As the days grow shorter and the temperatures plummet, it's time to start thinking about winterising your hot tub. Properly preparing your hot tub for the winter months is essential to protect it from damage and ensure it's ready for use when the warmer weather returns. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to winterise your hot tub and keep it in great shape throughout the cold season.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Before you begin the winterisation process, gather all the necessary supplies:
1. Hot tub cover and thermal blanket
2. Spa cover clips or straps
3. Garden hose
4. Submersible pump (optional)
5. Spa filter cleaner and pipe cleaner
6. Spa vacuum (wet and dry vacuum) or net
7. Propylene Glycol antifreeze (Optional).
8. A long funnel if using anti-freeze for pouring the antifreeze into narrow openings.
Hot tubs are designed to be used all year long. They are not designed to be left for long periods without water in them. The parts in the hot tub can be damaged if left without water in them and you may find you will need expensive parts replacing when you start it up again.
If you don't feel you will use your hot tub during the cooler months, it is advisable to turn the temperature down to the lowest setting and maintain the water balance for the duration. This will prevent frost damage and the potential for expensive parts to degrade whilst they are not in use.
