Spring is right around the corner! In our neck of the woods we have surprisingly hit 60 degrees today, in mid-March and it is wonderful! It has me ready to get outside and get the yard cleaned up after the long winter and get things ready for outdoor enjoyment in the months ahead.
Here are five easy steps to get your hot tub ready for spring:
