How To Drain and Refill Your Hot Tub

How To Drain and Refill Your Hot Tub
December 08/2015

Maintaining clean and healthy water in your hot tub takes regular maintenance. This not only includes consistent water care and a treatment plan, but it also requires you to drain and refill your hot tub every 3 months, at a minimum.

So, how exactly does one change their hot tub water? Well, it’s not as difficult as it might seem – especially to those who are new hot tub owners. Simply follow these easy steps:

  1. Turn off and unplug your hot tub at the electrical outlet.
  2. Find the drain valve and attach a garden hose. If your spa does not have a drain valve or drains very slowly, you can use a QuickDrain syphoning tool available at participating IPG member stores.
  3. Let the hot tub empty of water and remove the hose.
  4. Refill the garden hose through both filter buckets. Plug in your hot tub and turn the power back on, running the jets. The clean, fresh water will run through the system, refilling your hot tub.
  5. Remember to supervise the filling of the hot tub so it doesn’t overflow.
  6. Keeping your hot tub and its water clean and healthy takes some regular maintenance and TLC. Take the time to look after your hot tub and you will enjoy the benefits for years to come.
