Rules & Regulations for using the hot tub:

  1. To reduce the risk of injury the water in the hot tub should never exceed 40°C. Water temperatures between 37°C and 40°C are considered safe. Lower water temperatures are recommended for extended use (over 10 minutes) and for young children. Extended use can increase the risk of hyperthermia. Pregnant, or possibly pregnant, women should limit the hot tub temperature to 38°C. Failure to do so may result in permanent injury to your baby. CHILDREN UNDER 3 SHOULD NOT USE THE HOT TUB.
  2. To avoid burns please test the water with your hand before entering the hot tub to make sure it is comfortable.
  3. To avoid causing water contamination showering before using the hot tub is compulsory.
  4. Extreme caution must be exercised to prevent unauthorised access by children. To avoid accidents, children must be supervised by an adult at all times when using the hot tub. Please make sure that children are careful when entering or exiting the hot tub and please remind them that wet surfaces can be very slippery. To reduce the risk of injury, lower water temperatures are recommended for young children as children are especially sensitive to hot water.
