Thanks to advanced water management and filtration systems, spa maintenance is easier than ever—routine tasks take just a few minutes a week. When we surveyed current owners about basic spa maintenance, nearly all of them said it was easy. Here’s a quick summary of how to maintain a spa:
Water: Check the chemical levels weekly with test strips and adjust them by adding the appropriate products per your owner’s manual—no chemistry expertise necessary. Drain and refills are only needed every 3-4 months, based on use.
Filter: Rinse and clean filters with a garden hose or filter flosser once per month. Replace as needed.
Cover: Use a cover to help keep your water warm and clean. It will protect your spa from debris and weather elements.
How often and in what manner you clean your hot tub will depend on two factors: how often the spa is used and the manufacturer.

A clean and functioning filter is key to an operational filtration system, as it catches and removes dirt and debris, keeping the water clean and free of impurities. We recommend rinsing the filter every two weeks with fresh water from the hose or kitchen sink. You can also use this time to spray it down with a filter cleaner and then continue to rinse. Filter cleaning nozzles are available that can be attached to the end of a hose, which can help water to better reach the nooks and crannies of your filter. Soak your filter overnight in a bucket filled with water and a small amount of filter cleaner every two months to remove deep-down debris. We recommend replacing your hot tub filter annually to ensure a fully-functional filtration system.
How often you change your hot tub water can depend greatly on how often the spa is used, the quality of water used to fill it and how well the water is maintained. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend draining, cleaning and refilling the hot tub every three to four months for an optimal operation.
