Enjoy a Cooler Soak

You can either turn off your heater completely or lower the temperature of the hot tub to around 85°F (29° C). Leave the air jets running to circulate the cool water throughout the hot tub efficiently and quickly. Leave the cover on when not using it to stop the sun from warming the water during the day.
