How To Take Care of Your Hot Tub This Winter
At Pools of Fun, we’re more than Indiana’s largest luxury pool builder – we’re also experts when it comes to taking care of your hot tub.
Here are a few tips to get the most out of your hot tub this winter.
Keep a Tight Lid On It
No one likes a luke-warm spa. To maximize water temperature, keeping your spa cover on tight prevents hot water from escaping, which in turn means you have to wait hours for your tub to get hot. Also, if your cover folds open, keep one-half covered to ensure the heat stays trapped inside. And if your cover has holes or a tear in it, don’t wait around to replace it either.
Run Your Hot Tub Frequently
Your hot tub might seem to be able to withstand the rigors of cold weather, but the machine behind all that hot water needs a little TLC to operate efficiently. Make sure to set the built-in thermostat to ‘no-freeze.’ This setting tells your tub to continuously run water through the pipes to prevent freezing. Paying for broken pipe repair will be an expensive fix, so taking precautionary measures is essential.
Get Your Chemicals from Pools of Fun
We have five conveniently located stores around Indianapolis to ensure you’re getting the right chemicals for your spa. One pitfall we’ve run into with spa owners is that they purchase their chemicals online from a large retailer and their water levels are all out of whack. We have a comprehensive system to test your spa water and ensure you receive the correct chemicals.
We’ve also learned is that time is the most valuable commodity for hot tub season. Ordering online can mean snags in shipping or incorrect products, which means you have to send it back and wait for the right chemicals to arrive. What you’re actually losing is precious days with your spa, which can be infuriating. That’s why partnering with a reliable chemical tester and provider in Pools of Fun means you get exactly what you need the same day.
