Tips From Hydrocare Pools And Spas To Help Keep Your Hot Tub Clean
The hot tub vinyl cover is best cleaned and conditioned by following this step-by-step method:
- remove the cover and spray it lightly with a garden hose to loosen any dirt or debris that might have accumulated.
- using a mild soap solution (1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid with 2 gallons water) or baking soda, scrub the vinyl in a circular motion with a large sponge.
- Promptly rinse with a garden hose. Rinse the bottom of the cover (do not use soap), and wipe it clean with a dry rag.
HINT: Shower without soap prior to entering the spa, and use only the rinse cycle when laundering your bathing suit, helps avoid detergent and soap residue in the spa water.
To clean the hot tub insert or shell, get a mild non-abrasive, non-foaming cleaner and a very soft rag or nylon scrubber. Use these to remove dirt build-up.
Use baking soda for minor surface cleaning.
Spa pillows can be removed and cleaned by following the instructions in your Owner's Manual.
Clean Your Hot Tub Filter Cartridges
Your spa filter cartridges can become clogged with mineral particles or calcification from hard water. This may result in reduced water flow.
We recommend that you clean your filter cartridges every month. Using a garden hose, spray each cartridge and rotate while spraying to thoroughly remove any debris lodged between the filter pleats. Contact us for the best Filter Cleaner products that match your filter.
Your filters should be replaced every three years with replacement filters from Hydrocare Pools and Spas.
