The pump should be inside the spa. If your pump’s outflow hose is not long enough to reach a drain, connect it to a garden hose. The water should run for a few minutes after the pump is turned on.
If you don’t have a pump, you can use a hose to fill a bathtub with water. Fill the tub with about 1/2 inch of water and place the hose over the drain. The water will drain out of the tubing and into the bath.
How often should I drain my Softub?
You should drain and refill your spa every three months. This can be accomplished with a standard shower head. The amount of time it takes for your spa to fully dry is dependent on many factors, including the type of water you use, the temperature of the water, and the humidity of your home. We recommend draining and refilling your Spa once a month.
What is the fastest way to empty a hot tub?
The fastest way to drain a hot tub is to use a submersible pump. The flow rate of the pump affects the speed at which the hot tub is drained.
If you choose one that can remove up to 30 gallons of water per minute (1,800 gallons per hour), you won’t have to wait for the water to cool down before you can drain the tub. If you’re using a pump, you’ll want to make sure that you have the right type of pump and that it has a high-flow rate.
If you don’t know what type you need, check with your local plumbing supply store.
How do you winterize a Softub?
Softubbers who want to winterize their Softubs should detach the power pack and hold it so the plumbing is facing the ground in order to let all the water drain out.
How do I completely drain my hot tub?
The pump needs to be turned on to let the spa drain. When the hot tub is empty, turn off the pump, remove it from the spa, and dispose of it in a trash can.
How do I clean the inside of my Softub hot tub?
First, wipe the area clean with a damp washcloth; doing so will remove any build-up. Next, wipe the area clean with a mixture of baking soda and water. When the tub is drained, use a soft soap and sponge to remove the tough stains.
Can I drain my hot tub on my lawn?
Chlorine and bromine are harmful chemicals that can kill your grass and make your lawn discolored. Run your hose or drain away from the grass and vegetation and away from the foundation of your house. If you have a pool, make sure that the water is not too hot or too cold.
If it’s too warm, it will not be able to evaporate enough water to keep your pool clean. Too cold, and the pool will be too hard to clean, which can lead to mold and mildew growth.
