Like all major hot tub manufacturers, we recommend that you drain and refill your spa three to four times per year. If you choose not to follow draining/refilling recommendations, you may encounter:
Unhealthy water conditions
Skin irritation and other skin problems
Equipment deterioration and decay
Potential voiding of warranty
Proper Winterization Proper winterization is key to ensure that your spa doesn't freeze over the winter months. Simply draining your spa is not sufficient and if anything will most assuredly result in the residual water freezing and cracking your plumbing and or fittings. Hot Shots Hot Tubs & Spas can perform your winterization and ensure that your spa will be ready to fill in the spring with no worries!
In addition, you may want (and we do recommend) to cover your spa and spa cover, after your spa is winterized. This will ensure that no water and/or debris can enter your spa. The intense wind and rain storms that have been hitting Long Island this year can lift your cover and allow water and debris to enter the spa. The debris of course can be cleaned up in the spring, but the water will cause a situation that no spa owner wants to find in the spring. This water can cause freeze-ups in your spa that can crack plumbing and jets, and can be very costly and time consuming to repair. This year we are happy to offer the Protecta-Spa cover as an affordable option to cover your spa for the winter.
Basic Winter Closing
Draining of your spa (if necessary)
Blowing out of all jet/plumbing lines
Blowing out of the air jets if equipped
Clean filter(s) with Leisure Time Instant Cartridge Cleaner and rinse for storage (*when running water is available)

Tarp - Typically lasts 1-3 season - this is a high quality tarp - not bargain basement blue.
Cable/Winch System - Used to secure tarp
Protecta Spa Cover - Typically lasts 5 - 7 years and does not require Cable/Winch System
What about the antifreeze?
Although there are pipe antifreeze products on the market; we do not recommend them because it is very difficult to fully clean out the residual antifreeze. It leaves nasty residue on your hot tub andin your water come spring. Piping antifreeze is not like car antifreeze, which is part of a closed circuit system with a pump designed to get the antifreeze everywhere it needs to be, piping antifreeze needs to be applied with great effort to assure it hits every pipe and manifold. We put that same effort into blowing the lines dry. Dry plumbing does not get freeze damage! Why spend the extra money on a product that provides NO added protection and a mess when you open your tub?
Opening Service -
• The tub is cleaned with a fast acting surface cleaner that removes tough water lines and grease build-up. • The tub is rinsed, vacuumed, and wiped down with a towel. (*when running water is available) • The shell of the tub is waxed from the waterline to the lip of the tub to protect the acrylic finish from chemical attack and fading from UV rays. • The filter cartridge is cleaned with a spray on formula to remove oil, grease, calcium, and scale formation. • The operation of the tub is checked to make sure that the heater, pumps, blower, and controls are working properly. • The water is shocked with a chemical that disinfects the water and kills any bacteria.
