The kids are out of school, and vacation days are coming. What do you do with your hot tub? Fairly new hot tub owners might be a little lost as to what to do with a hot tub before leaving on a summer vaca. Whether you leave for a couple days or a couple weeks, it’s important to leave your hot tub well taken care of before your departure for a peace of mind.
Shock and treat your water! Make sure your spa’s pH levels are balanced and that your water is visibly clean. Spa covers do wonders to keep your water maintained at your preference. Before leaving, make sure to give your filters a rinse so that the filtration cycles don’t have any issues during your departure.
Temperature matters! No matter the length of your vacation, heat and filtration cycle must stay on. If you are leaving for a couple days during summer, the rule-of-thumb is to lower your tub by 5-10 degrees, anything lower than that and your hot tub will work harder to get your temperature back up at your return. If you are leaving during winter, you may want to consider lowering the temperature less, but keep in mind that you won’t be saving much and wont be able to enjoy your hot tub immediately on your return. During summer, heat from the floor will radiate and help keep your hot tub warm so it isn’t as necessary to toggle with the temperature as it is in winter.
Do not drain your hot tub! It would be more costly to refill and reheat an entire hot tub than to keep the heat and filtration cycle on.
This summer is geared up to be a scorcher! A 102° hot tub will probably not sound as appealing as it does right now. However, there are ways to make this summer A HOT TUB SUMMER. There are certain things you can do to enjoy you spa this summer without overheating your body. Just keep reading to find out how:
Normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, anything cooler than that will automatically feel refreshing. Setting your hot tub’s temperature around 90° would be a nice way to cool down in your hot tub. Remember, you don’t want to disconnect your tub as it needs to continue filtrating. Idle water inside the pipes could also cause corrosion which can then lead to bigger problems.
If you don’t want to lower your hot tub temperature, another option is to hot tub at night. Summer nights are usually much cooler, and you’ll be able to actually enjoy a warm hot tub instead of bearing the heat from the sun and the tub as well.
It’s not too late for that summer body! Anyone who has been in a spa before is familiar with the relaxing effects of hydrotherapy. The heat from your spa increases blood flow and promotes deep muscle relaxation, increasing your flexibility. Try hot tub yoga from Cal Spas. Hot Tub Yoga, as demonstrated by professional yoga instructor Kelly Deva, will stretch and soothe sore muscles, while straightening and targeting specific muscle groups.
A hot tub is an investment that should be enjoyed year-round, not just 2/3 of the year. Make these simple adjustments to help you stay cool all summer long.

Quick Spa Parts is offering FREE SHIPPING on Spa Covers, 8′ or smaller. Now is the perfect time to get the perfect fit spa cover to keep your spa clean and save you time and money over time. The hot tub cover serves three major purposes:
Protecting Your Tub
When you are not enjoying your tub it is important to keep the cover on to help keep debris out of the water. Depending on the placement and weather in your area, sticks, pine cones, leaves and other debris can fall into your tub and cause damage to the shell or filtration system.
A tight fitting cover creates a tight seal and locks in heat. Heat retention means using less energy to heat the water.
With a properly fitted cover, securely installed you can rest easy that your children and/or pets are not getting in without you noticing.
A proper and diligent spa cover care routine can be the difference between needing to buy a replacement cover in 5 years instead of 6 years. If your spa cover needs replacing, now is the perfect time to find a new high-quality hot tub cover that will save you time and money over time.

Summer means you will be spending a lot of time in the great outdoors and in your very own backyard. Now that you know how to best use your hot tub during summer, why not transform your patio? The ambiance has an overall effect of your experience, transforming your patio by giving it a little TLC will make sure the memories your create this summer will be great ones.
First thing’s first, make sure to clean your patio! Start the season by power washing your deck or patio to give it a fresh feel. Once the cleaning is taken care of:
Check your greenery. By this point in the year, your shrubs and grass are either doing great or might be in need for some loving. Trim and water your plants if needed, and check for any critter problems. During this drought it is recommended to limit you watering to twice a week, however that is plentiful to keep your greenery green. Remember to water deeper and less often to strengthen the grass roots to better survive the drought!
Add some color to your patio with container gardening! Add hanging plants or potted flowers for easy gardening. Most containers have a large reservoir of water to limit the need of maintenance. Flowers are a very cost-effective way to beautify your patio with minimal effort.
See the light! Add solar powered lightning options to your backyard which turn on automatically at dusk. Solar powered lighting is available in smaller sizes to large lanterns, choose one to fit your outdoor decor and needs. Add a festive touch to your backyard! Not only will this increase your visibility at night, but will also add a mystic feel to your backyard or patio. Tip: shop for these online, usually come in larger quantities at a cheaper price!

Many people needlessly discontinue the use of their spas when the summer temperatures rise because twice the heat might be a little unbearable.
Although it may sound like a contradiction in terms, your spa hot tub may actually be the best place to cool-off in the Summer heat. Find out how to make the most out of your hot tub during Summer below.
Take a Dip to Cool Off During a Heat Wave
To use your spa in “cool-water mode”, simply reduce the temperature setting to 85F or less (or turn your heater completely off) and enjoy! With the cover off and air jets running, your water temperature will quickly drop. To maintain cooler water, keep your spa covered during sunny days when not in use. Run the spa with the spa cover open and with water features and air jets operating during cooler evening temperatures. This action together with natural evaporation will cool the water!
Since water heats more slowly than the outside air, the insulated spa will maintain its lower temperature from evening into the following day. And unlike an in-ground pool, a covered, insulated portable spa will not be absorbing radiant heat from direct sunlight during the day, or from a surrounding concrete thermal mass after sundown.
Water balance and other products you use are maintained exactly the same as with hot water. In fact, some sanitizers work somewhat better at cooler temperatures to keep your spa water in the best condition. Just uncover, take a dip and enjoy.
Since you will be running your spa heater either at a reduced temperature setting, or completely off during hot weather spells, you will be saving energy in the long-run, meaning your cost of operation will be greatly reduced.
So when the temperature soars, make good use of your valuable equipment investment. Enjoy your spa in “cool-water mode”. You’ll feel refreshed and smarter for enjoying your hot…or should I say COOL, tub year-round.

All pools, spas, and ornamental fountains/ponds shall be equipped with a recirculation pump and shall be constructed to be leak-proof. Pool and hot tub draining and refilling shall be allowed only for health, maintenance, or structural considerations.
Water should not be applied to outdoor landscapes in a manner that causes runoff such that water flows onto adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots, or structures.
Automatic shut-off devices should be attached on any hose or filling apparatus in use.
Refrain from washing streets, parking lots, driveways, or sidewalks, except as necessary for health, aesthetic or sanitary purposes.

If you are a spa owner then you probably know all the things you should do in and around the tub, like issues of safety, care and maintenance. However, this guide will help you by letting you know things not do in a hot tub.
1. Don’t Let Sand or Dirt Get Into the Hot Tub
It could mess up the filter, among other things. Do, however, take steps to prevent the intrusion of sand and dirt into the spa.
2. Don’t Enter if You Have an Open Sore
Persons with open sores or any type of infection should not use the spa. The hot water is an ideal environment for spreading infection, especially if sanitizer levels are not properly maintained.
3. Don’t Use Alcohol or Drugs
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but drinking and hot tubbing are not a good mix. Despite all of those movies scenes we’ve seen with characters cavorting in hot tubs with a bottle or glass of their favorite beverage in hand, physicians don’t recommend it. Sports stars and politicians have been known to imbibe while entertaining in a spa, but that doesn’t mean we should follow their example. Same with medications — check with your doctor before soaking in extremely hot water while taking a prescription.
4. Don’t Raise Your Water Temperature Above 104°
Keep your spa water temperature no higher than 104°F. Higher temperatures can place undue strain on the cardiovascular system. Be sure to accurately monitor the temperature.
5. Don’t Let Children Use the Hot Tub Alone
Children must not be permitted to use the spa without adult supervision for obvious reasons.
6. Don’t Open the Electrical Box
There are no user serviceable parts inside.
7. Don’t Jump or Dive Into a Hot Tub
Regardless of its size, never jump or dive into a spa or hot tub. Climb in carefully; do not allow any horseplay.
8. Don’t Use a Spa or Hot Tub That Doesn’t Have a Compliant Drain Cover
You may have or have not read much about anti-entrapment drain covers, which every public swimming pool, spa and hot tub in the United States is supposed to have been equipped with by December 20, 2008, and every residential pool, spa or hot tub should have installed.
9. Don’t Use the Hot Tub During a Storm
Never use your spa during extreme weather conditions (i.e. electrical storms, tornados, hurricanes etc.)
