STERLING acrylic baths and whirlpools are designed for superior style and functionality. To keep your bath or whirlpool in top shape, keep these tips in mind.
How to Care for Your Bath or Whirlpool
- Do not use abrasive cleansers or aerosol products on acrylic surfaces as they may cause surface dullness or discoloration.
- Wipe your bath or whirlpool with a soft cloth or squeegee after each use to prevent a buildup of soap and scum.
How to Flush Your Whirlpool System
Flush your whirlpool system twice a month or more, depending upon usage.
- Adjust the jets fully clockwise so there is no air induction.
- Fill the bath with warm water to a level 2" above the highest jets or leave water in the bath after using.
- Add two teaspoons of a low-foaming, powder automatic dishwasher detergent and 20 ounces of household bleach (5% to 6% sodium hypochlorite) to the water.
- Run the whirlpool for 5 to 10 minutes. Then shut off the whirlpool and drain the water.

General Care and Cleaning
For best results, keep the following in mind:
- Test first. Always test cleaning solutions on an inconspicuous area first before applying to the entire surface.
- Wipe clean. Wipe surfaces clean and rinse completely with water immediately after applying cleaner. Rinse and dry any overspray that lands on nearby surfaces.
- Don’t let cleaners soak. Do not allow cleaners to sit or soak.
- Avoid abrasive materials. Use a soft, dampened sponge or cloth. Never use an abrasive material such as a brush or scouring pad to clean surfaces.
