The information below is best practice but is not essential to operation, we are just outlining the most hygienic practice for ongoing use.
Change Water Regularly
As a general rule, it’s a good idea to change the water of the spa weekly. You can easily drain it and refill it as the spa range is designed for this. If you have a large body of water, it is a good idea to change the water often even you do use solutions and chemicals. This will ensure a hygienic spa for regular use.
Clean the Tub When Empty
When you have emptied the hot tub, it’s a good idea to use hot soapy water to clean the inner tube thoroughly. This prevents any mould or algae build up over time. Do this at your discretion. If you are emptying it weekly, there’s no harm, in a soapy scrub down of the inside.
Clean the Filter Often
As part of your weekly session, clean the filter in running water. The filter can accumulate dirt and get clogged easily. It is a central part to keeping clean water and so needs attention. You can remove the filter and spray it to unclog any debris or build up which naturally occurs. If it is very heavily clogged, you may soak it in a bucket with a light detergent solution. Let it soak at least 2-3 hours for stubborn debris and then rinse in neutral water before replacing.
Keep the Spa Covered
When the spa is not in use, keep it covered. This will prevent environmental factors such as spills, insects, falling branches from polluting the water. It can also maintain the heat longer which will save your power supply.
Use Organic Cleaning kits
All spas need to be treated with cleaning agents to keep them hygienic. Instead of using harsh chemicals which can be damaging to your skin, creating sensitive eyes etc, it’s better to use organic cleaning solutions such as sanitisers, raisers, clarifiers and boosters. Regular use (every few days/weekly) will ensure that you have a clean spa.
Sanitisers will help neutralise bacteria and contamination of the spa water. Clarifiers will help collate tiny particulars causing discoloration to pass through the filter and aid the overall process. While, boosters will burn away any waste material which causes cloudiness in your spa. It adds an overall clean and fresh sparkle to the water.
