Pool & Spa Maintenance Services
Ajax Pool & Spa offers a pool and spa maintenance service. Weekly Service is highly recommended for spas that are in use. Spas that are not in use and turned down below 90 degrees can be serviced every other week. We strongly recommend that our Bi-Weekly Customers maintain a temperature of 80 degrees. This maintains the sanitizer for longer periods of time. We will do a drain & clean on the spa every six months.
Chemicals are formulated to be added weekly. Chemicals will normally last a maximum of 10 days in water that is 95-104 degrees. Considering this fact, clarity cannot be guaranteed after one week. We request advanced arrival notification if you are scheduled for service every other week. We are happy to provide weekly service during your stay.
We do not recommend monthly service due to the fact water is unsanitary after 10 days and algae may begin to form.
We will not winterize pools or spas after November 1st. Start-ups will not be performed between Nov 1st and May 1st. Please note we do not recommend winterizing spas. In our experience, acrylic spas develop cracks, blistering, leaks and a host of expensive repairs. Pools above 7000ft should not be winterized. In the harsh climate plaster will begin to crack and peel off. Severe staining due to leaves and water with high mineral content has also been observed. These repairs are very costly and time-consuming. Plasterwork does go into the range of $10,000 in the course of one winter.

Hot Tub Water Chemistry
If the water is not checked regularly, as recommended, it can cause skin and eye irritations. It is recommended that you test your water at least once to twice a week to obtain a baseline reading on it’s chemistry.
Sanitizers – helps keep your water clean and clear
- Too high can bleach clothing, degrade your hot tub surfaces quicker, cause strong smells, skin/eye irritations, and rashes.
- Too low will cause bacteria to grow, discoloration and odors.
- Too high causes cloudiness and scaling of the water.
- Too low will often drive the pH level in the hot tub down, turning the water more acidic, resulting in itchy dry skin and irritated eyes.
- Too high causes irritation to your eyes and skin and if left too long can cause damage the hardware on the tub.
- Too low reduces the effectiveness of the sanitizer’s efforts to keep the tub clean, and the water becomes cloudy. It will also damage the hardware on the tub.
- Shock regularly to oxidize (gasses off) dead chloramines, body oils, sweat and other contaminates from your hot tub water.
Alkalinity – Buffer to pH
Water Filter Maintenance
The filters in your hot tub help to keep it clean and crystal clear. These filters capture any debris, dirt, dust, bacteria, leaves, and more. Hot tub filters, when well maintained, can last for up to two years. Purchase new filters after one year.
- Put filters in a bucket of water to soak for up to 24 hours, but at least 12 hours at minimum.
- Add eight ounces of specialized cleaning solution. This soaking helps to remove bacteria and minerals.
- At the end of this time, be sure to rinse off the filters using your garden hose.
- Make sure you removed all the chemicals and cleaners.
- Please make sure the filters are completely dry before installing them back into your hot tub. When you install wet or damp filters into the tub, you can introduce bacteria into the water.
