Winterizing Your Spa Empty

Winter can be one of the most enjoyable times of the year to enjoy your Spa. As it is difficult to get water out of the plumbing lines, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND DRAINING YOUR SPA FOR THE WINTER. However, if you decide not to use your spa during the winter, we recommend you winterize as follows:

1) If you drain your Spa turn off the main power to the spa. Drain as completely as possible. Use a wet-vac or high pressure blower to evacuate as much water as possible. Try to get as much water out of plumbing and equipment as possible.

2) When the spa is completely empty, leave the hose bib open and open the pump drain plug located on the bottom side of the front end of the pump. Loosen all pump unions and fittings to allow air and water to expand freely within the system. This should help prevent water freezing expansion from damaging pipes and fittings. The idea is to try to eliminate any sealed areas in the system that may contain water.

Should you have a heavy snowfall during winter months Your spa is equipped with automatic freeze protection. However, a power outage can cause your spa equipment system to freeze quickly. During freezing conditions, check your spa frequently to ensure proper operation. Be sure to check your spa after any power failure to ensure the spa is operational.
