How to winterize a hot tub!

Well, it is close to that time of the year when for whatever reason some people decide to close their hot tubs for the winter. Here is the preferred way to winterize a hot tub. We feel that winterization should be left to the pros, and when done carefully using the following instructions your risk of damage from freezing can be minimized! Please note products don’t warrant against freeze damage in a tub that has been winterized, either by the owner or by a professional service center.


From Creepy to Creative: Halloween Pool Decorating

Halloween Decorations

Halloween is an exciting time of the year for children and adults alike. Sunny’s Pools & More in Michigan loves to share how you can decorate your pool for Halloween. Decorate your in ground or above ground pool or hot tub for Halloween. Incorporate your pool or hot tub into your Halloween themed event in a way that will wow your guests.

Here are some of our ideas:

Red Pit of Hell

Drained your pool already? Add red lights at the bottom of the pool. Your pool will resemble a red pit of Hell. If you want to make it over the top, a smoke machine in combination with the lights will really put it over the top.

Bloody Pool

Add a chemical dye that will make your pool red. Also, not only will swimmers enjoy swimming in fake blood, but it is completely safe to use and non-staining.

Suspenseful Fog

Add a fog machine that will dispense fog over the pool. This will give your yard a suspenseful look. This is always a popular option with the kids.

Ancient Fun

One or two skeletons will set your party off. Place one or two skeletons in or around your pool. If you are really going for a spooky look, add some cobwebs to make the skeletons appear as if they have been there for a long time. The skeletons can go on flotation devices in the pool, patio chairs or just lounge poolside.

Hot Tub of Doom For Halloween

Make your hot tub or Jacuzzi look satanic by placing candles all around it and adding red pool dye. Your hot tub will look like a boiling pot of blood within minutes with your new accessories. Stop by any of your local Sunny’s locations for more tips on how to decorate your hot tub or pool for the holidays!

Difference Between Hot Tubs or Spas

*Revision note 2017: Viscount West is now Sunny’s Pools & More*

Did you know that hot tubs and spas are not the same? Both hot tubs and spas are very relaxing. Both make great additions to your home especially if you are looking into increasing the value of your home. Don’t let the label of hot tub or spa determine your purchase. Choose your hot tub or spa based on the features. Learn about the differences between a spa and hot tub below.

Historical Differences Between a Hot Tub and a Spa

Hot Tub

Most modern day hot tubs are constructed from different types of wood. Hot tubs can be made from oak, teak, cedar, cypress, or redwood.  Even though every hot tub is not made of wood, chances are that if it is made of wood, it is a hot tub.  Another key difference between a hot tub and spa is the way the water enters into the hot tub. Hot bubbling water enters into the tub from under and around the seats.


Spas are made of materials other than wood. Also, Spas are made of molded plastic, acrylic, cement, or fiberglass. Built-in seats and water jets are characteristics of spas. Water enters into spas through the floor and seats, unlike hot tubs.

Today, hot tubs and spas are being built very similar and a number of differences between them is shrinking. Pick your hot tub or spa according to the amenities that you want.

Things to consider before a hot tub purchase:

  • How many people does my tub need to fit?
  • What amenities must my tub have?
  • Is my tub going inside or outside my house?
  • Am I going to have my tub built in or do I want to keep it portable?

Viscount Pools West is your hot tub retailer in Michigan for all of your hot tubs needs. We also carry pool tables or pool equipment. We have five locations to best serve you. Get the good times rolling and contact Viscount Pools West today.
