Hot Tubs and Spas in the News for Safety Measures

The hot summer attracts children towards water to chill out. Places such as backyard pool, hot tub and spa are filled with fun. //But youngsters should be very for cautious and always follow the instructions of their parents. In some places to avoid facing dangerous situations parents have taken all the safety measures such as installing the pool fences and pool alarms. But in case of spas and hot tubs they fail to install the child proof safety measures as it is small and feel that it is of no great threat to their kids. But Jane Sadler, the author of the study proves them wrong. Whether in a pool or a hot tub, kids love to play games such as "hold your breath the longest."

In a hot tub, long hair can become entangled in a drain cover, causing an accidental drowning. "Never permit a child to play in a way that could cause the child’s hair to come near the drain cover," cautions Jane Sadler, M.D., family practice specialist at Baylor Medical Center at Garland. "Check the hot tub to make sure the newer type of drain covers that help reduces this problem," continues Dr. Sadler. And, call a pool or spa professional to check the drain covers if you’re unsure about the type of covers needed. Install a safety cover that can be locked when the spa is not in use.

In spite of parents’ efforts, naturally curious children can quickly move out of sight to explore. The locked safety cover eliminates a potentially dangerous situation. The hot tub water temperatures also can pose a risk for pregnant women and children. The hot water can raise body temperatures, leading to heat stroke and death. Make sure the water temperature never exceeds 104 degrees. “Hot temperatures also can cause drowsiness and unconsciousness, resulting in an accidental drowning,” says Dr. Sadler. Additional safety tips to consider: - Know the location of the hot tub pump cut-off switch so you can turn it off in an emergency - Consuming alcohol while using the spa could lead to an acci dental drowning - Check drain covers through the year; have a professional check them once a year. - Newer spas have safety devices that should prevent body entrapment. - Spa owners should be certain there are at least two outlets for each hot tub/spa pump and should request at least two drains for the spa.
