Hot Tub Safety Document

During pregnancy soaking in hot tub may cause damage to the foetus so please contact your doctor for advice before entering the water.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Parents are advised that the hot tub are not suitable for children under the age of 4 years old.
  • Parents are to warn children not to allow water in their mouths as this can cause infection and illness.
  • The heat of the hot tub water speeds up the effects of alcohol and cause sleepiness, dizziness and unconsciousness.
  • Never use the hot tub while using narcotics or other drugs that may cause drowsiness, sleepiness or raise/lower your blood pressure.
  • 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 can cause fever like conditions. At 36/37 C this time can be extended as this is body temperature and there is no risk.
  • Do not immerse your head in the hot tub water. This increases the risk of infection and can heighten the dangers of drowning due to suction below the water line.
  • Never use the hot tub alone. Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub. When leaving the hot tub leg muscles may be relaxed enough to make you unsteady.
  • Never use glass near or in the hot tub, as broken glass can cause risk to people in bare feet and is very difficult to see within the hot tub.
  • Do not use any electrical appliances near or in the hot tub.
  • If any fault or damage occurs with the hot tub, please contact the owners of your property at the earliest convenient moment.
  • Shower with soap and water before and after using the hot tub. Showering before use washes away many of the common skin bacteria and removes lotions, deodorants, creams, etc., which reduce the effectiveness of the spa sanitizer which disinfects the water.
  • Make sure fake tan is removed before using the hot tub as this reacts to the chemicals and reduces the effectiveness of the spa sanitizer which disinfects the water. It also colours the water and marks the waterline of the hot tub.
  • Never allow children to use the hot tub unsupervised and when not in use make sure the cover is on and secure.
  • Avoid using the hot tub immediately after a heavy meal.
  • Avoid entering the hot tub water immediately after exercising as the water temperature can affect the heart rate.
  • Take care on the hot tub steps as water from the tub can cause them to be slippery.
  • If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower. If reaction persists, contact a local doctor or A&E. There is a list in the information pack in your accommodation.
  • Ensure no contaminants ie. Bubble bath, alcohol, oil etc are placed in the water as this can upset the chemical balance of the water and can result in allergic reactions.
  • Do not turn the hot tub isolation switch off at the electricity point as the power needs to be turned on to carry out the cleaning cycles.
