How safe are hot tubs in holiday accommodation?

If you are contemplating booking a holiday cottage that has a hot tub, you may be concerned about its safety aspects.
Spa chemicals are used to keep a hot tub bacteria free in a similar way to a swimming pool. The water is not usually emptied between lettings.  The degree of bacteria depends on how consistently and thoroughly the hot tub water treatment is maintained.

If this is a concern to you, you might be better off booking a holiday cottage with a Jacuzzi where the water is emptied on every use.

There are health considerations when using a hot tub and these are always displayed. Essentially, do not use one if you have a heart problem are pregnant or suffer from high blood pressure.

Should people drink alcohol when using a hot tub?

No one using a hot tub should be so inebriated that they fall asleep and put themselves in danger of drowning. The warm water of a hot tub could relax sufficiently to induce drowsiness.

Do not leave children unattended

A hot tub, especially a large one, contains a good amount of water. Children should always be watched near hot tubs. There tend to be steps leading up to a hot tub and even a toddler would be able to climb and fall in. It is usual for hot tub covers to be replaced to conserve heat when it is not in use.
