Here at APi, we have a strong commitment to charitable giving, especially for a cause that hits so close to home, both geographically and topically. The APi family wants your pool to be a fun place for the whole family to enjoy, but safety must always come first. The Live Like Jake Foundation puts a spotlight on the importance of swim safety and drowning prevention by providing community awareness around the benefits of Infant Swim Rescue (ISR). ISR is an amazing resource for those with young children who are looking to teach their children the necessary skills to protect themselves around the water.

Your hot tub is a place of relaxation where you can forget about the cares of the world. If you’re using APi products to maintain your spa, you have even more time to enjoy it. But how often are you changing the water in your hot tub? Is it enough, too much, or have you just flat out never done it? In this article, we will discuss some ways to determine how often you need to drain and refill your hot tub.
The process of changing the water in your hot tub is quite simple as the formula to determine how often you need to change it. Many people believe that the frequency for changing the water in your hot tub is most directly related to the frequency of usage. While it is true that if you use your hot tub less, you should change the water less, this is not the end of the discussion. It does play a part in determining how often you change the water, but there is another important formula to consider.
The general rule of thumb when it comes to calculating how often to change the water in your hot tub is to divide the total number of gallons of your hot tub by 3, and then divide it again by the number of daily users. This formula will give you an approximation of the number of days that you can go between changing the water in your hot tub. For example, if you have a 480-gallon hot tub and have 3 average daily users, you should be changing the water in your hot tub approximately every 53 days.
This formula is not a hard and fast, set in stone rule when it comes to changing your hot tub water. There are some other things that you should look out for to keep your spa in optimal operating order throughout the year. If you notice that the water in your spa is cloudy and shocking it doesn’t seem to clear it, it’s time to drain and refill. If you are developing a lot of foam and the defoamer isn’t having an effect, it is also likely time to change the water. The most noticeable sign that it is time to change the water in your hot tub is if the water begins to smell. A foul smell is a sure sign that you are overdue for changing out the water.
We hope that these guidelines help you to keep your hot tub clean, clear, and inviting all year. Another great way to do that is by using the EZ Spa Care Kit line of products to maintain your hot tub. You can learn more about how these products can save you time and money here.
Here at APi Water, we know the importance of giving back to those who are less fortunate. Throughout the year, we work with several different charity organizations, but all year long we work to support the amazing work that ChildFund International does for those in need. ChildFund International works to help deprived, excluded and vulnerable children have the capacity to improve their lives and the opportunity to become young adults, parents, and leaders who bring lasting and positive change in their communities. They also strive to promote societies whose individuals and institutions participate in valuing, protecting and advancing the worth and rights of children and enrich supporters’ lives through their support of our cause.
