During the winter months in Arizona, it usually isn’t that cold, but definitely cold enough to keep you out of an unheated pool! There are quite a few pools in Arizona that are equipped with pool heaters in order to enjoy the water all year round. Many homes with swimming pools in Arizona also have a hot tub or jacuzzi either attached to their pool or separate in order to relax during the winter time. This is especially common in homes in the more affluent communities such as North Scottsdale and Paradise Valley.
Arizona Pool Maintenance Is Still Important in Winter!
Your pool maintenance should not be any less of a priority during the winter months compared to the summer, even though you may be using it less. Your pool water still needs to be chemically balanced in order to keep corrosion from building on the surface of the pool and the pool tile. The other component to keeping your pool sparkling and build up free is a consistent brushing of the tile and the pool walls.

Can My Arizona Jacuzzi or Hot Tub be Repaired?
Jacuzzi’s and hot tubs that are attached to a swimming pool can normally be repaired. There are a few different things that can go wrong with these items. There are the jacuzzi jets that sometimes will stop working properly or working at all. This would normally be the same element that affects the hot tub’s “bubbler” effect. In addition to that, the heater for the jacuzzi can fail for several different reasons. And one of the most annoying items that goes wrong with your hot tub is the light will go out after a while.
