Spring has officially sprung and you know what that means: spring cleaning! From deep cleaning to reorganizing, spring is the perfect time to tackle tasks you’ve been putting off. If you are starting to make plans for spring cleaning, don’t forget your hot tub!
Hot Tub Cleaning Schedule
Keeping your hot tub clean is one of the most important tasks for any spa owner. If you don’t drain and clean your hot tub from time to time, it will be hard to keep your water sparkling clean. One of the easiest ways to stay on top of routine hot tub maintenance is to make a cleaning schedule and make a note on your calendar or set reminders on your phone. Here’s a general schedule that you can start with and adjust to fit your needs.
- Test your water 2-3 times per week (and test before each soak)
- Shock your water at least once a week, more during periods of high use
- Skim the water and remove debris after every use
- Clean the shell above the waterline every couple weeks or when you notice a buildup
- Remove and clean filters at least once a month
- Every 3-4 months, drain and clean your spa
How To Deep Clean a Hot Tub
Every few months, your hot tub will need a good cleaning but don’t worry, it’s easy! First, drain it. If you’d like to conserve water, you can actually recycle your spa water. You can reuse it for everything from cleaning to watering plants. Just test it beforehand to make sure the chlorine has dissipated and the pH is balanced.
Next up, check your filter, clean it, and replace it if needed. Then give the shell a good scrub to remove any build-up. Once your hot tub shell is cleaned and your filter is ready to go, it’s time to refill the spa! With fresh water, a refreshed filter, and a squeaky clean shell, your next soak will feel extra luxurious. So remember, when you prepare your spring cleaning, don’t forget your hot tub!
