The Biggest Hot Tub Maintenance Myths Debunked
If you think that hot tub maintenance requires just as much
work as a pool, think again. Contrary to what you may have heard, it’s surprisingly simple and can take as little as 10 minutes each week. During your first 100 days of owning a Jacuzzi®brand hot tub, it’s especially important to learn the truth about your hot tub, so here’s a handy list of the biggest debunked hot tub maintenance myths.
MYTH: Constantly getting in and out of the hot tub tracks in dirt and debris that builds up on the shell over time.
TRUTH: Unlike the common bathtub, a Jacuzzi® hot tub’s shell is impervious to bacteria and footprint stains, meaning it’s easy to keep clean.
MYTH: The lengthy process of heating the water means it won’t be ready when I want it to be.
TRUTH: With the right settings configured, your hot tub stays heated 24/7, meaning it’s ready to go whenever you need to take a dip.
MYTH: It’s going to be a complicated back yard chemistry experiment to keep it clean.
TRUTH: Weekly maintenance simply requires using a cap’s worth of the Jacuzzi® ProClear Sanitizer in conjunction with the built-in CLEARRAY® system, which instantly disinfects 99.9% of all contaminants.
MYTH: I’ll have to drain the water frequently.
TRUTH: Water changes are only recommended every 3-4 months. In fact, you don’t even have to let the water go to waste when it’s time to change it — our CLEARRAY® treated water is safe to use on gardens, lawns and potted plants.
MYTH: Filter changes will be difficult, expensive and messy.
TRUTH: Even if your hot tub doesn’t feature the Smart Control screen that tells you when the filter needs to be a changed, a simple check each week will do the trick and lengthen the life of the filter.
MYTH: I won’t use my hot tub enough to get my money’s worth when it comes to monthly maintenance and energy costs.
TRUTH: As a new owner, you’ll quickly see firsthand how your hot tub becomes part of your family's daily routine, providing valuable relaxation time and a long list of health benefits for even just 10 minutes a day.
