There’s nothing better than relaxing in your very own hot tub, however, without the proper hot tub maintenance, your experience can quickly become less than pleasant! When you step into your hot tub, you should be confident that the water is clean and that the tub itself isn’t harbouring any dirt or bacteria. As our hot tubs continue to fly off the shelves, we thought it was time we asked our experts for their top tips on hot tub maintenance. From daily tasks to weekly and monthly deep cleaning, once you know how to keep yours in top condition, you can sit back and enjoy the bubbles.

3 Top Tips for Hot Tub Maintenance

Daily hot tub maintenance cleaning tasks

If you use your hot tub daily, you should start to get into a routine of hot tub maintenance after you’re finished. These are not mammoth tasks, they’re simply there to keep on top of any dirt or debris. 

Use a cleaning net to fish out any large pieces of garden debris. This includes any leaves, petals or twigs that have fallen in while the cover is open.

Take a clean cloth and remove any tidemarks that appear in the tub.

Check your hot tub chemical levels, especially the pH and sanitiser levels that kill bacteria in the water. The pH level should ideally be around 7.2 and 7.4, if it is too high it may be too alkaline which can make the water cloudy and allow limescale to build up.

Weekly hot tub maintenance cleaning tasks

It’s likely that your hot tub use will vary over the year, however, during the summer or periods where it is getting a lot of use, these weekly tasks should always be completed. 

Turn off the spa and unscrew the ‘skimmer basket’. This is used to capture any debris that comes into the pool, which can quickly build up if the tub is used regularly. Pull out the basket and clear out anything within.

Add a chlorine treatment to the tub to ‘shock dose’ the water. This will kill bacteria in the tub as well as break down any chloramines that are formed when the sanitising chemicals react to sweat and dead skin. Once you have added the chlorine treatment, wait the recommended time before using the tub again. Test the water to check the chemical levels before hopping back in.

3-monthly hot tub maintenance cleaning tasks

The 3-month hot tub maintenance clean is otherwise known as the deep clean. This is where you thoroughly clean the tub as well as the pipes and equipment that is used with it. 

Add a pipe cleaning product to the tub and allow it to circulate to flush out the pipes and components of the hot tub. Turn off the jets and leave the product in the tub overnight.

Unplug the hot tub and completely drain the water. Check the filters to see if they need a separate clean.

Using a clean, damp cloth, wipe down the inside of the tub. Try and avoid using any harsh chemicals when cleaning. A natural solution would be to use white or distilled vinegar, alternatively, there are specialist hot tub cleaning products available.

Once the hot tub is cleaned, fill it back up with fresh water.

Add the right balance of chemicals to the water (determined by the specific model)

Replace the cover while the chemicals are adjusting to ensure no debris or dirt gets into the clean tub.
