Cold Water Mode
If you live somewhere that is really hot, especially in the summer, then you may not want the added heat that comes with a hot tub spas. But that doesn’t mean you won’t get great use out of your hot tub. Simply turn the water down to 85 degrees or turn the heater off completely and allow the water to cool to the air temperature around it. Then you essentially have a small pool that you can relax in and enjoy on those hot summer days.
Cold water mode isn’t always a good idea if you live somewhere that gets very cold, especially in the winter time. If the temperatures drop very low where you live and your hot tub is outside, the freezing temperatures could cause the water inside your hot tub and your tub’s plumbing to freeze. This can damage your tub and the pipes inside it causing leaks and busted pipes when it begins to thaw. If you live in these areas, you will want to heat your hot tub and make sure that it can maintain a temperature that is warm enough to prevent the pipes from freezing. If you want to enjoy your tub during those cold months, you will also want to heat it much warmer so you are comfortable in the hot tub even on the coldest of nights.
