Prepping Your Hot tub For Winter:
We offer a few recommendations in prepping your hot tub as Colorado’s snowy winter months approach us. By preparing your hot tub for the cold and freezing temperatures seen in the winter here in CO, you can save yourself money on preventable hot tub repairs as well as costly electric bills.
- Invest in a winter blanket for your hot tub- helps in maintaining the the heated temperature without using excessive energy.
- Check Cover For Wear & Tear– make sure that your hot tub covers seal is intact and sealing correctly. Also check for wear and tear like small holes and such that will interfere with keeping those unwanted impurities out of the water and creating algae and bacteria.
- Replace your cover– While replacing your cover can be an added expense, it is suggested that when any signs of sagging, fading, or cracking can be seen on your hot tub cover, you replace it. This helps to maintain the internal parts of your hot tub as well as allow for a greater longevity of your tub and a healthy environment for those wishing to soak.
- Make Sure You Soak Nightly– When it’s cold outside, a hot soak while the jets massage your muscles after a long day is one of the reasons you own a hot tub! Make sure you take full advantage of it and get your daily soak in.
