How to Drain Your Spa For Storage for the Summer:
Your spa was likely designed to drain well when you use the built-in drain. But several areas may not drain well so you need to give them attention.
First, remove the left over water inside the spa after draining. Open access panel. (spa power should be off)
Second, depending on your spa, you have 1-3 pumps to be concern about. On each pump loosen the front fitting where the pump mates with the spa plumbing. On some pumps you will see a knob drain valve below the front fitting. This is there to allow remaining water to drain. Loosen or remove.
On smaller circulation pumps you have to pull the hose off the front of the pump. Also good to remove as much water from the pipes as you can. A wet vacuum can be used to suck the remaining water out of the pump.
Third, the heater. Loosen one or both fittings to the heater to allow the water to drain. If you find no water dripping out when you loosen, shake the connection to break a possible seal to allow water to drain.
The above should drain and dry the most important parts of your spa during the summer months.
