Once you place your Cal Spas Hot Tub in your backyard oasis it is up to you to maintain the spa to keep it in great condition. Here are the steps to show you how to properly maintain your spa with ease.
Keep Your Spa Covered Daily
Keep Your Spa Covered- Keep your hot tub cover on after each use. Covered spas will use less electricity in maintaining your set temperature. Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. You are required to keep the spa covered to maintain warranty coverage. Covering your spa helps prevent children from drowning.
See the manual enclosed with your cover for instructions on mounting the locks and how to lock and unlock the cover.
In addition, while the spa cover is rigid, it is not designed to support any weight. Therefore, as a safety precaution and to preserve the life of your cover, you must not sit, stand, or lie on it, nor should you place objects of any kind on top of it
Check the water temperature and adjust as necessary If you notice extreme changes in the temperature, it could indicate a system issue.
Check for damage to the cover and spa – Staying aware of your spa is key to keeping your spa in great condition.
Weekly and before each use
Test the Spa Water – You can use Reagent Test Kits, which is a method that provides a high level of accuracy. It is available in Liquid form or Tablet form. Another option is Test Strips, which is convenient and common for spa holders. You want to balance the total alkalinity, calcium hardness, and the pH.
Keep the spa clean by wiping down any debris you want to keep clear of anything that will cause contamination
Every 2 4 months
Change water – If you use your spa often, change the spa water every two months. If you occasionally use your spa water, change it every 4 months.
Once a year
Replace your filter – We recommend you replace your filter about once a year, depending on your spa usage and bather load. Before you place a new filter in your spa, make sure you remove the plastic wrapper. Soak the filter a minimum of 24 hours before you insert it in the filter well.
Never use a filter too small for your spa’s water capacity!

Clean your Hot Tub Cabinet Keep your panels wiped down and clean for the outdoors. Check for cosmetic or structural damage in case you need to maintain the panels.
