Keeping your hot tub in the best condition possible is so important.
To keep your hot tub in a good condition, make sure you are properly maintaining it on a routine basis. Cleaning your spa on a regular basis with the right hot tub supplies will ensure a longer and better-quality lifespan.
One of the best ways to ensure that your spa is being cleaned on a regular basis is to create a schedule. You can use this schedule to ensure that each cleaning procedure is being completed, while tracking what has been done and when. You can use a calendar, computer or mobile device to track the maintenance of your spa, or even create an accessible document using Google Spreadsheets that your entire household can see.
The experts at your local hot tub store will be able to walk you through the best products to use to clean your hot tub and the best way to do so. Although, we’ve listed some of the most common tips and tricks to help you keep your hot tub clean and operating efficiently.
A hot tub cannot be fully cleaned if you are only paying attention to the surface of the water. For complete cleaning, make sure you are cleaning each component thoroughly. During this, you should pay special attention to the filter. Due to regular use, oil and grime are often left behind in the filter, which can lead to many issues including murky or cloudy water.
To clean the filter, simply remove it and rinse using your garden hose. For a deeper cleaning, soak it in a filter cleaning solution, which can be found at most hot tub stores, rinse and replace. We strongly advise against putting your filter in the dishwasher or using household products to clean it, as this can damage the filter greatly and even put your entire hot tub at risk.
Drain Before Cleaning
You should aim to completely drain and clean your hot tub about three to four times a year. Once the hot tub is completely drained, you can use a cloth and hot tub cleaning solution to clean the interior and components.
Once clean, you can continue to refill your hot tub and treat with chemicals accordingly.
Professional Hot Tub Service
For the best results, it is recommended to opt for professional hot tub cleaning services. A hot tub technician will be equipped with the right tools and hot tub supplies, which they use to properly clean and disinfect the tub from any contaminants. A professional can also use this time to fully inspect your hot tub system and ensure it’s operating in the most efficient way possible.
