The most effective way to keep dirt and debris out of the water is to never walk bare foot prior to getting in the spa, or washing your feet and dirt from your body before entering the water. In saying that there is always going to be that one time when dirt and debris just happen to enter the water.
Here are some helpful ways to remove this unwanted organics from the spa:
1. Spa Vac
The design allows you to quickly clean any water fixture. If your spa is frequently dirty, this Supa Vac would be ideal – You can purchase this item for about $63.00
2. Silly Putty

3. Homemade Siphon
