Owning a Marquis® hot tub from Aqua Pools is about more than just luxury. It’s about embracing a lifestyle of relaxation and wellness. To ensure that every moment spent in your spa is as perfect as the first, maintaining its cleanliness and functionality is essential. This comprehensive guide aims to provide you with all the tips and tricks you need to keep your hot tub sparkling clean, along with how Aqua Pools can assist you in this endeavor.

The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Your spa is a retreat from the stress of daily life, but without proper care, it can become less inviting and even unhealthy. Water that isn’t regularly treated can become a breeding ground for bacteria and algae, while neglected filters and surfaces can degrade the overall experience. Regular maintenance ensures your spa remains a safe, clean, and serene space for you to enjoy.

Daily and Weekly Hot Tub Care

  • Monitor Water Chemistry: Keeping the water chemistry balanced is top priority for a clean and safe hot tub environment. Test your water at least twice a week for pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels to ensure they remain within the ideal ranges. Adjust as necessary using hot-tub-specific chemicals.
  • Filter Maintenance: The filters are your hot tub’s first line of defense against impurities. Rinse your filters weekly to remove loose debris and perform a deep clean with a filter cleaner monthly. Depending on usage, consider replacing your filters every year to maintain optimal performance.
  • Surface Skimming and Vacuuming: Everyday use can introduce leaves, insects, and other debris into your spa. Use a skimmer net to remove surface debris whenever needed and a vacuum for the bottom of the tub weekly to keep it clean and inviting.

Monthly Deep Cleaning and Inspection

  • Shell Cleaning: With the water lowered, gently clean the waterline of your tub using a cleaner approved for spa use. This is also an excellent opportunity to inspect the shell for any signs of wear or damage that could affect your spa’s integrity.
  • Jet Maintenance: Check your hot tub’s jets for clogs and ensure they are all functioning correctly. Regular maintenance helps prevent buildup and ensures an optimal hydrotherapy experience.
  • Fittings and Seals Check: Inspect all visible fittings, seals, and connections for signs of leaks or deterioration. Tightening should be done carefully to avoid over-tightening, which can cause damage.

Seasonal Draining and Refilling

Refreshing your spa’s water every three to four months, or more frequently with heavy use, is key to maintaining water quality and hygiene. This process involves draining the old water, cleaning the tub thoroughly, and refilling it with fresh, clean water. It’s an essential step in hot tub maintenance that removes water with high levels of dissolved solids and refreshes the entire system.
