Using The Hot Tub
Information And Conditions Of Use
The main hazard from hot tubs and spas is the same as that from pools – drowning. About one third of reported deaths in hot tubs were drownings of children under the age of five. Keep your children away from the hot tub unless there is constant adult supervision.
Our hot tubs are checked daily, and meet current safety standards but please do check for yourself that the drain covers have not become cracked or dislodged. Do not use the hot tub if the drain covers are not intact, there is a danger of long hair getting entangled in a damaged drain. Our maintenance team will require access to your decking to chemically test and treat the unit. Visits to your hot tub will probably be in the mornings, and will be as unobtrusive as possible.
The following conditions apply to the use of the hot tub:
- We advise against the use of the hot tub by:
- Women who are pregnant
- The very elderly
- Individuals with heart disease, diabetes or high blood pressure
- Anyone taking prescription medicines unless approved by their doctor
- Infants and toddlers, who have thinner skin and more prone to overheating should not use the hot tub at all.
- Older children should not use the hot tub unless he or she is tall enough to keep their head above water while standing in the middle of the tub. It is advised that younger children should not stay in the tub for more than five minutes at a time. Children under the age of ten must be accompanied by an adult at all times while using the hot tub.
- Do not allow your child to submerge his or her head in a hot tub, the high temperatures encourage the growth of certain micro-organisms, which could possibly lead to an external ear infection.
- Please be aware that consuming alcohol while using a hot tub can lead to drowsiness and increased risk of drowning.
Your holiday home was built and the appliances in it installed in accordance with the safety requirements of British Standards.
Health And Safety:
All gas appliances generate products of combustion, which can be harmful to health. Therefore these appliances have some form of flueing, which ensures that the noxious gases escape. For unflued appliances such as cookers, the ventilation of the holiday home ensure that these gases escape properly.
For your safety please ensure:
- Fixed ventilation openings should in NO circumstances be obstructed.
- NO gas appliances other than the fixed space heaters as originally installed in the holiday home should be used for heating.
- Gas appliances should be turned off when the occupier retires for the night.
- When using gas appliances, additional comfort can be obtained by leaving a window ajar.
IF IN DOUBT
If you are in doubt about the correct operation of any of your gas appliances, the ventilation of your holiday home or wish to have servicing, maintenance or other work carried out, please do not hesitate to contact Reception.
