We have selected 3 of our favourite garden renovations, which include some great concepts to restyle your garden providing a relaxation location for your CleverSpa Hot Tub!

Outdoor gardens can provide a calming oasis where you can relax and recuperate which can increase your positive mental wellbeing. Apart from appealing aesthetics, there are plenty of reasons to look for garden renovation ideas to suit your individual needs!

Tracey has transformed her outdoor space by installing a wooden pergola, which acts as a contemporary outdoor feature, which, when teamed with contemporary slatted fence panels, creates privacy around her CleverSpa Cannes Hot Tub.  She has added matching outdoor rattan furniture, which compliments the grey colour of the Cannes Hot Tub – creating the perfect space to eat and entertain.

Tracey has styled her garden using LED lighting along the length of the pergola, which not only sets the mood, but provides stunning ambient lighting. Continuing the rattan look, Tracey has positioned a rattan plant pot on the table next to the furniture & a stunning ceramic pot to create a stylish outdoor summer look.  Bringing the indoors out, Tracey has used a matching grey blanket to create a cosy, welcoming outdoor space, accompanied by a stylish garden rug which helps finish off this stunning outdoor living space.

Laura has transformed her out door space with an outdoor bespoke all wood theme shelter featuring a solid roof. The stylish structure houses the 6 person CleverSpa Maevea Hot Tub and ensures that it has the necessary protection from direct sunlight and wind, as well as providing privacy from any nosy neighbours! The LED Globe Lights on the roof of the structure provide a stylish, cosy ambience to ensure that the Hot Tub can be enjoyed all year round.

The artificial wall feature breaks up the solid wood colour and brings a touch of greenery to the overall setting.  The maintenance-free feature offers a more natural appearance, to blend in with the surroundings transforming the space. Wall mounted hooks at the back of the shelter are perfect for hanging robes and towels so when you’re finished in the hot tub you get too cold!

For those not wanting to partake in hot tubbing, there’s the opportunity to have a drink at the bar, sitting on the coordinating high stools to ensure that none of the conversation is missed! Laura’s outdoor lantern features a natural design with blends perfectly with the rattan hot tub print.  The lantern features a large outdoor candle which finishes off this cosy outdoor space.

With the driest Spring for nearly 50 years and this July being the driest on record, drought warnings are on the way. It’s important, therefore, that we all do our bit by protecting the water we have and prolonging the life of the water used in our hot tubs. Regular maintenance allows water to be kept clean and healthy for up to 3 months, keeping water usage down to a minimum, playing a key role in conserving water.


Shower before using your hot tub. This is important as water will wash off any natural body oils & dead skin as well as removing any products such as deodorant, makeup, cream. Washing before using your hot tub will ensure you maintain the quality of the water which will make your hot tub water last much longer. 


All hot tubs require chemicals to kill bacteria, viruses and keep algae levels down.  To keep the water in your hot tub clean & clear, maintain the water pH levels between 7.2 to 7.8. Check your water using a test strip and add pH Decreaser or increaser according to the result. Test the Alkalinity of the water once a week and adjust accordingly.  There are some helpful instructions in the support section of the CleverSpa website HERE


When your inflatable hot tub is not in use, it is important to clip-on your hot tub cover. This is a simple yet vital way to protect the quality of the water and ensure no debris enters the hot tub water.  The additional lock provided will also keep children safe from entering the hot tub. The clip-on cover will prevent water evaporating and cooling, thus retaining as much heat as possible in your hot tub.  Our CleverSpa thermal covers add an extra layer of thermal insulation making your hot tub 50% more energy efficient too!

Depending on the location of your hot tub, stepping outside may bring grass, small stones, and other debris into your hot tub. Ensure you remove or wash off any bits on your feet, before entering the hot tub, to protect the liner and avoid it being damaged or punctured.  Washing feet will also maintain the cleanliness of your water.  


When it is hot outside, another way to reduce water evaporation is to reduce the temperature of your hot tub water, which can be a more pleasant experience in the heat of the summer sun and will also significantly reduce your hot tub running costs!


Remove leaves & debris from the surface of the water to avoid these clogging up the hot tub filter.  The CleverSpa hot tub cleaning kit includes a net which is perfect for this.  Hot tub filter cartridges keep your hot tub safe from contaminants, keeping your water clean and hygienic. CleverSpa Filter Cartridges remove any debris, dirt, or bacteria, which will decrease the possibility of it harbouring harmful elements that could cause damage to your health and your hot tub.   Remove the filter after you have used your hot tub and rinse under a tap to remove any small particles and residue.  If the filter remains dirty after cleaning or holes are visible, it’s time to use a new filter.  See more Filter Cleaning Tips HERE.

The Hot Tub Filter Sock is another essential part of the upkeep and maintenance of your hot tub as it will attract oils, lotions, and trap debris.  The socks are washable and reusable and a vital part in prolonging the life of your hot tub filter & the quality of your water.


Cleaning hot tub walls regularly will help avoid cloudy water, algae bloom and white water mould. Wipe down with hot soapy water using a clean cloth or sponge then rinse off with clean water.


With drought warnings on the way, instead of emptying your hot tub water into a drain,  why not reuse it?  It isn’t suitable for drinking, but it can be used to water non-edible plants.

To do this, allow the chlorine to dissipate first.  Simply test the pH levels & chlorine levels.  Chlorine should be at zero and the pH levels should be 7 & 8.

As well as watering the garden, hot tub water can be recycled by using it to wash garden furniture, outdoor equipment, to wash waste bins as well as being used to flush toilets.

So, relax. If you’re shopping for a hot tub and concerned about your water and energy use, CleverSpa have everything you need to be ecologically responsible.
