Keeping your hot tub or swim spa clean is an important task, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be difficult one. With a self-cleaning spa, hassle-free maintenance is possible. Below, we’ll explore how self-cleaning spas
work and why they are such a great option for busy homeowners. Here’s what you should know!
Understanding the Self-Cleaning Feature
If you want your hot tub or swim spa to perform at its best for many years, it’s important that you clean and maintain it regularly. You need to check the pH levels, replace the filters, change the water, and more. Unfortunately, not everyone has the time or energy. That’s where self-cleaning spas come in! They make it possible for you to spend less time on maintenance tasks and spend more time enjoying your hot tub or swim spa to the fullest. It’s important to note, though, that ‘self-cleaning’ doesn’t mean zero maintenance. You still need to handle occasional tasks, but you won’t have to clean your hot tub or swim spa as often. Tasks like changing out water and cleaning the filters also become much easier.
Better Filtration Means Superior Cleaning
Even though all spas come with basic filtration systems, not all models can provide the same level of cleanliness. Self-cleaning spas come with advanced filtration systems that make them stand out. Instead of just circulating water and pushing out debris, they have filtration features that go beyond the basics. For example, Hydropool hot tubs and swim spas have advanced Hydroclean filtration jets. Because of their strategic placement, they are able to create a continuous flow of water that pushes floating debris toward the high-flow skimmer. The high-flow skimmer then moves debris, oils, and other substances into the pre-filter. This means that the filtration cycle has one step more than other spas in the market. The HydroClean Floor Vacuum takes care of any debris that might have settled at the bottom of the hot tub or swim spa. On top of that, clean water continuously re-enters the jets, as 100% of the water passes through pressurized filters every 15 minutes.

The Benefits You Can Get from a Self-Cleaning Spa
While a self-cleaning spa can make regular upkeep easy, you still need to manually take care of some maintenance tasks. This includes draining and refilling the water, replacing filters, monitoring the pH levels, and wiping down the surfaces. With that said, here are the benefits you can get from a self-cleaning spa:
- Less time needed for maintenance – Instead of having to change the water in your hot tub or swim spa every 4-6 weeks, you can wait up to 6 months. You can spend less time thinking about this maintenance task and more time enjoying your spa.
- Spend less on chemicals – Chemicals are important for keeping the water balanced. With the advanced filtration system of self-cleaning spas, the water balance is maintained for longer periods. This means that you don’t need to use as many chemicals.
- Lower energy and water costs – You can rack up savings on both energy and water bills because you won’t have to replace the hot tub or swim spa’s water as often.
- Fewer repairs needed – Since a self-cleaning spa remains well-maintained for longer, your hot tub or swim spa can stay in great shape for many years.
- Peace of mind – Knowing that the water in your spa is clean and safe can give you peace of mind. You don’t have to worry about the water quality in your spa, as it’s taken care of automatically.
- More time for enjoyment – Self-cleaning spas make it possible for you to spend less time on maintenance tasks and more opportunity to enjoy time spent with loved ones. This also means that you get to enjoy your spa to the fullest.
