A key component for any relaxing soak in your Spa Pool is some comfortable headrests. The last thing you want when you’re melting your worries away is to find floating pieces of your headrest enjoying the warm water with you. In this article, we will give you an overview of what can cause your headrests to break down as well as provide a few tips for extending their lifespan.
What Causes Headrests to Breakdown?
As we all know, Spa Pools require a regular dosing of chemicals to keep their water sanitised and safe for bathing. However, adding these chemicals can have a detrimental impact on your Spa Pool’s headrests. Strong oxidising agents within your water are an excellent way to neutralise harmful bacteria, unfortunately, they are also effective at breaking down your headrests. For this reason, we strongly recommend removing your headrests when your Spa is not in use. This will allow you to add all the chemicals you need and give those oxidising agents time to rid your water of bacteria without having any headrests for the chemicals to waste their time on. Fortunately, the majority of Spa Pool headrests operate on a simple clip-in or out, making this a quick and painless task.
How to Avoid Headrest Degradation
With the level of chemicals within your Spa water having a direct impact on the functional integrity of your headrests, effective water care also becomes very important.
