How to Clean Your Spa?

Your spa is a haven where you go to unwind and get away from everything that is going on in your life. It’s supposed to be somewhere that you can hide away if you need some time to yourself.  You can't do that if it’s filthy or working incorrectly. Instead, you’ll just get frustrated and won’t be able to get the relaxing soak that you’ve been looking forward to all day, or all week.

You want to make sure that you keep your spa clean throughout the year so that you can enjoy it whenever you want to, without having to deal with the hassle of cleaning it first. No matter what time of year it is, it’s never too late to clean out your spa properly. This step by step guide will help you to get your spa clean without a lot of hassle or headache.

Before emptying, apply your main cleaner into the spa water and let it circle through the jets. This will clean out the funnels and the insides of the spa. You can do this step on a regular basis so that you keep the insides of your spa free from debris, dirt, and buildup. If you’re doing a full cleaning, you will want to completely drain your spa.

Wipe down the spa to clean any leftover debris or residue (if any) from the side wall. Vinegar is a great option for cleaning this area. Make sure that there is absolutely nothing left on the walls, because it could hinder the cleaning process later on and make your efforts moot. To appropriately clean the acrylic surface, experts suggest wiping the surface with a delicate moist fabric (or wipe) utilizing standard home cleanser or a fluid spa cleanser. Don't use any cleaning items containing abrasives since these could dull the surface and make it more difficult for you to maintain. It could also make it easier for holes to develop in the liner, if there is one, and it could reduce the lifespan of your spa as well.

Now that everything has been cleaned and the insider of your spa looks as pristine as possible, it’s ready to go. The next step is for you to refill your spa. Keep in mind to turn your indoor regulator the distance to "cool" or “low” and leave it there until after the spa is filled and the majority of your pumps are working appropriately. Turn your indoor regulator over to the desired setting after you have made that the majority of the pumps are working as they should be, and then allow it a couple of hours to get up to the temperature that you want it to get to. 

When you get to this point, you want to make sure that you are putting the chemicals back into the water. Check the pH, adjust the levels, check all of your other chemicals and whatever else you may put into your spa (different people put different things in your spa) and get it ready to go. The combination of the spa heating up and time will allow the chemicals to get to their appropriate levels and allow the spa to be ready to use once again. Wait about 24 hours after a full cleaning to use the spa, to allow everything to settle and to prevent potential issues due to the chemicals and such.

It isn’t incredibly difficult to clean your spa, and if you get the help of your family, you can get through the whole process in about an hour. Enjoy your nice, pristine, clean spa and the warmth and relaxation it brings to you and your family!
