Can you use a hot tub all year round?

Hot tubs are a luxurious addition to any home, offering relaxation, stress relief, and therapeutic benefits. One common question among hot tub owners is whether they can enjoy their hot tubs throughout the year, regardless of the season or weather conditions.

You may be excited to hear that the answer to this question is a resounding yes! Using a hot tub all year round is not only possible, but is one of the significant benefits of owning a hot tub.


Hot Tubs – Year-Round Enjoyment

One of the most appealing aspects of owning a hot tub is the ability to use it regardless of the time of year. Unlike swimming pools, which are typically seasonal and require closing during colder months, hot tubs offer year-round enjoyment. Whether it’s a crisp autumn evening, a snowy winter day, or a balmy summer night, your hot tub provides a warm and inviting oasis for relaxation and rejuvenation.


Tips for Enjoying Your Hot Tub Year Round

Here at Premier Hot Tubs, we’ve put together some top tips to help you make the most of your hot tub no matter the season.

  • Provide shelter: To maximise comfort during use and protect your hot tub from the elements, consider placing it under an awning, pergola, or other protective shelter. This not only shields the hot tub from falling debris such as leaves and branches, but also provides shelter for users during rain or snow.

  • Invest in a hot tub cover: A high-quality hot tub cover is essential for maintaining water temperature and keeping debris out of your hot tub, particularly during periods of non-use. Make sure to choose a durable cover that fits snugly over your hot tub to prevent heat loss and conserve energy.

  • Monitor water temperature: In colder months it may take longer for your hot tubs to reach the desired temperature or maintain heat due to colder ambient temperatures. Keep an eye on the water temperature and adjust the settings as needed to ensure a comfortable soak.

  • Regular maintenance: Proper maintenance is crucial for keeping your hot tub running smoothly year-round. Follow a regular cleaning and maintenance schedule, including water testing, balancing chemicals, and cleaning the filter, to keep your hot tub in optimal condition.

  • Winter-proof your hot tubs: If you live in an area with harsh winters, consider ‘winterising’ your hot tub to protect it from freezing temperatures and prevent damage. This may include draining the water, disconnecting and storing hoses, and adding antifreeze to the plumbing system.

  • Accessorise: Optimise your hot tub for year-round use with suitable accessories such as waterproof cushions, rails for holding cozy robes and towels, and steps for safe access.

One final tip for using your hot tub year round - stay safe! When using your hot tub in colder weather be mindful of slippery surfaces and take precautions to prevent slips and falls. Use non-slip mats or steps, and be cautious when entering and exiting the hot tub. In the summer months, remember to stay hydrated and take regular breaks to avoid overheating.


In conclusion, yes, you can use your hot tub all year round, and doing so allows you to reap the benefits of relaxation and stress relief regardless of the weather. By following these tips for enjoying your hot tub year-round, you can create a comfortable and inviting outdoor oasis for relaxation and rejuvenation in any season.
