Chemicals & Water Treatment

Chemicals, additives and cleaning compounds are best kept in a cool, dry and well ventilated location, away from direct sunlight and out of the reach of children.  Read and follow all directions on chemical labels.  Always add chemicals to water, never add water to the chemicals.  Do not mix chemicals together. Add chemicals one at a time. Rinse out the measuring cup before the addition of the next chemical. Do not breathe in the chemicals.  In case of contact or if chemical is swallowed, please seek medical advice immediately.  The three main chemical elements used for hot tub hygiene are :- Sodium Dichlorisocyanurate UN No. 2465, Sodium Carbonate and Sodium Hydrogen Sulphate.  Do not smoke near chemicals. Keep the container closed when not in use.

Alcohol and Drugs

Hot water amplifies the effects of alcohol and certain drugs and the results can be dangerous.  Consult your doctor regarding the use of prescription drugs.  Many people prefer the enjoyment of a chilled soft drink, juice or mineral water whilst relaxing in the spa.

Water Temperature

Soaking for too long in elevated water temperatures can raise body heat to hazardous levels.  The National Spa and Pool Institute considers 40⁰C/104⁰F to be the maximum safe water temperature for adults.  All our hot tubs are digitally controlled and won’t exceed the recommended temperature.  A safe soaking time should not exceed 15minutes.  Some medical authorities recommend a lower maximum temperature of 38⁰C. They have advised that since infants and children are more sensitive to heat, they should be exposed to water of no more than 35⁰C, for no more than 10 minutes.  Persons with heart disease, diabetes, hypertension or hypotension, or any other serious illness, please consult your doctor before entering the hot tub.

Children & Infants

Children and infants should be introduced into the hot tub slowly, giving them time to adjust to the change in temperature and to alleviate anxiety or discomfort.

NEVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES leave children unattended in or around hot tubs.

Pregnant women should not enter the hot tub without first consulting with their midwife or GP.

Power Cut-Off Switch - Our hot tubs come complete with a built in ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) and is inspected prior to installation and during installation.  When we install a hot tub, we will inspect the site and locate a suitable location for the positioning of the hot tub which would need to be positioned 5ft away from the power source.

Electrical Devices

NEVER handle a corded phone, radio, TV, hairdryer or any other electrical device whilst you are around or in a hot tub, have wet hands or feet.

Keep electrical devices away from the water, never place them on the hot tub edge.   If an electrical appliance should fall into the water, this could result in electrocution.

Hot Tub Cover - Always lock the safety cover when the hot tub is not in use.  Keep young children away from the hot tub unless there is adult supervision.  Small children are inquisitive, and unsupervised hot tubs can be an attraction to them.  Make sure that the hot tub cover straps are locked.
