Your Step-by-Step Hot Tub Spring Cleaning Instructions

Follow these hassle-free spring cleaning tips to eliminate bacteria and get your hot tub crystal-clear in next to no time.

Purge Your Spa

Stagnant water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and if water sat in your hot tub all winter long, you’ll need to add a purging agent to clean out the bacteria from plumbing lines.

Drain the Hot Tub

It’s recommended you drain your hot tub every three months. If this is your first time draining it, follow these steps.

  1. Turn off the power to the tub
  2. Remove the panel underneath the main control of your hot tub
  3. Lift the white drain hose, and cut the plastic tie on the hose
  4. Unscrew the drain cap and remove it
  5. Connect the drain hose to your garden hose and direct it to a drainage area
  6. After the water has been drained from your hot tub, disconnect the garden hose and screw the drain cap back on.

Clean the Interior

Clean thoroughly inside the hot tub with a non-abrasive solution. Don’t leave any stone unturned or use any solution that creates suds.

Clean the Exterior

Remove the dirt from the outside using a scrubber or a soft rug. Prepare to scrub hard if there’s a sticky build-up in certain areas.

Clean the Cover

Hot tub covers need just as much care and maintenance as the tub itself does.

To clean it, take it off the tub and lay it on a flat surface. Use a soft brush or sponge to wipe down the cover. You can use a mild soap and water solution or a specially-formulated hot tub cover cleaner.

Rinse the cover thoroughly and inspect the entire cover for any tears or holes. If you find a small hole, repair it with a patch.

Clean the Filters

Before cleaning your hot tub filter, you should refer to your owner’s manual. Start by removing the filter. Rinse it thoroughly under high pressure. This will help you remove any particles and debris that cannot be cleaned with the pressure from the water.
