             HOT TUB DISCLAIMER (INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE ARE PROVIDED)

  1. Always keep the hot tub covered when not in use. This will conserve energy and, more importantly, prevent animals and young children from falling/climbing in. It will also help prevent dirt and debris from getting in. Always drain any standing water from the cover.
  2. If your hair is long, put it up in a ponytail or bun to avoid getting it caught in the filter or drain.
  3. Make sure the hot tub is at the appropriate temperature, taking in to consideration the people who will be using it. Children should never be in a hot tub if the water is warmer than bath water (about 90 degrees). For adults, maintain the water temperature below 104 degrees.
  4. Avoid drinking alcohol or using drugs in the hot tub. The hot water will amplify and speed the effects of any alcohol or drugs. Alcohol makes you drowsy, and falling asleep in hot water can be very dangerous. In addition to the risk of drowning, your body cannot regulate its temperature as well when you are asleep, which can lead to dangerous overheating.
  5. Similarly, avoid using the hot tub when overly tired, or at least have a more alert person join you to wake you up.
  6. Never use electrical devices (including phones, radios, TVs or any other corded device) in or near the hot tub. If you must have one nearby, use a battery-powered device and place it on a table a safe distance from the water. Be sure all electrical outlets are a safe distance from the hot tub as well, in keeping with local building codes. Corded devices and outlets present a real risk of electrocution if they get wet!
  7. Always shower with soap and water before and after using a hot tub. Showering before will prevent lotions and skin oils from gunking up the filter and prevent bacteria from entering the pool, and showering after will help remove any chemicals or bacteria that linger on your skin, preventing rashes and infection.
  8. Be cautious when using the hot tub during the winter. If the temperature outside the hot tub is below freezing (and at all other times), water splashed over the edge can quickly freeze into slippery ice. Be careful when exiting!
  9. Plastic drinking glasses are provided, please do not use any other glasses etc in the pool
