Hot Tub Winterization Tips

The winter weather has hit and for some of us – earlier than we expected. Make sure your hot tub is in top condition to “weather” the weather. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Make Sure Your Cover is at Peak Performance Level

Check for signs of wear and tear-make sure the seal is still tight and intact, so heat doesn’t escape. If you see signs of sagging, fading or cracking, it may be time for a replacement.

Protect Your Cover

Applying a protectant spray like 303 Protectant to the outside of the cover can help preserve it and keep it from becoming cracked in the first place. Applying 303 Protectant to the underside of your cover can help prevent mildew.

Remove Snow from the Spa Cover Before Large Amounts Accumulate

Condensation might occur around the cover locks which could create ice build-up. To remove, splash with warm water; don’t try to pry the ice off. Wind straps are also good to keep the cover tightly secured during high wind storms.

If You’re Going Away for a Few Days Remember These Tips

  • Adjust the pH according to your Owner’s Manual.
  • Sanitize the water with a Chlorine-Free Oxidizer according to instructions.
  • Lock down the cover to prevent access.
  • Upon your return, balance the pH and sanitize the water prior to using.
