Once you’ve finally bought your jacuzzi, you naturally want to enjoy it for as long as possible. You can considerably extend the life of your spa by maintaining it well. This maintenance also includes cleaning the jacuzzi. But what’s the best way to clean a jacuzzi?
How do you clean the jacuzzi?
Emptying the jacuzzi
Before you empty the jacuzzi, it is best to first clean the pipes with Spa Tube Clean. You can use this product to clean the pipes of your jacuzzi.
Add Spa Tube Clean and turn on the pump. This allows the product to spread well.
Once the pipes have been disinfected, you can drain the jacuzzi. Rinse out the jacuzzi using a garden hose.
Renew the water 3 to 4 times a year
A healthy jacuzzi requires regular fresh water. So renew the water in the jacuzzi 3 to 4 times a year. Make sure the pump is off when doing this.
If you are changing the water, it is also advisable to carry out maintenance on the walls and bottom of your jacuzzi using the Whirlpool cleaner. The waterline in particular requires some maintenance as it is there that dirt or deposits accumulate quickest. Use a soft sponge or cloth for this so as to avoid damage to the tub.
Some people clean the jacuzzi with soda. This is not advisable, however, because the product is often not powerful enough to completely remove the dirt and deposits.
Also clean the cover and the headrests. These items come into regular contact with the water in your jacuzzi . When the cover and supports are cleaned, they can’t release dirt into the jacuzzi. So you have less contamination in your jacuzzi.
Cleaning the spa filter
You should clean your jacuzzi or spa filter at least once a month. Make sure your jacuzzi pump is switched off when you do this. Not cleaning the filter regularly enough can lead to the filter cartridge becoming clogged with limescale. This can result in poor water circulation.
Remove the filter and clear the initial dirt from your jacuzzi, e.g. using a garden hose.
Then use a product to clean the filter: Spa Cartridge Cleaner and allow it to take effect for a few minutes (3 to 6 minutes).
Then you can rinse the filter again with clean water.
There, the filter is back in top shape to filter your jacuzzi.
After 1 year it is best to replace the filter cartridge with a new one.
Filling the jacuzzi with fresh water
Once the pipes, the tub and the filter of your spa have been thoroughly cleaned, you can refill it with fresh water. It is better to use mains water for this rather than rainwater or well water. There is too much contamination in rainwater and well water.
Now that your spa has been refilled, you can relax again!
Less dirt with a cover
If your jacuzzi is outside, a lot of dirt probably gets into it. If you want to avoid this, you’re better off getting a spa cover.
Because less dirt will get into the spa, you won’t have to clean it so often.
