We have made ourselves clever for you and we present the results to you in this post.


 

Conditions under which an inflatable hot tub is winterproof outdoors

 

In the manuals of most manufacturers you can read about the conditions under which the respective inflatable hot tub also in winter can be used.

The outside temperature below which a Inflatable whirlpool may no longer be used. The specifications for all manufacturers are between 4 and 5 degrees Celsius.

All temperatures below this are unsuitable for your whirlpool, as they can damage the PVC material, and in extreme cases even destroy it completely. If you do not adhere to the specifications, the manufacturer's guarantee will expire.

So that it doesn't even come to that, protect yours inflatable hot tub at an early stage, provided it is operated outdoors. According to our research, many models are not suitable for use in winter. We therefore advise against using the Inflatable whirlpool to be left outside in the cold.


 

Is it even possible to winterize an inflatable hot tub?

 

We have investigated this question, have to do with it Testimonials evaluated and came to the following results.

 

"Testimonials from some whirlpool inflatable owners are encouraging."

 

They report that they could have increased the winter resistance of their inflatable hot tubs with certain restrictions. The pools survived the winter unharmed even in frosty temperatures.
The first limitation is to drain the water after each use and to refill it with each new use of the spa.

Reason: Water has the property of expanding when it is cold. This means that the frozen water expands the material of the inflatable hot tub excessively, the plastic becomes brittle and the hot tub is damaged. A disadvantage of this option are the extremely high water and energy costs.

Another caveat consists in the use of additional protective covers. However, this option is not sufficient to compensate for the heat loss caused by the cold ambient air. Therefore, in this case too, the water must be drained off. Then the empty whirlpool can be left in the garden or on the terrace.

A third variant lies in the costly possibility of heating the water temperature very high. If the night-time temperatures only reach the limit values ​​specified by the manufacturers for a short period of time, the whirlpool can be covered. The high temperature inside is sufficient to increase the air inside the envelope by a few ° C. This is enough to keep the outer shell just above the minimum temperature.

Dismantle the whirlpool and store it in a winter-proof place.

 

As you know is a inflatable hot tub flexible to handle. Both the time and the physical effort for dismantling are relatively low. It is therefore worthwhile to think about whether a heated or temperature-controlled room is available somewhere to put the pool in Winter months to use.

A converted basement room, for example, would be an excellent option. But even a well-protected balcony can be a wonderful place in the cold season to get into the bubbly water. Dismantle the whirlpool and store it in a winter-proof place.
