​​Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Step 2: Drain and Rinse

Start by draining your spa completely. Follow your hot tub manufacturer’s instructions for the proper draining procedure. Once the water has been drained, use a hose to rinse away any remaining dirt and debris.

Step 3: Apply Hot Tub Cleaner

Now it’s time to apply a hot tub cleaner. Follow the instructions on the product label, and be sure to cover all surfaces, including the walls, floor, and seats. For tough stains or scum lines, let the cleaner sit for a few minutes to work its magic.

Step 4: Scrub Away Dirt and Stains

Using a soft-bristled brush, gently scrub the surfaces to remove dirt, grime, and stubborn stains. Be thorough but gentle to avoid damaging the hot tub’s finish. You’ll be amazed at how effective a little elbow grease can be.

Step 5: Rinse Thoroughly

Once you’ve finished scrubbing, rinse the hot tub thoroughly with clean water to remove any leftover cleaner and residue. Proper rinsing is essential to ensure your spa water remains safe and chemical-free for your next soak.

Step 6: Refill and Rebalance

Now that your spa is clean and pristine, it’s time to refill it with fresh water. Follow your manufacturer’s guidelines for filling and add the necessary chemicals to balance the water chemistry. Use the test strips to check the water’s pH and sanitizer levels, making adjustments as needed.

Step 7: Regular Maintenance

To keep your hot tub looking and functioning at its best, regular maintenance is key. Here are some tips to maintain a clean spa:

  • Test the water regularly and adjust chemical levels as needed.
  • Clean the filter regularly to ensure proper water circulation.
  • Encourage bathers to shower before using the hot tub to reduce oil and dirt buildup.
  • Cover the hot tub when not in use to keep debris out.

And there you have it! Your hot tub is now fresh, clean, and ready for endless hours of relaxation and enjoyment.
