Having a Dimensions One Spa in the cold weather is a great relaxation space for friends and family. Getting outside during the cold winter months can be difficult. Therefore, turning to your backyard into warm winter oasis may be the perfect solution. However, using your spa and hot tub safely during the winter is can help prevent possible accidents. We will provide with you with a few spa and hot tub safety tips for winter.

Spa and Hot Tub Safety Tips for Winter

Prepare and Use Extra Caution

Grab a robe or towel to block your skin from the cold wind as you walk to your hot tub. A pair of sandals or slippers will also keep your skin separated from the cold.

If your Dimensions One Spa or hot tub has a lid or cover, remove it. Make sure to remove any frost or ice from the lid or cover before removing it.

Have an Exit Plan

Getting out of your hot tub in the spring or winter doesn’t typically present a temperature shock to your body. However, this isn’t the case when it’s chilly outside.

Therefore, before getting into your hot tub, make sure to have dry, fluffy robe or towel nearby within arm’s reach. If the ground outside is cold or damp, place the robe or towel on a chair or stand. You can also wrap it in plastic or another cover to keep it from getting cold or wet.

Maintain Proper Spa or Hot Tub Water Temperature

Anytime you use a Dimensions One Spa or hot tub, water temperature is vital. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, water should never exceed 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Your body can’t properly regulate its temperature through perspiration while immersed in warm water.

If water temperature is too high, or, if you remain into the water too long, this can be dangerous. Your head and shoulders that remain exposed to chilly air may confuse your sense of internal temperature; you may be hotter than you realize. This can cause heat stroke, light-headedness or fainting, or drowsiness. This may also lead to unconsciousness, which can result in drowning.
