    Spa Closing

    We recommend year-round enjoyment of your hot tub, but if you are going to winterize it, we highly suggest you let our professionals do it for you. Improper winterization is the number one reason for crackled plumbing lines-leading to a very costly repair not covered under warranty. We guarantee your hot tub against freeze damage for a period of 6 months.

    Price - $300 (+ tax) for a 1-pump system $50 for each additional pump **within 30 miles of either store location.

    Is there anything you'd like us to know or do you need anything additional brought to your closing?

    Thank you for choosing Pettis Pools & Patio!
