The following are not “requirements”, but rather recommendations for achieving even more fabulous results with Spa Marvel while at the same time reducing hot tub maintenance and care.


Shower First: Showering will reduce the introduction of dirt, oils, hair products, deodorants, makeup, perfume etc. to the spa. Four people in a spa are the equivalent to 400 people in a pool.

Keep the Air On: Spa Marvel works better with air in the water. Leave the air intakes “open” between uses to maximize Spa Marvel’s effects. It is better if you can point the jets upwards to increase water agitation when you are not in the spa.

Clean Your Filters: The Spa Marvel system relies heavily on filtration. Regular and proper cleaning of the spa’s filters using a product such as Spa Marvel Filter Cleaner are pivotal to the success of using Spa Marvel.

Maintain Water Level: Water should be at least 7 ½ centimetres (3 inches) above filter intake. Low water levels will lead to cloudy water.

Avoid Detergents: Bathing suits and clothing will retain detergent left over from laundering. This detergent will dissolve in the water and create foam. To prevent this, wash bathing attire in water without any detergent to ensure it is free of detergent. Alternatively, don’t wear any clothing into the spa.

Increase Circulation: Too little circulation may lead to water quality issues.

Shock Monthly: Shock your tub water monthly with a non-chlorine shock (potassium monopersulphate).

In the washing machine. A couple of capfuls of Spa Marvel will help to clean clothes, and it will also descale buildup in the components of your washer. You will find that your washer runs quieter after a few washes with Spa Marvel.


Spa Marvel Cleanser

For cleaning the plumbing of jetted bath tubs. Use 2 capfuls initially and then 1 capful once a month for maintenance. The Cleanser can be added to bath water before it is drained.

For cleaning dishwashers and washing machines. Add 2 capfuls and run the machines without dishes or clothes. You should notice quieter pumps. Any foaming you experience is from built up detergent residues that are being removed, it is not caused by the Cleanser.
