Spas & Hot Tubs

  • Get out of the spa or hot tub immediately if you experience nausea, dizziness or fainting.

  • These are signs of hypothermia which can be fatal.

  • Cool your body with cold towels or a cool shower.

  • Call a doctor or 9-1-1 if the symptoms do not go away.

  • Keep the water temperature in your spa below 104°F (40°C).

  • Age or health conditions (especially pregnancy) may require a lower temperature.

  • Consult your physician for more information.

  • Never use the spa or hot tub if you are using alcohol or drugs.

  • The combination of hot water and alcohol and/or drugs can cause dizziness, falling, unconsciousness or a heart attack.

  • Make sure your spa or hot tub has dual suction outlets.

  • All tub suction fittings should be certified to meet the current ASME/ANSI Standards that apply. 

  • Never alter the electrical cord or plug on the spa system.

  • Never use an extension cord to connect a spa system to an existing electrical outlet.

  • A spa system must operate from a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) protected circuit or outlet. If in doubt, consult a licensed electrician.
