Prep Your Calgary Hot Tub For The Winter

A hot tub can often best be enjoyed as a way to get yourself feeling warm again. We all know that Calgary can get too cold for comfort this time of year, but you don’t have to worry if you’re stuck here for the season: you can keep your hot tub running all year long. Here is what you need to do to get your hot tub staying in top form no matter the temperature. Follow these tips to make sure you don’t pay more than necessary on keeping you hot tub heated when the temperatures drop.

#1: Get the hot tub cleaned

You spent a long time trying to choose the right hot tub. Like with many things, hot tubs are most efficient when they are in as good of a condition as they can be--so doing this part well makes a difference. What you need to do is get the water out of the shell, and then scrub--the tub, the filters, and the vents. To do this, use a great spa cleanser.

#2: Put water back in the tub and power on the “freeze protection” function

Once you have water in the tub again, you need to figure out how to get “freeze protection” on. There are different ways to do this, so get out your instruction manual. One way to do this is to turn on the standard mode to turn on a sensor that will monitor what is going on in the surrounding climate. Your hot tub will automatically power on a pump to prevent the water from freezing whenever the temperature gets lower than a specified degree.

#3: Invest in a high quality cover to use when you are not in the tub

You want to keep the water in the tub as warm as possible always so that pump you just turned on will not run too much. So, you need a secure cover. This cover needs to stay on whenever the hot tub is not in use.

By keeping it free from dirt and other unwanted contaminants and allowing the water to stay warm, your Calgary hot tub can be an efficient source of warmth all winter long. At World of Spas we have everything you need to run your hot tub, including cleaning supplies and accessories for cold temperatures.

After doing a ton of research we purchased a 16 swim spa from Dynasty Spas and can honestly say it has been one of the best purchases we've ever made! We use it everyday of the year. It's great exercise and keeps the kids out of trouble
