Customer Question
We have a Maxx...

We have a Maxx spa hot tub and need to winterize it. Do you have any tutorials available? We are in a romote area of the Poconos Mountains in PA and cannot find anyone who could do it for us and garauntee the work.

Contractor's Assistant: Who manufactured the spa?

This winter we thought maybe we could do it ourselves

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, the pool company we have used in the past no longer does it.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The hot tub is made by Maxx Spas

Hello… Thank you for using Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.

From the information you’ve provided, I will try to find a quick and simple solution to your specific question. All my responses are designed to be helpful, insightful, and any guidance or suggestions are based from the information you have provided on your post above, with the intent of trying to save you time, money, and headaches.

I have found in many cases it has always been better if we can establish an effective way to communicate, since either of us may have additional information or questions, that may be necessary in resolving the problem your experiencing, and uploading clear photos will greatly help us both.

After I have completed my research and provided my response to your question, all I ask in return is that you quickly and favorably complete the 5 Star Rating when it appears, so I may receive full credit for my answer, advice and recommendations. I appreciate your understanding and cooperation of this request.

Please note that I may not be able to resolve this problem, especially if it becomes necessary for a qualified service provider to be contacted to perform additional testing, diagnosing, or troubleshooting.

Is there any additional information you would like to add that was not mentioned before?
