Hot Tub Health And Safety


Hot tubs and spas have become a very popular essential lifestyle choice in many homes today. Being able to enjoy a relaxing and therapeutic experience within the confines of your own property saves time, travel and money. If you are fortunate enough to own your own hot tub or hot tub spa then there is ongoing maintenance required. The motor, pump, pump heater, filters and cartridges, piping, water inlets and outlets and all electrical connections are essential parts of the hot tub operating system and need to be kept in top working condition.

To keep your tub clean and safe it is very important to have a good knowledge of the chemicals required to sustain a healthy environment in your hot tub. Bacteria and germs flourish in the warm and damp conditions surrounding the hot tub.

There are a number of related conditions which thrive in this atmosphere, among them are hot tub lung, hot tub rash and hot tub folliculitis, so great care must be taken to make sure your tub is sparkling clean at all times.

Maybe you are considering the purchase of a hot tub for your family to enjoy. Issues to check out are the sizes, styles and costs involved. Where to locate your tub, on a deck, outdoors or indoors?

All these questions can be answered with diligent online research as well as visiting your local plumbing or pool suppliers. Ask lots of questions regarding your concerns. Ask about installation requirements, motor sizes, water pressure needs, electrical wiring and qualified professional installers availability. Also, perhaps the most important issue is the cost of all this?

Another important accessory for a hot tub which needs to be factored into your hot tub purchase is a cover. To protect your hot tub from dirt, dust and also provide a safety protection for children and pets a cover is a good investment.

There are many different types of covers available and you will be able to find one to suit your choice of hot tub and also your budget. A hot tub cover lifter is also worth consideration because covers can be heavy and difficult to move.

Most importantly be informed and prepared to discuss all the issues involved in owning a hot tub before you rush off to make your purchase. Most of all enjoy the fruits of all your labors as you relax in your beautiful hot tub.
