Balancing Spa Water

Ensure your spa water is properly tested on a regular basis to maintain clear, sparkling water.

Draining & Refilling

We recommend draining your spa at least every 3 months and cleaning your filters regularly to maintain the longevity of your spa.

Cleaning Solutions

Using the proper cleaning solutions is the key to preventing bacteria growth and keeping your water fresh and clean.

Balancing Your Spa’s Water

Before filling your spa or hot tub, you should have your water source either tested professionally or by using test strips that you can purchase from our Arizona hot tub store. By keeping your spa water chemically balanced, you will avoid many problems that can occur with spa water like algae build-up, poor filtration and water circulation, and wear and tear.

Ideally, you should test the water on a weekly basis to check pH, total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels. If your spa water does not fall within the recommended ranges and remains unbalanced, problems such as cloudy water, scaling, equipment corrosion and skin irritation can occur.

Draining and Refilling Your Spa

To keep your hot tub operating at peak performance, we recommend draining your spa water at least every three months or more often if the spa is used frequently. The spa filter cartridge is one of the most important parts. In fact, a clean filter will remove virtually all particulate matter from the water. Maintaining your spa equipment is the key to a long life for your spa. In addition to regular care, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs offers a wide variety of top quality products to handle all your spa care needs from filter cleaners to surface cleaners and everything in between. These products can be purchased at our showroom or our online store.

Cleaning Solutions

Controlling and preventing bacteria growth is the most important factor to maintaining the health of your spa. Using a sanitizer properly controls and prevents bacteria in your spa and keeps the water clean and fresh. No matter which sanitizing system you use, spa water must be maintained at a sufficiently sanitized level to keep the water clean.

The most commonly recognized sanitizer is chlorine. However, the effectiveness of chlorine depends heavily on the pH level of the spa water. To get the most effective and economical benefit of chlorine, a pH range of 7.2 to 7.8 is recommended.
