Energy costs are a concern many hot tub owners have. While most hot tub brands nowadays, including Jacuzzi®, are turning to energy-efficient models, hot tub owners still find themselves using way too much water in their hot tub. If this sounds like you, try these 3 ways to conserve hot tub water in summer.
Cover Your Hot Tub
It may seem simple, but one of the best ways to conserve hot tub water in summer is to keep the cover on when you’re not using it. While this is true all year long, it is especially true in summer. This is because of the basic principles of evaporation we all learned in elementary school. If it’s hot outside and there’s more sunshine, the water in your hot tub is going to evaporate faster. The only way to keep it from evaporating is to put the hot tub cover on and make sure it is on securely when you are not using the hot tub. If it’s not, then your hot tub water will more than likely evaporate, and you’ll have to replace the water more often.
Check for Leaks
In the heat of summer, it can be difficult to find leaks in your hot tub because there is so much water on the ground — whether it’s from rain, water gun fights, or your hot tub itself. But, if you’re losing water from your hot tub and you’re not sure why, you should probably take a closer look. Leaks are a sneaky way that you can easily lose water from your hot tub, and they are bad for your hot tub in the long run. If you think you may have a leak but aren’t sure, request spa service so a technician can take a closer look.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Okay, reduce and recycle may not apply here, but it was necessary for the alliteration. If you’re wanting to conserve your hot tub water but aren’t actually losing any to evaporation or leaks, you can reuse the water! Plants love used hot tub water — just not with chemicals. Let your hot tub water sit for at least three days without adding any chemicals to it. Then, scoop out some water to give to your plants. Of course, you can’t use the hot tub yourself when it’s not being treated with chemicals. So, this is a great idea to implement if you’re going on vacation or are super busy. Once you get back and have time to water your plants, your hot tub water should be safe for them.
