While a hot tub is an excellent addition to any home for families to reconnect and enjoy time together, those with young children must take extra precautions to keep their kids safe. Small children should be limited to 5 to 10 minutes in water 100 degrees or below while adults in temperatures above 101 should be limited to 20 minutes due to body mass. Families can still enjoy the luxury of a hot tub and all of its benefits with these few proactive steps to keep everyone safe.
Children are naturally curious and will try to explore as much of their surroundings as possible. To keep your curious child away from the hot tub when you aren’t around, invest in a high-quality hot tub cover. Many hot tubs come with locking covers that require a key to open, providing a high level of safety. Even if your hot tub doesn’t include a locking cover, the feature can be purchased and added to the spa.
Children should never be in the hot tub unattended, making it a great time for family bonding. Parents should also always be monitoring hot tub temperatures and time spent in the hot tub.
