How to Prepare Your Hot Tub for Spring

Spring is just around the corner, and whether you closed your hot tub for the winter or not, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. You will want to complete your spring cleaning by the time April rolls around, so you won’t have to interrupt your prime spa season. Since the spring cleaning will take a little more time than your weekly hot tub maintenance, it’s good to start thinking about it and make a plan. Check out our quick guide on how to prepare your hot tub for spring.

Drain, drain, drain today…

If you didn’t drain your hot tub for the winter, it’s now the most wonderful time of the year: time to drain your hot tub. If you already own a Jacuzzi®, you know that it has to be drained and refilled every three to four months. Draining and refilling it right around late March to early April will get you through the summer before needing another refill, depending on your hot tub usage. And when the next time comes around, it’ll be nice and hot outside. So, you’ll be able to have some fun with the draining!

Time for a deep clean.

Before you refill your hot tub, take some time to deep clean it. First, make sure all of the debris is out of it. Next, you’ll want to give it a really deep clean to make sure any mildew or mold is removed. Make sure to check everything, including the pumps and valves, for leaks and buildup. Once you know the surface is clean, you can clean the filter and refill your hot tub.

Create the perfect balance.

Now that your hot tub is nice and clean, it’s time to make sure your water is too. Luckily, when you get your chemicals from Texas Hot Tub Company, balancing your water is a breeze. We offer two options for maintaining your Jacuzzi hot tub: Silk Balance® Everfresh or Softsoak Trio®. These take the guesswork out of chemicals to keep your hot tub in great condition. Silk Balance Everfresh only has to be used once a week to maintain and protect your hot tub and has no chemical odors. The three-step Softsoak Trio system keeps your water soft and clear, while also protecting your hot tub’s surface. Both options are great, but the SoftSoak Trio is particularly recommended for new hot tub owners.

Once your water chemicals are balanced, your hot tub is ready for spring!
