In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the simplest ways to maintain your hot tub and keep it running optimally through the winter season. Many people love being able to soak in a warm hot tub to contrast the cold temperatures during winter, and this is easily possible with some basic maintenance and upkeep.
At Hot Tub Factory Outlet, we're here to offer a huge variety of hot tubs and hot tub accessories to clients around Salt Lake City, plus expertise on how to maintain and care for all of our spa options. While part one of our series discussed themes like covers, thermal blankets and water temperature, today's part two will go into some other important maintenance areas if you want to utilize your hot tub year-round.
One area that's very important throughout the year, and especially during winter months, is the cleanliness of both your water and your filter. While you'll want to make sure you're performing a deep cleaning on both at least once per season, it's important to check them frequently for any kind of buildup or dirt that can affect the quality of your hot tub experiences.
Depending on how often you use your spa, it may be necessary to change out your filter at least annually. This is especially important in winter months where snow and other elements can create dirtier water than usual.
Another area to pay attention to during winter months is the potential for pipes freezing. While our typical temperatures in Salt Lake City don't dip as low as some other locations in the US, it's still important to be aware of this risk and take steps to avoid it.
In some cases, this might mean insulating your pipes, but it can also be helpful to keep your hot tub filled with a lower water level than usual. Not only does this help prevent freezing risks, it can also make your winter maintenance easier as there's less water to filter and clean!
Wherever possible, it's always better to be as proactive as possible when it comes to your hot tub maintenance. This means checking all areas regularly and staying on top of any changes that may occur over time. Don't wait until an issue is already causing problems - make sure you're taking the necessary steps to keep your hot tub in its best shape before winter arrives!
