Here are some tips you can follow to keep your children safe:
Secure the area: Build an enclosure around the hot tub area. You can also put up a fence with a self-latching gate to ensure that your children do not get in your spa without your permission and supervision.
Never leave children unattended: Make sure that you always supervise your children while the hot tub is being used. Never leave them alone even for one minute.
Adjust the temperature: Before the hot tub is used, check the temperature and turn it down if it is too hot.
Cover your hot tub when not in use: Cover your hot tub when you are finished using it. It will prevent your children from accidentally falling in.
Make sure the drain is safe: Keep the drain protected by an approved cover and test it periodically. Check for the expiration date and replace it when indicated.
Prevent slips and falls: Prevent slips and falls outside the hot tub by:
- Installing anti-skid treads on the steps
- Painting your deck with sand paint
- Placing slip-proof rubber mats near the entrance of the hot tub
