Covering your spa
If you use chlorine:
Add correct dosage of hth Spa™ Chlorinating Granules while the filter is running. Do this twice a week or as needed to maintain FAC in the range of 3-5 ppm. Blow the water out of the piping, skimmer, filter and heater.
If you use bromine:
Add correct dosage of hth Spa™ Bromine while the filter is running. Do this twice a week or as needed to maintain the bromine residual in the range of 2-4 ppm.
Ensure the pH, total alkalinity and total hardness levels are maintained in their proper ranges.
Closing your spa
If you are closing your spa, please refer to your spa manufacturer’s recommendations. However, if you no longer have this documentation available follow these steps for both chlorine and bromine:
- Drain the spa of water.
- Blow the water out of the piping, skimmer, filter and heater. If excess water is not removed from the pipes, freezing could occur, potentially causing your pipes to burst.
- Remove any remaining water that may be in the foot well or filter area.
- Remove all drain plugs, including ones that may be on your heater and replace the cover.
- Make sure your spa is unplugged and your heater is off.
