Hot Tubs are fun, therapeutic and provide lots of benefits in all facets of life. While your private retreat or much needed time to connect with loved ones is priceless, there are some safety tips we recommend following for you and your family to safely enjoy your spa.
Proper Ventilation Indoor spas should be ventilated naturally or mechanically (i.e., an exhaust fan). If you begin to experience a sore throat or sensitivity improve the ventilation of your area (open windows, install exhaust fan, etc.)
Temperature — Keep your spa water less than 104°F.
Medical Conditions — Consult your physician before using a spa. Persons with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or other cardiovascular conditions need to take extra measures for their hot tub therapy.
Shower First — To reduce the likelihood of contaminating spa water and to minimize health risks, always shower with soap and water prior to use.
Infection Spreading – Anyone with open sores or any type of infection should not use the spa. Hot water spreads infection, especially if sanitizer levels are not properly maintained.
Child Safety — Children should not be permitted to use the spa without adult supervision.
Pregnancy — Please consult your physician before using a spa.
Long Hair – It is suggested to tie long hair back to keep it away from the filter intake and drain. Here are some hair style ideas.
Electrical Appliances — Avoid electrical devices while using a spa.
Severe Weather – Keep apprised of severe weather conditions and avoid spa usage during electrical storms, tornadoes, etc. You can keep tabs of updates and weather conditions or download an app of a local news channel.
