Spa and Hot Tub Safety Guidelines

Feb 15, 2019 | Blog

Keep your spa or hot tub fun and safe! Below are guidelines to help ensure a safe and worry-free season for everyone.

  1. Stay Hydrated. Hydration is key. Hot tubs cause us to sweat, so our bodies lose water. All bathers, especially children, should drink fresh water while soaking.
  2. Not for Infants or Toddlers. Infants and toddlers should not be permitted in a hot tub at all. Their thinner skin makes them more susceptible to rapid overheating.
  3. Supervise Children. Children should always be supervised by at least one responsible adult. Keep a locked cover on your spa or hot tub when it is not in use to prevent children from climbing in unnoticed.
  4. Consult Your Doctor. Pregnant women and persons with heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or any other serious illness should not enter a spa without first consulting with a physician.
  5. Set a Timer. 15 minutes is generally considered a safe soaking time for healthy adults.
