How Winter Can Be the Best Time to Use Your Hot Tub?

Many people enjoy using their hot tub or spa during the cold winter months. There is nothing more relaxing than soaking in the hot water, enjoying the solitude. Whether you have an ornate little courtyard or a large yard with a pool, the serenity of hot tub water can have a calming effect, making you want to spend more time in your spa or hot tub. If you really want to connect with nature, hot tubs are a great option. This article will uncover certain tips to ensure smooth operation and efficiency of your hot tub all winter long.

1, Stock up all your Master Spa Legend Series filters

Make sure you have an extra set of master spa legend series filters and enough hot tub chemicals: spa boss spa shock and other spa boss chemicals, and other hot tub parts and supplies to last you through the winter. The weather can be unpredictable and you should not take the chance to purchase these items when the roads are icy or difficult to navigate.

2. Protect your Pipes from freezing

The best way to ensure your pipes will not freeze during the winter is to keep the system fully operational. Do not reduce your temperature or lower filtration settings. Do not drain the spa if not necessary. Normal operation is best for the cold months. Even if you lose power, the spa will remain warm for several days as long as the cover is kept closed until you can restore power and get your hot tub up and running again. Make sure to check your hot tub at least twice a week to make sure the spa is running normally. Also, clean your filters regularly to ensure the system does not become clogged.

3. Cover it with a spa cover

Adding a cover to your spa will ensure that the heat stays in the spa and that the dirt stays out. It can also help protect your system, keep debris from entering the spa, reduce water evaporation and chemical depletion from sunlight - saving you on your heating, water and maintenance costs. The spa covers also come with locks on two sides; this will keep unwanted guests out of your spa. Be sure to remove snow as it accumulates on the cover.

4. Turning off Air Jets

Turn the air jets off when you're not in the hot tub. Running the air jets in the winter injects cold air into the spa water, causing the hot tub to use more energy to maintain the water temperature. If you do use your jets, make sure you turn them off after every use.

If you take the proper precautions, you can enjoy your hot tub all winter long.
