May is National Water Safety Awareness Month, a time to reflect on how to properly protect yourself and your loved ones while swimming or engaging in other water-related activities. With that in mind, here are some tips on how to stay safe in and around your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub:

Supervision

Likely the most important aspect of Water Safety Awareness Month is to make sure to always supervise any children that are in or around your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. By leaving kids unattended while in your spa, you’re asking for trouble.

Education

A little bit of knowledge can go a long way, so it’s important to teach anyone who will be using your hot tub regularly about any potentially problematic areas, such as drains and filters. As a hot tub owner, you may also want to get certified in CPR in the unlikely event that you’ll need to use it.

Swim Lessons

Because of depth of a hot tub, it’s suggested that any children using the spa are able to swim. This will give you increased peace of mind when it comes to their safety.

Lock Your Spa

Having a spa cover is crucial, especially for owners of in-ground spas. That’s why all Jacuzzi® Brand hot tub covers come with a clip system, and all control panels have a lock mode. Refer to your Owner’s Manual for details on how the lock mechanism functions on your particular model.

Water safety is an important aspect of owning a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, and these are just a few of the steps you can take to help protect those you love. Learn more about hot tub safety tips specifically for kids.
