Common guidelines every spa owner should follow while enjoying their hot tub experience.
Though there are no mandated guidelines that you should follow, common sense has it that there are certain things one must not do while in a Master Spa hot tub. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of 4 important things below:
1. Drinking alcohol:
As many of us know, alcohol often raises the temperature of your body and as the spa is already steaming hot, drinking alcohol further increases the temperature of your body. When this happens, dizziness and/or fainting can occur. Simply put, don’t drink alcohol in your hot tub!
2. Rough-housing in or around the spa:
Kids under the age of 13 (or adults for that matter) should not run, jump, or skip in or around the hot tub. As water can easily surround the spa, the risk of someone getting injured is high.
3. Turning off the power:
Until it is time to put your hot tub away for the season, there is no reason to switch off the power. However, when it is time for you to turn off the hot tub, only do so when there is no water in it. Be especially careful in the winter – switching off the power with the water filled in the hot tub can be disastrous, as it causes the water inside the hot tub to freeze and potentially cause breakage.
4. Raising the spa temperature above 104 degrees:
We often get questions about the range of temperature people should keep their spa temperature at. As a general rule of thumb, we tell our customers that raising the temperature above 104 degree F is never a good idea. Keeping your hot tub at a maximum of 102 degrees F is the maximum we would suggest.
If you follow all of the above listed items when in and around your hot tub, you will be making sure that your spa experience always turns out to a pleasant one.
