The Do’s and the Don’ts when you are in or around a hot tub!

We all know that there is nothing else like a nice, long soak in a hot tub to help you unwind after a busy day of work. Whether you choose to hut tub alone or with a few friends, the relaxing hot water and body soothing jets will have you in a state of bliss. If you’re a newcomer to the world of hot tubs, we’ve got some Do’s and some Don’ts for you to all have a good read through!

The Don’ts

  • Treat your hot tub as if it’s a pool. No diving, cannonballs, or any other silly business allowed!
  • Wear sufficient clothing when you’re in the hot tub. Shirts, shorts, and other clothing items can make a bubbly mess when the jets are turned on! Trunks or a swimsuit will be fine!
  • Eat snacks that will make a big mess, things like chips and dip. Fruit is the best option for food when you are in the hot tub plus it’s healthy!
  • Let your pets go in the hot tub. This is dangerous for your pet and can affect the quality of the water in your tub.
  • Drink alcohol while you’re in the hot tub. Hot water is a stimulant, while alcohol is a depressant. Combining the two is not a good idea! Drink water instead.
  • Go into a hot tub if you have any open sores or cuts.
  • Allow your children to go in the hot tub unsupervised.
  • Hog all the jets! Don’t be selfish and be considerate of the other people in the tub with you.

The Do’s

  • Bring your own towel. This will make life easier for your host!
  • Make sure that your bathing suit is rinsed thoroughly before getting in the tub. Residue from laundry detergent can create unwanted foaminess.
  • Rinse off any lotions or deodorant you may be wearing before entering the hot tub to help keep the water clean.
  • Wipe your feet before entering the hot tub.
  • Use the stair step entrance for your safety.
  • Thoroughly dry yourself when leaving the hot tub. Wet feet can cause slips and falls!
  • Cover your hot tub with your hot tub cover when it’s not in use. This will protect the inside of your hot tub from dirt, debris, or other damage.
