HOT TUB RULES, REGULATIONS & CONDITIONS
- Always keep the hot tub covered and locked when not in use. This will conserve energy and prevent animals and young children from falling/climbing in. It will also help prevent dirt and debris from getting in.
- Never use the hot tub while wearing fake tan. It discolours not only the water but also the lining of the tub.
- Always shower with soap and water before using a hot tub. Showering before will prevent lotions and skin oils from gunking up the filter and will wash away many of the common skin bacteria and remove lotions, deodorants, creams, etc., which reduce the effectiveness of the spa sanitizer which disinfects the water and prevents bacteria from entering the pool.
- Do not drag or lift spa cover using either flaps or cover lock straps
- Do not place objects on top of cover and do not walk, stand or sit on cover
- Remove cover completely before entry of bathers
- Cover system not to be used in wind conditions above 25mph
- Brush any mud/ grit from your feet if you’re not wearing sandals/flip flops before you enter the Hot Tub and do not introduce mud, stones or sticks into the Hot Tub.
- Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub and always use the spa steps and do not place weight on the hot tub control panel & audio system. Do not step or climb on spa edges or filter lid.
- Test water temperature with hand before entry.
- The number of bathers in the spa pool at any time should never exceed the number of seats (6 main seats plus 1 ledge)
- Do not use bedroom towels outside for Hot Tub use
- If your hair is long, put it up in a ponytail or bun to avoid getting it caught in the filter or drain.
- Don’t add anything – e.g bubble bath, shampoo, gels, soaps, oils, salts etc. These can seriously affect the water quality and filter system and will result in charges.
- Do not put your head under the water in the hot tub and be sure not to allow children to do this either. This increases the risk of infection and heightens the dangers of drowning.
- Make sure the hot tub is at the appropriate temperature, taking in to consideration the people who will be using it. Children should never be in a hot tub if the water is warmer than bathwater about 34C. For adults, maintain the water temperature at 38C.
- At 39/40 C limit your time in the hot tub to a maximum of 20 minutes, as extending this time can affect your inner organs and cause fever like conditions.
- Never allow children to use the hot tub unsupervised.
- Avoid drinking alcohol or using drugs in the hot tub. The hot water will amplify and speed the effects of any alcohol or drugs. Alcohol makes you drowsy, and falling asleep in hot water can be very dangerous. In addition to the risk of drowning, your body cannot regulate its temperature as well when you are asleep, which can lead to dangerous overheating.
- Don’t eat or smoke in the Hot Tub.
- Never use electrical devices (including phones, radios, TVs or any other corded device) in or near the hot tub.
- Never use glass near or in the hot tub.
- Do not block or partially block water flow at entrance of water feature
- Do not turn off more than half of each type of jets at the same time otherwise there is a risk of damage to plumbing & components
- Turn off Jet Pumps on control panel when not in use
- Do not turn hot tub isolation switch off at the electricity point.
- Do not use household chemicals to clean spa shell as most are harmful to it
- Access may be required at an agreed time for cleaning and maintenance.
HOT TUB HEALTH RULES
- Pregnant women should consult a Doctor for advice beforehand to ensure it is safe to use the hot tub
- People with skin, ear, genital or other body infections, open sores, or wounds should not use the hot tub because of the possibility of spreading infection or irritating your condition.
- Persons with heart disease, diabetes, low or high blood pressure, or any serious illness should not enter the hot tub without prior consultation with their Doctor.
- Never use the hot tub while using narcotics or other drugs that may cause sleepiness, drowsiness or raise / lower your blood pressure.
- Parents are advised that the hot tubs are not suitable for children under the age of four and to warn their children not to allow water in to their mouths as this can cause infection and illness
- If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower. If the reaction persists contact a local doctor or A&E.
