The frequency at which you should drain and refill your spa depends on several factors, including how frequently the spa is used, the number of users, and the water chemistry. As a general guideline, it’s recommended to drain and refill your spa every three to four months.
The process of draining and refilling your spa typically involves the following steps:
Turn off the power: Before you begin, make sure to turn off the power to the spa to avoid any electrical hazards.
Drain the spa: Use a submersible pump or gravity to drain the water out of the spa. You can also use a hose to siphon the water out.
Clean the spa: Once the spa is drained, use a mild cleanser and a soft brush to clean the interior of the spa, including the shell, jets, and filter.
Refill the spa: Fill the spa with fresh water, making sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct water level.
Test the water: Once the spa is filled, test the water using a water testing kit to ensure that the pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels are balanced.
Add chemicals: Based on the water test results, add the necessary chemicals to balance the water chemistry.
Turn on the power: Once the chemicals have been added and the water chemistry is balanced, turn on the power to the spa and let it circulate for several hours before using it.
Additionally, be sure to follow all safety guidelines and manufacturer’s instructions to avoid any damage to your spa.
