Hot Tub Rules of Use

GUESTS MUST NOT USE THE HOT TUB FACILITIES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES IF YOU HAVE NOT SIGNED A DISCLAIMER

 

ALCOHOL AND HOT TUBS DO NOT MIX

Drinking alcohol in a hot tub can be dangerous.  A hot tub will cause your blood vessels to dilate which in turn will cause your blood pressure to rise.  This means that alcohol will get into your blood stream faster and circulate through your body faster which will have a greater effect on you than normal.  The heat of the tub and the alcohol combined can cause dehydration and possible heat exhaustion.  If you feel any of the following symptoms then get out of the tub immediately:

Light headed, dizzy, nausea, rapid heartbeat, faint or fatigue, headache, extreme sweating.

GENERAL 

The hot tub required daily testing and possible chemical treatment every day in order to be enjoyed safely.  On check in we will agree with you a time in which we can come to the cabin and administer such, this process should not disturb you and, barring any issues, will not take any longer than 15 Minutes.  It is usually done mid morning to ensure the hot tub is then perfect for the rest of the day and evening.

 

We will always demonstrate to all of our guests on arrival hot to access the hot tub, remove the cover and operate the jets and lights.

 

The cover must always be replaced when not in use to maintain the temperature and ensure safety at all times.

 

RULES

 

FAKE TAN MUST NOT BE WORN IN THE HOT TUB UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE

 

Guests MUST shower before using the hot tub, to ensure the removal of moisturisers, perfumes that will affect the clarity of the water and chemical balances, this ensures a pleasant experience for all.  Guests should also shower after using the hot tub.

In consideration to the neighbouring properties the hot tub jets should not be used after 2300, no music is to played after thhis time and we ask if voices be kept to a minimum volume, thank you.

Please take care when using the hot tub and do not run when wet underfoot.  A mat has been provided to place at the entrance to the hot tub to avoid slip hazards, please use this.

Drinks can be consumed around the hot tub area, please do so with care and try not to spill drinks into the water.  Plastic glasses are provided for hot tub use but should a normal glass be broken in the tub then IMMEDIATELY vacate the tub then turn the jets off if they are running. Please report this to staff so that it can be dealt with as soon as practical.  If it happens late at night then please refrain from using the tub and notify staff in the morning.

Make sure all users know the main isolator power switch is in case you need to power off in an emergency.  DO NOT use this to turn the hot tub off or power off unnecessarily as this will stop the heater from working and the tub will cool down.

Take care when entering and leaving the hot tub, muscles may be relaxed enough  to make you unsteady.

DO NOT USE THE HOT TUB CONTINUOUSLY FOR MORE THAN 2 HOURS AT A TIME.  This is first and foremost not good for you health and, secondly, running the pumps and leaving the lid open for longer will result in temperature loss and deterioration of water quality.  Recommended guidelines suggest that you should use a hot tub for 15 to 30 minutes at a time with a maximum of 45 minutes at any one time.
