Weekly Hot Tub Maintenance

Many maintenance tasks can be grouped together into a weekly schedule, but you may need to adjust this based on your equipment and usage frequency. On a weekly basis make sure you:

  • Check pH levels
  • Add sanitizer
  • Rinse the filter
  • Wipe down above the water line
  • Wipe down the cover
Quarterly Hot Tub Maintenance

The remaining hot tub maintenance tasks can be grouped together into a quarterly cadence, but again, you may need to adjust this based on your equipment and usage frequency. Every 3 months make sure you:

  • Flush the lines with a chemical flusher
  • Disconnect the power
  • Drain the tub
  • Soak the filter in a chemical cleaner and rinse
  • Clean all surfaces
  • Refill the tub
  • Balance the pH levels
  • Add sanitizer (bromine or chlorine for non-saltwater soakers)
Weekly Pool Maintenance

Many swimming pool maintenance tasks can be grouped together into a weekly schedule, just adjust this list based on your equipment and usage frequency. On a weekly basis make sure you:

  • Skim the surface
  • Brush the walls
  • Vacuum the bottom
  • Clean the skimmer trap
  • Test and add chemicals
Quarterly Pool Maintenance

The other pool maintenance tasks can be grouped together into a quarterly block. You might need to adjust this schedule based on your equipment and usage frequency. Every quarter:

  • Shock the pool
