DIY Pool Maintenance – Pool & Spa Parts Brisbane & Gold Coast – Filters

Portable Spas Brisbane

When purchasing a pool or spa you will no doubt have many years of use before things can start to go wrong. Our basic maintenance plan will ensure you have all the information you need to ensure the longevity of your spa. At Aqua Pulse Spas our Australian design team implement the most cutting edge technology and incorporate it into high quality manufactured portable spas and saunas giving you peace of mind that the product you have purchased will outlast the rest. We do recommend however keeping yourself familiar with your spa components and inner workings. Sometimes when the water is cloudy even though you have maintained a regular, scheduled program to keep the water levels in the appropriate zones for pristine clear water, it could be something as simple as your filter not picking up smaller particles and clogging, not allowing the water to filter through effectively. Keeping your filter clean is another imperative part of spa and pool maintenance. We recommend giving it a good clean once every two week to keep it free of debris, just by removing it and hosing it off and also using a filter cleaner which requires soaking, to loosen anything potentially clogging it.

At Aqua Pulse Spas we stock a variety of replacement filters, shop online or in store at our Slacks Creek showroom located between Brisbane and the Gold Coast just off the highway, and talk to Michael and Sharyn from Aqua Pulse Spas about all your pool and spa needs. We know spas and are happy to help our customers 7 days a week, so call us today (07) 3208 4625.

Free Water Testing – Pool & Spa Maintenance Brisbane & Gold Coast

When testing your waters PH levels, the ideal and acceptable range is between 7.2 and 7.8. To keep it at this level, use testing strips, available for purchase on our website to ensure the correct level. Keep the testing trips in a sealed container avoiding any moisture affecting the strips, this can give you an incorrect reading. Testing the alkalinity of the water is also possible using the testing strips and should be maintained at a level between 80 to 160.

 If the levels are outside of this range it is important to use our products to get balance back into your water to keep it in crystal clear condition. With our complete range of spas including a built in set and forget heating system and cooling jets for the warmer months, it is critical to maintain balance in the water to ensure that it is ready for use 365 days of the year.

By also regularly using our spa shock after periods of heavy use, your spa components will be protected from bacteria potentially caused by periods of neglect and imbalance in the levels of your spa water.

 At Aqua Pulse Spas we have free water testing at our Slacks Creek showroom, located 30 minutes south of Brisbane, or 30 minutes from the northern end of the Gold Coast. You can also send us a small sample in a sealed, secure package, (we recommend same day courier for this). We can then test your water for you and let you know the best course of action to increase the life of your spa. Call us today (07) 3208 4625 or visit our showroom.

A recommended maintenance system in crucial to your spa experience. When you purchase your new spa from Aqua Pulse Spas we will give you a step by step, easy to follow program to not only keep your spa water in top condition, but also the required procedures to ensure the longevity of your spa components.

It is highly important to follow the user manual and not use any products that could be potentially hazardous to the inner workings of your spa system. Maintaining the chemical levels with regular water testing and ensuring the balance is correct will help you avoid costly damage to the jets or possibly the surface area of the fibreglass moulded shell. With users often having cosmetics, perfumes, lotions or hair gels that tend to mix in with the water, or even just natural body oils and skin will create an environment prime for bacteria if not managed correctly. Regular use of spa shock after the spa has had a heavy period of use is recommended and does just that, shocks the spa and helps you to maintain healthy water chemical levels. At Aqua Pulse Spas we have free water testing at our Slacks Creek showroom and advice and products to assist you in getting your spa or pool water back to pristine condition and also maintaining it so you can enjoy your spa all year round.

Why Does My Spa Have a Mouldy, Musty Smell? – Free Water Testing Brisbane

free water testing

There can be a number of reasons why your spa has developed a slightly ‘musty’ or ‘mouldy’. The first step in the process of eliminating potential reasons is to have your water checked. At Aqua Pulse Spas we offer free water testing so just bring in a sample and we’ll make sure that isn’t the problem. Because a spa is a quite often warm and moist environment, spending most of its time sealed with a hardcover, it can be an ideal environment for bacteria. This is eliminated by keeping the water chemistry in balance and ensuring your water is kept clean and maintained as recommended.

After checking the water, and correcting any chemical balance issues, if the smell still persists, check your spa cover and give it a thorough cleaning, if your spa has been neglected for any length of time this is also an area where bacteria can possible build up. The next area to check for the same reasons is your filter, build up of debris and bacteria can also cause the spa to emit an unpleasant odour if not maintained correctly. Clean it regularly with a filter cleaner to avoid bacteria build up and if your spa has not been maintained correctly for a significant length of time, we would recommend the filter is replaced, these are available for purchase easily online or at our Slacks Creek showroom.

We recommend regular use of Spa Shock, with users having different deodorants and moisturisers on their body, as well as hair products and natural body oils, it is important to regularly shock your spa. This does just that, shocks your spa and helps to keep the levels at a balanced point so the chances of the chemical balance being out are minimized.

It may be that you need to replace the water in the spa and start again with a recommended maintenance program. Call us today on (07) 3208 4625 or visit our Slacks Creek showroom, Michael, Sharyn and the team will be happy to test your water and troubleshoot any potential issues you may have with your spa water to keep in top condition.
