Hot Tub Buying Guide

How to use the drain plug

Your hot tub has a drain plug to help with the removal of the water from the tub. You will need to empty the tub of water to clean it thoroughly. You may want to empty the tub in the winter if you are unable to use the tub in freezing temperatures, though we highly recommend a good hot soak in the cold winter months. Seems such a waste to have to close up the tub, just when the winter weather comes. Nothing better than a hot soak in the snow. But, now back to the business of using the drain plug.

Check your instruction manual for your manufacturer's recommendations on how to use the drain plug. Each tub varies, so be sure to know your hot tub and, please, don't force anything that doesn't want to move. It would be a shame to break something on the tub just because you didn't first stop to check out how to do it correctly.

The drain plug is simple to use. Remove the cap by twisting in counterclockwise. There may be a drainage tube that extends out. Attach a garden hose to the drain plug and place the end of the hose where you want the water to flow. This will be downhill from the hot tub and can be a way to give some plants a drink. Just be sure to put the end of the hose in an area that you want water to go. This is especially important if it's cold out. You don't want to create an ice patch in a well traveled area. You may need to push the drainage tub back into the tub to start the water flowing out of the tub. Keep the hose attached until gravity has done its job and all the water has flowed out of the tub.

Disconnect the hose and replace the drain plug cap. Now you can do what you need to do with your empty tub. Clean it, repair it, whatever you need to. Then fill it back up and prepare that water so it's ready for your soak.
