Hot Tub Buying Guide


Clean hot tub jets

It is recommended that you remove and clean your hot tub jets at least once a year to keep them clean and moving freely. This helps your tub run at its best. Now to clean them well you will need to remove them. Be sure to follow your manufacturer's instructions for this as different tubs have different jets and are removed in different ways. You do not want to void any warranty with careless actions or impatience. Take a moment and read. Also, you may want to ask your local dealer for any helpful tips. There may be a "trick" to yours that will save you some frustration.

Remember your jets are getting exposed to the santizier as the water runs through them, so this cleaning that requires the removal of the jets is just for that deep yearly clean and to remove debris that has been caught inside and behind the jet.

You will want to lower the water level to below the jets before removing them or empty the tub completely.

To remove the jets, grasp it between your fingers and turn counterclockwise to the left. You will need to turn firmly, then when you meet resistance give a little extra umph and click the jet will unlock and you can remove it. If you have trouble getting a good grip, put on a gardening or kitchen glove or use that jar gripper that lives in the kitchen utility drawer.

Once your jets are out, you will need to clean them and their space. Using water and a cloth, sponge or even an old toothbrush clean the jet of the debris and any gunk that has accumulated. You can spray them with a hose to rinse away any residue or debris. Also, be sure to clean the jet socket that is now empty. You can simply wipe that out or using water give it a good rinse. You should be able to clear away any dirt and debris fairly easily.

Once the jets and area are clean, replace the jets. Check your manufacturer's instructions for guidelines on how to put the jets back into the hot tub. Simply reverse what you did to get them out. Place the jet in the socket lining up the threads and turn clockwise "righty tighty" until the jet locks into place.

Fill your hot tub back up to the recommended level and check your pH and chlorine. Add what you need to so that your hot tub is ready for your next soak. Happy soaking!
