Congratulations! Purchasing a hot tub is your first step towards a lifetime of relaxation. In fact, hydrotherapy is a great way to de-stress, heal and even restore mental and physical health. Hot tubs and spas have proven to be a worthy investment for your body and mind. So, it would only make sense that you maintain and take care of your hot tub and hot tub accessories.
Creating a regular schedule can help to keep your spa in excellent condition, at minimal cost. Hardware replacement can get expensive, so regular upkeep is definitely a must! In this article, we take a closer look at a few ways you can save on hot tub maintenance.
Daily and Weekly Maintenance
If you make use of your hot tub regularly, make sure to add a teaspoon of chlorine sanitizer and a capful of shock to the water after each use. By running the jets for a few minutes before closing the cover, you allow for the filter to clear itself of dirt.
Check the water once a week, using test strips that indicate the outdoor pools pH levels. There are wonderful products available at Jacuzzi Hot Tubs of Southeastern PA help to keep the water soft and fresh.
Take the filter out and replace it with a clean, dry one about once a month. Use a garden hose to rinse out the filter, soak it in a filter cleaner solution, rinse it out with the hose again, and then swap it with the other filter.

Replacing your filters annually is recommended, depending on the model and usage. The UV-C bulb can also be replaced, effortlessly. Give your hot tub a thorough check-up once a year, to make sure that everything is in tip-top condition.
Drain and replace the water once every three to four months, making sure to replace the mineral cartridge and micro filter during this time. First, power down your hot tub and then cut the power completely. Open the drain for your hot tub and allow all of the water to flow out. Using a cloth, hose, bucket of water, and hot tub cleaning products that are approved by your local hot tub dealer, give the hot tub a good clean. This includes rinsing the filter and getting into all of the nooks and crannies. Rinse your hot tub out with hose water, and then close the drain. Once your hot tub has been completely refilled with water, add the appropriate hot tub chemicals and start it back up again.
Tips and Tricks for a Cleaner Hot Tub
Try adding a tennis ball to your tub after you’ve used it. The fluffy fibers on the tennis ball will soak up any lingering debris, including lotions, soaps and extract oils, that may be left behind after a session.
Have users take a quick shower before using the hot tub. This will help to reduce the amount of debris entering the spa, including lotions, oils, shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, dirt, and sweat.
Don’t forget about your hot tub cover! You should check your hot tub cover for cracks, rips, odors, and damage in general. If it’s increasing in weight, that is another tell-tale sign that it might be time for a new cover, as increased weight often indicates that water has built-up inside, which can lead to mold and bacteria.
No eating or drinking inside the hot tub! Crumbs and spills can quickly lead to less-than-favorable hot tub water before you know it. We recommend bringing a reusable plastic water bottle with you and drinking only water from it, in order to stay hydrated.
We recommend scheduling hot tub service from the professionals to ensure that your spa is in tip-top shape.
