Tips For Maintaining Your Hot Tub When It’s Cold Outside

Hot Tub Maintenance Do you plan on keeping your hot tub open this winter and using it as often as you can? Great idea! Your hot tub will keep you warm, as long as you take the time to maintain it properly. Check out some tips for maintaining a hot tub in the winter below.

Change the water in your hot tub at the beginning of the season.

Before it gets freezing cold outside, it’s a good idea to dump all of the water out of your hot tub, clean it thoroughly, and then refill it with new water. The last thing you want to do is get stuck emptying your hot tub in the middle of the winter, so you should take the time to do it at the start of the season when it’s not too cold yet. This will allow you to add the proper chemicals to it when it’s clean so that you won’t have to worry about emptying it again until the spring comes back around.

Make sure your hot tub is covered when you aren’t using it.

While it’s important to check the quality of the water in your hot tub throughout the winter, it’s just as important to make sure you have a high-quality cover that will keep your hot tub closed when you aren’t using it. Heat can escape if the cover doesn’t fit or is old and doesn’t cover the whole hot tub. This will waste a lot of money and will result in a colder hot tub when you get into it.

Check your hot tub’s water level regularly.

You can run into all sorts of problems when the water level in your hot tub is too low. It could potentially lead to your pump and heater shutting down, and if that happens, the water in your hot tub will freeze and cause damage to it. Therefore, you should check your water levels at least once every few days and add water as necessary.
