  • Fill again with clean water
  • Run the jets for another 10 minutes
  • Drain

Deep Cleaning Tips

Do a deep cleaning about 4 times a year, or once per season. This extra step will make sure to keep your tub feeling like new. 

  • Take the same steps as above
  • But add ½ cup bleach to the soap
  • Run the jets for 15 minutes
  • Let it soak for 5 minutes
  • Run the jets for another 15 minutes
