Inflatable Hot Tub: How to Maintain Spa Water. Short Guide

Proper use of chemicals and the proper balance of water in the spa are the most important factors that you can consider when it comes to maintaining the health and appearance of your facility's water. Aside from being clean, the water must also be treated properly to prevent bacteria and other harmful substances from entering the body.

Follow these procedures to provide proper spa water quality

  • Take a shower before entering the spa.
  • Cover the spa with the spa cover when you don't use it
  • Changing the filter cartridge once a week is very important to ensure that it works properly and prevents the water from getting into the system. A dirty cartridge can cause an error code.
  • Even though the water is still cloudy, it's important to change the water supply periodically to ensure that it's still working properly. This can be done by dividing the spa gallons by three, and then by the average number of people using the facility per day.

  •  If the chemical floater is included, add a small amount of chlorine to the water by filling it with a chemical tablet. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to ensure that the chlorine is completely dissolved. When the spa is in use, remove the chemical floater.

  •  The sanitation function of a saltwater spa should be performed once a day. If the facility is not in use, this can be done for 3 to 4 hours. On the other hand, regular use of the facility can allow you to run the system for up to 8 hours a day.

Test Strips

Before you use the spa, make sure that the water is thoroughly tested to ensure that it is free of harmful chemicals. The test strips can be used to check the levels of chlorine, pH, and total alkalinity in the water. You can also ask a local spa or pool store to test it for you.
