Spending time in the spa or hot tub is especially enjoyable during cooler weather. Remember to follow hot tub safety rules this winter season to ensure everyone has a fun and safe experience. This hot tub safety infographic is a fun way to go over spa rules with your guests.
General hot tub rules to follow:
- Observe the spa or hot tub limits regarding the maximum allowable number of bathers. Exclude children under the age of 5 from using hot tubs.
- Never use the spa or hot tub if you are using alcohol or drugs. The combination can cause drowsiness or unconsciousness, resulting in drowning or a heart attack.
- Spa water temperatures should never exceed 104 degrees Fahrenheit. High temperatures can cause drowsiness which may lead to unconsciousness, resulting in drowning.
- Keep a locked spa safety cover on the spa whenever it is not in use and keep children away unless there is constant adult supervision.
Note: Consult a doctor before entering a hot tub if you are pregnant, have a history of heart disease, diabetes, blood pressure problems or are taking medication.
