Helpful maintenance tips

Our spa pools were designed for easy maintenance, letting you spend more time enjoying your spa.

It is important to have clean, sanitised water. Water balance and maintenance are probably the most important areas of your spa pool that must be monitored regularly.

Water Maintenance

Drain 1/3 of your spa water and refill about every 3 to 4 months as long as water quality, cleanliness and clarity are being maintained. It is advisable to completely drain your spa pool every 6 to 12 months.


Filtration is managed by your control system and, once set, will give you the required filtration needed to keep your spa water at optimum cleanliness levels. It is essential that filter cartridges are cleaned regularly as follows:

It is recommended that you clean your spa filter cartridges every two weeks (more often when bather load is heavy).

Use a garden hose and apply the water stream at a 45 degree downward angle. Ensure all debris and foreign matter is dislodged by spraying in between each pleat in the filters.

At least every 3 to 4 months and with EVERY water change, your cartridge filters should be pre-rinsed with the garden hose and then, following instructions, be soaked overnight in a commercial cleaning agent. 

It is recommended that you have a spare set of filters available, when you are soaking the used filters, so you will never have to wait to use your spa and the filters will last longer. If you are using a filter rotation system, allow filters to dry, ready for immediate swap over next maintenance program. It is recommended that your filter cartridges be replaced every 18-24 months.


Sanitisation is essential in health and well being of all bathers in your spa. It is your responsibility to regularly monitor and maintain satisfactory levels. The sanitiser will chemically control bacteria and viruses present in the water or those introduced during use of the spa. Several conventional sanitisation chemicals ad non chemical methods are available. 

Chemical Balance

Chemical Balance and pH control is essential for the overall balance of your water. Correct balance determines the effectiveness of your sanitiser to work at its maximum efficiency, minimises scale build up and corrosion of metals, and extends the general life of your spa. Regular testing and dosing is essential. 

It is important that you make specific times to give your spa pool the ‘once over’, probably every 3-4months.

The following is a guideline that you might like to follow:

  • Disconnect the power source.
  • Drain all the water from the spa.
  • Remove any dirt or sand that may be in the spa. Inspect the acrylic surface.
  • Treat and stain the cabinet (if required).
  • Clean your hardcover and treat with the recommended product
  • Remove and clean your headrests.
  • Remove and clean all jets
