A lot of different factors can contribute to water clarity. We will be sharing some tips we’ve learned over the years with you over the next few articles. We’re confident that following a few simple steps will ensure you have sparkling clear water all the time!
First, let’s start with the basics:
When is the last time you drained your spa?
Spa water should be drained about every 3-4 months, but there is always a chance your spa will need to be drained more often. Consider how often your hot tub is used. In the spa world, “high use” of a hot tub is considered 2 or more people, 3+ times a week. (And 2 people in a spa is like having 30 people in a pool!)
Also keep in mind that an average person produces 1 pt of sweat per hour in a hot tub. Consider 2 people using the tub for 1 hour, 3 times a week= 6 pts of sweat, 24 pts per month. etc. etc. You get the picture- eventually you’re not really soaking in water- ew! So, it’s best for water clarity to drain the spa at least every 3-4 months!
