The temperatures are starting to cool, and if you’re a pool owner, you know that means it’s closing season. However, fall and winter mean just the opposite if you’re a hot tub owner! These are prime seasons to get the most use out of your hot tub, but in order to keep it running smoothly, there are some accessories that you can’t be without. Below we cover the must-haves that will allow you and your family to keep the fun and relaxation going even as the temperatures drop. 

Stay covered
A high-quality hot tub cover is a must! A good cover will help your hot tub conserve heat even as the temperatures drop. This allows for more energy efficiency–and lower utility bills! If you’re planning to use your hot tub all year around, and it’s time for a replacement cover, you might want to consider treating yourself to an automated Covana cover. The Covana hot tub cover is your key to happiness! Imagine being able to access your hot tub with the simple turn of a key without ever again having to struggle with opening a cover or removing snow, ice or other debris?

Get a lift
If you don’t treat yourself to a Covana cover, you won’t want to be without a cover lifter! This product is especially handy if you’ll be using your hot tub often. No one wants to stand out in the cold struggling to lift a heavy cover. A cover lifter does the work for you, so you can remove and replace your cover with ease. We carry several styles at Pettis Pools, stop in today to learn more.
Change it up
Your filter(s) that is! While you should be regularly cleaning the filters in your hot tub all year around, the start of a new season is the perfect time to make the switch. Regular filter changes will help keep your hot tub clean and will make maintenance and upkeep easier.

You don’t have to be a scientist to make sure you have the right balance of chemicals in the water to keep things clean and pure!

Be ready to relax and entertain
A hot tub provides the perfect oasis during the chilly months to escape from the cold and relax. Extra accessories like a spa caddy and a towel holder can make the experience even more enjoyable whether you’re entertaining friends or simply taking a dip after work to unwind. A spa caddy will allow you to keep drinks at hand and having a towel holder nearby that can hold towels or robes will make that transition from hot tub to chilly air much more manageable.
