winterize your spa

One of the best things about owning a Hot Spring Spa is the ability to enjoy a hydrotherapy session outdoors, regardless of temperatures. Even through the coldest of winter months here in Northeast Ohio, you have the option to use your spa, enjoy a breath of fresh air and the essences of nature in your backyard while you relax and rejuvenate.

Why Some Choose to Keep Their Spa Open

  • Some people will continue using their spa through the winter because they enjoy using it year-round. Even with low temperatures outside, the hot tub can be efficiently heated as high as 104 degrees F.
  • Winterization can be a stressful task, and without proper preparations, it can be done incorrectly. Ohio Pools & Spas strive to educate our customers on winterization, appointments can be made through our service department.
  • Hydrotherapy increases blood flow and the massage releases muscle tension. This can become an essential routine for many people undergoing major stress or people who have certain injuries.

Why Some Choose to Winterize

  • In the winter months, the cold air will require your spa’s heater use more energy to heat the water, which can raise your electricity bill. However, Hot Spring Spas are designed to cut energy costs down to as low as $20 per month on average when compared to other brands.
  • Sometimes, it’s just too cold, snowy, wet and slippery, making your walk to your spa unpleasant.
  • Winterization also gives you the option to hold back on water care for a few months until you are ready to open again.

Whether you choose to winterize or keep your spa open, remember that Ohio Pools & Spas are here to help.

Happy hottubbing in 2017!
