While some people are having a tough time letting go of warmer temperatures, hot tub owners are excited for fall. This time of year is prime hot tub season. Whether you enjoyed your hot tub throughout the summer or you’re ready to open it up for the season, it is good to be prepared. We’ll share five things to do for your hot tub in fall to get it ready to enjoy.
Drain, Clean and Refill
The start of the fall season is the perfect time to do a refresh on your hot tub. This starts with draining the current water. Once you have drained the water, take time to do a thorough cleaning of the inside of the hot tub. This includes flushing out the plumbing as well. After everything has been cleaned, it’s time to refill the water in your hot tub. If it is really dirty, you can even use a purge agent before you drain.
Replace or Clean Filters
Once your hot tub is clean with fresh water, the next thing to do for your hot tub is replace or clean the filters. This is easily done with your backyard garden hose. Simply remove the filter from the hot tub and spray it down with the hose. The pressure from the water hose will help to remove dirt and debris from the filter.
Balance the Water
After all of the work to clean your hot tub, be sure it stays clean by balancing the water. This will keep the water fresh and ready for use. Water maintenance doesn’t have to be time-consuming, either. With Auto Ship, all of the chemicals and materials you need for clean water will ship directly to your front door at the perfect time.
Check the Condition of Your Hot Tub Cover
Another thing to do for your hot tub is check on the hot tub cover. This is not only the main way to prevent dirt and debris from entering your hot tub, but it also helps maintain the water temperature. Start by removing any leaves, branches or other debris that has landed on top of the cover. This can help with the longevity of your hot tub cover as too much debris can lead to a sagging cover. While you’re at it, double check that your hot tub cover closes correctly and the seal and locks are tight.
Set the Water Temperature
The water temperature you enjoyed all summer may need to be adjusted as the days grow crisp and cool in the fall. The last thing to do for your hot tub is be sure to adjust the water temperature. To complement the cooler weather, many hot tub owners settle for water temperatures anywhere from 100 degrees to 102 degrees. Once you’ve found the right temperature for your liking, keep it within that range to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone.
