If you love hot tubs but have started to get the dreaded hot tub rash then The Swimming Pool Store are here to help. The hot tub rash commonly occurs due to unclean water. It doesn’t matter if you have just re-filled your hot tub with clean drinking water; if you do not use specialist hot tub chemicals to sanitise the water then bacteria will thrive in the warm damp conditions. Similarly if you do not follow manufacturer guidelines then regular skin exposure may sensitise your skin due to a pH imbalance in the water.
The hot tub rash can make your skin sensitive and sore to the touch. It can make it uncomfortable to bath in the tub, especially with regular use. These symptoms are caused by water that is not sanitised; this can lead to the whole experience of a hot tub being ruined. The use of chemicals will kill any harmful bacteria and maintain an ideal pH level in the tub - this is essential for your own and other users’ health.
As a rule, if you follow the instructions and carry out regular tests, then hot tub chemicals will not affect users who have sensitive skin and will prevent any rashes caused by unclean water. By following these precautions the users of your hot tub can relax and enjoy the warm and invigorating beneficial qualities that your hot tub experience possesses.
Here at The Swimming Pool Store we recognise the importance of keeping your hot tub clean. Chemicals should be used due to the conditions in your hot tub being an ideal harbouring location for bacteria and other worrying germs. This means that if hot tub chemicals are not used, then you are more likely to get rashes and infections.
