Jet Maintenance

Jet Maintenance

Spin jets and adjustable jets provide variety to hydrotherapy and are a pleasure to use. To keep them operating properly, we recommend these periodic maintenance procedures.


  • Once a month turn ON and OFF each adjustable jet in your spa. Do this several times to each jet in order to free debris or deposits that may have built-up behind the jet.
  • Periodically back flush debris or deposits from the spin mechanism of each jet. To do this, turn jet pump(s) ON to low speed. Working one jet at a time, briefly insert a finger into the jet nozzle and rotate it counter-clockwise. Do not completely obstruct the water flow from the jet nozzle. This procedure is easily performed while using your spa.
  • Once a year, remove each jet from its wall fitting and clean the jet barrel with a clean cloth. Flush wall fitting interior with generous amounts of clear water at maximum garden hose pressure. Re-install jet into wall fitting.


NOTE: Some jet barrels require that trace amounts of Teflon® lubricant be applied to specific parts of the jet barrel. Contact Aqua Vita Spas for more information.
