Winterising your spa (Toronto hot tub):
If the spa will not be used for extended periods in a location where there is likelihood of below freezing temperatures, the spa should be prepared as follows:
- Shut off power
Drain spa of all water.
If spa is equipped with a blower, turn on power and run the blower for 10 seconds to clean the air channels of water.
Shut off the power
- Remove any remaining water with a sponge or wet dry Vacuum.
- Disconnect the inlet and outlet union to the Control Pack, and tilt the Pack, slightly to allow any remaining water to run out. Using a wet dry vacuum or similar product, vacuum any additional water out of the uncoupled lines, pack and pump heads.
- Remove the motors, pumps, electronics, and blowers and store them in a warm dry place to prevent moisture damaging the units. (Leave the TOPSIDE control in place and seal wire ends in plastic bag.
- Using a wet/dry vacuum, either suck water from each jet, and open line or blow water from each jet.
- Ensure Hose Bib (drain) is left open.
- Cover all open pipes from motors and control system with screen mesh to prevent debris from entering the system.
- Wrap spa/hot tub with hard cover (for added protection; cover spa with tarpaulin or Canadian Spa winter cover)
