Did you know that there is a right and a wrong way to get rid of your hot tub water?

Doing it the wrong way not only harms aquatic environments but can also result in large fines! In many provinces and territories, hot tub water is classified as grey water – like the water that drains from showers, bathtubs, and washing machines. Be sure to check with your municipal bylaws, provincial building codes, or your public health unit to verify the regulations in your area for the safest way to dispose of your hot tub water. Some municipalities may even have this information on their website.
