  1. 1

    Fill your jacuzzi bathtub 2 to 3 inches above the jets with hot water.

  2. 2

    Use 1/2 cup bleach and 1/4 cup low-foaming dishwasher detergent. If your jacuzzi is exceptionally large, you may need to add more. You can use 1 cup vinegar for this step instead.

  3. 3

    Run the jets for 15 to 20 minutes to clean the jacuzzi pipes. When done, drain the water and rinse the tub of all bleach and detergent (or vinegar).

  4. 4

    Fill the jacuzzi 2 to 3 inches above the jets with cold water, and run the jets again for 15 to 20 minutes.

  5. 5

    Drain the water again and rinse. Once you refill and let the water warm, you're ready to enjoy your newly cleaned jacuzzi bathtub!

Tips and warnings

  • Be sure no children or pets are nearby as you clean your jacuzzi bathtub.
  • Remember that water at 48.9 degrees C burns the skin after 10 minutes, so never fill your jacuzzi with water hotter than that.
