STEP-BY-STEP HOT TUB CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
Follow these hassle-free cleaning tips to eliminate bacteria and get your hot tub crystal-clear in next to no time.
Stagnant water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and if water sat in your hot tub all winter long, you’ll need to add a purging agent to clean out the bacteria from plumbing lines.
It’s recommended you drain your hot tub every three months. If this is your first time draining it, follow these steps.
- Turn off the power to the tub
- Remove the panel underneath the main control of your hot tub
- Lift the white drain hose, and cut the plastic tie on the hose
- Unscrew the drain cap and remove it
- Connect the drain hose to your garden hose and direct it to a drainage area
- After the water has been drained from your hot tub, disconnect the garden hose and screw the drain cap back on
Clean the Interior
Clean thoroughly inside the hot tub with a non-abrasive solution. Don’t leave any stone unturned or use any solution that creates suds.
Clean the Exterior
Remove the dirt from the outside using a scrubber or a soft rug. Prepare to scrub hard if there’s a sticky build-up in certain areas.
Clean the Cover
Hot tub covers need just as much as care and maintenance as the tub itself does. Inspect the entire cover for any tears or holes. If you find a small hole, repair it with a patch.
Clean the Filters
Before cleaning your filter, you should refer to your owner’s manual. Start by removing the filter. Rinse it thoroughly under high pressure. This will help you remove any particles and debris that cannot be cleaned with the pressure from the water.
