How to Properly Care for a Marquis Swim Spa


Share this blog:

Marquis® swim spas, which are known as Aquatic Training Vessels™, are an excellent choice. Whether you are a competitive athlete or recreational swimmer, you’ll find the model that’s right for you. ATV™ swim spas have a loyal following — and for good reason. Marquis is the gold standard when it comes to delivering the most efficient water management system on the market. Let’s take a look at how to properly care for your Marquis swim spa. You’ll discover just why Marquis is the top choice for your swim spa needs.

Your Favorite Asset

One of the most incredible features you’ll find on your ATV swim spa is the ConstantClean™ automated system. With built-in software, your ATV swim spa will automatically sense when your spa needs a little extra attention. In fact, in only two and a half hours it will cycle your water through the fantastic filtration system five times each day on average. This helps remove particles and debris from your water. It will also set a 30-minute cycle to run after you use your swim spa, helping to eliminate sunscreen and body oils immediately after use. According to Marquis, “ConstantClean filters more water per day than other brand, and does it in one tenth of the time!” 

That’s pretty amazing! So, where do I come in?

You don’t have to feel totally useless when it comes to maintaining your Marquis swim spa. You are still a very important part in keeping your spa cared for. So what do you need to do?

First, test your water on a weekly basis. You’ll need your favorite choice of sanitizer, as well as chemicals to adjust the pH, alkalinity, calcium, and metal content of your water. In-line sanitation cartridges are also an option on several ATV swim spa models. Whether you choose chlorine or bromine, test and balance your water a few times each week and adjust the proper chemicals as needed. This is especially important if there has been some evaporation and you need to fill your spa with a little extra water. Balancing your water correctly will keep your swim spa healthy and clean.

Next, take care of any debris in the swim spa. Gritty debris that may blow in or sneak in on the bottom of your feet as you enter should be cleaned out regularly. Check your skimmer and suction guards, and then use your spa vac to vacuum the bottom of your swim spa. Taking good care of your spa will guarantee a successful ownership experience.

Finally, don’t forget the items that may not be on your weekly-maintenance list. Your filter cartridge should be cleaned with a good cartridge cleaner once a month. At the end of the year, it’s a great idea to replace it. Also, drain your swim spa and give it a good cleaning on the inside and outside three to four times a year. A gentle cleanser and soft cloth should do the job. Or, contact us for recommended products that make cleaning your swim spa oh, so easy. And don’t forget the beautiful top to your swim spa!
