Tips and suggestions for blending kids and Hot Tubs and Swim Spas:
1– Adjust the temperature!– cooling down the hot tub a couple of degrees is highly suggested, so their little bodies do not get overwhelmed by the heat. It is not suggested for kids under 5 to enter tubs at temperature levels indicated for grownups. If they turn red at all, keep a careful eye and remove older kids. Make certain they understand the time limits on spa time if the water has not adequately cooled, and remember to allow time for the water to cool.
2– Reduce the power of the jets– take them down a notch or 2 inning accordance with their size, age and activity of the kids in your hot tub or swim spa.
3– Be sure to keep your swim spa and hot tub covered when not in use to prevent not being watched play.
Every traditional rigid foam filled Swim Spa Cover will always get saturated and too heavy to lift. On a regular size spa this can be bad enough but on a swim spa it can become dangerous.
4– Keep kids hydrated with drinks and younger children monitored at all times. Shade Umbrellas are always a welcome break from the sun on hot days.
5– Have lots of water toys and games– you do not require a lot of space to have a good time with toys and apparatus in a hot tub or swim spa. Foam tubes, rubber balls, water guns, Frisbees and floating apparatus are constantly a source of endless play. The LED Lighting and Water Features, both water fountains and waterfalls, constantly make things more enjoyable and festive for any age. The integrated stereo on the majority of models includes environment and can be used for kids’ video games such as musical chairs.
6– Use enzyme based water treatment systems, to keep the water tidy and great without the usage of a great deal of chemicals on the skin of kids in hot tubs. Attempt and make sure their swimsuits are washed well of all laundry detergent to prevent clouding up the water. Having kids prevent using creams in the medical spas will also help the water stay clear.
7– Give first swimming lessons in a safe and shallow environment prior to updating to complete size swim spas. Swim Spas are an outstanding location to teach kids ways to swim as you can stay stationary while supporting them as they swim versus the current picked to be at a perfect speed for them.
Fun for kids of all ages in a hot tub or swim spa all year round!
