Hot tubs require a fair amount of upkeep. You need to maintain your hot tub well, or you can risk it becoming a home to bacteria. The combination of heat and stagnant water is a perfect environment for bacterial growth. You will need to care for the hot tub pretty regularly to keep bacteria from getting a foothold.
On top of initial price, there are ongoing costs to a hot tub. These include the power to run the hot tub and heat it, the water bill to fill it, and any repairs that may come up if it breaks.
Using a hot tub feels great and you may want to stay in there forever, but there are dangers to be aware of when considering a hot tub. There have been injuries associated with the use of hot tubs. Most of these injuries are linked to excessive heat exposure. It is easy to sit in the water, getting used to the temperature, and then be tempted to turn it up. After a while this can be dangerous. If you ever become lightheaded, dizzy or uncomfortable, get out of the hot tub. Regardless of how you feel, setting safe time limits and taking extra care with children, pregnant women, and people who have been drinking is always a good idea.
A hot tub can increase circulation which is fine for most people, and can be good for some, but there are others with preexisting circulatory and heart conditions that may be exacerbated by a hot tub. If you have any concerns in this area, consult a doctor before using a hot tub.
Without proper maintenance and care, a hot tub is the perfect spot for bacterial growth. This can make it risky to go into a hot tub with open wounds, or even dangerous when getting the hot tub water into your eyes or mouth. A general rule of thumb is to stay out of a hot tub if you notice odor; a properly maintained and cared for hot tub is odorless. Stay out of any hot tub you think may be questionable. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Now you know all the pros and cons and can say if you want it or not, so what do you think?
