Stress Relief From Hot Tubs

Warm water therapies have been proven as an effective way to improve health through the centuries. In ancient Rome, natural spring waters were popular and known for having special curative powers. Heat and massaging jets are best for relieving everyday stress that creates muscle tension and restricts blood flow, causing sleeplessness, fatigue and headaches. These physical ailments can affect your thoughts, our moods and our ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

Suntek Pools and SpasHydrotherapy is the use of water as a medical treatment, to help a person relax and relieve minor aches and pains. In a hot tub, these three key elements combine to create a hydrotherapeutic effect.
  1. Heat dilates blood vessels helping promote blood flow to sore or damaged tissue areas.
  2. Your body weight is reduced by 90% due to buoyancy, helping relieve pressure on joints and muscles.
  3. Massage jets relax muscles and relieve pressure on nerves

Why You Should Service Your Hot Tub for the Winter Months

It's hard to believe that summer is actually over, but now it's time to start planning ahead for winterizing your hot tub. To start off, you should consider leaving your hot tub on and running throughout the winter months. Relaxing in your hot tub while the snow is all around you is truly a different feeling that many of our customers enjoy. Of course, this will depend on the winter we will have and your tolerance to going outside in the cold to use your hot tub.

We recommend flushing out your hot tub every 6 months, depending on the condition of the water. Remember, if this process is done incorrectly, you can end up damaging the hot tub. If you decide to winterize your hot tub for the entirety of winter, freezing water can burst pipes and other fixtures in your spa that can be very expensive to replace.

Our Hot Tub service technicians at Suntek Pools and Spas are experts at winterizing hot tubs as well as flushing their systems. Our Spa Drain, Clean and Fill service includes:
  1. The Spa is drained
  2. We clean the tub with a fast acting surface clean that removes all tough water lines and grease build-up.
  3. The tub is rinsed, vacuumed and wiped down with a towel.
  4. The shell of the tub is waxed from the waterline to the lip of the tub to protect the acrylic finish from chemical attack and fading from UV rays.
  5. The spa is refilled with fresh water.
  6. The filter cartridge is cleaned with a spray on formula to remove oil, grease, calcium and scale formation.
  7. The spa cover is cleaned with a heavy duty liquid UV protectant.
  8. The operation of the tub is check to make sure that the heater, pumps, blower, and controls are working properly.
  9. The water is shocked with a chemical that disinfects the water that kills any bacteria.

How Do I Get Rid of Hot Tub Foam


As a hot tub gets more use and people are in and out regularly, dissolved solids that don't belong in the water begin to build up causing the hot tub to foam. Some of these dissolved solid include: body oils, shampoo, soaps, lotion, and detergents.  When the level of these solids reach a certain point, they rise to the water surface, producing the foam we all hate.

At Suntek Pools and Spas, we'll give you detailed direction on HOW to get rid of Hot Tub Foam.  For a quick fix, we offer Leisure Time Foam Down, a non-oily concentrated foam suppressant.  This product differs from other foam suppressants because it was specially designed for use in hot water.  It has an easy flip-top lid for accurate and direct application.  It is important to note that consistent and excessive foaming indicates water problems.  If your hot tub water is still filled with foam, stop by our Farmingdale location with samples of your water.  Our water testing technicians will help you determine the correct plan of action.

How To Prevent Hot Tub Foam
  1. Rinse off before getting in the hot tub to wash off all soap, makeup and other body residue.
  2. Once in the water, avoid going under water.  Long hair contains plenty of chemicals that will definitely affect the water.
  3. Make sure all bathing suits are clean and rinsed before entering the water.
  4. Don't spill drinks in the hot tub!
  5. Drain the hot tub regularly to ensure the freshest water.
