How to Clean Your Hot Tub This Summer!

Keep your Cal Spas Hot Tub in great condition this summer! Here are spa maintenance tips that will help you maintain your spa with ease.

Keep Your Spa Covered Daily

Keep your hot tub cover on after each use. Covered spas will use less electricity in maintaining your set temperature. Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. You are required to keep the spa covered to maintain warranty coverage.

See the manual enclosed with your cover for instructions on mounting the locks and how to lock and unlock the cover.

Check the Water Temperature and Adjust as Necessary

Check for Damage to the Cover and Spa

Staying aware of your spa is key to keeping your spa in great condition.

Test the Spa Water

You can use Reagent Test Kits, which is a method that provides a high level of accuracy. It is available in Liquid form or Tablet form. Another option is Test Strips, which is convenient and common for spa holders. You want to balance the total alkalinity, calcium hardness, and the pH.

Replace Your Filter

We recommend you replace your filter about once a year, depending on your spa usage and bather load. Before you place a new filter in your spa, make sure you remove the plastic wrapper. Soak the filter a minimum of 24 hours before you insert it in the filter well.

Never use a filter too small for your spa’s water capacity!
