For expert tips on how to keep your hot tub pipes from freezing, read on.
What Causes Hot Tub Pipes to Burst
Like the pipes in a home or commercial property, when water flows through pipes at a temperature below freezing, the water will start to expand and can put pressure on the plumbing, leading to burst pipes. In addition to the pipes themselves, burst pipes can be attributed to a number of other hot tub parts that operate within the plumbing system, including rubber O-rings, gaskets, and seals. Each of these rubber parts is designed to keep all the parts of your hot tub watertight, so it can facilitate leaks when damage occurs. To prevent this type of damage, it’s recommended you schedule hot tub maintenance with Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs.
How to Stop Your Hot Tub Pipes from Freezing
Maintaining your hot tubs with extra attention and professional support can stop burst pipes in your hot tubs. Follow these tips and contact the Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs to learn more about how you can protect your hot tub parts.
Keep the Hot Tub Running
When the temperature drops, it’s essential to maintain the hot tub at a consistent, moderate temperature even when not in use. Running the tub at a lower temperature (around 10-15°C) during colder months helps prevent the water from freezing.
Freeze Protection System
All Beachcomber hot tubs are equipped with built-in freeze protection systems that activate the pump or heater when temperatures drop to prevent freezing. To ensure this system is activated and working correctly, contact the Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs hot tub maintenance team. As an authorized Beachcomber hot tub dealer, our team is experienced and skilled with a vast selection of Beachcomber models.
Insulate Exposed Pipes
Insulating exposed pipes in hot tubs in Toronto, especially those outside the heated area or those subject to colder temperatures. This helps to retain heat and prevents freezing. Beachcomber hot tubs feature innovative insulation properties that minimize the opportunity for frozen pipes and support enhanced energy efficiency to protect the longevity of your investment as well as year-round use.
Drain the Hot Tub
If you do not plan to operate your hot tub during the cold season or for an extended period in the winter, thoroughly drain the tub, including the pipes, pumps, and heaters, and then winterize the system. At Seaway Pools & Hot Tubs, we stock a wide selection of hot tub accessories, supplies, and parts, including drain and fill kits to streamline your maintenance.
