Cleaning your Spa

Keeping your hot tub clean can help to ensure that it’s safe to use and the system is performing well. Daily life during the winter months can easily become busy and hectic. It doesn’t take long for your hot tub care and maintenance to slip through the cracks. Completely draining and cleaning your hot tub is a great way to get started on the right foot.

Start by turning off the heater and powering down your Sundance® Spa. You can start the draining process once your hot tub is successfully shut down. Take this time to empty any air blowers, remove and clean filters, open drain plugs, and blow jets. Use a shop vacuum to remove any excess water from pump hosing and jets that might freeze and possibly damage your system.

Now it’s time to clean the shell. Once your Sundance® Spa is completely drained and dry, use a spa cleanser to clean the interior of your hot tub. This can help to remove any residue and keep the shell in the best condition possible.

Once your spa is clean, you can refill it and add chemicals accordingly. If you do not wish to operate your spa during the wintertime, you can place and secure your hot tub cover until the spring.

Spa Maintenance and Care

Harsh winter weather can come unexpectedly. It can be beneficial for you to visit Snow Valley Spa and Leisure to stock up on hot tub care products that will last you all winter long. This will help to avoid any unnecessary driving or leaving the house during the wintertime, especially with unpredictable weather.

You can also take this time to revamp any hot tub accessories that may need a replacement. It might be a good idea to replace your hot tub cover if it is deteriorating or starting to tear. Seasonal elements such as ice, snow and harsh winds can damage your cover further, which can ultimately put your hot tub system at risk.
