Do you have a hot tub? They are a beautiful feature in any property. There is nothing like soaking in a nice warm hot tub after a long day at work. Although hot tubs are great, it is important to remember they do pose safety risks to children. With that said, here are a few safety tips to keep children safe around your hot tub.
Install Anti-Skid Treads
Many children become excited at the thought of climbing into a hot tub. For that reason, they may decide to take it upon themselves to run on a wet surface even though they know they are not supposed to. Anti-skid treads help to prevent slips and falls in and around your hot tub. Slip-proof mats are another option to consider as well.
Don’t Leave Children Unattended
First and foremost, you never want to leave a child unattended around a hot tub. Just because the water isn’t deep, does not mean that your child is safe. Small children can still drown in shallow water. Always closely watch your child when they are in or near your hot tub.
Adjust Water Temperature
Hot tub water is too hot for infant and toddlers. Since this is the case, they should never be in your hot tub because it can quickly cause them to overheat. If a child is old enough to go into your hot tub, it is a good idea to encourage them to drink water while they are in it.
