How to Safely Use Your Hot Tub/Spa This Winter
Your pool may be closed for the season, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy your hot tub or spa this winter. Below, you’ll find some tips on how to keep your hot tub safe for all and how to ensure that it stays in top condition.
Be Wary of Outside Temperatures
Next time you crank up the heat on your hot tub, make sure you keep plenty of warm clothes and towels nearby so that you don’t send your body into a fritz with the drastic change in temperature. Exiting the warm comfort of your spa and entering the cold winter weather does have an affect on your body. You should try and limit your time in the tub to around 20 minutes and cover up quickly afterwards.
With those warm temperatures, it’s always a good idea to drink plenty of water before and after you get into a hot tub. Alcohol aids in dehydration, so try to steer clear of too much booze when you’re in the tub.
Change the Water Before Winter
Freezing temperatures can make changing the water in your spa a nightmare. Make sure you take care of this before the frigid temperatures really set in.
Keep the Water Clean
Once you change the water, make sure you keep up on a routine cleaning schedule. You don’t want to have to re-change out the water, especially in the middle of winter.
Rely Less on the Jets
Because jets blow air into the water, they ultimately lower the water temperature. Instead of cranking the heat to compensate, you can always lower or turn off your jets and run your spa on a lower temperature.
