Time Required: 30-60 minutes

Resources Required:

1. Dishwater detergent

1. Fill jacuzzi with hot water: Open the water taps and fill hot water in the jacuzzi. When you observe that all pipe openings of the jet are submerged in water, turn off the water flow in jacuzzi.

2. Drop dishwater detergent into the jacuzzi: Once the jets are completely submerged in water, drop about two dishwater detergent cubes. If you prefer powder, put about 4 tablespoon of dishwater detergent powder. As the dishwater detergent does not create bubbles present with the dish soap, it is better to prefer dishwater detergent.

3. Add disinfecting agent to the jacuzzi: Pour about half a cup of disinfectant to the water. If you prefer chemical based disinfectant, use chlorine bleaches else use white vinegar or oxygen bleach. All act as disinfectants. Now, turn on the jets on high and run water for 15 minutes. Drain the water completely after running the jets for 15 minutes.
