How to Winterize Your Spa
WINTERPROOF™ All Purpose Water System Antifreeze with BURST GUARD™ Guarantee -100˚F will help you avoid complications and costly repairs:
Be safe and remember to turn off your power to your hot tub.
Your spa cover needs cleaning too! This is a great time to clean your hot tub cover with a safe cleaner and water.
If you’re going to clean and close your hot tub for the winter, you might as well do a thorough job of it and clear out your filters while you’re at it. Clean out your filter baskets with a safe cleaner and store them inside for the winter if you’re shutting down your hot tub for the season.
Use either your exterior hot tub drain (usually found along the base of the hot tub) – or if your spa doesn’t have one, you can use a submersible pump – to drain the water. First, remove the drain cap and attach a hose or piping to direct water to an area of your property that will allow it to easily flow and disperse. Once the water inside the tub is drained, leave the drain spout open.
If your hot tub has valves on the top, unthread the valves and insert a shop vac to blow water out through the jets. Run the shopvac through each of the valves until you don’t see anymore water coming through the jets.
If your spa does not offer top valve access to the pipes, locate the pumps and loosen the unions, opening the plumbing pipes. Use a shopvac to blow water through the plumbing pipes and jets.
Even small amounts of water left behind in your spa can cause cracks, so it’s important to try to get all of the water out of it. Use a shopvac or a sump pump to suck or pump the remaining water out of the footwell and seats, while using a shopvac to blow out the remaining water in the jets. Hold the shopvac over each jet for about 15-20 seconds.
Use our All Purpose Water System Antifreeze, as directed on the product label.
Once you’re done, remember to place the cover back onto your spa for the season.
