How to prepare a hot tub for a vacation home rental

Blog provided by San Juan PM

A hot tub is one vacation home amenity that can result in more guests and higher rental rates. Some guests are so enthusiastic about hot tubs that it can sway their decision to choose one rental home over another. If you want to increase your profits by installing a hot tub, here are a few things you should do to prepare your tub for visitors.

Add signs

Some guests may not know how to behave when using your hot tub unless you provide a list of things they need to avoid. If you don’t want your guests bringing food into the tub or removing water from it, make sure those things are written on a sign they can easily see.

Add extra filters or purifiers

If many different people are going to be using your hot tub, it would be in your best interest to make sure the water is as clear and clean as possible as extra protection against dirt, bacteria, sweat, and other potentially harmful elements that can come from the human body.

Set up regular cleaning and maintenance

Filters certainly help, but there is no substitute for regular cleaning and necessary maintenance procedures such as shock treatment (adding chlorine to clear up contaminants) and draining your hot tub to get rid of contaminated water. Don’t wait too long for cleaning and maintenance, as this could cause bacteria to build up inside your hot tub. Be proactive and attentive in the maintenance of your hot tub and your guests will thank you for it.
