How to Get Your Pool Ready for Winter

With winter coming, now is the time for homeowners to consider closing their pool for the season. Ideally, this should be done well before the really cold weather sets in, to lower the risk of the pool and its accoutrements being subject to freeze damage. The best time to start closing up the pool is when the water is below 60F.

How Much Does a Hot Tub Cost in Reno?

Your quick guide to local hot tub prices

Hot Tub by Bullfrog Spas at sunsetWe hear it all the time: “What is the price of your hot tubs?” Or sometimes it’s asked more generally, “How much do hot tubs cost?”

It’s understandable. Hot tub prices aren’t usually published online and people aren’t always familiar with pricing of hot tubs or the product category in general.
