“When you notice your skin getting red in extreme temperature, that is part of the fascinating and complex process your body uses to regulate its temperature,” said a SpaPartsNet representative

SpaPartsNet, the world’s largest spa parts supplier, today released a series of hot tub safety warnings related to hot water temperatures. SpaPartsNet’s experts detail how the body maintains temperature and how this important biological process can be suppressed in a hot tub without taking proper precautions. During cold weather, the body sends blood to the extremities and in cases of severe cold, redirects blood to the body’s core. In tremendous heat, the body sends blood to the surface to cool its core and then sweats to further the cooling process. SpaPartsNet warns that excessively high temperature settings for a hot tub can inhibit the body’s innate cooling system. The body works to maintain body temperature at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, and hot tubs set in excess of 100 degrees can be dangerous, especially if the person is dehydrated. In order to enjoy one’s hot tub safely, SpaPartsNet’s experts have released the following recommendations:
- Children under the age of 18 should not be in the spa if the spa heater has been set above 99 degrees.
- Anyone who has just finished a rigorous workout routine should not soak in spa water above 99 degrees.
- Anyone with high blood pressure or any type of heart condition should not use the spa above 99 degrees.
- Anyone who has consumed an excessive amount of alcohol should never enter a hot tub.
