Canadian winters are a harsh time of year. With freezing temperatures and chilling winds, many opt to spend their time staying toasty warm inside, as opposed to braving the elements. Fortunately, with proper care and preparation, hot tubs can be enjoyed all year round. To get the most out of your hot tub experience this winter, make sure you’re using the following accessories.
Use a Hot Tub Cover
It’s crucial to the functioning of your hot tub to have a cover. Hot tub covers properly insulate your spa, which reduces its energy consumption. By keeping in the heat and preventing the cold air from lowering the temperature of your spa’s water, your hot tub heater won’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature of the water.
A hot tub cover is crucial to keep your hot tub water from being contaminated, preventing critters from accessing the tub and just keeping our bacteria, but as the temperatures drop, hot tub covers become even more important.
Avoid the Use of Jets
For winter hot tub use, it can be best to avoid using the jets. This function can blow cool air into the water and can rapidly lower the temperature of your hot tub. If you are interested in using them, use them sparingly and ensure they are turned off after your time in the water is done.
Have a Jacuzzi Robe
Getting out of your nice warm spa in freezing temperatures can be a rather unpleasant experience. Having a nice warm Jacuzzi robe to put on, upon getting out, will help you stay warm. A towel warmer is an effective way to keep your towel or robe warm, while you’re enjoying a soak in your hot tub, so it’ll be toasty warm as you put it on.
