3 Hot Tub Safety Tips to Prevent Accidents & Injuries, Kihei, Hawaii

Having a hot tub on your property can provide your friends and family with a fun, relaxing way to spend time together. However, like many recreational settings, caution should be used to avoid some specific injuries that can occur. Pool Pro in Kihei, HI, suggests familiarizing yourself with a few basic safety precautions for hot tub use.

Follow these tips for keeping your guests, as well as yourself, safe from harm while using a hot tub:

  • Walk, Don’t Run: It can be easy to get carried away by the nice weather and fun outdoor spirit, but remember—just as one can fall on a pool deck and hurt themselves, the area around a hot tub is slippery when wet, too. Always use caution around the hot tub. 
  • hot tubNo Glass Or Alcohol: Due to its easily breakable nature, glass should not be allowed anywhere near a hot tub. Should a mishap occur, pieces of glass in roiling water can quickly produce injury. If you do choose to have a drink in a plastic cup, choose water or juice over any alcoholic drink—when combined with the temperature of the hot tub, alcohol can lead to heat exhaustion in some individuals. 
  • Mind The Weather: If it looks like there’s a storm on the horizon or you see lightning anywhere in the sky, stay out of your spa. Water attracts electricity, and the risk of electrocution is exponentially higher if you should be in your hot tub when lightning strikes. 

Now that you know some basic hot tub safety, it’s time to talk with the experts. Whether you want a new hot tub or you have questions regarding your existing spa, contact Pool Pro by calling (808) 879-3294 today. Visit their website for a complete list of products and services.
