Hot Tubs do's and Don'ts
Hot Tubs can be a very enjoyable way to spend time and make memories with friends and family when used in a responsible manner. Please read through these health and safety notes to ensure you and your guests are kept safe.
- NEVER use a hot tub when under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- ALWAYS use the hot tub with the cover fully removed.
- ALWAYS follow the instructions as per the manufacturers labelling on chemicals.
- ALWAYS be cautious when getting in, or out of, a hot tub, do so with care and do not run, to avoid slips, trips and falls.
- DO NOT put your head underwater in a hot tub, or allow another bather to do so. The high water temperature can potentially lead to loss of consciousness.
- DO NOT use a hot tub with a water temperature higher than 40ºC.
- NEVER allow children below the age of 5 years old to use a hot tub.
- DO NOT use glass in or around the spa as broken glass cannot be seen in a body of water. In the event of broken glass entering the hot tub, evacuate the tub and drain down, call your supplier in order to ascertain what to do next.
- ALWAYS Keep all chemicals supplied in the container, out of reach of children and kept dry.
- DO NOT put chemicals into the water when other people are in the spa.
- DO NOT MIX THE CHEMICALS
It is recommended to bathe with at least one other person in a hot tub, in the event that if one person gets into any difficulty, the other can assist or raise the alarm. The elderly or infirm should not be left alone in a hot tub, and children should never be allowed to use a hot tub without constant adult supervision.
