Health Safety Precautions

  1. Before using your spa you should check water temperature with a thermometer that is known to be accurate. Never use a spa with water temperature higher than 104 degrees Fahrenheit as this is considered the maximum safe temperature for healthy adults and only for short periods - 15 to 20 minutes at a time. You may remain immersed in water for longer periods of time provided that water temperature is lower than 100 degrees which is approximately normal body temperature.
  2. Alcohol consumption before or during spa use should be totally avoided : it can cause spa users to lose consciousness and drown.
  3. Individuals using prescription medication(s) should check with their physician before using the spa. Certain medications may result in complications when used in conjunction with a spa.
  4. Individuals suffering cardiac medical conditions such as heart disease, blood pressure and circulatory system problems or diabetes should check with a physician before using the spa.
  5. Pregnant women can use the spa at temperatures below 100 degrees. Higher water temperature may cause injury to the unborn child.
  6. Hyperthermia (heat stroke) is a dangerous condition brought about by excessive heat. It especially affects the very young, the elderly, individuals under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and those that are on certain medications. The symptoms of hyperthermia are : sweating, dizziness, nausea, faintness, convulsions, increased pulse rate and shallow breathing and in the extreme unconsciousness. If you suspect hyperthermia, immediately get medical help, lay the victim on the back, with the head slightly elevated for easier breathing, cover the body with a blanket and apply ice packs to the head.
  7. Emergency telephone numbers, such as a hospital, a physician, an ambulance, the paramedics and the police should be readily available and posted next to a close-by telephone.

Personal Safety Precautions

  1. Please use the spa when others are present.
  2. Children should use the spa only with adult supervision.
  3. Children should have spa access only with the permission and supervision of an adult.
  4. To reduce the risk of child drowning keep the spa filter clean and unclogged. Do not remove the cover(s) of the main drain(s). Do not modify the suction or the filtration systems.
  5. Spa surfaces are made of smooth materials and with water they become slippery. Exercise caution when entering or leaving the spa. When moving or changing positions be sure of your footing before applying your full weight as water refraction can be misleading.
  6. Do not stay in the spa for extended periods of time. Set a reasonable time limit after which leave the spa, cool down, take a shower, relax, then return for another stay in the spa.
  7. Test the GFCI before using your spa. The GFCI is located either on the spa control box or in the electrical panel. To test the GFCI push the TEST button and all power is disconnected from the spa, and the spa should stop stop operating. Push the RESET button and power will be applied. If the interrupter does not perform in this manner, then it is either defective or a ground current is flowing indicating the possibility of electric shock. Disconnect the power and do not use the spa until the fault has been identified and corrected.
  8. Do not permit any electric appliance, such as a light, telephone, radio or television, within 5 feet (1.5meters) from your spa.
