How Often Should I Change the Water in My Hot Tub?

You won’t find too many people that aren’t having a good time relaxing in a hot tub. Once the soothing, warm and bubbly water hit you, there is no place you’d rather be. However, if you don’t keep up with the maintenance, your favorite place to relax will become a hot tub full of dirty water that you’ll have to replace.

Changing the water in your hot tub is important because it helps maintain the chemical balance and the cleanliness of the water. Let’s go through everything you need to know for when it’s time to change it and how to exactly change out the water, so you won’t miss a day taking advantage of your amazing hot tub.

When should I change the water?

Changing your water is all about how many times you use it and how many people are in it. Under normal usage, it’s recommended to change the water every 6-8 weeks. With that said, the more you use your hot tub and the more people that are in there, the more contaminants enter the water and the more frequent you’ll have to change the water. If you use it less, the longer your water can go but in the end, it will need to get changed.

Time to do a little math

I know what you’re thinking, math scares us too, but trust us, it’s a simple calculation to determine how many days you should go before draining your tub and changing out the water. First, you need to take how many gallons of water your hot tub holds and divide it by three. Then you take that number and divide it by the number of people that are typically using the hot tub. That final number will be approximately how many days you should go before changing the water.

For example, your hot tub holds 300 gallons and has four people who use it. 300/4 = 75. Divide 75/3 and you get 25. This means you should change your water every 25 days.

Signs it’s time to change your hot tub water

Now that you know how often you should change the water in your hot tub, let’s talk about the warning signs that it’s time to actually change the water

  • Smelly water – If you go and open up your hot tub and it doesn’t have a fresh water smell, this is a clear sign it’s time to drain and replace.
  • Cloudy waterIf you notice cloudy hot tub water and any type of cleaning just won’t clear it up, it’s telling you it’s time to change out the water.
  • Foamy waterIf the water seems to be foaming up and you can’t get it to go away, well, it’s time you get rid of the old water and replace it with fresh water.
  • Weak Water FlowIf the flow of the water around the tub isn’t as strong as before, it’s time to change the water.
