Spa & Hot tub Chemical Safety -
Do's & Don'ts for everyone's sake

You purchased your Spa or Hot tub to give you years of enjoyment. But like any kind of water recreation, there are certain precautions which must be followed to minimize the risk of injury.

Properly ventilate the spa. If your spa is inside & inadequately ventilated, some users may experience slight throat & eye irritation. Ventilate it naturally or mechanically with an exhaust fan

Keep your spa water temperature no higher than 104░ degrees F. Higher temperatures can place undue strain on the cardiovascular system. Be sure to accurately monitor the temperature.


Persons with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or other cardiovascular conditions should consult their physicians before using a spa.


ALWAYS shower first with soap & water to reduce the likelihood of contaminating the spa water & minimize health risks.


Persons with open sores or any type of infection should not use the spa. The hot water is an ideal environment for spreading infection, especially if sanitizer levels are not properly maintained.


Limit your soak time to no more than 15 to 20 minutes at a time. Cool off then re-enter if you like.  Click here for more information.


Never drink alcoholic beverages before or during spa use. Alcohol can make you drowsy & lead to drowning. Anyone taking medication should consult their physician before using a spa.


Children must not be permitted to use the spa without adult supervision.


Women who are pregnant should consult their physician before using a spa.


People with long hair must tie it up to prevent the hair from being pulled into the filter & drain.


Handrails & non-slip surfaces will help to minimize the risk of slipping and falling.


Never use any kind of electrical appliance or devise while using the spa.


Never use your spa during sever weather conditions (i.e. electrical storms, tornadoes, etc.)


Never jump or dive into a spa or hot tub. Climb in carefully.


Insist on safe use of the spa & ALL of its equipment.

No horseplay.

Ask people to leave if they're unwilling to follow safe behavior.


WARNING:  The Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that the water temperature in a spa or tub should not exceed 104░F.  Immersion in water in excess of 104░F could be hazardous to your health.  Children, aged persons, persons having medical problems, and pregnant women should consult their physicians before using a spa or a hot tub.  Spas or hot tubs should not be used by persons under the influence of alcohol or any persons taking medications that cause drowsiness.
