Winter is upon us! With frigid winter weather on its way, it is time to protect your investment. Cold temperatures can cause spas to freeze. Spas can freeze quickly, some freezing in as little as a few hours under the right conditions. This causes serious damage, which leads to expensive repair bills and a down time in the season when you need your hot tub the most. If for any reason your spa loses power and shuts off, using an incandescent trouble light can help prevent the spa from freezing for a short time.
It is important you have a good cover to keep the heat in and limit the chances or your spa freezing. If your cover is getting large icicles, it may be time to get a new cover. Also, be careful this time of year; it’s icy out there. Be sure to watch out for ice when getting out of your hot tub.
Tip: Check your spa daily in freezing temperatures to ensure your spa is safe from freezing.
