Are you a new owner of an inflatable hot tub? Here are our best tips for caring for your new spa.

An inflatable spa is an affordable way to add a touch of luxury to your patio or garden. To keep your easy access to relaxation just a stone's throw away, you'll need to know how to care for it and keep it running in top condition.

Keeping your inflatable hot tub running is actually very simple! A consistent cleaning routine, regular chemical treatment, and knowing the warning signs will keep your spa healthy for years to come. We'll introduce you to our favorite tips to keep your inflatable hot tub running efficiently and healthily.

1. Leave it running!

It may be surprising to hear this, but turning off your inflatable spa frequently is not the most efficient. If you want to use your inflatable hot tub regularly, say more than three times a week, the most economical and effective way is to keep the spa heater running. You will find that it is much more beneficial for your electricity bill to maintain a certain temperature than to heat from scratch with each use.

If you plan to use your inflatable hot tub less frequently, we suggest keeping your spa on standby mode. The Smart Filtration system will operate automatically every few hours to keep the water clean, while the antifreeze system will automatically activate to heat the water to 3°C when the water temperature drops below 1°C. All other functions will remain disabled.

If you plan to leave your inflatable hot tub for more than 2 weeks, it is best to drain and deflate your hot tub and store it properly for next time.

2. Keep warm

Let's not forget, the heat is rising! It is important to keep the inflatable spa covered as soon as you are done using it to retain heat. Make sure you create a good seal so there is no chance of heat escaping. For extra insulation, consider adding an inflatable bladder to your inflatable hot tub. While we have our spa covered, it is also important to prevent heat transfer through the floor. When you place your cozy and warm inflatable spa on the cool ground, the heat will transfer from your spa to the ground and cool the water quickly. The use of our heat preservation mat or heat preservation foam mats under your inflatable hot tub will help keep the heat in your tub while adding an extra layer of protection for your spa.

Finally, it blocks the wind. The wind blowing over your inflatable hot tub not only cools the surface, but also evaporates the water. To avoid frequent refills and reheating, consider placing the tub near higher items or screens to keep out the wind. As an added bonus, you'll also get some privacy.

3. Keep it clean

Treat your water regularly with chemicals to eliminate harmful bacteria. We recommend a complete cleaning once a week. The most common options for keeping water clean are chlorine and bromine. To be more cost effective, you can often purchase the chemicals needed for inflatable spa maintenance in a package at your local pool and spa store. Check your pH balance periodically with our 3-in-1 water test strips .

Aside from chemicals, one of the best tips that is often forgotten is to always shower before entering your inflatable spa. Your spa should be a peaceful place to relax, not a place to soak in the muck of the rest of the day. Before you or your guests enter the inflatable hot tub, take a quick shower to remove oils, lotions, and dirt from your skin. These substances are often the unknown culprits of cloudy water and stains in your spa.

4. Change your filter regularly

A healthy filter keeps dirt out of your spa. Filter cartridges also keep pumps in good condition and free of debris that could clog or damage them. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to check the pump and filters regularly.

Clean your filters after each use, or at least every other day it is in operation. A quick wash will keep them in good working condition. Every few weeks, or longer if you use your inflatable spa less frequently, you'll want to check the quality of your filter and change it for a new one if necessary.

5. Control your water

Monitor your water for signs that it needs to be changed. Frequent water changes can put a strain on your utility bill, while not changing the water often enough can lead to dirt and chemical buildup or other problems. Here are some quick warning signs and what they mean:

Discolored water: It may have too many chemicals. Thoroughly clean the inflatable hot tub and then remove the water to achieve proper pH balance.

Sparkling water: Check your filter! It may require a simple change or you can add some defoaming treatments. Also make sure your guests haven't accidentally brought soap or shampoo.

Strange Smell: Drain and clean your inflatable spa completely. Your spa water should have no strange odors when treated with chemicals and a proper filter.

And this is how you do it! These quick tips for caring for your inflatable spa will ensure that you can continue to enjoy relaxation at home for many years to come. Do you need more help? We have a great FAQ page for less common problems you may encounter.
