It’s Fall! Dress Up Your Hot Tub for Pumpkin Spice Season

aluminum hot tub coverAs the leaves begin to change their color and the air becomes cool and crisp, it’s the perfect time to prepare your hot tub for the fall season. One thing you may consider doing is replacing hot tub covers along with adding fall touches to the hot tub area.

Fall is also the perfect time for holiday decorations – lights, blow-up figurines, gourds, and pumpkins. The aroma of the sweet cinnamon pumpkin, apple pies, and apple cider wafting through stores and kitchens reminds us that fall is here. As you are gearing up for fun in the fall, don’t forget other areas where you can dress up, especially your aquatic haven.

One of the best things about hot tubs is that you can use and enjoy them all year round, unlike swimming pools. Hot tubs can be used outdoors or indoors, too. With the temperatures cooling down, many of us would generally spend time at home after being out and about all summer. For many, fall is the “prime time” for enjoying their hot tubs. Soaking in the warm and bubbly jets of water in the cool and crisp autumn air is a relaxing and fun experience that a lot of people enjoy. 

Fall is also the perfect time to clean your hot tub and keep it in good condition. Of course, don’t forget to replace hot tub covers and add new accessories just in time for the pumpkin spice season!

Five ways to spruce up your backyard with fall maintenance and new accessories

The chilly autumn air may give you a strong urge to use your hot tub more frequently! But before you do that, take some time to spruce up your hot tub for the fall season.

1) Check your hot tub for possible leaks

The water can leak through several areas in your hot tub. While minor leaks are a nuisance in the summer, they can be a disaster in the winter, especially in regions that reach freezing temperatures. Frozen pipes can expand and burst, leading to costly repairs and less time using your spa.

Fall is the perfect time to survey your hot tub for leaks, just before winter, because it gives you enough time to make any possible repairs. Make it a point to check the basin and inside the cabinet for leaks. If there are any, get them fixed as soon as possible.

2) Drain and clean your hot tub

After emptying your hot tub of water, clean your hot tub using a gentle and non-foaming cleaning solution. Ideally, use a cleaning solution specifically made for hot tubs. This will remove any leftover dirt, fungal growth, germs, and bacteria.

3) Clean or replace your filters

Most hot tub filters, even the well-maintained ones, need to be replaced a couple of times a year. But within that time frame, regular cleaning and rinsing will help keep your filters working efficiently. Cleaning your filters by spraying them or using chemicals every three to four months is recommended. If the filters look worn and stretched, it’s time to replace them.

4) Check your cover

Hot tub covers are more than just accessories – they are the key to enjoying clean water, safety, and lower utility bills. Fall is the optimum time to check your hot tub cover for damage. When they leak, heating your tub can cost you more electricity. We make our way to colder months. If you notice cracks or splits in your vinyl cover or the spa doesn’t hold heat, replace it with a new, durable aluminum hot tub cover.

Autumn is called “fall” because of the leaves falling from trees. If you’re using your hot tub outdoors, an aluminum cover is better than a vinyl cover in protecting your hot tub from falling leaves and other debris.

5) Add accessories

A hot tub is intended to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience, whether you’re soaking solo, bonding with family, or socializing with friends. To make your hot tub experience more leisurely and enjoyable, use the following accessories:

  • Cover lift – Covering your hot tub can keep the water and heat in the hot tub and dirt and debris out. But removing the cover can be a chore. A cover lift can help ease it.
  • Steps – Steps are meant to be placed outside the hot tub, making getting in and out much easier and safer. Choose stable and durable steps with an anti-slip surface.
  • Handrail – Handrails make getting in and out of the hot tub safer and more convenient, preventing slips and falls.
  • Head and neck pillows – To support your head, neck, and back while soaking in the hot tub, get some head and neck hot tub pillows, specifically the ones that easily attach to the side of your hot tub.
  • Side table – A good side table gives you easy access to food, drinks, towels, mobile electronics, etc., as you enjoy your hot tub.
