How to clean a Whirlpool or Jacuzzi Bath Tub

There is nothing like coming home from a hard days work or a stressful day with the kids and having a soak in the bath! Even better if you have a Whirlpool or Jacuzzi bath. Putting on some music, fill the tub with steaming water, light scented candles, pour a glass of wine, slip into the bath, and fire up those jets to gently massage and relax you—only to be coated slimy black gunk and greasy gray bubbles! EErrrrrrwwwww!

Like many Jacuzzi and whirlpool baths, under use and incorrectly cleaning can lead to the jet becoming full of  bacteria and mould. The good news is that it isn’t hard to clean and maintain your Whilepool bath.

I advise all my customers to purchase some Eddy Whirlpool Bath cleaning products. There are three products in total… Hang on, this is going to be expensive… I hear you saying, well actually no its not. All three products can be purchased for around £25 and will last for up to 5 months, but if you are getting a new system fitted you only really need 2 of the products. The Eddy cleaning solutions work out much cheaper than other DIY cleaning, like adding lemons and vinegar.


Eddy Whirlpool Bath Degreaser, If you have never cleaned your whirlpool system in your bath, or you have just moved into a home with a whirlpool system in the bath then start with Eddy Whirlpool Bath Degreaser. This can be purchased for around £12 online. This is the ultimate degreaser for whirlpool systems, once thoroughly cleaned then use Eddy Whirlpool Sterilizing tablets

Eddy Whirlpool Sterilizing tablets are the main product in the range of Eddy cleaning solutions. You can buy these for around £6 and you get 30 tablets in total. After each time using the whirlpool function on the bath, simply drop a tablet in the water as you get out, run the bath for 2 minutes while you are getting dry, then empty the bath. Simple as that.

The final product in the range is a monthly deep cleaning agent. This is called the Eddy Whirlpool Cleaner. You use this every 4-5 weeks and will last for four cleans. To use this you need to add 125ml of the 500ml bottle to a bath of clean warm water, and with the air controller (if present) closed, switch on your whirlpool for 10 – 15 minutes then drain the bath. Rinse the bath thoroughly by filling the bath with fresh water (you can use cold water now to save money and energy) and circulating it round the system for a further 5 minutes before draining again. You could add this cleaning process to your monthly cleaning routine which I have explained here.

Hope you find this helpful.
