Owning your dream spa allows you to have luxury and relaxation right in your backyard. But cleaning and maintaining your spa so you can squeeze in more soak time doesn’t need to be complicated.
One of the most critical parts of extending the longevity of your investment is keeping your filters clean.
Here are the easy steps to keep your SPA in tip-top shape.
- Regularly check you spa water PH levels.
- Ensure your spa is turned off and fix any leaks
- Tighten any connectors that are loose or leaking water. In some cases, you may need to remove the connector and realign the gasket to solve the problem.
- Unscrew the filters and clean filters regularly.
- Remove each filter, spray it with a garden hose and use a soft bristle brush to clean the ribs and raised edges. Then spray rinse again.
- Spray the filter off with water and cleaning soap. Place the filter in a bucket and soak for a few hours.
- Drain your spa and give it a good clean at least twice a year. A solution of dish soap, household bleach and tap water should work well.
- Run the pump routinely, as a bare minimum, run the pump at least 80 hours a month, whether the spa is being used regularly or not.
