A hot tub is an excellent addition to any home. They provide relaxation, stress relief, and a place for socialising. However, maintaining a pristine hot tub environment is essential to ensure a pleasant experience and extend the life of your Spa.

In this article, we will explore some effective ways to remove dirt and debris from your hot tub, ensuring it remains clean and inviting.

Regular Skimming

One of the simplest methods to remove debris from your hot tub is by using a skimmer net. This tool is designed to remove floating debris such as leaves, insects, and other unwanted particles.

Make it a habit to skim your hot tub before and after each use, or at least once a day, to keep the water surface clean and prevent debris from sinking to the bottom and causing potential issues.


For dirt and debris that has settled on the hot tub floor,  is the perfect solution. These vacuums come in various types, including manual, battery-operated, and water-powered models.

A spa vacuum is designed to suction debris from the hot tub floor and other hard-to-reach areas without damaging the surfaces. And regular vacuuming not only keeps your hot tub clean but also reduces the workload on your filtration system.

Filter Maintenance

Your hot tubs filter plays a vital role in maintaining your hot tub's water quality. But over time, the filter can become clogged with dirt, debris, and other contaminants.

Make sure you clean the filter cartridge regularly. And always follow the manufacturer's recommendations. This ensures optimal performance.

And most importantly, replace the filter cartridge when it reaches the end of its lifespan, usually every 12 to 18 months.

Have A Spare Set of Filters

Despite proper care, spa filters eventually wear out. Keep an extra filter cartridge on hand for a seamless replacement and uninterrupted hot tub enjoyment.

Remember, investing in your spa's maintenance now will save you time and money in the long run, while also contributing to a more relaxing and satisfying experience.

Using Tennis Balls to Absorb Impurities

A simple yet effective method to prevent body oils, hair products, lotions, and other substances from clogging your spa's filter is to place a few tennis balls in the skimmers or directly into the water. The tennis balls act as absorbent sponges, soaking up impurities and making it easier to maintain a clean and healthy spa environment. Replace them regularly for best results, especially if the tub is used often or by multiple people at once.

In addition to using tennis balls to absorb impurities, it is essential to establish a regular maintenance routine to keep your spa in optimal condition. This includes checking and adjusting the water chemistry, cleaning the filter cartridges, and periodically draining and refilling the spa.

Cover Your Hot Tub

Clean and inspect your hot tub cover regularly for signs of wear and replace it when necessary.

Proactive Measures Make the Difference

While it's impossible to prevent every speck of debris from entering your hot tub, you can minimise its presence with some simple precautions.

Ensure your spa is covered when not in use, and consider setting up a screen on windy days to deter leaves and other debris from blowing into the water. Inevitably, some debris will still make its way in, so conduct regular cleaning to maintain a pristine hot tub environment and maximize your enjoyment.


Effortlessly removing dirt and debris from your hot tub is achievable with the right tools, regular maintenance, and a proactive approach. By following these simple tips, you can keep your hot tub clean, inviting, and ready for a relaxing soak at any time. Happy hot-tubbing!
