The spa is cleaned based on bather load, usually two times per week. The spa opens weekday mornings at 6:10 am except Wednesdays when it opens at 7:10 am. This time is used for scheduled maintenance which includes cleaning the spa tiles, backwashing the filter and at times, draining the spa. In addition to cleaning, it takes some time for the spa to heat back up to 103 degrees. We schedule one day per week (Wednesdays), but clean it based on bather load which may result in the spa being down periodically for your health and safety.
