How Often Do You Need to Clean Your Hot Tub?

Enjoying a daily soak in your spa is more than just a relaxing activity (although, it is definitely great for relaxing!). From decreasing stress to easing muscle aches and improving your blood pressure, the benefits are endless. Only one thing could ruin your evening soak: a dirty hot tub!

We’d hate for that to happen. But not to worry, as cleaning your spa is easy and doesn’t require too much work. We have a few guidelines, outside of your regular chemical maintenance, so you can make sure your spa stays in tip-top shape.

Clean the Filters

A quick rinse with warm water or even with the garden hose will keep your filters working properly. A good standard is to clean them once every 2 weeks, but do it more often if you’re using your spa heavily or having lots of guests over.

Circulate the Water

As many spas do this automatically, you may not need to think of it at all, but if your hot tub doesn’t, twice a day circulate the water for 10-15 minutes. The more the water circulates, the cleaner your spa stays.

Weekly Wipedown

Once a week, give your spa’s shell, the jets, and the waterline a quick scrub with a sponge. White vinegar makes a simple, all-natural cleaner and does a great job of removing any scum building up at the waterline. Every other week, give your cover a quick wipe to keep mildew away (a 10% bleach solution is a great cleaning option for the cover).

Monthly Drain and Clean

During regular use, to keep your spa clean, you’ll need to drain it and clean it every 3-4 weeks. Again, if you’re using your spa heavily or having a lot of guests over, you’ll want to do this step more often. After the hot tub is clean, refill it, and test the water to ensure your pH level is between 7.2-7.6.

Combined with your regular spa chemicals, it requires very little physical effort to keep your hot tub clean and sparkling, so it will be ready for a soak any time you need one!
