Where do I start? So you got yourself a new portable spa. You love the way it looks. You feel so relaxed lounging in the comfortable seats.

What should you add to the spa water each week? How do you keep it clean? How do you care for the cover?
Well, it doesn’t have to be a headache. Caring for your spa does not have to be a problem, as long as you follow some simple instructions and if you have the right chemicals and accessories at hand. Here on our Web Site, you will be able to find all the information you should learn about your spa, and get all the products you will need. Check into our Spa Maintenance made Easy post for a simple maintenance schedule. You should refer to this whenever you have to add chemicals to your spa or drain and refill it. There you will find many helpful tips about caring for your spa.
Next, you will have to get all the right chemicals, cleaning products and accessories that are necessary to keep your hot tub spa in tip top shape.

We suggest browsing through the various spa product sections to see what is available. Below, we will give you some lists of things that you should have on hand for the proper care and maintenance of your spa click on the links to see where to purchase these necessary items.

Additionally making a service appointment for an annual “well-check” on your spa works much the same way. Prevention goes a long way in prolonging the life and health of a spa. A certified hot tub technician is trained to ensure all is working as it should be. The first thing a field technician will help with is the deep cleaning of your spa. Over time, biofilm buildup can accumulate in the hot tub’s plumbing despite regular use of sanitizers. The technician will be equipped with the tools needed to completely remove this tougher layer of buildup that can contain viruses or bacteria and, of course, affect the Spas water balance. We’ve all heard that phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This applies just as well to spa ownership. Simple maintenance practices come at minimal expense. The bottom line is that your long-term sense of relief, escape, and connection is well worth it.
