Snowbirds: Leaving for the Sun? How to Shut Your Hot Tub Down for the Winter

October 27, 2010

SNOWBIRDS: Don’t let your hot tub freeze over the winter while you’re basking in the sun. You know you’ll want to come home and soak in your Hot Spring Spa next spring.  Here are some tips from our service center on what to do to winterize your spa:

1. Check your Owners’ Manual first. Follow the instructions in your Owners’ Manual for draining. Lost your Owners’ Manual? Check out our Olympic Hot Tub Company website for one that corresponds to your model. Not sure which model you own? Call our Service Center 8-5 Monday-Friday 206 431-2876.

2. Drain Caps. Do not replace the drain caps after draining. You’ll want any remaining moisture in the plumbing lines to evaporate.

3. Filters. Clean the filters and leave them in a dry space over the winter. Do not re-install in the tub.  The damp will cause them to mildew and you’ll need new ones in the spring.

4. Remove all water. Wet vacuum all water from the floor of the hot tub.

5. Clean! Give the shell a good cleaning.

If you’ve got too much on your mind and don’t want to do-it-yourself, call our Valet Crew. They’re pros who can do the job quickly and efficiently. For a one time winterization, they’ll drain, clean and detail the spa shell. Clean the filters. Clean and condition the cover. Clean the cabinet. Wet vacuum out the jets, drain and suction lines as well as the bottom of the spa so there’s no water left to freeze in the foot well.
