There are several steps you can take to ensure that your hot tub is as clean as possible going into prime hot tubbing season, and the best part is that spending a bit of time now could mean that you have a perfect hot tub experience all summer long!
Draining your hot tub is the first step to spring cleaning your hot tub, not only does it help to remove dirt, debris and other contaminants that have built up over time, but it also helps to keep the water in your hot tub fresh and safe for use. By draining the water from your hot tub and starting with a fresh batch of clean spring water, you can ensure that your hot tub will be in working order year after year as a little maintenance can go a long way!
Keeping your hot tub filter clean is an essential part of spring cleaning your hot tub as it helps remove dirt, debris and other contaminants that can build up over time. Cleaning your filter or replacing it ensures a pleasant experience each time you take a dip! It’s recommended to give the filter a thorough cleaning with a cleaning solution at least once every three months or every month if you use the hot tub frequently. This will help keep your hot tub water fresh and safe for use all spring season long!
One of the most important spring cleaning steps for your hot tub is to scrub down the walls, floor and jets. This step helps remove dirt, debris and other contaminants that can build up over time and will ensure peace of mind that you are in a clean and safe environment every time you use your hot tub! It’s recommended to give these areas a good scrub at least once every three months or more often if you use the hot tub frequently.
Properly balanced pH levels and temperature are essential for ensuring a pleasant experience each time you take a dip in your hot tub, as well as helping to keep the water fresh and safe for use. It’s recommended to test and adjust the pH levels of your hot tub at least once every three months or more often if you use it frequently, in order to ensure they remain balanced throughout your hot tub recreation season.
Adding sanitizing chemicals to your hot tub is essential for keeping your water clean and free from dangerous bacteria, algae and other contaminants.

Although it is not necessarily a “spring cleaning” step we just had to mention the importance of using a hot tub cover when it is not in use. This is a regular maintenance task that should occur after every use as, not only does it help to keep dirt, debris and other contaminants out of the water, but it also helps to maintain the temperature of the hot tub and reduce you energy costs. Additionally, using a spa cover lock helps to secure your spa cover when not in use, making sure unwanted guests are kept away from your hot tub while you’re away or asleep.
