Winterizing your Hot Tub? Here are the steps you need

Winter Hot Tub

Winterizing your hot tub? It’s getting to that time of year again. Summer seems a distant thing of the past. The trees are starting to change colour and the temperature has dropped. For me, this is a great time of year as it is when my own Hot Tub really comes to life. I love being outside and it prolongs the use of the garden. We use our Hot Tub all year round, however, some of you will be packing it up for the winter. In this post, we are going to look at the steps you need to take.

I know I did when mine continually did this. (And I dont have a lot of hair left to be pulling out!)

Help! My Hot Tub Water is Murky!

If you own a hot tub, you may encounter all kinds of problems that need to be solved. Murky water is one of the most popular. Under this generic term, water that is cloudy, misty or anything that is not crystal clear is represented. The milky appearance of water is caused by particles floating in the water, which give it its murky appearance. These particles are too small to be reached and too small to get caught in the filter, so they run straight ahead and stay in the water.

Should I use Bromine or Chlorine in my Hot Tub?

Let’s face it, there is no better way to relax than in a Hot Tub in your back yard. Whether it is summer or winter, they are just perfect all year round.
