Frequently Asked Questions

What temperature should I set my hot tub at?

How do I find the right hot tub temperature?

Is 40°C too hot for my hot tub water?

Hot Tub water temperature should not exceed 40°C.

This is because as your body temperature increases to the point where it reaches or exceeds 39° C / 103° F (for adults) , there is an increasing danger of developing several conditions related to hyperthermia. This means that you have an excessively high body temperature. The dangers range from mild to seriously life threatening. These may include, Heat Rash, Heat Cramps, Heat Stroke and Heat Exhaustion.

Therefore, even if you’re in overall good health, spending excessively long periods of time in hot water can be dangerous. The risk of serious complications becomes even higher for older people, younger children, pregnant women, and those with chronic illnesses or conditions. This might include for example, a heart condition, high blood pressure and diabetes. We recommend consulting your doctor if you are unsure

Should I use chlorine tablets in my hot tub?

It really depends on how you use the tub!

 

If you don’t use your hot tub very regularly and need to shock dose often, chlorine tablets may be more convenient than chlorine granules for you.

In order to maintain a consistent chlorine level with granules you will need to schedule adding them to your spa – this may become a hassle for you. If this is the case for you, you may find tablets more convenient.

Getting the correct chlorine levels set initially may take some experimentation, but after that, as long as you make sure that you have replaced the tablets once they have dissolved away they are fairly hassle free.

Chlorine tablets are made from Trichloroisocyanuric acid. This is more acidic than the chemical used in chlorine granules. For this reason, using chlorine tablets will invalidate the manufacturers warranty on some spas. Be sure to check terms and conditions before using Chlorine Tablets in your hot tub.

What are the legal responsibilities for a hot tub in a holiday setting?

To provide a hot tub in a holiday let setting, you will need to be compliant with the “Domestic hot tubs in a business setting” guidelines. These guidelines, provided by the Health & Safety Executive in the UK are known as HSG282.

The use of any type of hot tub within a commercial setting is subject to certain rules. If you own a holiday home that you let out to paying guests and supply a hot tub (that only one group of people at a time are able to use) then HSG282 applies to you! These guidelines are designed to ensure that the hot tub water used by your guests is safe and clean.

As the owner you are held legally responsible for compliance.

This isn’t the interfering nanny state – an improperly maintained hot tub can harbour serious infectious diseases, including the potentially fatal legionella bacteria.

How can I ensure my hot tub is HSG 282 compliant?
