I don’t know about all of you, but when it starts getting chilly outside I just can’t wait to get into the hot tub. If you are just opening it, there are a few steps to take to make sure your spa is safe to being soaking in again.
- You’ll need to clean out those jets. Whether you drain the tub for the winter or keep the water in, you’ll need to clean all the gunk out of your jets from the previous season. We recommend Leisure Time’s Jet Clean for this job.
- Remove the filter. Very Important!! You’ll also need to clean the filter before putting it
back into fresh water. Now while you’re waiting would be the best time to do so. Use SpaGuard Filter Cleaner and let soak for 15-30 minutes before rinsing.
- Add 16 oz. jet clean to a full warm spa. For those of you who do empty your spa for the winter, you’ll need to fill the tub and let it heat up.
- Run the jets for 15 minutes.
- Turn off the jets for 1 hour.
- Run the jets for 15 minutes to blow all of the dirt and grime out of the lines.
- Drain the spa and clean the tub while draining with BioGuard Off The Wall or Spa Guard Spa Mitts and rinse.
- Re-fill, test and balance to begin your SpaGuard chemical program.
