If your spa displays either OH or HH on the topside control panel the sensors in the heater have detected temperatures over 110°F which will cause the spa to shut
itself off. DO NOT ENTER THE SPA!! Remove the cover and let the temperature
cool down before resetting the breaker to restart the spa.

If these messages appear again, place a thermometer inside the spa and compare the temperature reading to the value displayed on the control panel. This information will help us diagnose the problem and speed up the repair process. Please contact Canadian
Spa
if you need further advice.

The massaging action of a spa will accelerate the healing process of aches and pains. Warm, swirling water reduces stress and allows you to rest, giving you a better night’s sleep by refreshing your body and mind to tackle the next day. Sufferers from arthritis with painful or inflamed joints will find that hydrotherapy will help relax the muscles and allow a greater range of motion in the joints.

  • Pain relief: Endorphins are natural painkillers for the body. Warm water stimulates their release. When the body is in warm water, blood vessels near the skin relax.
  • Sound Sleep: Warm swirling water reduces stress and allows you to rest and get a better sleep. Sleep deepens as body temperature drops. Experts recommend that people who suffer from sleeplessness soak in a spa at 100° to 104°F (26°C – 40°C) for 15 minutes before bedtime.
  • Post-hospital operation therapy: Following hospital operations rehabilitation programmes may include hydrotherapy to help patients recover faster.
  • Open Up the Sinuses: When feeling a little congested, the steam rising off the hot water can help to open up nasal passages. Inhaling warm, moist air has long been a home remedy for upper respiratory problems.
  • Beating Backaches: Adjustable jets that move up and down the spine soothe inflamed tissue and relieve the pain.
  • Recover from joint injuries: The warm, swirling waters can speed recovery from minor injuries, and it can often be incorporated into a rehabilitation program after a more severe mishap.
  • Relief for Headaches: Many people find that soaking in a hot tub relieves headache pain, especially pain from tension headaches. As the body relaxes, so do the muscles in the head.
  • Arthritis: Painful or inflamed joints can cause muscles to tense in an effort to protect them. Warm water and hydrotherapy help relax the muscles and help relax the muscles and allow a greater range of motion in the joints. Pain is often reduced, even after leaving the spa.
  • Easing Fibromyalgia: Immersion in water promotes relaxation, reduces muscle fatigue and lessens pain perception
  • Critical disease treatment: Hot tubs are used at many cancer treatment centres to help patients deal with the emotional burden of their disease.

If you are feeling stressed or suffering from lack of sleep a hot tub can help you get a better night’s sleep and ready to face the following day with renewed energy. Here’s how a soak in the hot tub can help:

Buoyancy: When you put your body in water, you tend to float. This removes much of the tension in your muscles, so right away you are reducing the physical stress your body has accumulated over the day.

Warmth: There is no denying that the warmth has a soothing, calming effect on our bodies and probably also on our spirits.

Steam: Breathing in steam has been known to lift a person’s mood and calm a person’s anxieties.

Water: People have known for years that water soothes and relaxes. Listening to water flow is soothing. Watching water flow is soothing. Dipping your feet in warm water is soothing . Hot tubs offer all these features.

Massage: The water jets on your back can further reduce muscle aches and tension. Many long-term insomniacs have discovered that a hot tub gives them the first good night’s sleep in years. The trick is to give time for your body to cool itself down between hot tub and going to bed – so wait for between 30-60 minutes before you go to bed and you’ll sleep like a baby.

SLEEP TIP: Sleep better at night knowing your hot tub is protected. Get a hot tub cover to keep animals, things and neighbourhood kids from falling in. For more information on our spas contact Canadian Spa.

After a long, hard day of work, many people enjoy hot tubs to rest, relax and reduce stress. Good health is so essential to a high quality of life.

Therapeutic Treatment

A hot tub is fun, romantic and exciting for all age groups. Most people don’t take care of every part of their body. When they sit down in a hot tub, the soothing jet bubbles tickle their skin and massages their sore muscles from head to toe. People just feel better when sitting in a hot tub.

Hot tubs have many therapeutic uses. These are the main health benefits:

  • Water: Water can treat dry skin, painful joints and ailments by providing moisture and buoyancy. Water naturally cleanses the body so that pores can breathe more freely. “Hydrotherapy” is used by many physical therapists because water’s natural buoyancy can reduce the stress on the patient’s joints. Patients can gradually rebuild muscles by moving through water.
  • Temperature: Humidifiers are used to clear out nasal, throat and lung passages. This is good for people with asthma. A soothing hot tub is a natural humidifier. Alternating cold ice with a hot tub soak can treat sore muscles and injuries. The hot tub’s temperature can be used as part of the natural healing process.
  • Massage jets: Many types of massaging jets – swirl, whirlpool and pillow – can target different parts of the body. Strong streams of water soothe aching muscles. Movable jets can also be installed for flexible jet therapy.

Preventative Health Care

A hot tub dilates your blood vessels, increasing your circulation and the growth of white blood cells. It can also help you perspire out bad toxins. A hot tub helps relieve painful aches before they become a serious problem.

Health care costs can be extremely high. If a hot tub can help illnesses, injuries or diseases, then it could result in significant health care savings. A hot tub can be used as a medical treatment for medical conditions (Always consult your doctor before using a hot
tub for relieving medical conditions).

Every now and then your spa can start looking dirty or scummy. Doing a little of the regular cleaning is a good idea to ensure a safe and healthy environment in your home spa, especially for young children whose immune systems are not as robust. Make sure the tools, equipment and chemicals are suitable for your specific tub model to avoid damage.

The cleaner the water in your spa, the more it will revitalise you improving your health and wellness. You should also change the water of your spa and hot tub every 60 days and the filter should be cleaned monthly.

Staining on the hot shell: The best way to deal with this is to prevent
stains in the first place by keeping your water pH balanced.

Scale build up on the waterline: Vinegar can be used to clean scale off the hot tub
body. However, getting vinegar into the hot tub water can alter the pH,
resulting in further problems. Partially drain the hot tub, and scrub the sides
using a sponge to avoid vinegar running down into the water.

Use Stain and Scale Control to protect your spa’s heater element, jets, and other parts from calcium build up which can damage your spa, reduce efficiency, and impair performance. Using this product regularly could save you money in repair bills that are often not covered under warranty. TIP: Do not use abrasive cleaners or any cleaning product that
contains bleach. Always use soft clothes or sponges otherwise you could risk
scratching the surface.

 

Cleaning a filter:

Regularly clean the filters; we’d recommend every month. You can use a product like a ‘Waterwand’ especially for this purpose and hose your filters thoroughly especially between their pleats. It is advisable to clean your hot tub filters every 2 or 3 weeks.

Change your filters every 2-3 months

Changing a filter:

  • Turnoff spa power
  • Remove the cartridge from the filter housing and use a garden hose or a
    tap to wash down the filter. Rinse until all dirt and debris have been removed.
  • Dissolve 9oz / 250 gms of Canadian Spa Filter Free in 10 litres of luke warm
    water (one capful holds approximately 1oz / 30 gms). use a plastic pail and mix until the solution turns red (always read the label). Soak the filter cartridge for at least 1 hour (overnight is recommended).
  • Rinse the cartridge again after cleaning to remove any traces of
    cleaning solution.
  • Always dry the filters before inserting them back into your hot tub.
    This ensures that the filters perform to their best and last longer. Let them
    dry naturally. It is also a good idea to keep a spare set of filters.
  • Do not run spa without filters
  • To order more filters call 1-877-347-7727 or visit our website: http://canadianspacompany.ca/contact-us.html

Buy a hot tub cover: Hose it down to get rid of any dirt and use a mild detergent
and sponge to clean the top. Clean the underside with water only and dry off
thoroughly.

During the autumn and winter when the temperature gets colder your hot tub has to work harder to stay warm. This can increase the cost of your energy bill. There are ways to reduce the amount of energy it uses:

  • A worn down hot tub cover reduces insulation efficiency, also make sure your cover is not getting heavier, this means it’s becoming waterlogged and needs to be replaced. If you don’t have one already purchase a quality Canadian Spa hot tub cover to provide important insulation for the water in the hot tub, keeping it warmer.
  • The temperature at which you set your water can make all the difference in the energy used. When you are not using for long periods of time, lower the temperature in order to save energy consumption.
  • In order to maintain privacy erect a fence, panels or shrubs around your hot tub to reduce wind exposure to the hot tub/water keeping it warmer.
  • Whenever you’re not using the hot tub, make sure the jets and lights are all off. Also, avoid air blowers as they can reduce water temperature, making your hot tub work harder to stay warm.
  • Operating your spa with clogged spa filters reduces the circulation in your hot tub and forces it to use more energy. Make sure to check your filters regularly
    and clean filters when needed. It’s safe to assume that they need to be cleaned
    whenever you do a major clean on your hot tub.

By applying these simple changes, you can save energy and money whilst helping your hot tub run more efficiently.

Prepare your hot tub ready for springtime

One of the key tasks  in spa maintenance is preparing your hot tub for the spring and summer time. It is good practice to inspect your hot tub and hot tub cover for damage caused by the elements.

Here is some general tips for inspecting your spa (always refer to your Instruction Manual for maintaining your hot tub) :

  • If there is any water in the hot tub, remove it. Ideally, you did this when you shut down your hot tub before winter. After the winter season inspect your cover for any leaks or cracks caused by snow or rain.
  • Inspect the pump, valves, pipes, and filter casing. Ensure that there are no splits or cracks. If any of these parts are damaged, replace them.
  • Thoroughly clean your hot tub filter and hot tub shell.
  • Fill the hot tub. As you do, keep a close eye on it, checking for leaks or cracks which may not have be visible on first inspection.
  • Start up your hot tub and make sure that all controls are properly working. It’s better to discover any problems now rather than to discover a problem with your hot tub when you were hoping to use it.
  • Add and adjust chemicals to the water according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

If your hot tub cover has cracks, leaking or shows signs of age or degradation it means that you need to purchase a new cover – to order a new hot tub cover contact Canadian Spa.

Once you have made the decision to add a hot tub to your garden, the next step is
to complete the scene with a landscape that suits your needs and creates colour
and interest, without requiring too much maintenance in order to enjoy your
private spa.

There are many different types of architectural and landscape materials available such as stone, brick, wood, simulated wood made from synthetic materials, foliage, shrubbery, water fountains or waterfalls, or fencing and hot tub enclosures.

So what makes a good garden spa landscape:
  • A private and enclosed hot tub
  • Boundary walls softened by planting
  • Generous paved areas with grass neatly edged
  • Contemporary layout, ornaments and garden furniture

Locate your hot tub in a sheltered private part of the garden so that you can relax at leisure. Paving or decking next to hot tubs is comfortable on the feet but make sure it can dry out well and does not become slippery. Where possible site decking in a sunny position.

Use smooth but non-slip concrete, paving stones or hard bricks, which will absorb the heat of the sun during the day and retain warmth.

Gazebos

Enhance your home spa with the Canadian Spa freestanding gazebo (3 x 3 metre).

Gazebos can create a safe, warm environment so that you can enjoy your spa all year round!

Complete your hot tub purchase by turning your home and garden spa into a home resort. This Fraser bar kit gazebo allows guests who are not in the hot tub to interact. The gazebo includes a bar counter with 4 cushioned stools and you can also choose colour matched decking tiles (optional) to complete your package.

Lighting

Another landscaping and backyard planning aspect to acknowledge is lighting. Does your backyard have a sufficient amount of lighting including a well lit pathway? Create your own mood lighting to a great ambience.
