Winter Wonderland: A Guide to Caring for Your Earth Spa Hot Tub During the Chill

As winter blankets the world in its icy embrace, there’s nothing more inviting than slipping into the warm, bubbling waters of your Earth Spa hot tub. However, to ensure your winter hot tub experience remains blissful, a bit of extra care and attention are needed. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to keep your Earth Spa hot tub in top-notch condition throughout the winter months.

  1. Prepare for the Cold: Before the first snowfall, take time to prepare your Earth Spa hot tub for the winter ahead. Ensure that all components, including the cover, jets, and filters, are in good condition. Clean the filter thoroughly and inspect for any signs of wear or damage.
  2. Invest in a Quality Cover: A high-quality, well-insulated cover is your hot tub’s first line of defense against winter’s chill. Make sure your Earth Spa hot tub cover is undamaged and fits snugly to prevent heat loss. Consider using a thermal blanket underneath the cover for added insulation and energy efficiency.
  3. Regular Maintenance is Key: Winter weather may bring its fair share of challenges, but regular maintenance remains crucial. Establish a routine for cleaning the hot tub, checking chemical levels, and inspecting the water circulation system. Aim to perform these tasks at least once a week to prevent any potential issues from escalating.
  4. Monitor Water Levels: Keep a close eye on the water level in your hot tub, as winter conditions can cause evaporation. Ensure the water level is within the recommended range to maintain optimal performance. If needed, add water to the hot tub to compensate for any losses.
  5. Winterize the Plumbing: To safeguard your Earth Spa hot tub from freezing temperatures, consider winterizing the plumbing. This involves draining the hot tub and using a wet/dry vacuum to remove any remaining water from the pipes and jets. Consult your Earth Spa hot tub’s user manual for specific winterization instructions.
  6. Protect from Debris: Falling leaves, snow, and other debris can find their way into your hot tub during the winter months. Regularly clear the cover and surrounding area to prevent clogs and maintain water clarity. A leaf net or cover lifter can be helpful in keeping debris at bay.
  7. Mind the Jets: Frozen water within the jets can lead to damage, so be sure to run the jets periodically to prevent this. Additionally, check for any ice buildup around the jets and remove it gently to avoid causing harm to the hot tub components.
  8. Keep an Eye on the Temperature: While the hot tub provides a warm oasis, extreme cold can still impact its performance. Monitor the temperature regularly and adjust accordingly. Most hot tubs are designed to withstand winter conditions, but it’s always wise to be vigilant.


With a bit of proactive care and attention, your Earth Spa hot tub can be a winter haven, offering relaxation and rejuvenation even in the coldest months. By following these steps, you’ll not only ensure the longevity of your hot tub but also create a delightful winter retreat in the comfort of your backyard. Embrace the magic of winter while soaking in the warmth of your Earth Spa hot tub – a perfect combination for a season of serenity and joy.

By following these tips, you can make sure that your Earth Spa hot tub lasts as long as possible and provides you with many years of enjoyment.
