How To Prepare Your Hot Tub Before A Vacation

Heading off for a Spring Break getaway? The preparation checklist can sometimes feel a little daunting. Shopping, packing, and prepping always takes longer than we expect, and suddenly getting the house totally set for any sort of absence turns into a mad dash!

So what should you do as a hot tub owner to keep your home spa maintained and ready for your return? It’s much simpler than you might expect.

Here’s a quick crash course on getting your tub prepped

Short Vacation

For short vacations that are under seven days, preparing your hot tub is super straightforward.

  1. Test and balance the alkalinity and hardness level of your water
  2. Clean your filter thoroughly or just replace it with a clean one while you’re away
  3. Add an appropriate amount of sanitizer to your floating dispenser
  4. Shock your water with sanitizer before you leave

Be sure to secure your cover with hurricane straps. Along with securing your hot tub and keeping dirt from entering your water, this will lower your electricity costs by trapping in the steam.

Long Vacation

For longer vacations of over 7 days, it’s extremely important that you take the time to prepare your hot tub correctly.

  1. Test and balance the alkalinity and hardness level of your water
  2. Clean your filter thoroughly or just replace it with a clean one while you’re away
  3. Add an appropriate amount of sanitizer to your floating dispenser. If you can, ask a neighbour to come by every few days to add in a few apporopriate chemicals.
  4. Shock your water with sanitizer before you leave
  5. Drop the temperature of your hot tub to the lowest possible setting to cut down on electricity costs

 

By following these simple steps, you’ll have a happy, healthy hot tub when you return.

So even if you’re a big traveler, owning and maintaining a hot tub should never keep you from going on new adventures. Just do the proper preparation and you’ll have your own private vacation you can escape to every single day ready in your own backyard when you return.
