Winter Is Coming
We have to wait until next year for the next season of Game of Thrones, but winter will be upon us in no time at all. Below freezing temperatures can make for an exhilarating hot tub experience, and there’s nothing quite like hopping out of your hot tub and making some snow angels!
With that in mind, here are some tips on how to get the most out of your hot tub this winter season.
Check Your Hot Tubs Cover
A quality Hot Tub cover can help reduce energy consumption and prevent excessive water evaporation. If your old hot tub cover is looking worse for wear you should consider replacing it soon to ensure you get the optimum performance from your hot tub this winter. If a bad storm is forecast, check your cover is strapped down properly. You may want to consider adding a set of hurricane/wind straps for extra protection.
Change Your Water
Changing your hot tubs water before the snow hits will mean you enjoy beautiful clear water for the winter months, and will hopefully keep you from having to wrestle with a frozen hose in the middle of January!
Check Your Filters
As well as changing the hot tubs water, it is also a good idea to wash or change your Filters regularly to maintain crystal clear water in your Hot Tub throughout the year.
Maintain Water Temperature
It is less expensive and more efficient to maintain the temperature of your hot tub than it is to let it cool down and then re-heat it. In winter time it is important to ensure your Sundance hot tub is in “Standard” mode, to maintain temperature, keep water moving through the filter and reduce chemical use.
Check Your GFCI
If you experience a power outage in your area, it is worth going outside after power is restored to check that your hot tubs GFCI is on as it may “trip” after a power loss.
Wear a Toque
Wearing a toque (or your new Toronto Blue jays Cap!) while you soak in the tub will do three things for you. Firstly, you will look really cool. Secondly, it will keep your hair dry, and finally it will stop the heat from escaping through the top of your head!
