Here are 6 Things that you Absolutely Must not do while Relaxing in your Hot Tub

You have recently acquired a hot tub, and now that it is completely installed, you may get ready to use it. The only thing left for you to do is ease into the warm, calming waters and take some time for yourself to soak and unwind in the evening. There is nothing quite like those first few hours spent in your hot tub, but you should make it a point to familiarize yourself with the proper maintenance procedures for your brand-new hot tub and steer clear of any actions that could potentially damage it. When it comes to purchasing a hot tub in Colorado, Mountain Mist Spas offers a wide variety of options for you to choose from. We can assist you in selecting the outside hot tub that best meets your requirements.

Contact us today to learn more about the hot tubs we have for sale, and while you’re here, take a look at the following list of six things you should never do when using your new purchase.

You should not bring any glass.

You should never bring a glass anywhere near your hot tub, even though you might be tempted to get your bottle of beer or glass of wine to the hot tub. If you were to knock your drink over or drop it, you could be in for a nightmare when it comes to cleaning up the mess. The turbulent water presents a significant risk due to the ease with which broken glass might entangle. If there is shattered glass around your hot tub and there is even the slightest chance that glass has made its way into the hot tub, you must exit the spa immediately and give it a complete cleaning.

In addition, bringing glass into the vicinity of your hot tub is not a good idea. Most of the time, the mirror in question is a container for some alcoholic beverage. However, it may seem like a relaxing and enjoyable experience to soak while enjoying your favorite alcoholic beverage, but doing so is not truly recommended. Instead, put the cocktail hour off until after you have had some time to unwind.

Soak yourself until you become a lobster.

What can provide more relief for your aching muscles than a good, toasty bath in a hot tub? When relaxing in a hot tub, you should feel free to enjoy a reasonable level of heat, but you should be careful not to let the temperature get too high. Always keep a close eye on the temperature in your hot tub, and make sure that it does not rise above the safe range of temperatures, which is between 100 and 102 degrees Fahrenheit.

You need to get out of the hot tub and take a rest. The shorter time you should soak for every degree the water rises in temperature is recommended. Ideally, you should get out of your hot tub and take a break every 15 to 30 minutes. Then wait till you’ve had time to cool off.

Never get in with your wounds exposed.

A strained muscle or a worn-out back can benefit from soaking in a hot tub. Any injuries or wounds should be kept from the water in the hot tub. Before using a hot tub, you should wait until your wounds have healed. A simple bandage will not be sufficient to protect your injury, and the hot water may cause the bandage to come off while soaking.

You put yourself at increased risk for contracting infections if you soak with open wounds. So instead of treating cuts and scrapes in your hot tub, focus on soothing aching muscles.

The Children Shouldn’t be Left Unattended.

Even though they’re little, your kids will have fun taking a few fast dips in the hot tub. However, you should make it a point to stay nearby to keep an eye on any children who could use the hot tub. While a child could be safely left alone in a hot tub, this is not the case. It is just as risky as leaving a young child alone in a swimming pool or any other body of water.

Make sure that any child who lives in your home or visits your home is aware that the hot tub must always be used under the direct supervision of an adult. Keep the lid on the hot tub and lock it whenever you leave it alone, especially if you have young children who could be tempted to investigate what’s happening.

The Health Club Is a Rough House

It may sound like a good time to play a game of chicken in your hot tub, but it is never a good idea to roughhouse in a place that is as confined as this one. When children are playing around, the surface of a hot tub can be very slippery, and it is easy for them to lose their balance and fall. This could result in you hitting your head on the side of the hot tub or falling out of the tub and landing on the ground below.

Put the roughhousing on hold for another time, and take your time relaxing in the hot tub instead. Ensure that children also adhere to this regulation when using the hot tub.

While You Soak In The Tub, never observe the Thunderstorm.

The summer months in Colorado are known to produce some breathtaking thunderstorms. It is never a good idea to be in any body of water during a thunderstorm, including your hot tub, even though it could be nice to watch a thunderstorm while sitting in the warm waters of your hot tub. You should get out of the water immediately and save your soak for after the storm if you can see or hear lightning in the area.

Even though being in a hot tub during a thunderstorm could be dangerous, no reason shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the show. Watch the snow fall from within the comfort of your hot tub as you patiently wait for a picture-perfect winter snowstorm to arrive. The weather in this part of Colorado is one of the factors that contribute to the region’s love of hot tubs. Because there will be so many cold days and nights shortly, a hot tub is an ideal way to combat the chill.
