Winterising Your Hot Tub
For us, there is no better feeling than soaking in the Hot Tub in the crisp winter air – it’s so refreshing and relaxing at the same time! However, using your Hot Tub in the Winter is not for everyone, so we’re here to talk about winterising your Hot Tub!
Why Winterise your Hot Tub?
While hard-shell Hot Tubs can be used all year-round, some families prefer to keep their Hot Tub as a Summer-only activity. It’s not hard to see why some people choose this – you’re out in the garden more often in the Summer, kids are off school, the nights are longer… sounds great right?
If you’re not going to use your Hot Tub during the colder months, proper winterisation is vital. If you leave the water in over winter (this includes in the pipework), you’re leaving yourself open to a hefty repair bill in the Spring. Frozen water in the pipework will damage the internal plumbing!
How to Winterise your Hot Tub
Winterising your Hot Tub can be a risky game if you’re not 100% sure what you’re doing. If you don’t get all the water out, you’ll risk damaging the internal plumbing.
If you’re going to winterise your Hot Tub, we recommend getting a professional in to winterise your Hot Tub properly.
Should you Winterise your Hot Tub?
Coast Spas are Canadian-made Hot Tubs, that are designed to withstand the cold UK Winters while keeping running costs low. They are made to be left running all day, every day – even through winter!
If you’re leaving for an extended period over Winter (such as a few months) and cannot check on your Hot Tub, it is probably best to get it winterised.
Not winterising your Hot Tub also means you can use your Hot Tub whenever you want and even try soaking in the Winter – trust me, once you’ve tried it, you’ll use your Hot Tub more in the Winter than the Summer!
Most damage occurs to Hot Tubs from improper winterisation. While you can have a go at winterising your Hot Tub yourself, we recommend getting a professional winterisation and avoid an expensive repair. Or, skip the winterisation entirely and enjoy a relaxing Winter soak in your Hot Tub!

Compact size means they can fit into a lot of gardens
Regular exercise has many physical and mental health benefits, helping to avoid stress & burnout for busy professionals.
In an ever-increasingly fast-paced world, it can be hard to find time for your health and wellness. Learn how a Swim Spa can help you stick to a routine without affecting your busy schedule!
We all know we should be exercising a few times a week, but truthfully, how many of us can say we consistently make time for it? With a Swim Spa, you can easily fit a workout in around your schedule, meaning you can get back to your other commitments faster!
Reason #1: Swim Spas Take up Less Time
Forget commuting to the gym, finding a parking spot, and fighting for a locker; just walk out to your garden, switch on the jets and get to working out. There’s no waiting for a swimming lane to become free either; there’s one lane and it’s always reserved for you. By taking up less time, you’re more likely to stick to your fitness goals and maintain your health and wellness!
Reason #2: You’re in control
Ever turned up to the fitness centre to find the pool is closed for maintenance, or the group swimming times have unexpectedly changed? Have you ever gone on to find another fitness centre for your workout or did you just turn round and go back home?
Swim Spas will still require maintenance from time to time, but you’re in control of when that is. Plan for maintenance to occur on a rest day, so you never miss a workout.
Reason #3: Everything You Need is in One Place
It is recommended that adults undertake moderate intensity aerobic exercise weekly, but that you should also be strength training alongside that. Swim Spas allow you to do both!
Get your aerobic exercise in with a swimming session, and then use the resistance of the water to build you strength with compatible equipment such as row bars, resistance bands or even dumbbells.
Once you’ve done with your workout, you can cool down in the dedicated hydrotherapy section of your swim spa. These are also great for your recovery days, as the hydrotherapy massage jets sooth repairing muscles and give you a great endorphin boost.
Reason #4: They’re accessible to anyone
Forget needing a 2-acre estate to fit a swim spa in, there are a lot of compact swim spa models to choose from that you can fit into most gardens!
If you have an unforgiving schedule but still want to make time for your health and well-being, Swim Spas are the perfect investment. We have a range of 15 different Swim Spa models starting from £13,795 in varying sizes so you can be sure we have the perfect model for you.

New Research: Getting into Hot Water is Good for You!
Research has found that soaking in hot water 90 minutes before going to bed improves sleep quality. Discover why Hot Tubs are so important & how to use them in your night-time routine.
Recent research from scientists at the University of Texas at Austin has found that soaking in hot water 90 minutes before going to bed helps you get a better night’s sleep. So, what’s the science behind this?
By soaking in a Hot Tub 90 minutes before bed, you perfectly align what’s called your Circadian rhythm. This means that your body will be cooling down at exactly the time that you will be getting into bed, helping you to relax and fall into a deeper sleep. According to the researchers, “The temperature cycle leads the sleep cycle and is an essential factor in achieving rapid sleep onset and high efficiency sleep.”
How important is Good-Quality Sleep?
I’m sure that everyone clutching a cup of coffee at 9am every morning will already know how important a good night’s sleep is, but it’s also so much more than that!
Improve Attention & concentration
Getting enough high-quality sleep will keep your mind focused and sharp – being vitally important for big decisions, driving, or operating heavy machinery.
You need sleep to rest and rebuild your mind as well as your body. While you sleep, your brain will organise and process all the information you have taken on over the day, converting them into long-term memories.
Reduce Blood Pressure
Before you wake up, your body will increase your blood pressure to prepare you. If you’re kept awake too often, your body cannot compensate for this rise in blood pressure, so it may remain higher than usual – increasing your risk for stroke and coronary heart disease.
How do Hot Tubs improve sleep?
We all know that Hot Tubs are literally tubs of hot water, being perfectly equipped to align your circadian rhythm for better sleep. That’s not the only way Hot Tubs can help you get a better kip!
With strategically placed water jets, our Hot Tubs are designed with the ultimate massage in mind. By receiving regular hydrotherapy massage, you relieve muscular tension to keep you comfortable while you sleep.
Having been used for centuries, aromatherapy has many reported physical & mental health benefits. Lavender has long been known for calming your mind and relieving stress, as well as Chamomile. By clearing your mind before you go to bed, you will drift off into a better night’s sleep.
Relax in a lounger
Before you drift off to dreamland, spend your evening soak in a Hot Tub lounger for maximum relaxation!
To find the right lounger for you, make sure you wet test your preferred model. Loungers come in all shapes and sizes so it’s important to find the right fit for your body type, so you don’t float out of the seat.
Sleep is vital to proper mental and physical function – ensure you get the best possible night’s sleep with a regular evening Hot Tub soak 90 minutes before bed!

Susan Smith of Stirchley, Birmingham loves her new Baroness Hot tub
We asked Susan why she chose the Regency Baroness Hot Tub and her thoughts on her experience with us here at Award Leisure Birmingham
We had been thinking of getting a Hot Tub for some time as our garden is totally private. One of my daughters was especially keen so I started to research online and found that Award Leisure Birmingham was my nearest Hot Tub store.
As you can see from the photos, my patio area is quite narrow and so would not be suitable for a square or round Hot Tub. I saw the Baroness on your web site and checking the measurements knew straight away that it would be perfect for my patio area. Reading the specifications online, I could see that it was of excellent quality and so I decided to visit your store.
