POSITIONING AND INSULATION
If you are going to hire a hot tub in winter, try to make sure it is positioned on a raised platform to avoid heat loss through the base and preferably in a sheltered or covered area to reduce wind chill, rain and snow. You might want to consider insulating your Lay‑Z‑Spa too.
CLEAN THE FILTER REGULARLY
Same as any other time of year, regardless of the amount of use, clean your filter regularly and make sure it is on for at least 8 hours a day to work properly and keep your water clean.
CLEAN THE OUTSIDE
In cold, dark, and damp wintery conditions grime, dirt and unpleasant weather stains can quickly build up in various nooks and crannies. Give the pump, outside of the liner and top cover of your hot tub a regular wipe down with warm soapy water or detergent.
CHECK YOUR TOP COVER
Your top cover prevents dirt and debris from getting in. It is a good idea to regularly check your top cover and lid. If necessary, adjust the tension on the straps and add a bit more air to the lid. It is good practice to remove any build‑up of rain or snow as quickly as you can too.
