Maintaining a swim spa doesn't have to be daunting

Maintaining a swim spa doesn't have to be daunting. With some regular attention and the right tools, you can keep your swim spa clean, clear, and ready for use. Here's your complete guide to swim spa maintenance.

**1. Regular Cleaning**

At least once a week, clean the surface of your swim spa to keep it free from dirt and grime. Wipe down the waterline with a non-abrasive cleaner to prevent buildup. Remember to clean your swim spa cover too, as it can accumulate dirt that could end up in the water.

**2. Water Testing and Balancing**

Test the water in your swim spa at least once a week to ensure that it’s balanced. This involves checking the pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer levels. A pH of 7.2 to 7.8 is ideal, while total alkalinity should be between 80-120 ppm. For sanitizer, follow the manufacturer's instructions.

**3. Changing the Water**

Over time, the water in your swim spa will become saturated with dissolved solids that make balancing difficult. As a rule of thumb, you should change the water every three to four months.

**4. Filter Care**

Clean your filter regularly, as a dirty filter can decrease the efficiency of your swim spa and put strain on the pumps. Rinse it with water every two weeks and deep clean with a suitable cleaner every two months.

**5. Checking the Equipment**

Inspect your swim spa's equipment on a regular basis to ensure everything is running smoothly. This includes checking the pumps, heater, and control system.

**6. Use of Spa Products**

Use specially designed spa products to keep your swim spa in good condition. This includes water balancing products, sanitizers, and protectants for your cover and shell.
