There are few things cozier on an Arizona winter night than taking a dip or a soak in the hot tub. Taking a soak has some great health benefits, and let’s face it — it’s super relaxing after a long day and soothing after a tough workout. So soak it up! But first, Aquaman Pools has a few important safety tips to share:
Maintain a Clean Hot Tub — It’s important that the pumps and equipment are working properly and that the water chemicals are balanced to ensure a clean and healthy experience. For those that would rather skip this step, Aquaman Pools not only offers professional pool care service but the company can also keep a sparkling clean and chemically balanced hot tub for homeowners.
Be Aware of Slick Surfaces — Much like Mom’s advice “no running around the pool!” hot tub soakers should take caution around the hot tub as well in case surfaces are wet and slippery. Another tip: hot tub tiles should not be sticky or slippery — if they are this could be an indicator of a chemical imbalance or other issue.
Check the Temp — While it’s nice to have a hot hot tub, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends pool temperatures not exceed 104 degrees F. Children younger than five should not soak in a hot tub and pregnant women should always follow their doctor’s advice before taking a dip.
Keep it Covered — When not in use, a hot tub should be covered for energy efficiency and insultation. For those with little ones or four legged friends, the locks on a hot tub covered should always be used to ensure the safety of babies and pets.
Drink Up — While there are many great benefits to soaking in a hot tub, it can also cause people to sweat and therefore lose liquids so it’s important to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before and after a soak.
