You spend a lot of time and money when it comes to your hot tub. To ensure your hot tub is always up and running smoothly, take the time to learn various hot tub troubleshooting tips and tricks.
Regularly clean out the filters
Clean filters every 3-6 weeks. Monitor how frequently the hot tub is being used in order to be aware of the filters. Filters must be changed in order for proper hot tub function. Hot tub owners should change these every 1-2 years When cleaning them, ensure the hot tub is powered down or place the spa in “hold” mode. Once the spa is on hold, remove the filter cover to access the filter cartridges. Once the filters are removed, spray the filters down with the hose to remove the loose debris. After that’s complete, soak the pleated filters for approximately 6-12 hours in a bucket of warm water with some filter solution to remove body oils from the filters.
Check Water Balance

This will not only save you money on chemicals because you’re using fewer, but it will save you money on water.
