How to set-up your CleverSpa Hot Tub

You must always test the Chlorine levels daily in your spa water with CleverSpa Test Strips, and adjust accordingly using CleverSpa Stabilised Chlorine Granules. This the most popular way to keep your hot tub water healthy to maintain the correct daily chlorine levels, follow the below steps:

1. Pre-dissolve the required amount of granules in a clean plastic bucket filled with warm water. Stir the solution until the granules are fully dissolved.
2. Ensure that your CleverSpa circulation pump is turned on before slowly pouring the solution directly onto the water surface.
3. Continue to run the circulation pump for 15 mins.
4. Re-test your water and repeat dosage until the Chlorine reading is between 3ppm and 5ppm.

PH Levels – Minus & Plus

Maintaining the correct pH in your water is essential for your Hot Tubs Chemical Maintenance as failure to do so can result in user discomfort and damage to your Inflatable Hot Tub or Outdoor Pool. The most ideal pH level is between 7.2 to 7.6 and the level should be tested at least two times a week, and always before use.

If the pH level of the spa water is less than 7.2 add the CleverSpa pH Increaser.

CleverSpa Hot Tub Filters

It is essential that you change your filter to extend the life in your CleverSpa hot tub. For optimum performance, the filter needs to be rinsed with clean water AFTER EVERY USE to remove any small particles and residue. The filter is one of the most important elements to ensure your CleverSpa hot tub works effectively.

Replace your old filter with a new one if:
1) The filter remains soiled after cleaning
2) Holes are visible in the paper
3) The paper is noticeably worn.

The frequency of use and condition of your filter will determine how often your filter needs changing, click here for more information for Filter Cleaning Tips.


Removing & Preventing Foam

We recommend using CleverSpa Hot Tub Foam Remover to avoid build up of foam.

If you allow foaming to build up in your hot tub water (caused by soaps, cosmetics and other contaminants) you should remove the foam using CleverSpa Foam Remover. Never allow your spa water to foam excessively, and remove it using the following instructions:

1. Shake plastic canister before using.
2. Turn your hot tub circulation pump on and pour the correct dosage directly into the surface of your water.
3. Allow 15 minutes, and if the foam has not completely been removed repeat the same steps.
4. Do not use your spa for 15 to 20 minutes.


Hard Water / Limescale

60% of homes within the UK have hard water, which can result in limescale creating a blockage causing the pump & heater to overheat & fail, reducing the life of your hot tub. If you live an area with hard water, please ensure that you use the CleverSpa® Descaler weekly to avoid limescale build up.
