How to Winterize a Jacuzzi Hot Tub

As fall and winter approach, many jacuzzi owners enjoy the comfort of their hot tubs while baring the chill of the colder months. To maximize the quality of comfort, you will need to put forth an effort to winterize your jacuzzi hot tub. We will present a step-by-step approach on hot tub winter maintenance, providing helpful tips along the way.

Maintaining your Hot Tub during Winter

The cost of heating and maintenance in cooler months is a concern for many hot tub and jacuzzi spa owners. However with adequate care and preparation, the health and length of use of your tub can be preserved cost-effectively for seasons to come. Below, we explain how to protect and maintain a hot tub during the winter.

First, you will need to drain and clean your hot tub. Clean the filters, vents, and surface area of your jacuzzi. Check for surface damages, assuring the quality of your tub. If there are cracks or potential leaks, it’s important to repair them ASAP. This ensures your water levels and heating costs stay manageable.

Then, refill your hot tub with a fresh batch of water. We recommend doing this before snowfall and freezing rain. The longer you wait to change and refill your water, the more risk you run into freezing water temperatures. Avoid harm from freeze damage at all costs.

After the water has been replaced, consistent monitoring of water levels is necessary. The water level directly affects it’s ability to be a hot tub. If levels get too low in cold temperatures, they are more likely to freeze. If levels are maintained at standard capacity, they are less likely to freeze. Other helpful tips include investing in a secure cover and switching modes to an anti-freeze monitoring system. Of course, being precise in assessing damage and repair is the first and most important step.

Keep the cover securely fastened. In doing so, it will maintain a consistent water level, avoiding extra costs associated with heating.
