- Water level monitoring. Test your water level often and add additional details as needed. In the cold weather, when water levels drop too low, the components can freeze, and your hot tub could be destroyed.
- Stay clean of the rain. Make sure that your water and filters are washed and maintained on time. In the subzero weather, simple problems can become harder to fix

- Turn the jets down. Use the jets less than you would in other seasons and, when not in use, do not forget to turn them off. The jets blow air into the water, which can decrease the temperature.
