MESA uses durable, high quality materials and innovative technology in the manufacturing and design of its product to minimize the time you need to spend cleaning and caring for them. However, proper and regular maintenance is still vital.
Bathtub, TubShower & Shower Maintenance
Clean regularly with a non-abrasive cleaning spray, cream-based cleansing agent or dishwashing soap. Any cleaning product with the inscription "safe for acrylic" may be used. Pure vinegar is useful to remove stubborn stains, but if the stain persists, use 99% alcohol. Never use abrasive cleansers, scrapers, metal brushes, or anything that could scratch or dull the surface.
Add luster and remove fine scratches from acrylic tub and shower surfaces by cleaning and polishing regularly with MESA Lumacream, a specially formulated product available from MESA dealers. Regular car wax may also be used.
Help prevent dust build-up on acrylic tub and shower surfaces with MESA Lumashine, a special acrylic surface cleaner that creates an anti-static, dust-repellent surface as it cleans. Lumashine is available from MESA dealers.
Remove plaster residue with a plastic or wooden spatula wrapped in a moist cloth.
Repair nicked or damaged surfaces immediately using MESA repair kits for acrylic surfaces, available from MESA dealers.
Clean your shower doors after every use. Use a squeegee to wipe water and soap residue off the interior. If you have hard water, spray the door with a solution of 1/3 white vinegar and 2/3 water prior to wiping.
Wipe your shower door track regularly with a dry cloth after showering. MESA offers unique shower door systems: the Sure-Glide and EZ Kleen systems help prevent water and soap accumulation, but do still require periodic wiping.
Replace shower door gaskets (horizontal and vertical) if there is any tear or if they become discolored. Gaskets are easy to purchase and change, however, specific showers require specific models. Check your purchase invoice for details.
Whirlpool Maintenance & Use
Clean piping and pump monthly. Fill the bathtub with hot water (max. 104°F/40°C) up to two inches (5 cm) above the jets; add the cleansing agent (either whirlpool piping cleaner or 2 cups of dishwasher powder), and turn the whirlpool system on for 10 minutes. Empty the bathtub. Use cold water to rinse, turning the system back on for 10 minutes, while keeping the air controls turned off.
Never use dishwashing soap as a replacement for bath soaps as they are highly foaming and can create excessive suds that may clog your whirlpool system.
Use therapeutic products, such as bath oils, salts and bubble baths with caution, as they may damage your tub's system. Read the directions for such products closely and, if needed, test prior to use.
Shower Body Jet System Maintenance
The MESA, and Integrated Multi-Jet shower system jets work like normal showerheads and do not require any specific maintenance
