Hi, we're new to hot tubbing. We bought a house with a hot tub that hadn'tnbeen maintained. Our local spa retailer was very helpful in showing us how to clean/sanatize the tub. We have weekly instructions but should we also do something after use? And where can we find instructions for daily use? Any help would be appreciated

    Hi!  Thank you for your message.  I hope you are looking forward to owning hot tub.  Once the initial clean up has been done, I'm sure you will love it.

    Our goal (through our retailers) is to help make hot tub care as simple as possible, so you can spend more time enjoying the tub and less time working on it.  The weekly instructions will be almost 90% of what you need to do to care for the hot tub and the water.  There aren't really any instructions for daily use beyond the following:

    1. make sure the hot tub has the proper amount of chlorine/bromine (3-5ppm) and an appropriate pH (7.4-7.6) as determined using a test strip or test kit.
    2. if the hot tub is going to have prolonged use, add a small dose of the granular version of your sanitizer (bromine granules/chlorine granules).
    3. Enjoy the hot tub
    4. Repeat :)

    The goal of your weekly maintenance is to prepare the hot tub water for the upcoming week so there is very little to do on a daily basis.  Every 3-5 weeks, we encourage homeowners to take water samples to the retailer to test the water and balance it accordingly.

    If you follow this pattern, you will truly enjoy the ownership of your hot tub and not have to worry about problematic water.

    Remember that the retailer is there for you.  If you have any questions as you go along, feel free to contact them for advice.

    I hope this info is helpful.  Thanks again for your message!
