5 Questions Often Asked about Hot Tubs

Here are five common questions people ask about using hot tubs:

  1. Safe for pregnant women? Soaking in a hot tub is generally not recommended for expectant mothers. Because of the temperature of the water, if you sit in your tub for 10-20 minutes, your core body temperature will increase and that can be detrimental.
  2. Safe for kids? Depending on their age, children can enjoy the warm waters. Infants and toddlers should never be allowed in. Younger children should be able to stand on the bottom while their head remains entirely out of the water. Their time should also be limited to five minutes and avoid complete body immersion. Never leave your kids alone in a hot tub.
  3. Safe for Seniors? Always check in with your doctor to make sure soaking in a tub is okay. For some with health issues such as diabetes, heart conditions, or blood pressure problems, it may be a better idea to stay out of the water. Always use a safety rail when getting in and out of the tub.
  4. Is it okay to use if you have a rash or wound? Warm water is a suitable environment for bacteria to grow and spread, especially if a hot tub is not properly maintained. If you have a rash, open sore, or other types of skin infection, you should probably stay out until things clear up, and you consult your doctor.
  5. Will it help my cold? It is possible that soaking in your spa will relieve some of the symptoms of a cold. It can increase your body temperature to boost your immune system to fight the cold virus. You can also sleep better after a soak.
