Your Guide To Hot Tub Maintenance
Your tub might have an automatic circulation schedule that runs once or twice a day depending on the model. If not, be sure to turn it on for 15 minutes a day to keep your water fresh.
Among the many benefits of owning an Arctic Spas® is that all of our spas contain High Efficiency Aquaflow Pumps! These pumps have a low-speed amp draw that rivals a circulation pump, but still move approximately 50 gal/min through the filters and allow for our Progressive “Smart” Filtration.
Not only will your tub have superior circulation, but with these energy-efficient pumps, your energy costs will remain low!
Weekly cleaning with a sponge and some white vinegar works well to keep things like the outer shell and cover tidy. You can also use it to scrub away any buildup at the water’s edge.
Clean Your Filters
With reusable filters, it is necessary to rinse the filter cartridges weekly. Every month, and each time the spa is drained for cleaning, clean the cartridges with a filter cleaner. With Arctic Spas® disposable filters, simply replace the cartridge whenever the spa is drained!
Draining Your Spa
Traditional spas recommend that your tub be drained three to four times per year. Through our commitment to being a leader in pursuing energy efficiency all of our models only need to be drained once a year!
Even better, with the addition of Spa Boy® our automated salt water care system, you’ll have an even more cost-effective and low-maintenance solution. Through a process of electrolysis, the saltwater recycles itself allowing you to save on the costs of chemical products while floating in water that feels silky smooth.
