Hot tub maintenance is essential for keeping your tub clean, safe, and in good working condition. By following a regular maintenance schedule, you can extend the life of your hot tub and enjoy it for years to come.

Weekly Maintenance

  • Check and clean the skimmer basket.
    • The skimmer basket traps leaves, debris, and other floating objects. If the basket becomes full, it can block the water flow and prevent the hot tub from filtering properly.
  • Test the water chemistry.
    • It is important to test the water chemistry regularly to ensure that the pH and sanitizer levels are within the recommended range. This will help to prevent the growth of bacteria and algae and keep the water safe for bathing.
  • Add chemicals as needed.
    • Once you have tested the water chemistry, add any necessary chemicals to balance the pH and sanitizer levels. Be sure to follow the instructions on the product label carefully.

Monthly Maintenance

  • Clean the filter.
    • The filter is responsible for trapping dirt and debris from the water. Over time, the filter can become clogged, which can reduce water flow and filtration efficiency. To clean the filter, simply remove it from the hot tub and rinse it with a garden hose. You can also soak the filter in a filter cleaning solution for a few hours.
  • Clean the hot tub shell.
    • The hot tub shell can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution. Be sure to avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the surface of the shell.

Every Three to Four Months

Drain and refill the hot tub to remove any build-up of chemicals and contaminants. To drain the hot tub, simply open the drain valve and allow the water to flow out. Once the hot tub is empty, clean the shell and refill it with fresh water.

Additional Maintenance Tips
Keep the hot tub covered when it is not in use. This will help to keep the water clean and prevent debris from falling into the tub.
Check the water temperature regularly. The ideal water temperature for a hot tub is between 102 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit.
Inspect the hot tub for any leaks or damage. If you find any problems, be sure to contact a qualified hot tub technician for repairs.
