Hot Tub Buying Guide


Hot tub age restrictions

You have a hot tub and you want to enjoy it with others. You may invite friends and family in to enjoy the hot tub's wonderful hydrotherapy with you. Hot tubs are a great way to enjoy an evening in the company of others. But before you invite others over you want to be sure that a soak in a hot tub is safe for them. So what are the age restrictions for hot tub use?

We want to keep our children safe at all times. And of course, water can be a dangerous place for children. Never allow children to be in or near an unsecured hot tub without proper supervision. With proper supervision, children can use a hot tub. Please check with your child's doctor for their recommendations. Also, if you are inviting friends or family over with young children, ask them to check with the pediatrician for any remmended guidelines. The child might have a condition that would warrant more cuations when using a hot tub. Younger children should not be exposed to water over 102 degrees Farhenheit. Children under 12 should limit their time in the tub to 20 minutes or less. Infants and toddlers should not be exposed to the hot tub unless the water is below 100 degrees and only if they are in the tub for short increments - infants are more sensitive to heat. Children are not as able to monitor the effects of the heat on themselves and may not be able to determine if and when they need to get out. You need to help them and be alert always when a child is in the tub with you.

Most public spas will not allow children under 12 or even 16 to use the hot tub. The concern is that children don't handle the heat well. Dehydration and/or hyperthermia can occur. A child can beocme drowsy because of the heat and therefore, drowning is a risk. Never allow a child to submerge his head in the hot tub. The American Red Cross recommends that children under 5 avoid hot tub use for the reasons mentioned above.

You also want to be aware of the effects of the heat on older guests who may have trouble monitoring themselves. Older adults are also more susceptible to hyperthermia and to dehydration. Monitor the temperature of the water and their time in the tub with care. You want to be respectful of their own discernment but also vigilant about their health.

Check with the doctor for children or older adults that will be using your tub. Your hot tub is a place for relaxation and enjoyment. Your hope is that it will promote a healthy life not hinder one.
