How to Prepare Your Hot Tub For Winter

Winter is around the corner, and so is inclement weather like snow, rain & wind.

In the video below, AllSpa Service Technician Jeff will show you how to get your spa ready for the changing seasons and cold weather conditions.

Preparation Tips For Winter Weather:

1. Check Your Spa at Least Once a Week

Even if you are not using your spa, it is important to check it on a regular basis to make sure there are no signs of damage, or indicators of problems including blinking lights.

2. Check Your Spa Straps Are Working

If your spa has a vinyl cover, it is important to check that your cover straps are complete and intact. Working straps are important for protecting your spa during windy weather. If your straps are broken, you can use auxiliary wind straps to secure your cover.

3. Keep Your Cover Clean

Brush off large amounts of snow at once instead of wiping it off as it accumulates. Use a broom to remove the snow- do not use a shovel as it could scratch or damage the cover.

4. Secure Spa Heat During Power Outages 

If a power outage hits your area, keep the cover to your spa closed to help retain heat. A spa with a closed cover can hold its heat for as long as two weeks.
