsKeeping your hot tub covered for long periods of time can produce a musty or mildew smell on your cover after a time.

That’s why it’s important to keep your cover clean and free of these odors.

To help prevent this mildew smell, use a small amount of bleach (10%) added to water (90%) and wipe down the bottom of the hot tub cover every 60-90 days. This will help prevent your cover from getting that musty smell that everyone dislikes.
Do more frequent partial water changes instead of complete water changes to improve water clarity and water chemestry in your hot tub. This is common practice with fish tanks - it also works with your hot tub.

Many are generally not sure why they have to change the water in their hot tub. The main reason is to reduce TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) and make water balancing much easier.


All Brevard Hot Tubs sell many hot tubs curing the Winter, and doing partial water changes (more frequently) is much more convenient and faster than a complete water change.

How to keep your Hot Tub cover protected and looking good.

Vinyl Hot Tub Covers

Vinyl material used on hot tub covers is a backed fabric.  It has an outer layer made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).  When it is manufactured, it is sealed with a top layer containing plasticizers, colors and softeners.

Because your hot tub cover spends all its time outside and under the Florida sun, it is important to protect it against UV damage. Our covers use Marine Grad Vinyl to resist UV damage and mildew resistenance.

Protecting your Investment from Damage


On a monthly basis, we recommend using a vinyl conditioner to wiped down the tub cover.  It will keep it looking good and it will maintain its UV protection.  Below is a list of cover cleaners with UV protection:
  • 303 Aerospace Protectant
  • Spa Essentials Spa Spa Cover Wipes
  • Clor Mor® Spa Cover Cleaner
  • Pool Solutions Cover Cleaner
  • Leisure Time Spa Care (Mfg#3192)
  • EcoOne Shell and Liner Cleaner
Note: The UV-blocking ingredients in your cover care product will also work on your outdoor furniture that uses vinyl.

Note Note: Be sure to NOT use a product that is labeled "Flammable"

salt-treateSALT TREAT

Salt Treat’s patented formula is the perfect recipe for removing stains in Salt Water Pools

Salt Treat is a patented stain remover designed specifically for removing stains in Salt Water pools.

While salt water and chlorine generator pools are a popular alternative, an often drawback is their frequency to leave light stains on the surface of the pool. Salt Treat eliminates this by dissolving the stains of the surface and keep metals dissolved in water for up to 60 days. What you’re left with is all the benefits of a Salt Water System and none of the drawbacks.

Salt Treat also prevents calcium build-up from forming on the salt cell generators, making your equipment last longer and work more efficiently.
Very easy to use, simply add one bottle of Salt Treat per 20,000 gallons to your swimming pool in the affected area. Then just follow up with a treatment every 60 days to keep your salt cell system in tip-top shape while keeping stains from coming back.
  • Provides a barrier to surface staining
  • Protects against efflorescence(calcium)
  • Protects wall fittings original color
  • Retains natural look and is suitable for all pool surfaces
  • Prevents scaling of the cells in all chlorine generators

What is Salt Treat?

Salt Treat is a sequestrant & a chelator. Those are fancy words for a metal holding, stain remover and preventor chemical.
