How to drain and clean a heated inflatable pool

Even the most fun things need to be taken care of properly if you want them to last, and we are sure that an inflatable pool is one of the last things you’ll want to be throwing into the bin because it wasn’t well-kept. The key to making your heated inflatable pool, small hot tub or outdoor hot tub last is proper maintenance. Sometimes draining and cleaning can seem complicated and time consuming. But if you follow these helpful tips, you can get the job done quickly and easily.

The best approach depends on the type of inflatable pool or hot tub you own. For pools of larger sizes, your best bet is to purchase chemical products that will prevent bacteria from entering and infecting the water. When you go to your local pool shop, you should look for chlorine to treat your pool. If you don’t want to deal with this on a daily basis, a simple chlorine floater will do the trick. Just pop one in your pool; it lets out small quantities of chlorine to keep the pool clean and you won’t have to worry about it harming your children while they swim.

For smaller hot tubs remember to use less chlorine as there isn’t as much water in the tub and too much chlorine can make the water unpleasant. Last but not least, for outdoor hot tubs, such as the Lay-z Spa, just disconnect the pump, replace it with your garden hose, and turn it on. This will allow fresh water to circulate, and then proceed to drain the tub.

We also recommend following the instruction manual carefully in order to properly use the filtration system: regular filtration is a key factor for cleaning and maintenance as it ensures that the chlorine is effective and that water remains clear and crystalline.

We also recommend changing the filter cartridges regularly, as indicated in the instruction manual. Cartridges and sand filtration systems need the appropriate maintenance to reach the best results.

And there you have it. Once you get the hang of it, cleaning and draining it won’t seem as hard a task as you imagined. Just be sure to choose your products wisely, and you’ll be able to enjoy your inflatable pool or hot tub for many seasons to come!
