In many cases, “winging it” can work with spa and hot tub maintenance because of the small size of the spa or hot tub, and if you mess up, it’s kind of easy to just drain it and start from scratch, although that is a waste of water, time, and money!
There’s actually just one secret to maintaining your hot tub and spa and that is the water! With cleaner water, everything else just falls into place! And the secret to cleaner water starts with water chemistry.
Yes, winging it can work, but if we want clear and repeatable results that we can expect, then following a simple spa maintenance regimen is the best way to go about it.
