How often do I drain my spa?
Sunbelt Spas recommends that you drain and refill your hot tub every 120 days. Do not hesitate to drain the spa more frequently if needed or wanted. (If water becomes difficult to clean, gritty due to large dirt deposits, clouded with body oils and any other situation that results in hard to maintain water chemistry) See your owner’s manual on complete instructions on draining and filling your Sunbelt Spa.

Where can I put my spa?
Deciding where to locate your hot tub should include factors like safety, privacy, esthetics and cost. Below we have included some recommendations for you to utilize when preparing for your upcoming installation.
Anytime you plan to place a permanent structure like your slab and/or deck we recommend mapping the space out and looking at it from every angle of the yard to ensure your final product will be to your liking. The easiest way to do it is to utilize rope to outline or tarp to signify the spot your hot tub will sit, then perform the following:
1.) Ensure there are no overhead power lines above where the spa will be located. Ten (10’) feet is the guideline for the distance from your spa to any electrical lines, electrical outlets and electrical components. Must meet local, state and federal codes.
2.) Review the layout of the spa you have purchased and decide which direction you would like to face the spa. Your view from your favorite seat should be one you want to see each time you are relaxing in the spa.
3.) Privacy when spending time in your hot tub should also play a part in your plan. Remember that the privacy given by plants and trees changes with the seasons.
4.) Level surface is required for the spa to operate properly. Improperly leveled surface can result in water distribution changes and will void warranty.

Due to the expansive nature of water in its solid form of ice we recommend the hot tub winterization process to be preformed by a spa technician or professional service technician. We have outlined below the standard procedures for winterization but should remind you that cold weather provides some of the most enjoyable hot water settings throughout the year. Damages to your hot tub if winterized improperly will result in severe damage to components and is not covered under Sunbelt Spas warranty.
Due to fluxes of electrical codes and individual installation requirements throughout our customer base you are required to get accurate electrical guidelines and requirements from your local Sunbelt Spas authorized dealers. Most 8’ and under Sunbelt spas require a 60 amp dedicated GFCI breaker and you can contact Sunbelt Spas directly to get further information.
