The Biggest Hot Tub Maintenance Myths Debunked

If you think that hot tub maintenance requires just as much
work as a pool, spa shockthink 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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

 We weren’t lying — hot tub maintenance is that easy!
