Winter Tips For Your Hot Tub

Surviving Power Outages


Hot Spring Spas are not only fully foamed, but also totally insulated. Should you lose power, simply leave your Hot Spring Spa covered until power resumes.

We recommend maintaining your spa temperature at a minimum of 100 degrees during the winter months. Should a power outage occur, temperature loss is minimal and will reheat when power resumes.

All spas dating back to 1997 will automatically reset the temperature to 100-102 degrees. There is no need to reprogram.

Installing a winter blanket protects your equipment from freezing during power outages.

Draining a hot tub during a power outage WILL result in freeze damage. The only way to remove all of the water from the equipment and internal lines is with a shop vac or blower (which requires electricity).

You will have residual water that will freeze and damage your spa if you drain it. Our experience is the entire spa body will maintain the hot water more effectively than small amounts (freezes quicker!)


Increasing your Hot Tub’s Energy Efficiency

Keep Your Hot Tub Safe and Warm:
Always latch your spa cover down

Cover Hinge Seal:
Install in the seam of your hot tub cover, the most vulnerable part of your cover

Winter Insulating Blanket:
Install in your equipment compartment to protect equipment during power outages and increase energy efficiency.


Is your Spa as Energy Efficient as it could be?

Is it leaking money?
• Is your hot tub cover showing its age?
• Not sealing properly?
• Not fitting snuggly?
• Waterlogged and heavy to lift?
• Sagging, fading, or cracking?
• Worn or torn?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, your spa cover is not as energy efficient as it could be! Contact us today to get a new Hot Spring Spa Cover for maximum insulation and energy efficiency.

Ensure the longevity and ease of use with a new Hot Spring Cover Lift System: pneumatic gas springs take the work out of opening your spa cover!
