Quick Tips For Maintaining Your Hot Tub

Hot Tub Start-up Process

Before we deliver your new spa, bring in 2 cups of tap water, and we will test and then produce a report showing what is needed to balance your water.
Optionally add about 1/2 cup Simply Soft AFTER alkalinity and PH are in-line. Simply Soft helps lock in alkalinity and PH for about a week.
*Note: High levels of calcium can lead to scaling and buildup that is difficult to remove, low levels of calcium can lead to corrosion on fittings, pump shafts, and heaters.

Daily Hot Tub Maintenance

Chlorine is one component that keeps you water clean, but it evaporates every 24 hours. Algae can develop within 48 hours, so it’s important to add 1-2 teaspoons of chlorine everyday.

It is also recommended to add 1 teaspoon per person when you get out of your spa for the evening.

An alternative to adding chlorine daily is a “floater” that slowly dissolves chlorine tablets.

Weekly Hot Tub Maintenance

Once you get in a routine this will weekly process takes only about 5 minutes.

Monthly Hot Tub Maintenance

To extend the life of your filter, rinse well in warm water to remove any debris. Do NOT use detergents, it will make your tub get foamy.

Every 3 to 5 Months

Water is like oil and it gets used up, so you will need to change the water.
After 5 or 6 months, Beachcomber and Sundance® 680 series may need a new water filter.
Replace your SunPurity™ Mineral Sanitizer cartridge. (Sundance® 780 and 880 series)
To extend the life of your Sundance® 780 and 880 series water filter, use Filter Fresh to deep clean your filter.
