Hot Tub Safety

We are concerned about your safety. Please be informed about hot tub safety practices before you begin to use your hot tub.  Serious injuries and even death can result from improper or unsafe use. Please read the following to help ensure you, your family and friends, all have a safe and enjoyable hot tub experience.

1. Never allow water to exceed 40C (104F).

2. Limit soak time to 15 minutes at a time.

3. Use a buddy system when using hot tub and avoid using alone.

4. Do not allow children to use the hot tub without supervision and limit soak time to 10 minutes at a time and/or reduce tub temperature.

5. Never allow anyone who has been drinking alcohol or using any kinds of drugs (prescribed or illegal) to enter the hot tub.

6. Never go under water in a hot tub due to the risk of hair entanglement in suction and subsequent drowning hazard.

7. Persons with heart disease, diabetes, high or low blood pressure, any serious illness, pregnant women and any persons with any doubt should not enter a hot tub without prior consultation with a physician.

8. Persons with skin, ear, genital, or other body infections should not enter the hot tub because of the possibility of spreading the infection

9. Do not operate any electrical device within 10 meters of hot tub. Electrical shock or electrocution can occur in a hot tub if live electrical current (including current from a telephone) comes into contact with the water. Use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) on any appliance that must be near the hot tub

10. You or your guests will most likely be barefoot while near the hot tub. Use only unbreakable dishes, beverage containers, and utensils around hot tub and never use glass anywhere near or in the hot tub. Broken glass is invisible in water and extremely difficult to get out of the water circulation system.

11. To avoid a slip fall injury be sure to have a towel nearby to properly dry feet before walking in or out of hot tub.  Where possible hot tub should be placed on a non-slip surface.

12. Never use hot tub during a thunderstorm or when lightning is occurring in your area.

13. When not in use always have cover on hot tub and locked to prevent unsupervised child access and potential drowning hazard.

Your hot tub will provide you with endless amounts of enjoyment if used with great care and respect. Remember you are dealing with contained water and there is always a potential for drowning. Please use good judgement and have fun!
