As with any water based activity, safety is paramount to minimise the risk of injury or drowning and your hot tub is no different, however used correctly a hot tub can provide hours of enjoyment and relaxation for all the family.

Covering Your Hot Tub

Covering Your Hot Tub

Covering your spa is important especially where the hot tub is built into the ground, it prevents the chance of falling in and are easy to fit. Most hot tubs allow you to lock the control panel, locking the control panel allows you to have control over who and when people can use the spa.

Getting into your hot tub also provides a few chances for injury, so we highly recommend the use of steps with slip resistant grips and handrails to provide a safe and easy entrance or exit from your hot tub.

Children

Children

For the safety of your children, set some rules such as they are only allows to use the hot tub whilst supervised by an adult, by leaving children unattended you’re asking for trouble. Another good rule is not to let your children fully submerge their heads under the water, as their hair or clothing may get tangled up in the filtration system.

If you feel it necessary build a safety gate with a lock around the premises, so your children cannot wander over to the water without your supervision.

Water Temperature

Water Temperature

When it comes to temperature, children have a lower tolerance to heat than adults, so if children are using the hot tub lower the temperature of the water and only allow them to bathe for around 10 to 15 minutes at a time.

Plus remember that seating in the warm water can make you thirsty, so keep yourself and anyone else hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
