Prepare, Winterize and Close Your Hot Tub

If you take a little more time preparing your hot tub for winter, you can open it in very short order in the Spring. 

Prepratory Clean

  1. 24 hours before emptying the hot tub, add a degreaser to remove oils from skin and bath products. These can build up in the pipes and jets. 
  2. Sink an underwater pump into the tub and remove stale spa water

Clean Vents and Filters

  1. Remove the cartridge filter from the skimmer. Be sure to clean all around the skimmer.
  2. Soak the filter in water mixed with a filter cleaner to dissolve oils and built-up sediment. Rinse well and set aside.  Check with All Brevard Hot Tubs for the recommended cleaner.
  3. Vacuum any remaining water with the shop vac.
  4. Replace the cartridge filter into the skimmer.

Wipe Down and Polish all Surfaces of the Spa Hot Tub

  1. With a non-abrasive polish, clean all surfaces of the hot tub.
  2. Clean and polish any controls and handles.
  3. If you are closing your hot tub for winter, go to the next step or skip it to if you will continue to use your hot tub in winter.

Close the Hot Tub and Cover for Winter

  1. Pull all plugs and open all of the drains to make sure your hot tub is empty & dry.  Any water remaining may cause pipes to crack if the water freezes.
  2. Open a pipe union near the whirlpool pump to vent out air.
  3. Unplug and turn off all power to the hot tub.
  4. Put on the hot tub cover.
  5. Cover with a protective tarp.  Be sure to tie id down with rope, cords or velcro strips.



smelling-armpitsKeeping your hot tub covered for long periods of time can produce a musty or mildew smell on your cover after a time.

That’s why it’s important to keep your cover clean and free of these odors.

To help prevent this mildew smell, use a small amount of bleach (10%) added to water (90%) and wipe down the bottom of the hot tub cover every 60-90 days. This will help prevent your cover from getting that musty smell that everyone dislikes.
Do more frequent partial water changes instead of complete water changes to improve water clarity and water chemestry in your hot tub. This is common practice with fish tanks - it also works with your hot tub.

Many are generally not sure why they have to change the water in their hot tub. The main reason is to reduce TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) and make water balancing much easier.


All Brevard Hot Tubs sell many hot tubs curing the Winter, and doing partial water changes (more frequently) is much more convenient and faster than a complete water change.

How to keep your Hot Tub cover protected and looking good.

Vinyl Hot Tub Covers

Vinyl material used on hot tub covers is a backed fabric.  It has an outer layer made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC).  When it is manufactured, it is sealed with a top layer containing plasticizers, colors and softeners.

Because your hot tub cover spends all its time outside and under the Florida sun, it is important to protect it against UV damage. Our covers use Marine Grad Vinyl to resist UV damage and mildew resistenance.

Protecting your Investment from Damage


On a monthly basis, we recommend using a vinyl conditioner to wiped down the tub cover.  It will keep it looking good and it will maintain its UV protection.  Below is a list of cover cleaners with UV protection:
  • 303 Aerospace Protectant
  • Spa Essentials Spa Spa Cover Wipes
  • Clor Mor® Spa Cover Cleaner
  • Pool Solutions Cover Cleaner
  • Leisure Time Spa Care (Mfg#3192)
  • EcoOne Shell and Liner Cleaner
Note: The UV-blocking ingredients in your cover care product will also work on your outdoor furniture that uses vinyl.

Note Note: Be sure to NOT use a product that is labeled "Flammable"

salt-treateSALT TREAT

Salt Treat’s patented formula is the perfect recipe for removing stains in Salt Water Pools

Salt Treat is a patented stain remover designed specifically for removing stains in Salt Water pools.

While salt water and chlorine generator pools are a popular alternative, an often drawback is their frequency to leave light stains on the surface of the pool. Salt Treat eliminates this by dissolving the stains of the surface and keep metals dissolved in water for up to 60 days. What you’re left with is all the benefits of a Salt Water System and none of the drawbacks.

Salt Treat also prevents calcium build-up from forming on the salt cell generators, making your equipment last longer and work more efficiently.
Very easy to use, simply add one bottle of Salt Treat per 20,000 gallons to your swimming pool in the affected area. Then just follow up with a treatment every 60 days to keep your salt cell system in tip-top shape while keeping stains from coming back.
  • Provides a barrier to surface staining
  • Protects against efflorescence(calcium)
  • Protects wall fittings original color
  • Retains natural look and is suitable for all pool surfaces
  • Prevents scaling of the cells in all chlorine generators

What is Salt Treat?

Salt Treat is a sequestrant & a chelator. Those are fancy words for a metal holding, stain remover and preventor chemical.
black-treatBLACK TREAT

Black Treat has the strength to control Swimming Pool Black Algae.

Features:
  • Kills black algae
  • Easy to use
  • Safe for you and your pets
  • Contains no metals

A lesser known fact of black algae is that it can never be “cured”; black algae releases spores that can remain dormant on the surface of your pool for years - it can even survive things like acid washing the surface directly. While spores aren’t visible – this means your pool will be susceptible to black algae growth. On top of this, Black Algae growth is difficult to eradicate.

Luckily, Black Treat is specifically formulated to eradicate outbreaks of swimming pool black algae in one easy to administer dose; simply add one bottle per 20,000 gallons and follow the recommendations on the bottle for super chlorination.

And to make sure you never have an outbreak of Black Algae again, we always recommend that you follow up with No Mor Problems® to suppress black algae from coming back and to keep your pool crystal clear all season long.

Customer Testimonial

Tried a Competitor - Oops...

After shopping for a hot tub from several stores including All Brevard Hot Tubs we ended up buying a tub from their local competitor.

The tub failed in the first week. We had to fight to get service but when the manufacturer gave up trying to fix it we took it back and bought the tub we wanted from All Brevard Hot Tubs. We even got the new 2014 model.

We love the tub and the nice folks from All Brevard Hot Tubs.
