Advice for the maintenance of outdoor bathtubs: always ready to go.

It is essential to properly maintain outdoor bathtubs, so as to extend their useful life as much as possible and enjoy all the features available to you in Noken's collections:

  • Shower before each use: This ensures optimum water quality during your bath, and therefore maximum hygiene as the water is free of dirt and bacteria. This also helps keep the filters and pipes of the hydromassage technology clean, which keeps them in good condition for longer.
  • Changing and using the water: This is, without a doubt, fundamental for the maintenance of outdoor bathtubs. Unless products such as essential oils or relaxing bubble baths have been used, the water can sometimes be reused (having first checked on its colour or condition).For outdoor hydromassage bathtubs, at least, the water must be changed every two to three months. This may vary depending on the personal use and requirements of each individual and its maintenance with disinfection products on a regular basis. 
  • Looking after the pipes: To properly maintain the pipes, they must be fully purged before emptying, as mould or other organisms could get stuck within the pipework. 
  • Cleaning outdoor hydromassage bathtubs: It is important to use products such as baking soda, which can remove any viscous stains due to damp and mould. Once the areas have been cleaned and rinsed, we recommend drying them with a clean cloth to completely remove any residue of cleaning products.
  • Never expose an empty hydromassage bath to solar radiation, as it can be damaging. Therefore, we recommend covering it if it will not be used or employing a special shelter for the bathtub to protect it.

 

FAQs on outdoor bathtubs: What should you take into account?

What are the requirements for installing an outdoor bathtub?

Firstly, the placement of an outdoor bathtub requires a suitable and resistant structure, which can handle both the weight of the tub (here we must also consider the weight of the water as one cubic meter of water weighs approximately one tonne), as well as the humidity and any possible leaks that may occur. Aside from being secure in both safety and architectural terms, the flooring must be suitable for purpose (waterproof, non-slip, etc.).

Do I need a platform for an outdoor bathroom?

Not necessarily, but it is important that the surface is straight and level in order to correctly install the outdoor bathtub. As previously mentioned, the flooring must be suitable for purpose within an outdoor bathroom and for contact with water.

What size do I choose for my outdoor bathtub?

The first thing to consider before selecting your outdoor hydromassage tub is the space that you have available which complies with the specifications detailed in the previous paragraphs. Now we can think about what we are looking for in the bathtub according to personal needs. We could choose the desired shape, whether curved like the Soleil Round or square like the Soleil Square lines, and the size which best fits our space from Noken's Outdoor collection.
