Hot Tub Maintenance, Made Easy!

A lot of people have a misunderstanding about how easy it is to maintain a hot tub. Hopefully this page will make your life a lot easier!

Jacuzzi has a proprietary system called ClearRay. These systems allow you to use virtually no chlorine. It also allows you to go much longer in between water changes.

Please follow the directions below based on whether or not you have the ClearRay system.

If you have any other questions about maintaining your hot tub, please give us a call at:

We ordered a replacement cover for our Jacuzzi hot tub. We did everything over the phone and internet. The technician came replaced the cover was very pleasant. And everything went smoothly. We purchased our Jacuzzi hot from the Hot tub factory nine years ago and have never had an issue. Replacing the cover was the first time we had service. We love our hot tub.

We just got done buying our new beautiful tub! We dealt with David. I normally don't post reviews, but felt he went the extra mile to make us have a great experience. Not sleazy salesman type, nice guy, spoke intelligently and easy to understand. No fluff, no nonsense. Really appreciated the approach. Would highly recommend anyone looking for high quality tub to go to this location and deal with David!

My family and I came in looking for a hot tub, and David assisted us and was great from start to finish! He was personable, transparent, thorough, and helped us to find the right tub that fit our needs. Would definitely refer him and the Hot Tub Factory to anyone looking for a good quality hot tub :)
