How to Turn your Hot Tub into a Cool Summer Spa

familyfun2-07During the hot summer months hot tub owners often put the cover on their hot tub and leave it unused until the cooler months roll back around. Many people have overlooked a simple solution that would make their spas a wonderful summer gathering spot for friends and family. 

I’m happy to tell you that converting your hot tub into a refreshing summer spa can be done in a few easy steps. By turning down the heat, or turning offthe heater entirely and draining some of the warm water; replacing it with cool water to provide a refreshing summer spa you’re sure to create a favorite spot for relaxing and socializing in your own backyard.

Keeping the water cool can be done by using your cover and insulation to keep the cool temperature locked in. We know that water warms slower than the air outside therefore the water will continue to be cooler longer. If you keep your spa cover on during the day when you’re not using it and at night, remove it leaving the air jets running to drop the temperature a few more degrees you will keep a cool comfortable temperature throughout the hot summer months.

Draining your hot tub during the summer is a bad idea, so why not utilize it and make it a functional part of your summer fun. By keeping water in your spa it keeps the seals moist which prevents cracking. Water that is moving keeps the water clear and the pipes in good condition; standing water without movement can increase your chance of corrosion causing costly problems later.

Use your hot tub all year round by making easy adjustments as the seasons change. You will love it and your family will have a new way to enjoy the fun summer months.
