At 36-37oC this time can be extended up to 1 hour.Ø 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.Ø 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.Ø Never allow children to use the spa or hot tub unsupervised and when not in use make sure the cover is on, secured.Ø Never use the hot tub alone.Ø Avoid using the hot tub immediately after a heavy meal.Ø Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub. When leaving the hot tub leg muscles may be relaxed enough to make you unsteady.Ø Avoid entering the hot tub water immediately after exercising as the water temperature can affect the heart rate.Ø Never use glass near/in the hot tub as broken glass can cause a risk to people in barefoot and is very difficult to see within the hot tub water.Ø Take care on any decking by the hot tub as water from the tub can cause it to be slippery.Ø Do not use any electrical appliances near/in the hot tub.Ø If any allergic reaction occurs leave the hot tub and rinse off in the shower.
