Cleaning of water jets
To begin with, let’s talk a little bit more about how you can do the cleaning of the water jets of your hot tub using household products that you certainly have at home.
Had not you even noticed that the bathtub was dirty and filled it up anyway? Do not freak out! This water can be used just for cleaning. If it has been emptied, refill it so that the water is 10 centimetres above the top of the bath.
Once this is done, make sure that the air inlet valve is turned off, as contrary to what many people think, air induction does not help to optimize the cleaning process. Pay attention if your bathtub already has cleaning instructions, as following them helps to clean the hot tub more effectively, and also to avoid damages.
With the submerged jets higher, add neutral detergent to the water (two tablespoons) and turn the jets on again for 15 to 20 minutes. To prevent the foam from becoming soiled throughout the bathroom, use kitchen detergent for this process.
After time, remove all the water from the bath and then refill it, but this time with cold water. To make sure the soap residue left in the pipes is completely removed, turn on the jets and leave them on for 15 or 20 minutes. Drain the tub again at the end of the process. This is a great way to make sure your whirlpool is clean and ready for use whenever you want.
