Step-by-Step Hot Tub Cleaning Instructions

Maintaining your hot tub might require a little bit of time and discipline, but it’s not hard. If you follow the next steps, you will be able to regularly take care of your hot tub without any hassle.

  1. Skim the surface of the water with a net, to eliminate leaves, bugs and other debris
  2. Rinse your filters with water regularly, and do some deep cleaning once every few weeks, keeping in mind that the frequency largely depends on how often you use your hot tub
  3. Test the chemistry of your water frequently for hardness and acidity, as off-the-charts levels might affect the health of your water
  4. Correct and maintain the balance of the water by purchasing tablets and other related hot tub sanitary products.
  5. Each product is different, so you should ask the experts at Olympic Pools & Spas for more information about how to use specific products when purchasing them. Most products are geared towards weekly or monthly cleaning cycles
  6. Aim to drain the water from your hot tub completely about three to four times a year. Once the hot tub water is drained, do a complete cleaning of the hot tub. This includes rinsing the filters, using a cloth and cleaning products to wipe it down, and refilling it with clean water
  7. When cleaning your hot tub and related components, make sure to avoid using products such as household and automotive chemicals, which are not suitable for the purpose and could potentially damage your hot tub and even pose significant health risks.
  8. Make sure to use your hot tub covers when the tub is not in use, not only to keep you hot tub cleaner, but also to preserve the temperature of the water and use less energy
