A hot tub in a hotel is the best place for your guests after a long and hectic day.
The breezing jets of hot water calm nerves, relax muscles and soothe every inch of the body, preparing it for a good night’s sleep. However, hot tubs aren’t just a good place for humans; bacteria can hitchhike the ride too.
Bacteria in your hotel hot tubs can often be harmful as they cause rashes in the skin or eyes, UTIs, legionella infection, allergic reactions, etc.
Bacteria and microbes can grow ferociously and leave a bad reputation for your hotel.
Thus, it is essential to maintain specific preventative measures to eliminate any traces of hot tub bacteria while allowing your guests to enjoy a soothing experience.
Inspect The Hot Tub Frequently
The first preventative measure will be a visual inspection to check for slime, algae or foul odour that bacteria produce.
It is the initial stage where you will find out what needs to be done.
Clean Or Replace The Filter
A filter keeps contaminants out of the water, be it dirt, debris, body lotion or other irritants. It is recommended to replace the filter after one year of usage or in bad condition.
If the filter isn’t in bad condition, it can be cleaned. Use a filter cleaner, pour it in 8 gallons of water or otherwise specified and keep the filter overnight. Rinse it the next day, and it should be ready to use as usual.
Give Your Hot Tub A Shock Treatment
Sometimes, a shock treatment using chlorine can do the trick.
Fill Dichlor chlorine in a bucket of water. The quantity to use is 4¾ tablespoons for 100 gallons, 3/4 cup for 250 gallons, 1½ cups for 500 gallons and 3 cups for 1,000-gallon tubs.
Now that the solution is ready pour it into the hot tub and settle. Drain the water and run some more to rinse it.
By the end of the process, your hot tub should be bacteria-free.
Ask Guests To Shower Before Using The Hot Tub
Just like when you are entering a pool, you can recommend your guests shower before going into the hot tub as a preventative measure. This would prevent any dirt, bacteria, and other contaminants from entering the hot tub.
As an additional measure, place our Protocol K-760 lotion hand soap by the hot tub to ensure your guests’ hands are super clean, or our hand sanitizer for added protection.
Remember To Maintain Regularly
Hot tubs require regular maintenance, just like pools. As a hotel owner, there are specific pointers that you should remember.
Clean the hot tub every three to four months, irrespective of build-up. You can use Eliminator 42 for disinfecting the surfaces. Additionally, use sanitizers with bromine or chlorine weekly to keep the water clean.
Don’t forget to wear gloves during the clean-up to prevent picking up any traces of bacteria. You can go for Peroxi 3 for sanitizing the surfaces.
