Freeze damage can easily occur in hot tubs that are not winterized properly or if power to the hot tub is disrupted. This guide outlines how freeze damage can be prevented and what options are available after freeze damage occurs.
There are nearly 6 million residential hot tubs and spas currently in operation in the United States, according to The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals. Over half of these hot tubs are installed in northern states, where temperatures fall below freezing much of the winter. Without proper winterization, residential hot tubs can easily freeze and cause extensive and costly damage.
