When people think of hot tubs they imagine beautiful, sparkling clean water – not stagnant, stinky water in a dirty hot tub. However, your hot tub water can quickly become unclean if you don’t regularly clean it.
The idea of hot tub care may seem like a big task, but thankfully it is simple – and it won’t take up your whole day! Here are some tips to help you look after your hot tub.
How to Clean Your Hot Tub
You can clean your hot tub using a mild, non-sudsing, non-abrasive cleaner with a soft rag to remove any dirt that has built up. If the stain doesn’t budge, try using baking soda on the problem area. You can clean the vinyl cover by removing it and spraying it with a garden hose to remove any debris that has built up. Once you have done that you can scrub the vinyl with a mild soapy solution. Once you have done, rinse the vinyl again with a garden hose to get rid of the suds. Now you just need to wipe the cover down with a towel or a rag. You can also use a cover shield product to protect your vinyl cover, which will help to maintain the cover.
How to Clean Your Hot Tub Filter
It is also important to clean your hot tub filter so that it doesn’t get clogged up with calcified hard water. You can do this by spraying each cartridge with a garden hose to loosen up any debris, and then you can use a filter cleaner to clean the inside. If your filters are over three years old, you may want to replace them instead of cleaning them, as they will be less effective.
